I have both versions of Ghost Blade on Dreamcast and both on PS4. I've also got it on Steam. So yeah, I suppose I can buy it again... Lol

This isn't a small or obscure game relatively speaking, but Dragon's Crown Pro for the PS4 did have a fairly small production run and might be rare in the future. Best Buy just dropped the price to $29.99 (23.99 with GCU):

So, what's the deal with Cat Quest for the Switch?  I saw on Amazon that the release date is now showing 10/9, but last week I saw a copy available to purchase in store in Best Buy - which would have been around its original release date.  The Best Buy website is also listing 10/9 as a release date so it appears some stores may have gotten it in several weeks early?  I didn't try to purchase it at the time but I have to wonder if the system will allow it considering the new release date.

It came in a month early and not all stores check dates. It wouldn't ring up anyway.

Original release date was last week and a few days before it was set to release the date got pushed back to 10/9.   The Gamestop I go to did get copies of the game in last week but they aren't able to sell it until 10/9.

Haven't seen it mentioned yet, but PSIKYO Collection Vol. II is available on PA and if you buy both, you get 5% off as a bundle deal.

 

Probably going to pick this up now and combine it with a coupon.  Times like these I wished I actually had one of those coupon they send with orders for $5 off, but $3 off will have to do.

I want to order this, but I know as soon as I do they'll announce a Switch release for it like they've done for literally every game they've published.

well at least its cheaper than LRG. they wouldve sold it for $40 plus $5.50 shipping. and LRG announced they going to tax on some states.

Well, it's not like LRG had a choice to collect taxes or not! The happy days of buying online to avoid taxes are over, I'm afraid.

I don't want to incite panic, but figured I would mention that the PSVR title Astrobot Rescue Mission seems to be in limited stock for whatever reason. It just came out Tuesday but Best Buy is already sold out on their website and I bought the last copy from their stores in my entire city last night. Called a couple of Gamestops and the stores only seemed to have received 1-3 copies each. It is easily available online at Amazon and Gamestop and I'm assuming may get a restock but after the fiasco with the low print run on Job Simulator, figured I should say something just in case.

So, it looks like Red Art games has put up their next release: Ice Cream Surfer (PS4/Vita). 2000 copies of each. It is hard to imagine them ever selling out, so there is probably no need to hurry.

Considering that Bard's Tale still has around 2500 copies of 3000 left, I am not sure it would be wise to give this company money for a game that may get cancelled. I bought Bard's Tale, and at this point I am halfway expecting to never get it. Also, 20 euro for the game and 10 euro for shipping seems a bit nuts for Ice Cream Surfer. As you say, no need to hurry. I'll wait and see if Bard's Tale sees the light of day before seriously thinking about buying Ice Cream Surfer.

I posted this in the GameStop thread earlier, but thought I’d post it here as well.

New copies of Owlboy have been converted to pre-owned. I checked yesterday and nobody had a pre-owned copy, but just about every store had new copies. I looked a little bit ago and it’s the complete opposite.

The Switch version is the only one that’s been converted so far. It’s a good deal if you still have Elite Pro.

Everything about this SCREAMS amateur hour. I'm the last guy to complain about "all these new limited run-ish companies" but COME ON put some effort into it at least.

 

LRG still on top for me, SLG and Play-Asia tied for second. PA is especially killing it with the SHMUPs, even if they're mostly euro / non-Japanese. SLG well, some hit or miss titles, but I'm excited for Project Hardcore, now that is really setting them apart.

Did you happen to look at the PS4 version by mistake? It’s only the Switch version that they converted. If not, you might keep an eye on it. It may just need another day or two. When I picked up a copy yesterday they hadn’t even changed the sticker yet, because it just got converted that morning.

SRG... they release what, 2 or 3 games a year? Why would they go for The Messenger out of everything else they've teased or alluded to? I'm already dreading buying Metal Wolf Chaos off these guys. Super expensive shipping to Canada and finicky web store.

I'm pretty sure they mentioned they are doing The Messenger. They have a good relationship with the developers.
