Ok I'm confused. Is this something real they are going to release?

It was already released, believe they only sold 84 copies? There's one on ebay for like a grand

This whole Poop Slinger thing seems like a viral marketing technique to me, to be honest.

 

You know those other copies are out there and coming back. No one is gonna print the 1500 or whatever minimum copies through Sony and then willingly take the hit on 1400+ of them as an April Fool's joke. Either that or those discs are mock up coasters that don't actually play a game.

8 copies of it (about 10% of the total sold) of Poop Slinger are already on eBay at absurd prices. I wish I could say I'm surprised.

For some reason World War Z is an obscure physical title it seems.  Best Buy is sold out and so is Gamestop.  Just throwing that out there.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned in here yet that VBlank will be releasing a final run of Retro City Rampage DX (Vita) this upcoming Wednesday at 1pm EDT.  3000 copies it would seem.

With all the clusterfuck about Poop Slinger who would've thought it was real? Not to mention Douglas Bogart from Limited Run said he wanted to do this before and someone beat him to the punch. I still think LRG is behind it no matter how much they deny it.

I still half think LRG did it but who knows, be curious to see where the rest of the games go, really sad I missed out never even saw anything about it

Anyone can just add a fake return address, but the postage does specify that it was mailed from the zip code 29547 in SC. This happens to be ~2.5 hours from LRG headquarters in NC. I'm convinced that LRG are in on it, or that they know the culprit. They can easily tout that it wasn't them, even if they know who it really was.

Also, that return address is for a Goodwill. And a sizable one at that, not something that a small company like "Limited Rare" could afford to lease.

My point was more so that while we can confirm the shipping zip code, the Goodwill facility is likely part of the joke, and not actually the "real" return address.

Okay, so it is "real" but is there an actual playable game disc inside?

Yes

Yes, a trusted member of one of the Facebook collecting groups I am part of opened one of her two copies and inserted the disc and it was fully playable.

I wouldn't call it obscure. It's a pleasant release that is surprisingly very enjoyable for those who want to play something similar to Left 4 Dead imo

In Canada at the moment, it's available online on BB, EB and even Walmart. But no listing on amazon.ca

On the latter link, you know if that's the same game as what was on the vita? I was eyeing that on strictly limited, but the price was turning me off

According to everything I've seen it is a brand new title in the series and should be a sequel.

Yup, Fresh is a new entry in the series. I love the look of it, so i hope that the physics and level design are up to the same quality.

FYI, RCR Vita is up at Vblank.

I am shocked that RCR is still in stock at Vblank.

Limit of 2 helps a bit. Plus I think they had previously said they weren't going to do another release of Vita version so people who really wanted a physical copy probably just ponied up for the 1st one.

So is Shakedown: Hawaii only getting a physical release for the Vita version through the VBlank store?  That's all that I've seen them mention and their store only currently shows the Vita physical version.  Would be nice to pick up Switch and PS4 physical copies as well.

I believe the reason that has been mentioned is due to the worry of the Vita physical not happening due to the March deadline, and how these PSA's are only to keep the base from rioting. LOL

 

In the past, every version ever offered was from Vblank, so no reason to think this release will be any different, unless they end up with some huge distro deal that covers retail. I'm pretty sure the emails have mentioned the PS4 and NS as coming soon as well, just not a "911" in the grand scheme, so they haven't really been discussed past "coming soon".

I have ordered several exclusives from Play Asia with free shipping.  However with their spring sale, a couple items (non exclusives) dropped down to the point where I am considering buying them.  However even with economy shipping, they are charging almost $10 shipping for 2 switch games.  Is there a free shipping code or a way to get free shipping on their non exclusive games?  Sorry if this is off topic but I figured you guys on this thread have experience ordering from Play Asia.
