Teslagrad (Switch) preorder is up on Amazon and only $19:99:

 

https://www.amazon.c...deogames&sr=1-1

 

The weird thing is the link references Ziggurat for PS4, which is a $20 game, but the description and release date all point to the Switch version of Teslagrad.

I just received my PS4 and Switch copies of Minit from Special Reserve Games... shipped in a bubble mailer. Wtf... They obviously arrived damaged, so I'll have to contact them. My copies of Messenger came recently in the normal SRG box, and arrived pristine. Did anyone else get their copies of Minit shipped in a bubble mailer!?!?

Mine came in the same box that the Messenger was shipped in. That is beyond dumb to me. They clearly put effort into making their products look nice, why piss it all away by shipping them in a bubble mailer? Did they charge you any extra to ship two items?

Guess he's got to find some way to get rid of all those tiny poor quality figures.

No, they didn't. It's pretty weird for sure... I already contacted them about it, and I'm waiting to hear back.

The same thing happened to me. I contacted them yesterday for replacement cardboard boxes and got this response today:

“Really sorry to hear this. I will be able to get you new boxes in the near future, but we are currently dealing with a high volume of requests right now, so please bear with us”

Wow. I wonder why they are getting a high volume of requests...

  1. Damaged items (it happens, shipping services aren't kind and apparently they used bubble mailers)
  2. Incorrect items (some people got their games for the wrong platform)
  3. Misdelivered items (shipping address changes didn't take in their system)

Those are the issues I know of, at least. After having to delay Minit and Messenger so long, I'm guessing they wanted to get everything out as quickly as possible and it backfired on them.

I also got my games today and they were also kind of thrown into a large bubble mailer.  Luckily (and surprisingly)  they arrived in good condition with only one of the game boxes showing a slight crease.  Not enough for me to contact them about.

 

Anyway, I noticed the return address said "SRG Returns" so I have to wonder if these were games that were originally sent to wrong addresses and returned and re-packaged (and since they were out of their custom shipping boxes they went in bubble mailers).  Just a theory of course, but it is very odd that SRG packaged them in bubble mailers, considering the high quality of the game boxes and the hard work that went into creating them.

Riot: Civil Unrest (Switch version) is down to $9.97 at Amazon.  I think they may be price matching Gamestop.

I got the bubble mailer but by some miracle it was fine. I REALLY like the Special Reserve packaging, Nice touch to have the dev names on the spine.

Looks like Aggelos is NOT getting a NA release, they confirmed. Best bet is the region free European one - I purchased mine off Playasia and paid $7 for shipping. It’s all pending availability so hopefully it ships ok

VGPlus also has them, might be cheaper depending on where you are: https://www.videogamesplus.ca/

 

Came out to ~$20 each in USD. Just make sure to use PayPal when paying, people have been saying for a while their native checkout has vulnerabilities.

Note sure if this is considered "obscure" or not but PA announced a Switch version of FF7/FF8 remastered. Says both games are on the cart and no download is needed. Pretty sure FFVIII Remastered is digital only in the US so this might be the only way to get a physical copy for the english version.
