This was a disaster, of course. I really wanted the Gris Artbook bundle but their site crashed, and I was ultimately able to add it to my cart after a few minutes but of course, could not complete checkout as it kept crashing. 

 

These limited print companies really need to find a way to deal with bots/scalpers. Could easily just do a lottery system instead.

I really like how Super Rare Games does their offerings.

I haven't ordered a lot of their games (I have purchased four of their previous offerings) but anyone that I have wanted I was able to get without a problem. They have the games in hand and ship them right away and they only release one game every few weeks.

 

I ordered the recent 3-pack bundle because I was interested in ITTA and wanted to see what game two was going to be.

When they announced Project Warlock as game 2 I jumped on the bundle because I had an interest in that game since release. They announced the final game of the bundle today and its Lonely Mountain Downhill with the DLC. :-P

 

I've never taken a chance with the mystery bundles but was happy I decided to this one time.

I'm always worried one of the games in the bundle is going to be something i have no interest in playing.
I'm looking forward to getting these soon.

The Annapurna Interactive Ultimate Collection for PS4 is back in stock on Gamestop.com!

https://www.gamestop...n/11109215.html

 

For anyone unfamiliar with it, this box set is $179.99 and includes 8 PS4 games in individual cases with exclusive covers:

  • Donut County
  • Gorogoa
  • Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition
  • Outer Wilds
  • Sayonara Wild Hearts
  • Telling Lies
  • Wattam
  • What Remains of Edith Finch

It sounds pricey but it works out to about $22.50/game, 2 of the games are exclusive to this set (Telling Lies & Gorogoa), and most of the other games that previously had limited physical releases are currently selling for $50+ each so I think it's a pretty fair price.

 

The set already sold out at Best Buy and doesn't seem to be available at any other US retailers (aside from a Limited Edition version at iam8bit that doesn't include individual cases and costs $20 more) so it will likely sell out soon.

Has anyone's Ruiner from SRG moved? It's been 12 days, but it hasn't even been picked up yet. I saw they were having delays with the winter storm, but I see multiple in-hand eBay listings.

I just checked my shipping for Ruiner (from SRG) and I received my copy about 3 weeks ago. Feb. 16 to be exact. It is possible that games shipped in a later batch were delayed by the weather, but they should have started moving by now. You can reach out to them, but I have heard they are very slow to respond.

I fully expect LRG to take it on, but maybe it'll go the Streets of Rage 4 route and get a full-blown release at retailers as well. :pray:

Monster Prom XXL edition for Ps4 is for sale at Red Art Games for anyone that's interested. I thought it was fun, & had a good time playing it.

3DS has another physical release due out this year, was honestly shocked given the length of time since the last release. It’s a sequel to a early Neo Geo shooter, nothing mind blowing but looks solid enough. Both US and European versions are available and the game is available for PS4, Switch, and Dreamcast. Website is having issues right now.

I would love to get the US version, but dont want to deal with the high shipping and foreign transaction fees of a European website.  Is there any indication this will actually be sold somewhere that is US based (I'll settle for LRG at this point)? 

 

Wording does indicate 2000 copies will be sold elsewhere:

 

"Limited to 5000 numbered copies + Certificate of authenticity Official game PixelHeart.
(3000 copies available on our site)"

My guess is these guys as they have partnered before:

Read somewhere that the 3DS version will have stereoscopic 3D.

There are coupon codes you can use to drop it a bit. Just used 'NEWPIXEL' for 15% off, there might be others out there.

Looking at the link above it shows VGNY SOFT... checked their website and they are selling it direct as well.   Infact VGPlus has text on their site for USA customers to buy from VGNY and not from them.  Here's the URL:
