Lol at talking about amazon being on time and best buy not. I haven't had an amazon order show up on the scheduled date in months.

Too much real life, not enough time for video games

I can’t speak for other people’s experiences; only mine.

For me, that’s how Best Buy has been. I actually can’t recall the last thing that has arrived on time.

You are paying $120 a year for Amazon and aren't paying anything for Best Buy shipping. Unless you are elite plus I don't know why you would think you would get 2 day delivery?. It's okay if you aren't happy but trying to draw a parallel between a service you pay for and one you don't...just doesn't hold water. If you want guaranteed release date then do in store pickup? I don't know what you are expecting otherwise. Amazon has been getting bad about taking pre-orders for games and movies then not having sufficient stock to fill those orders. Every service has it's issues.

Looks like

:ps4: Giana Sisters: Director's Cut

:ps4: N.E.R.O

 

 

are OOP now.

I have Giana on the Wii U and really have no interest in the other two, luckily. I saw some guy trying to push a copy of NERO on Facebook the other day for some ridiculous price, but no one was biting.

Cat Quest is still fairly new, so it might get a reprint. The devs said they were looking into a second run on Twitter a few weeks back.

Strictly Limited sent out an update saying they had a production issue with the numbered stickers for Gryphon Knight Epic affecting less than 4% of copies.  They will be boxing up and shipping out the games next week.  I appreciate that they took the time to write up an update and didn't leave everyone hanging.  As long as I receive my game I will continue to be a customer.  I understand issues happen and am just glad they took the time to contact everyone.  So far their customer service seems promising.

That's good to hear, as I'm looking forward to their future Vita release(if and when any happen). So long as I'm not a seeing any complaints along the Special Reserve lines, I should be good. LOL

Cat Quest is back on Amazon for $19.99. It was sold out since it launched and got a little pricey.

Physical PS4 release of Wuppo: Special Edition is GameStop exclusive (they paid Sodesco for it). Starting to get HTF, comes with a physical OST.

Website doesn't say GS exclusive but the price stickers in-store do and Sodesco confirmed it.

Do you know if the Switch version is going to get a standard physical release?  As long as one of them gets a standard physical release I won't have to lay a stupid amount of money down on that overpriced CE.

Switch is the ONLY standard release for this title from what I have read.

I think it already is hard to find.  I think it was planned all along considering what NERO stands for (Nothing Ever Remains Obscure).

Umm, I was wandering through Walmart the other day and noticed Joe's Diner for the PS4. I just Googled it up because I've never heard of it. All the ESRB copies I can see for sale online are coming from Canadian sources. Is it available in America? It seems a little odd that some game would be Canadian bargain bin exclusive.

UIG is in the process of releasing a number of their games including Joe's Diner, Pineview Drive, Professional Construction Simulator, Professional Farmer 2017 Gold, Professional Farmer American Dream and others in both the US and Canada.  I have been in contact with them and they are having trouble getting the games to US retailers and US Amazon.  At present they are in Walmart Canada, EBGames Canada, Amazon Canada and a few of the games have just hit Amazon US and Walmart stores in the US.  I will tell you that there is no difference between the US and Canadian versions as I bought American Dream from Amazon US and Professional Farmer 2017 Gold at Walmart US and they have bi-lingual French and English ESRB ratings and basically the European back of the game with German, French, English, etc...text and even a British flag next to the English text.

Joe's Diner is easily the worst game I've played so far on the PS4. It totally belongs in the bargain bin wherever it is found.

Yeah. It'll do well enough in a bargain bin though. The back of the box makes it look like it might be an interesting spooky game. If not for my hesitation to buy totally unknown games I would've bought it on the spot.

There is so much limited stuff being released now I seriously need to do some quality control.  I already decided I don't need any of the farming sims and most sports games.  Joe's Diner actually looks like it has a neat premise, but the reviews have been horrible so I am currently undecided.

I buy all the ps4 PA limited editions and I pick and choose the LRG ones. They've been releasing too much stuff I couldn't care less about lately. That's pretty much it

I went back and forth for a couple days on the Bleed double pack before eventually deciding to pass. I passed on What Remains of Edith Finch also. I haven't decided on Gang Beasts but I'll probably let that go as well. And I've cut my number of LRG purchases down pretty drastically. A year ago I might have purchased these "limited" type games on impulse, but there are so many coming from so many different publishers now that it isn't fiscally responsible. I try to watch more gameplay vids now and try to imagine how much I'd really play the game, in addition to the quality control you mentioned. I may regret missing some certain game later on, but my backlog is already too large to be too bothered by it.

I love these limited release of games, but the resellers really screw over fans.....

 

looks like chrisz300zx is one of the worst offenders, Limited Run Games doesn't see to care or want to protect their fans..... but he's screwing people and abusing PLAY ASIA policy with bleed. he's reselling FIVE copies ! I reported him to PLAY ASIA, I'd suggest you help as well.... let's keep the games to the fans, and

not the resellers who try to screw us over !

The game is still in-stock at Play-asia.  This is not even remotely close to a problem for anyone.

Play-asia can't do a thing if he's using 5 friends/family to buy copies. Even without friends/family you can easily double purchase limits just buy using separate payment sources and shipping to your work.
