I posted in your thread over there.  I'm going to keep an eye on it and bump it if I have to so we can get some official response on the issue from the mods there.

Heads up everyone who ordered Retro City Rampage for Nintendo Switch from VBlank. I got an email today stating the following info:

“ The Standard Edition pre-orders are now in and start shipping tomorrow! Stay tuned for your tracking numbers. We're super excited for you to get them.

Packed to the brim! The Switch Collector's Edition will now include 4 alternate covers instead of just one!

The Collector's Editions are taking a bit longer to finish assembling than anticipated, but don't worry! They're right around the corner, and we've put this extra time to some good use. To make up for the wait, you'll now be getting a full set of FOUR alternate covers instead of just one. In addition to these extra covers, we've also given extra love to the first one, and transforming the plain old white background into something much more special!

Assembly should be completed next week. After that, the finished orders will be sent to the fulfillment center, then sent to you. Thank you so much for your patience. We apologize for the delay, but hope these exciting new covers will make the wait worth it! “

Now I really wish I went with the Collectors Edition since there’s 4 awesome covers for it. They show a picture of the 4 covers in the email. They’re pretty damn cool. Will def be keeping my eyes peeled for the “2nd chance” batch of CE’s.

Also, the cancelled orders of Shadow Warrior 2 are available for purchase at Special Reserve Games. They also have copies for PC & also PS4 copies of Strafe.

Anyone who missed out should jump on this as copies go for $85 to $90 at the moment on eBay. So $45 shipped is a great deal imo especially since Shadow Warrior part 1 is also included & it’s on its own disc with SW2 on a separate disc. Not to mention the cool extras including a kanji & emailed steam codes for both SW1 & SW2. Great lil package. I personally sold my steam codes on eBay so I own my copy at about $27 give or take a dollar. This deal has it’s own thread but it’s also relevant to this thread so I figured I’d post it in here as well for those CAG’s that might overlook the other dedicated thread for SW2. This will be the last chance to get this game in physical format for a decent price. Don’t hesitate if interested.

Decided to grab a copy of Strafe PS4 and a spare SW2. Shipping was only $5.82 via FedEx Smart Post. Not sure why others had higher shipping with multiple game orders. Maybe it got adjusted since.

Finally recieved my Culdcept LE from Amazon. They took a week before they shipped, charged me because it's overseas, and worst of all they sent it in a bubble mailer. The wait and cost I could have lived with but shipping an LE in a bubble mailer overseas? Ridiculous.

I'm not super familiar with ordering from these fellas. Any chance you could post a link to where you can deserve the game?

Go to their Twitter, and they have ordering information there. I haven't ordered in a while, but you normally have to place request by email, and they send you a Paypal link. They where supposed to upgrade their site awhile ago to handle international orders and what not, but I don't know if that ever happened.

 

They also have an Ebay account, but I don't have access to it currently, so maybe someone can pot it. But on there, you pay more as it's going thru Ebay, and the fees and shipping cost more, which you have to pay. Heavy Arm is a stand up operation, so no worries, but ordering can take a minute, but Steve(I think that's his name) always gets back to you pretty quickly.

This is an update concerning the promo item for Ni No Kuni II CE. According to the Best Buy Rep, the promo item will be added to existing orders. I personally would still keep an eye on the product page to see if orders can be placed again Also keep an eye on your existing orders to see if they really add the promo item. He also suggests that there could be an email update sent to you concerning those existing orders.

 

May or may not be shady depending on how you look at it, I guess if you would rather just guarantee one now for peace of mind, you can order one of the other editions of the game, keep the promo item, and refund the game new.

I would actually be surprised if they didn't automatically add it to preorders.

 

As an example, I believe that some best buy reps were previously telling people that they would have to reorder if they wanted to get the "Cappy" coin bonus with their pre-order of SM Odyssey, but this turned out to be false. I preordered that game back in Jan with VCO promo and didn't really care about getting the coin, so I left it as is. Now that we are close to release day on SMO, I got an email out of the blue recently that said they noticed my order doesn't include the coin, and that they were adding it to my order at no charge.

I like arcade racers so am kind of interested in trying this game, but $49.99 seems a bit high...

With my original order, it was once they got stock, and I believe they sent out an email stating shipping had started. If and when you have any issues, their CS was top shelf, so unless they've gone done hill in a few months, you should be good.

Odd seeing Microids as the publisher. They mostly do adventure games.

 

Any hope of Syberia 1, 2, and 3 being physically released on Switch in the US? Would like to get them, but not sure it's worth the cost to import them.

What I want to know is if this is open world like the TDU games.  I loved the open world free roam in TDU2.

Sadly, they use those fold over cardboard mailers, which aren't great, but not terrible. If the item is solid, and they fold and tape it right, it can be pretty good. I had two orders, and one arrived mushed, and the other was fine. But my contact had shipping send a new one which was probably the best packaging job I have ever received.

 

Someone went bonkers on reinforcing the box. I honestly think I could have drove a car over it, and it would have held up. LOL He said he was going to tell shipping to pack it right, and they damn sure did. And the replacement was done ASAP, and I didn't even need to return the damaged one, awesome service.

Received my standard edition physical copy of Retro City Rampage for Nintendo Switch today from VBlank. It came very well packaged inside a small (but sturdy) white cardboard box secured with tape & it had some packing paper wrapped around it on the inside. Looks like anyone who ordered either/both versions shouldn’t have to worry about receiving damaged goods.
