I'm game for some of these. I like the white case, and I like the D-Pad offerings. I'll bust out my Dremel, my tri-tip screwdrivers, and swap out the exterior.

In Topic: Limited Run Games Thread - Thimbleweed Park [PS4/Switch] on 3/30!

You can buy Thimbleweed Park for 9.99 on PSN right now


I own Thimbleweed, twice, on different digital services. I'm going to get the Switch version from LRG anyway.


To be fair, the Switch is a really great platform for this type of game, so there is some value there. And there are some games that I would not be willing to double-dip on in this manner. Point and click adventure titles happen to be my jam. In fact, I'm going to have to twist my own arm in order to avoid getting the collector's edition. I think I can pull it off. I do NOT need the collectors edition, but the allure of that original Lucas-Arts style box is strong.

You maniacs ordering these games on your phone while in your bath are crazy. Every time I order a LRG title, I do it at my Linux desktop PC. I clear Firefox ahead of time, and don't have anything running in the background. My Linux box is hard-wired to my Gigabit switch, which is in turn hard-wired to my router and cable modem. Everything is as fast and stable as I can make it. With a business model like this, I don't leave anything to chance if I don't have to.


Doing this sort of thing from a mobile browser with a wireless internet connection while lounging in a bath tub... you might as well hire a man-servant to order games for you.

They were only selling around 1200 copies, which is a small run even by LRG's standards. So it's not really surprising that it sold out quickly. I snatched a copy, even though I already got the game digitally in a previous PSN sale. (for very little, I think it was going for only $3 in that sale) The game has some decent reviews, it's not a bad game. It shouldn't be surprising that there is some demand for a physical copy, even if it doesn't have the kind of high profile that usually results in fast sell-outs.

Pearl and Marina amiibo pre-ordered. Got it locked in.


I know it isn't the cheap-ass way to go about things, but I don't like lining up at stores unless I have to.
