I'm going to play the long game on this and wait for a $100 deal. Hopefully Black Friday in a year or two will do it.


In Topic: Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

This cannot be understated. I am in the shipping business and the bottlenecks are horrible. LA/Long Beach for example is the epicenter of all the problems. There are easily a couple dozen ships waiting to dock. After than, the average sitting time at the port for a dry import container is 30 days before it moves. Other ports have been getting worse as a result. On the east coast Montreal is on the verge of a port strike as their CBA is expiring and that will cause a ripple effect across the board. Trucker shortages were an issue in the US even before COVID, now it is even worse. A lot of talk about next gen console shortages has been towards computer chips and other resource shortages, but transportation issues can take some of the blame as well.

 

Things are starting to get better. Terminal workers in LA are scheduled to get vaccinated starting this week. Unfortunately it is going to be months before things get back to normal.

Yes. They also don't come with trading cards, in case that's something you're interested in.

 

Wow so I just did a Google search and it turns out my Windjammers is different from other ones. Oh well I won't cry about it. I'm just glad to have a physical copy.

 

I knew about the trading cards, but considering I only have one LRG copy it isn't a big deal I collect enough stuff.

Apologies if this a redundant question but I don't follow Limited Run games that much. Are the Best Buy copies usually a different cover art? 


In Topic: Best Buy GCU to be discontinued 3-1-2021

Losing GCU was the worst, but really the best thing that could of happened to me. I went from impulse buying dozens of games day 1 to buying almost nothing at launch. Now most of my purchases have been on Black Friday the past two years.

 

My collection isn't as big as it probably would be, but neither is my backlog!
