#14524797 Limited Run Games Thread - Nothing is Limited, We Make Everything Now!

Posted by cheapgamer 23 on 16 March 2023 - 01:31 AM

How is me posting here a PR tour? I was here long before you. Please stop making stuff up to satisfy your conspiracies.

Does anyone have any questions about our update I can answer?

“ Moving forward, we will craft our Collector’s Editions with items we can acquire without complications”


Does this mean less steelbooks? Personally, no steelbook means no buying for me. 


Hefty hardcover artbooks and full soundtracks, heck yea. Plus, a steelbook is a perfect collector edition for me.




Stickers, posters, acrylic stands, patches, postcards, figures and other junk is basically worthless to me.

So can someone remind me how this works? Best buy now has the Like a Dragon Ishin steelbook which I really want however not sure I want the game quite yet. Since you can't order the steel by itself I have the steel pre-ordered for shipping with the game for pickup. Is this a case where they won't ship the steel until the game is picked up? My plan was just have them ship the steel and I don't pick up the game, they cancel game and charge me the $10 or whatever for the steel but not sure that'll work in this case? Should I just do pick up for both game and steel and then return the game a few days later? What's the normal way y'all do this?

Don't do instore pick up for it, have it shipped out to you. Then return the game instore without the steelbook, it will be $10 for it.


Last time I tried to this, I was told it comes as complete package in store and they can't just take the game back, has to be both. Apparently, the system won't allow a return of just the game. I never had an issue with returning just the game if it was shipped to me.

I am all for the end of this limprint shit. Less releases I will most definitely take. 90% of these physical games should never been stamped onto a cart in the first place.


I hate wanting to buy a digital game and not, because I am psychotically compelled to get the physical version or even worse, expecting the game to get a physical release and holding off. I finally broke down and bought Dicey Dungeons for $3.74 on the eShop only for Super Rare to shit it out a few months later.


Most of the companies are shit for various reasons (Red Art publishes garbage, Super Rare somewhat publishes garbage, LRG takes forever, Strictly Limited takes beyond forever and son) so a contraction would be nice. The only company worth a fart is Special Reserve, who don't take an eternity, keep to their times and have a curated selection that is nearly devoid of crap. 


The whole thing is already starting to collapse. Word is the slabbed market got punched in the dick. That's a nice juicy domino to fall. I'm all for it. Make my collection worthless again so others can actually enjoy game collecting like I did 20 years ago. A lot of people are going to shit their pants soon, specifically Pokechaos3... I mean Josh when he realizes how badly he overpaid for his brute force collection over the past 2 years.

Special Reserve has gotten really bad recently as well. With many of their releases hitting retail and huge delays in shipping. Them also knowing it is going to have a retail release ahead of time, and not willing to cancel orders already made. Insane shipping prices, as well as being more expensive than the retail release.

I was browsing amazon.de for steelbooks and another one I didn't know existed, AC Odyssey. More pricey than the Horizon one, but I ordered it.




It's different than the Gold edition one.

How is the shipping for single steelbooks? Bubble mailers or boxes?

I don't know if this ships to the US using the method mentioned earlier for the other two collector's editions.

What method?

What about this is highly quality? Didn't they say a while back that were swamped with offers so they had to stop saying yes to every game and the selection would be more selective?

Yep, and somehow nobody was talking about it. I was just as surprised when I found out.

Everybody is talking about it in the gamestop thread. You really didn't need to make a thread just for this.

Instead of DLC they should, I don't know.....maybe fix their game first?


The thing is a giant mess. I regret picking it up on launch. (Damn my weakness for steelbooks and pre-order outfit DLC...)

You should of done what I did. 

1. Pick up the game with the steelbook and preorder dlc

2. Return the game and keep the steelbook and preorder dlc


Of course I did this after founding out how bad the game was.

#13948976 Refurbished Nintendo Pokemon Ultra Sun (Nintendo 3DS) $14.10 - Sold By 3...

Posted by cheapgamer 23 on 19 February 2018 - 02:23 AM

Some on their own website. $17.20 for Ultra Moon https://vipoutlet.co...nintendo-3ds-2/

Hey! Pikmin for $15.95 https://vipoutlet.co...n-nintendo-3ds/


Both are "Like New"

Tons of other games with good prices but this website looks really shady. Anyone have any experience buying from them directly?

The Bayo special edition on amazon jp is from a 3rd party seller, that does not ship to the US. Been trying the last 30 minutes to get it to work, thought I was doing something wrong.
