Hey, so this is a random question but does ANYONE know who works the PR on Rockstar's soundtracks? Have a friend wanting to do a feature on the RDR 2 soundtrack.

Any way to import the Dark Souls set to the states or will someone else reissue them here?

I haven't tried from the EU but generally you would have to use a forwarding/proxy service. I have used some multiple times for shipping from JP. Maybe someone else can make a suggestion for this instance.


I feel like I remember someone here mentioning getting multiple copies as multiple people ordered using the same service and the manufacturer/distributor combined them into one shipment.

I'm pretty sure I've seen people using a site called "forward2me" to get these to the US. I've no experience with them, though, so I can't say how easy it is.

^ Yep. That's the one I used. Their service was excellent, if a bit expensive. I think I paid about $35 GBP to have it shipped from their warehouse to the US. This is because they will NOT ship via Royal Mail, only couriers like DHL. Makes sense, given the liability for losing items.

That said... Bandai EU did screw things up at the time. Their shipping labels/details did NOT show my name, but someone else's. Forward2me was gracious enough to confirm with the other person that my shipment was indeed not theirs, and they released it to me. Had that person acted differently, I never would have got my item.
I would hope they've sorted things out since winter 2017, though.

Ship To Shore to release the Celeste: Farewell DLC OST on vinyl and tape:

Black Screen is turning 4 and they're running a sale with up to 50% off all their own releases (except preorders):

Personally, I'd suggest everyone to check out Spaceplan. It's an absolute steal at €12.

Been a while since I popped in here. Did they ever re-release Horizon Zero Dawn on vinyl?

Oh my lordy. I almost missed my GotG vinyl for Bloodborne. Ordered!

Neat idea, and kudos to 2 Mello for putting together a fun album, but every time these tribute-style vinyl releases come out I'm reminded sorely how many classic games still haven't seen release (and probably will never see release).

How often Mondo ship? I ordered the SotN album from them on July 20th and still nothing.

Last time I ordered a vinyl was in October for SotN and it took a few weeks to make it... no idea what their fulfillment is like but they've always got stuff happening so they may just be a bit behind.

I got an email from Data Discs that the Sonic 3D 3xLP vinyl set will ship... earlier than expected. :)

First game soundtrack I ever bought on vinyl was Red Dead Redemption. I doubt this release will be as limited as the first game's was.

Looks like a beautiful release, but I wish we could get the full instrumental score.
The instrumental score was released maybe a week or so ago. I'd be very surprised if that didn't also get a vinyl pressing in the coming months. There are some great tracks missing from it though which is disappointing, still it's better than nothing.

I'll have to pre-order that MGS release as soon as it appears on a UK storefront too. I'm really not fussed on the artwork at all (The Gray Fox one is fine) but MGS1 might actually have my favourite soundtrack in the series despite the later ones obviously having more elaborate productions.

Don't care for the Mondo MGS cover, but I'll have to scoop anyway.

And thanks for the heads up on the RDRII Amazon listing. Got that on preorder.

I'm really tempted to pay scalpers for the SDCC exclusive. Between this cover and the MGS pins I'm not sure they know what they're doing.

Up on Mondo now. Not liking that green cover, but one of my favorites games for sure. I have this and Xenogears, so now I have my two favorite 1998 releases on vinyl.

^ I snagged it.

For what it's worth, there have been WAY worse covers from the likes of Mondo, iam8bit, etc... over the years. I still groan in disdain anytime I see the sleeves of iam8bit's Uncharted collection and Mondo's Castlevania IV on my shelves.

Yeah I'll give you that. The Castlevania 4 is possibly one of the ugliest vinyl I own. Compare it to Outrun, in which you can literally select different backgrounds, and its even uglier.

I grabbed the Solid Snake version of MGS. Not an amazing cover, but meh. And the green smoke disc looks pretty sweet.

I know it's incredibly picky to moan about but the green motif is just ugly. I can live with the cover art but when I think of the MGS1 title card, the blood red is what immediately pops out. The rear with the smoky background and REX is really nice, mind.
