I just hope that they use better plastic than actual Saturn cases; those things were terribly brittle, and would shatter if you looked at them wrong.
That has been a whole thing and part of the whole reason they got into this physical business. Listen to that first Retronauts episode with LRG from 2-3 years ago. They go over exactly this being a major motivator.

Did anyone do the preorder at Limited Run games today? I ordered Panzer Dragoon and Shadowgate. I have never played either game so I'm excited.
Going to also pre-order both with Arc of Alchemist when it's available in a couple of days. Still deciding if that Saturn controller is worth it...

I don't believe this has been posted here yet.


I collect horror games of all types, but I think I'm going to have to draw a line before purchasing Slawaway Camp.

Any word yet on physical copies of Ori and Cuphead?
Cuphead will have it when the Last Course DLC is out some time this year.
Ori no idea but don't anything was announced yet
nothing was announced for Ori. it's super likely in terms of how high profile this is but gets a bit wonkier considering MS is involved and that might make retail publishing more complicated for the smaller ones and they apparently aren't interested in doing it themselves (atm).

Edit: Disregard original post/suggestion. Someone else said it.

BTW: Lmfao at 2k's X-Com, Bioshock, and Borderlands releases. IIRC X-com only has the first two missions on an 8GB cartridge.

These companies don't even try.

Really? Disappointing... What about Bioshock and Borderlands? At least a complete game of the collection there?

I'm kind of wary towards this company....can't really say why.

While it's laudable they are clearly stating these are preorders and are not limiting the numbers of the games, I find it very very strange that they will only produce said games if a certain numbers of orders is reached. Aside from this status bar on the product page that doesn't seem very transparent to me....and will they REALLY refund me or will they pull a Warned Collectors one day?

Really have an odd feeling here but I'm sure they are legit. Wouldn't have hurt if they had introduced themselves on their site more clearly though.

What a shame "Rolling Gunner" is with them though. How could LimitedRunGames miss that one?

I'm confused about Guilty Gear, the physical game has released some time ago, is it because it's Deluxe Edition? The Day One Edition I got already had some extras.

no this is how all of them are. this is superior to codes though since you can resell the full collection and don't basically lose whatever the code-based game(s) are.
That's a good point, didn't think about that. Still they could have done better. Actually, even if I've seen some negativity about the release I'm pretty happy about this port release...Love these games and never playe Pre-sequel and XCom2... hopefully it's a good port.

Now where are those Jedi Knight Switch releases Limited Run Games? :)

Got my pre-order on Divinity 2 in! I won't miss it a second time. :P

I'm tempted to buy Panzer Dragoon from lrg. I've never really played a rail shooter though. I wish they put out a demo so I don't potentially waste $30.

Also ditto on the Jedi Knight idea. Add in Alien: Isolation too while you're at it! Please 🙂

I just got an email from Pix'n Love telling me that the Shockbox special edition of Samurai Shodown has been delayed because the merchandising that comes with the game.
