Yeah I'm still a bit puzzled on why PJM2 CE for PC and PS4 are still up. It seems they have tapped out the wallets of Sony fans, and of course PC gaming is in a funky spot right now.

But I have to gush over the other game of this week. Cosmic Star Heroine is made by a tiny duo development team. Really wish Their games would come to switch. Cthulhu Saves the World is one of the most charming games I've ever played with such good music. I would have been happy to see Cosmic Star Heroine come to switch too as I never played that one. Maybe one day.

So anyhow, Early June I'll be getting in Liar Princess from Japan. I'm excited for that one.

It'd be nice to see LRG employ an 'every-other-month' release schedule between their PS4/Vita and Switch titles. Today, SMRPG for Switch. June would be a PS4/Vita release. July would be Switch, and so on. I think their customers would be receptive to that (I know my wallet would love it).

I agree completely. I can’t keep up financially so I chose to break the “gotta have them all mentality” with SMRPG since it’s not my thing. For me, it’s better the cycle ends now than 6 months from now on their 13,534 Switch release when I can no longer justify buying every release.

From what I can tell from forums, lots of PS4 collectors arevexhausted from the sheer volume of their games and their release schedule.

2 games monthly is intense.

Got my standard version from LRG, I'm happy.

It's NISA America that's my kryptonite, I feel compelled to purchase each limited edition they produce.

NISA was my kryptonite as well. I spent over $500 to order all of the LE for the rest of the year. But I forced myself to cancel them and buy the standard versions because I knew it would end up being too much

Not going to happen.... they have to feed the machine they created. With 15+ employees and a bunch of titles signed up even before the switch rolled around they are going to ride it till the wheels fall off. The range will be 12-24 a year from them (closer to 24) for switch games. They are the largest publisher of individual titles on playstation and soon will be on the switch. What they need to stop is doing a CE for every other game they publish.... that’s the real heart burn. Along with printing reverse covers and sealing them both ways to make collectors feel they have to get both. Until people vote with their wallets this madness will continue. For example if you are a PS4, Vita and Switch hardcore variant collector you would have had to buy 13 games today!

I'm sorta surprised with only 500 copies available, that ShaqFu CE is still available. Even at $120 or so, it's still a small enough production run to justify, no?

@TalonMan same for Signature Edition Games Yonder.... that’s only 500. two things hurting it

1. Not promoted as a US Version originally
2. Doesn’t appear to come in a box and is not a true CE

Yonder is only getting a 500 release, too? I didn't see that noted anywhere on their site...? Although, at least for that one, being that it's PAL only I can understand the smaller draw to it - ShaqFu, on the otherhand, has a US option (and a 5% chance for an autographed copy). Just seems weird to me with the volume of insane collectors out there for the Switch, that this one would still be hanging around...

The option to select a US versus Pegi version was not available when I purchase it.... only T-Shirt size.

Yonder went up with 500 copies and has about 200+ left

@TalonMan you are a world class web developer you know how. View the source code.... on Shopify sites it shows....search for inventory or inv. You will see the amount remaining. LRG got hip to it once a couple people kept twitting the Thimbleweed numbers so they start with false numbers now for the pre-orders. When Shaq went up I purchased when it was 498

That's awesome - I see that Shaq is down to about 25 US left, and about 60 PAL... ...EXCELLENT future knowledge!!

Edit:
And for added bonus - Human Fall Flat (about 500) and Flame in the Flood (about 300)

You have now entered the Matrix. I’m not so sure about Super Rares numbers.... I think they may have drop stock because they had a large drop one day. Not sure but a hunch. But yeah it’s cool to make informed decisions

For me it was just that there was nothing special about it other than the small print run. The game and case is the exact same as standard which is $40, so you’re basically paying $85 for a bag, a hat I don’t want, a shirt I don’t want, and a vinyl I’ll never listen to. Just not worth it to me

Safe to assume that the next few LRG releases will have CEs as well? Anybody find any details?
