Does anyone know if dimension Drive has shipped yet? I know playasia charged my card, but I haven’t received any shipping information or details at all

Yes, I got a shipping notice

I pre-ordered 3 games from Best Buy and it looks like my card was not charged until the final one shipped. All had different release dates. I thought that was odd.

@Gold_Ranger @Katelyn1223 - If you're importing to NA I notice it vanishes the moment it reaches the shores and tracking becomes moot.

Yea, I had the same thing happen with Human Fall Flat and The Flame in the Flood as well lol

Quite a few new Super Rare Games just got (intentionally?) announced by Beatemups over on Twitter. He shared a thumbnail of an upcoming video. Looks like Lover’s in a dangerous spacetime, the adventure pals, mutant muds, and Fairune so far. Pretty hyped about adventure pals!

They’ve teamed up with him to do announcements, which is pretty cool.

Edit: Looks like it was an unintentional annoucement as the tweet just got deleted.

Just got my Touhou Genso Wanderer Reloaded LE from NIS America. No sign of Shelter Generations today, maybe tomorrow? Sonic Mania Plus and Adventure Time should arrive tomorrow from Amazon. And Oceanhorn from LRG on Wednesday.

SRG's next game opens to preorders tomorrow, 12pm CST.

Legit. They finally decided to get good games.

Also him, does great videos and appreciate his candidness in everything. Helps me know if I actually want a game or not even if he doesn't. I hope this goes well.

Speaking of, I just got a shipment from super rare I did decided to pick up their first 3 titles just for the collection, but in the long run I may dump them. Still, those next games were ones I actually think will be good.

A lot of people are going to say you'll regret it, but looking at it from an older perspective I can tell you that at some point further down the road you most likely won't regret it at all. There are a lot of things I regret not doing in my life, but "not having a complete collection of X" isn't one of them.

I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings, so let me make it perfectly clear, if collecting the LRG games 100% gives you satisfaction and joy, by all means keep on doing it. But if it is stressing you out and you are doubting that it's what you want to do, I would take that as a pretty clear sign that you shouldn't keep doing it. Especially since you say it's keeping you from other games, possibly games you might like more.

My general recommendation for everyone is simply buy the games you want, with top priority given to the games you actually want to play.

A lot of people in this thread are going to say you'll regret it, because that's the very nature of this particular thread and the majority of the people that happen to be posting in here. Sure - if you're only looking to buy the physical games you're interested, than obviously LRG, SRG, SignatureEdition, etc. are of little consequence to you.

On the other hand, if you consider yourself a "completionist" (as @Katelyn1223 alluded to), then I'm sorry but I will fully and wholeheartedly disagree with you and that you will absolutely regret not getting these games now while they're available at retail cost - especially since LRG has made things a tad less stressful by having full two-week open pre-ordering on their standard releases.

Anyone that considers themselves a "completionist" will absolutely be kicking themselves when the Switch lifespan comes to an end and they know they do not have the complete library... ...and that now, in order to fill in those holes, they are at the mercy of scalpers on eBay.

Let me be clear - I'm absolutely NOT suggesting everybody must go out and buy all of these games!! Hell, I've got well over 100 Switch games at this point, and I've probably played about a dozen of them. But I'm absolutely a completionist and I want my 100% library (like many others in here) - and the only way I will ever have that, is by getting these games along with the regular mainstream ones. That's what being a completionist collector is all about...

I agree with @TalonMan. I get that LRG isn't retail, but they are still North American releases. Lost Sphere was online only, but it's still part of the set. To call oneself a completionist, you can't shrug off certain releases just because of how they're released.

As was stated, if you want the entire set, you got to have them. That's how I see it. You may not regret it now, but if you want them later and can even find them, have fun shelling out two to three times as much.

This is why I'm focusing less on retail and more on LRG, SRG and stuff of that nature. Many retail games will be easy to find for a while (though we do need to watch out for the low run/poor sellers like Panzer Dragoon Saga on Saturn) do collecting those won't be as difficult. However, these purposely low print games like LRG will be the ones to get NOW!

I admit it's hitting me hard, but at least I'll have them now and not at the mercy of scalpers years to come. I say think about what you truly want...if you are a completionist, you got to get everything physical in an area...that's how I see it. As just a collector, you don't need every release, and you just focus on what you really want. Big difference but everyone has their own opinion on the matter.

You could always go standard on these LRG releases. $30 isn't bad at all and will save you money versus the CE of the games. I don't want to sound rude, but that's just my opinion. Do what you feel is best for you, cause it doesn't matter what we say...it's your collection.

SRG finally getting away from the survival genre and into other genres. The two platformers (the adventure pals, mutant muds) look fantastic! I'll be anxious to see Beatemups video and he is allowed to release it. I religiously watch his channel and RGT85's.

...and yes, this is exactly what I've pivoted towards with my collecting, as well. I started out initially buying every single game that was released - but once the calendar flipped to the new year, and LRG and NISA and others started ramping up their Switch support with limited release games, I had to make the decision that makes the most economical "long term" sense. And getting these short-lived releases now at a retail cost, is my priority!!

Regular (non-Nintendo) mainstream games also tend to go down in price over time (a lesson I've known for a long time, but already got burned on with the Switch during my initial purchasing run). I was buying everything at the start, because I feared the Switch would eventually move to nearly "all digital" environment - I absolutely did NOT expect such a large physical library already, a little more than a year and a half in! So paying full price for newly released Lego games and then seeing them tossed out in bargain bins at less than HALF the price I originally paid (less than 6 months later!!), really hurts! So unless it's something you know will have a short release run, waiting on mainstream titles (unless it's a game you absolutely want to play, of course) is definitely the smartest move! You obviously need to be careful, because you never know which mainstream game will be that Panzer Dragoon that disappears all too quickly (Could MUSYNX be that one?? I can't seem to find it anywhere and eBay sellers have it listed at twice the price already!!).

My full intent is (and will continue to be) a "complete" library, but my focus is specifically on the LRGs and SRG and NISAs - type of games that I know with ABSOLUTE certainty (based on their documented and well known status as "limited release"), will be impossible or extremely expensive to buy after the fact. If I have any additional funds for mainstream games that I actually want to play right away, I get those as well - but my focus will continue to be on those games that have a strict release cycle, so I don't get burned on the backend.

Wait, for NISA, are you talking about the CE’s being limited? Or just their games in general? I thought their games were just regular retail releases after the preorder period

Well, I think this is my end for a complete collection lol. I really wanted a complete Switch collection to go along with my Wii U set, but I can’t warrant spending the money on games like this. Especially with the ridiculous shipping.
