Well...my Slime San was delivered to the wrong address yesterday. Thankfully I was able to get it.

However...I ordered Cave Story+ from Best buy website. They CLEARLY show the cover variant, so I ordered it. Nope, I got the original cover. Now I have to make a return. I thought I was getting one thing and didn't. Say what you want but they advertised a certain cover and I didn't get it, so I'm upset a little. I can do without it but I would like it.

Reports are swirling that the Japan-only physical release of Onimusha will support English.

They did the same with me with The Binding of Isaac. On their site it said the Launch Edition with the brown cover and goodies clearly pictured, yet when it was delivered it was the blue one. I requested a return and they just told me to keep it and they refunded the money, so I sold that one and doubled my money lol

@The_Legend77 that variant cover is hard to source the only 1 I saw was on ebay for 80au dollars but someone bought before I could. the jp version has identical reversible cover with english spine so thats the route Im taking..

@Magician

So This War of Mine is the second game that's been linked to shop4megastore that has made me do a triple take. So I perused the sites Switch catalog and I have some questions.

Space Hulk, Warhammer 40k Deathwatch, Rollercoaster Tycoon Adventures, and This War of Mine.

Of those 4 that interest me personally, I only new of This War of Mine even coming to the system, let alone getting physical. Are these PAL exclusives? Are they in NA but retailer exclusive? Why haven't I heard of these releases? Space Hulk comes out in 9 days!

I feel like I hear about a decent number of Japan exclusive physical editions, but I don't get news of PAL exclusives.

I have many games, far too few of them played. Currently making my way through:
3DS: Pokemon Ultra Moon
PS4: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, Horizon Zero Dawn, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
PS3: PC: Switch: DS: GBA: SNES: GC: Wii:

Signature Edition apologizes about lack of customer service excellence, hires additional staff. New packaging and shipping options with tracking available.

I still have not received a single order from them yet. I placed one order for two Signature Editions on August 17th and another two Signature Editions on August 31st.

Yes, there have been a number of PAL-only exclusives over the past year and a half. Without rattling off a list of games, I would assume around twenty games have been released in Europe only and not in North America. That number doesn't include the German-only exclusives either, of which there are around ten games or so. And even though shop4megastore is a good source for ordering PAL-only exclusives, even they don't open preorders for some games. I had to acquire the physical release of State of Mind elsewhere.

Dev for a game called Hazenut Bastille has confirmed that a backer level will include a Physical Switch release. I don’t know about you folks, but after Indivisible, I’m totally over Kickstarter exclusive physical releases.

Yeah I think its a cheap pot shot at collectors. Imagine how people who bought mighty number 9 feel.

honestly a good deal of the Europe exclusive stuff has been shovelware. The Germany ones are specifically horse and real life job related shovelware.

Nothing besides that It got delayed and they annoyingly keep sending out updates every couple of months. I was just using that as an example for why I won’t do that again. I just don’t like the whole idea of it.

Katelynn might, I personally don't keep track of each and every physical release. As hirokun said, a fair number of games are straight up shovelware, but the same could be said of any region. However, there are some solid games as well. Taiko no Tatsujin, Super Chariot, The Count of Lucanor, etc.
