another one from LRG! pre orders for Thea the awakening open on 1st Oct. thats tomorrow. are lrg starting to over do it?

I figured LRG would escalate to four Switch games a month ever since PS Vita production ended. Personally, I'm alright with dialing back on retail purchases to have funds for the increasing number of boutique published games. But I'm a madman in regards to my Switch purchasing tendencies. The collectors with less expendable income are going to be annoyed.

Lol I’m with ya brother! Been pretty loyal to keeping up with all the boutiques. I’m only buying day one on the must haves, and if I have some extra scratch at the end of the month I’ll throw it at some other used games in good condition . Slacking with the extra scratch lately though wedding next month and just purchased a new vehicle.. what’s your switch game count at currently ? I know you are one of the more balls deep fellas on here .

417, not including 72 paid-in-full preorders with that count. Most of those preorders are for boutique and non-domestic import exclusives. In this busy fall season of releases I only have two North American games preordered. Ghostbusters and Forager.

@Magician - Snd here I was thinking I was pacing pretty well. Behind you by about 40 games.

shrug It isn't a competition of who has the most Switch releases. From that perspective, Youtubers like Destiny Fomo and/or JP Switchmania would be better benchmarks. They make my Switch collecting efforts seem meager. Their resources are on another level.

@Magician - Don't misunderstand, I wasn't trying to make it a competition. It's just interesting to where we size up, honestly just thought I was within the same ballpark as you, seeing how we're both often getting something somewhere.

Hmm, looks as though Shop4 is going to begin carrying Signature Editions. Those special editions Merge Games does for each game they publish physically.

Mary Skelter 1&2 to be precise, since Idea Factory is including the first game with the second.

It's a must-buy if you enjoy the dungeon rpg genre; Etrian Odyssey, Labyrinth of Refrain, etc.

P.S. - Hmm, looks as though Koei Tecmo is going to milk the Switch physical collecting scene dry. The previously announced Atelier Dusk trilogy is getting individualized physical releases in Japan. KT will be offering all three games in one bundle digitally. But if you want the trilogy physically you'll have to purchase them piecemeal.

Just so you know, the Japanese release for the Atelier games usually don't support English, so I wouldn't purchase these Japanese versions if you don't speak ze language.

P.P.S. - Maitetsu: Pure Station's collector edition has been finalized. $65 over msrp for an artbook, wall scroll, and mouse pad (I hate these things). Hard...hard pass for me. But hey...collectors gotta collect.

@Magician - I will eat that Atelier with pride if it had English on-cart. The last ones did not and made me sad.

I have the special edition trilogy box of the last ones. I set them aside as a Christmas present to myself. Genuine heartbreak when I put the first one in the system and the icon stayed in Japanese. I assumed that anything that released on the English eshop would just work in English with a physical copy.
As it is I'd rather hunt them down on PS3 than pay $80+ for digital games.

Edit: I'm holding off on pre-ordering FF VII/VIII and FF Crystal Chronicles until they're confirmed to have English because of the above experience.

I have many games, far too few of them played. Currently making my way through:
3DS: Fire Emblem Fates
Switch: Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, Witcher 3
PS3: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
PS4: Code Vein
PC: Total War Warhammer II
DS: GBA: SNES: GC: Wii:

FFVII+FFVIII both support English according the Japanese eShop.

And although English support for FF CC is unknown (I haven't seen a Japanese eShop listing yet), every FF game on Switch has supported English thus far.

@Magician
Thank you for the update. I'll pre-order FF VII and VIII. I still hesitate on CC.
Also Biomutant is coming to Switch? THQ is killin' it.
Pillars of Eternity II is my longest standing Amazon pre-order. Any word on a physical of the first game?

I have many games, far too few of them played. Currently making my way through:
3DS: Fire Emblem Fates
Switch: Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, Witcher 3
PS3: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Hmm, never heard of it. A Google search says it's an rpg series developed by Shiro Games, the same folks behind the rts Northgard. Evoland is rated 9/10 after 4,114 Stream reviews. Huh, sounds like a dandy.

[OT] I just placed my Christmas import order. Those physical release outside of Murica I just couldn't do without. FFVII+FFVIII, Doraemon Story of Seasons, etc. Other than my extreme interest in Heroland, I'm glad December will be rather quiet release wise.

Evoland is a very clever game. I'm quite a big fan. Though I completed the first and never finished the second. They aren't doing a two pack? They're in a two pack on the eshop.
