Alien: Isolation's file size of 17GB will probably disqualify it for a physical release.

I doubt Sega would eat the cost of a 32GB cartridge.

Would you pay $50 ($60 possibly) for a physical copy of Alien: Isolation on Switch?

Apologies if this has already been posted, but I don’t remember seeing it :

Another new boutique publisher added to the list, 1PrintGames. Their first 3 releases are Kero Blaster, Ittle Dew, and Death Squared.

You can only buy Kero Blaster for $34.99 or all 3 together for $99 right now. Separate Pre-orders for the other two will be available at a later date.

That's certainly news to me. Thanks for that, Miadaskate. Unfortunately, this new boutique publisher doesn't support Paypal yet. Their FAQ page mentions that they're hoping to make that payment option available sometime next year. Until then, I'll have to pass.

Edit: P.S. - Looks legit as 1PrintGames and Nintendosoup are one in the same.

Shop4 has created a page for AO Tennis 2. The publisher is BigBen, so naturally I assume this is just a reskin of World Tennis Tour. BigBen is still my least favorite publisher in the business. I usually disregard their releases, but collectors gotta collect.

The Gardens Between goes on sale on Thanksgiving (next Thursday). This is technically their December release. Wish they would wait another week, honestly. Between family and plans for Black Friday shopping, I was really hoping I wouldn’t have to worry about limited games next week.

The collector’s edition looks big! 2,000 copies only.

I’ll probably just go Standard. However....that hardcover art book though....🤔

Between 11/24 through 11/29 we're now up to eight preorders opening. SLG x1, LRG x4, SRG x3. I really hope FPG doesn't open preorders for their next triple pack next week as well.

Shop4 has created a page for a Galak-Z & Skulls of the Shogun double pack. I usually don't care for the publisher, Maximum Games, and their game selection. But both of these games are solid choices. Maybe the best-reviewed games Maximum Games have released physically to date.

Some deep discounts have begun. I grabbed a few things off Amazon NA at 50% off or better. Time to check the other regions as well I suppose.

Capcom continues to be equally accommodating and frustrating as a triple pack for DMC is revealed. DMC1 will be on the cartridge while DMC2 and DMC3 will be download codes. So it's cool to have DMC1 on the cartridge (it's the only entry in the series I have nostalgia for), but this will probably upset fans of DMC3 who would've appreciated a physical copy of that game on Switch.

@Magician Wow. Paystation store says DMC HD Collection is 10.36 GB. I'm realizing now, Switch cartridges are so expensive that they can't even put the DMC trilogy on one cartridge, or even two low capacity cartridges.
https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP0102-NPUB30988_...

If Metroid Prime Trilogy is 7.7 GB for Wii U, how confident are we that they can put it on a cart? They should be able to fit it... on an 8GB cart. Right? Logic being, even though cards are rated as having X GB of capacity, actual free space is around 90% of that rated capacity. I mean, it kinda seems possible a Metroid Prime trilogy could come as a cart with download code. And sarcastically, can they afford to put it on a 16 GB cart? I know this may have sounded dumb, but it doesn't sound impossible.

@Woomy_NNYes Well actually it depends. If a company is sure that their products will sell well because it is that GOOD they will put it all on the cartridge without being afraid of losses just like CDPR with the Witcher 3. They are just afraid that this old collection will flop on sales and they will lose money on the cartridges.

I want most companies to use the Limited Run Games approach and let the players place pre-orders that covers the price of the cartridge. And only manufacture as many as are ordered. No loss only profit.

The next Southeast Asia physical exclusive is...Romancing Saga 3.

Hmm, I would've preferred Saga Scarlett Grace, but whatever.
https://nintendosoup.com/romancing-saga-3-switch-physical-edi...

P.S. - Romancing Saga 3 is open to preorder at Play-Asia. It supports English, so if you're mildly interested don't hesitate to place an order.
https://www.play-asia.com/romancing-saga-3-remaster-english-c...

P.P.S. - According to today's Japanese eShop update, ESP Ra.De. will not support English, much to my disappointment. Although it is a shmup (a genre not heavy on text), there are a substantial number of unlockables. That will require menu navigation and more than a basic understanding of the language. So it looks like I'll be skipping the Japanese release, saving $100, and hoping someone releases this physically in the west.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And for those who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving....Happy Thursday!

What’s the verdict on The Gardens Between? CE or Standard? I’d like to get the CE, but I don’t really have room for them anymore. Standard it will be for me!

Happy Turkey Day indeed.

For me, I always opt for the bundle. Although the CE is very nice, December and January will be murderous on my wallet, so I have to plan my purchases accordingly. And besides, I have full confidence in SRG's choices in which games to publish. With Shelter Generations being the least interesting choice thus far, imo.

And as an aside, the bundle mentions another RPG and another 2D platformer as a part of the bundle.
