Definitely interested in getting Ori, but not THAT interested. I'll just wait for a standard physical release and if it never comes, oh well.

@Monkeido

I wouldn't worry, the Ori games should be getting individualized releases at retail. Although they'll probably be Best Buy exclusive like some of the other iam8bit releases were (Sayonara Wild Hearts, Gorogoa, Kentucky Route Zero, etc.) and without all the extra swag, naturally.

Some bigger titles like Sayonara Wild Hearts and Untitled Goose Game are also getting European releases, that are available on the likes of Amazon and 365games

Since the Ori games are quite big themselves, they'll probably see a similar release.
Titles like Donut County and Gone Home don't seem to be getting this treatment, though Gone Home did get a reprint through their site.

@Magician I'm not from America, so buying at/from BestBuy would be difficult for me, but thanks for the heads-up!

@RupeeClock I hope this will be the case for Ori as well! Thank you for letting me know. ^^

My SLG order for Darius Cozmic Collection has been stuck in Chicago for two weeks now.

USPS service request submitted.

Triple pack from 1Print just shipped.

Triple pack #1 (Castle of Hearts and Shadow Bug) from FPG due to ship this week as well.

My triple pack order from 1printgames hasn't shipped yet, but it should be any day now.

Special Reserve Games were due to open pre-orders for The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse, and Crossing Souls tomorrow, but they've pushed this back to September 29th now.
I'm interested in Swords of Ditto anyway, not Crossing Souls.

Same! Glad they held off for a few more days. I get paid on Friday!

Even so, I'm sticking to the collector's edition I pre-ordered. Pricey as it may be it's a lovely looking set and doesn't take up a huge amount of space.

Same for me with the Ori CE; I bought the CE assuming the Ori games would have individual releases, but the CE swag was what sold me.

P.S. My SLG order for Lode Runner Legacy is preparing to ship. Now if only LRG production would get caught up. I have around twenty-five individual orders on hold through them. Lots of releases (Streets of Rage 4, Brigandine, etc.) being held because other games in those orders are still in production. Ugh, waiting, it's always the hardest part.

@Magician
I know exactly that feeling with LRG right now. Long fulfillment times are normal, especially with bundled orders which is usually what I do, but I've placed ten separate orders this year and only the first one from January 1st has been fulfilled.

My order for Vitamin Connection Collector's Edition was back in January and it still hasn't completed production. Mighty Switch Force Collector's Edition was completed quite a while ago too.

My order for Atooi Collection 3DS has also not shipped just because of a Fangamer pin badge I ordered...

It's a gorgeous looking set, that's for sure! I've never played Ori and haven't been interested enough to buy it on Steam in all these years, so the price was way too high for me. I'd only spend that on a CE of a game I know I love.

Yeah I’m definitely just going to wait for standard Ori copies. Nothing in that CE is worth $149.

Those of us that patronize Best Buy (and I sure did with GCU), my local store called me to advise they are closing at the end of the year. (I had a game being shipped there to avoid $ for home shipment) I have a store at the other end of town and that will remain for now. I suspect most of us buy our physicals online anyway versus in-store. Likely national press release from them soon.

When Toys R Us closed, I was crushed - bought most of my 8-bit Nintendo games there as a child - there and Kay Bee Toys.

@Belexes - This would explain the price hike of some Walmart games.

After a kerfuffle regarding a stocking issue, Void Bastards finally shipped from AmazonNA.

I think this physical release has "hidden gem" potential.

@Magician I'd have bought that right away (already own it on Steam), but since it doesn't have gyro-aiming, I'm still on the fence. Definitely a great game though!

Looks like the Japanese physical release of Shiren the Wanderer 5+ will support English straight away.
