Doom Eternal now digital only, no physical.. WHAT!!??
Super Rare Games' last release of the year is Ghost of a Tale.
Unusually, the official Nintendo UK site shows a listing for this game with a physical release not under Super Rare games.
I grew tired of SLG dragging their feet with my lost order of Darius Cozmic Collection. Mercifully, I found an eBay listing only $30 over msrp. The next listing is $80 over msrp, so I'm glad to have it in hand before reseller pricing gets out of hand. Hopefully SLG's "investigation" into my missing order ends with no results and I at least get my initial payment back.
Switch Physical Collection - 673 games (as of November 28th, 2020)

@RupeeClock Ghost of a Tale looks gorgeous, but I know zilch about it. Is it any good?
I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@GrailUK looks decent but doesn't seem to run that smooth on the Switch, runs better on the PC, the graphics look muddy and washed out to me, there are bugs and frame rate drops. I will pass. I don't like shabby ports..
@Magician might have to do the same for Darkwood. It has been sitting in the same spot for 14 days now and wont budge. C19 still messing up the postal networks..
@Solomon18 Oh no, I'll have to try to find some Switch footage
Doom Eternal physical release isn't entirely dead, but it is on life support. Apparently the cost of 32GB cartridges is still outrageous. It's the reason we'll probably never get physical copies for some games with a file size over 16GB. Alien Isolation, Resident Evil Remake HD, etc.

Since LRG have already worked with Bethesda to make a physical release of Doom 64 a reality, I can only hope they make Doom Eternal possible.
Whilst they're at it, a compilation of Doom 1, 2, and 3.
Or just three individual physical releases as is usually what they do even for games that would easily fit onto a 1GB cart, like Blaster Master Zero 1 and 2 together.
The RLG people are the heroes we need
I am ok to pay more to get a proper physical releases of the games I want. But I see many people having problem with them. They do not force anyone to buy.
Btw any news when the Castlevania Collection vol.1 will hit LRG?
Also it seems you guys follow the news so any chance of Immortalf Fenyx Rising being all on the cart?

@RupeeClock - I can definitely see Doom Eternal getting a physical treatment through LRG, and with a pseudo-bonuses to "hide" the expensive cart price behind it as a baseline.
no doubt LRG will be releasing more Doom titles in the future..
Those Black Friday deals are live, folks. The price finally felt right for Supermarket Shriek and The Survivalists, so I grabbed those. $25 per for G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Mario & Sonic Tokyo 2020 seems fair, but I passed. Anywho, some great deals out there, as usual.
I intend to grab copy of Immortal Fenyx Rising in a trade at launch on December 3rd. If the trade is successful I'll let you know about the cartridge situation with the game. But considering Ubisoft want to treat the game like a pseudo live service, I assume a fair chunk of the game won't be on the cartridge.

@Magician I’m prolly gonna drop a good $60-$70 this week on digital games. Can’t wait to look through all the games on sale!

@Magician Nice! Thank you in advance!
If they put the base game on the cartridge I will get it 100%.
I hope you all are doing absolutely fantastic this season in spite of much opposition otherwise.
The Black Friday seems to have some hidden deals out there, so make sure you dig through some. Best Buy has some unlisted games for 15 bucks. Got 6 games for 120.
Where are the best Black Friday deals? @Magician Where did you get the Survivalist?
@MasterBlaster - So far my best finds are at Best Buy. 6 games for 120, not bad.
That is also where I found The Survivalist for 25.
AmazonNA had The Survivalists down to $20 back on Sunday morning.
But quickly became out of stock, naturally. Tis the season.
talk about a slow news week.. Next up from Strictly Limited is the long lost arcade game Clockwork Aquario. pre orders open on 29th Nov!

That's one I've been looking forward to.
As far as I can tell that's not the only item opening for pre-order on 29th Nov.
There'll also be "Last Labyrinth" for PS4 VR, and "Gryphon Knight Epic Definitive Edition" for Switch.
