Ganestop has a BOGO on pre-owned (so buyer beware). Some decent selections. Was able to secure a Giraffe & Annika copy finally.

Alright alright, can we agree that the physical release for Waifu Uncovered sets...some sort of new bar for anime smut on the Switch? It has to be the most NSFW game on Switch. And here I thought DoA Xtreme 3 was the high bar for lewd, cultured experiences on Switch. Well, not anymore.

Waifu Uncovered reminds me of a Rodney Carrington bit.

@Magician
Considering that it's an Eastasiasoft game, I'm surprised that it got an EU physical release, with actual pornographic illustrated card inserts too.
I always would've thought it would've been exclusively distributed through Play-asia given the sort of things they sell, but evidently not.

Gryphon Knight Epic and Clockwork Aquario preorders from SLG are live.

Just standard copies for me.

I went for Clockwork Aquario, and also Cotton Reboot.
I checked out a trailer for Gryphon Knight Epic and I wasn't very impressed with what I saw, on top of sidescrolling shooters not really being my thing.

@RupeeClock same here. Gryphon Knight looks terrible imo, the reviews were mostly negative as well..

Gryphon Knight is 90% favorable on Steam - I ordered it and I am not big on side scrolling shooters.

It's just a guess, but I feel there's a strong chance we'll get a physical release for the SaGa Frontier Remaster coming next year.

@Magician I hope so! love ps1 JRPGs, childhood nostalgia.. @Belexes I saw some pretty bad reviews about the game and the graphics don't do it for me. It's all sold out now which is a bit of a surprise, I thought Clockwork Aquario would have been the first to sell out.

@Solomon18
I'm with you that I'm surprised Gryphon Knight sold out, but I'm not surprised that Clockwork Aquario is still available.
It's a completely unproven title since it's had no prior release, it only has the promise of being an old Westone project.

Print run of Clockwork Aquario is 3,500 and Gryphon Knight is 2,400 - if that explains at all why Clockwork Aquario remains. (32% left as of this writing)

@Belexes
That's just for the standard edition anyway.
Across the three editions of Clockwork Aquario, there's 6,000 Switch copies of the game, and 3,600 PS4 copies.

For Gryphon Knight, it's 3,000 Switch copies, 600 included a soundtrack CD.

SLG probably got the right idea about levels of demand for Gryphon Knight, but probably over-estimated demand of Clockwork Aquario and the lavish collector's editions.

Whelp, that's another I missed out on, Gryphon Knight is likely going to be a scalper's dream now that I gotta scour for one.

Responsibilities be damned.

A tweet from Super Rare Games suggests that they may be selling some leftover stock of previously sold out games this month.

This is keeping in mind that Super Rare Games don't have a release planned for December.
Retailers keep a small amount of stock for replacement of orders that are lost or damaged, and eventually sell that off.
Limited Run Games like to do this around New Years.

@RupeeClock - Good news for me, cause that may likely happen with Strictly Limited too. Missed out on 2 there due to their odd timing of releases clashing with personal priorities.

In other news, I just want to make a PSA for everyone: Keep track of your shipments this time of year. Porch Pirates become increasingly common when people are ordering online more often. Luckily nothing has happened to my games, but we have had a pin and a bag of dog treats stolen.

Looks like SRG are doing mystery boxes like LRG did in the past. I can't see the appeal of the lucky dips; I need to know what I am buying. I suppose if you have the money to spare it can be in your favour because some of their titles are worth more than asking price. Anyway, they will be up for grabs on Dec 3rd if anybody else is interested..

Pikunika and Heave Ho also availble via LRG with alternate covers. Speaking of LRG I just got my shipping noti for Wizard of Legend. They are also almost ready to ship out Blaster Master Zero..

Looks like the USPS lost my LRG orders for Shadowgate Remake, Panzer Dragoon Remastered, and Forgotten Anne. Bleh!
