Argh, I'm definitely interested in The Lion's Song and The Flower Collectors, but I'm not quite convinced it's worth owning them physically. The dilemma made even worse by the fact I already bought (but never played) The Lion's Song on sale digitally.

Demon Throttle from Special Reserve is up, although it's an open preorder that runs into October.

So...no rush.

That actually looks quite good and is definitely tempting me to buy it.

I have purchased one item from First Press Games before, it was the GBC physical release of Tobu Tobu Girl Deluxe as a gift for someone, and yes it really is an excellent package.
I only ordered standard edition releases for each game, but I'm looking forward to them.

@Magician
Funnily enough, Demon Throttle looks better when it's not under extremely heavy filtering like the reveal trailer in Devolver Digital's absurd "Devolver Max Pass Plus" presentation.
I haven't decided if I'm going to get The Talos Principle or The Disc Room yet, but if I do, I'll grab Demon Throttle at the same time, probably at the end of the month just before pre-order window closes and after I get paid.
This has been a surprisingly expensive month for me and LRG's presentation on Monday or Nintendo's reveals on Tuesday are probably not going to help.

Yeah, LRG's presentation on Monday is making me sweat. I assume that from next week and onward LRG's distribution of Switch games will increase from four to six games a month to a minimum of six games a month and possibly more. It seems they're entering into agreement with more publishers every passing month.

Kind of scary. I buy several games, but my budget isn't unlimited.

Nintendo's presentation is less stressful. Most of the games shown will have hundreds of thousands of copies available, if not several millon. Making it easier to wait for a discount six to twelve months after release. Unless it's some miracle port like Xenoblade Chronicles X or something.

I wouldn't be able to show restraint.

I'd insta-buy whatever $90 LE for XCX Nintendo decided to throw our way.

LRG3 just wrapped up.
Here's all their announcements in order, though details of which platforms they're releasing physically for was not clear in many cases.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors + Ghoul Patrol
Superhot
Double Dragon & Kunio-Kun Retro Brawler Bundle
River City Girls for PS5
River City Girls Zero
River City Girls 2
Strife
Full Shantae series for PS5
Bloodrayne Betrayal Fresh Bites
Haven (not on Switch)
Skatebird (plus an August 12th digital release announced)
Huntdown, features an impressive looking collector's edition set that features a retro-style action figure
Axiom Verge 2
The Takeover
Dusk
République
Going Under Internships Are Heck
One Step From Eden (in English...)
RWBY Grimm Eclipse
RetroMania Wrestling
Castlevania Requiem - Symphony of the Night + Rondo of Blood (not on Switch)
Castlevania Rondo of Blood TurboGrafx CD English localised release

Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

It wasn't quite the mindblowing or exciting reveals of years past, but some cool albeit stuff in there.
Of course I have to say something about One Step From Eden, I'll end up selling my JP physical copy because it's multi-language excluding English on purpose.

The Huntdown CE is up on LRG right now.

I wanted a physical copy of Huntdown, but not for $80.

Only 1,800 copies of the CE as well.

@Magician
Wow, I thought the presentation was lacking in important information, but leaving out that a game is on sale now, and is not an open pre-order?

I'm with you that I'm not down for putting $80 on a game that doesn't have a standard edition edition, and that I'm not desperate to get.

Looks like this'll be the my third time buying Double Dragon & Kunio-kun, and I just dropped $10 on a digital copy not too long ago.

Huntdown in the LRG e-mails says $59.99. Then you click on it and $79.99. Makes me wonder if a non-CE version is planned?

@Belexes
I sure hope so, because I would pick it up.
The weird thing is that the packaging makes it look like an LRG numbered release, but it's actually a distribution release. That usually means someone else is distributing the game in other territories.

There has to be another distribution of hunt down, right? That’s only 1800 copies. The minimum print for switch is 3000 if I’m not mistaken. Can’t imagine they’re just gonna eat 1200 copies

RupeeClock

@SpaceAce13
I thought a minimum print was 1000, with orders in multiples of a thousand.

RupeeClock

SpaceAce13

You bet we’ll may be right. I’d be bummed if this game only got an $80 physical release… but we’ll see. I’m not jumping in at that price though I do want the game @RupeeClock

Well, CE or not, missed my chance again.

These last couple weeks are just straight draining on the soul. Not just because the money, but how MANY boutiques are just launching an all-out war on us trying to just track them down.

DOUBLE DRAGON & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle (Switch) - Probably not! Still debating it as I care only for few of those games.

Those are the games I really liked from LRG.
Little disappointed that there were no news for the big games like DooM Eternal.
