Buyer beware, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2. The file size for the base game is 12.2GB. With the msrp set at $40, chances are Activison have cheapened out with the physical release. At the worst, I assume Activision opted a 2GB cartridge and will ask customers to download 10GB+ for the "physical" copy to function.

@Magician - Ugh, Jesus it just makes me so sick with them. And any idea of Crash being remotely close to Nintendo products makes me ill because what Activision does.

I am not touching Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 with a 10 foot pole. Might as well been a digital-only release.

The more I think about it, the more I’m not so sure I want to dump $174 on that mega Castlevania set. I think I might just go for the standard. Would be nice to have, and the book and shadow box are cool, but there are just way too many extra boxes. What the hell am I gonna do with all those? Guess I’ll figure out what I’m going to do this week before it closes.

That's my thought. I'm a huge Castlevania fan, so much that I actually have all of those games in their original forms, so I really can't justify buying a set that has a bunch of miniature replica boxes.

@catsnpizzas @Miadaskate - Honestly, unless it is a HUGE impact for me, I avoid CEs wherever I can. Gives me more money to buy more games.

@Paraka For me, it's moreso about space. I have to really, really like a game to devote space to having a lot of trinkets related to it. Castlevania is, for me, one such series, but this CE isn't super appealing to me.

I’ve slowly come to the exact same conclusion

@Miadaskate I thought about it and in the end the deciding thing was the music track in the Shadowbox. Bloody Tears is my introduction to the Castlevania series. I am not big on huge expensive collections but Castlevania is my absolute favorite franchise ... ever!

A curious problem of trying to play digital, after having played physical.

I encountered this before with Snake Pass, but just ran into the problem with FOX n FORESTS just now after I picked it up 75% off digitally.
The digital version available from the eShop is only running v1.0 and can't update beyond that.
Whereas the physical version I have has v1.1 on the game card.
Since these two versions share the same title ID, and the eShop will not serve a v1.1 download, this prevents me from launching the digital version now that I've played the physical version.

There are other physical releases that avoid this issue by making them a separate title ID from the digital release, such as Mutant Mudds Collection or Crypt of the Necrodancer.

I have to reckon that it's a bureaucratic thing where the platform holder charges a publisher or developer to update their software on their storefront, so anyone who later does a physical release but doesn't update their digital version may run into this situation.

Without warning, my LRG order for Mighty Gunvolt Burst collector's edition + Ruiner arrived today.
I wasn't expecting it because LRG appears to have failed to send me the usual shipping notification email.

If you've ordered these items or not had any LRG shipping notification for a while, I advise that you check your recent orders for any unexpected shipments with tracking numbers.

It also looks like Pikuniku will be shipping from LRG very soon. I will keep an eye out for a shipping notification or update for my order, as I ordered this by itself.

@Paraka
Yeah, it poses a real problem for anyone that might part ways with their physical version, and try to play digitally later. I don't intend to sell my physical copies of these games at this time, but you never know what the future holds.

Razion EX used https://www.ngdevdirect.com/

Wonder what this is suppose to be? I missed out on the initial sale.

EDIT: Sold as used. Condition B. Still original factory sealed and new. All units may have slight flaws like small scratches on the wrap foil or case foil. Dust, paper or fiber particles below the foil etc. Small flaws on the insert. May not be suited for "mint" collectors.

Pass.

Considering that Razion EX is not available digitally right now, and there's a lot of buyers that just want to play the game that should be fine for them.
Circumstances as they are though, still impossible for UK customers to place an order.

I got an update from LRG support regarding the lack of shipping notification.
It is apparently an issue that some other customers have reported whilst they transition over to using DHL as their courier, and they expect to have the issue resolved when they have fully transitioned over.

Again, if you have any outstanding orders with LRG I advise you to check your orders now. You may have items that have shipped without you knowing.

@Belexes I'll have one! No way I'm paying 150 quid to play it! No game is worth that!

Carto and Spinch arrived today.

Swords of Ditto should have been delivered already but hasn’t moved for a week. Hopefully it’ll arrive soon.

Looks like the early SMT V Premium Editions sold through in a heartbeat. Maybe I'll snag it when more retailers open preorders? Anywho, I did manage to snag the Danganronpa Decadence CE. Those lenticular cards, better than steelbook imo.
