Yeah, Amazon listing prces have been wonky recently. The same goes for Cruise'n' Blast. Best Buy and Gamestop, $40. But on Amazon...$50.

@SKTTR

I was being facetious. Sure, plenty of games launch with a sale price. Monster Hunter Stories 2 and Skyward Sword have been discounted down 17% at several retailers. But seeing a game down 50%? Eh, not all that often.

To me it just says that inventory of the game isn't moving.

Word round the campfire is that the long hinted Sydney Hunter physical release is coming soon-ish. Keep an eye on CollectorVision's twitter account. I assume it'll be a small print run like NGDev and VBlank published releases. Sold through CollectorVision's own website.

@Magician @RupeeClock - So I have not seen a confirmation of how Cris Tales works without a download. So I tried it myself, and so far 15 minutes in it plays just fine.

@Paraka
The simple reason for that is Hermes have still failed to deliver my shipment from GAME.
It shipped around Tuesday 20th July and has been stuck at the Hermes depot without update since then.
This was supposed to be next day delivery.

Anyway, if you do download an update for Cris Tales if available, how large is it? It should be possible to discern that in the Switch system settings storage management.

From NV Dev Team:

Good news. Due to continuing strong demand in our physical releases we will reprint both Razion EX (standard/regular) and Gunlord X (standard/regular) in 2022. We plan to do 1000 units.
For Gunlord X it's the 2nd and final reprint.

Hmm, just doing a rundown for a potential import order.

Summer in Mara? Not great.
Tsukihime? English support not confirmed.
Melty Blood? A great 2D fighter mechanically, but with lore I don't care about.

Seems as though a September order won't be necessary.

I've my got an eye on that Tiger Heli collection from M2 in October.

I think I’ll just play the Ori games on my Xbox. I already have both physically for that system, and they look way better / perform better on there.

Summer in Mara is getting a Switch release? Color me interested. From where, @Magician? Perhaps it’ll get a North American release?

@Miadaskate

Summer in Mara is being published physically and digitally by Pikii in Japan.

I assume Nicalis will pick up the western publishing rights.

Thanks buddy! Any word on English support? Hmm. Perhaps I will wait.

@RupeeClock - That's fine, just wanted to pass down the information. Wasn't sure what your status was.

Also, I will update and let you all know.

I managed to snag one of the 5k copies of Where the Water Tastes Like Whine over at LRG.

It's a PM Studios published game, I had to buy a copy on general principle.

So, Huntdown is getting another batch of collectors editions and a standard release.

Well guys, I did it.

I reached an interim 1,000 Switch physical games! Interim meaning I have an intent to maximize my "collection" types, like trilogies and bundle packs. If I do that now, I would be at 997.

However, give it up to No. 1,000: The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles!

EDIT; Also, noticed Graffitti Games is publishing Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion physical.

@Paraka Congrats, you absolute maniac. What are your general thoughts on the collection considering we're only a little over halfway through the Switch's lifecycle? We've got three or four more years of the madness ahead of us. Personally, I've trimmed most of the mediocre shovelware out of the my collection, yet I'll be close to 800 by the end of the month.

I look at my display shelf and I ask myself, "where am I going to store this *%&@ going forward?"

@Magician - The wife and I are actually getting a new house, and the one we placed an offer on, if all goes well, solves a lot of the future issue I may see.

Currently, I have 2 separate areas where I keep the games. One on imports, the other local NTSC. And that has already foreshadowed a huge challenge for me; Space.

Though, my opinion of the collection as a whole is... It is so exhausting trying to get the more "complete" version of the games. I often just want one with the first patches and whatnot patched out and content added on-cart. But so many companies re-re-re-releasing games causes a huge slowdown to collecting the oddities.

Having a lot of older consoles and games don't help the space issue. Especially now when I am gathering plastic recreations of their original boxes and printing SNES manuals.

@Paraka Congratulations. I am absolutely nowhere near that many! Incredible.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.
