    PS4 Skullgirls has been shipped. They're still waiting on the Vita version.

    As Aussie2B stated it sold out quickly, and they found out that a lot of sales was because while there was a limit of one listed, it allowed people to add as many as they wanted while normally it stops them from getting more than one. So they stated that everyone who had an excessive amount of copies were going to be cancelled altogether and anyone who sent a support ticket would be placed on the waiting list.

    You can still purchase the game at $75 without the code, listed at that price to circumvent people from purchasing it. Any remaining copies will be sold on the site sometime in January. Here's the link though. https://limitedrungames.com/collecti...nt=43337253827
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    I'm surprised they didn't price it even higher. Weren't the Oddworld trading cards originally at $100 for anybody who was trying to get them without a code? I kinda feel like they're hoping some people who didn't get on the waiting list will bite at that $75 price point.

    Are the releases from Fangamer comparable to the ones from Limited Run Games? There's something that interests me from Fangamer but I don't really know anything about them, if their releases are limited or not, if the quality is ok, etc.

    Well, they don't have much history in it yet, with only Shovel Knight and Undertale (and with the former, they only acted as the distributor), but the rarity of Shovel Knight was about on par with a LRG release (they made 5000). I don't know if anyone has released numbers for Undertale. Quality-wise, I'd say they're a step above. Shovel Knight was only $25, which is as low as LRG prices go, for a game that's arguably more acclaimed than practically any indie LRG has released, plus it came with a nice 40-some page full-color manual, when most LRG releases either don't have a manual or it's been some little chintzy thing like the manuals with Xeodrifter and Thomas Was Alone. With Undertale, the quality of the LE absolutely blows LRG's CEs out of the water. It's better than most LEs I have period. The standard release is also $25 like Shovel Knight, and it comes with a really neat story booklet that's been made to look like a Little Golden Book (this is also in the LE).

    The first batch of Crawl and 2064: Read Only Memories, both for PS4, have gone up, along with a bunch of 2064: ROM merch.

    Also of interest is a little survey they're doing where you can weigh in on their CEs, rate of releases, and a bunch of other stuff: https://t.co/JIyYuFYgjb

    Sounds like they're pretty good then. I guess the only thing to consider is if they're reliable with packing and shipping but they probably would be. Still very tempting then to buy from them. I'm hoping their PC releases are big boxes but the size doesn't really matter that much.

    Right now I only have the internet through my smart phone so I don't check this site as often as I used to. My replies are getting later somewhat.

    Just when I thought I was safe...yet ANOTHER release...and to make things worse, on BLACK FRIDAY. Great just great. I have enough issues getting the regular releases now (remember, no electricity and extremely limited internet), but offering it that particular day... frigging great. Thanks LRG... 😠

    Yeah, I honestly don't know what LRG is thinking lately. They announce Super GunWorld 2 three days before release, and it's only getting 2000 copies, making it the second lowest PS4 print run from LRG. On top of that, Claire is only getting 2500 copies on each platform, which are print run sizes we haven't seen in over a year. Why are we going backwards here? It's been great seeing many of the recent releases last all weekend.

    Fangamer seemed disorganized in getting Undertale shipped out. It seemed like they got overwhelmed with the volume. Originally, all the standard copies ordered and the first batch of the LEs were to go out in late September, but shipping only begun then and continued for a good month or more. They claimed they'd be shipping out LEs before the standard copies, yet I was seeing people receiving standard copies before my LE had shipped. Ultimately, I waited patiently for like three weeks or some such and finally caved and sent an e-mail. It then got shipped out right after that. It seemed like a squeaky wheel gets the grease kind of situation, and goodness knows how much longer I would've waited had I not sent the e-mail. The packing was adequate. It was first put in cardboard and then in an envelope. I've seen better packaging of LEs (like NISA using thick bubble wrap), but it was good enough to get here unharmed. With Shovel Knight, it was shipped quickly and also showed up in perfect shape.

    Can anyone help me with Super Gunworld 2? Since it's 2 per person, it might be possible. Only want one copy of course. Any help would be great! 😃
