    Yes, but they are still a few weeks away from public release. I believe they have started sending out review cases to various outlets.

    Well, that was nice and easy. I was busy during the listing of the first batch and for several hours later, so I got on LRG's site near 6pm Eastern to prepare for the second batch, only to see that there was still plenty of Phantom Breaker CEs in stock. So I grabbed one of those without even waiting. Though it just goes to show that if they're struggling to move this CE when there's so few even (fewer than other CEs like Nurse Love Addiction and 2064 that sold out super fast), then this game really didn't warrant a CE, even if the developer/publisher has done more notable stuff. Steins;Gate this is not. But I feel like maybe LRG is trying to compensate for the dirt cheap digital price point a little by including more with the CE than usual. Shock and awe, we actually get a soundtrack AND an art book this time.

    Anyway, it's just another +1 to my unfulfilled LRG backlog. It feels like forever since I've actually received anything from them. They keep selling and selling and yet seemingly shipping nothing. I think I'm up to six unfulfilled orders now?

    There's actually a thread on LRG about how many unfulfilled orders people have it's apparently got so ridiculous. I don't buy much so I only have two unfulfilled orders, but I've purchased one months ago. Iron Crypticle and Cosmic Star Heroine(PS4 CE, PS4, and Vita.) I can understand CSH since they need to create the Sega CD cases for the CE, but Iron Crypticle? The game was apparently being manufactured for print at the time of sale yet two months late and no copy.

    This is another reason to bash LRG for their higher priced games compared to other publishers. Regardless what the cost is through other publishers, atleast if I order the game I get the damn game, I can get it in two days if I want, I don't have to wait God knows how long, I don't have to worry if I'll actually get the game, I don't have to worry if I'll be able to get a replacement if the condition is like I received Dragon Fantasy in way back when. I never sent it back to get a replacement because I had to pay costs of return shipping to LRG all because of their paper thin packaging they were using back then which forced me to get a box any time I have fewer than two games. Best Buy, Amazon, etc, they'd send me a pre postage box to return the game if there's any issues, nope, not LRG. Later on when LRG was providing replacement inserts, I decided to message their help desk. I explained everything and was told that if I wanted an insert I'd have to have enough coupons to get it. I mean wtf? Damaged item way back when they should give me the insert for free. They were going to replace it before, why the hell not just give the insert for free along with one of my orders.

    I never bothered to get my PS4 Saturday Morning RPG replaced, since that they did want me to return at my own cost, but when my Mecho Tales slipcover arrived damaged, they sent me another at no charge with my replacement Steamworld copies, which were also replaced at no charge after the original package got lost in the mail. They also added the corrected Dear Esther insert to one of my other orders at no charge.

    I assume the backlog is due to all the publishers at this time of year getting their big holiday releases manufactured. LRG's print runs are probably pretty low priority to Sony. It's not like I'm in any hot hurry to receive my games nor am I worried that they won't come eventually, but I don't see why they can't just wait until they have games on hand before listing them for sale like they did early on (with the games that have finite print runs that is; of course the open preorders are a different matter). Or better yet, I wish they'd get a competent system that would allow for combining orders. After all this waiting, it'd be a nice gesture if they could at least combine all the unfulfilled orders and issue a partial refund on shipping costs. I'm sure it would save them a ton of man hours to significantly reduce the number of individual packages they have to mail out too. But from what they've said in the past, their system is supposedly so limited that even something seemingly as simple as combining orders would be a huge pain for them.

    It's funny you guys mentioned the unfilled orders. I recently looking at my unfulfilled orders and I have 6 orders dating back to April. I've noticed it takes longer for LRG to sell out of certain titles these days and it makes me wonder if it has something to do with people already having $400-$500 tied up in game orders with nothing to show for it. Some people only have so much of a budget for games, so many people may feel like they could spend money on a game and play it that same day, or spend it and have to wait for a while till they play something. I feel like I'd be more apt to buy a title I'm only slightly interested in if I knew I wasn't going to have to wait so long for it to get to me.

    West of Loathing for Switch was put up for sale today. Check back at 6pm Eastern if you missed the CE.
