    I was tempted on getting a blindbox, just for Breach and Clear (only Vita I'm missing), but decided against it. Don't need anymore repeated copies. Also, since when is Breach and Clear "uncommon"? Other titles are rarer?

    In this case, they found a box of 30 copies of Breach and Clear. so they were uncommon compared to other less frequently included games in the blind boxes. Also, the Breach and Clear copies they found were Sony promos, so they have the UPC punched.

    Skipped Mecho Tales, but I did pick up two games that I missed: Dear Esther and NightTrap.

    Today LRG is selling Rock Boshers DX for both PS4 and Vita (plus bundles with a CD soundtrack) and Yesterday Origins for PS4.

    I just grabbed a Vita copy of Rock Boshers. It's nice to see another return to the old way of doing things. Just the usual 25 bucks, no cover variant stupidity, and a soundtrack available on CD rather than vinyl and not as a part of an overpriced CE (though it would've been nice to see them sold by themselves, not solely within a bundle). And I have some confidence that Rock Boshers will be fun, which I don't have in Mecho Tales. Though I'm still bitter that I have to pay full, separate shipping for both.

    In other news, I think that god awful UPS Mail Innovations, which makes packages take twice as long to travel the relatively short distance between me and LRG, may have lost my copies of SteamWorld. For days now, the tracking on UPS's end has been saying that they handed the package off to USPS, but when I check the tracking number on USPS's end, it says that they're still waiting to receive the package. So lol, good job, guys. I guess I'll wait a few more days to see if it randomly shows up before I start the hassle of contacting LRG support.

    Rock Boshers looks good but it doesn't appeal to me enough to spend $25 on it.

    Happens to me all the time. It's worse for PR...it can take over a month. It is really a horrid service.

    I also picked up Rock Boshers DX on Vita. I thought of getting it on PS4 but I think it's better suited as a Vita title.

    Anything coming out next Friday the 12th?

    Originally there was stuff scheduled for every Friday in January, but they've bumped some to February. So I think there's nothing next Friday. Not sure about the 19th. The 26th will have Sky Force Anniversary.

    Tomorrow is the day for The Bit.Trip (PS4 & Vita) and Screencheat (PS4). I think this'll be the first time since LRG came into existence that I'll pass on one of their new Vita releases. Not because I don't want The Bit.Trip but because of this line in their email: "A special convention exclusive variant will be available for each platform later this year at PAX East." Since I decided to stop supporting all the cover variant nonsense and just buy one version of each Vita game, I'm planning to wait and take a shot at getting that rarer variant, which I assume would have the same price. With any luck, they'll sell that on the same day as something else and spare me from having to pay shipping for this game alone. I already feel like they screwed us on shipping earlier this month, and I don't want to pay shipping two times for the 19th and 26th releases that are only one week apart either. The line about the PAX East variant sounds as if they're ONLY selling it at PAX East, but I assume that's just poor wording on their part. Every other convention variant has later been sold on the site. Worst case scenario, if I fail to get the PAX East variant, I'll pick up The Bit.Trip on eBay. Between The Bit.Trip already having a regular retail physical release on multiple platforms and LRG's Runner 2 often selling for even less on eBay than it did originally, I feel like this one won't have much value on the secondhand market and can safely be put off for a later purchase.

    Anyway, I feel like everything with LRG lately has been adding insult to injury. My SteamWorld copies are very obviously lost in the mail, but LRG refuses to do anything about it until it's been 30 days since the last shipping update, so I'm stuck waiting until the end of this month. I was already annoyed about not being able to combine Mecho Tales and Rock Boshers, and then they're shipped one single day apart and arrive on the SAME DAY. So stupid. It's as if LRG wants to create more work for themselves and waste people's money. And on top that, I actually bought that dumb cash-grab "developer's edition" of Mecho Tales, and the one stinkin' thing that's actually different about it from the standard edition, the slipcover, shows up all torn up at the front top right corner. There is no way in hell I'm wasting even more money on Mecho Tales to return the whole thing for a replacement, so I guess I'll see if they can send me just a replacement slipcover or a partial refund. *sighs*

    Wait, you actually purchased the "rip-off" copy of Mecho!? 🤣🙃

    I have a package of LRG well over a month in transit. I really despise UPS Innovations. Yet they continue to use them.

    And today is BitTrip and some other crap. I will pass...possibly just get the Vita version with my friends help. I rather concentrate on next week for that shooter game. I just hope I get electricty by then.

    I will be skipping today's releases as well. Screen Cheat isn't something I'm interested in, and I will be at Pax East, so I can just hold out for that copy if I decide to get it while I'm there (and hopefully pick up some other good stuff from them). I do like to watch and see how quickly games sell out, even if I am not purchasing. I saw LRG at PAX East last year and spent a good amount of cash at their booth. I'm not sure what they'll end up having this year that I don't already have, but last year I hadn't been buying any of their releases so it was all new games to me.

    I personally can't wait for the blind boxes to come in. I bought 5 of them, and I think it'll be fun just seeing what games I get. If I end up with ones I already have, I can just EBay them or leave them sealed and on the shelf because I open and play most of the games I get from them.

    Runner is alright actually so I purchased The Bit Trip on 3DS awhile ago. I'm thinking of getting it on PS4 but I can guarantee I won't ever play it, so might just skip it. If I do play it again, it'll only be the 3DS version since by design it's pretty much perfect for that system.

    Yeah, I like seeing how their stuff sells even when not buying too. I wish everything would last for at least days, but it is interesting to see what sells faster than others. Like I never would've expected Night Trap to have such demand and sell so quickly.

    To correct myself, the slipcover isn't the only thing different about the Mecho Tales developer edition. I forgot that the cover in the case is different from the regular release too. But I don't see a cover variant as something deserving a higher price tag, even if it is rarer, so the slipcover is the only "extra" for that additional 10 bucks (unless you want to count an extra trading card, which I don't). As dumb as it sounds, the extra slipcover was my main motivation in getting the developer edition, but I'm not even gonna attempt to justify it. I will fully say I'm a sucker for buying it, and I thought it was a rip-off cash grab from the get-go. But now I all the more wish I just got the standard edition when the dumb slipcover shows up damaged. I couldn't care less about the whole angle of "supporting the developer in creating their art" when it's a shady developer cranking out games like shovelware. I'd like to open my copy of Mecho Tales and see if the game is as bad as many claim it is, but until I come to some resolution with my support ticket, I'll refrain. I did at least open and try out my Rock Boshers DX, and it was pretty fun.

    Managed to pick up The Bit Trip for Vita.

    Yeah, you can tell I love the Vita. 😍

    Well, technically I still owe my friend, but at least I was able to get one.
