    That just raises another confusing matter since I remember LRG saying they weren't interested in releasing games that already had an Asian English physical release. With games like Ys Origin and Wonder Boy, they said they signed for them before they knew they'd also get an English physical release elsewhere, but if Caladrius Blaze has been available for a long time, I wonder why they decided to pick it up.

    Almost slipped my mind since I'm not buying (and sorry for not posting a reminder about Shadow Warrior 2), but Caladrius Blaze and The Flame in the Flood just had their first batches put up for sale. Good luck to those buying.

    I was partially interested in Caladrius Blaze, but it slipped my mind when it went on sale. I think I'm just going to pass on these releases since I just picked up Ys VIII and also have the new Metroid I want to pick up as well.

    Although I already have the Korean (English) version of Caladrius Blaze, I like the idea of a color manual and art booklet so I picked up the LRG release at 10am. First batch sold out in ~4 minutes I think.
    It was tempting to buy two copies since shoot'em-ups always seem to appreciate in value quite well. But really the extra $30 is better in my pocket than spent today in hopes of making a handful of dollars months from now.

    I never bought,pa release of caladrius blaze so i went ahead with the LRG one instead.I just put a order in for the first batch and it wasn't a problem at all.I'm surprise it did sell out since shooters are a niche for the u.s market.

    The PAX variant of the PS4 version of Ys Origin will go up sometime this month. That should be it for September. Windjammers is planned for October, but I'm not sure if anything else has been narrowed down to next month. I'm hoping we'll finally see Rabi-Ribi soon, considering it already came out in Europe.

    Salt and Sanctuary may still be October although the ESRB thing really threw everything off. I think they have only had two games approved since the new process went into place so October may end up being another light month.

    Thanks for the information guys. Another hurricane looms and it may be weeks before I can try for another release. At least I have some time. Thanks everyone!

    Does anyone know what the status of the physical version of Sundered is?
    I can't find any updated info about it online.

    It's gonna be a while. The developer took from mid-August through the second week of September as a vacation and this is what they said in late July before they left -

    "As stated elsewhere, the physical collector's edition will await the release of all DLC for the project before being finalized, so that the physical edition can be "definitive". So no specific date for the moment - stay tuned!".

    Ah cool. Thanks.
    I almost forgot I backed it, then the other week I was like "wait, wasn't there that PS4 game?... "

    Absolute Drift, yet another game that they're expecting people to pay their bs pricing on on an already bs priced game. More like absolute sh*t. I'm exaggerating as clearly a game that people can enjoy, but for $25? Even the PSN price of $12 is pretty damn steep for a game that's budget as hell for an already budget genre. Mantis Burn is $15 for the same kind of game that actually has some effort put into it. I wouldn't purchase Mantis Burn, but I also wouldn't complain about LRG releasing more bottom of the barrel trash if they got that instead.

    Everybody already knows at this point that LRG has a $25 minimum, as anything else would produce profits so small as to not be worthwhile. It's not the 90s anymore, when budget PS1 games could have an MSRP of $10 or $15. Pretty much any physical console or handheld release has a $20+ MSRP these days, no matter how low-budget the game is, because manufacturing costs don't magically get lessened just because the game is crappy or low-budget.

    I'm not buying Absolute Drift. Also see no reason to complain about it. I'm glad for the people who are happy to have the opportunity to buy it physically. I'm also glad to have a little bit of a break from LRG spending. I'm excited to buy Windjammers on Vita next month, and that's good enough for me for now.

    For those who want to fight over the remaining 700 or so PAX variant copies of Ys Origin for PS4, they'll be up this Monday, October 2nd, at noon Eastern time.

    Apparently they had plans to do a Vita variant too, but the ESRB business killed it (killed the other variant they were planning to do for Night Trap too). So there's one positive out of the whole ESRB mess, haha.

    For anyone who missed Broken Age, LRG passed their leftovers along to Fangamer: https://www.fangamer.com/products/br...s4-and-ps-vita

    Now for me to go back to twiddling my thumbs until Fangamer finally ships my Undertale CE, even though I made the cut for September shipment and they're supposedly sending the CEs out before the standard copies.

    I bought a standard copy of Undertale for the first run and I haven't heard anything other than an e-mail saying it's going to ship in September but may run until October. If I hear anything else, I'll post it here. I also bought a collector's edition that isn't supposed to ship until December, since I missed the first wave.

    I said I'd post about my undertale pre-order (although not LRG related). I just got my shipping confirmation e-mailed to me yesterday.

    Still nothing about my Undertale. Looking at their Twitter account the last couple days, it looks like Fangamer has been focusing on the PS4 CEs. At least I finally got a tracking number from LRG about my Ys Origin and Asdivine Hearts, but they've been in "pre-shipment" since the 9th. I hope LRG keeps their word for getting everything literally shipped by this weekend. I'm getting kinda annoyed with these "shipping confirmations" that aren't actual confirmation of shipping. Just because you've printed out a label and slapped it on a box doesn't mean anything if you're just gonna leave the box sitting in your warehouse for a week before actually handing it off to USPS or UPS or whatever.

    Anyway, the first batch of Absolute Drift: Zen Edition and Chariot will be on sale in roughly 15 minutes. Windjammers has been delayed to November, so this may be it for October.

    Hopefully I have a job, internet, AND electricity for when the next batch is available.
