I jumped on Evoland yesterday. I've always been interested in checking out those games so I couldn't pass that one up.

A public service announcement, the Trine Series 1-3 set that is exclusive to Gamestop appears to be the ONLY way to get those games physical, on the Switch at least (not sure about other platforms). I found out the hard way today that the Ultimate Collection for the Switch only has Trine 4 on the cart, there is a packed-in code that you redeem for the other 3 games. :(

became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the
desire to be very grown up.” ― C.S. Lewis

I'm not seeing the SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER Definitive Edition in normal online retailers, not even GAME! The only place I am seeing it is on Square-Enix's website:
https://store.eu.square-enix-games.com/en_GB/product/593479/shadow-of-the-tomb-raider-definitive-edition-ps4

I'm curious to know if it will have all  the DLC on Disc or not...

I've Been informed it' listed at most retailers in the USA.

I damn well better be able to square off against a Chupacabra in that game!  :P


LRG released Tokyo Chronos this morning. I just happened to be on the site looking at something else and saw it on a refresh. At least they were nice enough to list this Friday's release today (I'm sure they'll find a way to add more stuff before then). On that note, I like how Jumanji popped up outta nowhere yesterday.  :P

Yeah, LRG is hot garbage lately.  Tokyo Chronos can be had from Amazon JP (with english supprt) for around $40.

Yeah, my buddy told me about that yesterday.

I'm not going to go with that deluxe version due to space. I'll just be happy with a standard physical version.

I update the OP very frequently, but not the subsequent stuff.  The google calendar is the best place for release info.

Steamworld Quest (NS) from Super Rare Games launches today.

Distraint Collection (NS) from EastAsiaSoft launches today.

LRG has some random Kemco game and Polybius (PS4) tomorrow.

Matter of fact, I'm gonna start the process of converting the OP into an immediate information section with a link to a Google Sheet that has more detailed historical information.

Well, it used to be that LRG offered die hard physical collectors a chance at games that otherwise would never see a brick and mortar store. However, along the way they got that mission statement crossed up with the (un?)intended consequence of FOMO and scalpers causing huge spikes of their products on the secondary market.

Then they started  believing their own press and thinking people would buy just about any turd they put in a box, coupled with them determined to stomp the market into oblivion by selling multiple products per week nearly every week this year.

Thank you for the answer! The ps4 started out as great collecting system because Europe got a lot of exclusives but now with all these limited offerings it will be impossible to complete the collection ever!

Yeah I agree, if you’re a completionist collector these limited releases are a total nightmare. Just keeping track of all of them is already tedious. However if you’re a collector that only buys selective titles based on preference then LRG provides options to those collectors to own and collect a physical version.

I only buy and collect games that I play or see myself playing, so I pick up a handful of LRG titles throughout the year. So for a collector like myself, the appeal is there for me to own a physical version over digital for the titles I am interested in.
