Pinned topic.

On topic, do all Super Rare games come "sealed" in a plastic sleeve and a sticker like this?

I don't know if the older releases did, but I believe going forward, yes, they should all be like that.

Do you know if the game case inside is also sealed like all regular retail Switch games are?

I got the white GALF cart.  They have a wishlist you can join to maybe get one.

Hope this is accurate because nothing there interests me (with the possible exception of the 2 unknowns, of course). October is a packed month as it is. 

I'm anxious for Play-Asia to announce their games for this month.
"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed
if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I
became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the
desire to be very grown up.” ― C.S. Lewis

A lot of folks are speculating that the 8-bit game is Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, but I'm hesitant to believe that given that a Switch version would sell like hotcakes.  I made a speculation about what the title is, but even I don't believe my guess because it's too on the nose, I honestly expect it to be some random shitty pixel game.

The Huge game is supposedly outlandishly crazy that they are doing the release, like it's supposed to blow people's minds that they managed to sign it.  Some folks were speculating Hellblade or Mummy Demastered... but who knows, time will tell.

Hm, according to their calendar...
10/26: TBA 2 Game Collection (Switch)... I didn't realize Outlast had a Trinity collection, so I assumed it'd be that?

They've also listed a "TBA (PS4/Vita)" for that date to be sold in batches....

Switch has Outlast: Bundle of Terror and Outlast 2.  It'll be 1 cartridge, but it'll create 2 separate icons on your switch.  No launcher.

So yeah, Essentially Outlast Trinity... which is a shame that they are wasting a Switch release on something that already has a retail presence for PS4/X1

Just a question about what has been the consistent practice (if there has been one) for "release dates" on items that have limited releases or pre-orders. When the actual production/shipping date is unknown, have we just been using the date of first sale as the "release date"?

Is the focus here console games or do PC ones count too? There's a small publisher called Screen 7 http://www.screen7.co.uk/#!/home, who specialize in adventure games, they have an online shop with limited physical editions of some of their games http://www.screen7.co.uk/treasure/, frankly they're likely to be much smaller runs than most of these 'limited run' games for PS4 etc.

The only problem is they only ship to North America at the minute (strange, for a UK company), but I've took delivery of the 5-disc version of The Cat Lady today by using a third party to repackage and ship to me (UK). I was very pleased to receive it though :D The Cat Lady looks like a fantastic horror game.
