I've been going back and forth on this one too. Not sure how much I'll like the game, but I imagine it'll be an expensive collector's item someday soon.

If you choose to pass on the LRG release, you will probably get a second chance through Best Buy, though that isn't guaranteed. Also, if you choose to wait for Best Buy to sell it, you might want to snatch it up pretty quickly once they go on sale as I imagine lots of collectors will want to get their hands on the alternate cover version as well.

Looks like there's a new FMV game called Five Dates coming out. Sounds very unique...

It got pretty solid reviews, especially for a FMV game. 79% on Metacritic, based on 7 reviews. Like most LRG games, it's already been out in digital form for awhile - it came out in November 2020.

While we're on the LRG subject, their shipping backlogs are starting to get a little annoying. I bought Hotline Miami in August 2020 and it still hasn't even shipped yet. Fortunately I've played the game before and just wanted the physical copy, so I'm not in any real rush. Sucks if you missed out on the sale and bought a "confirmed pre-order" on ebay... by now, the seller can just run away with your money, because the time to contest the sale on ebay or paypal has probably run out.

They should post an estimated time of arrival sometime between "now and YOUR DEATH"

That would just open them up to lawsuits from the families of anyone that passes away in the next... few years? :roll:

Their back-logs for shipping have gotten bad; my preordered SNK soundtracks took forever and a day to ship, though once shipped they arrived in decent time.

They have approx shipping windows at approx. 2-3 months AFTER the Preorders close, with the preorders closing approx 1 month after going live.

That's a LOONG time, and this was the way it was listed pre-Covid...

Just in case you don't know, this is a true limited run, so no pre-order window -- once they're gone, they're gone.

Believe they typically sell these in two batches, one at 10am ET and the other at 6pm ET.
