We will see.
They charged $20 more for the soundtrack + stickers in case of Astro Aqua Kitty, so I assume it's multiple CDs.
If only Limited Run would do a proper job and list details like Strictly Limited does, sigh.

EDIT: Scratch that, I'm stupid. They only charge $15 for this soundtrack, so seems to be 1 disc, but $15 is a fair price. It's what they always charge. To my knowledge there has never been a soundtrack release for this.

I never played any of these games growing up (I grew up with The Learning Company, Edmark, and MECC games, along with the UK-based magazine + floppy disk series PC Genius). But I'll keep an eye out for my nephew/niece.
They use the same engine as classic LucasArts adventure games like Indiana Jones, Day of the Tentacle or Sam'n Max.
(Where are these on Switch, Disney?)

What's sad is that there were tons more games, but those weren't ported (yet?) to Switch, so not the fault of this collection.

https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/H...tainment/Games
There were 8 Freddy Fish games.
7 Pajama Sam games.
11 Putt-Putt games.
and 5 Spy Fox games.
(only counting SCUMM ones)

For other games I'm glad that Japan releases some of them on just one cart.

It's one thing when you do something like Strictly Limited with their Wonder Boy collection, which has actually fantastic value. But this here is pure rip off. To be fair Strictly Limited pulled something like this with their Turrican collection, which was also split into two.

Atari is also not some poor indie label. This should not only be on one cart, but it should be a regular release.
Yeah, I was interested in them until I saw the price. 70 bucks for the set is insane.

I used to buy so much from LRG, but I've really gotten sour to them by their increasing need for greed and incredible run times. Over a year for some stuff is starting to get a bit much. I used order a few titles a month, yet now, the last game I purchased from them was Contra Collection.

It's 60 bucks for just the cart, and 75 bucks for the cart + soundtrack.

The 6 games included are not mini-games but full-size games.
I don't have a problem with 60 bucks. And the games are 15 bucks EACH digitally. On sale 10 bucks.
In other cases they split trilogies up into 3 releases, which were then 3x 35 = 105 bucks. Now that's insane.

I'm talking about the Atari set, sorry for the mixup.

Oh, yeah that's a major rip off. Agreed
Was my fault. I was busy buying Fox'n Forests, finally found it for a good price (physically, OOP, Strictly Limited).

Like they weren't taking the piss enough with their stingy 2-in-1 releases.

And I wish they'd hurry up with the retro A Boy and His Blob collection as I'd want to play that before the Wii port.

At the very least it should be the same price or slightly higher than the digital version (an extra $5 at most). It's $19.99 digitally normally. A 100% physical tax when you include shipping is pure greed. When Ducktales, Shovel Knight, Minecraft or Star wars two pack reached brick-and-mortar stores the price was the same.

Anyone else think LRG is in a bit of a glut of late? There hasn't been a lot of especially appealing Switch titles for me in many months. The only recent titles I've ordered are NeoGeo Pocket Collection Vol 2, Star Wars: KOTOR, and Radiant Silvergun.

I'm still holding out for A Boy and His Blob: Retro Collection, which I would rather play before the port of the Wii game (which LRG had previously taken pre-orders for).

I'm also hoping for a standalone release of the DOOM Eternal expansion missions. I strongly suspect that LRG's release of the base game will be a tailor-made build on a 16GB cart, while Bethesda will probably also produce a standalone build of the expansions that will similarly be housed in a 16GB cart.

Big blow out event happening at LRG today started at Noon EST. Limited quantities of leftover items for items previously sold out. If you feel lucky, you can grab blind boxes.

https://limitedrungames.com/

The event lasts 24 hours, but a lot of the most sought after, limited items are already gone. I was able to snag a few Switch games I wanted, but previously missed out on.

Star Wars Episode I: Racer
Shantae
Shantae: Risky's Revenge

A little disappointed I had Shantae and the Seven Sirens and Grandia HD Collection in my cart, but they were sold out before my number in line was called.

I really had it with LRG.

First of all they lock the whole website down for hours, which is fine if I could at least login in advance. I can't. And of course login wastes time with a captcha on top.

I had 3 items in my cart.
The Missing CE
Forgotton Anne CE
and Fata Morgana CE.

Now I get put in a queue for 5 minutes, and after that Fata Morgana is sold out.

Okay, fine.try to checkout.

What happens?
Your address is longer than 50 characters.
NO, IT ****ING ISN'T
Your address is longer than 50 characters.
Try another address
Your address is longer than 50 characters.

Remove the Missing from the cart.
Maybe the overall dimensions are too large?
SOMEHOW it's fine now and I can finally checkout. With massive postages costs, but whatever.

Now I think what's going on, place a second order with Atooi CE for 3DS as well as 3 Blind boxes. That goes through as well.

I'm going WTF.

Now I finally try to order "The Missing" and that fails.
Your address is longer than 50 characters.
And fails.
Your address is longer than 50 characters.
And fails.

I write to the support that I'm getting silly error messages that make no sense and that they should fix it.

Out of curiosity I try again after another 10 minutes and The Missing CE was still listed as available.

NOW SOMEHOW IT FINDS POSTAGE, which was even pretty cheap $11.
But then BLAMO sold out.

**** THEM, REALLY **** THEM. What the **** is wrong with these idiots, how hard is it to make ordering work? Why not have actual proper error messages instead of complaining about things that aren't true. And why the **** not lock these items to the customer WHEN YOU ALREADY GOT A STUPID QUEUE GOING ON.

So now I'm paying around $46 postage, because of these hacks, and I wasn't able to get 2 Collector's Editions, which I wanted to get. And at least 1 of them is entirely their fault.

EDIT: Bonus - just got a reply from support. "we are so sorry, but we fixed it now". Yeah, I know. Your message was 15-20 minutes too late. WHAT THE ****. They fix it because of my email and can't contact me right immediately or even right before fixing it, so that I can get my order in? Nope. Just fix it and send a reply 5 or 10 minutes later. That'll do.

Grabbed a few more.

PixelJunk Eden 2
One Switch Blind Box (Regular Edition)
Mega Man: The Wily Wars (Genesis)

Obviously, the last one isn't for the Switch, but the edition looked amazing and I always loved Mega Man.

Yeah, the first half hour was a sh*t show. I literally missed out on Grandia HD because of their stupid checkout issues.

Really wanted the shock box Metal Slug Collection on PS4. Had it and Infernax in my cart and had the shipping address issue. By the time it resolved, no more Metal Slug. Got some other stuff but wasn’t happy. Also didn’t like how the cart kept bugging out so I had to make three orders and pay for shipping three times because I couldn’t put it all in one. They’re getting on my last nerve.

Very nice, Return to Monkey Island is the first newly announced LRG game in awhile I'm interested in. Solid looking collector's edition, but not something I can justify $90 for. Probably getting the regular edition.
