    When they ship. :)

    There should be a $5 discount if you buy both games together. If it doesn't work for you, email PA & they'll apply the discount.

    Both copies secured! Anyone notice that Play Asia disabled the ability to us a coupon code with either game, yet offered $5 off the order if you bought both? Clever strategy to get the customers to purchase each one.

    It really still baffles me to this day, Play Asia releases have been extremely good imo since they started with CE editions, cheaper , better quality boxes just the right size and free shipping yet they still don't sell out ! Even after a day , vita collector's are strange sometimes! Just saying :)

    I wonder the same thing at times, we sure are a unique bunch arent we!
    I do feel they offer a lot more for the $ than most others most definitely.

    Sadly I speculate it comes down to the common affliction of O.C.D. LRG individually numbers their releases, which causes folks with strong O.C.D. to loose self control and have to buy everything in the set even if it makes them upset spending their money on so many games. I also think LRG games sell better then PA's because again folks with O.C.D. can convince themselves that they still have a complete set of something, even if they are just sticking to region 1 releases. (not saying they are wrong, but I believe that's how they think) It would probably be more difficult for someone in Hong Kong to stick to just their own territory of releases since they have way fewer exclusives than here in the U.S., hence LRG always selling better. That's my theory at least.

    Yep, I think the region plays a huge role. Same reason most EU limiteds don't sell amazingly fast either (except for Strictly Limited, I think?).

    1082398855918948353 is not a valid tweet id

    Eastasiasoft is publishing this Ratalaika-ported game also on the Vita. I wonder if we're going to get a physical release with PA!

    The game seems to be a bit of a Megaman-like, according to the gameplay video here (which was linked in the Twitter discussion). It seems it's a video of the entire game being beaten in a bit more than an hour, so I'm unsure whether a physical is really warranted, but at the same time, going by the first few minutes, I can already see it'll take me ages longer to do any of that. Mario being completed in a few minutes nowadays also doesn't mean it wasn't worth a full price.

    Can't seem to find it, personally...

    Is it the 'We will launch various versions in Japan/Asia region' one? Does various include physical per se?

    I assume being a fellow retro connoisseur you're looking forward to it like me? I've not seen any footage, only pictures, so I hope it's actually good!

    According to reviews the PC release is/was riddled with bugs so I'm a little unsure about it. Still wracking my head over whether or not to get this.

    Got my copy of Ghoul Boy! With Vita collecting becoming more and more of a thing these days I didn't want to take any chances on missing it, so I set my alarm today.

    Don't forget to use the coupon coded "CENSORED" for $3 off. :)

    Don't feel to bad about it Vita VR Ps4, I missed out on it due to limited finances. Was shocking to see a EAS game sell out in under four hours. So use to them taking days, weeks, even months to sell out.

    Same here. Would have gotten it, had I had more money. But the coming time is packed with Vita releases and I got some other priorities for the coming while.

    I Am the Hero also sold out fairly quickly though, iirc

    I ended up passing on Ghoul Boy. Looking at the gameplay, I wasn't convinced I wanted it, surprised it sold out so quick to be honest. Well, I also passed on it because KOF '97 is this week, and I really, REALLY want that one.

    Anyone got Sword and Fairy 6? I thought it wasn’t to sell out quick and lo and behold, missed the chance on getting one. Let’s see if they do a regular version or will have to get one from a scalper.
