    Pretty much exactly that. Risk of Rain didn't sell out immediately but did sell out in a few days, and that's fine. It's nice that people who wanted it got a decent order window, and that LRG...

    Not Runner 2 but rather other games that were available at the booth in good-sized piles. There were a bunch of games available to just walk up and purchase, some of which (I think?) were ones sold...

    Sensible practice, too. I've been waiting for a backlash on selling that stock at places like PAX East, but so far either nobody's noticed or maybe, if we're really lucky, nobody cares.

    Wow! at the PS4 numbering lately.

    24 Runner 2
    26 Pang Adventures
    28 Mitsurugi
    29 Astebreed
    34 Flint Hook

    25 and 27 are probably DariusBurst and Nova-111, but 30-33?

    Not much of a rival, honestly. You probably could have cleared 5K Strafe on PS4 in a day, rather than 2000 pre-order in however long it's taking them.

    Strafe is legitimately excellent. The art style is a lot of fun in motion and the 90s-style shooting feels great. It's randomly-generated, sure, but the levels are built built from hand-designed...

    I'd hate to try to estimate the print run of DariusBurst. I'm thinking 7,500 but at $60 that's a tough one, and if the game had been able to be released at $25-$30 it might have been able to do...

    Nah, good plan. Even if all you do is flip the game a few days after the standard release, when everyone realizes they missed the exclusive cover, you'll come out ahead. At the moment I'm thinking...

    I'm just glad it's not a PS4 version. I've gotten all the LRG games so far and, while I know the streak will break, I wouldn't mind seeing it go on for a while longer.

    What game did LRG release that Signature is re-publishing? Aragami, Super Meat Boy, and Slain are all first time around from this company. Is there a fourth I haven't seen?
