    Did they ever say anything about the "Genesis Case" given with the Limited Edition having a reversible cover? At least judging by the fact it's pictured alongside the Classic edition I'm assuming it's in scale with the originals.

    (Cos I'm sure as hell not putting a "Genesis" branded case on the Shelf of Rage once that's up :V)

    It's gotta be at least a to scale MD case, which I assume the metal cart fits into. Whether or not it has the Euro Mega Drive cover on the reverse, I can't ever remember them mentioning it on Twitter.

    Still grates on me they didn't offer a BKIV cover for the clamshell when they did for the actual Blu Ray cover.

    I know I'm a niche market though. My fault for being a grey import guy through the 90s.

    Searched around on Twitter for a bit and they only ever mentioned the Classic Edition it seems. Hopefully they'll have done a Euro MD or BKIV version of it. Guess I'll just have to wait and find out....

    The balance patch is dropping this month too. I haven't done a solo playthrough in months now so we'll see how that goes.

    The clamshell case from LRG is way too big. Happy with the sturdy outer box my JP region BKIV came in. Very close to the size of the MD clamshell cases.

    My preoder LRG copy finally came in last week. The size of the clamshell I can excuse, seeing as how it's holding the goodies and all. However, the plastic covering just feels...wrong. Compare this with the clamshell case the physical copy of Aladdin and Lion king came in. That one didn't just look like a Genesis case; it WAS a Genesis case. It could hold an actual cartridge and everything. The tiny manual inside the standard Switch case is cute as a button, though.

    As for the game itself, well I've almost beaten it, and it's a friggin' masterpiece. Right up there with SOR 2 as far as I'm concerned, if not better in some ways, such as being a little faster and snappier. Combos, attacking to recover health lost from performing special attacks and especially juggling enemies are such fun additions to the formula. I even played SOR2 for a few minutes afterward and found myself missing the juggling in particular. Even the default new control scheme works fine for me, to the point where I found no reason to switch to a classic layout, and accidentally throwing your weapon when picking up an item stopped being a problem for me when I learned to let go of the directional button.

    My only two real complaints are one, having your combo broken is the worst thing in existence (;_; ), and two, enemies seem to be able to launch you pretty ridiculous distances, which was a particular annoyance when fighting DJ K Washi (It doesn't help that I was playing as Floyd)

  9. I went in search of a Blue Sega Mega Drive Cover and Retro Gamer Boy on Youtube very kindly made me a version that suits the Limited Run Games Big Box.

    Here it is alongside it's 3 brothers.

    I really wish there was a clamshell edition for JP region BKIV, but the "retro box" of the Switch version will have to do for now.

    Finally got around to buying/playing this. On the one hand, I'm really enjoying it. On the other, holy fucking shit do I suck at it.
