    They have a Kickstarter going to get the album pressed, if you weren’t already aware!

    I have no problem paying the asking price for a record I want.  I have a problem paying $16.50 shipping domestically for 4 records.  Charge me $22 for a record and then a reasonable shipping cost, cool.  Charge more than double what it costs to ship.  Nope.  I'm taking away your allowance and putting you in time out for being complacent with dumb shipping fees.

    If they have a significant history of shipping out damaged items? Sure.
    Maybe reread your response to that person. It came off as unnecessarily combative and self-pitying. Kind of turdish.
    Of course no one should be shipping out damaged records, that’s a given. I’ve received records that seem like they were packed damaged and I typically contact the seller to let them know and get a replacement. I may even have boo-hooed about it a little bit on here, but I can’t imagine essentially telling someone that their experience doesn’t matter because it is different from mine.
     
    Anywho, I’m not looking to get into a protracted argument or discussion about this, so I’m done at this point. Feel free to express your opinion, but if you out of hand dismiss another person’s experience, expect to get called a turd.

    I feel you, but it's odd that Target and UO both got an exclusive colorway but retail got the same as the pre-order exclusive haha. Oh well

    Yep, echoing the sentiment - really cool remake. Definitely glad they priced it at $40, but loving all the little new things and attention to detail. Looks like VV had fun making this, which is great because I'm having fun playing it.
     
    Guess I'm not surprised most people on Reddit are blitzing it and just 100%ing the game as fast as possible. To me, this is golden-era gaming that's just perfect for picking up whenever other modern shit requires way too much attention/energy. So good.

    Yeah I played for 2 hours last night and only competed 2.5 levels because I was just free skating for most of it and enjoying the soundtrack.

    None of the conversation was about anything being "too expensive". If anything -- it was wanting to embrace the "absolute privilege" of media mail by being accurately quoted $7 shipping instead of $20+. Sorry you live in a different country with expensive shipping. I buy records from the UK more often than from the US, so I feel your pain in that regard.
     
    If anything, the point was about cognitive dissonance:
    If I'm buying 4 records, and my total cost is $125 dollars - it makes more sense to me for it to be priced:
    Record 1: $30
    Record 2: $30
    Record 3: $30
    Record 4: $30
    Shipping: $5
     
    Instead of:
    Record 1: $25
    Record 2: $25
    Record 3: $25
    Record 4: $25
    Shipping: $25
     
    That's all anyone was ever saying.

    "siphoning extra profit from consumers via misquoting shipping" is the best thing i have read on this board. y'all bitch about everything. it comes down to $25/$26ppd for a 2xlp. i am sorry you dont agree with how they got there. better boycott them and send them a message. you will not be siphoned!

    Lol this logic is so flawed it's ridiculous. Siphoning extra profit from consumers via misquoting shipping is ridiculous. They should just be honest and price the records at $25 which is STILL BETTER than most other places, and then quote accurate shipping and everyone is thrilled.
