The law? Huh?
Does anyone have good experience ordering from this company? I had a pre-order with them that did not arrive on release day (or even 3 days after) which I cancelled. And a week ago I bought a switch game from them which has not yet been delivered.
Not impressed with Base so far.

I've never had an issue with them, all pre orders have arrived before or on release day. Other orders up to a week
Wasn't this a weird exclusive limited edition print run by that company that does a weird random pay lots of dosh and receive random limited edition unknown exclusive physical games in post thing?

And this game in its previous limited edition exclusive, weird random game exclusive club premium fee thing form was actually selling on Ebay for up to £70 or £80 quid.

It is all very strange and confusing? And perhaps not that exclusive or limited edition after all as it turns out?

Weirdness and exlusiveness, firmly placed to one side, it does look and review like an absolutely awesome game!

The first game for it's Switch physical release was done by Limited Run and popped up in Best Buy in the States and as the name sugegsts, a limited run, it never got a UK release instead being digital only.

The price difference is because it's newer, nothing else. The price different from blu ray to carts is pennies.

What are you talking about?! It's not pennies, even Nintendo itself had confirmed that at certain times the cartridge will cost £10 more than a blu ray equivalent, and it's down to the memory size of the cartridge. Nintendo had to develop the cartridge itself and charges that to cover the development costs. Blu ray is owned by Sony and they charge a much smaller fee to use the technology ($0.11 for a read only disk).

Its not wrong it's supply and demand. The Xbox version will be made in a far larger scale, and with a cheaper manufacturing cost.

Nintendo also spout a lot of Horlicks to justify their prices. A cart does not cost £10 more than a Blu-ray

Yeah. The fact endless repro carts have existed over the years for many Nintendo systems (ds etc) for insignificant amounts just shows that. They're basically just sd cards in proprietary housings.

But they can charge what they like, and they do. It's all part of Nintendo's quality control for some reason. You'll find any new Nintendo game is gonna be up to £10 more depending on the size of the game. Don't get me wrong, it's wrong, but it does cost game developers more to produce the game than on other consoles. It's one of the major reasons companies didn't just carry on making games on Nintendo consoles for a while and all jumped ship. It's just not worth the tiny profit they would make after production of the unsold copies.

It's always been that way, and they always use a new cart design and don't reuse. Even when they moved into trying disks they used the mini dvds(GameCube), Wii used a disk based on dvd and thus the games came fast and cheap(and are STILL being produced with new games coming out quite often). The same applied to the console itself as it was old technology used to read the dvd disk that they didn't have to develop and got Panasonic to change the dynamics of the disk slightly, the console was cheap and the games were cheaper than competitors.

On the plus side, they did develop the switch cart quite well, a cart will last much longer than a disk in most scenarios, and they added an ingredient in the manufacturing process to make it taste metallic if it goes near your tongue. It's to stop kids and animals eating it.

Thanks. Comparing the videos of the 3D style first game and the 2D style platformer sequel, the first game looks tons better and way more fun. Would it be fair to suggest this sequel game is a more basic, cheaper, less exclusive option? That's how it looks anyway.

Nah Impossible Lair should be treated as an entirely different genre, the first game was a tribute to the original Banjo game while this is a spin off dabbling into the 2.5D platformer with 3D elements realm. So both platformers but different sorts, the open world style collect-a-thon is extremely out of fashion these days so they wanted to try something a bit different for their next game.
