Over 3 times you say? Is 4 the number you were trying to think of? It comes right after 3.


I think he covered his bases when he said "over 3" which could mean 4 and anything after.

This box is still the dumbest.

I got mine from Kinkos months ago for cheaper. Also it didn't have a fake logo and a full side of too much text.

Since the title says this is the Collector's Edition box, maybe the regular edition box looks better?

OCD at work.

There is no end to the BS OCD people will spend money on.

Pre-order FFXV and get a limited edition soundtrack with Masashi Hamauzu's blood on it from when he accidentally cut his finger in his recording studio!

I'm sorry but this is stupid. These guys had no say-so on whether or not a game should be localized. And $600 won't cover shit. In fact, XSEED probably won't even look at you for $600.
However, if you want to buy this cheap, unofficial box for $10, go ahead.

I think a lot of people are mis-representing what OR actually did.

My take is that without OR, I wouldn't have ever looked twice at Xenoblade Chronicles (which ended up as my 2nd fave Wii game) or Pandora's Tower (a very unique Zelda clone). I was definitely excited about The Last Story though beforehand. What they did through their campaigns and whatnot was build more anticipation and spread the knowledge of the 3 RPGs, one (of many) genre that the Wii was seriously lacking in. They did enough to gain coverage on almost every gaming website and the 3 games are now synonymous with OR.

Of course, by the time they started this donation campaign, the word for the 3 games already spread (thanks to OR). Lot of people can say "whatever, we knew about these games and OR did nothing". I'm not saying that this campaign guaranteed anything, just that I think it did spread the word about the 3 games.

And honestly, it was $10 fucking dollars to hopefully promote more unique/new IPs on the Wii instead of all the shovelware/casual games that clutters its library. And thanks to OR, I think most of us voted with our dollars in buying Xenoblade Chronicles and TLS (twice even, once to import the PAL copy and once again for the US releases). It's not going to make or break most of us. (For those of you saying it's $10 wasted, that could be argue either way depending on what you consider as waste.)

Will this campaign do anything? Probably not... Nintendo's made it clear that it's moved on as the Wii U is only months ago. But I'm not going to cry over it, no matter how bad that box looks.

Right. I was following the game since it was called Monando and got GOTY in JP then again in EU the next year, for a Wii game, that was impressive.

LOL. Who the hell robs somebody, takes all the electronics, sees a case of empty cases, and makes sure to take that too? If this really happened, my thoughts and prayers to the people it happened to. But my BS radar is going off.

Sad to hear if it's true. But why wouldn't they put all that donation into a bank account? Unless...those thieves robbed their bank accounts somehow.

Sounds like someone found something they really wanted to buy and remembered they had some nice donation money sitting around.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.
