KoF on Vita tomorrow?

 

I may have to actually partake again, if just for this title.

 

It's something I'd actually play on my Vita while out and about.

 

Better get some stretches in for tomorrow,

Ready to order some animu waifu fighter game. Slowly counting down the LRG games I want to get...which is likely 2 or 3 now.

They just added a new KOF bundle with a hat.  Why are they trying to spread the stock so thin?  If people want the hat they will buy it separately.

They know they will sell out of the Vita version regardless i'm sure.

Whew, what a nightmare. It used to be that I could have multiple windows open for each item I wanted to order, and add to cart from each. But now it seems that adding to cart from each will overwrite my cart contents if I don't first refresh to pick up whatever was added to my cart from another window.

 

C'mon, LRG, browser tabs exist.

Yeah, this was the first time I ever had add to cart issues on their site.  Added first item to cart but it disappeared.  Added anther and it seemed to go through but then it disappeared after I added another.  It wasn't until about 10:02AM when the site was finally acting normal and I was able to add everything I wanted to cart and check out.

~4.5 - 5 minutes on KoF Vita., although the listing went up a minute or so late so maybe slightly less Not bad, easy to get. One per person item limits really do make a difference I think.

Actually i think it was buggy today. I kept adding to cart but it would keep saying it was empty. Finally I was able to add to cart but when i tried to checkout with Paypal, nothing would happen! So i kept refreshing, and clicking Paypal checkout until it finally worked. This is probably the 1st or 2nd time this has ever happened to me. All around buggy

Yeah, I mean wtf? Took me a while to figure things out after I kept going to my cart and there was only 1 item even though I kept ordering multiple items. Got the two things I really wanted and just said screw the other two things I tried to buy since I was worried things would sell out while I was trying to figure out the screwy new system. LRG always full of last second surprises.

Yeah I was starting to panic when my cart totals seemed off, after using different tabs.

Same, also had some weird issues as described. The "add to cart" button didn't show up for a good 30 seconds or so, and when it did it would either tell me my cart was empty after adding something, or when adding all three games on separate tabs I ended up with an empty cart at the end somehow. Finally got my order in after a minute or two by doing it all on the same tab, and going back to the main page after each cart addition. Hoping that's just a fluke.

Standard editions for me this morning. One of each, no Vita. For one-on-one fighting game I always go for the PS4 version. Vita isn't a particularly good platform for local multiplayer. I was sorely tempted by the Neo-Geo box, but managed to resist. My collection is unwieldy as it is. I need to keep the special editions to a minimum.

Yeah, I had the same issues, and thought I was going to miss out, but I finally got an order through.

Agreed, pretty sketchy way to push extra merchandise on people. But I guess it worked, looks like the hat bundle sold out too.

I wonder if the multi-tabs thing was their attempt to curb the bots dominating sales.  In a sense it crippled regular customers but if it also stopped some of the bots so everyone here that wanted the games got them then cool.

Yep. They knew it would. They have gotten to Gamestop "bundle" level. If people want that overpriced crap hat then they would buy it separately. Easier to move it by throwing it in with a game that will sell out fast and charge $20 more.

Same here with the glitch issue. Clicked on it like 5 times and nothing in cart then all the sudden I had 5 items in cart. By the time I was checking out I didn’t think there was a chance but thankfully it wasn’t just me.

Experienced the same issues as well but got what I wanted so it all worked out. As far as bundling, at least they didn't go so far as to bundle the game with the pin, key chain, and shirt. lol

 

Good to see SNK titles getting some love from LRG and good news considering the other games available for PS4 currently as PSN exclusives are all top notch, Last Blade 2, SSVS, and Garou. Hope we can get those in print too. 

 

Other than those would love to see a hard copy for the Castlevania and Phoenix Wright Collections. Time will tell.

The Phoenix Wright Collection info is dropping next week from Capcom.  Hopefully if they do a physical it'll be regular retail.

The wife comes through while I was stuck in a 9:30 meeting and was able to order standard editions of KOF Vita and Koihime Enbu.

Got the standard copy of KOF 97 for Vita. I super excited to add this game to my vita collection and very happy I passed on this game multiple times digital when it was on sale. Can't wait to see what other SNK games they may bring to vita. Fingers crossed for Samurai Shodown and Mark of the Wolves please!

I hope so--I must own a physical Switch version of that collection.

Not sure if this is wishful thinking but Play-Asia seems to have a listing up for the US version as "announced - preorders coming soon."

Nice find.  They also list X1 & PS4 versions.  The news dropped on Thursday that next week they'd announce the release date... hopefully then Amazon and other places will have it up for preorder.

I just hope that @Squarehard remembered to get buy the two new games with anime people on the front cover so that his life continues to be complete.

Sweet another Kemco game to skip! I have played them on my phone from sales, but yeah I'm not into buying those.

Fighting games like KoF I frequently get for the PS4, as having one-on-one gameplay is way easier on that platform. (for some very rare titles it is possible to make it work on a PSTV, but most Vita titles don't support the option) But Kemco almost exclusively makes single-player JRPGs with relatively low-res art assets. I frequently get their LRG titles on Vita only. Most of them usually run on the PSTV, and that style of game works well on the big screen as well as on the go. I like collecting for my Vita, but don't feel the need for a complete set, and I like to optimize the game to the platform.

 

Of course, if single-player JRPGs aren't your thing, or even if you only prefer the high-end releases, I can totally understand passing on the LRG Kemco releases. Even I can't deny that there have been A LOT of them. And while they do tend to be better-than-average efforts, few of them can be held up as shining examples of their genre. (none of them has reached Chrono Trigger or Suikoden levels of acclaim) And of course, there's the fact that they are all JRPs, which as a genre have always been fairly massive time-sinks. Time-sink + tons of releases = no time for any other games.

I play them on the phone...they're simple enough to play on the phone. Usually those cost me about a dollar during sales. They are OK enough, but I wouldn't ever recommend at full price. Still enjoyable enough and not too long.
