#14290126 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Jurai on 19 May 2020 - 04:52 AM in Video Game Deals

This is my only gripe with LRG games and why I'm reticent to order from them IF (and only IF) the game is going to get published and sold via retail stores anyways. With SOR4, I wanted to support them, but I'd rather get it EARLIER so I can play it (I only buy physical games).

For other smaller-run/lesser known games, I'm super grateful LRG brings those games to physical release. Will always try to support those releases.

That all said, it's unfair for LRG because games like SOR4 and Shantae probably became popular enough to get larger physical print runs BECAUSE of LRG, and its developer-friendly approach towards not demanding exclusivity. This, however, does mean LRG will sometimes get burned. Kudos to LRG, though, for honoring cancellations on SOR4. They're a solid company, and I hope they're around for a long time.


Shantae was pretty popular before lrg, I wouldn't attribute them to it's popularity in the slightest

I suspect this is an age gap thing. Some of us are old enough to remember when games were complete when you bought them (and tested, qc'd etc.). Those who grew up with last and current gen have always had to download and patch games. I would much rather get a game a year after release with patches and complete on disc/cart. This is my biggest gripe about LRG changes, because that was a "founding principle" to preserve complete games so you did not have to depend on digital patches.

 

I mean, look at Night Trap vita, not gonna be reproduced and the physical cart can't be fully completed without patches that came later

Is Night in the Woods still on considering what happened to the creator? I haven't heard anything about it since.


It hasn't been labeled cancelled just delayed until who knows when after the one dev stuff

I could've sworn there was more discussion about it in Discord, but searches didn't find anything more than Josh acknowledging it couldn't be shipped. Searching in Discord is kinda awful, but things like "Metal Slug ESRB" and "Metal Slug 3 cover" didn't return anything. Possible that I'm misremembering or possible that they really want to brush it under the rug to avoid the wrath of ESRB.


They suppressed all talk about it, I guess they thought they could just evade the esrb or something I don't really know. I'm not in the discord but I've heard they were trying to stop discussion

Could be true. Scott pilgrim is getting a Dolby theater re release this year.

It won't win back anyone. No one really left them. Despite all the bitching and whining people still buy from them. They aren't small time anymore and don't act like small time. They act like a normal business that's getting bigger which makes them less personable and more focused on money. But no one will be won back because they want to hate lrg and will find any reason they can to do so.

Their flightyness is proof of that. One minutes it hate and anger at them, then they announce one game and suddenly everyone loves them again, then they go back to hating then again.

I'd support them more if Josh was gone, that guys a piece of shit

Edit: and a shantae gbc cart just shits on collectors

I'm curious as to why LRG is getting away with selling repros of N64 carts. I thought that was frowned upon? If they can sell repros (counterfeits) then why is it wrong for some random idiot on eBay to sell bootleg N64 games as long as they change the cartridge color or sticker image? And why are their repros so high? I thought they priced things for materials and such but if you can buy repros on Chinese sites for $10-$20 then it doesn't make sense that LRG would be charging $40 plus shipping. I also don't understand why shipping something in a bubble mailer is almost $6 from them.


I haven't seen a disassembled lrg cart so I'm not sure what boards they contain, they could be using a domestic source instead of getting bulk Chinese ones

Can’t you buy scrub games for the jewel cases for a fraction? I’m not into that scene- guessing no?

big problem with those is that the cases just aren't very great, they break very easily

Ebay prices for Papers Please are already stupid high. One seller even has 5 copies. Must have been a group effort there.

Just curious, but how did you find out about this? There was nothing on their twitter & I haven't been e-mailed about it from them yet either.

It's on their website, not sure when it's going up for official preorder

I didn't really know about the game too much. I knew the score was low but assumed it was because it was mostly a graphical update with old mechanics (which I was ok with) but some of those improvements seem like they should have been there day one. This just sounds like a bad remake. I'm gonna pass on LRG's release. I don't really like the idea of gambling on the physical copy may or may not have the update. 

 

I could be wrong but I thought one of LRG's MOs from the start was that the physical games being produced would have all available patches in place for the sake of preserving games against digital going away

 

In other news, Strictly Limited is releasing Coffee Talk on PS4 and Switch

It sounds like there is a disc with the game, but the game wouldn't be DRM-free. Considering all the confusion following LRG's first tweet, it'd be nice if they'd respond. Even if it's just to say the discussion is ongoing. Though that should've been determined before the promo and tweet were released.


LRG doesn't respond any more

If you ever want proof how much LRG blows, look no further than all of these collections of games released individually at $30-40 price premiums that could have easily, and should have been, released in multi-game collection packs. Everything from Star Wars, to Jax, Samurai Showdown, to Kemco RPGs, Neo Geo games, you name it. Don't get it twisted; ALL they care about is money. Their business has nothing to do with benefiting collectors or "the physical preservation of games". The first clue was all of their crappy paper-laden collectors editions. They are taking entire catalogues of games , some of which contain a mere hundreds of megabytes of data and could easily fit onto a single disc, and splitting them out over several individual releases titles in order to profit as much as humanly possible and that's all there is to it.

People need to wisen up. Almost everyone on here has already. But I still can't believe that other people support this kind of stuff.


Could be mistaken but wasn't there a time where they claimed pricing would run based on digital pricing?

Warned and whoever made the poop game both come to mind. I don't know if they were actual scams or just wildly incompetent, but the people who lost money to these companies probably don't care about the distinction. I remember the guy behind the poop game insisted up and down that he was legit but had run out of money in like a week when no one took his company seriously. Can't remember what Warned's excuse was.

 

It's also disappointing to hear about SRG's customer service issues. Just need to hope I never have a problem with an order, I guess.

Poop game was legit and shipped and is one of the high dollar PS4 games on ebay now since people thought it was fake

So I checked stock of the Shantae GBC early this morning and they had 900 copies of each loaded on the site, did they only sell 100 copies of each over all of PAX?

Snatcher for me is Kojima's finest work, that isn't MGS1, and I've sworn off his current offerings until he revisits it, as that new delivery service game he offered looks like ass(no offense to anyone who is enjoying it). LOL Snatcher is probably my most played game that isn't a platformer like Mario, were I'll play a few times over for kicks or 100%, Snatcher I'll play once a year just to experience all it has to offer. Nothing original overall, as it borrows from many popular movies and stories, but the music is some of the best, as is the voice over work in game. I would love to see a modern day take on this, as the investigation side of things could use a major overhaul but doubtful it ever happens, but one can dream.

I lucked up in getting my copies, as I started collecting Sega CD when the next gen was on the rise, so I got Snatcher from a gaming liquidator at the time for $30 if memory serves. I got my CDX new in box in the same manner for next to nothing, as the SEGA CD bombed, and back then no one was concerned with collecting, so I got tons of stuff cheap(online shopping was in it's infancy). Now that being said, I sold my 3 copies of Snatcher over the years in the $80-$100 range(1 opened, 2 sealed), and now I see the going rate and want to slap myself. LOL

So for those referring to loosing value now if a reprint is offered, what is my argument, as I sold mine before the value was crazy, do I now deserve to complain and get more money from those who bought my copies? I get that someone who buys a game for hundreds of dollars due to scarcity may not be happy that the same game may now lose value, but that's what happens. This can often happen in the reverse, as you may buy something cheap no one wants, only to have the value climb years later, are you going to sell that game off to some for what you paid for it? Of course not, but that's pretty much the argument being made for a reprint to not be offered.


I recall Sears fire selling the CDX at one point

I'm kind of surprised there's this much demand for ps2 ports, i had no interest in the others, i think its rediculous to try to pass ps2 ports on ps4 discs

I mean, LRG has been selling PSN fodder on discs for awhile so

First time checking the Metacritic of these LRG releases?? The thing that makes me laugh the most about these guys is that they act like they are long time gamers. If they were you'd think they would know what a good game is.


They're just grabbing for money at this point
