#14275245 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by Jurai on 24 March 2020 - 06:05 PM in Video Game Deals

Target stores are not answering any calls. I went to my local store to buy the PowerA switch controller that is on sale for $9.99 and it showed 2 in stock but the worker couldn't find either of them. Said the Target 15 min away had 4 in stock but when I called, a message said they aren't providing inventory and I couldn't even get through to anyone. I went home and called up the customer service number, explained my situation and the guy put my on hold while he called, after being on hold for 5 min, he comes back and tells me he called 3 different stores using their direct line and couldn't get through. He said this is the first time this has happened and the only thing I can do is drive there to see for myself.

 

Not sure if this is the new norm but local Targets are not answering any phone calls today.

 

It's almost like Target doesn't want you to come buy game controllers during a global pandemic

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

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?



#14272056 Fallout 76, Infamous SS 9.99 used@Gamestop

Posted by Jurai on 15 March 2020 - 06:05 AM in Video Game Deals

inFamous SS is a fantastic game that should get more recognition. For $10, it's well worth getting.

If you enjoyed Spider Man (2018), you'll enjoy inFamous.


Honestly it is a really solid game, the dlc was great also



#14271111 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Jurai on 11 March 2020 - 10:24 PM in Video Game Deals

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



#14270749 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Jurai on 10 March 2020 - 04:20 PM in Video Game Deals

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?

This. On topic, brickseek finally shows a TMNT cabinet for $299 in SoCal where these things never seem to get discounted since we don’t live in the boonies in Texas or Alabama. Will pick this up tomorrow to go with the Marvel and Mk cabs I have.


Thanks for the tip, bought them all, my grandkids say thanks

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



#14267841 Analogue NT Mini final run preorder

Posted by Jurai on 29 February 2020 - 04:04 AM in Video Game Deals

ELI5?


It's an fpga system that can directly run NES and Famicom carts and can also run ROMs via a jailbreak, and runs other systems than just an NE$ if you jailbreak

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

If you'd been following the discussion in a bit more detail, you would know that the "required protection" is just specific data being inserted at specific sectors of the discs. As such, any standard CD factory can print discs that are compatible with the PS1.

What is unlikely is the black-bottom coating that was common on original PS1 discs. That won't be happening. But that was just a peculiarity of Sony's disc production, to set their PS1 discs apart. It was never part of any sort of protection.

Saturn discs may be a different story. I'm not as familiar with the copy protection scheme Sega used for the Saturn. But for PS1, there are no real technical problems with new disc pressings.


Friend I'm the last person you need to explain the copy protection to

Posted by Jurai on 21 February 2020 - 11:33 PM in Video Game Deals

(glances over at the rather large number of official PS4-released LRG titles on his shelf)

Yeah...that's not really a problem. Official assistance from companies like Sony and Sega is a thing that can be had. Especially for a mini-publisher who already has a working relationship with some of those companies. Saturn reprints would be the more daunting proposition, given the marginal interest in the system to begin with. But original PS1 games would be a relatively easy proposition.

Also, the "protection" for the PS1 that you mention was a measure taken to lock out burned discs. Pressed discs with the correct region mark in the correct location on the disc would work just fine. It is entirely possible to press new PS1 discs that conform to Sony's standards without any exotic changes to the production line. This would also insure that the discs in question were locked to a particular region, but that was always going to be the case with an official release for the PS1.


I doubt any factory is actively set up to print ps1 and Saturn games with the required protection

I was really hoping to see a Switch Lite LE for Animal Crossing, might cave and get a second switch now though




#14260536 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Posted by Jurai on 31 January 2020 - 05:15 AM in Video Game Deals

So I managed to grab an (A) HAC-001(-01) switch for $190 + tax after the 20% promo.  Arrived today missing the retail box.  But all the pieces of a retail kit were present.

 

Was getting ready to transfer data from my launch switch when something started bugging me.  Apparently the screen of the "new" switch has a significant brownish tint to the display.  Below is a picture of my launch switch (top) compared to the "new" switch (bottom) both running equivalent brightness settings.  Has anyone seen this before?

I know they switched panel providers in the new model switch fwiw

This thread really shouldn't be in the deal forum anymore, I legit wasn't the other guy, but there's zero deals here, the owners are cucks who attack people that attack their failed business promises they gave up on for profits, etc
