#14367506 Official Playstation VR Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by Jurai on 05 January 2021 - 02:21 AM in Video Game Deals

And it would have been too if the cost of entry wasn't so high and there wasn't so many wires.


I will say the headset is very comfortable, what killed me was when they announced ps4 pro and HDR and the box didn't support it, like what in the hell why

Bojay is clearly Josh on an alt shill account, he's been busy trying to defend their crappy business practices on Twitter today, must be taking it's toll

I personally think they all have the same issues with lack of communication, delays and of course the usual demands that they should be selling at retail or pressing significant additional copies so that people can pick them up down the road at their leisure. One thing I think most of the video game limited run companies have done well for the most part is to avoid defects. Other than the occasional lack of promised on-disc DLC or a few defective copies, I'm not aware of any instances where an entire print run was bad. I can't tell you how many vinyl box sets have mass defects or errors (wrong tracks, poor pressing quality or the same tracks on both sides of the album when that wasn't intended). There have also been issues with some of the limited movie companies either using the wrong master materials or having other technical issues that have resulted in substandard releases. Certainly, statue and figure companies have had to cancel or recall product when things didn't go well in the manufacturing process and there have been plenty of limited edition graphic novels with mass print defects or print that was far too dark or smeared.


None of the companies mentioned screw up communication (if they even do any) like LRG

And? I mean you are literally in a thread with a focus on one specific limited game company. What does that say about you that you have such loathing for something that makes some other people happy that you feel the need to continue to spend time in this thread and criticize something they enjoy?


Where else would you expect people to criticize a company run by shit bags than in their company thread



#14366948 PSA Best Buy now giving refunds for Cyberpunk 2077

Posted by Jurai on 02 January 2021 - 10:06 PM in Video Game Deals

They could’ve saved themselves a lot of trouble if they announced earlier in the year that this is a PS5/Series X game, slapped new gen artwork on the box, and then said “play at your own risk” for previous gen. I’m not sure why they were so hellbent on making this a PS4/X1 release when it seems like a lot of the delays were around getting it to actually work on those systems.

They were too committed to the older gen base. it's still significantly older than ps5/xsx, and afaik neither company would let someone publish a PS4 pro/xbonex only release to have a last gen game that at least runs "ok" (fairly certain both companies force you to support the base releases). Probably would've been best off delaying another year, axing the last gen support in the process and apologizing, fixing everything with the game while the user base of new console owners grew, and then releasing.

I can't see them ever getting base ps4 somewhere that people are legitimately happy about even if all the random bugs are knocked out. The system can't run this engine, and I don't think they are going to be able to pull it off. Fixing the underlying bugs with the game is feasible, but I think the engine optimization need will get shot down when it comes to cost of dev vs profit. Witcher 3 did have issues at launch, but they have really stuck themselves in a quandary

Ironic how people here want to do the honest thing for a company that's often not.

A couple people exchanged e-mails with the guy that runs their store and were told that the Vita releases are still coming, but that they would be in deluxe packages which were delaying things.


There was some speculation that LRG was holding back so they could release after Nicalis and take the "we released the final vita esrb game" title, but who knows

Why not just get the Retron 5?


Because retrons are garbage by comparison



#14365933 Analogue NT Mini final run preorder

Posted by Jurai on 30 December 2020 - 12:12 AM in Video Game Deals

Just as an update, 3 of the 4 variants of the mega sg have now sold out on analogue. If the super nt is anything to go by, there may not be restocks for a longggg time. I would say get one now if you want it. The Japanese variant is the only one left in stock.


I resold some super nt ghostly systems for $800+ this summer, they said they had more SNT in flight but they are terrible about updating people on what's going on with production. I have the mega sg and really like it for personal

Didn’t enjoy it much. It’s souls like, you can find “shells” and they change your class / play style. It’s a little more action oriented but I still found it meh.


Yeah it really didn't live up to my expectation, I think it just had too much hype originally, was never going to live up to that

It's amazing how these two twits lit the goodwill they had on fire. I am savoring it... and only buying their games from Best Buy or secondhand on eBay for minimal markup, and skipping the rest.

 

I don't know how the LRG induced FOMO didn't combust when they hit 100 releases. 

I liked when they started out and were active members of this community, but clearly they were just playing us all for the long game to take everyone's money, I've gotten shit for pointing out they don't talk here anymore and it's like, the only reason we started supporting them was BECAUSE they were active members here and there was a connection that you wanted to support. I don't think Doug is inherently that bad but Josh is a Fuck nozzle

 

edit: also I still feel this thread should not be in this subforum, there are no deals to be had in here, it should be somewhere else

This was my initial thought as well, but, so far, Ubisoft usually distributes games themselves, so it'll probably be a regular retail release.

 

I'm still shocked Ubisoft released a physical version of 'Assassin's Creed Chronicles' on the Vita themselves when the system was already on its way out.

the scott pilgrim creator was talking to Iam8bit previously I believe, I'm sure LRG will try to weasel in as a secondary distributor

I really hope LRG fails to get the Scott Pilgrim release, plenty of better physical companies at this point to handl eit

I really don't care if the LRG I have dropped in value or if I won't play them again. Not every game in my collection is to play. There are many games that I will beat and then trade in (such as mass market, disposable crap from companies like EA, Ubi, and Activision) but then there's games (such as many of the early LRG when they were more selective) that have beautiful cover art and are nice just to look at even if I'm done playing them or they're unique games. I remember someone telling me that I'll regret having my collection one day if the games get disc rot or the carts don't work anymore and I told them I don't give a shit, I got my value out of playing them and once I'm doing playing them I keep them as art pieces basically so it doesn't matter if they'll work again or not.


You're part of the reason this shitty company exists, way to go

Off topic, but I know there are frequent ebayers here.

I bought 5 items from the same seller and only 4 items were in the package. I opened an item not received case for the 1 missing item, and just today pushed it forward to have eBay step in since seller was completely unresponsive. Case was decided in their favor because there was a tracking number associated with the item listing.

I see that I can appeal, but does an actual person review the case if I appeal or is it going to be automatically decided again? I have no "new" proof to show other than the fact that I only have 4 out of the 5 items in hand.

Thanks in advance.

You should call, do not rely in the online system

My copy of Streets of Rage 4 and Panzer Dragoon both standard editions for Switch arrived yesterday.
A lot of my previous orders are on deck and should be shipping soon.

So my big outstanding game order is Tiny Metal Ultimate Edition. Ordered in March and still waiting for it.
I know there was a problem with certification with Nintendo which caused the delay.
But no updates since September on that one.


I would question why they even had a title up to order it if was having cert issues

I mean, of late LRG isnt even disclosing if their games are gonna be at Best Buy until after the preorders close, not shady at all

I think the tides started turning in 2019. They clearly shifted from an emphasis in preservation to an emphasis in profit and there are a lot of negative ripples there - no more rewards program, the insane shipping backlog, etc. They've pretty well burned through their good will, but they're still able to get the biggest licenses and sell plenty of units so I doubt it'll stop any time soon.

There's a good post about it on Reddit here. Cites one of my old posts about the shipping backlog, which is neat.


Blaming their shipping backlog on covid was really pathetic, they took the cop out for the fact they are incompetent
