No. They made a distinction between artbook and the codex. If you wanted the codex, I think you had to pay an extra $30.

I'm looking at it now, and due to the wording on the $125 tier I thought I was receiving the hardcover codex.   I was wrong.  Apparently you had to pledge in the $220 tier.  *sigh*  That was the item I was looking forward to the most.

Yeah, I only got a chance to take a small look yesterday at mine, and it's pretty impressive. So are these rare or something? I only got it as I'm an art/guide book type of guy, and figured it would be cool in regards to game info and such. I really didn't know what to expect, or if it was something I needed or not.

 

I'm amazed it wasn't damaged to shit, as the packaging here was lackluster at best, but by some miracle everything seemed to slam around in some vacuum, as nothing was very secure. While not the best KS offerings I have ever received, all this stuff seems 10x better than my recent Shantae offerings(which took over 2 years). I don't remember what this cost me Vs. Shantae, but I'm fairly certain I could sell all I received for at least what I paid, and then some. Where the Shantae stuff I wouldn't come close to what I paid, as that stuff probably wouldn't sell for half of what I paid. LOL

I don't know how rare it is. Maybe they will have some for sale at Conventions.

I believe you could've added the Codex separately for an extra cost. The $220 tier got the Codex for free I think?

I was disappointed with the Muv Luv CE. I thought we would get a higher quality box containing the games.

As others a have stated, the box is flimsy and the games were separate.

Oh good, my crushed Muv Luv CE box arrived just now.

 

I'm so happy.

 

Glad I waited, literally years, for this day.

To everyone that has received a damaged Muv-Luv set:

But my CE of Muv-Luv arrived on Friday in minty-mint condition. Sorry to hear anyone received a copy damaged, but can't say I'm surprised, afterall, what can "brown" do for you?

My was from DHL.  Looks like they're using all sorts of methods since people have reported USPS and Fedex too.

 

The worst part is that it won't even be dealt with until after they ship out all of the original orders, which they "estimate" to be around the middle of the month, and after that, it'll still take time for them to sort through all of the requests, so more waiting again.

 

A very big part of me regret even going for this all those years back, and not foreseeing the possibility of this kind of a screw up, when I really should have.

 

A small dent on a corner, fine, but rips and tears on the box, not fine.

 

So salty...

Never Kickstart a game. You only end up with endless apologies.

Yeah I didn't back them, but I've certainly enjoyed Wasteland 2, Shadowrun Returns, Hand of Fate, Bloodstained Curse of the Moon, and the crowdfunded Pinball Arcade tables.

I always do the checklist for Kickstarters:

 

1. Does it really need my help before the campaign is over?

 

This mainly is checking to see if my contribution really helps push a stretch goal, or just get it funded. This disqualified some games like Mighty no 9 (good thing), Bloodstained, Shen Mue 3, etc..

 

2. Is there something KS exclusive that I can't get afterwards?

 

This has to do with exclusive promos, hard copies, etc.. I usually don't care too much so this doesn't sway me much.

 

3. Will it be available after the KS?

 

Somethings are hard to predict, such as the Glory for Rome Black Box, but most things can be retrieved afterwards. Promos and physical goodies may be harder to get.

 

 

So pretty much I only back visual novels I feel wont make it (which most do) and I've been Kickstarter free since the end of Muvluv, which I regret a bit honestly, since I could have received the physical Vita version anyway from retail stores.

As far as I could tell, they only made the Vita version retail so that PQube could recoup their costs for production.

Sekai Project's highly dubious business practices appear to have caught up to them. All of their announced Vita titles, except for Rabi-Ribi, are very likely getting cancelled in the coming days. Disappointing, but then it's hard to take any game announcement from Sekai Project seriously. Probably going to drag their feet on their Switch announcement titles three or four years too. At present time LRG has sadly delisted "Vita" as a platform for all of the planned Sekai titles, might just be the nail in Sekai's coffin, or maybe just wishful thinking on my part it would kill off this joke of a company.

Ever since Sekai never delivered on the Fruit of Grisaia Vita port (I believe this was on their Kickstarter), I kind of gave up on them.

 

At the least they must have heard some complaints, as their 18+ releases have been releasing the same day as their normal releases for their later releases on PC.  Before it would be hours/days/months before we got those and you can believe I was complaining on here.

I don't care much whether a Kickstarter actually needs my investment, as long as they're actually open about whether they do or not. My main two concerns are whether those in charge seem to be on the level (aka whether things will actually pan out), and if the exclusive bonuses are worth my money. I learned the first lesson the hard way with Mighty no. 9. But I've also backed a few projects without opting for exclusive bonuses at all, just because I believed in the project, and they worked out fine.

I finally got my Muv-Luv Vita games. For a minute I thought they sent me the collectors edition by mistake, because the box was so big.

Anyway, I’m just happy to have the games after all this time. I don’t think I’ll ever back another kickstarter again though. It just left a bad taste in my mouth.

FWIW, non-gaming / non-tech Kickstarters aren't nearly that much of a roller coaster. I primarily back indy graphic novels and haven't had too many issues (only disaster was Totally Messed Up, but I managed to get my order filled).

Devious Dungeon just went up for sale on Play-Asia! Get it while it's hot, it'll probably sell out fast as limited production as they claim it will be.

Play-Asia releases don't really sell out fast. It seems like they are constantly having sales on previous releases to clear out inventory. Right now if you buy Devious Dungeon you can get 50% off X-Morph. All these deals make me want to wait until there is some sort of promo or deal since availability doesn't seem to be a problem.

Yeah, that's very true, as most games sit more often than not. This game is a smaller run, but also a rather less known game as well, so no telling how long these may sit around? Of course that's the risk you run waiting for a sale on certain items, but I would agree it's probably a safe bet here.

That's true for the PS4 releases, but I believe every recent Vita release has sold out in a few days without being discounted. I don't think anything's gone on sale since Tachyon Project and Semispheres.

Man you guys weren't kidding, the Muv-Luv box was comically large for two vita games.

Maybe Play Asia will have that B1G1 deal on their Play Exclusives again
