Yeah, Isaac showed up last year but VVVVVV and 1001 Spikes have been floating around for a few years. What we don't know for sure is whether any non-promo copies (i.e. without hole-punched UPCs) exist.

I know that its just this is the 1st time I have seen a physical copy of The Binding of Isaac

It's definitely the first time I've seen a Vita game sell for that much, damn

I just want to know if they ever really made an official run of games. I've never seen anything but hole punched promotional copies.

The fact that Binding of Isaac made it so long without promo copies being leaked gives me a glimmer of hope that Nicalis may just be really good about keeping it under wraps. Still makes no sense to me why they wouldn’t be transparent about it though, since it inevitably will lead to some horrible publicity. Which leads me to believe on the flip side that they just royally fucked up, and are just trying their best to sweep the whole thing under the rug. Regardless, the issue will never be forgotten, seeing as how their promo copies have become the grails for the system.

On the one hand it would be great if they were that good keeping everything hush hush, if this true, I'm more worried about the shitshow it will be to even purchase a copy. Most retailers underestimate how well their site/webhosting holds up under immense traffic.

For something like this, there would be so much angry, salty tears

Yeah, even if these are real, I'm not going to hold my breath on getting a copy of each game. I couldn't even get the last two Vita games from Play-asia because the server kept crashing.

I'd imagine if Nicalis did do a production run (which seems likely as why would the promo copies exist)... given they've waited this long... they might as well wait for all the dust to settle and keep flying under the radar so they can release the last physical vita game in the world.  LRG is still sitting on their stack of Bird King for vita with no clear plan of when they are giving them away to the diehard buyers.

Of course this will end up a major shit show... but I think if they offer the game first to email list subscribers that are also previous purchasers from their store... then they can gauge interest and then do a random drawing for who gets the option to buy them.  That would make it a pretty fair distribution without crashing their site from the onslaught of reseller bots, speculators, and the few remaining diehard full setters.

I may get the Mooseman but I have a strong feeling it will run like shit. I really don't care for visual novels so the other one is an easy skip. I really glad it is finally over. Now I will continue to grind out the platinums in Rayman Legends and Freedom Wars.

I finally got the diamond cup in Rayman Legends so I just need grind out my to level 11 awesomeness which sucks.
I've been deep into freedom wars since the announced server closure and I really am enjoying it.
I'm at the end game now though and it is really difficult with the AI. I hope I can get some online matches in to help me finish the final grind.


Did you luck out in the December weekly? I found out the day after and had been busy with family/work stuff - only trophy I need left and if fear I missed one if not the last easy glitched Murphy challenge. Where are people seeing the last physical? Play Asia? Maybe cause I’m on mobile the few images didn’t load correctly

Yes I did get the Diamond Cup and I am still grinding out bronze, silver and golds in the daily and weekly challenges.
Probably going to take a few months to get to level 11 with the low player base.

I'm not sure I'll even bother. I'm struggling to even get silver cups.

Vgplus (aka Gaming Citadel) has the Mooseman and Winter Daydream up for $58.49 on their eBay store. I caved and got Mooseman. It looks like Mooseman is release 72 and Winter Daydream is 73 if you zoom in on the spines on Play Asia.

I saw a post about the glitch about an hour after the new week started. On Ps4 I can get golds and have a few on Vita, but I am never going to get the Diamond without the glitch.

It took me a bit to get it to click, I am still not great at it but can occasionally get golds on vita and regularly on PS4. you need to key in on what stops/slows your momentum and interweave rolls and the arm spin to keeps your speed building. Check out a video of someone posting Diamond runs and my nonsense will make sense...

I figured it out, to get max distance you have to run as one of the princesses. It is kind of convoluted, but you pick the princess start the level to see which character is running end the level and select the character you saw, start the level again and you will be the princess.

HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL for the bump; I was able to post the .99 distance and am showing diamond with sub 30 minutes or so left!!! This was my last trophy for the platinum and I had all but given up especially after missing the December weekly!

- to switch to princess in a nutshell or put another way; the game won’t let you be Murphy and a princess at the same time. I played first as princess; then chose Murphy as character and it’ll revert your sub character to your last main one used; here being the princess, go into the level again as Murphy and it’ll swap them out and boom. Maximum effort for the final .99 (was only getting .79)

Everytime this thread gets bumped, I come in here hoping it's about the Nicalus games being released.  Maybe someday...or maybe not.

Thanks for posting but wow that was a joke of a sale.  Most items didn't even go up at 12 EST.  The 1 item i wanted, i added immediately and before I could even click "submit" it got taken out of my cart.  I had heard bad things about SLG in the past, guess their website isn't much better.

I found that everything was up early on the SLG warehouse sale. I was on the site at 11:57 AM and was able to add two games to my cart, but it wouldn't let me check out. Figured I had to wait until noon, but it turns out they only allowed one sale item per cart. There was no mention of this beforehand and it caught me off guard. Only ended up buying one game since I didn't want to pay shipping twice.

They pulled this same stunt during the last warehouse clearance. I was able to get two games but had to place separate orders and pay shipping twice, and their customer service refused to combine orders because they "no longer offer this service".

Yeah sucks people have to pay extra on shipping.

On the flip side though... I'd imagine this helps cut down on resellers looking to eat all the stock... and leaves more on the table for the average shopper.  Also, by limiting to one item they can prepackage stuff and the overall process to ship could be fairly quick if they just have to slap a label on it.   It would be interesting if SLG orders from this event show up in the USA before those that ordered domestically from the LRG warehouse clearout at the start of the year.

How do you sort by Crossbuy? All I see are PS4 and PS5.
