Wait, are these things worth something? I have one of the original Smash Bros ones still in the packaging, is that worth anything?

yes. people pay crazy money for some of them.  the peach one that's missing legs is worth like 200 iirc.

Is Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade PS5 out of print?  Prices are high on ebay and I can't find it in stock anywhere.  Same thing with Guilty Gear Strive PS5, it's been out of stock everywhere for months.

i think it may be. i had this same thought yesterday but was able to find a copy sealed for 40 and just bit the bullet. it could be some influx because crisis core just came out.

Is Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade PS5 out of print?  Prices are high on ebay and I can't find it in stock anywhere.  Same thing with Guilty Gear Strive PS5, it's been out of stock everywhere for months.

If you're just looking to play, I have a really hard time believing that it's going to be unavailable for long.

 

It seems like pretty much every Final Fantasy or Kindom Hearts game these days eventually gets repackaged or re-released within a few years in a form that includes more than the orginal release.

 

Here's my wild speculation for what we'll see over the next few years:

- Part 2 is released

- Part 1 Intergrade sees a re-print

- Part 2 gets DLC

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: Story So Far Collection" is released including Part 1 & 2 + DLC

- Part 3 is released

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: Complete* Collection" including Part 1-3 + all dlc for 1 & 2 is released

- DLC for Part 3 is released

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: Perfect Final Collection" is released including Parts 1-3 and all DLC on multiple disks

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: 8K Remastered Part 1" is released for PS6 on a single UV-Ray Disc

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: 8K Remastered Part 2" is released for PS6 on a single  UV-Ray Disc

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: 8K Remastered Part 3" is released for PS6 on a single  UV-Ray Disc

- "Final Fantasy VII Remake: 8K Remastered Complete Collection" is released for PS6 on UV-Ray Discs

...

- "Final Fantasy VII Re-Remake: Remastered Again" is released for PS9 with an ad campaign that declares it "A perfect holiday gift for grandpa!"

Don't forget all of the mobile tie-in games, the Netflix/Amazon/HBO tie-in, the gacha collaborations, the cloud-based Switch ports, NFTs, and infinite overpriced merch. Square Enix loves whoring out Final Fantasy.

 

Maybe if we're lucky we'll get a Dirge of Cerberus remake like we did with Crisis Core at some point in the mess, but that makes just enough sense for Squenix to not do it.

A fantastic game, definitely recommend it. I really need to play Silmeria one of these days.

Otome * Domain released on Steam/Johren from Shiravune. I highly recommend buying on Steam and getting the 18+ patch from Johren, as the credits system on Johren is awful. It is highly recommended to play the 18+ version, as the all ages version cuts out a route and a lot of little side story things. I will likely play this in the next few days and give impressions.

 

Steam

18+ Patch (NSFW)

 

Johren also has their winter sale going on until January 19th, 2023. I would only recommend this for games ONLY on their storefront. These are the English exclusives I think are possibly worth it : 

 

- Dohna Dohna (haven't played and has questionable subject material, but is highly rated and is by Alicesoft)

- Icha Icha Steady/Study & Steady (Barely recommend on these mainly cause Study & Steady was extremely buggy for me and was just OK story wise)

- Marshmallow All the Way Home (Another barely recommend as the story is very, very average)

- Meteor World Actor (This one is a must and has a very decent story. The sequel is on Steam)

- Primal Hearts 1/2 (Alright moeges)

- Suzukuri Dungeon: Karin in the Mountain (No idea about this one other than it's a tower dungeon defense game or something)

 

Johren (NSFW)

 

JAST USA has their winter sale also until January 4th, 2023. I like buying from them, and they have quite a few exclusives.

Denpasoft has their sale until January 15th, 2023. Most of their games are on Steam and have easy to use 18+ patches, but there are a few exclusives here too.

Don't sleep on your local pawn shops. Even they have Christmas deals.

Got a couple by me. Deals vary by store; pricing is all store level and depends on person's mood. Last time I went, games had no prices on them. Guy came up with numbers on the spot.

That's hilarious!  I never played it in English.  I used to have the Japanese PS2 and Dreamcast versions.

Wow, that english translation and that voice acting... I'm usually the guy that's like "eh, it's not that bad... I prefer the dub"... but wow... not the case here.

 

I have the third game on Wii.

Somebody needs to make a new Clock Tower game. Only it should be a spinoff called Clock Tower Defense, and it’s a tower defense game where you defend an actual clock tower from scissormen and giant babies and suits of samurai armor.

I’d buy it for like, five bucks.

#36353 Tothoro  

Posted 30 December 2022 - 02:48 PM

They kinda made a new Clock Tower game with NightCry. It's written by the same guy and even has a scissor-wielding bad guy:

Unfortunately, the game is just... not good. It's extremely glitchy and has a ton of performance issues.

hahaha.  I sold my copy for $260 on Amazon but the dude returned it because it was imperfect with some shattered plastic.  I was going to open it, get a new case, and sell it as 'used - very good' but it looks like that ship has sailed now! :bomb:

 

Sell your hot items when they peak, kids! You won't miss anything. Those gobs of money can be spent on more collectables and consoles.  Most things become much more available again, one way or another.

I’m sure they’ll get more printed if the initial 3k sell out fast.  
 

it seems reprinting rare games is really working out well for them.

Yeah like with AoT Final Battle PS4. Initial batch sold out, then did an open preorder, and you can still order it on the site.
