Super Star Wars SNES was in there... There's no way in hell that's getting a standalone release. Bounty Hunter is standalone, likely because it's a more "modern" release

You're talking about LRG.   Super Star Wars may not get a standalone release, but if it gets released as a collection, it's probably going to be with the other two "Super" SNES ports and nothing else.  While it would be great if all of those old SNES/PC games were on one collection, that would be very shocking.

Ok, nevermind... Looks like they are totally reaming us with mostly individual releases...

And I don't see the SNES games on the list...   This makes it sound like LRG is going to be releasing NES and Game Boy games??? 

 

Yeah - I just watched that video again.  The SNES games weren't in it.

I could've clearly mistaken the NES game for the SNES game... so don't quote me on that.

Many of these games have been bundled more than anything and have been sold as 'Gold Box editions' at retail for years.  They have no value. 

 

This is the kind of LRG thing that gets my cynicism going.

There are brand new PC copies of Shadow of the Empire for $15 bucks right now.  So I don't know what LRG is thinking if they are just PC release

I'd be ok with it if they were bundled into 3-4 collections, but based on what they are saying about the first two releases, that looks like a slim chance.

I was hoping any of the Rogue Squadron games would be included. I would have also loved a 1 disk collection of all of those.

Is there any reason why Power Rangers is $60 when the digital version is only $20?

Yes.    If you want a 60 dollar Power Rangers coaster then yes,

It's pretty feasible, they've released physical retro carts in the past, and repros are pretty easy to produce nowadays. none of those are necessarily hard games to source a cheap copy of though so who knows

-Metal Slug is welcome, shame the other Geo games didn’t make the cut.

-Excited for the 3DS release and it sounds like they have more in the pipeline.

-Lukewarm on many of the Vita games (aside from Papers Please and Meat Boy) and the classic rereleases like Turok and the Lucas collection are passes.

-can’t wait for Transistor and Blaster Master.

Thanks for the link! I didn’t realize there was DLC for this game. I feel a little better about the price now, especially with it all being on disc.

did they post any info on the Monkey Island release?

It looks like Power Rangers won't ship out until November. Does anyone know why? Is there some DLC or something they're waiting on? It seems odd to put it up this early if it won't be shipping for that long.

My thoughts:

-Only truly hyped about Night in the Woods and maybe Transistor.

-Vita games look mostly crap, but I'll buy them all anyway to finish the set. Wish they weren't extending all the way to 2020, no idea why they would, but whatever.

-Ports of Red Faction, Turok, Star Wars, Corpse Killer, Myst etc. aren't needed

-LRG getting the Shenmue III collector's edition is gross

-Pleasantly surprised by 3DS collection and happy they're not trying to make people buy both Mutant Mudd games and Xeodrifter separately for a third time.

There was a season pass that they're going to include the content from, and the game has kinda been a mess content-wise. It definitely released very unfinished, so they released some characters for free.

Not big on Star Wars, so I'm happy I can pass on all those.

I bought the Digital Collector’s Edition of Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, but always wanted a physical version. So I’m double-dipping and grabbed the Switch Mega Edition. Hopefully by the time it’s released, they get the rest of the Story Mode and characters out.

Still not getting what "STAR WARS (NES, Gameboy)" means.   Or maybe I do if they are literally going to sell NES and Gameboy carts.  I guess this retro cartridge stuff is going to keep being a thing.  I will fully expect them to meet iAm8Bit's pricing structure.  I was actually a bit excited when I saw their Earthworm Jim 1 & 2 SNES release until I saw the price. 

 

Ok - I did just see the story saying these games are being released on the original platforms.  So, Shadows of the Empire and Episode 1 Racer are going to get PC and Nintendo 64 releases. 

 

Unfortunately, if they are re-releasing big box replicas of these Monkey Island games, they have got me.  I would say I am 100% in for any collector's editions, but LRG can probably find a way to keep me away (poster, trading cards, and a 3.5" diskette USB drive all packaged in a monkey shaped box!).

Could be worse, like a random 99 cent PS4 game in a fake NES World Championship cart case with a Stadium Events slip cover with an Air Raid keychain and some Dracula X stickers in a Turbo Grafx CE box for $300.

sigh looks like my Jak and Daxter CE is lost in the mail...

 

the last status was a week ago that says "Package transferred to destination UPS Mail Innovations facility".

 

Usually LR packages have that status and then 24 hours later they have a different status like "arrive at the destination UPS Mail Innovations facility." or something like that, but this one just never updated with a new status.

 

Great, the one item I really wanted is lost, and is also super limited, I really hope they have replacement shipments available for stuff like this just in case. 

I had a 4 day update gap so I'm sure you're fine. For me, nothing from LRG ever delivers on time. My Jak CE was supposed to be delivered Friday, but will come tomorrow as it's finally in my city.

Wait what? Why would anyone do this? You can buy an original CIB N64 copy of Episode I Racer off eBay right now for $25. And $40 for Shadows of the Empire.

This isn't related to the E3 announcements, but I just got my standard edition copy of Game Tengoku CruisinMix Special in the mail today from LRG and popped it in to play, turns out only 2 of the 3 promised pieces of DLC are on the disc, which I'm a bit upset about (especially since it is $9.99 to buy separately, and it being on disc was part of the appeal)

 

As per the product listing, this version is supposed to have have Clarice, Homura, and the voice pack DLC on disc, turns out Homura is not unlocked. I don't think the CE versions of this game have gone out - I know there was a little bit of scuttlebutt because that version has an exclusive 4th DLC (Tatsujin) - but I'm curious if that version has all the DLC it is supposed to...it must be a different printing, presumably, if it has different on disc DLC.

 

The game has been printed already, so I guess nothing can be done, just felt like I've been lied to on this one. Seems like a pretty big mistake to make.

If they really are being released on original systems, then it's an easy pass for me. I'm not a fan of these "official" repro games.

I missed the release date, so that makes more sense. The Digital Deluxe Edition came with the season pass, which is to have 3 new fighters, but they haven't revealed who or released any of it. I haven't seen any solid answer if the season pass content is on the actual disc/cartridge, but if it doesn't come out til November, hopefully that's indication it'll all be on there.

Like you said, it's probably too late for anything to be done, but I'd suggest tweeting about it and let LRG know.
