Video game hoarding to sell later is a fool's game IMHO. I'm very sure many LRG purchases and other limited purchases will crash and burn in price, which has happened to quite a few of the releases already. Collection of Mana I can see going to half off easily. Remember that S-E had limited copies of I Am Setsuna and that other RPG game from that studio physical copies and they both crashed in price as well. I wouldn't do it at least.

This 100% remember when everyone was losing their mind for not getting Wonderboy or Night Trap. They are easily available now. Yes some games go up in price but they are just as susceptible to go down as well.

Remember when those games were slightly worth something before everything got re-released on switch? Life was good. Now I have stacks of SMRPG vita just collecting dust.

 I sold Gryphon Knight Epic for $300 from SLG. No standard copies from LRG go close to that. The Jak 1 CE is the only thing in months that actually has good resale value. People who're holding on to a ton of sealed games will be in a for a rude awakening. How much Is a library of shitty games worth anyway??

Ps4 games hardly have resale value

Yeah, they for sure over saturated their own market and then some, but who the hell was gonna buy Power Rangers anything? Is that franchise still interesting to anyone(asking legit)? During their E3 show, they made a big deal about it being available RIGHT NOW, and I was thinking is anyone gonna rush to buy this? I thought I must have been missing something, but maybe not? LOL


Yes, plenty of people still enjoy Power Rangers. Myself included. This game shouldn’t have launched until everything was in place, but it’s pretty decent all things considered.

Yeah that's true. Trying to sell a lot of PS4 LRG games now and getting no interest.

 

Unfortunately I sold off most of my Vita LRG games in a lot last year . I think I sold 24 for $550 which was underselling. I kept some of the pricier ones. While they would go for more now it's not enough to where I'd lose sleep over it.

Two solid games coming this Friday at LRG. Pix the Cat (Vita) is one I never have played but it looks really fun, and hard. Freedom Planet (PS4, Switch) is a great game. Too bad no plats for either game. Hopefully LRG limits Pix the Cat to one per person for both batches.

Freedom Planet looks really good, kind of like a well done Sonic clone.

 

And yeah, all future LRG Vita releases should be limited to one per person considering they've been selling out in under a minute now.

Ugh, I was really really hoping for at least separate trophy lists on these. It would have been so fun to go for a plat on Pix the Cat after 100%ing the PS4 & Vita versions.

Celeste will be at Best Buy but The Messenger I do not believe has a retail release planned.

Bummer with Celeste being it won't be complete because new dlc is not on the disc.

Celeste will have the DLC.  That's why there is a delay in shipping copies out.

Wasn't messenger through like strictly limited or something and lrg was just doing a non numbered release of them with alternate cover? Or am I thinking of another game?

Yes, but I believe they said if you buy once their copies arrive, it doesn't come with the deluxe packaging, just the plain sealed plastic case.

I really wish LRG made this clearer but anyways glad I'm wrong. Will pick one up from Best Buy.

Thanks for the info. Sucks I missed the extras but happy to be able to buy them from Best Buy or the site when they come out. Guess I'll wait on Hollow Knight until the new release with all the DLC attached too.

Huh? Hollow Knight is already out too.

There was a misprint where the DLC wasn't on cart for the Switch version, maybe that's what he's referencing?

 

Also possible he's confused and talking about Sliksong (that was originally supposed to be DLC, then became its own game).

They all were affected, looks like the new copies will be out in August.

Yeah that's what I was referring to, which I learned a couple pages ago. The last DLC isn't on the initial run cart so they're releasing it again later with everything included. Looks like they're doing the same with Dead Cells and Celeste, hence the delay. I wonder if The Messenger carts will have all the DLC when they're released.

They won't. Messenger supposed to be shipping this month, new DLC is next month.
