This will go well

Yeah, I know right? Why not just have two separate listings with big PEGI & ESRB symbols front and center in the preview gif? A drop down menu seems like that will just cause issues, especially if people don't know there will be two versions before hand. Oh well, another well thought out LRG plan, glad I'm not apart of it either way, but I'll be curious to see how well it goes.

There was already a Vita PEGI retail release of Teslegrad... Not sure why they couldn't have made the new print all ESRB tbh. The collectors edition is completely unnecessary imo.

Lol and don't forget PEGI trash logo.   Truly disgusting.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

 

They know it will sell regardless.  Once again taking advantage of Vita full set collectors.  Although I have a feeling that Soedesco may be more to blame for that.

Whew, you guys were right. That drop down menu was a real doozy to navigate.

Looks like they put all 1500 Teslagrad up at once.  Down to 888 copies of ESRB version.

Something weird happened with Teslagrad and I'm sure that was a factor. The ESRB version was leaked years ago and it's just now actually coming out.

 

Anyway, was able to get my copy without issue. Now I just wish Nicalis would announce when their games are going up.

ESRB going fast!!! Down to ~600 left within minutes. The PEGI version has over 1,300 available.

Edit: Wth makes this a "value pack" as advertised on the box!?

what games is Nicalis going to announce to put up?

VVVVVV, and 1001 Spikes for sure (Sony employee copies were leaked to eBay) and most likely Binding of Issac. All exclusive to their store, no partnership with LRG as far as I'm aware.

Got my ESRB copy easy. Also got a weird pop up that said "ADD ONs"---first time I'm seeing it on the site---but I clicked through the checkout so fast I didn't pay attention to it. Are they not going to ship it in a box? Don't all Collectors Editions usually ship in a box or have they changed that?

They said on Twitter yesterday that it will ship in a box, even for one copy.

Figured the PAL version would go a lot slower given that there was already a physical release of the vanilla version. Also, I assume the vast majority of people who want the PAL version reside in Europe, so shipping costs for them are quite a bit more. Kind of odd to have LRG handle the PAL version when it costs so much to ship from the US to Europe. Seems like it would have made more sense to manufacture more ESRB copies rather than do the 1500/1500 split.

Surprised I was able to get Telsegrad ESRB version at 1:40 pm EST. Saw it went on sale while I was at work but had to wait to get home to order it. Thought it would be sold out in minutes like most Vita games. Outer box and tin cover is bland imo.

Wonder if Teslagrad was part of the negotiation to get other companies to give LRG carts to finish off their production. (give us blank carts and we will distribute the game for you)

Probably a combination of being an off-cycle Tuesday release and them forcing you to buy crap you dont need by only offering a CE. With that said, at 1500 copies it will probably end up being one of the more expensive Vita games.

Shocked that there is still inventory for Teslagrad. It looks like a cool game. The animation looks terrific.

I was shocked that the Spelunky CE listed so long as well. Their loss.

Anyone notice that the Super Mutant Alien Assault game is priced $20 higher than the PSN version??

i worked up a list of what i think LRG will do for the final releases based on PSN prices, the now failed notion of a $10 premium price for physical (seems like the new way of things will be 15-20 over psn)
 

Game psn price my est LRG price
  • Super Mutant Alien Assault - July 5th                      9.99 24.99 (29.99 actually)
  • Metal Slug 3 - July 12th                                           14.99 29.99
  • Atari Flashback Classics - July 2019                       19.99 34.99
  • Deadbolt - Q3 2019                                                   9.99 24.99
  • Damascus Gear Operation Osaka - TBA 2019        19.99 34.99
  • Damascus Gear Operation Tokyo - TBA 2019         14.99 29.99
  • Revenant Dogma - TBA 2019                                  14.99 29.99
  • Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken - TBA 2019            6.99 19.99
  • Rocketbirds 2: Evolution - TBA 2019                         9.99 24.99
  • Super Meat Boy - TBA 2019                                    14.99 29.99
  • Papers Please - TBA 2020                                         9.99 24.99
 
so i am expecting at least $15 over psn prices on every release going forward.  Its uncool, but ce la vie

Then buy the digital versions and stop complaining. You still get to play the game, you aren't missing out on anything. It isn't like they are ripping you off or over charging you because you can still play it digitally for much less money and it's the exact same game. You want a premium version of a game then you pay the premium price. Dont want pay to pay the premium price? Then dont.

 

I mean these guys have to pay themselves, their lawyers, the shipping dept, website hosting fees, electricity, taxes, pay to have the games made and shipped to them, marketing dept, buy food, pay for insurance on everything and a hundred other things. It's a business selling small amounts of things, they aren't making an endless supply being sold at a thousand retailers for years to come. And what they do sell is already available to you elsewhere for less, and they are also not essential things they sell. You dont need to buy games from them in any way, shape or form.

Did LRG ever confirm you had to buy all the Vita games directly from them to get the “free bonus game”? Or was it just that you had to prove you had all the LRG Vita games even if you bought them elsewhere?

They flip-flopped back and forth, but they've just refused to talk about it recently (on their most recent Fireside Chat they straight-up said they didn't want to go into detail about it). I don't think they fully thought through it before announcing it and now it's just a headache either way.

It’s an ok game with good graphics. It starts off decent but the physics is inconsistent so you can do the same thing over and over and get different results. It made it hard to tell at times if something was purely impossible or if the physics engine was making it near impossible. For the $1 (or free on PS+?) that I paid I had some fun. I. power my way through more than half of the game before giving up and determining it was no longer worth my time.

I’m more surprised it’s sold so well, but it’s a low print Vita game and people are looking to make profits.

Your review was spot on, as I felt the same way, except I actually finished it(or at least reached the last boss). I did look up videos back when I was playing, and some guys where able to do things pretty consistently, or at least that's how it appeared. So that made me try a few situations longer than I should have(as that shit can get frustrating), as I tried to get better with the games mechanics. I was much better by the end, but it was still a chore, and why I didn't have much interest in this release.

 

I did want the art book, but the overall price didn't seem worth it to me. If anyone wants to sell their's to try to recoup a few bucks, as they may have only wanted the standard, hit me up with a PM. As I would gladly pay someone $20 for it, plus shipping of course. LOL
