i stopped collecting when i found out Bards Gold is $5 retail. and most of the time it goes on sale for $1. that pissed me off. collecting them getting way too expensive for me. i only buy the ones i really want. ppl who buy them to resell, not gonna work. barely worth more than retail.

I'm a longtime customer but I'm actually close to not buying anything from them anymore (will give them a few more chances), even the stuff I really want to get.  I'll just wait for a good digital sale on something they are releasing that I really like.  Kind of sad that LRG is driving me to buy more games digitally rather than preserving them with a physical purchase, but that is what it has come to.

Well, when most games need patches anyways, the "physical" then becomes about 10% digital, which in turn means it's 100% digital, as the game is incomplete otherwise. Sadly, I don't put this on LRG, as the developers are the issue here(new industry norm), but as you say, it just makes the digital all the more inviting. Physical will always be my "thing" I guess, as I could always sell something after the fact, and that is of course no longer an option with digital.

Haven’t really thought about this too much but it’s absolutely true. They’ve drawn my attention to games I didn’t know about and I’ve bought them digitally for cheap. That’s positive for the industry but I was definitely anti-digital before. I’ve learned that if it’s really about playing a good game- this is what it’s all about?- digital is fine.

TBH many of these games are not good games.

LRG has been pretty good at making sure their games come complete in the past, at least when it comes to their Switch stuff. Of course they've also sold a couple of them before the games were even finished, so we got to wait for like a year after the sale to actually get them. They're getting worse about it though. In the past year they've started putting out a lot of games at/near launch, so there's no way those are going to be complete versions. Blasphemous is one that comes to mind: the game is solid but the platforming/movement is slow, muddy, and generally crappy--which is a cardinal sin for backtrack-heavy metroidvanias. The devs are working a on huge patch right now to make it better, but since the game is already in production we're screwed when it come to getting that patch on cart/disk. There's just no good excuse for rushing games like this out until they've been updated other than $$.

Just another reason why my purchases with them have slowed way down.

Personally, I'm still a physical guy, but I've chilled out about it quite a but. A few years ago buying physical was much more important to me because it seemed like physical games were close to dying off completely. Now that there are a dozen smaller publishers putting out physical games I'm not as concerned. So now the only games I buy physically are the ones I think I'll still want to own and play years from now. Then (following my rant from above!) I look for games that are complete or near complete on cart to make sure that they'll actually work years from now. For everything else, buying digital is fine, especially when they're so cheap.

And as everyone here discusses the decline of LRG, Generic Kemco JRPG Mobile Port #8376 sold out within 20 minutes. We can all look forward to the inevitable Generic Kemco JRPG Mobile Port #8377 coming our way soon.

All I wanted was Shadow Complex and Furi but it doesnt even look like they were on that list.

 

I bought one of the mystery box things for PS4 but Im not counting on getting one of those two.  Itd be nice if I get something I sorta wouldnt mind having though or something with decent resale value.  I just probably shouldnt have

I honestly want to know who these people are that buy the Kemco RPGs. I wondered that with mobile before LRG published physical copies. These people must be full-set collectors only at this point.

I stopped supporting them after they raised the price of Blasphemous at the last minute and claimed it was an error.

Woah, I guess I missed this. LRG decisions this year have really got me questioning supporting them vs my desire to have physical copies of games (at a premium price 😒)

I’m in the same boat, I plan to order these before the end of the day but trying to decide if I need a physical copy of Dark Devotion.

Is that confirmed? As someone else mentioned, they jacked up the price of Blasphemous at the last minute too. I would much rather wait and get the complete game, otherwise why even buy physical if you still download a huge patch to play.

Of course they add the following to scare people on the fence (or maybe to cover their behinds)

Best Buy has the ability to not move forward with their order, as it has not been finalized yet. Wait at your own risk.

Yeah I passed on getting Away today due to it still being available at the tale end of January + I hear it's short but if i can get it with something else at the end of the month I might actually get it. As poster stated below Original Sin 2 will be at best buy (thanks for pointing that out guys) on the off chance you wanted to wait on that. I will agree with you Dark Devotion is the one I'm interested the least in but it looks mighty interesting and I'm a softy for the genre hope you make the decision you are most satisfied with!

DOS 2 is a great game and I think switch may be a cool place to play it- did it on PS4. 60$ to just have physical on multiple platforms is stopping me. I’d definitely buy it for 25$.

Not directly confirmed, no. The patch is apparently out on PC already but not yet on consoles (ETA is just vague 2020). However, on LRG's site the game is listed as "In Production." To be fair, "in production" could mean a lot of things, but the most obvious interpretation would be that carts themselves are being produced right now, which would have to be without any new updates. There are also other game modes/features from stretch goals that haven't been added to the game yet, either. Obviously if the game is in production now the cart/disk will be missing those as well.

I'm sure they just want to capitalize on the hype and positive reception the game got at launch, but if these limited print companies have taught us anything it's that rushing these things along isn't necessary. In fact, every time LRG has asked, people have overwhelmingly responded that they'd rather wait to get a complete version of a game.

It's worth emphasizing again that I could be wrong about the situation with Blasphemous, or that they could still delay its release like they did with Celeste or PixelJunk Monsters 2. But it's their job to communicate their intentions to us, and AFAIK they've never said anything about which version of the game we'd be getting, so I skipped it.

Likely you'll be right and it'll be the broken version.  Same thing they did with Golf Story.  It was hot, they did a preorder, then they put a copy of the game on there from a year earlier before a major patch was implemented.  So even if there was a patch and it was available now, I wouldn't count on LRG making sure the version published has it.  Likely they'll purposefully not do the patch so they don't have to pay extra for ESRB to re-rate the game and they can do the minimal payment for the original digital version being converted for physical retail.

So, is the digital version also broken or do the patches from digital not apply to the cart?

It's the same case for both. The game can technically be completed now, but there are a lot of performance issues and the Survival mode crashes before you can earn some of the trophies.

Odd that they would include the original MS as a bonus but keep it locked until you beat the sequel.
