I own a CIB copy of the original... it's the single most valuable thing I own (not counting my car or house since they're financed). But I'd def be for them re-releasing the game if it's clearly identifiable as a re-release somehow. Even if you can play it on an emulator, there's always some special joy with playing a game on the system it was made for... regardless of how crappy the screen on a GBC is. And IMO, it's still the best game in the series, by far.

Yeah, I've collected for just about every system I've ever owned at one point in time or another, and sadly all of those systems are now gone, with not much love lost. Don't get me wrong, I love original hardware, but over the years, the ease of use and improvements to gaming options just win out in the end. I just recently added a ton of emulators to my Vita, and I'm actually enjoying tons of old games like Shantae and the like, due to improve image, save states, etc. 

 

I know a lot of people say having tons of games at your finger tips leads to not playing any, but I'm the opposite, as having access digitally, makes me more likely to play games. As having to swap carts(which was the norm for most of my life), was always my least favorite part of actually collecting. I love playing physical games, but when a collection is HUGE, and has fragile game boxes, or manuals, emulation became a main stay for me, in just keeping my collection in the best condition possible.

 

LRG offering a game like Shantae is great, as even if I hadn't stopped shopping with them, I would still pass on this title, as I haven't collected for the GBC since the early 90's. No hate for those who are interested, as this is what physical collecting is all about, and offering games many no longer have access to cheaply, is a good thing. I'm expecting Snatcher from them at some point, as that will be a killer title for them, but I've owned 3 copies of that game in the past, and no longer have a need for a title like that either, but it will be great to see for those that do.

So how is blaster master 0?  I played the original back on the nes but that's it. But I did love that game.

 

I'm hesitant because I don't care for buying newer games on physical anymore. I'd rather buy older ones. Like panzer dragoon, turok, night trap, etc I'd gladly bought from them. I guess because of the sentimental value they have to me but I just don't get excited for limited run games that are just newer games on disc.

I played Zero(but not Zero 2) and its as good as the original NES. What I liked about it is that they finally gave you a reason(reward) to explore those other dungeons that you dont have to go into. Also the game isnt a 1 to 1 exact copy, so even though some levels will look and feel similar to the original they have change it up a little and added 1(or 2 i think) newer level.

 

Check out reviews in youtube, i believe all of them give the game positive reviews

Damn they're separate carts. Not surprising, but still a bummer.

I played through 0 and it's really good, very much like how you would expect the NES game to play if you cleaned out all of the NES jank. It manages to walk the Shovel Knight line of looking, sounding, and controlling better than any real 8-bit games without killing the soul of what makes those games great. I'll probably try running through it again to decide if it's one I'd like to own physically. Having both games on the same cart would've made that decision much easier, but oh well.

Ugh non functioning replica nes cart. God damn do I really really hate that in a CE. I'd like both and that price isn't bad for a CE but what a really stupid af bonus item.

I saw it's coming to psn on the 29th for 10 bucks a game. It looks pretty good but that's the route I'm going. If it were both games together I'd have bought it from lrg.

Transistor was also on sale for $24.99 when I checked like 2 days ago

Edit: I'm being too lazy to check myself, so putting it out there in case it still is.

Alright, count me among those on the LRG train. Decided to pick one up Brigandine: CE before the pre-order runs out. I don't usually buy these super nice sets, but man, I have a feeling this one will be hard to come by in the future. The original PS1 game goes for 200-250 used these days. 

 

Anybody know what's up with Strictly Limited games? That Darius collection looks awesome, but looks like the page hasn't been updated in a while....

Not sure exactly what your question is, but yes they are legitimate. I've ordered from them several times without issue and they release about one game a month. They aren't fantastic with their ship estimates, but you could say the same (and then some) about LRG.

I had managed to hold off on LRG titles for a while. I even turned my nose up at the Jedi games. Those are PC games in my mind, I'd rather have them digitally from GoG. But Blaster Master brought me back, and I threw some Brigandine, Icey, and Shantae on the pile while I was at it. All standard editions of course. Still, they got me back to buy more.

Have you played Icey? If you haven't, I'd exercise caution before hitting the purchase button. I found the experience to be pretty piss poor, what with it's awfully redundant gameplay, boring characters, and the most insufferable narrator one can imagine. However, if you have played it and enjoyed the experience, all the more power to you.
