Its literally up right now.

I meant for PS4, my fault.

 

Edit: and apparently it did too, I guess I missed it.

Has anyone (YouTubers or website) reviewed these new cases by chance?

 

I got one of their Saturn cases as a solution for my damaged Snatcher cassette thingy from back whenever and if that case is the same as the ones they're selling here, then I'd pass on this. I have 20+ something Saturn games with good cases (no cracks but have other wear/scratches/scuffing) and the case I received felt notably cheaper than the legit cases. It did have the same design though, which is nice, but def did not fee. I'm wonder if it's been improved since then but... not worth risking for $80. Wish I could just buy 1 to test. 

I imagine they are the same cases they've been using in some of the CE's, I noticed the person that had been selling cases on Amazon that competed with LRG's ran out, so I wouldn't be surprised if LRG had just been waiting for them to run out of stock to bring theirs to market at a higher price. The Amazon person says they are gonna have more in September (https://us.amazon.co.../dp/B07GBMRQJW/)

I guess the bundle price was a mistake as they lowered it by $10

I actually had one of his cases too. His case was much closer in terms of quality- plastic density/thickness felt very close to originals and they actually looked newer (LRG case had a ton of scuffing for what they said was new, so maybe I got a spare defect copy that had). But the disc trays in the Amazon link did not have the little stub lock or whatever that would lock it into the back part of the case so it would just fall out.

 

There was a story about this, how there are two people working on replacement longbox jewel cases, can't remember where. This guy had no idea LRG was going to release reproduction cases as well. He said he had them made without the stub locks because it was cheaper but that since LRG's had them, his second run would have the locks as well.

I think the Amazon guy revised his design at one point but I never bought

Definitely have to get this. Is this a one off 3ds game or are they planning to make others as well?

As for LRG, I can't stand the wait times for getting the games (but its a known fact of ordering from them), but I just got my Jak Racing and Blasphemous CEs and they were pack REALLY well. Items always arrive mint, I will give LRG credit where its due. The shipping is high, but you get your money's worth, IMO.

That's the thing. People complain about LRG but that's just what we have to deal with in order to get these physical items which otherwise would not exist. If there was competition for this stuff and you can buy it elsewhere then of course it would suck. But you have to give them some leeway because of the way their business model works.

they increase shipping prices higher than normal because they need to buy packing materials and some towards employee pay.

So, Grandia this upcoming Friday, right?  I am dying for a killer CE with the soundtrack.  Can't wait for some confirmation.

I really hope the bots and hoarders don't ruin Grandia for everyone by buying up all of the copies in 20 seconds so they can sell it on eBay for $60 and making a whopping $5 per copy after fees and force everyone who just wants one for their collection to pay more. But then again, LRG should have a system in place to prevent this crap.

Another LRG noob question so feel free to haze me. Are the pre-orders all that's produced or is there a second wave of orders on release day? I'm bummed to see I missed the Master Blaster Zero games by a couple months :(

basically the pre orders are all they produce. One wave. but nintendo has thresholds for how many a publisher has to make. (hypothetically) So lets say there are 1422 pre-orders, well nintendo would force LRG to make a 1500 copies batch & not exactly 1422. So extras MIGHT be made but lrg usually puts those extras in blind boxes or for sale at conventions.

Best Buy is supposed to get some of at least the Switch version.

I didn't realize they're doing Grandia- when did they reveal that? Also, will it be the patched version? Not sure the patch does anything but better to have a fully updated copy.

They announced it at their LRG3 show

No CE unfortunately per Douglas.  Apparently the developer didn't want one.

This is the same developer whose CEO claimed no one would buy a physical version of the Grandia HD Collection, so I can't say I'm too surprised.

Yeah, it's pretty ugly looking but they said they were going to patch the graphics due feedback, but I'm not sure the patch did anything. I only saw the game pre-patch.

I know Grandia had good reviews back in the day, but I always felt it was pretty generic compared to other PS1 RPGs.  Hilarious voice acting though. Mostly from Mullen.

It looks like this game had its digital price reduced from its $39.99 launch price to $24.99. Hopefully the physical release is reflected of the lower price. That said, I know the game is short on content and won't have the DLC on disc.

For the collector's edition, the Dreamcast fanatic in me really wants that Dreamcast case (it'll match my 'Shenmue III' case, and I'm sensing a new trend here), and that poster is actually really cool, but the other do-dads...ick. Ok, the ring for the Move controller is neat. It's useless, but neat. But a fidget spinner? Fuck why?!


I personally think a lot of the content LRG includes in their collectors edition is just ho-hum, and SC5 is a perfect example of that. The included items are just bad.

I wonder how much they'll charge for Grandia. $40? $50?

It is $40 digital, so probably $60
