That's fantastic news! Sound like this version will include all of the patches & DLC on-disc/cart too!

Now I'm actually happy I missed out on the LRG version, haha.

I was sad I missed the LGR release at BB, but now I'm not!

Surprised no one bumped the thread to mention that Blasphemous is getting a Retail Release in the US by publisher Sold Out. 

 

Also, No More Heroes 1 & 2 Switch will be carried at Best Buy. For those not wanting to pay for overpriced shipping from LRG. 

Japan is getting all three games on The Killion Dollar Trilogy Edition.  Now we have to see if English will be on it (the Japanese eshop does list English on 1 & 2 so it’s possible).  9800 yen for the set.

In related news Blaster Master Zero Trilogy is getting an Asia release (and has english) for PS4 & Switch.  The pre-order is up at play asia for just over $60 usd.  Glad I held out.  Will still wait and see if we get a north american / ESRB version of the trilogy.

The whole "can only play at 10 your time" thing is yikes especially considering https://www.techrada...ck-your-console

Forever physical or something


I don’t understand it. Is it an online game and the lobby is only open at 10 pm? Either way, only being able to play a game at one specific time may be one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard. That cuts a lot of people off from playing, some people work late, some people go to bed early, etc. I hope no one buys it to show them how bad of an idea this is.

I'm a fan of FMV games & I don't get all the hate for Ghosts. I checked out their video & thought it looked interesting, and the real time thing is a neat gimmick. I'm more conflicted about the price of a physical copy. After shipping it would be more than $60, I might just wait for LRG to carry it, it will probably be cheaper.

Anyone see the listings for :ps4: Revenge of the Bird King on eBay? They have the Limited Run Games branding on them.

Yes, all of the copies have that branding.  It's part of the reason the release was so controversial in collecting circles.  Josh claimed it was a mistake when Joe (the employee who created the game and released it) was making the cover sheet.

Is there a source on this?

They definitely have the option, but I'd like to see a press release or product listing before I decide to completely pass on the LRG preorder.

The listings themselves say :

"Best Buy may be receiving a very small number of copies of this game with alternate cover art. Best Buy has the ability to not move forward with their order, as it has not been finalized yet. Wait at your own risk."

This is the same fear of missing out verbage they use on all of their listings so that you may not take the "risk" of waiting for best buy... but the reality is, BB has yet to back out on a game that this message has been posted on.

You wont get some press release or even anything giving you a heads up about when BB will have them.  Just follow along here... the limitedprintgames reddit and a few other places and you'll likely not miss it when it happens since many are waiting for this and someone will surely post when it happens.

Ms. Splosion Man for Switch had that message on its listing and best buy back out of the deal

Do they not even check the games over anymore?

I bought the ultimate mega bundle or whatever for Shantae and I'm just sitting here thinking, at this rate, it's gonna be like 6 months per item and I won't see this until 2023.

Dumb question, but I take it the Doom 3 version in the Doom collection is the BFG version?

Really wish they had the original Doom 3 in that version as well, way to much ammo in BFG version IMO.

Ok, so one game out of a hundred or so games didn't make it.  The odds still overwhelmingly favor the NMH games showing up at BB... especially as they were previous retail games and with the sequel coming out should sell well.

I was thinking about picking up that Dangun Feveron game as it looks like it may be a decent shooter.  However when I saw $44.99 i think I will pass.  Too bad it's not $30 or $35.

It's $35 digitally and it's never been on sale, so $45 is not totally out of line. It's a good game and worth getting.

SLG just started shipping Coffee Talk. There are three other releases that came out before Space Invaders and after Coffee Talk. I'd expect at least a 3 month wait before Space Invaders starts shipping.

Oh yikes, their estimate was for December and since then radio silence.  I'm not as familiar with them so I thought I'd ask.  Thanks for the info

That seems like a good question because it's not clear. The posting says This includes three classic DOOM games preserved on one disc - DOOM, DOOM II, and DOOM 3! I take that to mean Doom 3 vanilla and without the expansion Resurrection of Evil.

The port of Doom 3 on switch includes the expansion.
Nintendo web site states "DOOM 3 includes the Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Missions expansion packs."

There is no version on Switch without the expansions included.

That’s good it has the expansions but I’m assuming that means it’s the BFG version. Still a fun version but would prefer the original version (I would prefer BFG if it didn’t give you mountains of ammo for even the most powerful guns).

And only 1 game on the disk.  I mean they have released some of the Kemco titles physically in Japan, but they package 4 together.

Good. The higher price tag for just 1 game makes each game feel special and more valuable. Please be grateful that Kemco would honor us like this.
