ESRB or not they are US SCEA numbered releases produced by a US based company and must be imported from the US.  They have always been region 1 / USA / NA releases.  Changes nothing. Other than games will prob be more expensive so the middle man HOA like ESRB can get their cut of free money via extortion.

Anyone know how re-open a ticket once it's been closed? They closed a ticket of mine and said to re-open a ticket if the issue wasn't resolved, but I don't know how to do that. Do I just reply to a closed ticket? 

 

If you can find the ticket on FreshDesk, just reply to it and it will re-open it.  Or find the e-mail closing the ticket and reply to it.

I got a Playism Key from LRG for Silver Case. I assume this for the 25th ward? When I redeem the Playism Key will I get another steam key for the whole game + new content? It looks like it but I figured I'd confirm first.

They have always been region 1


I think you need to go look at the back cover of all of your LRG games. All of the ones I own use the Region "ALL" designation. Ultimately none of this matters to me. I don't care what Region a game is but I challenge you to find an example of an LRG release with the Region logo box stating it's Region 1. I'm fairly positive (and I feel like I researched this and verified it before) that Dragon Fantasy TBTOI on Vita is technically the EU version on the cart since EU got that version while we only got the original Book 2 version on PSN. More lines blurred on what is the legit Region. Thankfully I don't collect by Region and don't have to think about that stuff let alone track down the other NA games that only released physically in Mexico. Not sure if Canada has any exclusives beyond cover art variants but it would suck having to track all of that. Anyway just had to point this out. That doesn't mean I believe they aren't legit releases, just they don't look like legit releases compared to regular retail games in great part due to the absent ESRB logo on the front and the ESRB box with explanations for the rating on the back.

How are you guys going to handle having some LRG games with ESRB logos/ratings and some without???

Scissors, cheap games and glue...

Waiting on Ys Collector's and Night Trap PC. 

Any clue on NT PC's date?

Ah, I see what you are going to do. Cut ESRB ratings from cheap games and glue them on the old LRG boxes so they all have ratings!

I would think stuff that's already printed would be grandfathered in

Based on the delays, I'm guessing once the date was reached when this was required, any games released after then would have troubles. Otherwise, most of the games that should have been scheduled for this month would have happened otherwise.

 

ESRB uh, seems like paying protection to the mob in all honesty. As it isn't really benefiting anyone, especially in LRG case, but it's a way to get paid, for doing nothing. By saying you must have this, and you have to pay us to make it happen, otherwise "bad" things will happen. Extortion is extortion, no matter who is behind it.

I used to just color over parental advisories on cds so my mom wouldn't notice. You could try that.

I'm jealous of you guys getting your stuff shipped. I always uses to get mine early and be one of the first to say it arrived. Now it seems like I'm always last.

Mine have always been all over the map. Some come quick, some when expected, and others......forget about it. LOL

On the Skullgirls website in late July and deep in this thread somewhere, they say - "Assuming everything goes smoothly, the Graphics Approval step is estimated to take five days, the Proofing step is estimated to take two days, and then Printing and Assembly is estimated to take 3 weeks for PS4, and 4~5 weeks for PS Vita."

 

I know we are only a couple weeks past their proposed time frame, but does anyone know where things aren't going as smoothly as expected, and do you know how long the delay will be?

Skullgirls PS4 is coming very soon, maybe next month. And the Vita version is going through final round of cert and will likely arrive November.

I'd prefer the option others have mentioned with reversible covers without the ESRB logo.  Since the logo always has to face out, that means all reversible cover games would have the same orientation and you wouldn't have to double dip to get one of each sealed orientation.

LRG posted on Twitter yesterday that the PS4 release will start shipping in the second week of October.  (As someone else mentioned, Vita should follow in November.)

So I should I expect it to get it at the end of October considering it takes up to two weeks for them to ship. :T

He'll have the first and only Night Trap copy rated E.

Before LRG, I thought all major console manufacturers required games to be ESRB rated before getting licensed - not from extortion fears from the ESRB but from fear of the US government coming in with its own rating requirement.

A sign of the times. The 90's AO is the 10's E.

And like all things that are no longer needed, desperately scrabble to perpetuate their own existence long past their usefulness.

Watched some gameplay and I think Absolute Drift is probably a pass for me. Will see what else they have planned for October.

They've been transitioning to trading cards for the last few months. The post cards and stickers are all done at this point I believe.

Thanks. That's too bad. I mean the cards are cool but I thought the other throw ins were really cool. The checklist thing was awesome. Reminded me of the old days collecting cards and getting a check list. Ah well.
