Great news for switch fans. I have one collecting dust on my shelf but if there are some good digital only games on the eshop then I’ll be happy to buy them LRG. Nintendo digital sales are the worst. 10% off a game I can buy on the shelf for half price or less? Yeah no thanks. I don’t even bother to check that thread anymore.

Yeah, their digital model is the worst. Hopefully once they get their online program going, and the VC, they will step in to 10 years ago, and actually have some quality discounts. But I don't recommend holding your breath for that, but if it happens at some point, it will be a nice surprise.

Feels good man.


I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

I need to get me a Switch. I've already got a few games for the system and I'm very interested in seeing what we will get from LRG.
Microsoft needs to jump on the train. I got my Xbox One before my PS4, because the new Killer Instinct was a dream come true, for me, yet my PS4 library is like 5 times larger than my Xbox One's.

100% don't doubt it. So I guess I need to decide now whether to collection Limited Run for Switch or keep collecting for PS4 like I have been since all of my previous LRG games collection is there and it seems dumb to buy two copies of the same game. How did you Vita and PS4 people ever justify it?

Open one version to play and keep the other sealed.

By holding out for Vita cart production to be stopped officially so we can move on to new platforms eventually.  As long as they allow carts to be made, all these collector exploiters are going to keep quadruple dipping as wide as possible.  Because really who else is still buying USA region Vita games besides USA collectors?  The only companies that still even make Vita games are ones that target collectors.  NIS, Iffy, LRG, etc.

I'm in a similar situation. Although to be fair, I did get my PS4 first. My Xbox One collection is small, and staying that way. My PS4 collection is much, much larger. It's an easy sell for the PS4 when all the games run as good or better on it, and the overall selection of desirable exclusives is much larger.

 

The platform that my PS4 sees the most competition from is the PC. A lot of the Japanese-style games that used to be exclusive to the PS4 have these days been getting PC ports. And the sky is the limit on performance for most of those, so a decent gaming rig can usually outpace the PS4 when it comes to those titles.

 

My Switch can't really punch in the same weight class when it comes to third-party big-budget titles. But I can already tell that it's going to be the go-to platform for smaller indie titles. So LRG releases that have a Switch option will likely have me showing up.

I was planning to get a PS4 this holiday if the price was right, but funds are a little tight, so I may roll it over unless a super deal appears. I probably won't be getting a ONE for a few years, and the only game I think I would get sight unseen, would be Cuphead in some physical form. A Collectors edition would be awesome if done right. But MS doesn't seem to interested in smaller runs, and really didn't want to be doing physical at all, so LRG may break thru at some point, but not likely.

It's fascinating to me that csbaker complains more than anyone else about multiple platforms and variants and yet is also the one who most mindlessly just buy up every single edition of everything. If anything you only have yourself to thank for all the releases you seem to dislike so much. Loads of us buy the games to play. it's just a silent majority because we don't have as much to complain about since we don't feel obligated to buy every single game. The more platforms and games there are released the better it is for consumers!

I think most of us have just learned to ignore csbaker.  He quite plainly has compulsiveness issues and can't get his head around the fact that most of us don't spend even a second of our days worrying about whether or not a new release will make our collections "incomplete".  It's pretty ironic that he's always complaining about Youtube and other media ruining collecting by over hyping things when he is constantly in a state of mental desperation as to what might happen with some new announcement or release that he just can't get to in time.  I mean it's literally the kind of clinical stuff you see on cable shows about bizarre compulsions and the sad part is that he thinks most of us have the same issues when it's really just him.

I was with you till the last line. I'd be inclined to agree that we are all compulsive about this crap or we would just save money and either buy digital or just play the digital versions we already own and be happy. If we weren't a bit compulsive there would be no complaints about games and the condition they arrive in let alone the size of the le box, a floating disc, or other nit picky compulsive stuff like tracking sales so we can buy more games many of which we'll never play. It's kind of screwed up and I have no problem admitting to buying physical games I already own digitally and can play without issue. The doom slingers that warn about games disappearing are only doing it to make money because if you look at the historical data for gaming you'd find pretty much the vast majority of games people actually like (regardless of having a physical version or not) are preserved digitally already.

What's even more screwed up is us folks (me included) that buy games that were originally free games. Like Cave Story. Why did I have no problem throwing my money at a physical copy for the Switch... well it's that same dumb compulsion to own crap because I've maybe spent 15 minutes ever playing the game in all the many years I've known about it before it even was packaged up and sold. And I'm sure a big part of that comes from the addiction of shopping (which I'm sure plagues a large number of us CAGs) coupled with making up for a childhood where getting games was rare so now that we can buy whatever there's so much less to stop us. The thought that there won't be any copies later to get adds into this mess.

So be careful dismissing the guy. Sure I think he's pretty far gone but it's just further down the path those of us with massive blacklogs have already blazed. Especially those of us (me included) that buy games with the intent to play them, build up nice collections, then eventually get bored or cash strapped and sell much of it off without evening opening all of the games and playing them even once. Add to this those that don't realize they have their own compulsive problem that will not realize what they are doing because it's not so bad that they actually break and see what they are obsessing over.

Food for thought.

I wonder what the base price will be for the switch. I'm assuming x 35 which is too high for these type of gsmes.

Switch releases are gonna be such a shit show. Yall know how Nintendo fan boys are and how the Nintendo scalper market is.

Hopefully high numbers or cross platform so I can just get it on Playstation.

I would think Battle Princess Madelyn would be one of the first, if not the first offered. As LRG is doing their physical offerings for that game. It's due out in early 2018, it seems the logical choice, and demand for that is going to be pretty high. So if "N" is asking for larger than normal numbers, 4000-5000 would seem feasible in that situation. I would also guess Wonder Boy could be the other first title, as LRG handled that already and also seems logical to do for the NS as well. Then of course it could be something not on anyone's radar, so time will tell.

 

Based on what the minimum that is being required here, we may see similar numbers to Vita/PS4, as even though "N" comes with the "shit show" as stated, the NS is at maybe half of the Vita lifetime sales, and no where near the PS4, so average games could do probably just as well in the 3000 range(give or take). Pricing is my main concern currently, as I don't see NS games costing $25. And I don't know if $30 is even possible. Don't be surprised if the base cost of these is $40, and most would still move with no issues, as it's "N" and "limited", so the skies the limit. LOL
