They *do* offer returns. For damaged items.

 

They *do not* offer returns for people who buy impulsively and then change their mind.

This^

That's pretty bad not accepting returns at all.  Any reputable retailer should, even if there's a short window or restocking fee.

Right, so all the scalpers can abuse the system?  I don't know of any limited item company whether it's games, posters, vinyl or whatever that allows returns for anything other than damaged items.  There would literally be no end to the abuse and ordinary collectors and consumers would suffer as a result of the scalpers being able to buy up the stock with no risk if the market didn't work in their favor.

I know people here seem lukewarm on Chariot but has anyone played it couch co-op who could tell me if they would recommend it or if I should just skip it? Had a lot of fun playing Pang Adventures with my partner, and it's getting so hard to find physical couch co-op games that I definitely want to support it if it's decent.

I'm not in a big hurry but I find it odd that both my tracking numbers (UPS and USPS) still show "waiting to pick up" for over a week.  I could understand printing the label early and taking a day or two to send it, but over a week is a little ridiculous.  Why even send out the shipping notification if the package isn't going to be picked up for weeks..

Normally they go active within a few days, but lately the few weeks seems to be the new trend for some. They had 20,000 orders to do, so I would guess making labels early is a part of saving time down the road.

 

Not ideal IMO considering the rabid fan base, as that seems like a good way to get a ton of unnecessary emails, but whatever works for them I suppose. Just sit tight, it will ship at some point. Also, I believe some orders in the last month have arrived for some, without the tracking ever updating. So that's possible as well I guess.

Hopefully none of you guys got more damage from the storms last month than me, but tree on garage and subsequent clean up / repairs. Point being you don't understand why someone may want to return something. This experience has certainly made me scale back all luxury spending.

That really sucks dude.. I also recently had to part with most of my collection after a couple of unfortunate events back to back, so I can relate somewhat. May I suggest in those cases just selling it though? You can get cost + shipping for most LRG games here on CAG, if not more. There are usually always a few people that for whatever reason either missed a game, or changed their minds and want a copy later, etc.

Yeah I have some stuff lined up. Went the return route but wiser to sell. I can make some more cash if need as well.

Appreciate the guidance!

"What is your Return and Exchange policy?

You may ask for a return or exchange within 30 days of delivery. Every request will be looked at on a per case basis however and is not guaranteed. Returns are subject to a 15% re-stocking fee.

Any items that include a digital key are completely non-refundable once the key has been sent to you."

Well, even though LawBreakers is out due to having a digital copy, it doesn't say damaged items only there...

Looks like the company with the unoriginal name of Strictly Limited Games will be releasing the PS4 game Tokyo 42 on Saturday November 11th. Only 2600 copies. No word on what time of the day though.

So are these the actual NES versions, or updated versions? It's the "8-bit" Adventure Anthology, so I'm guessing the 8-bit versions, but why? There are many computer versions that blow those NES versions out of the water, and all of them should run on these systems with no issues.

 

I mean, all three offerings are great games, but I don't see a high demand to play NES games on the PS4/ONE. And the NES interface for these games was terrible, so hopefully some form of enhancement is a part of this set. Otherwise I don't see this doing that well, but who knows?

I think these are simply emulated NES games running on PS4. I definitely agree that there are better ways to play them, though it would be fun to replay the NES versions since those are the versions I played as a kid. I'm interested in a physical copy of this simply for the nostalgia factor.

 

I'm interested to see what other anthologies they will release, seeing as this is labeled Vol. 1. I wonder if the publisher of this bought the licensing for a bunch of old NES games.

Yeah, my first experience with these titles was on a friends Amiga, so you can see my issue right? LOL I honestly didn't know these where even offered on the NES until years later once I first discovered emulation. I was shocked, as I would have loved to have played these back then, but after playing these on the Amiga first, the NES versions where very poor substitutes to say the least.

 

BTW, the standard version of Slain for the Vita is back in stock at Signature Edition, and is limited to 300, GO, GO, GO! https://signatureedi..._eid=d6f3f1d6c0

Where does it say it's limited to 300? It's probably right in front of me, but I'm not seeing it.

Sorry about that, it was in the email I got from them announcing it:

 

After the amazing launch of our Slain Signature Editions, we asked if you all wanted a standard version. The response was an overwhelming YES, so we put 300 copies on a special order.  
If you're one of the smart metal-heads that's already ordered the standard edition of Slain on PSVita, you'll be happy to know that stock has arrived! 
Orders will begin shipping immediately and should be with you soon. 
If you haven't got a copy yet, secure yours quickly by heading over to the Signature Edition Games site. 
Once the remaining copies are gone, we will not restock!

Thanks for the heads up on Slain. I already had the PS4 copy, but this seems like a game that I would very much like to have on Vita, too.

I would be willing to venture that the number of people who first experienced these on the NES was much, much greater than those who experienced it on the Amiga so that is likely why they went with the NES versions.  I would probably buy this compilation but only if it was priced right ($10 to $15 total for three games).

 

In other news, got shipping notices for everything that was pending except Caladrious Blaze/Flame in the Flood and Skullgirls combo pack (obviously).

Saw some movement (finally) on my Caladrius Blaze PS4 shipment. You guys might wanna track any games you’ve received shipping notifications on, just a heads up..

Kemco, now that's a name I haven't heard in years. They're still around?

 

If they are, we need a Phalanx Remaster.

We pay our partners royalties within days of a sale ending. It's one of the things that makes us much easier to work with than competitors or traditional retail. We can't accept returns/cancelations because of buyer's remorse or speculation backfiring. You should see the wave of support tickets we get requesting cancelations when a game stays in stock for more than a few hours because the game is "not rare"!

We look at returns on a case-by-case basis and we do accept them when the circumstances are sound. With LawBreakers, we sent out digital keys with a $39.99 value. All sales are final on any item where we send out digital keys - regardless of if they are unused. Who is to say the key won't be used after we refund a purchase? Most businesses, even huge corporations, follow this policy when digital codes are in the equation.

We did Asdivine Hearts with them. Personally, I'm hoping for a Top Gear Collection.

I'm still on the fence... I said earlier I was going to skip out on these two. But Since I have every PS4 LGR release except Saturday Morning RPG, the temptation grows stronger as 10 est nears.  :(

Is it just me, or have the CAG forums sort of died over the past 12 months? What's happened?...

 

:edit: Also, 4,000 copies for these two games seem like a lot. I'm really curious how fast they sell out.

For these two releases, yes it has. For more popular games, no, it has not.

I went a head and bought both. For the first time in months, I wasn't in a queue as I checked out.
