I’m in for one of each platform on this one. Leaning towards a Vita CE and PS4 standard for the sake of my Vita CE collection, but gotta wait for that to even be announced. It’s a pretty safe bet that it is coming and it’ll probably be identical to the PS4 one as per their usual.

Wondering if it’s worth trying to trade someone for it. Don’t really have the budget for it, but it is a nice CE. I’ve got some duplicate CEs I could/should use as trade fodder. Might check the trade thread and see what I get.

Phantom Breaker looks like a really fun couch co-op game. I’ll be picking up a PS4 copy for sure.

They've mentioned this multiple times before, but people still don't seem to listen. LRG themselves do not set the prices for each individual release. There is no "standard" price for LRG games. The developers have the ultimate say for how much gets charged for each release, and we've seen this occur multiple times with prices that vary and fluctuate on a per-title basis. LRG can and does provide advice and suggestions to developers on pricing, but they don't dictate the pricing, so there is likely never going to be any "base" prices, no matter what platform we're talking about. Some developers will charge more for some titles, and some will charge less. There may even be a few developers who subsidize their own releases, allowing them to charge even less. (not likely, but it could happen)

Bottom line, there are no real fixed prices for LRG games. Get used to it.


Get used to it? 😂

Just asking a basic question. I see you’re one of those take the path of greatest resistance types!

I plan on picking up Phantom Breaker on both platforms, along with Bastion.  As much as I like the look of the Phantom Breaker CE I'm still sticking with the standard versions for it.  Now if the artbook was hardcover that would have pushed me over for buying it.

No update on Super Hydorah Vita. D:

They sent out an updated e-mail.

 

Super Hydorah (Vita)

This is in manufacturing now and will ship in early September.

I'm interested in Phantom Breaker.. but I want the Overdrive edition on the switch since I have enough controllers there for the 4 player couch co-op.  I might just cave and spend the $10 and let that one be digital.

That production update email is crazy long. I never realized how many games have yet to be shipped.


Yeah, recent productions have ground to a crawl from the usual turnaround. Not a big deal mind you, backhaul isn’t getting any smaller.

Zero complaints here when I see things like this..

 

Aaero (PS4)
Aaero was held up while the developer submitted a disc image that contained the game's DLC - this has been completed and the games have been ordered from Sony. We expect this to ship late August or early September.

 

Cosmic Star Heroine (PS4)
The developers at Zeboyd Games wanted to fix some issues that were encountered during the Vita version's development and they made the decision to wait for that patch to be completed before pressing the discs. This allows us to include that final patch on the disc, which will result in a complete and final physical product. We expect this to ship in early September. With the 76 page manual - we guarantee this will be worth the wait!

 

Kingdom New Lands (PS4)
The disc image for this game needed to be updated to include the latest patch. This is now approved and manufacturing will begin next week. We expect this to ship in early September.

 

PLEASE keep doing this LRG.  I will gladly wait for a COMPLETE game on the disc.  Someday the online servers will be down and we won't be able to download patches.  I really like when the FULL game is on the disc without a need for an internet connection.   We all have so many games that an extra few months wait isn't a big deal at all to get a complete product.  Well done!

One of the reasons is probably because Sony is probably ramping up and focusing production for the Triple A titles set to release this Holiday. :lol:

Yeah pretty conflicted on this as on one hand the PS4 version has the DLC but on the other hand VITA! So not sure how I’m going to purchase this one.

Is Thumper worth it for the VR experience?

 

Yes can't imagine playing without it. Much more intense. Fun game but not something you'd keep playing unless you're going for the Platinum trophy. 

 

$40 is pretty damn steep for the game though.

So Tokyo Chronos will come out in like 3-6 years? I don't trust Sekai on the console game front. If I would play that game it would be PSVR though.

Sekai Project still hasnt fulfilled their partnership with LRG. And its been years. They dont really deserve much faith at this point.

Worth noting that, as of now, you can only obtain a physical copy by pledging at least $60 to the campaign. It was asked if a standard version would be released via LRG's website and they said, "we'll discuss it with them after the kickstarter."
Which basically translates to, "Fuck you. Pay us now or risk not getting a copy."

 

Just what you want to hear from a company known for missing their deadlines by years.

So you expect them to say yes and then lose out on potential kickstarter funds when they haven't met their goal yet and potentially piss off people who already pledged $60 or more.

You mean the very thing that several other, more reputable, companies have already done? Make a kickstarter variant. Make the collector's edition exclusive, as they've already done.

I've pledged to well over 30+ crowdfunding deals like KS, GoGo, etc., and they all fall in to one of two categories. First are those who have legit cash flow problems, and without proper funding their projects may not happen otherwise. The second are those who may have the funds, and don't want to risk their own money(Like Wayforward), or they may just want to improve on said project, and the added traffic of KS can and will help bring in more funds to improve a campaign.

 

That being said, it looks to me like this game wants both sides of the fence, and that's fine when it's made perfectly clear before hand. As stated, many companies have offered KS exclusives, while still offering regular retail releases, which is a perfectly fine practice. What's not cool, is saying after the campaign, further details will be given. It's very clear to anyone what the plan is here, and if someone opts to support this, that's their business. I would personally avoid a campaign like this, as anyone who would not give all details before hand, will also not think twice about ripping someone off at a later date.

I can legit say right now I don't know if we are selling any copies outside of the Kickstarter and if we did it'd be extremely limited.

If you're waiting for a Switch version of Phantom Breaker, it depends on the success of the PS4/Vita ver. If it's successful, it won't come until the middle of next year if every thing works out

Never believe the promises of Sekai Project ever again. Even after they dangled the Vita carrot stretch goal for more kickstarter money.
 
Absolutely terrible.. Literally no physical Vita titles from SP besides Rabi Ribi.

Pretty disappointing we are not getting those visual novels on vita. Thankfully I had already prepared myself for this outcome so it helped soften the blow.

I’m still pretty excited about getting these games though. It’s nice that I can still play them on my Vita through remote play too.

Fantastic PR by Sekai Project.

 

Sent out info saying Vita isn't dead. Only for the LRG Upcoming Games list to update and all SP Titles supposed to come out for the Vita get changed to PS4 only cept Rabi Ribi.

Perhaps if they didn't take 3 extra years to deliver, then Vita wouldn't be an issue :-k
