And both copies of Battle Chef Brigade have overtly smushed, creased, damaged cover art. That's 3 releases and 7 total copies in a row of damaged Switch games. What the Fuck are they doing over there?

And the really weird thing is that the Battle Chef that I bought at Best Buy today doesn't look like this. Nor did Golf Story, for that matter, which makes a manufacturing issue seem unlikely.

Is this LRG's first PS3 game? I'm a little surprised to see them release a PS3 game... 

 

In other news, I received S&S. I never thought the day would come but I finally have S&S!:D

You have to gauge the community interest in order to really get an idea of what the actual after-market value is going to end up being. You can't just assume that the scarcity will take care of the issue for you. Scarcity is far more important in the long-term, not the short term. I small print run for a title that know one knows about and fewer people care about isn't going to go for much in the after-market. A game like that needs time and exposure for it's small print run to start working in its favor. Flippers who pile on such titles end up losing money, or at least not making nearly as much.
 
Night Trap was an easy mark. It may never have had the critical acclaim, but it had notoriety and historical significance to spare. All the classic game collectors were familiar with Night Trap. And the version they put out here was arguable the best release of the game ever, making it that much easier to go after it. (no postage-stamp sized videos for this version, no sir) I personally spent extra for the Switch version, just for the novelty of having this notorious cult-classic on a Nintendo system.
 
A lot of the lesser-known LRG releases aren't going to be sure-fire flipper titles though. Toe Jam and Earl is probably not going to be a very good flipper title. It has the name recognition, but any half-decent collector knows that it is a modern indie game, and not a re-release of the original title. It's also a title that hasn't even come out yet, so there is no way to properly review it for critical appraisal. Much more risky for short-term investment. If the reviews for the game come back negative, short-term collector interest will nosedive. Only the most die-hard fans and collectors show up for a bad entry in a series.


Yeah I get what your saying. Im just saying night trap ce was worth it. I ususally dont get the CEs unless it has a steelbook. I didnt realize the steelbook alone was worth so much but when I look at the ones I have with it some of the artwork is insane amazing. As for TJ&E im going to pick it up since i collect all of their switch releases.

Yes this is the start of a “small but mighty run of PS3 games” as LRG puts it.

It's coming out on Switch so we can expect that from LRG at some point.

Great.  I don't know how I missed that.   That PS3 version won't be sitting on my shelf for long (if it even ships before they put the Switch one up for sale).

I’m disappointed that the TJ&E CE comes with a blind-box component and even the mega bundle didn’t gaurantee all pins. I don’t mind the “skill” it takes to snag a LRG release, but have little interest in gambling on top of it (already got my endorphine hit from mashing the order button).

TJ&E also had so many great early promo collectibles: the Genesis game case, the vinyl figures, etc. it’s not clear to me why some of that (with the exception of the game case) didn’t make it over to LRG.

If the blind boxes go well, it won’t be long for LRG micro transactions.

I believe LRG sold the genesis cases that were leftover at one point, definitely woulda made more sense as part of the CE though

Someone with the digital copy did confirm to me that the game has local 2 player on pstv through arcade mode when a 2nd controller hits start.

However, who knows if the physical LRG copy will support pstv since previous digital titles with pstv compatability did not work on pstv when released physical by lrg. (Senran kagura bon appetite, rabi ribi)

Can you hook physical carts into a pstv? Kinda makes sense for physical to not have it enabled in the SFO config

Hook physical cards? I'm not 100% sure what you mean, but the PS Vita TV has two slots: 1 memory card and 1 game cart.

I mean plug a physical card into the fucking thing, it's not rocket science to deduce

Yes, pstv does take physical vita carts.

Regarding the pstv compatability, what's strange is the US digital counterparts of certain games & the physical versions of certain games from other regions do in fact work on pstv. However, not all the LRG physical US copies do. (omitting whitelist tampering).

I'm assuming developers have to double dip on paying extra Sony Fees again to include official pstv compatability on their LRG releases despite already paying for it on the digital or foreign physical counterparts. So they cheap out and don't do it.

Because it's not the word anyone uses for cards or carts. Hook the credit card in the reader. Hook Mario in the Nintendo. Hook the P4G in the Vita. Hook the SD card in the camera. Yea, none of those work.

I couldn't tell if you meant something specific like modding, because you can actually hook a microSD to it, but I couldn't figure out how you'd mod it to hook a game cart to it.

And sorry I didn't really believe you didn't know a Vita TV had a game slot.

Prick.

Their update page says the standard copies should be arriving now(any day), then off to manufacturing, then a proper update later on once more info is known. https://www.limitedr...duction-updates

My understanding is that it's just a matter of checking a box or something along those lines when they submit the game so that it is PSTV compatible.  I don't believe there is any additional cost, just extra attention to filling out the (digital) paperwork.  It's too bad they don't pay as much attention to these details when making the games.

Thought last day to earn points was the 14th, per the tiny blurb in Spelunky announcement email a couple weeks back?? Am I missing something? Was planning on cashin' out on a bunch of protective cases or something to not let them waste away at month's end but if I'm being a dipshit and this somehow wasn't the rewards program they're discontinuing I'd much prefer holdin' onto em.

They extended it through March:
"After internalizing the feedback, we’ve made the decision to leave the ability to earn points active until March 8th (one month from now). The last day to redeem your earned rewards points will now be March 30th. After that, we will discontinue our subscription to the rewards software."

There's a lengthy post about it on their site with more details:

That's one I've been waiting for. Just going to get the standard, but it does look like a fun game.

Never heard of Koihime Enbu Ryorairai before.  Checked out a trailer for it.  The amount of jiggling is making Mai Shiranui blush.

Wouldn't mind seeing that one trailer? But what I can say is the soundtrack sounds absolutely rocking. *almost* Falcom JDK levels of awesomeness.

 

I told myself I'd buy every Japanese-made game LRG publishes but I may pass on both fighters because it's just not my genre (these days).
