Fyi, Sharin no Kuni canceled at LRG. Currently in contract with another undisclosed publisher.

I knew this was going to happen considering how quiet they've been on Kickstarter about it. It's a load of crap really and I'm sure it's going to be EastAsiaSoft. I just hope they will allow refunds like Arcade Distillery did when they could not produce US copies.

It's not like Arcade Distillery has actually refunded anyone yet.

They refunded me. But I did contact them through twitter to get the ball rolling. They were fairly quick about it after that.

Damn, I'm still on the fence about this A Train Exp going up later this morning. The price is high but it seems like the type of sim game I would like.  Looks like I'll have several hours to decide.

The games have confusing names. This is the one - the “mini game” 8 bit KS stretch goal.

They did kind of a bad job naming the Bloodstained games.  This confusion happens all the time and even to me on occasion.  Usually I just go look up screen shots to make sure I'm talking about the right one.  In this case the context was clear that he was talking about getting the prequel that has the 8bit style graphics since the other one isn't out.  They should have just called the main game Bloodstained and then the other one Bloodstained Zero or Prime.. or better yet not made it a separate physical release but bundled it into the main game.  Yeah, that last one.

It's a similar naming scheme as Castlevania, but not so established that we can just gloss over the franchise name and focus on the entry name (SOTN, Portrait of Ruin, etc.). I still refer to them as "Bloodstained" and "that 8-bit Bloodstained."

All of makings of what most people claimed they wanted in a CE for Fata Morgana:

 

Good game - check

OST - check

artbook - check

small premium over standard - check

still expensive - check

 

Fully expect everyone here to try and get the CE now. with no complaints /s

I probably will, even though it's a VN.

 

And while we're talking about desired CE contents, I'll go ahead and slam that Dragon's Lair CE again since it has made a reappearance for the Switch.   That thing is such a disappointment.  A laserdisc styled box to house a fake laserdisc picture on a sleeve that houses a folded poster, papercraft, and a few art cards.  Once again, it's a box (and it makes a sound!  For now...) that is the big draw.  If anything screamed for an art book.... I know they take what they can get, but apparently so do LRG collectors.  I'm sure it will sell out again.

Of course the one Friday I'll be out of town is the week Fata Morgana goes up  :-(

 

Guess I'm gonna try from mobile.

The collector in me wants to get it but $50 is a lot for a vita game. Is there any reason they charge so much on their VNs? Nurse love was the same thing.

The nurse love games retailed for $39.99 on psn so that was priced per their +$10 to retail pricing rule.  Since THIFM hasn't officially released in the west yet, it's possible retail on this for digital is also going to be $39.99.

Yes, according to the LRG Twitter, the MSRP for the digital version will be $39.99 upon release.

You see this phenomenon occasionally. It especially crops up around more obscure Japanese games. The digital versions of these games are literally more expensive than most other standard digital games. The LRG pricing is consistent with how they usually encourage their development partners to charge for their games, its just that the developers have been consistently charging more for their digital equivalents.

 

These seemingly boosted prices most often seem to be for Japanese developed games, and also seem to commonly crop up for the Visual Novel and SHMUP genres.

Looks like they decided to put order limits on the Vita version of Fata Morgana: https://limitedrunga...ta-morgana-vita

 

I don't know if the lack of a limit was intended or if they changed it based on all of the Twitter responses, but I feel like it should've been that way to begin with.

I thought they've always put limits on the vita games?

 

That London Detective Mysteria game seems pretty meh in comparison to THIFM, might skip that one.

 

Also loving the artwork on the standard copy of THIFM

They have.  It was likely just placeholder text anyway, but Josh mentioned on the fireside chat a few months ago that they don't really make the final limit decision until the day before once they have seen how much buzz there is on social media.  If there is a lot of activity, they know it will be a quick seller and will set the limit appropriately.

from LRG twitter 

 

For anyone wondering - this release includes THREE games in one (plus additional short stories): The House in Fata Morgana, A Requiem for Innocence (a prequel), and Reincarnation (a sequel).

Oh 3 games. I've played about 3 or so hours of THIFM. It's an excellent game with a more non traditional story. I will pick that up and likely the other cause VNs I guess haha.
