On a side note, do other people feel like 2017 just happened to be a slow year for indie game releases? 

 

Maybe I spent too much time on the NFL and fantasy football this year, that I'm out of the loop.  But I've checked out several goty and best games from '17 lists and there just wasn't a whole lot of good Indie action.   Seems like it was a down year.  It's probably hard to find good stuff to publish, let alone get a deal done.

 

The biggest things I heard of were games like Thimbleweed Park, Night in the Woods, and What Remains of Edith Finch.  I hope LRG can get some of those games.

Oh, the irony and lack of self awareness with this guy...


He’s right. You zero in on negative press like a fly to shit.

I really enjoyed Sundered, Steamworld Dig 2, and A Hat in Time.

 

EDIT: Oh and Flinthook was pretty sweet too.

Im kind of disappointed this is even the announced title. I thought the plan for Switch was higher profile releases at a reduced rate.

It's already been mentioned but Saturday Morning RPG is their own internally developed title so it makes total sense that they would publish a Switch version.  If you don't like it you're not forced to buy it.  I also expect Breach and Clear to eventually go to Switch as well.

 

Regarding the "Switch tax" I could have sworn Josh posted on here months ago that they likely wouldn't be charging more for Switch games as the costs were similar to Vita games and they didn't charge a lot more for them.  Could be wrong but I seem to remember that.

I read that at the time as well, but until a game and price is actually given, I'll just expect the worst(especially where "N" is involved). LOL

I beat Steamworld 2 on Switch before I beat anything else including Zelda and I bought Switch at launch. Some of it was timing and convenience of getting into a metroidvania game over some huge open world game but Switch is now my defacto system for smaller games. I just hope A Hat in Time and bunch of these other great smaller games get ported instead of some of the junk currently getting put on there.

I love these limited release of games, but the resellers really screw over fans.....

 

looks like chrisz300zx is one of the worst offenders, Limited Run Games doesn't see to care or want to protect their fans.....

 

but he's screwing people and abusing PLAY ASIA policy with bleed.

he's reselling FIVE copies !

 

I reported him to PLAY ASIA, I'd suggest you help as well.... let's keep the games to the fans, and

not the resellers who try to screw us over !

Bleed is still in stock at PA. If people are stupid enough to pay him almost double for one, then that's on them and him. Hell, I just sold a Cursed Castilla Vita copy for $55 when PA still has it in stock. I don't even remotely understand how someone can't google something to find it at retail for MSRP. But that seems to be the reality of it, and that's purely on them. 

 

I know the main part of the conversation is for things that are actually sold out, but it's never going to stop. And it's not always purely heinous. I've sold a ton of LRG and PA items. I typically buy two to have a better chance of getting a mint one out of it, and I can sell the spare to off set the cost of my one by a little bit. 

 

TL;DR: Drop the witch hunts ffs.

You do know they looked in to this guy many times in the past, and even bought from him in the hopes of getting to the bottom of this right? It has also never been proven this guy has done anything wrong. Just because he has multiple copies of something, doesn't mean he bought them all himself, or broke any rules to get them.

 

LRG stopped looking for him, as it was a waste of time, efforts, and funds. I would suggest you do the same, but if your really in to it, you could probably hire a PI and I'm sure he could discover who this is. But then what? What would that information get you?

This has to be the first time games went up for sale and zero people posted to this thread about it... well, until I just did an hour after they went up.

I may have to buy Croixleur just for the cards. I really like that cover art.

Unless someone here who plans to get the game wants to sell me their cards super cheap.

It has nothing to do with the quality of the games, I think people just have the games already. Relatively speaking the original Bit Trip games are pretty old. There's a physical collection for Wii and 3DS (I have the 3DS version digitally), and most who have these already probably have them on PC. I know I got a couple of these redeemed for free on Steam years ago.

Yeah, I agree, this is a rather old collection, which most already owning it. But it was also easy to get, so there really just wan't much need to carry on a conversation about it this morning. I grabbed mine at 7, and went back to work. We've had a few other titles in the past with low Friday morning chat, as some games just don't require a lot of talk.

I just don't feel as much of a need to post about something that has almost become routine. I did actually put in an order for Bit.Trip for the PS4 this morning, as well as a copy of Screencheat. Both seem to be solid titles. I didn't see anything to indicate that the Vita version of Bit.Trip runs on the PSTV, so I opted for the PS4 version instead. This has been going on long enough that a bit of the excitement has worn off. Nothing wrong with that, it happens to everything that endures.

 

I do already have the Wii version of the Bit.Trip collection. But I don't mind getting it again on the PS4, especially at these prices.

Yeah, these releases were far from exciting, no controversies about pricing, CEs, etc, and they sold as slow as molasses. I guess there was just not much to discuss.

When has that stopped anyone before?  Obviously it did, but it's just weird.  No "got mine, that was easy."  No "this is the end of LRG because these aren't selling out."  No whining about Chris having these up for sale on Ebay already for double the price.  Nobody even bothered to play the greatest hits.  

 

I'm not saying there was anything to discuss - I'm not sure there usually is.  It's just the first time I think it's gone completely silent during the 10AM launch before.

Agreed. I also thought it was weird. There have been unexciting Fridays that get maybe a comment or two, but I'm not sure if I can remember it ever being completely silent either.

It was an easy pass for me on these two titles. Next week, I "might" get Sky Force Anniversary.

I think next week will see a lot more activity.  Bit Trip already had an arguably better physical release on Wii and Screencheat seems very niche and possibly something that can get old fast.  I ordered copies of each though to keep my LRG collection going.

I just wasn't interested in either game.
