Not sure if mentioned yet but a UK company called Super Rare Games popped up with their first Switch limited game. It's Human: Fall Flat with 5000 copies for £24.99.

Thank goodness I'm not a fan of the game and am resisting anything but games I'm hyped for on the Switch.

Lol, 5k, good luck

Also be warned that their currency conversion plug-in is way off.  They claim the game is $35 US, but they charge in GBP and at today's rates, it's about $42, not including the shipping which takes it to over $50 US.

Holy shit, super rare at 5000 copies? Are these "limited" game places even trying anymore? Is this name the best they could come up with, and then on top of it, offer 5000 copies of a game like this.

 

I don't see much hope for these guys long term, as they have no idea what "super rare" is, as it damn sure ain't 5000. The game has pretty solid reviews I guess for what it is, but I still don't see 5000 hammering down the door to get a copy, especially when there's 5000 to choose from.

"Super Rare Games"  lmao

 

Awesome derivative company.  Did a 10-year-old come up with that name?

 

If I was LRG I would be so annoyed with all these derivatives.  They won't publicly say so, but I'd still be annoyed.  Any way you slice it, it's causing waning interest in these products.  In any case, it's probably good for us as consumers because now everyone has to step it up a notch.

bummer, someone else mentioned theirs getting cancelled too. I tweeted the devs but haven't seen a response and they don't seem to be super active short of tracking down a personal account or something

LRG is just as guilty smashing this limited release idea into the ground; they are probably the greediest in the game.

Bring on the competition. Maybe one of them will release a game I want. So far, only SLG has released something I would want besides LRG.

only have the switch version ordered, is it amazon exclusive in NA? don't seem to see it on any other retailers

I'm not sure. It's being handled by Merge Games (the Signature Edition people), so I wouldn't put it beyond them to make it exclusive to their store.

I feel like market saturation is hitting critical mass, and these companies aren't particularly customer-friendly. Easy pass for me, but I feel bad for those trapped in the "must buy rare games" mindset; it's a vicious cycle.

Same here. No clue why.

You do know that the "limited" in LRG refers to each release being limited, and not the releases in general right? If they released 10 games a month, with the limits being in the few thousand range, each game is still very much "limited".

 

As far as that so called "greed" goes, they have been cancelling tons of games, so that guys like you are happy. Which IMO is just about the dumbest shit they ever did, as the ones with issues, will just trade one problem for another. The crying/bitching from that group will never end, so I honestly don't see the need in trying to stop it to begin with, but to each his own I suppose.

Cheapass Rare Games

Who wants a copy of Bubsy for PS4? Less than 500 sold I'm guessing. Get them before a rumor starts that they were buried in the desert.

Haven't heard anything in awhile, was bummed when the collectors edition was just a download code

Yeah, this was a perfect example of a company just having "no clue".

 

I completely understand not releasing a physical game for a franchise where you have no idea that fans will return to or not. After so many years of Sonic games that where mostly on the bottom end of garbage, that was probably the best way to go honestly.

 

But on the other hand, you release a CE with some cool items, but no physical game. This is another concept that I've heard explained over the years, but don't really follow. As the companies in question say it makes the bundle cheaper to offer no game, but no true collector is of that mind set. So it's still kinda of confusing as to why some of this stuff is done, as it defies any sound logic, but so is life I suppose.

Coming soon, Signature Shitty Shovelware!

 

50 copies per game, and get this.. not one.. not two.. but THREE alternate cover art for each game. We'll sell the least shitty cover art version at PAX and then put 10 copies up on our site for those that miss out.

 

We'll also include trading cards. You've got a 5% chance of not getting one that's poop stained. For our collectors editions all but 5 copies will come with ACTUAL poop. Don't worry though, we know you won't open it so you'll never have to see/smell the poop.

Well, if nothing else, Super Rare Games has a HUGE pair(brass balls), as this seems a pipe dream at best.

I think that's just their way of a polite response, or to give people false hope so they keep checking future releases. They probably thought it was better than flat out saying "no" lol. If capcom wanted those games to have physical releases, they'd produce them themselves.

Yeah, I agree 100% with you on that. As saying there's no hope(which was the correct answer to give), would have pretty much shown how mickey mouse they are. But to say "we can see what we can do", leaves a glimmer of hope for those poor bastards out there who don't know any better. LOL

So....copy LRGs model, then get butt-hurt when a pre-existing LRG ad gets search engine priority over your new company. Not impressed.

Herein lies another motivation behind the founding of Super Rare Games: the chance for Perkins and his collector friends to "fix some of the mistakes" they believe are made by the likes of Limited Run Games, Special Reserve Games et al.

"Our competitors are just trying to sign as much content as possible, whereas we're being much more picky, looking for the very best games that we've played, we've loved and we want to see [as part of this collection]," he says.

"We're trying to create the highest quality products available. Simple things like having pretty box art, having this gorgeous thing you can put on your shelf - I think that's something that's lacking from other competitors."

So, Human: Fall Flat is supposed to be some awesome game then?  Right.  It looks worse than about 80% of LRG's offerings and will have a hard time selling 2000 copies, let alone 5000.  Glad its a European release so I am not obligated to buy this garbage.
