Because it's a very old game that's been bundled or cheap everywhere?


Physically? Isn't that the whole point of these threads?

Well yeah, but I feel some of the value comes from not having a low value game physically for a higher price that is 12 years old, but that's just my thinking. I mean cool if you really want some plastic, though I do like steelbooks.

For me, value comes much more from the quality of the game itself rather than what the publisher charges for it digitally. A great game that I'll likely still want to play years into the future is worth buying physically no matter how cheap I can get it otherwise. I'm not super interested in the resale value of my games. I mean it's nice and all, but in order to access that value you need to actually sell them and selling them is work.

Anyone played Sisters Royale? It's got such middling reviews online that I decided to grab it digitally to try before the sale today. That... is not a very good shmup. It screams low quality at every junction.

Everything I've read about is well.....its a game. Not a terrible one but not a very good one either. I'll get it digitally one day when there is a sale going on but that's it. From what I've seen of it there are too many other games I'm more interested in to worry about this one.

Cat Quest and Cat Quest 2 Pawsome Bundle is up for preorder a BB, if you still have GCU and were waiting for it to show up there.

 

Hell Warders and Black Future '88 are also up for preorder at BB now too if you were waiting for those.

Read about the game's history, and you'll see why.

I don't want to ruin anything. I watched a short video and liked what I saw. So I'll give it a shot.

 

Always on the look out for games like this. I'm getting tired of bigger mainstream games, and indie games with retro graphics. Hard to find a good medium ground.

It's only peripherally related, but Analogue is doing a final run of their NT-mini console. This will likely be the last time it is produced. Anyone interested will probably want to get a pre-order in quickly.

 

Sadly, it is still being sold for $500. As much as I salivate over that thing, I just can't push myself to spend that much. I already acquired a Super NT and a Mega SG without spending that much. (and the Pocket is due out sometime this year as well) As much as I want an NT-mini, it's just out of my range.

 

For those in a similar situation to me, there will most likely be other options in the future. While we are getting this final NT-mini production, there are rumors that Analogue will release a new NES-focused console sometime in the future that mimics what has been done with the Super NT and Mega SG. (and would presumably be more affordable, as those consoles are) One of the biggest actual draws of the original NT-mini is actually the Famicom data port on the back. That's a feature that probably wouldn't show up in future versions, and allows the NT-mini to be fully compatible with all import Japanese famicom hardware. (like the Famicom Disk System) Missing out on this re-release will likely mean missing out on that feature.

 

Thankfully, the analog support of the NT-mini has already been supplanted by the DAC adapter. So Super NT and Mega SG owners can now use Super Scopes or Menacers with their legacy light-gun games, and can do so without breaking the bank.

I can't justify $500 for an NES, but the NT mini looks lovely!

It's an extremely attractive system, with clean, industrial design. And it is basically the new gold-standard for retro reproductions. It has everything from a Famicom-Disk-System port to analog video output. (for light gun games) It can literally play any and all NES and Famicom titles without fail. It even has a microphone port for supporting Famicom games that required the built-in microphone on the original controller. (like the original FDS-version of the Legend of Zelda)

 

This is retro 8-bit gaming with zero compromises. I have their subsequent Super NES and Genesis repros, and I can say from personal experience that their FPGA approach is second to none. It gives you the best visuals, the best audio, and the best customization, hands down. The only thing keeping me from leaping on this thing is the price tag. As enthusiastic as I am, $500 is too rich for my blood. I'm hoping we get a plastic 8-bit version of this down the line. I already have the DAC they released, and it is compatible with both their subsequent systems, so I can still get a sizable amount of functionality.

Anyone have experience with Super Rare's customer service? I ordered Steamworld from them but got sent Smoke and Sacrifice instead. I sent off an email already, just wondering if they're usually pretty good about fixing this stuff or if they'll try to charge me for return shipping or restocking or anything like that.

It's the same price at GameStop right now and I was able to get the last copy at a nearby store.

I canceled my Amazon one and got it at gs this weekend. It's pretty fun and definitely funny! I'm glad I found a copy!

Got my Vasara order for SRG yesterday.  It came with an acrylic? (not sure of the material) art card that wasn't originally mentioned under the contents, which was a nice bonus.

I got PS4 UltraCore from SLG and it was opened not sealed. I sent them a ticket and they replied they're were many PS4 copies that left unsealed/new. Then why ship them! Do they not have packing QC?

My PS4 Ultracore came sealed two weeks ago.

My PS4 Ultracore CE wasn't sealed. Not a big deal as I was going to open anyway. Switch version was sealed but both coasters or whatever are very scratched up.

Yea, that's what I figured since I also got an extra postcard apologizing for the delay and stuff.  It's still a decent thing to offer, especially if you consider that LRG would've likely done nothing, but tweet an apology and Josh responding to some responses justifying the delay.
