I'm assuming you will be adding them later then since you are already down to the "T's" in your initial list and missed on a bunch of them (Octodad, Breach and Clear, etc)?  I'm also guessing you'll get to listing Retro City Rampage as well?

 

Great idea for a thread and thanks for taking the time to do it! Will be handy as I try to complete my collection.

 

Sounds like you are only listing current systems, right?  Original DS probably won't be considered a current system but it has a number of limited and hard-to-get physical games such as Diamond Trust of London, Electroplankton,  and the old Club Nintendo exclusives (Game and Watch Collection, Game and Watch Collection 2), to name a few.

Yea... I'll get to the LRG titles. I actually have a couple different lists I'm compiling from and I decided to do one at a time instead of going across each list one letter at a time.

Might be better if people just hold off on naming games until I finish listing all I have. I'll update the OP to reflect that.

As for DS games... I'll look into them after I get a bit more done with the current gen and thread formatting.

Would Shadow of the Beast qualify? It's only available from Asian sites like YesAsia and Play-Asia, but it's a full English release. I'll include a link below:

Well then you're going to have a lot more games to add that are "Asian/English" releases, including titles like Alienation and Fat Princess Adventures.

Absolutely.

In my opinion, the scope of this proposed thread is too broad.  I think it would be more useful to just limit it to US releases of these types of niche titles as adding UK, European and Asian English releases is going to quickly spiral into the hundreds of titles and make it hard to track the niche US stuff that's coming out.

I have every intention of doing so.

No. That would completely defeat the purpose of the thread, which is to inform collectors of the existence of physical titles. It doesn't matter what region they're from. As long as they're in English and playable on an American console, they're worth knowing about. If it gets over a hundred titles, then so be it. Hell, the more the better.

Just make good use of spoiler tags.

Would it be possible to add the region or regions to the game list? Something like this: ABZÛ
[PS4] [XBOne] [US]

I was thinking about it. I'm currently reformatting the listings I have done.

I might move the regions under the platforms or something.

 

Still a whole lot I've got to do, so just bear with me while I get things done. Might take a bit, but it'll get done.

Keep up the good work, I'm really digging this thread.  Then again, my wallet is hating you...

I'm more concerned with the accuracy of the list being maintained and the fact that anything that might be time sensitive like LRG or other games with a short or non-existent preorder window will be lost in the shuffle.  Also, how far back will this go?  Will PS3, Xbox 360 and other older platforms that still see a trickle of games overseas count?  Does a game have to be region free to qualify?

The first post will have a separate list for upcoming games and pre-orders. Games will need to be either NTSC-U region or region free and in English to qualify. PS3 and Xbox 360 games will be added. You can't really go further back from them because digital didn't exist before them.

 

Down the line, I may make a third list which lists region-locked games for collectors who are interested in those and own consoles for those specific regions... but that's not a concern right now.

As a collector; may I just say-- this is the best thread ever.  If you put some dates in there and links to various sites...I'll be living on ramen for the rest of the year!  This is amaze-balls.  Thank you!

Wow, this is quite ambitious of you! I hope you stick with it, though, because it's an awesome idea. I'll definitely be checking in from time to time. Good job! <Encouragement +1>

Wish Lumo would show up on Amazon one of these days like the dev said it would.

They have msrp $29.99 so it's $23.99 even though it should be $15.99 after Prime. Looks like Amazon needs fix this issue.

What kind of information would you guys like to see in the body of each game's listing? Currently there is the developer, publisher, regions and special notes. I'm going to add links to where you can buy each game.

 

Anything else?

It's really strange all around. Best Buy has it listed for $29.99, and Gamestop has it $29.99 crossed out and $19.99.

 

It's like the MSRP is $29.99 but they're launching with it $10 off, which doesn't really make sense. And ruins the extra 20% off at Amazon I was waiting for.

Why put PAL stuff in there like Lucius and animia?

 

Why put stuff in like mighty no 9? Not exactly obscure or limited at all. Any game thats sold at lamestop, bestbuy, meijer, walmart, target and amazon isnt really limited or obscure at all.

 

Half of that wiki post could be carved out. I dont like all the images being spoilered either because that helps give me an idea of if I want to look at something and Im not going to click on every single spoiler tag to see if it strikes my fancy.

 

You dont even have links to places where you can order the games.

 

Nothing has a description which is odd since you seem to be making a dictionary of just random games and not really doing anything for deals or good prices which makes me wonder why this is in the deals section.

 

I like the other thread we already had going.

 

Honestly we would have better results just going to amazon, finding a smaller named game, clicking on it and then look at the "you might also like" results showing similar games.

Because they're region free.

 

"Why put stuff in like mighty no 9? Not exactly obscure or limited at all."

 

It's a "smaller" indie title that makes it on principle.

 

"Half of that wiki post could be carved out. I dont like all the images being spoilered either because that helps give me an idea of if I want to look at something and Im not going to click on every single spoiler tag to see if it strikes my fancy."

 

Sucks to be you. The list is already going to be massive. I'm not unspoilering the images to increase its size by a factor of 10 because you're too lazy to click a button.

 

"You dont even have links to places where you can order the games."

 

I've said, multiple times, that these will be added.

 

"Nothing has a description which is odd since you seem to be making a dictionary of just random games and not really doing anything for deals or good prices which makes me wonder why this is in the deals section."

 

First, they're not random games. Second, you want me to post a description of every game? This already takes a lot of time to do. Go look shit up. Stop being fuckin' lazy. Third, as stated in the original post, this is a place for people to identify that these games exist and to post deals regarding them.

 

"I like the other thread we already had going."

You're free to Fuck right off to it.

 

"Honestly we would have better results just going to amazon, finding a smaller named game, clicking on it and then look at the "you might also like" results showing similar games."

 

Many people have already said that this thread has helped them and I'm not anywhere near done with it. So, by all means, if you have a better resource, use it.

Updated the list with all (I think I got them all) currently released LRG titles and a few upcoming ones. I'll have to revisit their forum to find any upcoming titles.

 

Almost done with my part of the "master list". I have a few more things to comb through, then I'll start working on the first post and adding games that people point out.

Personally as someone who follows the 'other' threads, I'm all fore this one.  The more info out there the better.  Not every thread catches every single little thing.  Hell I didn't even know Lucius had a physical release anywhere til this thread.  Yeah it's still a little rough, but that goes for anything that still a work in progress.  Bottom line is the OP is taking time and energy out of his schedule to do this and I fore one thank him for it.
