Maybe it's just me, but this looks like a really half-assed remaster.  I spun up the PS2 version the other day and it didn't look that much different than this.

It's not a remaster, just making it compatible with 4K displays and small stuff like that.

Feels like it's overpriced compared to the PS2 on PS4 releases then.

Most definitely.  $29.99 is way too much for some slightly enhanced graphics and higher resolution.

I'm fine with a $30 price point for stuff like this (especially if physical).  It gives us a much better price point to start sales from versus the $50 or $60 a lot of ports end up like.   Modernizing it for current screens is a pretty big plus in my book as is he convenience of the switch hybrid platform.

Why do I get the feeling that this will be $29.99 and people will have no complaints and gobble it up. Meanwhile, complaining that Baldur's Gate: DA is $29.99 for being a straight port. ;P

Ah. But let Nintendo do it with one of their games at a higher price and it's fine.

Peeps, tomorrow "Calculator" gets released for the Nintendo Switch worldwide... >_>

It will cost £8.09 in UK.

I kid you not.

Still a bit high in price. Who wants to play Ghoul Patroll?

I don’t know but two for $15 is a really good deal.

Nope, you don't look like a fool.  Luckily they were just a little smarter than some.  But even then, it's sort of like paying $15 for Zombies Ate My Neighbors, because I'm not sure Ghoul Patrol is a big draw.

 

And also, you were correct that I will whine about Baldur's Gate: DA, but part of that is I have no interest in it.  Without some mechanics updates, it is going to feel very outdated indeed and was never particularly in-date.  It has a lot more competition now than it did then.

 

And I don't even care that much, so people who actually give a turd might even rail bitterly, and I don't blame them.  On the other hand, if they like the game, at least it exists.

 

And if the Zombies two-pack were a Square Super Famicom RPG two-pack of stuff that had never been released in the US before, I'd be grabbing it asap.  (And lets be real,  Sq-En would be charging $29.99 you predicted if not more)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors was pretty nice and makes a great co-op game. It's OK single player, but I wouldn't recommend it. I also agree Ghoul Patrol is not amazing, so the pack is main ZAMY. Will wait for a heavy discount unless I can get a co-op player about 100% of the time for it. It gets pretty hard too.

Wait, are they finally publishing the long awaited sequel, Zombies Ate My Yaks, where you play as the Dalai Lama?

I keep waiting for Spirit of Justice to drop below $10 but I guess that's not going to happen any time soon.

They always seem to go on sale for the exact same price.

Hey hey, if anyone is interested in Famicom Detective Club, I just bought both for the paltry $10 discount, wagering they'll never really go on sale much.

 

Therefore, I have guaranteed they WILL go on sale, possibly deeply, likely before I even play them.  You can thank me later.

Looking forward to an 80% discount with today’s store update.

Barring that, I predict a "summer sale" for 25% off or more, and a Christmas sale at 50%.  I'll make sure to whine both times.

 

I think I'll try to play them before they can go on sale.  That way I can be one of those annoying-ass people who is like "BOUGHT FULL PRICE TOTES WORTH IT BRO"

If they're doing the "buy one version and the other gets auto-discounted to make it $60 for both" thing, then it'll probably never get a sale like the Bayonetta games on Switch.
