#13189642 Humble Megathread - Ubisoft Bundle - Focus Home Weekly - Public Radio Audio...

Posted by Doomstink on 05 February 2016 - 04:33 PM

I don't think anyone has a problem now that you explained it, I just think the original concept - that it was replacing one of the 6 monthly games - was what had everyone riled up.  

Makes sense and I totally figured that was the case. I could absolutely understand that.

Just for reference, my tweet about the development time wasn't to imply a lack of faith or confidence in our game - it was to set proper expectations because it's not something to be played for hours and hours. It's a full game, but it doesn't have a huge breadth of content.


Since Humble hasn't explained this original game stuff at all yet (and it seems like they should have), you should all be aware that this is a BONUS game on top of the six games you're already expecting. If people are going to complain and stamp their feet (and cancel their subscriptions) over a freebie on top of what is already a great deal - I don't know what to say. It's people like that who are responsible for things like Club Nintendo going away. Even if you don't like it, or want it at all, it's free. Delete it and empty your recycle bin - move on. It didn't cost anything so who cares?

You lucky son of a gun! Dark Alliance II still brings around $40 used. Good score. :D Very nice haul!

Jurassic Park Operation Genesis is there too and that's worth a lot right now. I'm pretty jealous! It's been a long time since I've found anything decent at a thrift.

Krikzz is actually a designer of the carts he sells. So he is not just a clone seller. There are those who use his designs to sell on Aliexpress. So it is the other way around. Not sure about Stone Age Gamer.

I had no idea there was an official manufacturer of these - I'll rescind my statement, the person who created the designs certainly deserves any markup they can get.

I love BJ's deals because all the blowjob jokes always hide the actual deals people find and I'm always able to make out like a bandit. Their $10 clearance a few years ago was incredible and no one really knew it was happening because the thread for it was just blowjob joke piled on top of blowjob joke.

I'm skeptical these will remain sold out as they are SE and not LE.

I'm mainly holding on to both in case GS says I pre ordered the in store copy too late and thus they ran out. I know I pre ordered the one online very shortly after they went up so I feel safe there. We'll see

People tried to make the same distinction for Bravely Default (it was a "Collector's" edition and not a "Limited" edition). Publishers don't choose the wording on these with any real reasoning.

Just look at all the "Limited Edition" games out there that are completely worthless (Bulletstorm, Dead Space 2+3, Dante's Inferno, etc.). It's a meaningless distinction unless a publisher announces print numbers.

Ok, I guess the fact that GameStop ran out so quickly maybe does point to this being kinda rare.

Most of the time Nintendo collector's editions are legitimately rare - look at Bravely Default and Majora's Mask. I don't really gamble on these things anymore, if Nintendo announces a limited edition, I preorder just in case, even if I don't 100% want it yet.

Technically you're getting one game.  Nintendo being the scumbags they are, are selling the three stories as two different games and a DLC or a single overpriced game bundle.


Fire Emblem the Sacred Stones has two different storylines with the option to play through as Ephraim and Erika.  It's not like I had to purchase two different games to play that. 


Hopefully this doesn't catch on.  Just think if developers in the past did this.  We'd be purchasing seven different games to play through SaGa Frontier, two games for Kartia, two games for Mega Man X4, two games for Nightmare Creatures, two games for Threads of Fate, two games for Vanguard Bandits, two games for every Warcraft RTS game(base games only so it'd have had expansions for each separate campaign,) three games for Tactics Ogre(plus a bunch of DLC for all the side quests,) etc, etc, etc.  You get the idea.


It's Nintendo though, so it's okay.  Just like it's okay that they've got a lot of disc locked content that isn't cosmetic behind a paywall called Amiibo.  $12.99 for some disc locked content.  Thanks Nintendo!

Every Pokemon game ever.

Zelda Oracle of Ages/Seasons.

Mega Man Battle Network series.

Mega Man Star Force series.


If this was going to catch on and be a thing, it already would have. Nintendo (and other developers) have been doing this for nearly twenty years. I don't know how this is the first time you've encountered it.

So is this a pre-order, or a we're-shipping-them-immediately order?

We're starting to pack orders after lunch today. :)

The stock bar plug-in we're using only lets us do three levels of stock, so the ranges ended up pretty odd. The bar behind the text reflects the current levels, though.

I'm kind of shocked that you guys are surprised at the lack of lines. Amiibo aren't hard to get anymore. Long lines hours before opening are a thing of the past.

#12964303 PS Vita Deals & Discussions Thread

Posted by Doomstink on 12 October 2015 - 04:45 AM

What is there to discuss? We know exactly what will happen. Original Xbox embodied everything naysayers said about losing digital games years ago.

This. Anyone who bought DLC or XBLA games on an OG Xbox lost them forever back in like 2006/2007. Granted there wasn't much to lose - but I think it's kind of unreasonable to believe Xbox Live won't shutter 360 service within the next two decades.

The argument about licenses is moot when I can buy a PS Vita, leave it offline, pop in a cart and have it work. Sony has no ability to stop me from doing that. On the other hand - 20 years down the road if I buy a Vita and try to install old PSN purchases... that's probably not going to work out so well. If I had a cart in that same scenario it's much more likely that I'll be able to play that game.

Also, unlike digital games physical games give me the right to sell and trade my game. I can't do that with a digital game. Even if I only have a license to the physical version's software, at least I have recourse to transfer that license.

Awesome; thanks for the heads up Doomstink.  I will be trying like hell to make sure I can get a physical copy of Breach & Clear (and your follow-ups) to support what you are trying to do.  As a former mom-n-pop buy/sell/trade game store owner, I am 100% anti-digital copy and all of the anti-ownership BS that comes with that model.  I wish you nothing but the wildest success.

Thanks! After seeing game after game get delisted from XBLA and PSN - I just can't get behind paying for licenses. I want actual ownership over my games.


I'm glad to be providing an avenue for digital games to go physical and hope that I'll be able to get a lot of devs behind it. If Indiebox's success in attracting devs is any indication we shouldn't have too much trouble.

Where will Breach and Clear be up for pre-order?

www.limitedrungames.com and it will be available on the 29th and ship out the following day.

To confirm, we have made many fixes to the game. Text size is increased across the board, default difficulty has been raised, and stability and bugs have been addressed to whatever degree possible. If you found the core ideas behind the gameplay boring, your opinion is probably not going to change. It's a hybrid turn-based game - you tell your guys where to move and look. They take care of the shooting. If you found it too easy before, we've played with the difficulty a lot.

A patch is coming to the digital version. - we're working on getting it through Sony's certification.

To explain why Breach & Clear got a physical release - it's pretty simple. I've wanted to start Limited Run Games for a long time but in order to do so (and convince other devs to come onboard) I needed to prove that A) this was a viable business and B) I could handle taking a game from digital to physical.

I understand the game is not for everyone and that's why the print run is so small. It's a proof of concept for the entirety of Limited Run Games. If we could have released a more exciting game first, we definitely would have - but we have to prove it out first.

Saturday Morning RPG will be our next release after B&C. CAGs won't have to worry too much about keeping up with our releases as I'll be posting about them.

I'm not going to take my chances on waiting for the shipping fix - I'll just call and get my order adjusted later.
