Agreed. It really sucks for the Vita games that are having issues. Vita cart production has ended, so there's nothing other than patches that can remedy the issues. What's the point of preserving a game if it has crippling bugs that don't allow the user to finish it? Also, releasing physical games that require updates to be downloaded goes against the whole idea of preserving games in physical form for a time in which servers that house the games and updates are closed down. When it comes to Game Tengoku, it's plain and simple false advertising for LRG to say that the purchase price includes specified DLC on disc, then leave some of it off. Consumers paid for something that was promised, but didn't receive it. Offering the DLC as a download in the future is not a good resolution at all. If indeed the Homura ship was left off the disc then LRG needs to make things right by making sure each customer receives a disc that includes what was promised.

 

Given the collectible nature of LRG's games combined with the small print runs, I am assuming many of the releases do not get played by a large number of people. I wonder if there are undiscovered glitches in other games.

I agree on all counts, a big part of why I buy these physical releases of games I enjoy is the preservationist mindset (and that's also something LRG likes to tout as well). It bums me out when I pop in one of these titles and see patches still getting pulled down, or hear about issues with other games people have purchased.

 

Your last point is something I was thinking about last night as well...I'm curious how many issues like this might not be noticed until a while down the road. I know I'm personally guilty of buying these titles and not opening them in the case where I already have a digital copy and I'm double-dipping on a physical (which is probably like half the time). Game Tengoku I didn't own digitally and I was excited to check it out, which is why I came across the issue. I've bought a decent amount of stuff from LRG, and this is the first time I feel actively cheated, like you said, it feels like false advertising in this case.

 

I triple checked regarding the Homura ship, to make sure I wasn't going crazy, but there is a very specific menu option in the game where you can see what DLC is available, and it definitely shows Homura as locked (the character even does a little monologue to convince you to buy it), and when you go to play arcade mode, it's not selectable. The Clarice DLC ship is available though, as well as being able to activate the voice pack DLC, so 2 of the 3 DLCs are there.

Reminds me of their release of the first Seralim, the game is literally unplayable from the disc because it has a massive bug that loses your saves after only a few hours of play. There's a patch for it, but the disc is basically useless.

 

 

Also, I'm pretty sure the Vita version of Night Trap is still unbeatable because of bugs. 

Man, that sucks to hear about these other issues with some of the other LRG game releases. I feel like there should be better quality control for what we are paying for these copies...sorta sours me a bit on the whole thing.

This isn't related to the E3 announcements, but I just got my standard edition copy of Game Tengoku CruisinMix Special in the mail today from LRG and popped it in to play, turns out only 2 of the 3 promised pieces of DLC are on the disc, which I'm a bit upset about (especially since it is $9.99 to buy separately, and it being on disc was part of the appeal)

 

As per the product listing, this version is supposed to have have Clarice, Homura, and the voice pack DLC on disc, turns out Homura is not unlocked. I don't think the CE versions of this game have gone out - I know there was a little bit of scuttlebutt because that version has an exclusive 4th DLC (Tatsujin) - but I'm curious if that version has all the DLC it is supposed to...it must be a different printing, presumably, if it has different on disc DLC.

 

The game has been printed already, so I guess nothing can be done, just felt like I've been lied to on this one. Seems like a pretty big mistake to make.

 

 

Like you said, it's probably too late for anything to be done, but I'd suggest tweeting about it and let LRG know.

That's probably the most reasonable course of action...I'm a old man (slightly exaggerating :P) who doesn't care for social media, so I don't actually have a Twitter account. But if someone else happens to see my post and wants to tweet on my behalf, feel free, I wouldn't mind. (And I'm sure someone else other than me who is Twitter-savvy will probably notice the same issue with their copy of the game and complain at some point anyways...guessing I was just the first person to actually open their copy and play it, haha).

How do you get the return window so long?

I have Elite, so that gave me a 30 day return window. I bought the game like Friday of launch week, so when I called, I was still within the return window.
