I'm not gonna lie. This is probably the best news I've heard from LRG in a long time. I loved this game back in the day and just recently played through it on the PC. I'm very interested to see what the enhancements are going to be.

Snatcher for me is Kojima's finest work, that isn't MGS1, and I've sworn off his current offerings until he revisits it, as that new delivery service game he offered looks like ass(no offense to anyone who is enjoying it). LOL Snatcher is probably my most played game that isn't a platformer like Mario, were I'll play a few times over for kicks or 100%, Snatcher I'll play once a year just to experience all it has to offer. Nothing original overall, as it borrows from many popular movies and stories, but the music is some of the best, as is the voice over work in game. I would love to see a modern day take on this, as the investigation side of things could use a major overhaul but doubtful it ever happens, but one can dream.

 

I lucked up in getting my copies, as I started collecting Sega CD when the next gen was on the rise, so I got Snatcher from a gaming liquidator at the time for $30 if memory serves. I got my CDX new in box in the same manner for next to nothing, as the SEGA CD bombed, and back then no one was concerned with collecting, so I got tons of stuff cheap(online shopping was in it's infancy). Now that being said, I sold my 3 copies of Snatcher over the years in the $80-$100 range(1 opened, 2 sealed), and now I see the going rate and want to slap myself. LOL

 

So for those referring to loosing value now if a reprint is offered, what is my argument, as I sold mine before the value was crazy, do I now deserve to complain and get more money from those who bought my copies? I get that someone who buys a game for hundreds of dollars due to scarcity may not be happy that the same game may now lose value, but that's what happens. This can often happen in the reverse, as you may buy something cheap no one wants, only to have the value climb years later, are you going to sell that game off to some for what you paid for it? Of course not, but that's pretty much the argument being made for a reprint to not be offered.

 

Amen to all of this. I'm more of a Saturn collector than Sega CD, but in the last 2 years or so I have been getting more Sega CD stuff for my shelves. Snatcher is always one of those games I thought was interesting, but never played until about 12 years ago. I remember seeing game reviews for it in magazines way back in the day and I wish I had a Sega CD at the time because I probably would've enjoyed Snatcher back then. As of now....my 2020 resolution is to obtain a CIB copy for my collection.

2 people can only play comfortably on the NBA jam cabinet and that is only if they are on opposite teams with an empty player between them.  2 people on the same team isn't even possible unless you are like 10.

 

Look at the video here lol.

I can vouch for this. I just picked up the Turtles cabinet on sale yesterday and after setting it up and playing it with my wife for a little while it certainly is tight quarters for 2 average sized adults.

I wish the damned risers would drop in price at my local Wal-Mart. STACKS of them still sitting at $44.95 each.

 

Do you have access to some tools at home? You could buy 1 riser, get a sheet of plywood from a hardware store, and use the regular riser as a template to make your own risers from the plywood. Then just paint as needed or get some decals for whatever you want.

Sam’s literally stacked them in a 6 x 4 space in the middle of the walkway. Sam’s is like that though- Inventory seems to be transient and unpredictable. Costco is same.


I hate that because I'm 45 minutes from the closest Sam's, and the next closest is twice as far. I'd rather confirm they have some left before jumping in the car and heading over.
