#14145312 Limited Run Games Thread - The Switch is on!

Posted by adam81 on 20 March 2019 - 11:31 PM

Here's the thing though, increasing shipping speed likely means either increasing staffing and potentially increasing costs which will be passed on to the consumer or sharply reducing the volume of releases which means far fewer games will see a physical release.  Neither of those outcomes is great.  Regardless, bitching about it here will do nothing to change LRG's business practices, so if you have an issue with them, please reach out to them directly and stop derailing this thread.

 

 

This thread is supposedly a "Deals" one. It has never been a deals thread. 

 

The problem is YOU feel the need to respond to literally every criticism of LRG. Your constant quoting and defense of LRG is what derails more than anything.

I understand what your saying and I 100% agree. Every triple aaa publisher gets flak for dropping CEs for everything so why should LRG be any different? Now I dont mind them dropping them because like Ive said before with the CEs no steelbook, not for me but it seems to be more about the money and less about the fanbase. Most CEs sell out quick but the spelunky and KOF Ps4 CEs disagree with you lol. Those took forever to sell out.

 

Also the Spelunky CE for PS4 magically dropped from 79% to 28% overnight. LRG tends to do that when stuff isn't selling. Look at the fighting games from last week. I've seen it with a lot of other games as well. You know people aren't buying these in bulk as most LRG games don't go for shit anymore. They should just leave stuff until it sells out. Even now they want to create an artificial demand that doesn't exist for a lot of games.

These SNK games  should be in a compilation. Do the PS4 games have the same emulation as the PS2 compilation discs from a while back? How is the emulation in general?

They're probably taking every title possible so that other companies don't get a one up over them, I would imagine

 

Luckily, there are some good Indie games at retail that avoided the LRG tax and shipping costs.




#14120262 PSA: Original Wii Store Closing January 30th. Unused Wii Points Will Be For...

Posted by adam81 on 20 January 2019 - 07:03 AM

I wanted to download both LostWinds games but it says there are no titles by that name. Did they delete LostWinds from the Wii shop channel?  I am searching under WiiWare and even tried Virtual Console. Damn. Didn't know they would delete games.

 

You can get them on Steam. I bought both for $2.69 a couple of days ago. 




#14101706 Quantic Dream Collection PS4 39.99/31.99 GCU @Bestbuy

Posted by adam81 on 11 December 2018 - 06:48 AM

So many people on here saying how good these games are, but nobody can back it up by buying this collection to even see if it has 3 discs or mostly digital codes.....so much for "good" games.

 

It's 3 Discs.

An annual pass to an expansion of an expansion. Bungie and Activision can go Fuck themselves.

Does BB typically have all of their BF deals for elite early access?  I'm popping on a ps4 spidey and would very much like to avoid the lines, but I can't remember if the console deals were part of that in the past or not

Consoles aren't usually part of the Early Access. All the game deals should be live though.

Meh...it was posted by a guy who didn't have the self-awareness to realize his shirtless avatar photo was laughable, so I doubt many will give much thought to his attempts to troll.  

 

Maybe funny to you as you were the only one to comment on it multiple times. The pic was neck up.  

 

A few times I've posted something about LRG you either personal attack or come back with nothing. Either you're a LRG account or a blind supporter. 

 

Nothing factually wrong with what I said. If you think LRG is an honest, transparent company good for you....

We all know that LRG is dishonest, and just not a very reputable operation. Lot's of PR bullshit. We all know the problems. 

 

However, they are in the business of making as much money as possible and there's nothing wrong with that. If BB sells these at the same price it's good for consumers. Free shipping and GCU. Though mine expires in March.

The only thing I still trust about LRG is that I'll eventually get my shit.

 

- They are slowing down (false!)

- They are only releasing 1 or sometimes 2 Switch titles/month (false)

- They won't reproduce any of their games (false)

Don't forget when they said games would start coming in at a steady pace. I just got Slim San CE last Thursday. Cosmic Star Heroine I bought May 25th. SMRG was the same day I believe as well. Both are finally supposed to be shipping soon. I bought Late Shift August 10th. Pretty much every game is atleast 3 months out. 




#14056130 Playstation Classic Pre-order @BB, GS, Walmart, Amazon, & Target

Posted by adam81 on 21 September 2018 - 06:24 AM

Not sure if anyone did this before, but if you put a PS1 game into a CD player, you can listen to the music from the game. Jet Moto, Wipeout, Twisted Metal (Rob Zombie song) and Ridge Racer were my favorites.

 

A couple others are Rayman and Battle Arena Toshinden. Also PC games like Warcraft 2, Earthworm Jim, Quake, Hexen, and many others. Always annoyed me that more games didn't have redbook audio as PS1 had very few. 




#14054936 Neo Geo Mini Amazon Order is Live

Posted by adam81 on 19 September 2018 - 07:43 AM

I'd happily pay a premium price for a really high quaity Neo Geo box with accurate emulation and heavy duty controllers. Not this cheap garbage. Looks better than the Neo Geo X but that's not really saying much.

If you criticize Nintendo that means you don't own any Nintendo consoles and can't afford them??? Cheapassgamer logic......

 

 

Some Nintendo fans(like some here)  believe there is this "Nintendo Quality" that doesn't exist anywhere else. If you've been gaming since the 80s and played a lot different consoles and their libraries it could be argued that the best games on NES, SNES, N64 and GC weren't even made by Nintendo. 




#14036908 C64 mini preorders!

Posted by adam81 on 08 August 2018 - 06:45 PM

I remember the good old days of the c64.  Wake up in the morning, put in the word processor program (easy word). type in (load "*",8,1) get ready, have breakfast, go to school, get home from school, fix a snack, feed the dog and sit in front of the computer and still wait 10 minutes for it to finishing to load.

 

Pretty sure the average kid today woudn't even have the patience to load a Commodore 64 disk let alone deal with the command lines. Raid on Bungeling Bay probably took 20 minutes to load. That was the longest one.  Had a lot of cartridges and tons of copied discs.
