    They can call it a "bonus edition" all they want, but as far as I see it, it's no different from when they'd sell a regular bundle of a game and soundtrack. I'm just glad they backed out of two totally separate covers and having one exclusive to the more expensive set. They're finally listening to people fed up with all the variant nonsense, so now the Factotum cover is reversible. They're still doing the whole manufacture some with one side facing out and others with the other side facing out, to make sealed collectors double dip, but at least you can get either side by buying either version of the game, and sealed collectors can buy two of the standard edition to get one of each, rather than being forced to get the OST and other bonus items whether they want those or not.

    The one thing I find a little perplexing is why they're doing all this extra stuff for a game like Factotum to begin with. It doesn't seem like there's much hype for it at all. Same with Home. It seems like this coming Friday is just another day where they're trying to clear out their backlog of games that they probably would never sign at this point but are stuck releasing due to contracts signed when they were taking just about anything. I hear people are complaining about the price points too, though I don't have a problem there since I know nothing from LRG is gonna be lower than $25. But I have also heard that Home is super short, like 1-2 hours short, and for a game that seems fairly linear and story-based, I imagine there isn't much incentive to replay repeatedly. So I can understand why even the lowest price point of $25 may still seem too high for that.

    Weren't Factotum and Home announced on the list they released this past E3? I honestly still believe they're signing anything they can get, but that's just me.

    On the plus side, there's only a finite amount of games, so with every five or 10 playable games, we're bound to get an Ys Origin, Furi, etc.

    Factotum was announced then. I could've sworn Home was announced earlier, but maybe my memory is faulty.

    There's no question that they're passing on releases. They even cancelled some planned but unannounced releases and pointed the developers to LRG's competitors. 99Vidas was one where the developer approached LRG and LRG turned them down and suggested Strictly Limited Games.

    Got my blind boxes in over the weekend. I splurged and got 5, and all 5 were games that I didn't have already.

    -Risk of Rain
    -N++
    -Plague Road
    -Furi
    -Mutant Mudds: Super Challenge

    I actually used to have Risk of Rain, but sold it a while ago. I'll just leave that unopened and keep it on the shelf. Plague Road, I was curious to see why people thought it was so bad anyway. I played it for maybe an hour or so, and I can see people's frustration with it. N++ and Mutant Mudds are pretty decent an pretty challenging. Furi I don't know much about but seems to be the more sought after of the games I received. All in all I was happy with my blind box games. I actually wish I had ordered more, but I'll be visiting their booth at Pax East this year, so I'm sure I'll get more games.

    Owl Boy's physical release is coming out May 29th for PS4 and Switch. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is also getting a physical release for the PS4 and Switch some time this summer.

    I totally forgot about today! Proves how interested I am for these titles!

    I may check the six o'clock release. Maybe I won't forget again...

    I'm gonna have to hit the evening batch too. With being sick this week, my sleeping schedule got all screwed up, and I didn't feel like dragging myself out of bed for the morning batch. I don't know how fast the morning batch sold out, but I hope it wasn't extremely fast. I like going for the first batch since it leaves me the second batch as a safety net just in case something goes wrong, so it makes me a little nervous going straight for the second batch and not having that safety net. Granted, I don't expect these to have a lot of demand on the secondhand market, so it wouldn't be the worst thing if I'd have to buy on eBay later on.

    Okay, grabbed a Vita copy of each. Can't say I'm very excited about these releases either. I'm a lot more eager to try next week's offerings, Fallen Legion and Revenant Saga.

    Edit: Scratch that, next week is off now, Revenant Saga is on the 23rd with Oddworld: Munch's Odyssee (Vita) and The Metronomicon (PS4). Fallen Legion has been bumped to March. LRG really needs to get their acts together and make a solid schedule adequately far in advance instead of making and changing announcements with barely any notice. :/

    Another shitty Kemco RPG and then an incredibly stupid looking rhythm game. What's next? Life of Black Tiger?

    I personally have been looking forward to the inevitable announcement and sale of Revenant Saga. I'm more excited to buy Kemco's RPGs than most LRG releases. I hope we'll eventually get Dragon Sinker as well.

    I won't be buying The Metronomicon, but a rhythm game is one of my favorite releases from LRG (Deemo). I welcome more rhythm games from them.

    It's not that it's a rhythm game, in fact it looked a lot like Theatrhythm Final Fantasy gameplay wise which I liked. I'll give you the perfect comparison though. When your husband goes out to buy you a ring, what would you want? A diamond ring or a zirconia? However, in the case of Metronomicon, graphically, it's more like a diamond ring compared to one made of dog shit. The character designs, everything just looks stupid as crap. I'd honestly rather play that homebrew PSP rhythm game that's pretty much a ripoff of DDR.



    And obviously you know my opinion of those Kemco RPGs. "Most" RPGs are worse now than they were in the past yet the Kemco RPGs are even worse than those. The ring thing would work for Kemco RPGs as well, but obviously based on everything about them.

    I'm nearing 40 of those tickets LRG introduced as a loyalty program of sorts (still cross they didn't honor the oldest customers with tickets from games before they introduced the program).

    Has anyone already reached that mark here? I'm curious just how it works. I know they want you to physically mail them the tickets - so do you do that ahead of time when there's nothing on sale and they add some sort of credit to your account, or do they email you a code or....?

    Do you still have to pay shipping on a game you redeem with the tickets?

    What happens if there's two games that come out at once - does their system allow for one to be free and for you to pay for the other? It's all rather unclear to me.

    I have. However, since they are mixed with my brothers, I have no idea how to redeem them, since they said that they "know" which ticket belongs to who.

    Oh well.

    Still waiting for them to ship Sky Force. Still waiting for them to announce the pre-order date of Icey and Cosmic Star Heroine.

    I submitted 40 tickets in anticipation of a variant that never came out (Night Trap 32X). They basically sent me an e-mail confirming receipt of the tickets and telling me that when something is announced that I want, I should just e-mail customer service and one will be put aside for me. They don't send a code or anything that you have to enter. It's a manual process handled through customer service in advance of a release date.

    I have Night Trap for the Sega CD. It's barely playable. The video is small and grainy, and the gameplay is somewhat confusing. It has nostalgiac value for a time when FMV games were a thing and it had the campy 80's horror movie thing going for it but beyond that it's a broken mess.

    Yeah I have the LRG version of Night Trap and it's much better than the Sega CD version but that's just like saying one pile of turd smells less foul than the other. I got it just for the historical aspect of the game. Same reason I have a copy of ET on Atari 2600 but don't own an Atari 2600.

    I heard the 3DO version was the best.

    Same here. Night Crap was obviously very hyped up simply because it was such a bad game being rereleased, went in seconds on LRG. I was able to submit a ticket when they posted if any were interested in getting a copy and the only reason I did so was because of the hype and rarity. I usually don't include bad games in my collection, the reason why the original version isn't there.

    You've really got to wonder why a lot of these developers decide to choose certain games to make or build their games with certain stuff in mind. It's like, are you trying to get less sales? I mean atleast put out something people are interested in, like another remake of Snatcher. Or a remake of Popful Mail, Dark Wizard, something good. But what did we get? Night Trap.

    Old FMV games are becoming popular again, mainly because crappy B movies are becoming popular for the mainstream crowd to watch. So many terrible films are getting released on DVD and Bluray that otherwise should have died out years ago. Like why is The Room so popular now?

    It's easy for developers to re-release old FMV games, all that's really involved is to release the existing footage in a higher resolution and people will buy it. Plus these old games have less than an hour's worth of footage so it doesn't take long compared to remaking an actual real playable game that has real content. Plus crappy games are usually cheaper to license.

    I'll admit to owning a few FMV games myself including Night Trap on the Sega CD but I haven't really played them for any length of time.

    Today is the day for Revenant Saga (PS4 & Vita), Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD (Vita, both standard and CE), and The Metronomicon (PS4). I grabbed a Oddworld CE and a Vita Revenant Saga myself. Oddworld sold out ridiculously fast, so anyone who still wants that is going to have to wait for the second batch. Still some stock of everything else, though.
