    Nothing for Vita fans today, but three PS4 games are available: Pang Adventures, Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, and Astebreed. Looks like Astebreed is the most popular, as the first batch of that is already sold out, while there's still a little left of the other two. It's great to finally be getting some more Japanese games through LRG.

    Ray Gigant and Flinthook just went up for sale. The first batch is very nearly gone already, even with Ray Gigant being a standard price game. Take note that manufacturing of Flinthook has been delayed, so if you order it by itself or with Ray Gigant, you're gonna have to wait a few weeks to receive your package.

    I'm very happy to see Ray Gigant. That's not an indie, that's a full blown retail-worthy game. I guess that's why it's more.

    I'm looking forward to my order.

    I got a copy last night at 10PM CST when it came available. I had an email that stated there were 1000 left as of 2AM so I checked to see if they were still available as of 8AM and they were still able to get a copy. Probably sold out by now.

    This is the first I'm hearing about it (the game and Play-Asia's physical print run). Kinda weird that Eastasiasoft is basically doing the LRG thing (even announcing the size of the print run) but through Play-Asia, even though they have already released a few games through LRG. I guess when they went to do another physical print run of Soldner-X 2 through Play-Asia, they must've preferred that experience to working with LRG. Or maybe Play-Asia just asks for an even smaller cut of the profits.

    LRG is releasing Night Trap on the PS4. When I made the joke about shovelware coming from LRG, and saying that their releases are all over the place, this is what I'm talking about. LRG pretty much releases anything they can get their hands on, regardless of quality. It was pretty ingenious starting up LRG and announcing games with a predetermined number of units to the public with a number to each and every LRG title, and using your own games to start and get more money is a smart choice, so I can understand the games being poor then. But when there's over 50 LRG releases in less than two years and over half of them aren't good? It's clear as day they're grabbing whatever they can get as anyone with half a brain would know they're making some damn good profit each release. Would be nice if they went for less releases and released better games. I think they'd actually look like a solid publisher to the public honestly and get more of a following by releasing quality titles. Most people seem to have forgot about them or ignore their releases now because how often the releases are low quality.

    Night Trap was unique for its time, and when it comes to Sega CD FMV crap, it was one of the better games, but it's more of a piece of history than a good game.

    Why shouldn't they release whatever they can? Nobody is holding a gun to anybody's head, forcing them to buy every single LRG release. Let the consumers decide what they want and what they don't. Who's to say what's a quality game or not? No two people are going to have the exact same opinions on every game, let alone all gamers sharing the exact same opinions. Last thing I want is to be denied the opportunity to buy a physical version of a game I'd like to own just because one random individual decided it's not a good enough game. Anybody who knows anything at all about LRG realizes they're not a developer, and you shouldn't expect anything in common from one release to the next. You have to put in the research to know what you're getting and if it sounds appealing to you or not.

    Good game or not, there are a lot of people nostalgic about Night Trap and a lot of people who are excited to buy a physical copy for PS4. Myself, I'm not particularly interested in it, and I'm thinking about bowing out of buying LRG's PS4 releases in general after DariusBurst, unless there's something that comes along that I'm just dying to own. That's not because the quality or lack thereof of their PS4 releases; I just don't care much about collecting for PS4, and I already have more than I have time to play.

    Also, I recently played through both Octodad and Thomas Was Alone, two LRG releases that have reputations of being among the "worst" LRG releases, and I had fun with both. I don't think they have released very many stinkers. If you give a damn about pro scores, Metacritic backs that up. Most of LRG's releases have scored pretty decent, even better on average than the physical Vita releases coming out from other publishers, like NISA, IFI, Aksys, etc. Like I've always said, just about every LRG release has its fanbase. It's just that their releases are also very diverse, so unless someone has equally diverse tastes, most gamers are not going to be into some of the genres or types of games they've released (especially some of the more "controversial" genres, like visual novels and the games that people label as "walking simulators" and now we can add FMV games to that list). But that doesn't make them bad, and that doesn't mean LRG should narrow what they release to appeal to only one type of gamer while giving a big "fuck you" to everybody else.

    Yeah, I snagged a copy. That's one of my favortie Ouya games, so to get it physically was too tempting to ignore, even though I hate play-asia as their shipping rates to Canada are atrocious.

    The NightTrap HD remaster isn't shovelware. That was a high budget production for it's time and the crowdfunded remaster isn't being skimped over either. Also, people have a kitchy nostalgia for NightTrap - myself included. I'm looking forward to it and will buy a coph as long as it's not like $50 USD. Make it $24.99 like the others and I'll buy.

    As far as LRG releasing pretty much anything they can get their hands on, I don't see that as a problem. What's "good" is highly subjective, especially regarding niche genres like visual novels, otome games, sports simulators, and other non-mainstream genres that indie games tend to get into.

    The way I see it, if you aren't interested in what LRG is putting out in their next batch, then simply don't buy it. Nova 111 and Darius Burst will be out soon, and I'm not all that interested in either so I'm sitting this one out. Maybe next time will have games for me. If not, no big deal, I'll just wait until there's something I am interested in. I suggest you do that as well.

    I just tried to purchase the Dariusburst lmited edition. That thing sold out in less than 1 minute. Oh well, I guess I saved myself $100.

    On that note, man, would it be a dream come true if LRG could somehow do a physical run of Amnesia: Memories, considering IFI didn't see fit to do so.

    As for today's batch, I just grabbed a DariusBurst LE and a Vita copy of Nova-111. Darius is sold out until the 6pm ET batch goes up, but there's still some Nova-111 left.

    And with that, I may be done with LRG's PS4 releases. I wanna cut back on my spending a little, and the high price tag on the Darius LE is enough for me to be like "Okay, one last splurge and that's it". I honestly don't think the LE is a very good value. A whopping 40 extra bucks for just a box, a soundtrack, and a couple tiny plastic ships. But I adore Darius music and Zuntata as a whole, so if I loved hearing the music in-game, I could easily picture myself dropping $30 to import a retail OST. So that's how I justify it to myself, despite that soundtracks from LRG are usually only $15. Looking towards the future, Drive! Drive! Drive! is likely the next game LRG will release solely on PS4, and that seems like a decent point to break my LRG PS4 collection, as my interest in that is minimal. Likewise, I don't have any problem with the idea of passing on Tharsis and Night Trap. I still plan to get everything on Vita, though, as I love collecting for that system.

    Darius out?
    *sigh* That's not an indie game, though I guess the owners of that franchise have OTHER games they're worried about. :P

    More copies of both the LE and the standard release will be up at 6pm ET, so there's still another shot for those who weren't able to land a copy from the morning batch.

    Holy shit i was lucky!

    I worked today so I told my brother to pick it up for me. Sent him the funds. He told me that immediately when it appeared, he managed to get the LE version and the two versions of Nova 111. Checkout went through and he messaged me at work telling me that the games were gotten and paid for. He then refreshed the Darius LE page and was immediately sold out. That shit went faster than any of the previous releases!

    I knew this was going to happen. For some reason, people love Darius. Now if I can finally get a copy of their first release, Breach and Clear Vita...

    Don't know why the Night Trap release would be upsetting. I paid for the Mad Dog McCree Wii release happily. Clean videoversions of American Laser Games stuff sounds great to me. Not trying to say it's a great game, but I'm sure I'm not the only idiot who likes that stuff.

    The funny thing is that LRG said they got more tweets directed at them expressing excitement over the announcement of a physical PS4 print run of Night Trap than they got for almost every other release they've done. Clearly there are A LOT of people who don't see Night Trap as shovelware.

    I still like Night Trap to this day, and I think I will purchase a copy of it when it gets released. Maybe it isn't a great game, but I have a great amount of nostalgia when it comes to those old CD games. Even if it sits on my shelf unopened, I won't regret buying it.

    That's how I see it. I'm not a big Darius fan. I mean, they're okay. but I tend to like Konami or Irem shooters to the Taito ones.

    For anyone who missed registering for a "limited" PS4 Maldita Castilla, it's available now for pre-order at Play Asia. They did the same thing with the Blue Rider game they published. Had people sign up for the game like it's a limited edition to generate buzz and then a few weeks later it's up for sale on their website.
    Castilla is supposed to be an homage to Ghouls 'n Ghosts, as is the Battle Princess Madelyn game LRG is promising to have soon. I hope both are easier to play than Ghouls 'n Ghosts.

    Like I said at the end of what you quoted, it was one of the better FMV games, but everyone knew it wasn't really a good game. There are hundreds of better games more deserving of a remaster or remake, but a game like Night Trap is where the money is at. Everyone who's ever played or even heard of Night Trap knows it's one of those so bad it's good type of games(atleast some people seem to think so.) I've never been able to understand why, but people love to suffer through the shittiest movies of all time to get cool points, shit like Sharknado. The release of Night Trap HD is pretty much that. People are going to buy into it because making someone else rich off of a shitty movie that was recorded with a cell phone and then edited with special effects, or in this case an FMV game, is the cool thing to do.

    But let me just point out the trash that LRG has been releasing.

    Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae. Regardless how apologetic and how much you want to stand up for LRG releases and that if you don't like it just don't buy it, this game is clear of LRG willingness to just pick up anything they can get their hands on just to make a buck and you can be sure they're making a few grand profit if not more with this shitty release. Because of many people being caught up in owning every LRG release, many people were probably forced to buy this. I didn't, I've only bought 10 or less of their releases with a PS4 and Vita versions where applicable. But release a game clearly as bad as this one just because you can, just to put some extra money in your pocket. If you're unaware of this garbage game, take the brain dead Musou AI and add some broken DMC gameplay(broken as in able to take advantage of game mechanics and just overpower the already stupidly idiotic enemy more than you do from the start.) So LRG sings about how they're bringing physical games we want, and even if you ignore specific genres that you just might not like, even in genres you do enjoy, the majority of their crap is just plain average(or below average honestly.)

    And before Aussie jumps to their defense stating not everyone is going to like every single genre, etc, etc, etc. I like the genre enough to appear this high on leader boards for the same genre(pictured below.) It's just a shit game.





    Now some metacritic scores If your game scores lower than a 6/10 on metacritic, then you know it's bad(the above game scored 58.) However, journalists like to give indie devs hand jobs for being indie devs, scores are greatly exaggerated due to the indie revolution and many games that aren't even deserving of half their score many times get twice that. We'll take Rez Infinite for example, a game that scored an 78 back when it released on the PS2, but now that the dev is known as an indie dev and indie, indie, indie, the game has increated to 89. For comparison sake though, let's take a look at a few AAA games. The Last of Us scores the same despite having additional content, running 60fps rather than sub 30fps, native 1080p, and higher resolution textures. Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection doesn't even score as much as the original Uncharted did. Now it's not that the original Uncharted didn't age well, it didn't deserve it's score to begin with and hell if I know how it became a series in the first place, probably because everyone had a hard on over those graphics. Uncharted 2 and 3 are as still the same great games they were on the PS3 with higher framerate and running in 1080p, you'd think those games would increase the score. God of War 3 scored a 92 on the PS3 and the remaster an 81. I'm sure you get the idea by now. Indie games get their scores inflated all to hell for the simple fact that they're indie games. Rez isn't even a cheap indie game, but for most games, you pay $10 and you get a game that's eh, but you only spent $10 so here's an 8.5/10. I mean the bullshit concept of a game scoring higher because it's $1, $10, or $60? A game should be scored by the experience it provides, and if the so called shitty journalists want to make some statement to push a sale in the review, go ahead, but don't bloat the fucking score.. New word. Indieflation.

    You've got the Shantae games which I was interested in because I've heard these were amazing games or something similar to that. Both were below average if you ask me, both honestly bordering on whether I should even keep them in my collectiion. There are things I like about the games, but they're just not very good, a far cry from the amounts of praise you hear about them from the fans of the series. Mutant Mudds scored an 85 on metacritic. Yeah, and Super Princess Peach deserves a 75.... wait what the literal fuck? Super Princess Peach got a 75? Make a game that an infant can progress through no problem whatsoever game gets rated highly, pose any sort of challenge without a loud public fanbase, your game will get shit all over. Maybe in some alternate universe where literally every single journalist didn't suck balls at gaming.... scratch that.... maybe in some alternate universe where literally 99.9% of all gamers didn't suck balls at gaming, people would see some games like Prinny as classics eventually, but sadly we'll be seeing games like Mutant Mudds one day be looked on as a classic in gaming and gamers then will become shittier than they are now. Final Fantasy will have you doing nothing but hitting x(oh wait, it already does that. The future is now!!.) "I'm sorry to say that the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself" When talking about gaming skill, this quote is 100% fact, especially when a "gaming journalist" is involved. You play games for a damn living, you should be much better than people who barely have any time to play anymore.

    *edit*

    Either I'm naturally good at literally every single genre, or these people just don't try. I platinumed Slain Back From Hell, one of the trophies is finishing the game in a single life. I finished Hyper Light Drifter in a single life, all three boss rush difficulties, and new game plus. I finished five difficulties on Has-Been Heroes when most journalist reviews show gameplay from the very first difficulty. A lot of complaints going around about Stardew Valley's time mechanics. Within the first month I have level eight fishing and level six farming, three or four in the others. For a game that goes three years and I'm almost maxed within a month, are people not trying or are they just stupid? Not like I don't look like an ass already so I may as well come out with it, they're probably stupid.

    Why do you even care? Jealous, or just obsessive?

    That's their problem if they feel that way. No one is forced to buy anything. What about people who collect full system libraries? Is Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, etc. to blame if there's a single crappy game in the libraries of their systems? Should some random person working for those companies decide what's good and not and refuse to license any game they think sucks? Because apparently we're all too stupid to think for ourselves and make our own purchasing decisions?

    Just because somebody likes a genre, it doesn't mean they're going to like every game in that genre. It also doesn't mean that another person who likes that genre is going to like all the same games as the previous person and dislike all the same games as the previous person. There are plenty of people who like Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae and were happy to see it get a physical release. It also wasn't released solely to make more money. It was a critical step to getting the rights to do more Japanese games. LRG fans have been clamoring for more Japanese titles, so LRG gave them what they wanted and are trying to snowball things to getting bigger and bigger titles, such that we're now able to buy the likes of Ray Gigant and Ys Origin. Mitsurugi was also released simultaneously with Astebreed, which are both from Playism. While Mitsurugi has a so-so reception, Astebreed is quite highly regarded. For all we know, Playism may have refused to let LRG do Astebreed if they wouldn't also do Mitsurugi.

    A game doesn't have to be challenging to be good. Nor does a gamer have to be skilled to be allowed to play and enjoy games. Fuck that elitist nonsense.

    It's not about jumping to LRG's defense. I regularly criticize them myself. For example, I don't really like anything about this Special Reserve Games partnership, since it's just a way to squeeze more money out of variant collectors, rather than getting more games released physically. This is about your insane, meandering ranting that's nothing but elitism, of you thinking you can decide what LRG should and shouldn't release.

    I wouldn't say there's not some crappiness among professional reviewers, but could it be right to assume they have a large volume of games they have to play and don't have time to play them enough to get good at them?
    (that was what I thought after Hot Coffee and Hilary Clinton slamming ESRB for not finding it. A bit clueless since she doesn't know what a GameShark or AR or whatever name it goes by DOES, and true that ESRB only rates according to videos submitted by companies but I assume they wouldn't have time to play EVERY 100+ hour game that comes out even if they did regularly play the games themselves)
