Thought I'd start up a dedicated thread for those interested in limited release games. Limited Run Games made a big announcement today -- they're approved to release Switch games starting in 2018!

I see some mixed emotions with these limited releases -- it seems most people like them and their mission of preserving games physically...until they're unable to snag a game they've been waiting for (Night Trap from LRG is the biggest recent example). What are everyone's thoughts? Is there a way to please everyone or are companies like LRG doomed to piss off a lot of people?

It's better than nothing. The limited hype aspect probably makes games sell better than they would otherwise. Half their games are yesteryear budget indie games that you can get nearly free in Humble Bundles or Steam Sales. Mutant Mudds certainly wouldn't have sold 12,000 physical copies if they just put it out there and said "Hey you can pay $30 for this game now if you want, I guess".

When they put out games that aren't available, an order of magnitude cheaper, or better on PC, I'm onboard. I'm hoping for lots of Switch exclusives.

Agreed completely. Personally I only order the games I want to open and play -- I feel sorry for the guys who feel compelled to buy every single release because they have a complete collection going. And then keep them all on their shelf, sealed. That's really the only reason LRG can keep pumping out lower quality indie titles and sell out instantly -- which is unfortunate, because it lowers their standards. But then they release higher quality, in-demand games like Night Trap and Wonderboy and get a ton of backlash from those who couldn't snag a copy. Tough situation they're in, but their business model as a whole is definitely profitable.

Let's hope the Switch games are all on the higher quality end of the spectrum. Golf Story would be glorious.

LRG's biggest problem is lack of business acumen. They are trying to learn as they go and certainly have made some improvements but mostly they need someone with some business sense to at least advise them if not direct them outright. There is no reason to recreate the wheel here, especially how fast they have grown and potential they have. No excuse for the self created problems, limited (ha) mindset and decision making woes.

Aside from foundational issues being a root problem, I appreciate the service they provide. Vita is my interest and I've purchased more than half their releases in the past. I don't think they are all bad but I do fear for the end result moving forward. My personal thoughts are that the Switch games will be $10 higher than Vita or PS4, probably $40 but it could come in at $35 if they think it more lines up with Vita pricing.

Hopefully they do focus on exclusives, that'd certainly be the way to go in my opinion. I'd also like to see some other games that "could" come to the Switch in the future, like Ghost Blade HD or Undertale. It doesn't have to be a AAA title, just a quality game that's worth the cost. Not looking for more of the same with just tossing up physical copies of any old free to play game out there simply because they can. We'll see though, I'm glad they got the go ahead but I'm hoping decision and implementation changes are also coming along with that moving forward.

Anyone follow Special Reserve Games? A couple updates worth noting:

- Absolver Limited Run variant cover went live (and sold out) this morning - anyone snag one?
- They won't be producing a Ruiner PS4 version because the ESRB wants a ton of money to rate the game (now a requirement for all physical games as of August). I guess their fee is based on each game's budget. Brutal!

I didn't want to go anywhere near Absolver, since (correct me if I'm wrong) it's an online game, and NOT part of the LRG main series...kind of like Lawbreakers is online.

But now Absolver is selling for alot because of the variant. Oh well, not in it for profit necessarily.

Yeah I was hesitant too because of that, but gave in and bought it at the last second. I think it does have a single player mode, but it's not very robust. Will probably give it a go when it arrives and sell ASAP if it doesn't resonate (as I'm sure the value will go down over time).

I appreciate, and at the same time, hate Limited Run Games. On one hand, I'm fudging tired of seeing "Limited Edition" stuff being put out by big companies that don't actually limit them, yet include a fudging numbered certificate of authenticity as if it truly is limited. On theother hand, I don't think LRG puts out enough games in quantities that are feasible for anyone to get ahold of other than craphead resellers who immediately flip it with an insanely inflated price.

Honestly, I don't want to undermine the "limited" aspect of anything, but it would be nice if they had certain runs with a made-to-order preorder cap (say essentially, we'll only make as many as are pre-ordered to a maximum of 50,000 etc.) with 1 per person order limits. Obviously let the makers of the game limit it further as wanted by them like if someone only wanted 5000 made or whatever. Something other than just every game only having a few thousand, released at a certain time and letting the sharks run rampant on it.

I don't own a single LRG release because I'm not available at any of the times they sell them, don't care for the Black Friday mentality of waiting for the moment it releases and praying my connection is good enough to snag one, and none of the games are important enough to me to cop out $100+ for a copy when I can just get the digital one for a fraction.

Anyone pick up La Mulana and Nex Machina this morning? Mulana went super quick, but it seems the collector's editions aren't quite as popular -- at $65 I think they're overpriced for what you get.

Grabbed just the standard versions myself -- super pumped to play Nex!

I was a sucker for the CE's again. LRG had posted a while ago that La Mulana Ex CE is the nicest one they have put out yet. I liked that they came with soundtracks and some nice art. I agree though, at $65 they are probably overpriced but I didn't want to miss out!

I have no Vita and no interest in LRG's overpriced CEs anymore. I was on the fence with Nex Machina, but it seems like a game that will be in a humble bundle and a game that would really benefit from high refresh rate. Saving my money for future releases, especially the inevitable deluge of LRG Switch games I'm going to buy.

I grabbed both Nex Machina and La Mulana, mostly because they both get really good reviews and include nice single player games.

I think I'm going to be much pickier about what LRG games I spring for. I'll do more research on them and make a decision vs. simply buying EVERY single one.

I've said it many times before, and I'll say it again. I think limited time makes more sense than limited quantity. Make it available for one day and then never again (with the possible exception of a small brick and mortar stock on release date).

You are probably right yes I guess they get around this by making it available at two different times, 8 hours apart. "Most" people can get online one of these times...but yeah, it's not fair for everyone.

But then again, we're talking about being able to purchase video games as not being fair raspberry

I think so -- they've hinted that the Vita version has been delayed (ESRB or waiting for a patch maybe?). When VA-11 HALL-A is finally released it will go super quick, especially the Vita version.

Yeah, it looks sort of Shovel Knight-ish. Only 2000 copies too.

They're also releasing a few leftover copies of recent games throughout the day, but only 30-40 of each. They'll go quick, especially Night Trap.

Sometimes they have more expensive (digital price) games. Sometimes they're only $25. Charging $30 for a game that sells for $8 is silly. They're probably using the ESRB as an excuse.

They generally have said prices are $15 above retail or $24.99, whichever is higher. But I think with the new ESRB requirements they've had to up the prices by $5.

Fudge that guy. LRG kept everyone updated the best they could during the whole ordeal. It's not their fault the developer ran into issues. This game was also not limited so LRG would be left with extra stock if they were to refund people. Once people start threatening with lawsuits is when I also stop giving a crap about them.

Front page, but they removed them as soon as they sold out (so they were up for maybe a couple minutes each). You had to watch their Twitter to know when they posted a new one. But the rarest ones (Breach and Clear, etc) weren't announced, so some guys spent all day refreshing. But still weren't successful. Yikes!

So Windjammers has a chase collectible like that glow in the dark Street Fighter II cart. Is this a more common thing with modern LEs? 1/5 chance to get a pink frisbee, whoop de doo. As cool as the box is, I'm passing on a $35 licensed frisbee and just getting the PS4 game. It's a better LE than many they've had though.

I'd be surprised if they sell quickly since you can get a physical bundle of both games new on either Wii U or PS4 for $15 easily, and half that digitally. They have good reviews but they "feel" like bargain games you could buy elsewhere at any time, the same reason the POS Night Trap sells instantly and critically acclaimed N++ stuck around for days.

But I know nothing about PS Vita. The crazy people buying every $30 Vita release still could prove easily prove me wrong.

Good price dunno001. I think Gunworld 2 sold out quick due to the relatively low print run. I'm trying to decide if Windjammers is worth buying the CE or if I should stick to standard. If I go standard I'll probably buy Claire as well due to the low print (2500). I've bought the last few CEs and kind of regret it due to their high prices and not much resale value(most specifically the Ys Origin CE). Knowing my luck if I pass on the CE of Windjammers it will become super expensive though lol!

Sure, feel free to send it. I think they said it doesn't ship until late December, though. It falls under my normal rules of LRG games- I usually pick up an extra to help someone out who missed it. Sure, I could've priced it at $45 and handily beaten eBay prices, but I'd rather get the games into hands of people who want them for a fair price.

I am actually missing the PS4 version of Broken Age. It doesn't sell for much, but I was busy the day it came out, and missed that one. I do have the Vita version (and an extra of it, even), but...

I would also, if you have an extra of those, be amenable to modifying the trade to a 1-for-1 swap.

Not LRG but i figured i'd post it anyway. iam8bit is releasing a physical version of What Remains of Edith Finch for the PS4. I know they aren't a popular outfit, but i got the physical release of Hyper Light Drifer from them and it's by far the best packaged limited release i own. Here's a link for anyone interested:

If you guys want a really limited game you can get NES Tower Defense 1990: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1075045484/to...

I guarantee it sells fewer copies than the rarest LRG game laughing out loud

Ooooooooooooh!!! Nice. Did you grab this one? I'm tempted, and it's supposed to be a good game too.

Are they limited, and will sell out? Should I hurry to get it or do they usually make enough for all preorders? I don't see on that page where it says an amount of copies.

I relented and picked up 2 regulars and an LE. Usually I just buy what I need. If WJ is a popular game, I'll sell the regulars to finance the LE. Otherwise I'll be happy getting rid of the others at cost, which I imagine they'll be at least worth.

It took like 15 minutes for everything to sell out so I don't think you'll have trouble in the afternoon

I shake my head at every retro release that sells out slower than Night Trap. Although at this point with their constant stream of mediocre to okay indie releases, it's probably because interest in LRG is lower in general.

What time does it go on sale in the evening. I'm conducting interviews all morning so I just have a few breaks today.

Went for a CE and SE of PS4 Windjammers and a PS4 Claire. Also got Eideth Finch. These limited games are getting out of hand though, I need to cure my addiction before I go broke!

I think I'm going to go for a CE Windjammers and a t-shirt while I'm paying for shipping.

Windjammers is the only game I remember people coming up to me in the arcade to randomly challenge me, and a game I'm equally happy playing against the CPU or a human. I never play fighting games and in dance games I'm usually playing doubles. I love the somewhat recent popularity of the game (is it Giant Bomb related?). It's easy to find opponents at a convention.

I don't really know anything about Giant Bomb. Personally, I think the MAME has probably helped a lot of people discover Windjammers. It's often on hidden gems lists, plus I think people just like games they can play socially.

I went just for the regular Windjammers this morning; looked up video of Claire and it looks very similar to Lone Survivor (which I already have), but with worse reviews. And international shipping costs for the Windjammers CE is insane -- $25 US. I guess they had to bump it up because of the weight of the frisbee?

Also grabbed Edith Finch -- looks phenomenal!
