Can you just sum it up for me? Asking me to watch 50minutes of a 60minute video is kind of a lot.



To me... LRG (and others like them) are glorified reproduction houses. they take other peoples works and reproduce it in their own packaging. Especially with retro stuff like the NES, SNES and N64 carts. i mean bootlegs is what they used to be called but they some how manage to make it seem legit (if its even legit) under the guise of producing stuff that is no longer in print. They will also take something that was digital and turn it into physical. If the company that created it wanted it in physical then they certainly have the means to get them produced themselves. some places dont want to so they release their wares digitally.

If a game wasnt officially released to retail in physical by the dev/pub... then i dont buy the reproduction that LRG makes. i will stick to buying it digitally.

I thought the same thing... but I ended up watching the whole thing. It's very interesting and informative.

Short version: they are a bunch of scammers that try to paint themselves as some sort of guardians of the gaming legacy.

About 20 minutes in. Yeah it's a good video I'm hooked.

They basically make shitty games. They don't get the right to sell them digitally on the playstation. So they aren't allowed to sell physical versions. Which makes those physical versions "unbuyable".

They have a friend hype them up as the most rare game possible. And suddenly have people wanting to but these shitty games simply because they are "rare".

Then they go into why it isn't game preservation if you need to patch them, leave out dlc, or change the content.
Followed by how they scam people by making different cases, different colors etc to try to make people afraid they are missing out.

Great voice, informative and interesting so far. I'm going to keep going.



You are bound to love Earthbound.

They also are in-part responsible for the inflation of the physical market in some cases. They obviously want to put certain groups into FOMO mode so they sell their stock easily.

Well I watched the full video.

All I will say is trading card collecting makes LRG look like saints lol.



 

 

So the take away is limited run games is trash.

They lie about if something is "limited". The shipping takes a long, long time. You have to pay money if you want a "box" instead of flimsy packaging. You can't combine copies that aren't ordered at the same time. They don't give a damn if your packaging or games are dented.

They lie about anything. They will say a game is in English then delete the tweet. They will say "physical disk" and include a steam code instead.



You are bound to love Earthbound.

If you want something that's actually well done and superior to them, just go with Iam8Bit instead. They've done great for the few releases I got from them (Ori duology and Disco Elysium)
