About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Sigh. I’ll try to get a physical edition. If not successful I’ll get the digital version. Limited Run seriously need some competition.

      LR has competition now – play-asia is a notable example. I am already prepped for disappointment as this is one of their popular releases, and I know how these have gone in the past. This will be nice to have but will get the digital version if necessary. I always enjoy the salt that comes from LR releases though it could be pretty entertaining.

      If you are trying for a physical version be sure to be there right when the game goes up as they sell out extremely quickly – within minutes for popular releases like this. Have an account set up in advance. Also, everyone will swarm the collectors edition bundles so the regular editions you have a better shot at getting.

      Play-Asia have more or less the same business model. I’d prefer something like Signature Edition Games where they collect the preorder numbers and make the prints based on those.

      “I always enjoy the salt that comes from LR releases though it could be pretty entertaining.” – I don’t – it’s a terrible business practice that’s bad for the consumer.

      As you said those races to get a copy are extremely exploitable by snipers, who generally don’t care about the game.

      I’ll give it a shot, but as usual with LRG I’ll keep my expectations of success low.
