Is anyone actually interested in a box full of crap like that? Should be one of the Paris accord goals, stop all this ****. I have also grown to really detest this "limited" stuff. There really are too many games to even bother with it.

I don't mind the limited print runs, the alternative is digital only and that's not nice.

id get over limited print runs ,but open the preorders and let that determine the no rather than have a limited amount to sell i know some do this but not all and yes id prefer physical over digital every bloody time. unless its a mainly online game which i wouldnt buy anyway !

Cheaper than I expected. Go on then. Regular NSW, Chrimbo present to me.

No idea why I’d want collectibles for something I’ve never played, let alone have any idea if I’m a fan. 🤷🏻‍♂️

All of the limited run publishers seem to do pretty well on price, although postage does tend to be a bit of a dampener.

Customs processing fees are the irritating part.

how bad could it be that it failed a location test ! have they seen some of the crap that got released into arcades !
It wasn't necessarily a bad game. The timing was certainly bad. It would have released early 1994, during the fighting game craze.

A good arcade game is also one that makes money to ops. Platformers are difficult genre in that regards. Make it too easy and the player gets too much playtime over one credit, make it too hard and the player will not likely put another credit in it.
Also, this was Sega. They probably couldn’t be arsed even if it did ‘okay’. This would have been a tiny sideline compared to the arcade stuff they were releasing at the time.

Well, I don't know. Sega released a ton of stuff that bombed during that time. Aquario was just a case of bad luck. It happens.

It's also perfectly possible that it's a dreadful game. We'll see.

WB3 Monster Lair was pretty terrible to be honest but I still remember being excited about playing it. Westone have a charm.
