Video Game Database Discussion / Digital Games in Physical Cases
« on: January 17, 2021, 11:34:16 am »
This may have been discussed before, but I couldn't find anything about it in the style guide, etc.

Right now, when there is a physical release of a product that does not include a physical of the game it is getting listed in the main physical section for that game.  The main example I have right now is the Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Box Set.  It's big and cool as hell, but only comes with a game code.  So my question is - does this truly belong in Switch (NA) category, or should it be in the eShop one?  Or even a bigger curveball, should it be in Swag or Accessories?  It's a 99% physical product, but if we treat it like we do games that come with accessories, maybe it should be in Digital, since that's what the primary product (the game code) is.

I think arguments could be made for each of these, but I wanted to see what everyone else thought.

Not sure if anyone else has been getting this, but it has been popping up on every visit to Vgcollect.com - be in the main site, collections, or the forum.

General / Amazon Luna Game Streaming Service
« on: September 24, 2020, 02:06:09 pm »
$5.99 a month.  Over 100 games a launch.  Alexa enabled / compatible controller.  Twitch integration.

And reports that they bought SEGA - but I can't confirm that anywhere. EDIT: Looks like the tweets I saw about it are gone.

$7.5 billion purchase price.  Guess they really wanted some exclusives.

So, I thought there was already one of these, but I couldn't find it.

Here is the link for Community Thread for the first game:
https://vgcollect.com/forum/index.php/topic,6488.msg98960.html#msg98960

With the release of the final major patch (details here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NABeP5oGygM) I am finally look at getting back into this game after only spending a little bit of time with it in the beginning.

The last patch has added a ton of interesting content, including World Maker!  I'm hoping to play some great new levels, as well as to actually finally make some with the new engine.

Please share Friend Codes and Level Codes here!

Video Game Database Discussion / Separate Steelbooks
« on: February 04, 2020, 07:25:59 am »
How should we handle steelbook editions where the Steelbook originally came separately, like through Best Buy?

Should the Steelbook get its own entry?  What if the game is now housed in the steelbook and the doesn't have original case?  A steelbook entry for the game?

I'm asking specifically for Mass Effect Andromeda, which does not have a steelbook entry in PS4.

Maybe I’m just not seeing it, but is there a way to see if submitted edits have been approved or rejected on the mobile site?

Off Topic / Do You Play Other Table Top or Card Games?
« on: November 12, 2019, 10:38:11 pm »
Magic: The Gathering?
D&D?
Cards Against Humanity?
LARP?

I used to run a D&D campaign, but my group kind of drifted and moved away.

I was also deep into a Commander League for Magic, but the ship closed down.

I’ve ordered the corebook for the newest Star Trek RPG and hope to get a playgroup started up with that for the beginning of next year.

Feel free discuss whatever you want here.  I am curious how many people host or join other games, how often, what kind of tools you use.

Video Game Deals, Sales and Promotions / Humble RPG Bundle
« on: September 04, 2019, 06:54:18 am »
The $1 level gets you

HIVESWAP: Act 1
Immortal Planet
Deep Sky Derelicts


Paying more than the average (which is $4.15 right now) is
Tyranny
Cat Quest

and the game that truly makes this bundle worth it
Pillars of Eternity

$15 or more also adds
Borderlands Game of the Year Edition

This is regularly like $5, which is probably why the average remains so low.  Seems like a really bad choice for the top tier in RPG month.

Modern Video Games / Any Mario Makers out there Making Marios?
« on: July 06, 2019, 12:47:10 am »
I've not made any stages for Mario Maker 2 yet - the Wii U gamepad coupled with the screen was perfect, while using the Switch doesn't feel quite right - but I am playing a ton of player made levels since I have completed story mode.

Any friend codes or level codes anyone is looking to share?

Is there a way to see more than just the 5 newest items in this feed?  If not, is that something that could be added as a feature?

General / What game do you have the most copies of, and why?
« on: April 20, 2019, 08:59:38 am »
I imagine the answer to the question for most people will be Super Mario Bros..  It's cheap, common, easy to get all on top of being a great game.

After looking into it I'm pretty sure my answer is Mega Man 2 .  I own it across five platforms, usually as part of some larger collection.

NES - Original Cart
NES Classic
Mega Man Anniversary Collection - GCN
Mega Man Legacy Collection - 3DS
Mega Man Legacy Collection - PS4
Mega Man Legacy Collection - PS4 Digital (this one was part of a Humble Bundle)

So that's 6 copies of this game.  Super Mario Bros. is number two, with at least 4 copies floating around here.
