"Low-print-run or recently-discontinued games?" , posted Thu 2 Mar 12:37post reply

So, I've kinda been out of the loop as to which games have had low print runs, or which games had their manufacturing recently ceased.

I remember hearing that Castlevania Chronicles would be getting a low run (was it 30,000 copies?) -- and so I picked one up as soon as I could. I've tried doing that since with games that would have low runs.

But, I only recently heard that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for DS was getting hard to find -- for pretty much the same reason. Prices have been high on eBay as a result. And yeah, I haven't had any success yet in finding a local store with copy. I didn't keep up, as I was waiting for the NDS redesign -- and I might end up paying more for it a result.

Now I'm also hearing that Trauma Center and Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow have also been getting hard to find. Thing is -- Google searches only seem to bring up forum discussions, nothing concrete. If it's true, though, there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about Trauma Center -- but there are still copies of CV:DoS at my local EBX that I can grab.

So -- how exactly do folks here keep up with what's low-run, what's discontinued -- all that -- aside from just trying to keep up with forums?

After running around town checking every game shop in town this past january, I had to scour Ebay for a copy of Gundam v.s Zeta gundam for PS2. It was worth it though.

there's a company that's re-releasing a lot of these games, like disgaea, ninja 5-0, etc. Conveniently, I forget the name!

All right -- so I took the bait and bought CV:DoS while I was out getting the Metal Gear Saga Vol. 1 DVD from EBX.

(Watch Dawn of Sorrow hit $20 in the next few months now!)

YES.

Is the English version dubbed? That would reduce the appeal somewhat.

I would apreciate if you could tell me about the contents and your thoughts on the Metal Gear Saga Vol. 1. Dude, they screwed it in Europe. They are going to bundle that DVD with the PLATINUM edition (that's greatest hits in Europe) of MGS3, instead of giving it away preordering subsistance! As much as I love the Metal Gear games, I'm not going to buy the same game 3 times! I'm quite pissed about this...

Edit: Thanks Ishmael for that URL! Now I can finally get my hands on my beloved Double Dragon Advance!

Edit2: Oh shit, they don't seem to ship items outside of the States... -_-U

Actually, yes, unfortunately it is dubbed. However I will say that the dubbing for Zeta is better than for the original 0079. But still atrocious...

They have Jojo's Bizarre Adventure for DC but... it's sold out.

Phoenix Wright DS is getting a European release on March 30th, I'm going to France from March 28 to April 11, so I'll finally pick up a copy of the game there... At least, I won't pay the 70 $ plus shipping you find on ebay for it...
Just find a UK game dealer on the web and import it.





Blah!

NCSX also seems to talk about another production late March -- I'm assuming this must be it.

Is there still a place to get a copy of Chronicles within a reasonable budget? Like, less than thirty bucks? (Considering it was released at twenty...)
