Not judging, just curious, but does anyone actually like Game Paradise? The retro arcade aesthetic is great, but the game itself is a frustrating and unbalanced mess imho.

Yep, I think it's a lot of fun.

And you'd think companies would realize that partnering with a group that consistently mishandles things is a bad look. Falcom realized that with NISA and made them apology for the Ys VIII localization debacle.

That's cool and all. But there's still the subject of this thread to consider. As far as I've seen, nothing has moved forward with it at all (other than a screenshot of a half-completed translation)

I think we can assume Dispatch Games needs the money from additional sales of Game Tengoku before they can move on Radirgy Swag.

These companies have helped curb my desire for physical games. I've tied up 100s of dollars with these flimsy businesses, always waiting for months (sometimes years) past their advertised release dates.

Radirgy Swag Pre-Order customers - We are reviewing orders and preparing the download codes. There is a process for us to go through, so please stay tuned for additional updates. It take a little time to sort through and get the e-mails prepared.


Doesn't there, y'know, need to be a digital version before you send out codes to download it? Or are they sending out codes for the Japanese version?

If you have a final build that's passed cert, it's not impossible to give away codes before release day - that's how press copies and things like IGF work. It's also ESRB-rated now - not sure how recent that is? So I guess it's possible they might be coming up on release and may be giving preorder customers a code before the official release. Or they might just release it instead of holding it back for the day the physical version maybe probably never comes out.

If they have a final build that's passed cert and ready to go live, that's the lede at this point. People have been waiting for three years. Not "we'll be sending out some codes some time eventually probably"

We're now creeping up on November and those copies of Game Paradise that were all ready to be shipped at the end of August remain unseen.

I'd seen that Play Asia has a listing for Dispatch's Radirgy Swag, it had shown an Oct release date as well, but now TBA.
I wonder if Dispatch got PlayAsia to pay upfront for a chunk of the production run (would it even work like that?) - but then just gambled or snorted that money away.
What has been going on with Dispatch Games?! inquiring minds want to know - there's some ridiculous story behind all of this.

Unsurprisingly, the only concrete progress they've shown lately has been the physical bonuses - coins, etc. Last comment on Game Paradise was two weeks ago, saying that they're in the assembly process for standard editions. (How long does that take? I have no idea but it seems really slow for such a small run.) https://twitter.com/DispatchGames/statu ... 0128337924

Where'd this coin thing come from anyway? Is anyone really passionate about that or is it just some kind of extra they figured no one else was doing?

I'm really not sure. Nippon Ichi has just started to put coins in all their LEs too. My guess: a place that does them cheap was discovered. Like, real cheap.

I've been wondering who on earth wants those coins.
First Press Games sends them with their games and they are actually somewhat large heavy metal coins. All I could think is "how stupid" and "how much does this add to their shipping fees?"
PC Engine Works was the first I encountered the insipid coins, they've been doing it for quite a few years.

Bubblegum Crisis' KS included one, but it is really nice. (Has Largo and Priss on each side)
