Part two is looking to be a little weird in that I would think that anyone who cares probably already has Dariusburst on pc or ps4 (unless there's new content...).

However, it would be awesome for newcomers if they keep the $60 price point. You'd be getting G for $10... Unfortunately, that same $60 price point would scare most newcomers off.

I was browsing the eshop yesterday and a handful of roms for FIFTY NINE US DOLLARS AND NINETY NINE CENTS?

Thats a bit much. The Taito Collections on PS2 were $20 new?

Hearteningly, G-Darius looks largely unchanged here. (It hasn't been shoehorned into a different aspect ratio, at least.)

Yup, it looks just like an upscaled version of it with some kind of filter applied on it?? :?
The word laziness as reach a new meaning.
So if they wanted to focus on 3d titles they could have throw in al the Darius Burts saga but they have to milk it.

I'll hold off on lazy till I know what exactly is offered. Mind you, no arcade-accurate port of G-Darius yet exists. Plus with save states, replays, widgets, etc. this won't be some Digital Eclipse shitjob.

^Exact same feeling. There's nothing lazy about a fully featured HD port of G Darius. That's like saying M2's ESP. Ra. De. port is lazy and overpriced. Even if that was the only thing they announced I'd be happy with it.

And I'm betting there will be more announcements to come, especially with regards to the inevitable limited edition.

Strictly Limited Collector's Edition with a 1:1 replica of Eclipse Eye? I'm in.

Are they ever going to ship these stupid things to the States? Come July, I'll bet they'll be saying August/September. This is the only bad thing about dealing with these types of companies. They get your money way in advance and take their time manufacturing stuff. I still want to buy Space Invaders from them but this makes me think twice.

Japan or bust... My Japanese edition was even eventually updated to have English menu text.

This isn't even a case of manufacturing though. That's done since they've shipped this to EU orders. This is them claiming they picked a different shipping method for the states and just not shipping shit out even though they have it on hand.

I've seen pics on Twitter of the standard editions already, so I'm hoping SLG gets off their collective butts and starts shipping the LE's soon.

sick-grabbers always get tricked and swindled; see: Dispatch games, entire history of.
Don't be fooled by the allure of special sashimi plates...

Right they've started shipping the LE and regular editions of the games, just not to anyone in the US. Even though they have it all on hand.

I'm in the UK. Still waiting for my regular arcade collection to dispatch too, despite purchasing during the first batch of preorders. I think LRG has just been a little haphazard in shipping out orders rather than it being a continent-specific issue.

Yeah, I've heard of a few others in the UK receiving their LEs but I haven't had an email about it yet, so things are certainly a hit uneven. No biggie - things are still moving a lot faster than I could reasonably expect...

Just in case try and view your order on https://store.strictlylimitedgames.com or the email you got when you did the preorder. If it has been sent they have added the tracking # there.
