No. It’s not a remaster or remake or even a port. LRG are predators and market manipulators. They’re preying on your nostalgia with the hopes that you’ll pay top dollar for the most “premium” version of their release by creating a false sense of scarcity. All of this just so people can own a “new” physical copy of a disc or cartridge running a few games on an emulator.

The whole point is that you're buying a collector's item. You're not buying an LRG release because they're your primary storefront for the latest games.

I think you misunderstand what LRG is.

Thinking it’s dumb =/= misunderstanding

The 2D game is pretty fun, imo

Eh. LRG puts out dumb stuff all the time, but they’re not forcing anyone to buy their $200 Bill & Ted limited edition with stickers, soundtrack, and SteelBook or whatever. It’s not a company’s responsibility to sell you less stuff.

If you just want an easy way to play certain games on your Switch or PS4, they can be an easy way of doing so if you no longer have the console in question or if the market rate for original cartridges or discs has priced you out.

They also occasionally put out the first Western licensed version of certain Japanese games on original media, which I think is pretty worthwhile and something they should do more of. Provided they aren’t just CD-Rs.

No one needs to buy every random thing they put out.

I have never found the Gex series to be “exciting,” even when it was new. Gex was always a shallow also-ran mascot in the time when everyone was trying to recapture that lightning in a bottle without understanding how it actually worked, and desperately trying to recreate what Sonic and Earthworm Jim and to a lesser extent Toejam and Earl had.

He was marginally less annoying than Bubsy. That’s about all I can say about Gex.

If I really decide to play some sub-par 90’s platforming stuffed with stilted and dated TV and movie references, my 3DO still works. Yes, really…

Never have the mushrooms at Chris Pratt’s Christmas party.

It’s like Christmas at Jackie Chan’s house!

I think the most fun I’ve ever had with Gex is watching Dunkey’s videos making fun of it lol

I’ll get it for cheap at some point when it goes on sale. I remember playing 2 and liking it. But also that it felt kind of like a fever dream.

Wait was that a gameplay trailer? I kept waiting for it to do the thing where it switched from footage from the original source to footage from the collection and it never did. If all this collection is is someone packaging up some roms with absolutely zero changes then fuck that and fuck them.
