    Hotel dusk is cheap, last window not so much as it’s Europe only. Pretty much any sealed out of print game (PS2, DS, etc.) goes for ridiculous prices online (dunno who would buy but ok?)

    NX speculation: cartridge based (utilizing new flash/rom tech) console, hdd, shares cartridge slot with NX DS portable, 16nm APU w/ X1/PS4 performance at 40 watts power consumption, small form factor/iconic console design, multiple controller options including retro-based wireless controller and NXDS controller for console option. Major Amiibo functionality. NX console/ NX DS shared OS w/ cross platform software and app compatibility.

  • Huh. I hadn’t heard a few of those, Neo-east. I certainly wouldn’t mind if all of that came true. Anyway, thanks for listening and thanks for the comment!

  • Yeah, that doesn’t surprise me, I guess. Still, it’s not like people have to buy these games sealed or even “complete.” I wonder how pricey just cartridges of Last Window are these days…

  • taekk

    Nope, you must have money to burn if you’re buying a sealed copy of shadow hearts for $119.88 that somebody just kept in inventory unsealed all these years just for that plastic seal. Last Window used is actually not that rare, it’s just more expensive than hotel dusk. Certainly nothing like Ketsui for DS (or probably any shooter on DS for that matter).

  • Yeah, keeping sealed copies of games laying around just so you can (possibly) sell them later for big bucks seems weird to me. I buy games to play them, not to stockpile them as some sort of psuedo investment.

    That said, if people want to do this (hoard sealed copies of games) and not only not be able to play their games but also risk not being able to sell them for the high prices they desire, that’s their problem, not mine.

    BTW, I’m kind of shocked to hear that Last Window is cheaper than Hotel Dusk these days. Are you talking only about sealed copies of both games here, by the way, or both sealed and unsealed copies? Also, are you talking about Euro copies of Hotel Dusk, or North American ones?

    (Sorry for all of the questions. I’m just curious.)

    Finally, I love (not really) that during this podcast I once again referred to Last Window as LOST Window. Why can’t I get that through my thick skull? Arrrrrgh!!!

  • taekk

    I was saying last window is more expensive (about double) than hotel dusk but not crazy expensive in general. Ha, I didn’t even notice, my brain automatically heard “last”. Of course I’m talking used as I mentioned, seems silly to buy “new” copies that were sitting around sealed for years. You can find hotel dusk on ebay around $20 and last window around $35+.

  • Oh, duh, I read your earlier comment incorrectly. I saw “it’s just more expensive than Hotel Dusk” and thought you meant that copies of Last Window cost more than Hotel Dusk, when in fact you meant that copies of the former only cost a bit more than copies of the latter 🙂

  • taekk

    Yeah, I was just trying to say that sealed old games are not really reflective of actual value. I played Another Code and it was ok I guess. I just bought Last Bullet for super cheap on amazon.co.jp and I’m hoping is better.

    I wrote a bit about it on me bloggy, if you’re curious. Spoiler free.

  • Oh, yes, I’m well aware that just because an old game is sealed (or even just “complete”) and expensive, it doesn’t mean it’s actually worth what its owner is asking for it. I’m consistently amazed (not in a good way) by the ballsiness of some eBay sellers, for instance, who try to sell fairly common Japanese games–sealed or not–for exorbitant prices simply because they’re Japanese or old or complete or sealed or all of the above. Blech!

    As for Another Code, I’m definitely going to pick up a copy of it soon-ish, although all I care about at this point is that the copy is question is “complete.” Thankfully, complete copies of the NA/US version seem to be going for $10 to $15 on eBay at the moment, which is OK with me even if the game ends up being overly short.

    By the way, thanks for linking to your blog. You can count me as one of your followers from now on 🙂

    One last comment: Last Bullet? What’s that? A quick but of Googling suggests a FuRyu-made DS game. Is that what you’re talking about here?

  • taekk

    Yup, that’s the one. Just on the topic of adventure puzzle games for the DS, it was super cheap so figured it was worth a shot.

    Thanks for following my blog! I didn’t want to spam or nothing but figured it was on topic. BTW, will you be picking up Another Code R on the Wii?

  • Oh, it’s not spammy. Don’t worry about that. As for me and Another Code R: I don’t know. I guess I’m going to have to play the DS original first 🙂

  • i love when Anne said one is the “N” and the other is the “X” haha

    I don’t really remember what I was going to write but I enjoyed it and I found out that Bryan has a potty mouth 🙂 Will have to listen to it again as work has stressed out to much from my memory this week.
