CAVE Games / Re: ESP.Ra.De PS4/Switch port [M2/Atlus/CAVE: 12/19/2019]

The digital download version is only 4500 yen, compared to the regular physical edition at 6800 yen and the LE at 9800 yen. I always buy these PS4 STG ports digitally, so I really appreciate the cheaper digital price. It makes it so much easier to start up a quick credit or two instead of swapping discs in and out.

Also, the physical versions will come with the game on a disc (PS4) or cart (Switch). Not a download card.

Arcade plus mode will include newly recorded voices, and a new (more expanded) script, written by Joker Jun:

Of course, the original voices will be available as well.

@brentsg: I think their next CAVE port will be Ibara + Ibara Kuro (they have dropped too many hints about this over the past year). But we might get a Raizing port before that!

CAVE Games / Re: How do you display or store your arcade artwork?
« Last post by brentsg on August 09, 2019, 05:48:00 PM »
I have all of my Neo MVS boxes and bubble wrap broken down and stored in a huge Rubbermaid container in storage.  The associated artwork is stored in long flat Rubbermade containers with the game carts.. under a bed.  That allows it to be stored flat (for stickers).  I even separated the games and art into smoking and non-smoking containers.   :laugh:

A lot of my Cave boxes are stored in a large plastic unit with drawers.  Each unit only holds 16 kits or so.. so eventually I ran out of room and started stacking them in the top of my office closet.  I didn't like how the move strips were stored bent so I bought the largest hardback book I could find (it's like 3 feet tall) to protect these and keep them flat.  I used something safe as padding between the book paper and artwork .. don't remember what at this point.

I don't have that much other arcade art.. some Raizing stuff in the original boxes.  I have NOS art for Ms. Pac/Galaga Class of '81 that I snagged just in case mine got damaged.  That's just stored flat and taking up a ton of space.  I have rolled posters coming out my rear..  no idea what's even in the tubes at this point.

I have a ton of Caves reproduction artwork sets from their festivals.  That's all stored separately on a shelf, not mixed with the originals.  I didn't want to be in violation if Skykid ever visited the States.

So yeah.. nothing displayed.  I even have one of the DOJ framed prints signed by Joker Jun that isn't displayed.. need to sell that.

CAVE Games / Re: Mushihimesama Futari Black Label "ANOTHER VERSION"[Cave 2009, PCB]

I'm doing some casual reading and I noticed that this topic popped up again.. and I always enjoy it.

I was reminded of my discussion with Joey Tang (Excellent HK) back on January 29, 2010 so I have been going back through messages.  Here are a couple of interesting bits:

In regard to whether Legend had returned existing JPN Futari BL stock to Cave to be reprogrammed, this was the response:  "Yes, now all of the pcb is upgraded and back, so we sell "real" stock." 

For context I was asking whether they had the games in stock so I think "real stock" is sloppy English for "in stock".

In regard to whether they could source the original Japanese version at that time:  "we contact Cave and they told us that if we need old or new version, the answer must be new one"

I used to have some discussion with Fannie but it's long gone.  Of course all of this is ancient history now so I think the only remaining mystery is why I own both versions of Futari Black Label but I sold 1.5.
