Batch 3 [stand by] remaining Kraut Buster AES (2nd print) in Q2 2022

Has anyone had their Kraut Buster AES shipped to them from Batch 3? It is now Q3 and I am still waiting.....

emailed them today and a few months back to ask for an update. I received the exact same answer, template based - so keep patient, this will happen sometime in 2022, however keep in mind that in december they might delay it one, two or three more years, who knows... changing delivery dates without informing the customers is a classic in this company.

the remaining Kraut Buster AES orders are scheduled to ship in 2022. A
shipping date will be announced once ready.
Fast Striker AES ships after all Kraut Buster AES orders are shipped.
Due to Covid 19 production of electronics is currently very slow and
difficult (chip crisis / supply chain crisis).
Earliest for any Fast Striker AES shipments will be Q1 2023.

When we will see the NGDEV remove protection and release the roms? The company is already dead and it sale them all.
I want neoxyx only.

Shut the fuck up you entitled clueless idiot.

You are the virtual equivalent of a dumpster diver. Whining about protos, roms and homebrew constantly. You add nothing of value here, just baseless speculation and misinformation. Sitting around and jerking off to 20 year old mugen screen shots and Z tier homebrew. You're delusional and embarrassing.

Yeah, I didn’t figure I would see Fast Striker AES in 2022.

You ever think how many more sales NGDev could get if they released a demo for their games? Freely distribute a ROM of the first level so people can get excited, or at least know where their preorder money is going.
Actually you know what would be great? Release a digital ROM via email to everyone who buys a cartridge so the problem of waiting for a ridiculous amount of time for it to ship becomes almost a non-issue. Let's be real here, would piracy even cause 1 (one) loss of sale? We know the vast majority of buyers aren't buying it because they're super hyped for playing those games, and the minority who actually wants to play them would support them regardless of the romzorz.

Oh wait, people would hear about their ridiculous lead times on cartridges and would probably pirate instead of buy because lol waiting years after giving them money. Never mind. :keke:

Seriously what the fuck goes on in there that they can't make carts in a reasonable amount of time?

I don't recall the full details of the timeline here, but in the time it has taken to do batches of this, was it the case that xenocider was fully developed and neo carts of that game were made and shipped out?

Yeah, xenocrisis was developed, announced, and shipped all while Kraut Buster has been doing these rolling shipments. They even made Final Vendetta which might ship for AES before Kraut Buster is done shipping.

Woah that's crazy. I suppose it is more due to the extremely risen costs that they postpone. They hope that in 2023 prices get better again so they have more margin.

I was seriously considering picking up a couple NG dev team games but with the lack of stock, outrageously long lead times and high price points has turned me off.

Oh well, back to playing my collection of good games.

If you ordered the MVS version in 2018, you got it in 2019. Some people who ordered the AES version in 2018 are still waiting.

And Xenocrisis wasn't fast. It suffered some pretty major hardware setbacks.

I've found that if you have the cash and can preorder the first MVS run, all will be fine as long as you're patient for a few years. These multiple AES prints seem to drag on forever.

Fucking lol.

Just fork over hundreds of dollars, twiddle your thumbs and patiently wait 4-5 years and be glad you got in early huh? Awesome.

I know that they're kicking themselves over this...I don't see their costs coming back down to normalcy for quite sometime as it appears they are still ascending at the moment.

Ah, the ole "wait for gas to drop down to 1995 prices" maneuver. Classic tactic. Any day now.

Any...day...now...

Not the best analogy there, LS. Oil was effectively free very recently and gas was $1.50.

Seven year pre-orders... impressive.

Makes Limited Run Games look positively efficient at anywhere between 6 - 18 months to deliver their collectard shit.

Yep, it's crazy, but it's worked out fine every time. Can't fault them for not delivering.

Was Kraut Buster the last one though?
