New Dreamcast Games From JoshProd Ship

You'll no doubt recall a few months ago we shared the news that French publisher JoshProd was lining up a range of new Dreamcast releases and re-releases. One of these was Breakers (our review is here), and another was the new Rush Rush Rally Reloaded. The good news is that the games have now been manufactured, the PAL cases have been acquired and shipping has commenced for everyone who pre-ordered. We heard some real horror stories about the website of choice (French games site Rush On Game), but is seems many of the niggles have been ironed out. JoshProd shared some amazing images on Facebook and we thought they were worth sharing here too:
Did you order? Have you got your games yet? If so, what are your thoughts on these new releases and re-releases? Let us know in the comments or join the discussion in our Facebook group.

I wish they'd offer a legal download option for people with a GDEMU or USB-GDROM. I know there's a collector's market, but there are those of us who prefer to make better use of shelf space and modern technology too! :)

I know where you're coming from, but from their point of view it comes with the risk of the ROMs being posted online etc. It's certainly a good idea though and a service like that for GD Emu owners would be cool.

Yeah I agree with Pete. I don't care to collect repro/homebrew disks, I'd rather just download the game. I'd even pay full price for them if they were good enough. But inevitably someone will just rip these disks and share them for the rest of us...

Also I know I'm american and therefor out of the loop when it comes to cultured use of language, but am I the only one concerned with the use of "niggles"?

Tom Charnock said...

Concerned about what, exactly?

niggle
ˈnɪɡ(ə)l/
verb - cause slight but persistent annoyance, discomfort, or anxiety.

I preordered two of them, yes, and truth be said, other than the paypal receipt I have noy received any order confirmation of any kind... I will give them a few days after Labours Day and then send an email. Right now the light is yelow. Normally it would still be green but given the track record of the store....

The games were apparently only received on the 28th, I guess they will shipped by beginning of next week, because of the extended weekend..

I haven't managed to order any of them as the website is absolutely abysmal and wont let me fill out any information. Now I see the price has been raised and I still can't order them. Guess I'll be paying resellers on ebay at this rate.

Well, I placed two orders on March the 2nd and both are still processing, two months after. Both should have shipped last week. I am starting to feel the itch to contact paypal...

I placed an order on the 29th of April and received an email today confirming the games have been dispatched to my address

We're currently in discussion to stock the NTSC versions of these at The Bit Station. So if your outside of Europe and don't mind waiting, we should have these sometime in June

Tom Charnock said...

Let us know when you have them Robert and we'll share the info

Got my copies today, they loook amazing. I ordered march the 1st, so a long wait is finally over. :)

BlueSwirl said...

Turns out they are pretty useless, I orderd all five and they sent me two copys of Dux instead of a copy of Alice, it cost me about 180 euros and they want me to send it back for a refund, how about you send me what I paid for then I'll send it back!

Well, I am still waiting for my copies of Breakers and Rush Rush Rally Racing. They were shipped like 12 days ago, but the French post is notoriously slow so I am giving them another week before I contact them. I think what this JoshProd guy is doing is great for the community, but the store is a different thing. I have zero tolerance for bullshit and fishy practices, specially when I pay a generous price in advance for the production of these printed cds.
