    Through a Limited Run Games kind of deal? It's better than nothing, but it'd be nice if games that were more successful got a physical release after the fact through more official channels!

    I've finished it a few times, with no issue (Xbox one).
    It's to easy IMO and the NES version is heaps better.

    I forgot
    No, it was a mass release by Capcom themselves, it wasn't a limited run release.

    Loved this game when it came out on my 360. It was one of the only games I could beat on my NES growing up, so the remaster was a blast from the past. The fact they got all the original voice actors from the series was an additional perk to the playthrough. They stayed true to the original and expanded on the story which was also welcoming to me.

    Shame it's going away, but this explains why it popped up on sale on my wishlist for $4 yesterday. I instantly bought it before even knowing this news. And yes, i also pirated a copy of it so I can have it forever, even if Steam bites the dust in 50 years.

    I played the game till the end on PC, and I didn't recall any crash. It was a great nostalgia trip. RIP Alan Young.


    I think I played the NES version, and later on, only played Duck Tales 2 on my gameboy. When I played the remastered version, I was confused, why I couldn't pull object like I used to do in the gameboy version? turned out I mixed my memory with ducktales 2 :)

    You don't need to rebuy old games on Xbox, MS doesn't fuck you over like Sony and Nintendo.

    Actually, this is not the reason.
    If you bought the game, then you can still redownload it after it's removed from the digital stores.
    It's similar than physical copies in the way that when the license ¿ends? then the publisher can't make new physical copies so you can't buy it anymore.

    digital-only suck because:
    - you can't buy it used
    - you can't sell it
    - you can't "share it" (at least sometimes)
    - if the server stops distributing it, then you can't download it again (but this is the similar as "if you lose/break your physical copy", since you can't play it).

    you keep saying you can't buy a physical game after they stop making it....but you can...literally any of the millions of copies?

    you keep saying if you break your disc its the same as them pulling the game from redownload, it's not I can buy the game again from any of the millions of copies.

    Well, if they're out of stock, yeah, you can't buy them.
    That's what I meant with that.
    Once all copies are sold and the publisher/distributor (forgot which one) can't or won't make new copies... how do you get the game again?
    You could find it on second hand market or old stock, but there's no guarantee that you could find it.

    And I said SIMILAR, I didn't say it was the same.

    Digital distribution is not superior nor is it infallible.
