    You can boot to Paprium 2044 anytime using a Game Genie as it disables saving system

    Me MAY need a FAQ in OP...

    So is there a specific game genie code or just plug it in through it? Is there a way to clear everything too like your progress? The game booted with the Paprium 2044 when I first got it, what made it do that and then stop?

    What? And at double the price? None of that makes sense.

    They said it's a great deal because "*The aftermarket (second hand) price don't lie, our products often reach 200% to 1000% of our original sale price".

    Basically he's scalping his own games. Instead of producing more to match the demand he's decided to make his next game even more exclusive and inflated his budget (I assume) while offsetting all the cost to his customers. I hope he crashes and burns under this model, it's predatory and most likely illegal. He's a talented Dev but he shouldn't be in charge of the business side of the company, he clearly doesn't know or want to compromise. The situation with paprium is a little more grey because he is trying to stay afloat after an abysmsal Dev cycle but it really doesn't excuse his willingness to continue it onto his next project. I'm not sure Watermelon even deserves to stay afloat but I guess that's for the customers to decide, Fonzie likes a wallet that doesn't ask questions after all.

    WM still lists my package as "Shipping..." and never provided a tracking number, but the game showed up today. One Investor's Edition shipped from Vegas to Rhode Island via USPS 2-day priority. There's still hope for anyone who hasn't received theirs yet.

    Cool, that means at best the units were shipped 2 days ago. Lines up with other people getting their copies in the US as well. Being in Australia that means in basically out of luck getting it before Christmas or the weekend. Riiiip

    If there's one thing going for Paprium aside from the music (Thank you Groovemaster303 and Jredd),
    it's the fact that it doesn't really care about your feelings. I've already seen one person's unboxing video
    mentioning the "poor taste" in the leather clad gay enemies. Poor thing's feewings go huwt!

    It's dumb, but illegal it is not. It's worth what people will pay for it. If people don't order it at that price (and hopefully they won't), then he'll be forced to reduce that price.

    Of course, if he does sell through a ton at that price, then he's not the dumb one after all this craziness, the customer is.

    I paid $50 for my Paprium.

    To be honest, I don't think it's possible to make a Genesis game like this and make money unless you charge more than that.

    I agree that $339 is a bit much but he's got a point. Scalpers are already reselling WM games on Ebay for insane prices. Lowest price is >$200 for Pier Solar on Genesis.
