Who knew Switch game cards had entrails?!
Limited Run Games has offered a physical release of DOOM: The Classics Collection on Switch for awhile now, but some users have reported an issue with the title. Those who purchased the game and had a Switch that was never connected to the internet were still being hit with a message to sign into a Nintendo Account to access content. Limited Run Games offers physical titles to avoid issues like these, and they were only made aware of the problem once copies were in fans’ hands.
The new physical copies being offered don’t have the same problem, so everything is fixed up for new customers. What about those who have the old game cards? Limited Run Games is offering replacement game cards, but they need proof that you actually own an affected copy of the game. Limited Run suggests you open a ticket on their website and then ship back your game cartridge, but one owner took a more dramatic approach to approving his replacement request.
Instead of simply returning his game card, DOOM: The Classics Collection owner Zuljaras took the time to craft a DOOMguy out of polymer clay. Zuljaras then physically cracked his game card in two, and placed it in the hands of DOOMguy to make it seem like he ripped and teared his way through it. We don’t think DOOMguy would have it any other way!
