As a side note, the PC version is at 50% availability and the Bunker around 35%. I hope that doesn't hurt their bottom line though they will probably sell over the next day or two.

I could have sworn the PC version was at 40% earlier today, did people cancel? That is sucky of them.

Perhaps that was during the first batch?

2 down 1 to go with Y's.

 

Hopefully all things LRG settle down a bit after these 3 high profile releases are over.

I'm such a Fuck ing idiot. Night Trap was going to be my first LRG purchase. I'm sick with the flu and completely forgot about it. Congrats to everyone who got it. I guess I'll be patiently waiting for a sale on the digital version at this point.

When is the mystery RPG and it's and Y's quantities going to be revealed? 

 

Y's already is going to be crazy like WB and NT.

 

But it's CE, 2 standard variants, PS4 and Vita, and talk of reducing the print run due to PA...

 

Then we are adding another RPG on the same date.  

 

Might want to reconsider...

I had no clue Ys Origin was on this month... luckily, no interest in next week's releases. 

 

EDIT* We still don't know what the YsO CE will be, do we? 

 

And where the hell is S&S?

The developer of S&S is still working on the Vita version, I wouldn't hold your breath for that one.

The bloodbath will resume with Ys Origin.  

 

I'm looking forward to adding that one to my collection.

Search for the world "scalper" in this thread and you will see people rip on resellers 50+ times, so it does not at all surprise me to see a post like yours the moment we defend ourselves. If people took their bitching about Chrisxzwtvrthefk and resellers to "shopping discussions" we wouldn't have this problem.

Was there a collector's version of night trap for PC?

I don't think so, if you mean the OG version. There was a Director's cut though.

Really not sure trying something new with one of their biggest releases is a good idea... like always, no real info yet.

Interesting.  I wonder if they plan on doing some sort of psuedo presale based on this tweet -

 

 

Since he mentions the "set" quantities of the CE.  So basically anyone who put in an order for the base game gets one?

You can brag about your scalping or argue against it all you want in shopping discussions. Just don't do it here where it does not belong in the first place. You can send me a PM if you want to discuss this further.

The only logical thing I can think of is a "pre sign up" that is input as a correction factor in determining print sizes.  Guarantees you a copy, works like a preorder but isn't a preorder, scalpers can't influence this because historically not even 1% of quantity ends up on eBay (even 100 / 8000 is 1.3%), and "LRG assumes the risk" of overproducing during this "experiment" because of people lying and not committing to buying their copies on release day.

 

Even if scalpers don't sign up and buy to create real demand that exceeds sign up demand, or a few people bail and don't commit, a few % of over or under is better than being off the mark 50%.

 

People who said they would buy a copy get 1-5 minute head start to buy and checkout.

Is the bunker worth getting as an investment to sell later like in a year or 2?

If they do it play-Asia style where they send out email links to people who signed up to buy could work.

The fact that no one cares at all about it (when your biggest selling point is your game stars an extra from Game of Thrones) should answer that question.

I have a blog where I review (usually terrible) movies for your enjoyment.  Come check it out at http://aghoulversus.blogspot.com/

LRG is getting btfo with extra inventory lately.

Wonder if they're actually selling through stock or just saying they're sold out and holding them for mystery bags later.

The solution for Ys Origins standard edition.

 

Sell 10,000 copies.

 

Problem solved.

This - in a nutshell - captures what is wrong with the industry today.  

 

What ever happened to the most important question - "Hey, you think this game is worth playing?"

 

Oh well.

If I had the funds I wouldn't mind grabbing a copy of The Bunker and a pc copy of Night Trap since they're still around but if Y's coming in at the end of the month that pretty much will eat the rest of my budget for the month.

If anyone here knew the answer realistically to your question, I doubt any of us would be here in the first place, as predicting the future would be a much more lucrative venture. LOL

 

You where joking right? As your question falls right in line with what the mod has just stepped in to stop(or at least a variation of it).

I wonder if Ys is going to be the hybrid preorder I suggested where before setting the quantity for sony to manufacture, they sell it like a preorder. The turnaround would be much quicker than a typical preorder and everyone that orders one gets one. Extras then can be sold Black Friday style when stock arrives. Everyone wins.
