No email here as well.  Been a customer since Saturday Morning & bought something at least every other month.

You are paying for a physical copy, regardless if it is on Plus (like Oddworld: Soulstorm)

I'm usually up for LRG bashing but sometimes you guys don't even try.

Breach & Clear (Vita) was my first order, but I opted out of their emails a while back... so no email for me.   I can't imagine it'll be anything worth my cash.

Josh mentioned on Twitter months ago that it is a small gift.  I'm sure it's just a pin or some other trinket.

Yeah, something I don't care about  missing.  Thanks for clearing that up.

Same here, and while I opted out of emails awhile back, I also haven't bought anything from those clowns since they announced holding the last few Vita games hostage. So I'm probably on their "no fly list" either way, which is what I signed up for, and no regrets(at least none yet). LOL

IIRC, Josh originally said it was going to be for people who made a purchase in 2015 and 2020 on the same account. I believe Breach and Clear Vita was their only 2015 release

You got double burned too because you went through all the effort to collect all of their vita stuff and then no free garbage game all this time later.

My last direct purchase from them was Golf Story.  Got burned too hard with that release.   I might cave in on the switch version of the castlevania collection and buy that direct... haven't decided yet.

I started with Saturday Morning RPG for the Vita, have ordered at least one title a year since, and still get emails from them, but I guess I didn’t make the cut for whatever this bonus is.

Edit! Apparently they clarified on Discord that you didn’t have to order in 2015 but you had to have created an account in 2015. I didn’t until January 2016, so that checks out.

LRG responded on Twitter saying the reason they can't put it on disc is because the game isn't DRM free.

Not defending or attacking them, just relaying information.

I mean why even do it then, or not just wait to do the physical of the console ones? This is icing on the cake that their original intention was just a farce

This one really thins the line on what is meant by LRG's mission/branding statement.

 

That said, I'm sure there are folks who will be all-in on this, which is of course, fine. 

 

I appreciate that LRG brings out on-disc games and with the physical gaming market declining in the way it is, publishers like LRG are soon going to become among those representing the last stand for disc/cartridge game releases - especially for A and AA games.

The Among Us thing feels more like a Gamestop cashgrab-in-a-box than an LRG offering. They're free to do whatever they want obviously, but it does seem hypocritical considering their original mission and how many times Josh/Doug have criticized Gamestop's anti-consumer practices in the past.

Wasn't that the online only game that took so long to arrive that the servers were no longer even online by the time people got it?

Did they also include those in blind boxes?  Shameful, if they did.

 

Didn't they also, at the time of release, have a bundle of it and the hot selling title (Wonderboy I believe?)?  So when the standard editions of Wonderboy sold out people were forced to buy the bundle with that turd Lawbreakers.  Also, shameful.

Yep, was gonna bring that up. This was kind of a turning point for me with LRG... used to love them before this but once they did this, basically saw them for what they were: a business.

I know they baited people into buying Lawbreakers on one of the last big collection releases to try to stop scalpers, I dont remember which CE it was but the original link ended up carting Lawbreakers instead of the real CE that they waited until the release time to put up

It was Jak and Daxter Collector's Edition bundle during the Blowout Sale.
