for those who ordered the Obra CE, have you received yours yet? I guess I'll be contacting them yet again, this is ridiculous

 

My Obra CE finally arrived on Monday. The tracking number provided by LRG was completely different from the one on the box. I'm not sure why they needed to make three different labels for this shipment. I understand the first label expired due to DHL's rules, but why was the second one not used and why make a third one, but not let me know about it?

Oh good, I was about to bitch about mine still not showing any updates on the 2nd tracking number but I guess there's a third tracking number that I have to look out for. 

 

Now if they'd only ship my Shantae GBC mega bundle...

Surprise that they are continuing to support Vita physical with that super meat boy. I might get that.

I believe the cover is reversible on the Vita. I have a copy (bought on eBay after the blindboxes) and mine is the Meat Boy face instead of that.

The games were printed years ago before Vita cart production in NA stopped. This is their last release beyond the confirmed-but-unspoken-of full set game. If you want a copy you'll need to be fast in checkout, a lot of people are vying for this and there's a very limited quantity. I expect it to go in literal seconds.

Awesome so there will be a two day overlap to order the first two games together. I missed Shantae on the other consoles

It is nice that both Shantae games overlap and you can order them together, but I would not if you are getting the Collector's editions. LRG is gonna stack both boxes on top of each other and wrap some flimsy bubble wrapping around, stick them in cardboard box that is only marginally thicker than cardstock and hope it doesn't get crushed in transit. Happened to my No More Heroes boxes.

I really like how NIS packs each collector's box in its own box, and it's free shipping about $75. Sorry for the rant.

The only way to make them stop is for people to stop buying it.

I am super frustrated they decided to split the limited print of Super Meat Boy for Vita up for a standard and a collectors edition.  That is some grade A bull shit cash grab. There was no reason whatsoever to split the release for vita. Just release a standard Vita version.

 

You have the collectors editions for the other version on Switch and PS4 this was not needed.

 

So now I have a 1-1000 chance to get this game. Its actually a 1-500 chance for the AM/PM drops.

I already missed Papers, Please and that was a 1-3000 chance and it didn't have a collectors edition.

 

Can't wait to see how many of these show up on ebay tomorrow.

They've become more and more like GameStop, cluttering up their storefront with random gaming related collectibles instead of just focusing on the games themselves

Don't worry, the website will just crash from all the bots anyway so don't have to bother trying.

I'm fairly sure that, given Shantae is their IP, and easily their most profitable IP, they have the final (or at lest significant) say on everything. The fact that they keep ok'ing all this tells me they're prob making bank on this stuff.... maybe more so than the games. Kinda like how music artists make more money from their endorsements/concerts/appearances than they do on actual music sales.

I'm fervently hoping for a repeat of the Lawbreakers switcheroo LRG pulled in January.

I have bought none of the merch that LRG sells.  Same for the SE's.  It's all just extra crap to me that.

 

BUT

 

I don't have a real problem with them offering merch like they are for Shantae.  If people want it that's probably something very cool for them.  Same for every other publisher that offers merch on their site.  I don't see the issue (please don't confuse this with taking Vita Meat Boy and making half of it into SE's.. that's pretty sad for those that want it and yes it's scummy).

 

It's really no different than them taking digital games and making them physical.  If the games sell then what's the issue.  Merch is just a side market to that and there are a lot of people that love having some item (or items) featuring characters and objects from their favorite games.

My vinyl Dragon Quest Slime figure that I got from Japan for my desk speaks volumes to this.  The right game... the right item... (often the right price)... and I could be a possible customer just like the right game for the right system and I'll throw some money at them for a physical copy (even when I own it digital).  I'm just a lot more picky about this stuff and am not an easy mark customer.

I bet most here have some game merch outside of just raw plain games.  There's plenty of other reasons to hate LRG than them offering it.  Really I don't even have a problem with GameStop offering it.  Some of it is pretty cool to see even if I'm not tempted by most of it.

Yeah I'm not even going to bother with the standard. Just hoping I get lucky with the CE. They really should have limited it to 1 total, not 1 of each standard and CE.

Do the smart thing and if you need to buy a physical copy then just buy one, whether it's standard or CE. Don't cause yourself unnecessary stress. No one needs to do something unrealistic like having to have a complete Vita collection of every single edition released, that's just insanity.

Assuming there is a "free game" for full set collectors, splitting up the SE/CE is a great way to weed out some people because clearly its going to sell out in 10 seconds and many will miss out.  "Sorry you would have qualified for the free game but you didn't get Super Meat Boy so you do not qualify, have a great day!"

Glad I'm not the only one to notice.  I dread the arrival of a few of my pending CEs.  It amazes me how LRG targets the collector and does a little above the minimum when it comes to packaging.  They've been ok with sending replacements or replacement parts, but when I tried to get the Streets of Rage CE box without any damage they'd just send the replacement exactly the same.  I think the CS person put a note on the 2nd replacement asking to double wrap it.  It came the same way.  The CS rep tried to blame the carrier, but I pointed out that these were shipped in thin boxes with one layer of bubble wrap (and I don't think it even covered the whole box).  The best part about that Streets of Rage CE is when I ultimately wanted to give up and get a refund, they refused because of that steam code they sent out.  So, because they sent me something I didn't ask for (and never used), I was ineligible for a refund when they could not figure out how to send it without it taking damage.  The CS rep did not care that I didn't use the code.
