I am sure more people could have gotten a copy if they didn't put some in a blind box

The second batch was worse than this morning's for an even worse reason, at least this morning you could chalk it up to them attempting to throw off bots.

For me, both standard and CE pages just did not want to load at all and I actually ended waiting for a good 15-20 for the page to load (had to do this 2-3 times so I had given up hope by this point). Was going to attempt CE since ppl had more success with that and it also loaded first, but that was instant sold out after I tried to check out. Went back to the standard page and saw it had loaded and atc button was there so I gave it a go, and ended up checking out successfully. Really did not expect that at all or to have been able to get one after the CE went so quickly along with the additional Fuck ups on their site, but I'm really glad I got one after all of this nonsense.

Site was so slow. I wasn't sure what was going to drop first so when I saw the CE come up, I started an order for that, then in another window I saw the standard finally said add to cart so I started an order for that. Really only wanted the standard but both orders went through! Didn't even think it would be possible to get both, just had to pay 2 shipping fees.

 

I was only trying for the standard this morning and got screwed with the Lawbreakers thing and couldn't get the main page to refresh fast enough. Glad they didn't do that ridiculousness this time.

 

Yeah I never saw the add to cart button for the Vita version just went automatically to sold out. Lame

It showed sold out for me then after refreshing it was available, you just had to keep trying for a bit.

Regular version didn't go up until about a minute and a half after the time they said, probably tossed some people off since it said sold out

Is anyone else waiting on the Shantae GBC CE or Shantae mega-bundle (which is being held up by the GBC CE)? 

 

I finally received my Obra Dinn CE/Papers Please Vita order on Saturday and it was as others have said, it had a tracking number than what LRG sent.

Received mine and other shantae CE's on Saturday. Looks like another package (presumably steelbooks/slipcover) will arrive this week. Not sure why they didn't combine them into one shipment.

Nope. Not for either. The games came via UPS and I was only alerted of that because I have a UPS account and receive emails for incoming packages. And then I only saw the other shipment (DHL/USPS) because I checked by order status since my UPS shipment was missing a lot of things.

Great... so it could have been delivered and stolen and I'd have no idea since I was out of town for 2 weeks.

Apparently neither game is great, and AFAIK WTWTLW was free on PC. Seems like these releases are catering to the hardcore FOMOs and most non FOMOs would be better off buying each game for $5 digitally.

I believe there will be a standard edition that is getting a retail release later this year.

A book with a fake repro cart for $70 is interesting to people? What am I missing?

I'll take the standard edition of those books.  They seem to be available indefinitely if I'm not mistaken, so no rush to order them right away, though it does look like they are on hand and ready to ship.

I'm missing the appeal of most of LRG's CE items.  I'll see people respond with enthusiasm on Twitter, so I guess there are people out there who just love double-sided posters, pins, and carts that don't do anything.  A repro-cart that actually plays a game is one thing, but throwing in a fake cart for a game that was never on a cartridge or - and this is the best - a book?  

 

It also seems like when LRG licenses something, the licensor basically says "Here - you can have these three pieces of key art" and then LRG just sees how much mileage they can get from that small amount of art.  The art cards usually have the same art as the double-sided poster.  And the same art is probably on the cover.  Konami must have been really generous with "Castlevania" (luckily for me).

Yep, same as last time.  Once you see it, you can't help but notice it.
