Personal insults are not the same thing as criticism. Complaining about low quality games, delayed shipping, and bad communication is criticism. Personal attacks and insults are abuse. For example, a poster above took an opinion and resorted to immature personal insults and attacks.


This is an opinion that doesn't resort to personal attacks. I completely disagree with it, of course, but he is explaining his reasoning without acting like a child and calling names about it. Do you see the difference between this poster being reasonable and the other poster acting totally immature? This thread had a mix of both types of posters - those who gave real, legitimate complaints and those who just wanted to insult someone.

Can you please stop talking you're ruining my immersion of Vinny fapping to Chun-Li's 16-bit thighs.

Hey guys I recently bought a copy of JJ MacField for the ps4 on ebay. I gave it a once over before opening it and noticed a hole punched through the barcode on the jacket but not on the shrinkwrap. Did LRG do this or is the likely conclusion that the game was opened and re-shrinkwrapped by the seller?

That means it was a promotional copy typically given/sold to Sony employees, and wasn't actually purchased from Limited Run. I used to get them like that from Sony's retail loyalty program when I worked at GS, and Josh has said they've had an issue with a higher-up Sony employee flipping them.

More SNES junk instead of an actual console that's alive

Blasphemy!! The SNES is everliving you deviant.

But Dragon View is not a game that holds up well... And it's from Kemco. So it checks both boxes for LRG.

Yeah, Dragon View was mediocre when it first came out, I can't imagine it's aged very well.

Yeah, that's gonna be a pass on Dragon View. If I'm going to get a repro cart, it needs to be a title that I'm actually interested in. If I passed on A Boy and His Blob (and I did) Dragon View doesn't stand a chance.

 

I am in for Sam and Max. Already got the first one on Switch, need to complete the collection. (also, just a massive fan of Steve Purcell and his work)

Really considering preordering Unpacking for Switch with the vinyl soundtrack. Not sure I want to wait months for the release though. I have other things to play, and this game has been on my radar for ages. Decisions decisions…

If you want it physical you have to wait. I decided to get Gotta Protectors (the 3DS one was fun) and I wont buy it digitally to get it now. I also got Demon's Turf cause it was lauded as good, and I will wait too. Unpacking is on Gamepass and worth a try there. I thought the game (barely a game IMHO), was alright, but nothing I'd spend money on. It relaxes people so whatever. Just remember if you get the vinyl that likely adds a few more months.

Since the soundtrack is sold separately, you could just order the soundtrack... and then go ahead and buy the game digital for $20 (or wait for another $15.99 sale).   The Vinyl production is well behind game production.  It could easily be 2023 before that order would ship.  But by going digital you can play the game now (possibly a year earlier) and maybe still have interest in that soundtrack when it finally ships.  If you are only casually interested in the soundtrack, playing the game now would give you more feedback to if the soundtrack is even worth picking up.

Just food for thought.   It's a 101mb install... so not a huge download at all.

Smart idea. I feel I don’t need EVERYTHING physical. Might just grab the vinyl and enjoy a digital copy.

Got it too... and the item page even updated to At LRG Warehouse.

 

So we should definitely get a shipping confirmation within 3 to 4 months from now!!

Will LRG ship to a PO Box address? I don't know what shipping method they use.

No. But not because it's a PO Box, but instead because they stopped shipping everything to everyone period  :-

 

Real answer: no idea

I think so?  They use one of those methods that hands off to the local post office for final delivery.

The Contra Ultimate Edition looks nice but I don't think it's $200 nice. That $65 version might just have to do.

I really can't imagine the grand opening of their store going well with the most recent round of guidance: https://limitedrunga...dee-information

 

Having people shop online while in-line kinda defeats the purpose of having a physical store, no? Limiting people's time in the store, making some games "hot items", etc... Makes the store feel more like a display case than an actual store.

I still think it’s Josh’s ‘Man Cave’ more than anything.

I'm gonna have to pass on that contra ultimate edition. I think the 34.99 is a sweet better price

So.. this is just the live version of the trying to buy something from LRG back in the day, when you'd be waiting in queue when Shopify was overloaded? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ok.

Yes they do.  Most shipments I get come via DHL with a handoff to the post office near the end.
