Am I too poor or frugal to understand? Linking even more overpriced Atari games just makes it worse.

My as well link the Atari VCS...

The vcs would be a better purchase than any of these overpriced repros.

I think srocky linked that because they are the source for the repros with LRG acting only as a distributor.  Similar to other games that are part of the distribution line sold on lrg's website.

Senran Kagura sold out in like two days? I thought "no purchase limit" usually meant they just took as many orders as possible for a certain period of time and then manufacturing would just make as many as needed? Has this changed? Surprised to see an item with no limit sell out so fast.

It was only a few minutes and it wasn't a pre-order. They had a set amount "no purchase limit while supplies last" they just didn't last.

Their email did say limited copies, with the word "limited" highlighted. I think they stopped 3DS production so I'm guessing this was like leftover stock they found.

Well they should limit "limited" copies then... Seems odd LRG just selling a company's leftovers, especially since XSEED has its own online store.

This was a reprint of 3500 copies. It was going to be a standard edition, but Xseed had enough of the bonus items that were able to make it the Double D edition.

Interesting... but also seems odd they'd have so many extra bonus items, including the outside box.

They probably had unsold extras sitting in a warehouse somewhere.

Hi, my name is astrotide and.. I'm a limitedrunholic.

 

It's been 336 days since my last order.

 

I obviously am still waiting to receive it.

 

I've been tempted to place a new order several times but my sponsor slapped me until I didn't order anything.

 

I did go ahead and order Shredder's Revenge standard edition on amazon, using the Amex 40% off promotion my card gave me, for a total cost of 20.99 + tax and free shipping... which is half the price I would have paid to Limited Run, and I didn't even have to give amazon a free loan and pay at time of order. I was vaguely tempted by the $200 Turtles collectors edition on the limited run site, but I realized the stuff included didn't really appeal to me, even as a TMNT fan. Plus I got burned bad on that Streets of Rage 4 set... thing was giant and I had no place I wanted to store it and I ended up selling it at a $60 loss and it only took a year to sell.

 

And why is Limited Run charging $5.79 to ship a single video game with no box? I mailed one out in a bubble mailer a few weeks ago and I paid under $4 for first class mail.

 

Sorry I'm being slapped again.

 

So if I ever get my last order I placed 11 months ago, I can finally let go of the anxious pit of despair that hovers like a cloud of doom, laughing and pointing.

 

See you all at the next meeting.

That nagging stress hanging over a preorder that is paid in full but is taking so long to be fulfilled... it is great I haven't had that in over a year.  Worse is almost every one of those things I ordered I would end up regretting the purchase.  Makes it easy to talk myself out of new games that LRG gets.

If it makes you feel even better, you don't even have to preorder to have to wait.  LRG apparently isn't in a rush to ship distribution product that is just sitting in their warehouse, either.  I decided to just order that Treasures of Aegean CE from them since they'd at least ship it in a box whereas when I tried Amazon - no surprise - they shipped it in an envelope.  My hope had been maybe LRG would have supplied them to Amazon pre-boxed.  Nope.  I wonder who eats the damaged returned product in that scenario.

 

But, that order was placed a few weeks ago.  Right now, I do think of it as another LRG pre-order.  I'll just be surprised when it arrives.

I package random eBay games better than limited run packages their stuff, because I know eBay buyers will open a case against me if I shipped it like they do. It's really pretty sad

The shipping cue kills the deal for me on stuff like that.
 
Oddly, I was just looking at that game (the standard version) a few days ago as it was listed for sale through gamefly and I had never heard of it.   I might grab it when the digital version goes cheap... it looks pretty solid.

I've always packaged games the way I'd want to receive them... often that meant going a bit overboard with the bubble wrap and packaging tape.

Hopefully didn’t miss a post about this earlier but glad as hell they are making a physical copy of Doom Eternal for Switch (seen it for the first time in an ad for what’s coming in my email).

Frankly, it's cheaper to drive to their retail store and back than to pay the shipping costs

Awesome!  I've been hoping this would get a physical Ps4 version for forever. Maybe now Full Throttle has a chance too. Not at all interested in the Collectors barf though.

Nothing in it really justifies the extra cash

It's a game reference, but also highly agreed that CEs are useless tat.

Yeah, just found the potential symbolism and analogy amusing.  If it’s modeled after Barf in the game, that’s one thing.  If it’s just some generic gag store stuff that’s been sitting unsold, that LRG decided to throw in the box, that would be a new low.  It probably is a new low anyway, but even more so.

The Vita Super Meat Boy CE is pretty hard to beat on a garbage to weight ratio being pretty much a 1 since that game was bad, too.

Wish they'd do a standard edition for PC. I just want the box, CD, and game.
