I finally got my Bloodrayne 1 & 2 PS5 CE order on Saturday, so that’s all of my 2021 orders fulfilled. Now onto the 2022 orders, LoL.

Is there any way to know if a game will be listed on their Amazon store or at Best Buy, or am I just taking a chance by buying on LRG's website?

I don't know what DHL and USPS do in Chicago, but my items always spend too much time there. My dual pack has been there for a week according to tracking.

I see the same thing but I don't think this is anything more than how DHL operates. I had an item that I thought USPS had for 7 days, filed an issue with USPS and they called me and said they don't have it. So I called DHL and DHL told me the item is still in transit.

If it is a distro title there's a good chance it will end up on Amazon. A numbered title might be sold at Best Buy, but that's less likely lately as BB hasn't been ordering as much from LRG.

So you think something like KOTOR2, not a distributed title (if I understand the terminology), would probably not be listed on Amazon?

And LRG has been throwing them under the bus.

Unless something changes a numbered title would never appear at Amazon. Once it's ready you might be able to get it from a partner store such as VGNY. However, you might be taking a chance since they don't put all titles on their site. Of course if you lived near NYC you would be able to get it in person.

I'd imagine like the other star wars ports the publisher will do a double pack of KOTOR 1&2 for retail (not through LRG).  That's what I'm holding out for (and if it doesn't happen, I'm not going to be hurt as I have plenty to play anyway).

KOTOR2 probably won't be at Amazon or Best Buy.

It will be interesting if Best Buy and Amazon will take notice of LRG inability to ship things on time and all the customer complaints. I would think Amazon would see this and give them the boot ?

Yeah holding out as well - I'd say there's a very good chance it'll happen. Got burned the first time with Republic Commando. Forgot the exact date but that double pack of Episode 1 Racer/Rep Commando was definitely announced before I got shipping confirmation for Rep Commando from Limited Run. I think the news came out early September and then I got shipping confirm for Rep Commando end of that month.

Why would Amazon care?

I just remembered that Douglas said the developers didn't want KOTOR to go to retail because it would cause confusion with the remake. There is also the cart size issue. If it were to happen it would have to be two separate carts or one game would have to be a downloadable code.

yeah these companies are getting worse and worse each time. I thought it was just LRG who was slow at shipping but I then noticed SLG doing the same thing. I have to check but I think I still have like 2 games from SLG that I bought ages ago and still waiting lol

 

I guess I will get my sh!t eventually  Fuck

Both games would fit on a 32GB cart.  But yeah, they'd probably go cheap and just put the first or second one on the cart and make the other downloadable.... and if they put 2 on the cart, hopefully it would have the recent patch that was issued to fix the game breaking bug in the port.

I think when the dust settles on this it'll probably be a "when it's cheap digital" situation for me if I bother getting them at all.

Around the time they posted the Egret mini console, I requested they cancel my turrican oder, and to thier credit, they did. I have nothing pending from them and doubt I ever buy anything from them again. Same with SRG.

The Remake got yoinked away from Aspyr to Saber, so I don't know if that's still the case. They're all owned by Embracer at this point (including LRG) so your guess is as good as mine.

The first one doesn't sound that unreasonable.  The couple weren't married and the charity provides $50/day in meals, a room, and transportation if from over 500miles away.   It doesn't cover someone quitting their job and not paying their bills.  I understand wanting to be there for your kid, but unfortunately this is a line too far.

 

Yeah the second one is pretty deplorable.  Not because they try to cultivate folks who contact them that they want to donate their estate or part of their estate, but that they'd fight surviving family members over it.   Though they are not at all unique to doing this it's still very shady they'd spend donated money to fight a legal battle for more donations.

Overall though, i think what they provide families is pretty decent.

Several books went up for order today on LRG but I'm not seeing the cheaper book-only media mail rates.  For example, two books by themselves cost over $11 to ship, but when I add 2 games to the order (which should have kicked in a higher shipping cost), I'm still getting $11 and change.  I am based in the US. 3 books are $28 to ship...ouch.   Is anyone able to get the cheaper media mail rates?

Damn, they always get me with these classic PC adventure games.  I already have Grim Fandango from Iam8bit and I ordered DOTT from LRG last month.  Gotta get this too!
