Doesn't look like Pix is on the list yet, but keep checking back.

 

As a note, waitlist copies go out after the items have shipped to normal orders

Can anyone confirm they've ever gotten anything from going on a LR waitlist? From what I've gathered, it's pretty pointless. Have heard people complain they were on wishlists only to see leftover stock show up in blind boxes 6 months later.

Bunch of people on one of the Facebook groups I am on have gotten the first two JAK CEs and a bunch of other games from being on the waitlist.

A lot more miss than hit in my experience. Speaking to your last point - I do wonder if anyone got Salt & Sanctuary (Vita) from the waiting list as they actually ended up putting leftover copies for that on the site.

I was on the wait lists for Rabi-Ribi and Iconoclasts, both for PS4, but never heard anything.

A swing and a miss for me on the waitlist.  They announced the batch of games they were putting up for year end and one of them was my waitlist game.  I opened a ticket BEFORE the end of year sale asking why I wasn't being offered a chance at the game before the sale and they got back to be a couple of weeks later saying waitlist is not a guarantee. 

 

 

Won't waste time on that again.

Nice. Jak 1 is worth a ton now.

Someone explain why Celeste is a godlike game ppl praise. I played the digital vs and man it sucks balls. Its just meat boy which I don't like. Its aimless rooms with no progression path or real story. I get no fun or joy going thru rooms.

Has anything been said recently about a bonus for anyone that has a complete Vita collection? I never saw an original quote about that, so wasn't sure if it was true.

I'm still confused by this release, especially when the Anthology is available on PSN. And as far as I know, there isn't anything added to this release like 'King of Fighters '97' or 'Samurai Shodown V Special,' is there? They could've at least gone with something a little newer like 'Metal Slug XX.' The whole point is to "preserve" otherwise digital only games.

I nominate you to speak at the town hall meeting.  :grouphug:

 

On the released list of VITA's last stand, MS3 might be the biggest headscratcher of all.

Depends which version of metal slug 3 this is. The ACA version supposedly was recoded for ps4 and has online leaderboards & difficulty settings. The other non-ACA MS3 has online co op play & online leaderboards.

I've heard the ACA versions of metal slug are better because they don't have input lag. I have anthology & MS XX on ps4 and they have noticeable input lag unfortunately.

It could also been the case where LRG was going to release each game individually (before vita cart ending news) to make snk more money as that might of been the only way they let them do it. LRG said the same thing about some other series recently.
Also mentioned how $60 was a tough price point for them to sell even for compilations, that's why they prefer to sell lower priced individual games.

In the last fireside chat they said they weren't going to talk about it for a while and Josh expressed annoyance about the quantity of questions. Part of me thinks they put Papers Please in 2020 just to avoid having to deal with the full set game until then.

Ah that could be the case, but then the question is: was MS3 the only one ready to go, or could they have chosen which entry?

 

It'd be nice to know which release people are buying before people buy them. But why help the consumer...

Man I feel sorry for the sad saps that are still in the game for every brand new Vita release.

And let's not blow by..... Red Faction?   I can see the PS2-games-in-PS4-packaging thing is here to stay.

when they announce the day something goes up for order, what time that day does it actually show up on the website?

 

 

id really like some help with this to avoid getting scalped. ive been reading and you guys say it takes one minute for copies to run out, im trying to get a copy of star wars, and that seems like precisely the kind of thing people would mindlessly order in 30 seconds.

 

 

any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I wasn't planning on buying their glorified reproductions... but this looks slick as hell.

That's actually really cool.   Super smart of them to package the games inside a blister card for collectors like that. 

 

Fig collectors pay $29.99+ all the time without a second thought.

was planning on it, but I don't like the packaging at all.  I don't get it.  I mean, I get it, but these aren't retro action figures.  I actually assumed they'd be releasing these in NES/GB packaging.  You know, the things nostalgic video game collectors might be into.  This "game on action figure card" thing doesn't work at all, IMO.   The NES cart almost completely obscures the card art!  

For me, this is a new low in packaging and a huge misstep (can they ever have missteps if these inevitably sell out?).  But, they saved me plenty of money.  

Now I'm nervous about what they are going to do with Monkey Island.   I just want replica boxes - maybe with some higher quality (embossing/spot gloss).

Yeah that packaging isn't my style at all. It looks cheap. I'd rather prefer cardboard boxes like the originals even if they weren't perfect.

Sales are 10 AM & 6 PM US Eastern Time. There's a countdown on each product page on the site if you're not sure what the regional equivalent is.

 

Except for their VR releases (which happen Wednesdays), all of their new releases go up on Fridays. Star Wars is this Friday (6/28).

Uh, cool way to keep cost down on box reproductions I guess, but I had no plans to buy old SW games either way. But for those who may be in the market, more power to all involved, as I'm guessing these will sell to somebody someplace who has an interest, it's just not me.

Star Wars on NES, cartridge only goes for $10 or so.  I remember game stores having  used games in the same type of cheap packaging. Minus the Star Wars branding obviously.
