Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Did LRG put Shantae 5 on preorder yet?

We don't have a confirmation one way or another whether LRG will get Shantae 5. During a fireside chat they mentioned they'd like to and had expressed that to WayForward, but there weren't any plans.

 

Shipping/production updates since 10/25 below, changes in bold.

 

Spoiler

 

Of note:

  • LRG has 112 separate sold SKUs pending shipment. Considering a lot of these are open pre-orders we don't know the exact quantities, but if we estimate low at 2,000 then they need to ship about 224k units of already-sold product.This is up 9 items from two weeks ago.
  • Some older PS4 titles shipped, but it appears that the primary focus is River City Girls and Celeste. Standard editions have been marked off the list because shipping has started, but shipping hasn't yet ended.
  • LRG shipped out 8 SKUs in the past two weeks. This seems to be pretty consistent with their pace from the past few months (15-20 per month), but this also means they've got around 6-8 months of inventory to ship. Throw in holiday vacations and the current backlog would likely extend even longer.

You know, when they announced all of the Jak games forever ago, Jak X was the one I was excited for since there wasn't a modern port like the trilogy for 1/2/3 on PS3 and Vita. But when I saw that Jak X is coming next week, I realized I just didn't care. Every week the magic feels a little more dead.

The diecast car is kind of cool. Everything else is either useless or, I'm sorry, ugly, because the art for this game is just not very good.

They need to patch the Vita version of Night Trap. They sold us a broken game and haven't fixed the problem.

One will be loose and rattling the other will not.

Meow :beer:

I'm new to this thread but I guess it's common knowledge/acceptance that many disc games from LRG are loose in their game case when they arrive unless you order with a box.  Seriously, every single one of my games they have sent me in an envelope is loose inside the case. It's really hard for me to believe that "it's the post office's fault" since it hasn't happened with any other supplier I've received games from in the mail.  My only solace is that the Blurays "should" not be getting scratched but really sucks for those games I am keeping sealed because it just makes them feel cheap.

It's not just LRG, it's literally every PS4 game because of a design flaw in the disc holder design that Sony refuses to fix.  I get loose discs from Amazon and Best Buy as well on a weekly basis.  Luckily, there is any easy way to reattach the disc without opening the game if you're someone that either collects sealed or prefers to keep games sealed until you're ready to open them.  Also, please don't feed the troll.

I would say around 50% of the PS4 games I've received from all retailers had a loose disc. Those cases are balls

Yes they do. Ridiculous to sell a product at that price then leave customers with a worthless game that cannot be finished. Also, I'm not happy about the Atari Classic Edition. Got it this week and they altered that overpriced CE without giving customers the option to cancel. Nothing like paying for an overpriced item to begin with then have it downgraded after the fact. I won't even get into the PS4 shmup situation they still haven't dealt with. Really getting sick of LRG's crap. Effing show some respect to your loyal customers who spend a lot of money. Hopefully at some point LRG learns to act like a professional business and give a crap about the hands that feed them.

I finally received my Celeste CE a few days ago.  I actually like the new packaging and after seeing the shape of the old packaging it is clear they made the right choice to change it.

Wow seriously? I haven't even received a ship notice, but I also had a Vita and NS blind box with it so maybe that's why?

Yeah I just ordered the Switch CE by itself in the order.  They have stated that unusual order combinations tend to get shipped last and it sounds like that's what happened with yours since you had the Blind boxes with it.

Messenger SRG edition bloodstained CE and something else I forgot. It was 3 $100 afternarket items but nobody seemed to have all 3 when I asked hah.

I considered seeing if anyone local wanted to trade for a switch lite and a few games so I didn't have to spend money on an Xmas gift lol.

It was supposed to be a reward only, right? Is this saying it was never available that way (or any way)?

It was never available at all.  That still doesn't explain how they have a bunch of games with that cover though as it sounded like it never got the appropriate ESRB approval.

Ok, so it got a reprint... except they’ll say it’s a first print of this variant. Glad they stopped doing the limited print thing. Maybe they’ll do variants of other games that have gone up in price.

Weird that the Turoks didn't get alternate box art.
