Ok, well this is the last time I attempt to get anything off of their Blowout sale. It would be nice if the items you put in your cart were held for a few minutes and not just taken out of stock as you're completing your order. I was able to put 8 items into my cart a minute before the sale. Every time I put my credit card information in and hit confirm order, it would tell me an item in my cart was sold out now and then I had to go through my credit card info again. This happened 3 times to where I was able to get 2 of the 8 items I had in my cart. Amazing.

 

Oh well, I suppose I just won't ever have copies of these physical games

Lol. Another LRG cluster Fuck. The ole you can’t check out fast enough sale 2020 with a bonus if you’re the only person able to add 100$ worth of shit and complete payment in 2 seconds.

I was going to come on here to complain how Shopify/Paypal screwed me over on Metal Slug 3 for PS4, but then I see all this whining about the last Vita games being in the Blind Boxes...

 

The games will still be released the regular way,  A handful of people will get it early if they get a blind box.  So what?  Seriously, SO WHAT?  How does that any way negatively affect you or your collection?  You'll still have your chance to buy your copies, but if you're so insane that you absolutely positively must have it first, you take your chance with a blind box.

 

And if you ARE that insane, chances are you won't get it and you're out that money and still have to buy it normally like everyone else.

 

Good gravy people.

I feel like this sale should be re-titled the LRG "Blow-it-out-your-ass" Sale.

I ended up getting a copy of the Night Trap variant. I sold my PS4 copy when the Vita version was announced, but we all know how that turned out. Nice to get another copy at MSRP, I guess.

The issue is more that they're arbitrarily holding these games hostage. They're printed, they could be sold today and shipped tomorrow. But instead they're just sitting on them, and the first time they've been made available is through a blind box lottery. If I could buy these games today for $100 each and then stop following LRG and waiting for these sales I'd do it in a heartbeat. I may turn to eBay and do just that when copies inevitably make their way out.

 

For myself and a lot of others, these are the last things we want from LRG. It's as much about being done with them as it is about getting the games.

Hopefully I can snag a copy of A Train


Edit,

Never mind it’s not part of the sale .... sigh

 

If you don't care that it's used & If you have a Gamefly membership you can keep it for $30.

The only chance you have at securing what you want is to purchase 1 or 2 items at a time and checking out. Focus on games in batches of what you want the most and pay for shipping multiple times. It sucks, but by the time you hit add to cart 8 times to try and grab everything you wanted, the people who were only buying one game already finished their purchase and that game is gone. When there are hundreds to thousands of people fighting over a stock of 10-50 of each game, most people will unfortunately leave upset.

I completely slept past the sale and don't even care as there were only a couple things I wanted.

Agree with everyone that they're making douchebag moves withholding the remaining vita games.

The other thing that's completely fucking idiotic is making people buy $100 worth of stuff for ONE pack of the cards. Most people would barely even get that more than 2 items in cart before things sell out. A great move to not have to lose $5.

Starting the year on a high note for sure.

If folks were really this angry, just boycott them, but we all know that's not happening because people are sheep.

Good gravy people.

Yeah, the blind box isn't the disease, but the symptom, as this is typical LRG BS and really nothing new honestly. For me, it's the moving of the goal post, again and again. As stated, a few of us only need or want these last few games, and by them saying we have no clue when they will be offered officially, but here get these blind boxes, tells me it could be December 2020 when the last games get released(if at all).

 

When they said they just wanted to hold on to these last games, I was like whatever, your business, I'll get them when offered. But with each new month, some other scheme is revealed, and when does it end? I bought blind boxes the first time around, and swore them off due to the BS way that shit went down, so yeah, I could care less about blind boxes being offered in general. 

 

I honestly looked at March 2020 as the end of this for me, as I figured they would milk it for one game a month, and then be over. Now, after the "we have no idea when these last games will be offered", so here, buy 20 blind boxes, so maybe you get one, what springs up next month, then the month after, etc. These guys have more than enough crap they sell to the masses(to get their nickels & dimes), and I'm fine with that, as if people don't want something, don't buy it. With each new month, the end was near, so I was cool, even spreading the games out, but now I see these guys will just say anything to keep fans suckling at the tit, and for me the milks gone bad!

Actually, when those vita games do go on sale they will most likely disappear as fast as today's stuff, in seconds. So the collectors are probably extremely paranoid they'll miss out on them while fighting off bots, flippers, & other collectors.
Adding these vita games to the blind box is playing to those paranoid fears. Lowering the quantity available for the future sale but more importantly enticing collectors to take a gamble in securing these games now. So you now have extra people interested in buying your blind boxes that otherwise wouldn't care.
Great business strategy thou.

I don't care either way.

I was working also don't really care that much. The only game I was even slightly interested in was papers please and I'll probably pass anyways. Now if they can get the developers to release it on switch id bite.

As for the big deal about the game being in the mystery box.

Based on that tweet the bigger deal for me is the fact they still haven't set a release date for 2020 yet already have it printed and ready to go and are already selling through the copies that are suppose to be held for replacements seems ass backwards but then again I have never delt with this company.

PLEASE NOTE: There was a mistake in the email yesterday that said a free trading card pack would be sent with every order over $100. We were not able to get this offer implemented in an intuitive way on Shopify, so we are not able to offer the packs today. We will find a way to make them available in the future! Sorry for the inconvenience.To make up for this confusion, ALL orders today will include a free exclusive Blowout Sale 2020 trading card.

Regarding the unreleased vita games, they've consistently said that blind boxes were leftover stock from held back inventory for replacements, and overstock from minimum order quantities. Even their advertising banner specifies "warehouse leftovers". So while everyone anticipates a bloodbath when these games finally go on sale, they are already reducing the number available to those waiting patiently to purchase, all to entice people into more blindboxes. I get why they are doing it, but it's slimy to say the least.

So what you're saying is ... good business/marketing strategy on LRG's part.

Folks here need to get a hold of themselves. There are far, far, FAR greater and more important issues to be angry or anxious about. This one over LRG is the epitome of a first world problem.

I don't expect to see people talking about Hong Kong, Australian wildfires, or Brexit on a video game deals/discussion forum. Nobody's dying over this and nobody's acting like they are. But complaints about how Limited Run Games is selling their games on the Limited Run Games thread seems perfectly topical. We're all here because we like games, and we're allowed to because fortunately no one person decides what humans have to spend their time doing.
