There's no indication that Dark Devotion or Blossom Tales (SW) may be at BBY right?

So they can figure out how to give everyone a card they conveniently printed enough of to give everyone without having to put it in shopify but they can't figure out how to sort sales by amount and make sure whomever is packing the $100+ orders would throw a pack in the box?

Yeah, right.


They sure did figure out how to sell the card packs quickly..

The product pages don't have the disclaimer, so it doesn't appear that BBY will be getting them.

Yeah, that's what I figured, but I know they've added it in at the last minute once or twice or just announce it randomly on twitter so making sure.

I didn't see it mentioned with Blasphemous at the time of the sale but its there now.  Pretty sure that was added last minute.

 

Blossom Tales is one that I would think they'd encourage BB to carry, but I guess not.

 

Also, what the hell is with that generic Kemco RPG selling out so fast?  Pretty sure I have yet to see anyone mentioning they were looking forward to picking it up and even their Twitter mention of it being on sale had very few comments.  Honestly seems kind of fishy to me.

Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger IX (PS4) is up for preorder at Best Buy:

 

https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6395591

 

No sign of the Switch version at BB yet.

 

This is only an LRG distributed title so the cover art should be the same.

 

The weird thing is only the Switch version at LRG mentions it will be sold at BB as its not currently showing on the PS4 listing at LRG.

If you search for the game it doesn't show the Switch version. However, once you are on the PS4 listing, you can change the console to Switch and order the Switch version. Thanks for posting! I was waiting for Best Buy to get this instead of getting from LRG since I still have GCU for one more year.

by reading this thread, sounds like LRG getting worse and worse

and they weren't good to begin with

 

at least back then they occasionally put out games that weren't 2 dollar steam sale shovelware

It's the same case for both. The game can technically be completed now, but there are a lot of performance issues and the Survival mode crashes before you can earn some of the trophies.

Oh you're right didnt realize he had patched, apparently you still can't get the platinum trophy though due to continued glitches, I think it's just 1 guy working on it so nobody thought he'd ever get around to fixing his broken release

So, on the New Years Blowout sale I thought all games were “in-hand” and would ship immediately 🤔. I made 2 separate orders and one has one game status simply as red and the other says the Nintendo Switch Blind Box is “In Production” with estimated ship of February 2020 and my PS4 CE Blind Box as simply red....what happened to the blind boxes being for already produced/released games?!?

Anyone know if these will actually be removed from the site on the 10th? Fairy Fencer was supposed to be removed back in Oct and is still available for purchase.

It’s extra printed copies left over. Nintendo requires a nice full round number of copies to be printed. If the preorder total reached 3005, they have to print 4000 copies of the game.

Man. This shit is getting sketch. I appreciate a community that knows all this insider type stuff but it’s a bummer to see it.

I've found that when these guys drop a game that I DO need, it's best to wait until the very end of the pre order window. If you do it that way, it's several weeks off of your wait time, or at least it feels that way to me.

I ordered a few asap and by the time I got impatient and was checking the status, it was still in the last week of pre-order. I've kinda figured out since that it's best for me to wait.

If the games were numbered I'd probably always buy asap but they aren't so who cares when you order.

Fairy Fencer F ADF really doesn't run all that well on the Switch. The very first update patched in a loading screen after entering a dungeon because the enemies spawning caused massive slowdown.

I ended up placing a last minute order for Knights and Bikes PS4 late Friday, as I've been a long time fan of Double Fine.  It was a bit tough to accept paying almost $40 after taxes and shipping, making it more than double the regular PSN price.

 

For the same reason, while Blossom Tales on the Switch looked like a game I would greatly enjoy, paying 5x the current digital price of $7.49 to get a physical version just wasn't worth it.  Though LRG's offering did encourage me to look into the game, and I finally bought it digitally.

That 50 page manual with DOS2 for switch was quite a dangle.

Caved last night around the same time..
I added Divinity,Blossom Tales and Dark Devotion and checked out. Not sure if Devotion was worth it..
Blossom Tales:The Sleeping King I didn't even know existed without lrg or this site
I most likely will be buying it digital later tomorrow for $7.50. Too good to pass up and was almost the reason I didn't buy it physical being so cheap as it's on sale at the moment. I look forward to getting these all together one order

Battle Chef Brigade is on sale at Bestbuy for $24.99

I think this is the first time an LRG game has gone on sale at Bestbuy. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Only no one said they bought the game because of the manual. And someone (me) sarcastically suggested it was worth shelling out 60$ for. Sometimes you gotta think outside the box.

I did lol though. You’re right about it being funny.

Night Trap vita is still impossible to complete

 

They have released a patch but the game is still a mess and I was able to open a ticket and returned my copy. I am still awaiting to receive my refund. They are really slow at handling returns but I know I will get it eventually so no worries.

 

Edit Refund has been issues so I am happy.
