I ordered the Forgotten Anne Switch CE.  It was a little too expensive for my taste but ended up biting the bullet since it has several things I like in a CE.

 

 

Yeah, the price is brutal.  It's $50 over the standard which is, in typical fashion, $28 over the current digital price.  LRG managed to restrain themselves from throwing in a folded poster or enamel pin, but there are still headscratchers like postcards, playing cards, and a quill and ink set. - stuff I would expect to see as giveaways at a trade show.   Do people really use this stuff?  I saw a twitter comment where someone really likes the quill and ink set.

Anybody here read or heard if JJ Macfield will come out at BestBuy? I wanted to get a copy but my budgets' stretched thin. I like Swery but 40 bucks for a 5-7 hour game is a stretch for me.

 

sorry I didn't know you were asking about the missing yes the switch version is going to be sold at best buy if you want to know if a LRG is going to be sold at best buy all you have to do is look at the games details it tells you there

They had a total of five weeks without sales in 2019, they've already almost matched that in 2020.

 

I think selling fewer, better titles is going to be beneficial for them (and us as consumers). The "limited physical" market is very saturated right now and sales have been waning. They went crazy last year between their releases, the distribution line, and random partnerships (remember Tetris Effect?) and took a lot of PR hits from stuff like Celeste, the shipping backlog, support backlog, Jak 4 cases, Game Tengoku/Power Rangers replacements, etc. Outside of Vita and Kemco releases, nothing limited really flies off the virtual shelves anymore and I think (/hope?) they've realized they need to be less sporadic.

 

This also gives them time to make up their support and shipping backlogs. Wins all-around from my perspective.

Don't they already do that?

Probably something going over my head here, but I meant it's easier to do that when there aren't floods of new games being sold every month to contribute to that backlog.

First they said that people who bought copies elsewhere (i.e. eBay) would be eligible. Then they said only purchases via their site would be eligible. Then they said if you bought 3/4 via their site and the other elsewhere you were eligible.

 

Emails already went out to those that were eligible, but there was a lot of chaos because people who were supposed to be eligible didn't get the email, LRG changed the criteria, etc. At this point you need to reach out to support if you think you're eligible, but support's also super backed up.

When are those Jak 4 cases supposed to come out?

 

I have jak x as the only one I'm missing, but it's tied to blasphemous so I have to wait for it to ship

After the Jak X CEs, which are currently scheduled for Q2 2020.

I will never understand the appeal of all these generic Kemco releases

Square was making a joke implying that the backlog shipping log is already "made up" or fiction with a tongue in cheek comment is all, I got you Square.

The last email I had from them, they said they would be reaching out once they figured out the details. No mention of proactively contacting their support regarding it.

Limited Run Club O' Fun News ... I can only imagine Doug came up with that name and Josh was like, "whatever, just make it happen".
 
Maybe there will be some decent info in there like the next 3 months of releases on a release calendar.

Every month will just say "Correction for last issue: All items listed for shipment have been delayed until next month." but since you receive the magazine with your order, the magazine will be outdated by 6 months.

First time they've had a valid excuse, and all it took was a global disease epidemic.

 

Honestly, the most LRG thing that could've ever happened to LRG.

Heads up on the delayed games, it's not the games just the CE's because even though they said they weren't having their CE contents manufactured in china, which is why games cost more than when Play-Asia makes them, they are having their CE contents manufactured in china.  The actual standard edition games are not delayed.

 

So, yeah, they just outed themselves.

They've mentioned sourcing things in China before (like Steelbooks), so not much of an outing really.
