They probably have Twitter blocked. NoScript blocks it when I don't allow it.

 

this maybe the problem

I waited till last minute yesterday
to order up blaster master zero 1 & 2..
Also placed Jay & Silent Bob Mall Brawl
and Wizard of Legend in the same box as well. Might as well save on shipping where I can lol

And I'll have to grab the recently announced Star Wars Episode 1 Racer standard to go with the others I pre-ordered from them.
.. Now Where's Rogue Squadron.. .

When the Fuck did they say this? I just bought it this morning and I have GCU.

Edit: I see they updated the page. I guess I was just too focused on getting Metal Slug XX to notice.

Thank god I didn't buy it
Best buy here we go and it will probably get discounted as well

I'm guessing it hasn't been selling well as it has been on the Quantic Dream store for months at 350 Euros and they ship worldwide.

Maybe if they had rebranded it as Ex Machina instead.

I seriously just unsubbed after getting the email for the $350 set. Ridiculous.

This was so great when it released. Such a feeling of height and depth.

One copy of Streets of Rage 4 Classic for PS4 popped up and snagged it. Thought it was a glitch at first. This is my first time dealing with them, are the games usually packed well when they do ship?

Think they will do a release for Bloodstained Curse of the Moon 2? It drops a few days after their “save e3 presentation”

They haven't even started shipping,
You'll get it eventually no joke.

This might be the fastest LRG has ever gone from preorder to game in-hand. Too bad I missed out on the preorders. Glad it's being sold via retail.

I do agree I like the retail box art a whole lot more.

Amen.  That's easily one of their worst covers ever.  It doesn't evoke a single feeling of SoR and is way too dark.  The Bare Knuckle IV version looks like fanart.

 

Retail version will be in stores on the 21st.  It's still entirely plausible that people that buy the retail version will get it before the LRG standard version.   It should easily beat the special editions out by a month or two since they are all needing items from china.

LRG no longer has a waiting list because "any leftover stock is used for blowout sales and conventions."  I watched the documentary on them recently and they really seemed passionate about gaming and collectors.  Now it seems like they are just releasing as many titles as possible without any care for quality or ensuring people who play the games can get them (ex: no purchase limit on many of the limited titles).

They can still be passionate about gaming and be 'greedy'.

They are a business.  Their goal is, surprise, to take your money.  Getting mad at them because you can't just immediately snap one up at random times and actually have to be around for specific events is kind of silly.

Based on Josh's video game collection, i think they are definitely passionate about gaming AND greedy

I would argue that. People have jobs. It’s not always easy to get on your phone in the two 5 minute windows stuff is available (10 and 6). I understand if they set a limit and it sold out. But when you have small print runs of popular games with no purchase limit, scalpers buy them all up immediately. Obviously a first world problem, but it’s something they could easily fix. I understand they don’t want to be stuck with inventory but for more popular titles they should sell either way. I wonder how the preorder model has worked. It would be interesting to see if they typically sell more or less with that model vs the set print run.

They've talked about this multiple times.  Preorders work great for Switch, not so much for PS4, even though they have done it for some bigger titles.  It's pretty clear other limited publishers have had the same experience as there are plenty of companies doing very small runs of PS4 games and taking weeks or months to sell out.  Sure, people have jobs, but very few people have jobs that prevent them from literally taking a minute to hop on their smartphone to place an order during two windows eight hours apart.  Ultimately, their business model for better or worse depends on FOMO a lot of the time and while I'm sure most of us would prefer open preorders for everything, it's completely understandable why they won't do that.

Mighty Switch Force! Collection is out today at Best Buy (sku 6419955). Only 2-3 per store. Make sure your store checks the actual date for that sku because it likely won't be put out thanks to them sending it in a box marked 7/14.
