Seems hypocritical to go into a thread you have no business in and make a post complaining about other people complaining and then trying to tell other people what to do. You also seem to have no idea what this thread is even about or how the LRG business works which is why you think you can just "take your business elsewhere" which doesn't apply in this case. My grandpa always told me to keep my mouth shut if I don't know about something because it would just make me look stupid and he was right. Too bad other people's grandpas never taught them that which is why you always see people giving their unwanted two cents about a situation they know nothing about.

Nah, son.  I come here to talk about LRG and other limited physical releases, learn a little bit, some friendly chatter, maybe see some pics of collections or unboxing new releases.  That's lacking in this thread lately.  Yes, I am complaining about complaining.   :oldman:  :beer:

There's no unboxing or collection related discussion because literally nothing that was ordered months or years ago has been delivered. There's no products in our hands to take pictures of or talk about. So yes, that's lacking in this thread. And yes, LRG is to strictly blame for that.

I received two LRG packages just today and received three more shipping e-mails this week.  They are definitely shipping and have been throughout the past year.

I'm actually still waiting myself on every single one of those items (though some were CEs).

Was one of those who bought Streets of Rage 4, and after I learned Merge was releasing it, asked LRG to cancel my ordet, and they kindly did.

As I've said here before, I don't have any grudge against LRG. The publisher has put on disc several games I've enjoyed, and wouldn't have otherwise (I don't buy digital games, just music). I do agree with folks here that it appears they might be digging themselves into a larget hole laying more releases and orders with existing delays, but I also get it's a business, and they're not EA or Activision.

May be consumers will slow down sales so the company takes more considerate and careful decisions. That's how capitalism works.

Both PS4 games today are already almost sold out in the morning batch (both under 80 copies left).  When its not an open preorder they love to make it a free-for-all.

And they're gone. Both sold out within approximately 10 minutes.

 

Picked up Freedom Finger as I am a sucker for shmups.

It was an easy order though. I got EarthNight this morning without a problem. I've been worried about this lately with some of the PS4 offerings but every game I wanted to get I bought in the morning without issue. Last two I bought previously Neo City Riders and Yaga should also be shipping soon. Hoping they get Samurai Jack soon.

Same here, going to really reconsider collectors editions going forward

Of course they announce it after my Best Buy order of the Switch version can't be canceled.

Yeah, I would have definitely preferred the PS4 version too.  They are getting pretty strategic in their release schedule.  I wonder if the Switch version performs worse than PS4 (or is it simple enough of a game that they look/play the same)?

Welp, time to sell the Switch verison of Panzer I got in the mail literally a day ago after waiting 10 months for it. Had to do this with Brigadine too. Fuck LRG.

Why didn't the PS4 Panzer Dragoon pre-order coincide with the Switch version's pre-order window?

Probably because it was only released digitally at the end of September 2020 while the Switch version has been available digitally since March 2020 which was right around when LRG took preorders for the Switch version.

Dammit... is this a recent thing or did we know this when the NS copy was being sold? I would so much rather have this on PS4 vs NS. Not that I have my NS copy yet (it's tied up with something else that's still being produced).

Great. Neat. I would never have bought the Switch version if this had been announced. Sneaky ol' LRG getting people to accidentally double dip. 



#28705 Tothoro

There are a ton of legitimate reasons to give LRG shit, but I don't feel like this is one of them. A lot of higher profile non-AAA games like this have been releasing first on Switch and then later on other consoles. Brigandine is another recent example and it's happened multiple times with Devolver's games. More than likely it's some behind-the-scenes limited exclusivity shenanigans with Nintendo that filters through to physical releases as well.

I suppose that it's hard to say 100% where the blame is. All I know is that when information is withheld, and options are limited, the consumer loses.

I know I can return it but I have like 2 other things to return to Best Buy already. I don't want to be banned for too many returns.

Won't be surprised if there will be a Grandia I & II PS4 release later.
