I get that you guys didn't cause it, so there is a degree of not my fault going on, and that's righteous. The thing is, though, that you sell limited, single print games. People can't just go buy another one from a corrected second batch. That's why cutting off the replacement and not sending an email to everyone that bought one just seems not okay. I actual missed this because I wasn't on CAG very much when this happened, so I'm just hearing about it for the first time now.

People throw you guys way too much flak, but it's somewhat deserved in this one instance.

Is your copy open? Because you’d have to open it to replace the cover. If you had noticed it yourself before reading about it here you would have likely sought out an answer. Much like I did about the bar codes on ys and asdevine. Since you didn’t seek an answer from something after 6 months it feels reasonable to assume you were bothered by a minor discrepancy you didn’t notice until it was pointed out to you. Now you wanna make a biggest deal about missing out on something you didn’t know what wrong? That seems a little pedantic. I didn’t notice it at first. Wasn’t u til I saw it on Twitter a month or so later. I wouldn’t have gotten mad at them. It’s a printing error.

Let it go because it’s starting to sound like people are actively looking for things to bitch about LRG for. I gotta wonder how much energy you put into hating every single company that makes a mistake. It wasn’t malicious. They tried to do right. You missed out after 6+ months.

Open a support ticket, request a cover. I'll come up with a way to keep offering these for the time being.

Sending these out by default was not an option due to the time and expense required. Bearing in mind that many people who bought Dear Esther didn't buy it for collectability (they bought it for the game) and couldn't care less about the LRG spine number - it just wasn't practical. The missing number only affects people collecting a full LRG set and even then it's only really practical for people opening the game.

I seriously can not express how minor the correction is. If we had shipped a game with the wrong title on the cover or had somehow accidentally slipped pornography or objectionable content on to the cover - yeah, we'd ship out replacements to everyone by default because the issue affects everyone at an equal level. When we're talking about an issue that only really matters to A) people buying strictly on the LRG basis and B) those collecting a full-set for display sequentially - it's not on a level where the most extreme corrective measures are necessary. I hope that's understandable.

If you or anyone else needs a replacement, just open a support ticket now. I'll sort it out. You might get a "no" before I have a chance to talk to CS but don't worry. I'll leave the window for this open for a bit.

Just to make sure the correct information is out there, in the situation you're referencing, the person got a better condition copy back. They were upset that they didn't get their specific copy back - not that they got a worse condition copy.

We do generally try to ship unique covers to people who buy two copies but we can't guarantee it. We don't get an equal split from Sony. We also can't do it if you order multiple copies across different orders because we can't keep track of which cover went in which order. We can only do it if all copies are in a single order.

I don't understand how you weren't able to get the Dear Esther cover - did you request it through Freshdesk and get a response from Sarah or did you send an email and never see a response? We don't do CS through email - it was too hard to track open and resolved issues via email. As for Freshdesk - we sent out over 1,000 covers - I'm not sure how we missed your request three times. I'd be happy to look into it. We've stopped replacing covers at this point but if you have open support tickets that were never responded to, we can grandfather the request and get one to you.

I ordered two copies each of Ys and Wonder Boy in the same order. Are you able to offer an exchange for the opposite cover or is that something you don't do?

 

I opened a Freshdesk ticket regarding the Dear Esther cover. I received a response from Sarah telling me it would me it would be sent out. A few weeks went by and I didn't get anything. So, I reopened the same ticket. Sarah told me it would be included in my next order. I waited for a few orders to arrive and never got the cover. I then reopened the ticket a third time and this time Sarah promised to mail me the cover on its own. Quite some time has passed and I still don't have it.

 

Should I reopen my old ticket or create a new one to get the cover? I will wait until Monday to give you time to discuss it with your CS people.

 

I hope I'm not getting Sarah in trouble in posting this. I also hope I'm not being a troublemaker either. I have been a loyal customer of LRG and have purchased every release since Breach and Clear.

Anyone who contacted us through Freshdesk before we had the covers DID receive a followup communication noting we had the covers. Anyone who ever directly contacted support regarding the spine number should have gotten a cover. I'm sorry but I didn't have an effective way to remember to followup with people who contacted me through forums, Twitter, or email. Inquiries logged on Freshdesk were categorized and followed up with.

I actually contacted about the cover way back when it happened, and never got one :( I opened a support ticket too. I got a response saying one would be mailed out and then the ticket was closed with [Need to Mail] added to it.  So I just assumed it was coming.  I didn't think much of how long it was taking, kinda figured they weren't in hand or something lol.  

 

Looks like I need to reopen a support ticket too then.

They are quick to point out all these things that are not their fault when really they are even if indirectly.  Because it otherwise wouldn't be an issue with any other retail game outside of the "ZOMG RARE SOLD OUT!!!!1!" business model they support. \o/. They chose the model, to the bane of collectors every Friday. It's LRGs to own.

 

I didn't care since this is the first and only print, it's forever. A piece of paper on the side doesn't change it. Part of the history or back story or whatever you want to call it. There will never be a sealed copy without the misprint so this is official. And if you see one without you know it's a reseal.  Collectors usually go nuts over things like misprints.

 

As for the flack LRG gets they need to own it, it's a situation they created in the first place. Nobody asked for them to irresponsibly screw over who knows how many collectors with their fake scarcity and unrelenting release schedule. They've caused more harm to the collector scene than good.

It's been delayed as it wasn't built properly for physical cart. Basically the game has to be rebuilt. It's coming but any rumors of an ETA are inaccurate. It's one of those "it'll be ready when it's ready" situations.


Anyone know if Severed has been mentioned for a physical release at some point?

At this point you should probably ask Vblank that question.

There are very few people overall that have an obsession with buying every single game that LRG releases. I understand that you have that problem, but for the vast majority of LRG customers it isn't a problem at all. I personally have skipped many titles when they were games I wasn't interested in. I own a lot if Vita physical games, but again I don't buy games that aren't appealing to me. I don't think there is anything wrong with LRG's release schedule, personally I feel that the more physical releases, the better. I can pick up just the games I want, in the genres I enjoy. No big deal.

Anyway to get bigger runs for switch games? How does LRG determine how many of a particular game to print?

they have to do at least whatever the minimum the console manufacturer allows. If I had to guess Nintendo's minimum is larger than Sony's

Maybe we'll get word on the physical PS4 version soon, then.

I just got my FMV Friday order yesterday and everything looks fantastic! :D

Was the Steam code for the PC Version of Night Trap supposed to be included in the box?
I never received an e-mail with the Steam code (as stated on the Night Trap PC version page on LRG's site) so I thought the code might be included when the physical games shipped.

Should I go ahead and open a Support ticket?

Were your 2 PS4 games in the protective cases the FMV description mentioned?  Neither of mine were and I wondered if I imagined it

 

As for the PC code for Night Trap, it was sent via email in mid  August.  I just happened to notice a tweet that all keys had been sent when I realized I didn't receive one.  I opened a ticket back in August and 10 days later received a steam key.

 

If you didn't get it back then, open a ticket.

I should have clarified - meant more along the lines of price/dates. I know they said by the end of the year and that the Switch version will be $20.64, but the more finite the details the better. Interested to see how the rest of the year shakes out after the ESRB shakeup.

Everything I received was securely packed in bubble-wrap inside of a large white box - I don't recall hearing about any protective cases being included (although you can purchase them separately on the LRG site - maybe that's what you're thinking of?).

 

Thanks for the info about the digital copy!
I had to open a Support Ticket to get my Lawbreakers Steam/PS4 codes a while back but I completely forgot (at the time) that I was supposed to get a Night Trap Steam code as well!

Night Trap Steam keys were emailed out but were prone to being caught by spam filters. I don't know how we can avoid that. :\

We can provide you with the key you were sent, though. Support has a full list.
