Put in cart the second it showed up, hit check out, and it sells out while it makes me wait. SMH.

First Limited Run purchase. Thanks to everyone for saying you should be logged into Paypal before things go live. Never played Night Trap and excited to get my chance.

It's a unique experience to say the least, so enjoy your first go round with it. LOL

 

So ... with so many orders outstanding, will they combine orders and refund shipping if you ask (nicely)?

Doubtful, as that is just to much to try and process and do. If it's done for one, it needs to be done for all, and that ain't gonna happen. Maybe if someone here has a rapport with anyone on their end, you may be able to get a "favor", but these guys have been pretty behind on answering tickets, so I would say it's better off to not even ask, as it's just more clutter they have to deal with.

 

I separated my orders, so I was lucky enough to get everything I wanted. So I paid shipping twice, and I'm thinking about maybe going back and grabbing the Bunker as well, so then I would be paying 3 times. I'll gladly pay extra shipping cost to get what I want, as well as insuring things are properly sent.

Screwed again. Was logged into everything. Clicked through everything. Sold out before the order finalized. Why the hell are they allowing 2 per customer on these things, when they are popular enough to sell out in 2 minutes? I know LRG doesn't give a crap about their customers. They get their money.


Why do they let people buy 3 copies in a single transaction? Because someone has to scalp this shit on eBay to keep the Limited Run name thriving and exclusive. Duh.

Wanted CE, but didn't know what to do when it disappeared for me. Just ordered PS4 and PC regular versions instead. Had to wait about 30 seconds in line, but managed to get my order through. Early paypal login FTW. Just glad to have gotten a copy. Will be playing this on PC. Not sure if I'll keep or sell my PS4 copy.

Night Trap went on sale at 10am, i check at 10:03 (im at work and had a customer), sold out. Ugh. Ive been waiting months for the special edition of night trap to go live and in 3 friggin min its all gone. I had paypal ready and everything.

Sigh. Anyone manage to get an extra that theyre willing to sell for a reasonably scalped price? Just the special edition for PS4. Not interested in PC or normal edition. Man, I hate that I had to work otherwise I was ready to grab one quick.

Same crap happened with Special Reserve games and their STRAFE special edition. As a physical game collector I wanted them. I just have to forget these sites exist I guess. I just didn't want either game digitally. And knowing a physical exists. I just can't buy it digitally.

Got stuff going on in the afternoon. So I guess I'm out of luck. I hope this company can figure out their crap - not a great first impression.

Wasn't able to get a copy of NT in time thanks to the last-minute changes - was refreshing the store page and by the time the actual product was added back it was too late. Didn't know they were removing the listing for the CE. Went for the normal edition afterward and it was sold out too. I'll try again for a normal edition in the second batch, but with the CE shenanigans this morning I'm fine getting a standard.

 

Also, I noticed the NT CEs are numbered now - if LRG is still looking into scalpers (a la our beloved Chris), they should be able to trace the numbers to orders. Not sure if they care enough, but we'll see what happens.

Also we can all see that Bunker wont sell out too too quickly. I mainly bought it cause it was a FMV game and I was like what the hell add to cart as well.

So there really is a market to scalp these games interesting to note now they've become popular.

Added CE, regular, and Bunker, checked out less than 10s, verified order and qualities on order info, then went back to product pages and refreshed again at 95%.  Within comfortable margins.

 

2.5 minutes is a looooooooong time for something like this.

It's the line some of us got stuck in that takes the longest. Everything is logged in and pre-filled.

They are in a rock and hard place on these because of the reversible cover and CE at the same time.  They have to allow two for the hardcore collectors to have one of each sealed cover.  But since the CE is sealed they have no way to know which cover is in the CE to guarantee an alternate cover normal copy for 1 CE + 1 SE.  So they do 1 CE + 2 normal.

 

The cover variants are really bad mojo and doubly so when combined with a CE.  It would be better if the CE outer box was not sealed and simply contained one of each sealed cover variant.

First time trying to buy from Limited Run Games. Probably will be the last. They killed the CE product on the actual page so I had to backtrack for the URL.

And then because it was my first time ordering, had to set up basic info at the last screen AFTER Paypal. And then after that screen I got the "SOLD OUT" notification. What's the point of waiting in line if I'm not given at least a few minutes of guaranteed product?

You're basically forced/strongly encouraged to save your payment info directly to the site.

Idiotic system.


Why wouldn't you want to setup your information before hand? You know these stuff is going to sell out quick. Stop placing the blame elsewhere and start taking some responsibility.

Seems like we got a LOT of new people in this thread... NT must have a bigger following than I thought.

Anyone know if the FMV Friday bundle was the first to sell out? I actually would have liked that for the bonus cards but 125 in the first batch is just too risky for me...

Not a newbie, but I'm a huge Night Trap fan. Never really bothered with these unless it's a game I really want, and this one fit the bill

I feel like half the people complaining about missing it just haven't had to purchase limited items before.. The only thing I would potentially agree upon, is maybe limiting standard copies to 1 per person in the mornings (even though I like having 2 myself)..

 

The only game I've missed is Jotun, which was my own fault for waiting too long in the morning. Try getting Blizzcon tickets or clothes/shoes, I feel like those are way harder.

 

I do know that eventually it would be harder to get LRG's stuff in the future, so I'm enjoying this while I can

The pissing and moaning in here is unreal. If I can put in two separate orders, make orders at home, on the road, at work, etc then you lot can too. It's not really that hard, and many of you are behaving like children.

Managed to secure a standard edition copy of both games, but ordered them separately due to fear. I was "in line" for Night Trap for over 30 seconds and I felt like I was going to have an anxiety attack, but I still got a copy.

Got my regulat Night Trap game. I was debating getting the CE, but for $60 plus, nah, even scalping it won't give me much profit. For those new to LRG checkouts. You should have the paypal and LRG signins ready so its just click to log out.

I'm now at 9 outstanding titles form LRG yet to ship lmao.  That's just unique titles, not CEs and cover variants.

 

There's going to be a loot truck explosion at the house soon like a Diablo boss.

I was lucky that I managed to get the CE and regular edition of Night Trap.

 

I didn't see the CE available, so I had the regular edition in my cart, waited for the que thing to end to place my order, but instead I go back and refresh the page to see if the CE is on there, sure enough it is, so I add it to my cart. Waite for like 30 seconds again, thinking I might have screwed myself out of any version of the game now, and sure enough I was able to buy both versions.

 

Much easier then the Wonder Boy situation.

 

I just wish that when you have a place in line, and get to the payment part, your copy was actually held for you for something like 60 seconds, like they do on ticketmaster and other sites.

After seeing the bundle 404, I decided to just go for the standard ps4.  By the time I was done in "line" it was sold out.  I had everything pre-logged in too.

Started watching the Night Trap documentary youtube

 

 

Decided to look at the standard PS4 version when it went live.  Figured maybe I'd grab a copy and play it then flip it since I could consider it a rental at that point... no dice.  Ended up in line waiting and then it sold out.  Maybe I'll try again this evening, but kind of figured this is how it would go since I wasn't even going to consider buying this till watching that documentary.   If I can't get a copy, i'll just watch someone else play it on youtube and wait for a Steam sale.   I will give props to the red cover art.  That really is quite nice.

I was fine until the listing for the CE disappeared from the site completely:

https://limited-run-....myshopify.com/

 

The listing was totally gone.  I assumed a new URL was going to appear for the CE, and the old one would not be recycled.  Nothing showed up.  I eventually came to find it had secretly sold out already.  WTF.  Fail.
