I actually opened a ticket about this. If they give me the run around, then I might tell them to Fuck off and cancel it. I got it as a Christmas gift and a CE for myself, was kinda surprised it was sold out immediately after I checked out though. Didn't think it would be this popular ha.

 

While on the subject, they say it can take 1-3 months from initial sale. Does this mean they'll still only start shipping a month AFTER they close pre-orders or will they ship it (hopefully) around a month later from today? Otherwise, this whole Christmas gift situation might not work regardless.

 

the way LRG works you will not get it before Christmas you will be lucky if you get it by valentines

Based on the current shipping queue, it will likely be March next year at the earliest unless it gets prioritized in the queue like RCG/Celeste/Jak. I keep a running tally every two weeks of the shipping backlog, it was at 112 SKUs as of last week and their shipping velocity is 15-20 a month (which will likely decrease as the shipping folks take holiday time off).

No way you're getting that by Christmas.  My guess is the Feb/March time frame.

Thanks, I was worried about as much and had already accepted it was probably too tight of a window so I'll repurpose into birthday or something. I've only bought from them once before but that was when they were still in their like teens for game numbers I think and don't recall the experience. They sound like fucking assholes from their FAQs though.

Too generous... probably by the summer though.

The jak CE extra was like a box thing that went around all the CE and bound them together I thought. I don't think I'm making that up.

Best Buy may be receiving a very small number of copies of this game with alternate cover art. Best Buy has the ability to not move forward with their order, as it has not been finalized yet. Wait at your own risk.

 

This is on the bottom of the Switch page only, so they probably won't get the PS4 version.

Does Blaphemous for PS4 run any better than the Switch version (I only ask because I heard one of the Bloodstained games runs terrible on Switch but is fine on Ps4).  I am trying to determine which is the better version.

 

 

When its cross platform always buy the ps4 version over the switch. Unless a switch is the only way you can play a game at all.

 

Switch is fine for first party titles or the occasional exclusive but Id never buy a cross platform title for mine. It has the weakest hardware, the worst online experince and in general less developer support. Not to mention games in general tend to cost more on it.

Guys, calm down. He meant Christmas 2020. The title will get there in plenty of time.

Did some googling... the info at launch was for a Jak 4 mockup box.

 

Maybe you are thinking of another game/series?

Quick question for the experts Fairy Fencer F for the Switch....

 

today is the last day to officially "pre-order" but I thought I saw something somewhere that there will be additional copies available later and I wanted to try to save on shipping (I am planning on grabbing the Mary Skelter) 

 

Anyone have insight if that is the case? 

 

Will either of these releases be available through Best Buy?

Thanks for the insight - I thought I had read it would be available for a 30 day window.  Obviously that is not the case.  I think I will run the risk and wait to order them both together.  Thank you for the reply!

Remember when LRG was preserving digital only games? Well now they preserve alternate cover art

Yeah... This is just silly. At least it's only a distributed game, and not one of their numbered releases. I can't imagine this selling well at all... I'm curious to know how small the print run ends up being.

One of the selling points LRG made in a response on Twitter is that their release will include the latest patch. Um...thank you LRG?

Tetris Effect is currently $20 new at BestBuy and Gamestop.  Not too bad a deal if it's your thing.   I can't remember what I saw on GS but BB had the option to buy it online.   it's nothing I want or need, but it's an option for those that maybe want a copy but don't care about the other stuff.

 

I think it's past time to let go of what LRG was planned to be back before Breach and Clear released on vita.  They've broken pretty much all of those plans and adjusted as a company and is currently something different.  Now they are just another publisher at this point except much slower in bringing things to market.  Maybe we can talk about the company without it seeming like some personal attack.  They are a business.  They have a large staff to support.  So they will continue to sell a lot of stuff to try and meet those demands.  We have a first with the second run of Night Trap.  We've had other stores selling games on LRG since the SRG partnership.   And digital games stopped being preserved around the time of Rainbow Moon when they shipped too close to launch and so didn't have patches and stuff.   They are a mass producer of limited print games now.   Really it was inevitable they'd lose that indie grass roots thing they had with Breach and Clear if they grew beyond the two man team... and of course that happened.  So we have reprints of common cheap classic console games and now a reprint of a regular retail release game.   Times change.  Your view of what the company is needs to adjust to see them as they are now not as how you wish they were.

haha... "Last chance ever to get it physically if it sells out everywhere."   That is just unbelievable.
