Edit - they apparently took down the listing and are now considering doing some standard editions as well.  

 

Was this really up for sale? Everything I've seen makes it seem like it goes on sale on Friday. It wasn't even on my radar today.

It wasn't for sale, but they put up the listings for Friday usually a day or two before.  When they initially put up the listing, they only had one version available for $50 which was the deluxe at 2,800 copies.  They received some pressure on Twitter and ended up taking the listing down and splitting between 1,400 standard and 1,400 deluxe.

Ah, got it. Thanks for clarifying.

I hope I can get a copy of Night Trap for vita. I skipped all the other releases because I really had no interest in the game and honestly really still don't. It is a really bad game. I think it is more because of the novelty and that they were able to port it to vita.

Picked up Night Trap Classic Edition and both copies of Siralim 2.  Will probably pick up Double Switch with the VR game next week so they ship them both in a box.

I tried to get Night Trap standard edition, and I got all the way to the end of the checkout process through Paypal where you review your order, and the game was sold out.  First time I've had that happen.

Wanted to get Night Trap on Vita but it was sold out when I logged in at 0902. Dang. I guess I need try again later tonight.

Yeah, as expected, the standard edition sold out in about a minute. It appears the classic edition is still is still available, but around 50 copies.

Count me in on getting the sold out message for first time ever on Night Trap vita.  It was Paypal fault though, it lag like hell and it kept having to re-log me in over and over for some reason.  Since I didn't want to miss out I caved and got the classic edition since I won't be around for the evening sale.  So this makes 3 CE's I've ordered for Night Trap now. :roll:

Weekly updates pulled from the production updates page, anything that changed from last week is bold.The October flurry ended up almost completely being pushed into November, though they were able to get SMRPG and Night Trap (Switch) out at the end of the month.

 

I think they're being very optimistic with this schedule still, they're really expecting to get a lot done in a season where very little gets done (employees on holiday, etc.). I appreciate that they put in some dates for a lot of the TBD items, though. Even if it's not accurate, having a baseline is good to manage expectations.

 

Now with a spoiler tag to avoid doubling the size of the page:

Yep, same for me, but my browser had some issues, so it looks like I was seconds away from losing out.

Shipping "Now"
  • Golf Story Round 1 (Switch, still listed as "October")

Yeah they missed October completely unless they forgot to send shipping notifications.   Granted I have had a game show up before the shipping notification... but I'm not expecting that to be the case here when they were last waiting for them to show up from the packager.   I'm just hoping the first print run ships this month.   I'm surprised they still have the second print run slated to ship this month when they've had to delay most other switch games by months between ordering and shipping.

I passed on Night Trap Vita. Already have the PS4 copy, and pre-ordered the Switch version. (there was something irresistably compelling about having a copy of Night Trap on a Nintendo system, I lived through that controversy back in the day) But I'm not a Vita completionist, so I feel no need for that version, not with the other copies I already have. I got Siralim 2 for the Vita instead.

I remember seeing (either on this thread or somewhere else) that LRG was going to issue a discount coupon to those that want to keep their Golf Story preorder from them (as a response to being a bit shady on the whole Best Buy/Golf Story issue).  Has anyone here gotten that yet? Do you have to do anything to get it or were they just going to send it out eventually to everyone that bought the game from them?  I was just wondering if I should contact them about the issue, I could definitely make use of that coupon in the future.

I'm still torn on getting Night Trap. May try again after missing it this morning but also I have it on PS4 and switch so it's not a huge loss if I miss it. Biggest thing I want is the CD soundtrack... So if I miss it again someone who gets it better rip it for me 😁

I haven't received a code.  I'd imagine while they are still accepting cancellations (which that time table is unclear) they'll issue codes.

Is Night Trap ever coming digitally for Vita or is this the only way to get it? Same for Double Switch PS4.

Grabbed Siralim and Night Trap Classic this morning and Night Trap vanilla this evening. Was afraid of screwing around on my slow phone this morning and missing out on both Night Traps so I made two orders. Vanilla went really fast both times. I wish Sony would recognize that there is still a consistent demand for Vita games in North America. I know it may be limited demand in terms of numbers of people, but judging how fast almost every Vita release sells out it certainly is consistent demand.

I mean, selling 2k copies isn't really enough for them to bother with.

 

Even the Japanese niche games from bigger publishers (e.g. Atlus) hit like 30k copies for small retail runs (e.g. first print of Etrian Odyssey).

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that starting with this order I was charged an incorrect tax amount on my order.  I live in PA and would normally be charged a 6% sales tax, which is what my prior few orders have been charged.  But starting with this order I was also charged an Allegheny County sales tax of an additional 1%.  The thing is I don't even live near 100 miles of Allegheny County.  Reading the LRG forums it appears that other PA residents have been incorrectly charged this tax and even someone from Illinois said they were charged Cook County and Chicago Municipal tax despite not living in those tax jurisdictions.

 

If you are getting charged sales tax on your orders I would suggest reviewing your order summary to make sure you are being charged the correct amount (should be located under the shipping charge).

 

I opened a help desk ticket where they should be able to rectify this overcharge.
