To the top on sale now

As of now it says only 6 To the Tops left. Did LRG just announce it in the email sent at 10:30PM EST the night before it went on sale less than 12 hours later at 10:00AM on a Wednesday? 

 

I'm glad it didn't sell out. I work at 10am and 6pm on Wednesdays. If I didn't I wouldn't be able to afford LRG games. It really helps when there's some warning though so I can schedule being at a computer uninterrupted at work. I really don't appreciate just getting an email less than 12 hours before. I was already asleep when the email went out and was lucky it didn't sell out at 6pm. I'm such a crazy completionist if I miss one PSVR release I will give up buying their PSVR games. 

 

I hope I'm wrong. Maybe they announced it earlier and I'm griping about nothing.

I think they announced it last week, but it was like a small blurb on their Twitter.  They didn't actually put a listing up on their site until late last night or early this morning.

Honestly, their huge shipping backlog should be reason enough to lower the amount of releases over the next few months so that they can catch up, yet they are still releasing 3 to 4 new items each week. They clearly do not have the support staff to send out all those orders in a reasonable time.

I was under the impression early orders of Golf Story would ship out right away (early October) but now it looks like 1.5 to 2 months after order.


It’s really getting bizarre how they won’t hire enough employees, at least temporary employees, to help with shipping. It’s now literally hurting their bottom line as I held off on ordering some recent games due to the long delays. I know there has to be a lot of other customers with the same mindset.

Have you tried to hire quality employees in the current market?  It's super tough, even if you pay good wages.  Not only that, trying to train people in a job that requires a degree of accuracy and care is not super easy when you have a backlog of work to be done.  In any event, LRG mentioned that they have four full timers and four temps right now on shipping.

Yeah, this 100%^

 

I used to run a shipping warehouse and getting quality help was like the riddle of the Sphinx. LOL Management would throw bodies at the situation, more pay, hell, we even hired friends of one of the buyers, and still, shit staff again and again. Good help is hard to find, is a thing for a reason, as it's beyond true. For LRG to just throw bodies at their current situation, that would not end well, unless by some miracle they hire some A+ staff, and that's next to impossible.

didn't the last time they hire temporary help for shipments, a lot of orders were kind of screwed up upon receipt?

Not sure, but I remember early on they had a shipping company that screwed up a bunch of orders and they ended up having to go to a different company.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this was what he was thinking of, as it's the only shipping issue I've known LRG to have had, outside of their current slow service of course. LOL

 

That place was a prime example of how good help is hard to find, as it was a fulfillment warehouse, that's what they do, and they where complete shit at it. It boggles my mind how so many places take money for a service, and provide peanuts(if lucky), in return.

I'm rather surprised that Rabi Ribi isn't getting a CE.

It is getting a separate bundle package if you want the contents of the PC version CE that was released a couple of years ago.  I believe they said there will be 500 units of the bundle and the bundle itself is $40 not including the game which is another $30.

Wow that’s really interesting. Thanks for the info.

Is it ok if I don’t want the European version?

Is it ok if I want a physical Vita version?

It is highly like the US version also has all the Updates on it. 

 

Plus EU never got the physical Vita version.

Oh heads up, I was over on the LRG Forums and stumbled across a post that said the greatest PS4 game ever released by LRG is being pushed to December.  There's some deal with the company and some special way that it's getting advertised.  I also read that it's going to be a last minute style reveal but that we should at least know to expect the big reveal with some advance (just no clues as to what it is because of the NDA involved).

Yep, it does, as I read it a few days ago on LRG Twitter when someone else stated the EU version and the price.

They have started using a new white box for their CE. This box is a much thinner lighter weight cardboard. My Night Trap for Switch arrived today in a box that was crushed to hell. This is my first time receiving a badly crushed package from usps.

Somehow, miraculously, the game itself was not damaged or bent.

It looks like Battle Chef Brigade (Switch version only) will be the next LRG game carried at Best Buy.  Sounds like BB will only be selling 5000 copies of it so they may go fast if you want to wait for BB to put it up for sale.

 

I will say the Battle Chef Brigade CE looks pretty awesome with the steelbook and apron, among other things.  I'll be going for that tomorrow along with just about everything else.

Just noticed it's the same price for both switch and ps4 versions of Battle Chef Brigade.  Is this a new thing?

 

I never really paid attention to the prices before because I always assumed they were different

 

Also, yay for Rabi-Ribi coming with soundtrack CDs with each game.

They said on Twitter that the Switch version was $15 over digital to justify Switch cart production cost, then they were asked about the PS4 version being more and didn't respond. There wasn't a big backlash or anything, so I think it might be a standard practice moving forward.

I was able to get Rabi Ribi fairly easy. Although this is the first purchase with taxes.

I got Rabi-Ribi for Vita  - when I added to the cart I got the dreaded "You are in line" message, and it seemed to linger there for a while, but the order went through smoothly after that.  Sold out in less than 2 1/2 minutes.
