Yeah, LRG pays just fine, but the fact that it took them so long to offer a proper updated shipping schedule shows how they can be behind in regards to proper operating logistics.

 

I'm in the heart of busy season so I'm more out of it than usual but are the old rewards tickets expiring or something? 

Nothing I've seen or read, and I'm still getting tickets with my orders from awhile back, so I can't see them ending it anytime soon. I'm looking to cash my tickets in as it's near the end of the road for me, and I held out hoping some unique rewards would be offered. Having seen their new system on the site, I now know that ain't happening, so I'm trying to get my free game now rather than later. Since I have never used the service, I asked about replies and such, and that kind of opened up the discussion your now seeing. So just customers giving their thoughts on email issues and how best to get the free game(or the 24.99 credit).

LRG just posted the Iconoclasts CE contents. It will be a pass for me. $20 for a soundtrack and poster doesn't do it for me. Saves me some money by getting the base game.

Either way, it will still sell out in minutes because the game is awesome.

Okay, so, like, does the manual actually fit the version you buy and go in the case, or is it one of those oversized pack in type deals? If it's the latter, who in the world has ever thought that was a good idea? Haha

Well, the standard game shows a manual, so I'll assume that fits, as otherwise it's more work for them and cost. They did have one of those oversized awhile back I believe, but it fit the bigger included case, and then the smaller went in the standard version, but who knows? Either way, an easy pass at this point, as I'm just getting standard everything to finish my set at this point.

I'll be getting Celeste when Iconoclasts launches an then I'll be done with them for a while.  I did just get an update that Golf Story and Broken Age so they are finally starting to catch up.

I have no words for this at all lmao. It does technically make sense, though, in that LRG items have a very healthy eBay presence, and that is the only way to get one of those CEs now! Haha

Let the court record show that srocky26 is purposely provoking and antagonizing the Ebay lunatics and LRG doomsayers that he dislikes immensely.  :)  :bomb:

Looks like BestBuy is getting some games before they're on sale now? BB's release date is 2/8 and LRG commented it would be available from their site "at a later date".

Cool maybe I can preorder before my GCU runs out.

Just a reminder that Fangamer will have copies of the Celeste CE up at a later date, so there's still another chance to get one without paying Ebay prices.

Looks like BestBuy is getting some games before they're on sale now? BB's release date is 2/8 and LRG commented it would be available from their site "at a later date".

This is the "unannounced" game mentioned in their original Best Buy email. In typical LRG form, the details about this release were posted by Josh in a reply to a twitter thread about Battle Chef Brigade, and not ever announced via the LimitedRunGames account itself:

This wasn't the unannounced title we mentioned, though. Best Buy will have that one in store before we even sell it, so no chance anyone buys it from us without knowing Best Buy has/had it.

Link: https://twitter.com/...531755597139969

In that same twitter thread, he goes on to clarify:

We wanted to help the developer get this particular game out in some capacity this year because it is an important milestone for the game, but our schedule for our site was backed up until February or March.

Just got an email from Limited Run confirming the release of Super Meat Boy.

 

 

We're excited to announce that the acclaimed classic, Super Meat Boy, is getting a physical release through us on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. All three platforms will be available to order from our site at a later date within the next few months (no date is set in stone yet)

Is the cover art the same for both? Only saw 1 cover.

Interesting. I see they make mention of a previous publisher for this, this wouldn’t by chance be the lawsuit game that was due for Wii U?

Oh man, I'm most likely in for at least a standard Vita copy of Super Meat Boy even though I played the game through PS+ years ago. That's still my proudest platinum trophy and the game is a must-play.

 

I'm afraid of what the Collector's Edition will include...if there are Meat Boy and Bandage Girl plushes, I'm not sure I could resist.

Someone on Twitter zoomed in on the games in the background of the Super Meat Boy post and Axiom Verge for the WiiU is on the right edge of the shelf.

Been wanting a Vita physical of this game. Really pumped it's going to happen. Anyone who platinums SMB has some pretty good gaming skills.

I noticed Neonwall for PSVR has text that says "This is the fourth title in Limited Run's VR series. The spine tag on this release is labeled LR-VR04."

 

So Pixel Gear was #1, To the Top was #2, but what was #3?

race the sun is #3

 

 

Race the Sun, our third PlayStation VR release (LR-VR03), on physical disc for the PlayStation 4. Limited to 2,000 copies available worldwide. Region free.

Please be aware that this item was originally released on November 23rd but was not initially part of our PSVR lineup. Sony changed their art guidelines to require the PSVR headset icon on the spine, which put us in the position where, for the sake of consistency, we needed to make it part of the VR lineup. We are selling the leftovers today to allow people who missed it to order it.

Just curious but what does this mean..? I remember there being talk of a Wii U release of AV but that they couldn't find any retailer to sell it so they were looking for alternatives. But that was more than a year ago, possibly longer.

There was a big guessing game awhile back, as LRG was supposed to release a Wii U title, and many guessed AV. So this is just confirmation of that I suppose, but they said they will probably lose money on the release. Something happened behind the scenes, and funds got stole, there's a lawsuit, yadda, yadda, and yadda.

I officially have the worst luck when it comes to LRG.

 

My original shipment of Cosmic Star Heroine for vita got lost during forwarding when I moved. (last time I ever forward my mail through USPS. Fuck that shit)

 

and now my replacement shipment was 'delivered at mailbox' today and theres no package in my mailbox. 

 

I guess I am just destined to never own this game. So frustrated.

I've had that happen a few times over the years, and your package may still show up within a few days. It may have gone to the wrong route, and instead of marking it as wrong or re-routed, they may put delivered, when it hasn't been. It could have also went to the wrong address, in which case me get corrected. As they may bring it to you, or give it back to USPS and have them do it. I've had more packages like that show up over the years, than I've had actually ones go truly missing.
