Yea, I don't really care much about the NES / N64 / PS1 games much, but SNES still hold up well.

Yeah, the lack of consistent digital versions, games being de-listed, spotty or non-existent backwards compatibility, and lack of unified libraries (Nintendo would have you buy the same SNES game digital on every platform because they're all separate!) is way more than enough for me to stick to physical for everything that I can for as long as I can. When the time comes that digital distribution is the only option going forward, then that's out of my hands. At least for now I can control how much of the aforementioned BS I'm willing to subject myself to; and I can guarantee that the games that currently exist in physical format are permanently available for my use in whatever manner I wish to use them in.

Anybody have any luck with any customer support this year?    Got an order with missing and damaged items.  No response to Twitter DM or support desk ticket for 2 weeks now.

Any updates on Spelunky’s release? That’s the one LRG game I really, really want a physical copy of.

None for quite a while. It's still listed on their site, but their upcoming releases haven't been updated since the cartridge drama a few weeks ago.

Their support is really backed up because 2/3 of their staff left in the last month. Might be worth reaching out again, but it's not that they're ignoring your ticket specifically.

I messaged them about incorrect taxes on a few orders a little over a week ago and they finally got back to me yesterday.  If its been two weeks for you, I would probably reach out again.

I have read from others that it can take weeks to months to get orders with missing or damaged items handled. They probably don't handle those immediately because they take a lot more time to deal with. I messaged them with a minor issue of missing points on Tuesday and received a response yesterday ( within 2 days). It is possible they are just handling the easier responses first.

 

I would message them again through support desk, but you will likely be waiting for sometime unfortunately :(

Iconoclasts is a definite for today.  Think I will also be getting Proteus to keep the Vita collection going.

yea those CE's are unimpressive.  Just grabbing a standard vita Iconoclast along with PS4 Celeste today and I'm done.

 

late to party on this, but seeing what they're using the vita carts allocation for, even I have to admit Josh sounds pretty whiny with his whole if people gave us some of their allocation to use tweet.

Well I missed the standard copy of Iconoclasts for vita this morning. Sold out before I finished checkout.

This is the first time in a long time that I missed a morning Vita game.

Shipping updates for anyone interested (updates in bold):

 

Spoiler

 

Since I last posted (around the new year) they cleared the following games from the queue:

  • Kingdom: New Lands (PS4/PC/Switch) + Vinyl
  • Late Shift (PS4)
  • Phantom Breaker (PS4 CE/Vita CE)
  • GALF (NES)
  • To the Top (PSVR)
  • 8 Bit Adventure Anthology (PS4)
  • Another World (PS4/Vita)

So overall, they've increased the number of releases pending shipping over the past two weeks. Most of the stuff that slid was originally slated for December, but it's also worth noting that the Outlast Switch games all moved back a month. I don't see this pattern changing any time soon; even with two shipping queues they seem to be losing ground. Reasonably, I'd expect everything in the spoiler tag above to actually ship out 1-2 months later than noted aside from the top few in January and anything they bump to the top (which they appear to be doing with Jak).

If true that's pretty shit as real problems should be given priority and not completely ignored for weeks.  I opened a new ticket, hopefully the first one was just fell through the cracks due to their turnover.

in their defense I believe they recently lost some of their more tenured support people from what I recall

PSA: If you live in PA or IL, you may have been charged an incorrect tax rate by LRG.  You may have been charged an incorrect county tax in PA (Allegheny County) or IL (Cook or Chicago Ridge).  These taxes are only valid if you live (or have your packages shipped) to addresses in those counties but people have been getting hit by those taxes despite not living in those counties.  Go into your order history and check every order back to about 11/1/2018 (that's around when it first started happening to me).  If you have been affected by this, open a support ticket and they will send you a link to a form where you can enter each affected order # and that amount due back that was incorrectly taxed.  The form has made it a pretty easy process to get this money refunded.

Yeah, I opened a ticket 15 days ago and never heard back, but it wasn't a 911, as it was about my rewards tickets. So I'm just gonna send them with tracking, and hopefully they'll contact me once received, but I'm sure that's why I didn't hear back, as it was low priority.

Thanks for the heads up.  Looks like I was overcharged $5.34.  Ticket opened.

I had planned on using my tickets to pickup both Vita games from today's sale.

 

I opened a support ticket 8 days ago hoping to bring it to their attention. I mailed my tickets out last Friday.

 

Yesterday I still had not heard anything back about receiving my tickets or about my support ticket, so I sent them a DM on Twitter.

 

After I missed out on both games this morning, I sent another DM on Twitter and updated my support ticket. They finally responded on Twitter and said they'd look into it. 20 minutes later they had "just received" my tickets minutes ago and put the games on hold for me.

Yeah, I had planned to ship mine off awhile back as well to make todays sale, but of course I git busy and never did. Now i'm in catch up mode, so I'll ship them off within a few days, and try to catch a game in coming weeks. Hopefully by then they get their shit together.

They get their shit together and we will eventually get our shit. I see a theme here. A lot of shit going on or is there?

I'm seriously thinking of passing on Proteus. It doesn't have quite the critical response I would hope for. It also doesn't really seem like the kind of game that I would care about taking on the go for the Vita. And I know that it's available digitally on all sorts of different stores, for very low prices. So yeah, probably not going to bother with that one.

 

The only real question is do I bother springing for the Vita edition of Iconoclasts, or should I just put in a pre-order for the Switch edition? If I want the Vita version, I need to get in now. If I just want the Switch edition, I can wait a week and put in an order alongside Tacoma. (which I probably will wake up early for)

 

Decisions, decisions...

How fast did Iconoclasts PS4 sell out at 9am?



#22136 Gamwhiz  

Posted 18 January 2019 - 11:05 PM

Iconoclasts vita sold out in about 1.5 minutes, jesus. Added to cart immediately on drop, got on paypal, absently clicked back to LRG in a different tab out of curiosity to see how much it had dropped from 50%, saw it was at 5%, did a double take, completed order in 20seconds and got told the order was out of stock and I was SOL.

 

Sucks, but what do you do. Seems these last few vita releases are going to be a real battle. Was expecting 10 minutes or so of leeway, seein' as that's what I saw reported for the morning drop.

I had the expedited order process and the text of the 6 digit code took literally 20 seconds to process and accept. By that point same thing happened to me so I finalized my Proteus Vita order, saw the CE edition for $49.99 was still in stock and then fired a separate order for that Pre-Order in. They definitely got me for 2x shipping charges on this but on the positive they will ship out separately and at least both are confirmed.... I guess..

 

what shenanigans and a blood bath today's releases were....

The morning batch didn’t last 10 minutes. It was 2 minutes max, but probably closer to the 90 seconds you mentioned.

I'm surprised the tech demo Proteus sold so well. Maybe there are more folks going for a full set than expected. It's a shame after selling so well in the AM they kept the limit at 2 for the PM batch.

For me it was a bit of speculation. Any late-in-the-lifecycle, limited release may be hard to get in the future. That basically goes for any release, but Proteus seems obscure enough that I don't know if it will show up much later.
