I decided to go for it. The collector's edition went live right on the minute, standard took almost 30 seconds to go live. I had to wait in the shopify queue for about 10 seconds, completed order with autofill, and I still had over a minute (probably 75 seconds) to refresh both vita pages to watch as the counters dropped to 0.

Which part slowed you down? I have never tried paypal to pay, just straight credit card via checkout, was that the slow part?

The Shopify “Wait in Line” process literally took 2 minutes before I was allowed to continue...

This happened to me both this morning and now.

I thought I saw someone on here mention that the vita version of COTM had some sort of exclusive content or something like that?

 

cant find info on it but does it?

 

Edit: here it is I found it earlier in this thread:

 

" This physical Vita release has a new trophy list, which the PS4 release lacks - so Vita is getting some level of special treatment."

same, I only use multiple tabs for releases since I want to use shipping costs for more than one game. but I never use PayPal cause it's an extra step of verification afaik

So as long as you're logged in on each tab the cart of the final tab will have all your items displayed correct?

I don't think any part went slower than it could have. I did have to keep refreshing the page as I was getting the regular edition, but that shouldn't have added much time. Perhaps I should just go for the collector's edition of games like this in the future.

I input my credit card info and hit complete order and got a sold out message so I have no idea. I must have terrible luck or a bad browser or something because I've missed several of the big releases lately despite rabidly refreshing waiting until 10. If I have under 30 seconds to complete orders I honestly don't know if it's worth it at this point. I guess I'll try again at 6 and if not just go with a regular copy. Just the world's way of telling me not to drop 60 bucks on a $10 digital game haha.

Your mistake was having to input your credit card info to begin with.

so about 2.5 months later I finally got my Blind Boxes. What a horrible experience taking this long on in stock items and I had to create a trouble ticket asking for status when so many others received their orders. I had no extra items, just 2 ps4 and 2 vita blinds.

 

Here are the crap results, I'm sure since it took forever I got shafted on leftover blind boxes.

 

/SIGH Double Bit.Trip must resist buying this crap next year.

Looks like you got at least one gold card, there. Not much, but I think it has some value.

Recently found out about LRG, bullshit about games selling out at the speed of light and more. I was able to get the COTM Classic Edition for the Vita this morning, though. Refreshed as soon as the timer hit zero. Paid with debit card, everything cleared, and got email confirmation almost immediately after finishing up. It’ll be a nice companion to my Ritual of the Night Alchemist’s Treasure Edition.

Aw that stinks. I guess I got lucky with minimal 'wait in line' time on 1 tab. Definitely try multiple tabs/browsers next time, some will go through much faster.

I feel you. Last year I tried 3 PS4 blind boxes, sounded like fun with a chance at some rare games I missed.

 

It wasn't fun.

 

At all.

 

I got 2 games I already had, and 1 game I didn't want. I broke even selling one, took an $8 loss on the second, and I've been trying to dump the last one (Nova 111) for 14 months lol.

 

Never again!

Yeah, after that first year of blind boxes, I swore that practice off, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. For first timers, consider this a lesson learned, for anyone who came back a second time.............. :dunce:

I’ve been following LRG releases since day one with Breach & Clear and also by this thread. In my opinion, they’ve always been a scam company, and to me it’s clear as day today. Very poor indie releases, products that ‘sell out’ in seconds yet are available down the road in blind boxes, cardboard cutouts for collectors edition extras, huge prices on some CEs, Jak & Daxter being sold individually, poor customer service, and ship times months after what was promised. And that isn’t touching on the topic of their collusion with the reseller market.

Is there anyway to hide or remove all the rewards notifications on their site? I know I can close them but as soon as you refresh, they pop right back up. I tried to order the Vita Bloodstained CE but my work computer does not like those kinds of pop ups (no diff if I use Chrome or Explorer, internet filter is not friendly to them). I wasn't able to get in on the morning batch since my train was delayed and mobile is too slow for me and I ended up missing it on the evening batch because my browser kept locking up on the pop ups... :-/

While I'm a fan of LRG, in no way am I blind to some of the shit they do, and like my comment on the "blind boxes", I'll call them out whenever it needs to happen. I'll also defend them in certain cases, when certain things are said from a baseless area with no actual facts.

 

While many of the issues you mention are true, many or subjective at best and some are just not true. Up until this Vita production deadline issue came in to play, LRG did pretty well in having proper inventory. Now, Sony has not allowed for as much as once requested, and with interest ramping up at the end of life, Vita games are in higher demand than ever, with less inventory. LRG wanted and ordered more, and Sony said NO, as they almost had to cancel some final titles due to this issue.

 

They've had some of the best indie titles in the industry, and continue to get more each week. This is something that can't even be argued, as who's to say what's good and what's not. They sell out of each title, so even if they are low quality, someone is willing to pay for them, so that fact shows otherwise.

You could try one of the many browser plugins that allow you to block content. ublock origin is available for chrome or firefox, you should easily be able to block the rewards notifications. I'm not sure I have seen them though, all I get is a little tab in the lower right with the number of points.

 

Or if you wait a few more weeks there will be no more rewards program anyway.

Yeah I have uBlock but I always disable it on their site- uBlock is kinda funky with some aspects of websites and I'm too lazy to figure out hwo to customize it to work how I want it to, so I avoid having it enabled on LRG or any other site where ads are enough of an issue for me to have it enabled. 

 

I just hope this isn't an issue during AV Wii U.

Yeah, those damn ad blockers.........don't get me started. LOL

 

They often block any and everything, so while it may block what you don't want, it may block what you do. Everytime I find one that seems to work, within weeks, it's doing crazy shit. I use them anyway, as I hate ads, but they do require work and even playing with the settings doesn't guarantee it will work properly.

 

As for AV being an issue, unless we just see tons of people wanting to support this title due to the issues that have been caused by Badlands, you should be fine. Like I said, I supported AV a few times for support to the creator to help with his son's medical needs. To see that didn't happen, is making me consider another purchase just to say "sorry" for the current situation. LRG deserves to be helped as well, as no one should lose that kind of money just trying to run a business.

While I love to crap on LRG for their shipping times and practices — I think most would agree that’s some well deserved poo— I can’t agree with the blind box criticism. They’re pretty open about the percentage chance of getting any particular game, with most of them being “commons.”

Definitely. Blind Box is a fool's game if they are expecting to get something good. Odds are such that it makes more sense just to buy a particular game off Ebay. What I want to know is what will be the odds of getting the super duper ultra rare, not many copies produced, Breach and Clear in a blind box 20 years from now? There were only "1500" copies made you know.

For sure! No criticism from me, I knew the odds up front and took a chance. Figured why not try it once... but once was enough hah.

Blind boxes are probably their way of getting rid of extra stock.

How long does it normally take for LRG to ship your games after printing the shipping label? It's been almost a month and I still haven't gotten my games yet. Contacting the CS is no help at all.
