I kinda wanted the doom soundtrack but eh, I doubt I'd listen to it and I don't like to pay over $20 for records.

I like to support artists. I'll never pay money for a download and CDs feel cheap. Records have a nice substantial size and heft and usually some nice artwork.

This Friday's Mega Bundle is still available with 47% stock left.  Mega Bundles were started to make it easier for people to order everything going on sale with one button press.  Its pretty obvious that everyone that wanted everything has gotten it by now.  LRG should now just release the unsold stock from the Mega Bundle so more copies of Giga Wrecker Alt CE (Switch) and The First Tree can go to people that only want those titles.  My opinion of course, unless they want the Mega Bundle to sit around for a very long time.

Ended up missing all the $5 soundtrack blind boxes so if anyone got an extra let me know!

Hey guys, I have Saturday Morning RPG and Curses 'N Chaos both brand new and sealed for the Vita that I'm looking to sell, but I had a question first. Both of these have hole punches in the bar code. I'm 99% sure they were from someone who worked for PlayStation that used to sell them to a store nearby my house and was wondering as collector's how much would the hole punches drop the value you for you if any at all.

That's going to be heavily dependent on the individual. For me, condition is paramount--to an almost maddening degree lol--so I wouldn't pay $.05 for those. There are, however, a surprising amount of people that buy this stuff that are not too fussed about condition. So the price will absolutely go down from the non-hole punched average, but you'll definitely still be able to sell 'em. I'd find the average eBay sold price for new copies and drop the price by about $10. That might not be enough, but it's a good way to test the waters.

I don't personally know any collectors that would buy a promotional-hole-punched copy. If I extrapolate based on that, then a serious collector might find little to no value in a promo copy.

 

I'm sure someone will buy them though, just figure out the going rate for a retail copy and try to get as close to that amount as possible.

Just got Sundered.  They didn't even really try with that rear cover art.  Pretty much blank with the game's title.

I saw that, too. I've felt that a few developers haven't been trying hard with their artwork, especially how many have a folded insert that is pretty much blank. It really makes me wish LRG was either 1) pushing developers to do complete and proper artwork (especially considering the increased cost), or 2) show us upfront what rear and insert artwork looks like before we purchased.

But considering how quickly every game sells out, they have zero motivation to change anything.

I personally wouldn't buy them at all, but some people don't care. If you drop the going price by 20% you should get offers.

 

Just don't try to sell them without disclosing that the UPCs are hole-punched; any buyer protection would side with the buyer in that case.

No doubt. Anytime I receive an offer I make sure to say that. Good looking out though, fellow CAG.

I did see that it's not really "blank" like I thought - there is some kind of art/design on there, it is just very hard to make out.  I am guessing maybe it's meant to be some kind of continuation of the front artwork.

Finally got my last 2018 order from LRG (Battle Chef CE + Rabi Ribi). Every now and then they really seem to step up their shipping game, but then they go back to multiple weekly releases and get buried again.

Come on LRG - go get Full Throttle for PS4 :-)

I'm in the camp that wouldn't care about a hole punch, but also the camp that ain't paying above retail for any release so... Maybe there's an answer in there.

I finally got a switch so now I can look at LRG switch games when they come out. So far all I want is golf story which I got one off ebay for a decent price and danmaku. Sadly I want danmaku also as I am a huge schmup fan but I cant ever afford 70 bucks, Id kill for that one but my budget is limited to like 40 bucks for a game.

I bought Abe's Oddysee for Vita off of Ebay and received a hole-punched copy. I didn't know what it was at the time and didn't complain or return it. So... if you're a crappy person, you can find a sucker. But don't be that crappy person, please.

Shouldn't copies like that not even be getting out for resell, I seem to recall someone over at lrg mentioning something about it at some point

Is there a way to see what cards were made for Shantae?

Keep in mind that Best Buy has a few switch LRG games (Golf Story being one) so you can avoid the 'bay (Unless its cheaper there or you like the LRG artwork more!)  I actually like getting them at Best Buy personally because I still have GCU

Yeah, those are supposed to be for Sony only, they aren't supposed to be selling them.

There used to be a Sony call center in my town. When Sony closed it down a couple of years ago, all the games for employees to "check out" were just handed out to them in a free for all. It wasn't long before every pawn shop and gamestop in town were flooded with those copies. I wouldn't doubt many hit ebay, too. Perhaps something similar happened?

It'll be mentioned on the product page on the LRG site if it's going to be available at Best Buy.

Last month my BB had 40 copies of Yooka-Laylee. Today, I found three. I doubt they sold that many, but I haven't seen the price drop. Is BB sending to other stores, tossing them, or is YL actually selling at $50?

They are either backstocking to remove the optics of a TONS OF GAMES NOT SELLING, or they are being fulfilled with online orders. From my understanding Best Buy -like Target- often have retail store employees fulfilling online orders, rather than say a "distribution center". While there is still the need for some sort of warehouse or distribution center, having the stores fulfill orders is a fantastic logistics idea.
