It was a shame the postmark was covered in the pic that person posted. I had a suspicion it was possibly LRG behind the whole thing. It would have been nice to get confirmation.


The return address someone posted was for a Goodwill in South Carolina

Which makes it all the more suspicious.

Anyone can just add a fake return address, but the postage does specify that it was mailed from the zip code 29547 in SC. This happens to be ~2.5 hours from LRG headquarters in NC. I'm convinced that LRG are in on it, or that they know the culprit. They can easily tout that it wasn't them, even if they know who it really was.

That’s an understatement of the year I mean there is 90% stock left and it’s been on sale for over 5 hours. Has there been any CE/LE to sell worse then this? I know it’s not the greatest value when it comes to what’s in it but still that blows me away,

There’s 348 of 2000 left.

Oh maybe the joke goes deeper than I thought now that I'm researching it. I stopped paying attention after a day or 2. My bad!

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I'm interested in the upcoming LRG print of V411 HALL-A on the Switch, which hasn't been released yet. 

 

How do I know when it'll come to market, so I don't miss a copy?

Most of their announcements are made via Twitter: https://twitter.com/limitedrungames

 

There's also a Newsletter you can sign up for on their site (check the footer), but people have had issues with not receiving those sometimes. There's a Discord as well, but I can't attest for it since I haven't participated in it.

Thanks, guys. I'm following them on Twitter now, seems more reliable than their newsletter. They kind of bombard with tweets, but I'll stomach it until I snag a copy of V411 HALL-A.

The best way I've found to keep up with LRG is this thread.  The vast majority of LRG releases are discussed here.

VA11 HALL-A would probably be a preorder, wouldn't it?

For the Switch it will be with the exception of any LE/CE version which will be a fixed amount.

the case looks pretty cool, but it'd probably just turn into a dust collector with my other CE boxes

Honestly, the thing I like most about that CE is the case, but I'm not spending $140 plus tax and shipping on it.  Easy pass for me (though I'm sure they will sell out very quickly).

I wonder how well it'll sellout at that price point with two other options for the game.  There are still hundreds of CE's left for Giga Wrecker Alt (PS4) and Nurse Love Syndrome (Vita) as well as standard copies of Alone with You (149 copies) and that Frog Fractions 2 game is dead with hundreds left of it.    Seems like this is the most pileup of unsold stock so far in LRG history.   It wouldn't shock me if the multiple options for this game end up stagnating sales and the sign that other games aren't selling out will give pause to resellers.

 

I had a passing fascination with Lumines (1&2) on the PSP.  The game just didn't click with me as being particularly fun.  So an easy week for me to pass on what's being offered.  Still for the serious fans that can't get enough Lumines, I'm glad there's an option for a physical version.

I'm with you on 'Lumines.' I tried to like both PSP games and the Vita version (I even have Irides on Dreamcast), and they just can't keep my interest. I think it's the puzzle mechanic itself. It's not terribly fun to me. I do like the packaging, etc. of the LRG release.

I got one today and it was also Rabi Ribi (which I too, also had), but the one they sent was the PAX variant. As someone who doesn't go to  PAX, it's nice to have an opportunity to get one (even if just by chance) without having to resort to eBay. 

Must have given the same game to everyone because I also got the same game. I opted for the PS4 mystery game. Still same title though.

Is there a standard only option? I could only find the bundle with the CD on LRG this morning.

Update: The standard version shows up now.

Apparently that's how Sony ships to publishers according to the LRG rep.  Frankly, I get way more loose discs from Amazon and Best Buy than I ever do LRG at this point.

Order submitted by 10:01 and they’ve already created the shipping label for this. I saw it’s supposed to ship next week but that was a quick response and I almost wasn’t ready for it after how slow other things can process including amazon free shipping, LRG, and bestbuy ship to store nowadays...
