Missed it. Are they doing the usual thing where there's another batch 8 hours later?

 

Yes, but you are going to need to be lightning fast if you want the Vita game.  The first batch is always much larger and lately the second batch on Vita stuff has gone in under a minute if that.

Definitely second batch has been going way faster than in the past. I used to not stress too much if I didn't get something in the first batch because I knew it wouldn't be hard to get it in the second. Certainly not the case any more. Good to see LRG still think it's a good idea to limit their remaining Vita titles to 2 per person when they are all selling out in 2 mins or less in every instance, not counting Teslagrad. It's safe to say every remaining Vita title they release will sell out easily even if it's a 1 per person limit.

If this sells out in under 2 minutes I can imagine how fast something like Metal Slug 3 will sell out.  Good God.

 

Has a new date for Metal Slug 3 been announced yet?

Nope, just a vague sometime in August.

Hopefully they combine it with another Vita release that day, as paying shipping for one game goes against the CAG in me. LOL

 

But I guess it's probably for the best, since these last few games are selling out in minutes(or under). I guess trying to get two games in the cart to save on shipping may be tempting fate, and probably best left alone I guess.

I'd prefer they do one at a time due to the whole time issue you mention. It's crazy how just a few seconds can make or break getting the order in before stuff sells out, and that is assuming a person is checking out pretty quick and knows what they are doing.

I'm just hoping they put both Damascus Gear games at the same time. I think those are the last Vita physical copies I want. Pretty much done with 3DS purchases too with getting Wario Ware Gold recently on sale. Just ready to be done buying for both systems.

I never got my Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon physical from LRG. It says unfulfilled. They shipped for a lot of people already.

 

Is this normal? I did an order that also included The Messenger, so I'm wondering if they are waiting til they get The Messenger to ship both in one shipment?

if you bought both games under the same order, then yes you will need to wait until the Messenger releases. I the Messengers gets released sometime end of this month July

That's normal. They don't ship until everything in the order is ready.

This Friday only, an actual small deal from LRG:

 

Friday only, buy Rogue Legacy and Double Switch for Switch in the "Double Switch Day Bundle" and save $5 off the bundle ($55 total instead of $60).  This may be the first time I've seen an actual deal offered by LRG.

With Best Buy selling some LRG titles, anybody think they'll sell Transistor as well? I wanted to bite, but with a grand total of $50 I'm not so sure.

LRG stated that they will always say whether or not any outside retailer will be stocking their games on the product information page. This announcement was made after best buy started picking up their games to sell in store. The first game best buy picked up was not announced and LRG allowed cancellations on orders if people wanted to try and get it through best buy. Ever since, they have listed them on the product page. Transistor was the first that they forgot to put this on when the game went on sale, but I did not see any backlash because Josh had announced the game being picked up by best buy on twitter. 

 

I do wish that they would show the best buy cover, because some of the LRG covers have been substantially better. But since I still have GCU, it is hard to justify the extra money for a card and a cover.

Any thoughts on rogue legacy?

 

I never played it and not really a fan of roguelike games as I hate starting over on one death but it does look amusing and it had a lot of good steam reviews.

It's one of my favorite games. It allows you to upgrade your character after every death, has an ending along with another harder version after, and introduces traits and other personal quirks that keep the gameplay fresh. It is a quintessential "just one more time" game.

Speaking of games that Best Buy will carry, looks like BB plans to carry Rogue Legacy but not Double Switch.

That's probably a good idea from a quality and or demand point of view. RL is probably one of the most well received titles of the last 10 years, while DS is probably one of the most forgotten and or unwanted titles of the last 30.

Double Switch is an FMV game. FMV is a very niche genre, but people who like it will buy just about anything of decent quality. Comparable to the SHMUP fanbase but smaller.
