According to the latest tweet, They are fighting an attack.

Lol. "We are working to resolve this website issue. It appears we are fighting an attack unfortunately." Or just a crappy server.

They need to just delay it at this point. It's a Tuesday morning. People are at work and can't just keep furiously refreshing the page for a half hour.

Yeah, "attack" of all the people trying to buy the game, that they severely underestimated the interest of.

They should reannounce a date for one week from now and look into increasing their print run size and scaling server load in the meantime.

Ugh this is clownshoes.  Does anyone have any experience with LRG's free game redemption?  Like, is one day turnaround realistic if I ask for the LRG Ruiner cover variant which goes on sale tomorrow, or is that not enough time for their customer service to set me up?

You have to physically mail the tickets in and for really short run items, they generally won't allow ticket redemptions this close to release.

I already sent in my tickets, it is at the step where I tell them which one I want right now.  I was going to redeem for Cosmic Star Heroine, but the way things are going with Ruiner...

While I buy limited physical release games and I support them, it is shit like this that makes me want to sell all the ones I have and just go digital.

You can try, but they have typically not done it this close to release on a really limited release.

Yeaaaaaa, that's not how it works. They could release at a different time, but you can't just up a print run.

Some of the earlier certificate error messages made it seem like an actual attack (not just that there’s too much customer traffic).

I think they can investigate it while they work on their technical issues.

I have little faith that even if you fedex overnighted your tickets to LRG that they'd process them faster than 2 weeks

Assuming they push the date, I wonder if this means that LRG is also going to move their date as well, since I assume the intention is to have it on LRG after special reserve sells their copies?

If nothing else, that will give people potentially more time to get tickets in...

I assume they have a contract not to sell before Special Reserve has their sale.

SRG just posted on Facebook that the sale will be rescheduled.  Details will be sent out by e-mail and on social media today.

PSA: Reverie for the Vita/PS4 from Play-Asia goes up in about 4 hours at 8am PST, and each is limited to 3000. This will be the first offering, with a second one being offered 12 hours later for those who miss the am offering. Game looks like a cool "Zelda" type adventure with Mother/Earthbound art styles. https://www.play-asi...info/exclusives

I looked at a trailer of the game and one boss is a possessed tumble dryer called "Ol' Martha"? lol

 

All kidding aside, it does look like a fun old school adventure with puzzles and dungeons reminiscent of my childhood. Might go ahead and order it. Thanks for the info.

GEMATSU for $3 off. And for those of you who forget the codes(myself included), you can view past invoices on PA and the code is listed on the invoice when used.

Placed an order for both PS4 and Vita versions of Reverie.  With free shipping and a $5 off code I got in a previous order, it came to $64.98 shipped.  Not bad for two limited CE games.

Is anybody else having issues paying via Paypal? I keep confirming the payment, and then it takes me to a button-less screen where I can't do anything to finish the payment.
