Will the SMRPG Game + Vinyl orders be shipped along with the single vinyls?

Afterwards, but they shouldn't take long to pack and ship.

LRG is one of the very few companies that I actively follow and care about. Maybe it's because they're so active in the fan community and going as far as commenting updates on websites like reddit, CAG, neogaf, twitch streams, and of course twitter. Even when they had a serious problem with the fulfillment center, they chose to do the more difficult thing and drop the fulfillment center and ship out 6,000 games on their own because they wanted to provide better quality for their customers/fans. Keep it up LRG, I'm sure I'll be doing business with you for a long time.


Also more t-shirt colors please. I'm a colorful person with a colorful personality and I need a t-shirt to match that.


Thanks for the support! I wish we could be more active in the community than we are but we're stretching ourselves pretty thin already, haha. Once we sell out of some of our current shirts we'll be doing some new colors. We had a neon blue shirt with a hot pink logo when we started but they didn't sell all that well so we went with a more boring approach this time. We'll make sure something in the next wave is exciting!

So you're saying you included Oddworld Vita with my order, thanks. ;)


Can't guarantee it's your order but someone got a free copy of Oddworld.

A decent flip is possible, but rare. A couple years ago there was a DS game (forget the title... Maybe by Atlus?) that was worth $16 at Best Buy. I remember flipping three to get Lollipop Chainsaw (PS3) for cheap.

For some insight - we've generated sales reports that break order combinations into groups and we're prepacking and printing labels using those groups. We've printed all 1,485 single Vita order labels (the largest order group) and have packed about 400 (just one person packing today). We'll have four people packing tomorrow so Vita should get knocked out as well as a huge chunk of PS4. PS4 and Combos (PS4+PSV) should be done Thursday or early Friday. SMRPG single vinyls will probably be shipped Thursday as well as standalone Dragon Fantasy CDs. All other order combinations will ship throughout the next week.

There is no preference on international versus domestic - we're shipping everything out as we get to the groupings they're in. The fulfillment center always left international till the end so this should be slightly better.

With us on shipping duties it means random freebies and gold stickers are back.

There has been no mention of anything changing so nothing will ever improve in this situation.

I understand it's a small team but some of the service is really piss poor. I've sent e-mail before and no one even bothered to respond.


Because this is literally my biggest pet peeve. How do you suggest we fix the loose disc issue without unsealing everyone's games and padding the *inside* of the case?

Just got hit with a fee for my college textbooks. Really hate to sell my games :(

Check with your teachers to make sure you actually need the books. The programming classes I teach at the local community college all "require" a $60 book but it's literally used once for a single assignment. None of the course material requires it outside of a single project.

 

I used to buy all my textbooks on half.com - I'd buy the lowest condition book listed so long as it didn't have water damage or missing pages. I never had a problem selling them back to the on campus book store at the end of the year. They seemed to only check for water damage and missing pages. Oftentimes I'd end up profiting when I sold my books back vs what I originally paid.

We've been told by the fulfillment center that the remaining domestic orders will be out on Monday. International orders should apprently be done by Wednesday.

what the hell
August 19, 2016 Paid Unfulfilled

Literally just two people at our company, we can't fulfill items at the speed of Amazon. Everything will be out in the mail this week.

In case it wasn't clarified the only person who posted their Shadow Complex in this thread won it from ChAIR. I don't think any shipments from us have arrived to anyone yet.

Wouldn't releasing Castlevania games be Konami's responsibility and not Nintendo's?

Alternate note, I'll be here watching when all the people hating on this suddenly want it when it is impossible to get in November.

The $29.99 digital price came from the press release for Rez.

FWIW, we want games to be cheap but there may be several times where it isn't feasible. If we ever got the opportunity to make FF5 a reality, we'd likely be at $49.99 or $59.99 - we'd have to make it worth Nintendo and Koei's time.

I just mean that they ship (for a small bubble envelope) about the same time frame with the same level of care. It's pretty much the same exact service just with a different stamp on it declaring it media mail. I mean... I've shipped a lot of stuff Media Mail, First Class, Priority... time frames were pretty consistent between Media Mail and First Class.

In the end, as long as I get my game, I'm cool. Same for everyone that ordered from LRG today and will be waiting a few weeks for their games to show up. All of these companies kind of suck in one way or another. LRG's distribution center issues, glitchy website, and loose discs. iam8bit's use of media mail and inflated shipping costs (and supposedly poor customer service?). No one really does that great a job. Well... maybe fangamer. I thought their website worked fine and shipping seemed fair enough. I'll find out in October just how good these other companies are any better. In the end though... it's all about the games for me.

Loose discs will be a problem for iam8bit and anyone else shipping PS4 games. I'm so sick of people thinking this problem is exclusive to us. Do people really think that if we could fix this, we wouldn't? If I had an option to pay $1 more for better cases, I would. Loose discs are a nightmare issue and they plague ALL PS4 releases. I've started collecting videos of games in retail stores with loose discs just to refute the jerks who claim this is an LRG exclusive issue.

Also, even if we have fulfillment center issues, we *always* make sure people get their order. If something gets crushed we replace it. For a company with literally two people doing everything, I'd say we're doing a pretty killer job on most fronts.

I should also point out that Fangamer isn't doing any actual publishing. They're just doing fulfillment and distribution. Loose discs were a problem for them on RCR and if they had anything super limited and super in demand their site would have all the same issues (they use Shopify too, so does iam8bit for that matter).

Just for full transparency and so there are no surprises in the future, our prices are based on our games' digital prices. There is always a possibility we could have a $40 or $50 release. For instance, everyone keeps requesting Dariusburst CS, which is $60 digitally. If we pubbed that it wouldn't be any less than $60 unless the dev granted us permission to go cheaper. Run sizes would scale back at higher prices because we assume less people would be interested.

Vast majority of our releases will end up at $24.99 or $29.99, though. :)

I'm assuming you will be adding them later then since you are already down to the "T's" in your initial list and missed on a bunch of them (Octodad, Breach and Clear, etc)? I'm also guessing you'll get to listing Retro City Rampage as well?

Great idea for a thread and thanks for taking the time to do it! Will be handy as I try to complete my collection.

Sounds like you are only listing current systems, right? Original DS probably won't be considered a current system but it has a number of limited and hard-to-get physical games such as Diamond Trust of London, Electroplankton, and the old Club Nintendo exclusives (Game and Watch Collection, Game and Watch Collection 2), to name a few.


For anyone interested, Jason Rohrer still has 3,700 copies of Diamond Trust of London for sale at http://diamondtrustgame.com/buy.php

We're all sold out of Shadow Complex. Total time on sale was about 27 hours if you don't count the hours it wasn't live between batch 1 and 2. I'd say this was really successful for our biggest print run yet.

Sekai Project is actually working really hard to lock down Grisaia for us. Don't totally know all the details but they want to do it and just need to get Front Wing on board.

There is a chance we'll be revealing our first Japanese release next week! It's coming out in September.
