From what I can tell the dude has been on Youtube for quite some time and has nearly 20K subscribers to his channel. At this point he probably is having some kind of illusions of grandeur as far as his social status and the way he perceives how important his effect on society is. This was apparent with the veiled threat he made about doing a "video" about LRG at the end of his existing video about LRG.
Not to derail too far here, but now that Youtube has been around for over a decade, it's interesting to observe the effect that these video bloggers and such have had on the video game culture, or even just culture in general. Someone in a Facebook group posted a photo a few months back of a copy of some semi-rare NES game (I think it was Dragon Warrior 4) that they had taken to a convention and were showing off how they had gotten it signed by all the "Youtube All-Stars" like Metal Jesus, Pat, and a few others, but all I could think about was how horrible the game now looked with all of that sharpie pen all over it. But I guess to some people, these Youtube personalities are really that cool and influential to them. I just don't see it that way though. Metal Jesus seems like a friendly guy but I don't see him as anything more than a dude about my age with roughly the same knowledge of video games, with the difference being he likes to put himself in front of a camera.
I didn't know DQ4 NES was rare. Mine is in pristine condition but rarely used. The only person I would want signing my copy is Yuji Horii or DQ's composer

I love all the people on their high horses that got a copy talking down to those who got screwed out of one. I've bought several games from LRG, so I know what I'm doing, thanks. This and Wonder Boy makes 2 in a row that have sold out while I was checking out. Beginning to wonder if this is worth the effort.
Can't wait until one of you smug folks miss out for the first time.
Meh, if I miss out, I miss out. No hard feelings, but its the nature of capitalism. For the record the Night Trap CE was combined woth the regular in the same page. Had to click on the link within the regular game to buy it. I've made a habit that I'm not going to buy an Indie game for $59.99 even CE. Standard is good enough and I'm not for reselling. Maybe its a East Coast thing where there's more site traffic, compared to the West Coasters. And also this is the first time, I ever got a message from LRG saying something like "Please wait for next spot in queue due to high traffic". Actually had to wait.

I kind of wished in the morning it would be one and later in the day it would be two. I am only saying this from a logical point of view. The morning one is going to only people who work late, retirees and bums who most likely mooch off their parents. While the batch in afternoon will be everybody. People who are at school or work all day and anybody else who was busy throughout their day. Which is why there needs to be more copies in the afternoon batch.
Excuse me, I work hard for a living, paying bills, driving kids to work. It works prefect for me in the West Coast, when I wake up early buy it quick and then my whole day is free and not worrying about waiting for the second batch. The old saying the early bird catches the worm applies here. You want that game, go outside for a break and buy it.

Just a heads up, if anyone here missed out on the Breath of the Wild Masters Edition and actually wanted the Master Sword Statue without having to buy it on Ebay for like $130 to $150 for just the statue. Game UK actually still have their PAL Limited Edition available to order for roughly $119 shipped (converting from 94.94 pounds). I think it's still available because there's a glitch on their website and they don't seem to know about it. Last week a friend of mine noticed the Limited Edition was taken out of their website but when you click the direct link nowinstock.com (But through mobile site only), it's still available to order. If you click the link through nowinstock desktop site, it'll show the LE page on GAME UK but the order button is missing and shows it's sold out. Anyways, He took his chance last week and ordered through mobile site and he got his LE in the mail today in perfect condition. To top it off, GAME UK even threw in two bonus items, 1st item was a BOTW pouch with a nice Keychain, 2nd item was a sealed giant poster. both were surprises since it wasn't even mentioned on their site. You can easily flip the PAL version of the game and Soundtrack for $60 easily if you no longer need those two items.
$100 bucks forthr statue!!! Feels too low, $200 or higher is were it should be.

I passed on this indie game, three time already. Don't see the value in this, even limited compared to a NISA CE, but to each his own. Just want to get a digital release, even though i'm pro-physical copy..just not worth it to own.
