#14176287 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by beard_of_zeus on 11 June 2019 - 03:11 PM

Agreed. It really sucks for the Vita games that are having issues. Vita cart production has ended, so there's nothing other than patches that can remedy the issues. What's the point of preserving a game if it has crippling bugs that don't allow the user to finish it? Also, releasing physical games that require updates to be downloaded goes against the whole idea of preserving games in physical form for a time in which servers that house the games and updates are closed down. When it comes to Game Tengoku, it's plain and simple false advertising for LRG to say that the purchase price includes specified DLC on disc, then leave some of it off. Consumers paid for something that was promised, but didn't receive it. Offering the DLC as a download in the future is not a good resolution at all. If indeed the Homura ship was left off the disc then LRG needs to make things right by making sure each customer receives a disc that includes what was promised.

 

Given the collectible nature of LRG's games combined with the small print runs, I am assuming many of the releases do not get played by a large number of people. I wonder if there are undiscovered glitches in other games.

I agree on all counts, a big part of why I buy these physical releases of games I enjoy is the preservationist mindset (and that's also something LRG likes to tout as well). It bums me out when I pop in one of these titles and see patches still getting pulled down, or hear about issues with other games people have purchased.

 

Your last point is something I was thinking about last night as well...I'm curious how many issues like this might not be noticed until a while down the road. I know I'm personally guilty of buying these titles and not opening them in the case where I already have a digital copy and I'm double-dipping on a physical (which is probably like half the time). Game Tengoku I didn't own digitally and I was excited to check it out, which is why I came across the issue. I've bought a decent amount of stuff from LRG, and this is the first time I feel actively cheated, like you said, it feels like false advertising in this case.

 

I triple checked regarding the Homura ship, to make sure I wasn't going crazy, but there is a very specific menu option in the game where you can see what DLC is available, and it definitely shows Homura as locked (the character even does a little monologue to convince you to buy it), and when you go to play arcade mode, it's not selectable. The Clarice DLC ship is available though, as well as being able to activate the voice pack DLC, so 2 of the 3 DLCs are there.

Reminds me of their release of the first Seralim, the game is literally unplayable from the disc because it has a massive bug that loses your saves after only a few hours of play. There's a patch for it, but the disc is basically useless.

 

 

Also, I'm pretty sure the Vita version of Night Trap is still unbeatable because of bugs. 

Man, that sucks to hear about these other issues with some of the other LRG game releases. I feel like there should be better quality control for what we are paying for these copies...sorta sours me a bit on the whole thing.

I feel like I'm being gaslit by all the people in this thread recommending Time and Eternity. It's kind of a bad video game.

 

I'm interesting in picking up Giana Sisters at that price, seems like a neat platformer.

Glad I got in on this when it was still cheap today, hopefully my order doesn't get canceled :(

 

Seems like a really nice art book set.

Posted by beard_of_zeus on 20 March 2014 - 11:21 PM

Apologies if this has been posted already, or if I screw something up. Long-time CAG, but first time starting a topic (most of the deals I see I get beaten to by other folks).

 

Anyways, I noticed today that EDF 2025 had gone down by $10 already on Amazon. If you are enticed by the $39.99 price, enjoy!

#11070411 TRU: $25 Gift Card w/WiiU, Save $20 on any 2 PS4/XboxOne Games / Up...

Posted by beard_of_zeus on 18 September 2013 - 02:32 PM

Well, I decided to call up my store (this is store 8304, btw) this morning before driving over there with my receipt from yesterday (just in case), and attempted to explain everything, and they acted like I had no idea what I was talking about. I was told they didn't receive any information or communications about this at all. Super frustrating, not sure what to do now.

 

The last thing the manager told me was that they "couldn't make the commitment to provide the gift card since they didn't have enough information about it."

Had a pretty poor experience trying to get this deal today here in VA. Took in a printed copy of the coupon for the $10 gift card and the cashier said something along the lines of "Hmmm...I know I was told something about this today" and proceeded to call the manager over. The manager refused to even scan the coupon, just saying "No, we're not doing this, we're not doing this" over and over.

 

I was able to get a free copy of Midnight Club (the only R* game I don't own), but was utterly shot down trying to redeem the gift card offer. I had a TRU eCertificate to use, so I ended up getting GTA V anyways along with the free game, but I can't help but be disappointed with my experience. TRU is usually on point with their deals, but not so much this time.

 

Josh, probably nothing you can do for me at this point, but I wanted to relay my experience to you.
