In Topic: Limited Run Games Thread - The Switch is on!

Here’s a question, who here has forgotten what games they’ve ordered from LRG that are unfulfilled? I have 16 orders unfulfilled right now and can’t remember half of them. Just looking and I still have An Elysian Tale CE still unfulfilled from August 2018. Any idea when they’ll ship those?

 

You're buying way too much if you can't remember haha.

 

My open orders are Jak 1,2 CE's, Strangers Wrath CE, some VR game, Curse of the Moon CE. Jak was purchased on Dec. 8th and it's TBA.

Here's the thing though, increasing shipping speed likely means either increasing staffing and potentially increasing costs which will be passed on to the consumer or sharply reducing the volume of releases which means far fewer games will see a physical release.  Neither of those outcomes is great.  Regardless, bitching about it here will do nothing to change LRG's business practices, so if you have an issue with them, please reach out to them directly and stop derailing this thread.

 

 

This thread is supposedly a "Deals" one. It has never been a deals thread. 

 

The problem is YOU feel the need to respond to literally every criticism of LRG. Your constant quoting and defense of LRG is what derails more than anything.

Shipping from LRG has gone like this the last couple of years. When a shipping label gets created it usually takes 1 to 2 weeks before actually shipping. Takes about another week or so to deliver.

 

When a game is "out for delivery" it never delivers that day. My LRG deliveries seem to be always be scheduled for Wednesdays, but I don't get them until that Saturday or the next week. While I've never had a game sit for a month after label creation I can say the way LRG games are never delivered on time is not the norm.  When something is out for delivery whether It's Ebay, Best Buy, Amazon, Play Asia, Target, Walmart, Costco, etc it delivers 99.9% of the time.

I tried to log into the Special Reserve Games website for the first time since last May. 

 

When i went to reset my password it said no account exists with my email.  Weird. However I made a new account with the same email and what do you know, my purchases are still there. Just thought it was funny.

they wanna brag and boast about shipping costs being what they are so they can pay their shipping teams liveable wages, and thats admirable.  But with that, also comes  acertain duty to your customers for better communications, more reliable shipping and shipping notices.  The fact is, LRG got too big for their own ability to handle, and it will not improve as switch volume continues to grow.  I am just trying to hang on thru the end of the vita life with them, and ill be done with the company as a whole.  The entire experience in the last year - 18 months has COMPLETELY soured me on everything about them, and i was once a vocal supporter.

For all we know the living wage thing is BS. Pretty much everything that comes out of the LRG guys' mouth is BS at this point. They are a cost cutting company trying to make max dollar off of mostly cheap Indie games. So no I don't really believe that. Yes they may have started with good intentions but now act like any other company that got too big. Using UPS Innovations is a joke. Every time something is supposed to be out for delivery it's usually 4 or 5 days away. My Sundered CE which LRG was apart of was supposed to be here Friday, but it's out of state somewhere.

 

I pick and choose what I buy so I only have a few open orders at this point. Probably gonna go with Curse of the Moon CE Friday though.
