#14322560 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Jurai on 15 September 2020 - 12:02 AM

COVID is a convenient excuse and I'm absolutely certain it has legitimately impacted their production/shipping capabilities, but it's been bad for a while and only gotten worse. I used to post monthly updates in this thread about shipping delays (before they changed the production updates page and made it less user friendly). Here's an example from a year ago, pre-COVID, when they had almost 100 separate SKUS pending shipment (for reference, they currently have ~140).

 

Sure the other companies are bad too, but those companies also aren't shoveling out multiple titles every week. Whataboutism aside, the abhorrent shipping backlog and lack of communication would probably be dealbreakers in any other industry but LRG has made a small empire capitalizing on FOMO. Their stuff still sells so there's no reason they would stop or adjust, but it just feels slimy to me and it's definitely impacted the number of purchases I've made from them.

It takes them weeks to even get items that are 'in-hand' out the door at this point, it makes no sense even if you chalked covid as to blame for shipping being slow, they aren't even taking the packages and dropping them off in a timely fashion




#14313936 Analogue NT Mini final run preorder

Posted by Jurai on 13 August 2020 - 09:09 PM

Still waiting on the Super NT restock - theyve been OOS for like 6 months or so.
 
But on a positive note I did grab an Analogue Pocket.


I bought 2 in April

Has anyone (YouTubers or website) reviewed these new cases by chance?

 

I got one of their Saturn cases as a solution for my damaged Snatcher cassette thingy from back whenever and if that case is the same as the ones they're selling here, then I'd pass on this. I have 20+ something Saturn games with good cases (no cracks but have other wear/scratches/scuffing) and the case I received felt notably cheaper than the legit cases. It did have the same design though, which is nice, but def did not fee. I'm wonder if it's been improved since then but... not worth risking for $80. Wish I could just buy 1 to test. 

I imagine they are the same cases they've been using in some of the CE's, I noticed the person that had been selling cases on Amazon that competed with LRG's ran out, so I wouldn't be surprised if LRG had just been waiting for them to run out of stock to bring theirs to market at a higher price. The Amazon person says they are gonna have more in September (https://us.amazon.co.../dp/B07GBMRQJW/)

#14307828 The Gamestop Thread

It's quite ridiculous. I had 3 Xbox games that were "shipped" on June 20th. They're supposed to be delivered today


I have an order from three weeks ago that has been "awaiting carrier pickup" for three weeks, makes no sense

Was it a normal return (within 7 days) or did you use the paid warranty?


30 days won't get questioned at this point, they aren't shipping in any reasonable time any more, I returned like two weeks after delivery

I bought ncaa football 14 ps3 for $55 shipped. I pray to God that it's complete.

I bought 13 copies 3 weeks ago. 9 of the 13 copies had holes and scratches through the top layer. Another 1 of the 4 good copies had a small hole in the edge of the top layer but it was outside of the game data and ripping the disc multiple times finished without error. I returned them to a Gamestop a week and a half ago, wouldn't be surprised if they are being recirculated.

I'm aware of 4 other copies recently purchased that also were pockmarked with holes and scratches. Goodluck

How is a pre-order sold out??

I suppose it isn't an open pre order? That sucks.


It hasn't gone live, it probably is since there's no mention of limits

#14291050 Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Posted by Jurai on 22 May 2020 - 02:29 PM

My area isn't a hot zone by any means, we only have 14 verified cases of Covid 19, and I still got sick. I'm #15. And, about 6 of the people to get it in my town have died so far.


Yikes hope you recover ok

Posted by Jurai on 21 May 2020 - 09:19 PM

Hey Epic, how about fixing the Epic game launcher so that it is more user friendly to use?   

Also, do we even have wishlists on the epic store?      let's get the basics down.

#14290408 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Jurai on 19 May 2020 - 11:37 PM

I could've sworn there was more discussion about it in Discord, but searches didn't find anything more than Josh acknowledging it couldn't be shipped. Searching in Discord is kinda awful, but things like "Metal Slug ESRB" and "Metal Slug 3 cover" didn't return anything. Possible that I'm misremembering or possible that they really want to brush it under the rug to avoid the wrath of ESRB.


They suppressed all talk about it, I guess they thought they could just evade the esrb or something I don't really know. I'm not in the discord but I've heard they were trying to stop discussion
