The company "Limited Run Games" popped up recently and has promised to produce physical copies of games (so far for the PS Vita and PS4 and soon Switch) that were previously available only in a digital format. As the company's name suggests, these games will be produced in limited quantities which will depend on the game and will not be reprinted after they sell out.

From what I've seen and read so far, the games will be individually numbered from 1 up to however many were printed. They don't appear to have ESRB ratings, and I'm not certain if they have bar codes or item numbers like the PS4 and Vita physical versions of Retro City Rampage DX.

Interesting idea! For now they only have the two games from their own studio but if they manage to hook japanese games western publisher on this, it may  produce nice collectibles!

Thanks for posting this! ;D I'll certainly try to buy Breach and Clear tomorrow.
Since they don't have ESRB on the front, would it be safe to consider these unofficial releases or homebrews?

I think that these should be considered official despite the lack of ERSB ratings.

All of our releases are part of the official library, they're manufactured by Sony and have official product numbers. Breach & Clear is PCSE-00746. We don't have ESRB ratings because they are voluntary, and super expensive. Retailers require them - we ship direct to customers so we don't need ratings. I don't think a mother will accidentally buy her child an 'M' rated game through our site. :)

We have actual UPC codes on the back of the box. I believe we've got a picture posted to our Twitter and Facebook.

Let me know if you guys have any questions about the release or what we're doing with Limited Run. I'm happy to answer! I know some folks have been skeptical that we're trying to prey on collectors in some malicious manner. We're not, I've been a collector since I was a kid and own around 1,000 games. We're doing this because we love game collecting, it's as simple as that.

While I don't have any interest in the games currently being offered, this is certainly something I'm interested in. Heck, I just ordered 2 imports today of games that won't be getting US physical releases, so I'm more than willing to go out of my way to secure a physical release of a game I'm interested in.

Here's hoping the offerings branch out more!

LimitedRunGames what is your plan if you ever come across a situation where your entire offering gets bought in a matter of minutes? like a vast under determination of game popularity?
Are there any precautions in place for stopping large bulk buys? you know scalpers (people who buy to sell at markup on places like e-bay) after all you say you are a collector and as a fellow collector I despise scalpers.
what games are you currently pursuing? do you have a particular game type of game you are targeting?
Browsing around your store there is a non-implemented subscription buy, what is this used for? how much will it cost? what's the timeframe on investment?
Do you ever plan on having games in a non-limited aspect? like you will only sell game x for 1 year instead of 1000 copies of game x?

If I think of anymore questions I will let you know

Edit:

And lol I wouldn't consider july to be a few weeks ago  ;)

Did not know that ratings were voluntary, shows my ignorance!  :o  Thanks for the response! So is it just item numbers or UPC codes that are required to be part of the official library? I'm genuinely curious what the process for getting a game into the official physical library is.

It can't have been available for too long. A few hours maybe? I hadn't seen any official times for when it was supposed go up, so I'm not 100% sure.

*sigh* It was inevitable, but that sure was quick for a scalper to post that even when the game was still in stock. It won't sell at that price. It's a collectible game sure, but not that high. Sheesh.

It was live for about 2 hours (11:30am EST-1:30pm EST) which I consider pretty good for only 1500 copies.

man, I was going to get a copy but by the time I got on they where sold out. I personally hate these low limited items on new games.
It just makes resellers go nuts. sigh. 4

Also Limited Run's needs to put a Limit of 1 per mailing address, your just going to get scalpers buying as many as they can and only a few getting to the gamer's. I am not paying a scalper $400 for this game.  >:(

I for one will always support Indy developers that go the extra mileage to give me a physical copy, rare or not, limited or not. Big AAA should be ashamed, I'm thinking of you Halo with your big LE collector box and a vulgar digital code. I know they corrected it but still, these should not happen yet.

Those that missed snagging a copy earlier, you may have another chance. According to the Limited Run Games Twitter https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/with_replies
"The freed up stock from excess orders will go live at the same time, probably going to be 200 - 300." The time they referred to in another tweet was "Most likely Monday evening, once we've gone through all of our orders"

They are doing a poll on their twitter page asking if they should limit sales to 1 per platform. I think they should and the votes seem to back it up. If you guys want, toss em a vote as well.

I got my ps4 with soundtrack bundle too. I happened to hit f5 about 10 seconds before the actual strike of 10am and it had the for sale option for me. I hope the rest of you get yours tonight if you are trying. :)

I definitely think they should. I don't get up early for _anything_ not work, not church, nothing. But I got up early for this.

It's going to make me sick seeing these on ebay later today for $100.

I did get a plain Vita copy. But I don't even own a Vita.

I think they underestimated the demand. The word is out now, Breach & Clear was sort of obscure. Now collectors and scalpers have their finger on the trigger. The soundtrack vanishing immediately annoys me on every level. Hopefully with the success of this release future launches will be smoother and better stocked.

Yeah, I got this game for the iPad 2 or 3 years ago.

I've been anticipating this since it was announced 4 months ago. Partly because it's a great game and partly because this is the premiere of the final episode on any platform.

I barely slept all night (anticipation and didn't want to oversleep).

Got up at 6:30am. Put in my order at exactly 7:00am (Pacific).

I know it's just a game but I'm devastated.

Most of the ebay auctions will get canceled. They did the same thing with Breach. I have been following LRG since the beginning and they are fairly new and realize that this game shows them that they seriously underestimated the demand. Every game they release will change how the next game goes. For those of you that missed the first batch, be ready to jump on that second one. And they are strong limiting it to 1 platform per customer.

Just copied this from their own website :

Rest assured, though - we're using data from every release to determine print sizes for all future games. We're base lining print runs at 2,000 copies (no runs will ever be smaller than that) and we're looking at 3,000+ copies for the bigger games we sign (barring the developers wanting a smaller run). We're going to be actively trying to meet demand while keeping our releases desirable (that's kind of core to making sure our releases can sell out).

I cant find it anymore but their was an ebay listing for the ps4 version that claimed to have 2 with 1 being sold when I noticed it. so im assuming the other copy got sold and that made me lol because they are canceling all duplicate orders. So that guy isn't going to get his second copy to someone who already paid $100+ for it.

Doh! From this morning I feel your pain my friend. It's too bad they can't allow extra orders so kind hearted folks can get an extra copy to "help a brother or sister out." If they do that though this morning shows it will be exploited by a handful of scalpers.

Looks like Vita copies (without sound track) are still up for grabs! Worth it!

A few of Vita version still available.

Thanks for splitting this up. Just like dashv I wasn't up for the first round of the sale. Ordered the Vita version and then figured might as well grab one for PS4 since that one will probably have more of a chance for updates and/or DLC for the apparent additional episodes (besides Steam), since the Vita is pretty much cooked.

Those copies on Ebay will probably not even make it to the scalpers. They are actively searching out those people and canceling their orders.

I'm still waiting on my copy. I was able to get both PS4 and Vita. Missed the soundtrack though.
Still listed as paid but Unfulfilled as far as shipped.  :-\

Oh man, that sucks... I'm glad that they offered the option to buy a box for shipment over a bubble mailer... I ended up paying a little extra for that, though there wasn't any other packaging material in the box. Just the games and the soundtrack.  The shipping box had one corner kinda crushed, but the contents were fine as far as I could tell.

I totally did the same thing. I noticed the boxes and such afterwards when I was looking at the site, and I saw on Twitter that you could email them to ask them to merge orders so that things like the box would apply to a particular order you placed earlier.  I had two separate purchases when they had the two purchase windows open that day, and then a third order of just the box and plastic sleeves for the games. They were really nice about getting back to me quickly and merging the order and giving an appropriate refund based on the size of the order.

I'll remind folks of this add-on for the next go around!

I ordered one of each and it arrived a few days ago. Today's a postal holiday, though, in the US, so that might also delay things. Hopefully you'll get it soon. I don't think it'll get cancelled. Limited Run just tweeted that they're having bad weather, so they will do another batch of shipping tomorrow since they can't get to their office today.

Despite having bought the first two LR games and liking the company's attitude and enthusiasm, I've got to admit my interest in their output has declined to almost zero.

Having no pre-order system or the like means that adults with busy lives get funnelled into a clicking contest with scalpers in order to 'win' something instead of just buying the damned game. The company's nonsensical answer to this, from what I can gather, is that the IP owners 'like' the ultra-limited numbers, though quite why any company would love the idea of annoying and frustrating their customer base is beyond me.

What Limited Run is doing is by no means unique or impossible for other companies to do, I just hope they either figure out a way of letting their customers buy their products without this ridiculous hoop-jumping or that someone else who can steps in.

I wonder if they realize they are just re-incentivizing piracy and hardware hacking.

Scott Pilgrim VS the World the game being delisted and unavailable in physical form of any kind pushed the developer of the XBox 360 emulator to make some major breakthroughs.

Now for many the only way to play the game is to get a pirated copy and play it on an emulator.

REMINDER: Oddworld: New 'N' Tasty goes on sale tomorrow for Vita and PS4

Orders will be taken in two batches. The first half of the inventory will be available at 10AM EST, the second half will follow at 6PM EST.

Region free. PS4 version includes the Alf's Escape DLC on disc (this DLC was never available for Vita).

WARNING: Limit ONE copy per platform (PS4 & Vita) per customer. If you make any additional orders on this platform, all orders made after the first one will be CANCELED.

If you want an add-on, like a cardbord shipping box (otherwise it's a padded envelope) or a protective case, you can add those to your cart prior when Oddworld goes live. Adding them afterwards might slow down your checkout, putting you at risk of your cart getting cleared out.

They had issues with their Vita batch, if anything. It kept showing up as sold out for most people, but after some refreshing and such, I was able to snag one.

Second wave is up at 6p EST - best of luck to folks for that batch!

They also announced that there will be a 3rd wave later for cancelled orders, so there's a third chance that way, too.

I still can't understand why there's a need for this unnecessary feeding frenzy and spectacle. I would much rather they did it the way Gaijinworks / Monkey Paw did where they had people pay in / pre-order and anyone who cared to have a copy could.  ::)

Very much this. I'd love to not have to stress about it and just go with the presale method. Hitting the refresh button until it's time for the game to go up for sale is a pain and it sucks when you forget about a game you wanted because you had more important things to do that day. With presales, it doesn't even matter if a bunch of people are buying them just to resell because they're not taking away a copy from someone who wanted a copy for themselves.

Good luck! I ordered both of mine on my phone, including the protective cases (though I put those in my cart prior to the games being available).  There are technically more PS4 copies than Vita, if anything.

Keep giving the Vita a try. They had an error last time that made it look like they had low stock but they still had some in.  I managed to snag a Vita copy about 5 min after my PS4 order went through.

Yeah, I refreshed my cart 3 times just now and then a Vita order proceeded to the next step. Keep trying! :)

No idea - not my sort of genre, so I'm not getting it.  My biggest surprise is the diehard Vita fans - the Vita stock for all the LR games runs out a lot faster than PS4. It'll be a very interesting library after the Vita is done - lots of limited edition items.

It's possible that someone bought a PS4 and Vita copy and doesn't feel the need to hold on to both. I didn't pick up either this time, devancowan - wish I'd known earlier so I could've helped you out.

It's a shame... I went over there when there was still some in stock, and I considered picking one up, but I knew it'd be either:
1) buy it and sell it to someone on VGC
2) buy it and have it sitting on the shelf for the sake of the collection (because I don't have any interest in playing it)
3) don't buy it and hope that another collector (who actually wants to play the game) will be able to get that copy
4) don't buy it and give a scalper another item to profit off of

Hopefully you're able to snag one at some point for a reasonable price.  Saturday Morning RPG on Vita was going for $35-40 for a little bit ago, so maybe the prices will settle down.

Forgot to respond to this.  ;)

I don't think the business practices of the two are very comparable. My usual go to is how Gaijinworks/Monkey Paw does their pre-sells/pre-orders. I'm beating a dead horse at this point in stating that it's far more desirable to be able to buy into a limited edition run if I so choose rather than try in the vain hope that I beat out the feeding frenzy by being awake/available at just the right time of day and hoping I have the funds available to make the purchase. To date, I've not been able to make any of the releases because I work 2nd shift and I'm either asleep or at work when the games go live.  :-\

*sigh* As I thought would happen they've got their hands on several releases I would like, but I detest having to do business with them. Just hope to god they don't sign anything I'm desperate to own.

I know some people dislike that they can't just place a normal presale order, and that they just make that number to order. I don't know how production works, though, but I assume they can just order a certain number (based on agreements with the developer) and then sell those. Having too much back stock would take away capital for other future games (and loss for the business in general), though, I'd assume.

It's just stuff related to being unable to pre-order which I've gone over before and didn't want to clutter up this thread with negativity seeing as LR are doing so much right. Thanks for your offer though Soera, you're a star.

It's probably far more complicated than I can even get a handle on, tbh with you Desocietas, but I'm more than a little worried that they seem to have 'made a decision' regarding this and will continue to run with that from hereon in. They're new at this, they need to protect themselves financially, I appreciate that, but part of business is making the necessary moves to keep things going. If they've already 'stuck' on this, it will turn them from "by collectors for collectors" to "by collectors for the collectors who have time to hoop-jump or the cash to pay scalpers' ransoms", which would be a great shame. Where there's the will there's a way.

This is where I'm at as well. I've already voiced my displeasure at how they operate which seems to have fallen on deaf ears. I've wondered multiple times why they can't just mimic the model that Gaijinworks has done for their releases and just let people pre-pay for a copy. If there's additional ones left over then hold a "limited" sale on those for the people who didn't get in on the pre-order. That doesn't work with their model though as it's fueled on the hype and anticipation. I would LOVE to give them my money and support but apparently they neither want or care for it as there's enough mouth breathing flippers/scalpers out there to buy up the copies they press.  ::)

Let me tell you how "pleased" I was when I saw copies of Breach & Clear Vita and Saturday Morning RPG for PS4 at a comics convention recently. My cousin wanted to buy but I told him it'd be a waste of him time to ask and sure enough it was $80 for the former and $100+ for the latter. I'm obviously aware that it was the flipper setting those prices and not LRG but all of that could be avoided if they didn't pull the nonsense they do with their releases and just let me pre-buy.  :P

Now I'm seeing this partnership with that company on physical releases of visual novels. I'd love to own them but I'm NOT going to jump through hoops just to be available to order them at just the right time. I'm certainly not going to take the day off from work to ensure that I can order a game (that sound incredibly ridiculous just thinking that). Obviously LRG isn't going to alter its approach to how they do things so people like me are going to continue to be stuck. Again, I can't imagine they really care because there's plenty of Flipposaurus Rexes out there who've contributed to all of the sell outs so far.  :P

While I get the complaints to some extent, I also see that there's no one system that will please everyone. Scalpers will scalp regardless - check Ebay now & you'll see that the cheapest copy of Class of Heroes 2G, a Gaijinworks release, is going for $150 - and the prices go up from there. You could say that Gaijin gave everyone enough time, and I'd agree, but obviously not everyone does or the games wouldn't be selling for those prices. So what other solution is there? Just mass produce them? That would certainly get them into anyone's hands that wanted them, but not only is it incredibly expensive but you knock out most of the "collector" value of them. Basically, many people wouldn't want the games - and I'm talking to keep in their own collection, not resell - if they weren't rare.

Iunno - the last LR game I bought was Oddworld. I set an alert in my calendar for the day it was coming out, 10 mins before time. My phone vibrated in my weekly Monday morning meeting alerting me. I quietly logged in & bought the game with zero issues. It didn't interrupt my day at all. Not to mention the fact that when the PS4 copies went back up that afternoon for round 2 (which is the system I bought it for) they didn't sell out until the following morning.

EDIT: Oh, and I've decided recently to sell my still sealed copy of Breach & Clear, and when I do I'll be listing it comparatively with what it's currently going for. I didn't buy it to "flip", I bought it to support the just-starting LRG. But the fact is I have zero interest in that game and can use that money towards other game purchases I'm planning to make this Fall. And I won't feel bad about it when I sell it either. *shrug*

Title: Re: "Limited Run Games" is Producing Physical Copies of Games in Limited Quantities
Post by: desocietas on June 14, 2016, 03:09:19 pm
I understand and agree that the rush to buy the games results in a lot of stress and annoyance from all camps, including LR, I'm sure. But I also saw how difficult it seemed to be for Gaijinworks to sell things, even after asking people for legitimate numbers of how many people would actually buy an item. They allowed ample time for people to tell them how many they should sell, but, from what I recall, the actual purchase numbers were nothing compared to what people's surveyed answers were.

If there is a minimum for production, I can see how that can royally screw up a company as they're left holding a huge stock that they can't do anything with except keep advertising and discount them as time passes. This is all speculation, by the way!

I don't think there's any perfect way to go about selling items without someone taking a gamble on one side. Either it's the seller or the buyer.

Hopefully the community here can help each other out for these sorts of situations, if anything! I've helped out other VGC folks with extra purchases I've made from both Gaijinworks and have bought extra copies of items from LR to help out those who have missed out.

hey I have no problem with this. so far every game released I would have NEVER gotten a chance to play otherwise simply for the fact that I will NOT buy digital only games. so the only other option I would have had would be to find it on a free sale somewhere.

Allegedly the first run lasted 45 minutes for the ps4 version.  But allegedly the psv version sold within minutes.  PSV with tie was still available from this morning when the second batch popped up.  Nobody wants the tie.  My wife wanted me to buy the tie version so I would have a "father's day" tie.  I have no children.

I know what you mean but bringing in $200,000 in sales in a few hours isn't enough profit to keep a few people on? they bring in 50,000-100,000 in sales every game they release and every platform its on, and assuming a 60-40 split they will make 20,000-40,000 profit each release. that's ignoring the fact that they also publish their own games through this method.

after all they are Mighty Rabbit studios.

or do you mean this. since they directly sell to the customer they do not need to pay the costly fee to get the games rated by the ESRB or whatever they are. by doing one run in larger quantities like they do it reduces cost per game to make (instead of having an open print run and maybe only making 100-200 at a time). they specifically search for games that are already made (only in digital format) so there isn't a large cost to making the games on disc. these games they pick have already been out for a while and have somewhat of a fan base (helps them better determine the print size and reduces cost). the customer pays the shipping (reduces cost).

Click check out and shows the bundle as "Sold out" for the next 5 min I retry it over and over until I see the "5 left" then "3 left" and then "1 left".... so I missed it.

Yeah, Soldner bundle wasn't open until like 8 mins past so I was forced to checkout my other game first >:(
(lesson learned from first batch  >:()

And once it was open it was gone within 5 seconds even when it shows 25-75% - I retried it over and over then a miracle happened that my order suddenly went through (definitely got one of the last 3) ???.

Apparently they mentioned on their official forums that they're considering a $30/year membership fee that will get you a t-shirt & sticker and give you "early access" to buy new releases. I think it would be a really bad move, and there's no way I'd pay that just for the chance to buy something they're selling.

I think Rayne is gonna hook me up with a copy; he PM'd me. If for some reason things don't pan out, I'll send you or Lady D a PM.

Thanks so much, everyone. This website continues to restore my faith in the human race. ^.~

Grabbed both games for the PS4. I had decided I was going to bite on a soundtrack for once, the one for Rainbow Moon, but it sold out before I could check out with it. Oh well, don't need it anyway - especially since I still have to order Rez Infinite in a couple of hours.

I'm happy.

Unfortunately, the best way to keep up with them might be through social media. They tweeted yesterday about allowing soundtracks to be preloaded into carts prior to the games going live. Also they said that they'd remove the games temporarily to avoid people getting them early and to help with the inventory tracker, I think.

If I weren't following them on Twitter, I would've been terrified, too.

Managed to get all three today. My first buys from LRG.

Just a bit annoyed. Shadow Complex wasn't showing up as available for standalone, so I threw the bundle in with my two copies of Rainbow Moon. It was sold out, so I just got Rainbow Moon, but suddenly once I'd sorted that order Shadow Complex was available as a standalone. SO I got it but apparently they can't merge my orders. So had to pay $15 for shipping twice :(

It was my first go at using them, and despite getting all three, I still ended up frustrating. Not a fan of the system.

The whole 'limited run' is nonsense. I get that it works in one way; I mean people, including some on this site will buy even a trash game just because it appears exclusive and collectible. So for games like Breach & Clear, it actually means they sell, sure if that got a larger run, I'd imagine it'd be lucky to sell a couple hundred copies as no one would care until they see it for $3 in a bargain bin.

However some of the games like Odd World, Shadow Complex etc. deserve big runs; and should be handled like how the Vita release of Shovel Knight has been.

There's surprisingly little to be found online about the game Kashell, but I can't claim to searched every forum post, I'll comb through everything but if nothing's mentioned about it anywhere it'll go on the sale pile. Gutted that it's in the boxed finished product as I don't do online gaming/patching etc.

I originally had this for iPhone. So far they never fixed the music which broke after an ios8 update. They also never released the final episode for iPhone.

So at present PS4/Vita is the only way to play the game to completion with its soundtrack intact.

Until the PS4 release I put it down for a while waiting for the final episode to release.

I finally picked the game back up this month on PS4 after a year of not playing it.

It's a good game lots of Easter eggs, nostalgic references, and plenty of attacks to experiment with.

The graphics do look like upscale phone graphics. The music and sound is amazing.

I'm on the final episode and part of me doesn't want it to be over.

It's worth the asking price on PSN.

If you get the PS4 (digital version) you get the Vita version for free.

Honestly, they are probably doing it this way so they can make sure you don't get everything in one order so you have to pay double shipping.

I just saw... sooooooo awesome.  Will go nicely with my 1/2 genie hero.  Will probably cancel my pirate's curse for 3DS.

Now we just need a reprint of the GBC game.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!

(Sorry for the expletives)  I got excited!  I need this in my life.  These games are great. 
I just wish they would have had it as a collection.

The second wave of the PS4 version of Dragon Fantasy is live for those of you who are interested. Not sure what's going on with the Vita version. Nevermind, Vita version is up now too.

I bought a couple Limited Run Vita games and one of my games "Xeodrifter" has a perfectly punched hole at the Barcode. Has anyone else seen this with their games?

Huh. Did you get that straight from LRG? Or did you get it from another online source? The only thing I can think of is if they sold a review copy by accident or a reviewer sold theirs.

Looks sealed, though. I'd contact LRG about it. Might've been a mistake.

Got it from a seller on eBay with multiple copies that have holes in it. I'm shipping it back and ordered a different one from someone who has a good deal on his copy since he's trying to raise money to fix his car.

Yeah, a lot of scummy reviewers have been acquiring copies, "reviewing" it, and then selling the sealed copy on ebay.

Sounds like the Shantae games will get a run of 6000 copies each.  Not confirmed, but that is the current number they are planning.

Possible rumor that Muteki will re-release Dragon Fantasy Book 1 with added content through LRG.

6000 is quite a few copies.  I suspect they won't sell out too quickly.

The original OWH looks better to me than this port.  And it sounds like it is better from the reviews I've read.

I don't know.  The trailer I watched for the original looked interesting and I want to play it.  The trailer I watched for this one didn't look very interesting and just makes me want to pass on it altogether.  It's weird.

Yeah, the games are pretty different from each other, which my wallet is thankful for. For me, as much as I like RPGs, One Way Heroics didn't look appealing to me at all, but I love interesting indie games like TWA.

The games will probably be gone after today or so. I wouldn't want to use the words "too many copies" considering how others in this thread have had issues with getting a copy of a game when it goes on sale. From what I've read, the numbers of copies printed are based on the publisher's wishes, so it sounds like the publishers were able to gauge the need pretty well so that folks could get a copy without stressing too much.

Yeah, I'm sure that they won't last much longer.  But I am surprised since nearly every release before this one has sold out almost instantly for the most part (the larger print runs notwithstanding).  Specifically the vita releases.  I'm happy that no one here was shut out again that wanted a copy, I just thought the growing popularity of these releases week after week and scalpers trying to resell would mean no release would ever still be available more than 24 hours.

Hrm, pricier than I was expecting tho I realize it does come with a lot. Still, this is looking to be a more expensive month than I anticipated, mainly due to LRG (2 Shantae games which are definites for me, Volume which I'm considering and a as-yet-unnamed mystery game). Does anyone know anything about this game? My main draw is that it's from Suda, but I know it's one of his earlier games. What kind of game is it? Is it any good.

...honestly, I'll most likely get it regardless because it seems like the type of thing I'd kick myself over if I passed on it.  :-\

If I were to speculate, I would venture to guess the 14th or 21st.  That is the Friday before and after the release of Pirate's Curse for the 3DS.

But, the 28th could also make sense as that is only 3 days before the release of Half-Genie Hero.  *shrug*

If I were a betting man, and I'm not, I'd say the 14th.  With Volume releasing on the 28th.

I am genuinely worried that this might be the game that breaks Limited Run's servers. It's definitely the most recognizable game they've published and because of the allure around the Gameboy game, I imagine it will go fast.

Their site has been updated with the 2 Shantae games, and their order date is Oct. 28 (10:00 am / 6:00 pm EST as usual).

I've placed several of my orders using my phone so far. Heck, for Dragon Fantasy my wife & I were on our way to the beach. My alarm went off telling me it was about to go up, so I pulled over to the side of the road, placed the order & was on my way all in about 5 mins time. :P

Definitely have ordered from them through my phone for several sales while half-asleep in bed. For Vita and PS4 purchases, I'll have both pages open in separate tabs (while logged into my account), and add them to the cart on the separate tabs and then checked out. Haven't had an issue really, and with Shantae, I'm hoping the devs will allow for a good number of carts to be available.

6000 each.  That's near Shadow Complex numbers.

I know the demand is higher than Shadow Complex, but it should be sufficient if you are aware at time of sale.

I tried looking up the platform differences, they should be the same as their respective digital versions.

The 3DS version makes use of 3D mode.  That's all I know.

I wasn't able to find much information.  A few people complained that it doesn't look very good on an HDTV and would look better on a smaller screen.  *shrug*  I love me some Shantae, so I'm gonna jump on both, I think.

If it hasn't been reported.

Volume goes up on November 4th, 4,800 copies for Vita.  Includes Gold foil cover and a 24-page full-color manual.

Listed as #28.  In theory #26 and #27 should release between Shantae and Volume, right?

Catch-up post. ;)

1) I was annoyed to hear the Silver Case news - wish I hadn't gotten the PC version now, but on the plus side I can probably sell it & recoup my money (if anyone here missed it and wants it for cost + shipping, let me know ;) ).

2) Very cool about Stranger's Wrath...wasn't this released for the PS4 as well tho? Or am I mistaken?

3) Glad I imported Skullgirls earlier in the year - Nov. is already gonna be brutal enough on my wallet.

4) I have been hoping for a LRG Fatal Frame V release ever since they expressed interest several months back. Nintendo let Gamestop reprint Xenoblade & Metroid Prime Trilogy, so why not?

"We're teaming up with @LimitedRunGames to release a Limited Edition of #Skullgirls for PS4 and PS Vita! Pre-orders start next Monday, 10/31!"

"As an added bonus, if we get at least 10,000 pre-orders we'll patch Japanese voices into the US and EU PS4, Vita and Steam releases!"

As you're aware, the Platform/Console releases go live on a set date and you have a finite amount of copies made for those releases. For the Silver Case PC release, they had a timetable in which you could place/pay for your order. Once the order window closed, they would (supposedly) only print as many copies that people paid for. If they verified that only 1073 copies were legitimately paid for then only 1073 copies would (supposedly) be printed. At least that's how it came across to me when I ordered the game. I could be wrong.  ;)

I'll be waiting with bells on for this Friday for the Shantae releases and I'm sorely tempted to get that Oddworld Vita release.  :P

Annnnnd it's gone!

20-25 minutes to sell 6000 copies... and an unknown amount of soundtracks... probably 750+(500 a piece and halved for the first release if they do that)

(3000*25)+(3000*30)+(750+15)=~$176250

176250*.3=$52875 LRG's cut (they split it 70/30)

52875/~22=2403.41 (how much they were making a minute)

they just made a good chunk of change in no time at all.

I was up before my alarm clock went off this morning.  :o

Ordered 1 of each, didn't think about the whole cover issue but since they're reversible I'm not too worried about it. For people like rayne315, did they come out say that they were packaging 3K of one cover art and 3K of the other?

That reminds me, I need to go pick up my 3DS version from GS at some point.  :P

Snagged one copy of each. Now I can rest until Monday when they do the Skullgirls release lol
Skullgirls won't be limited like these, allegedly.


Hopefully not, but I'll still be ready to pounce as soon as it goes live. It's a game I've wanted to play for some time now, but have always wanted to have it physically.
Just confirmed that preorders for Skullgirls will be open for 2 weeks.

Releasing for PS4 and Vita.  So there's your 26 and 27.

I'm only in two facebook collector's groups at this point because they were all a bunch of reseller/scalper groups.  It got pretty bad during the amiibo craze.

The 2 I'm in, I never see folks selling stuff like this, shoot, I rarely see folks sell, mostly just folks shooting the shit.

Volume has been delayed by one week. From their twitter.
Quote
Unfortunately, due to a final last minute delay on the gold foil cover we have to push our release of @VolumeGame to November 11th. The games are already en route to us from Sony so this date can be considered 100% final.

They've also added a countdown to Volume's product page.

Every single release had copies held back.

Shadow Complex had 500 copies held just for Epic Employees if I recall correctly.  100 copies held for LRG.

Shantae had a similar thing I can't recall how many copies were held back for LRG and Wayforward.

But I know for sure LRG holds back many copies for themselves or to giveaway or to sell at conventions.

I don't recall what the profit share is, I think it is 70/30 or something with the majority going to the developers.

Ugh, could I just put a rant in here for a quick sec? This has been bothering me for a while, but I just really don't like LRG or their business model. I get and respect that people here are collectors and gamers and want to actually own/play these games, but the scalper scene that this whole project is creating is driving me crazy.

I just watched a mini-documentary from My Life in Gaming, and the co-founder of LRG even said that people will send him emails to cancel their orders if the game doesn't sell out in 24 hours. Then, in 36 or 48 hours when the game eventually does sell out, people will email him a second time telling him to disregard the cancel request. Now, why on earth would people do that?

It's because scalpers and re-sellers aren't interesting in investing in something that won't sell, and LRG knows that this is happening. Then these games all get posted on ebay for 3x as much as they were originally because scalpers know fully that that's the ONLY way you can buy the game after it sells out online! They're preying off what we desire as collectors: physical copies.

And it's barely about "preserving" games in physical quantities, in my opinion. In 10, 20, 30 years from now, these physical copies could become just as inaccessible as if they were never even made in the first place, because of availability and pricing.

I mean seriously, does anyone like that a GameCube component cable is worth $200? Or that Panzer Dragoon Saga is worth $800+? And keep in mind, they made 20,000 copies of PDS! It frustrates me that I'm forced to spend the money now when I don't even have the funds or a PS4, because if I don't buy it now, that's it. It's nice now because we can still buy the games, but what if you get into collecting years from now? You'll be SOL.

Unfortunately that seems to be an issue with scalpers rather than LRG. I know a lot of folks don't care for their business model, but is there something that would work better? Doing an open run that then closes forever takes a lot of time for both the publisher and developer and could prevent them from getting out more titles to collectors.
Title: Re: "Limited Run Games" is Producing Physical Copies of Games in Limited Quantities
Post by: telly on November 02, 2016, 05:43:46 pm
I guess I just wish they would make more copies of the games. In the scope of game production, their numbers are miniscule; I really don't think they have to be that small. That's why the scalpers charge so high on the other end, and that is something LRG could try to implement. They don't have to make 50,000+ copies, but a little more would be nice.

Ultimately, it is their own company and they can do what they want. But I still don't like it, haha.  :-\ If a different company released games with this low quantity, we would call them mad for doing so! But LRG gets a free pass.

actually with  the silver case and especially skullgirls they seem to be testing the waters for a pre-order market, they also stated that although they give the developers a number they think will sell its ultimately up to the developer not LRG to select a quantity to produce.

also you need to seriously keep in mind that most/all of these games are indie games with very low fandoms and if they didn't sell them in a limited quantity like they do then there would be no guarantee that they would even sell as many copies of these games as they produce.

also since I wrote it all out, because of my ocd when it comes to numbers, you can clearly see they are increasing production with every release (with other variables in there like current popularity, wether its well known, how long its been out for, etc)

A good point, but a huge reason why people want to buy these games isn't necessarily because they're fans of the games: people like physical copies of stuff, even though they don't have an interest in actually playing the game. And the allure of a rare and limited release also makes even more attractive for collectors, even if the game itself has a low following.

Firstly, LRG has specifically stated they will not print a second batch of any game they release, so they still purposefully limit availability of their titles, no matter how popular the are. Secondly, when talking to developers, LRG finances the entire project themselves, so they actually do have the ultimate say in how many copies they would like to make. But I think it's good that they're stepping up the production numbers and trying out a pre-order system.

Some examples to address to your second point:

Oddworld is not really a franchise with a low number of fans, it's a relatively popular and well known series.
They want to publish Phantasy Star Online 2, and have expressed interest in Fatal Frame V: games that also have followings and fanbases
and...
Breach & Clear was the number 1 strategy game in 40 different countries on it's original platform (iOs), and was the number 2 game in 2013 in the United States.

In addition, my issue still stands: If at any point in the future you want to own any of these game for any reason, it will be next to impossible and frustratingly expensive (as it stands right now).
What if you want to collect for the PS4? Or the Vita?
What if you hear about Octodad in a YouTube video and want to try the game out?
What if you played Shantae on the 3DS and want to check out some other games in the series?

You would completely miss out because you were late to the party :( Again, we don't like how other rare games are like that now, I'm not thrilled that LRG is making releases that play into that same situation, whether it makes sense from a business perspective or not.

A lot of your points are moot given that they are readily available digitally at a cheaper price point, plus digital sales are very frequent.

If you are going to whine that you refuse to buy digital then I don't know what to tell you other than to get over it.  You can pay 50 cents or some shit when it hits humble bundle or gets a redonk sale, or eat the shit and buy it on ebay for a million yen.

No LRG does not have the final say on how many are produced, the developers have the final say, LRG only gets to suggest the print numbers.  LRG finances the whole thing, but the money from sales first go 100% to pay the costs of printing and such, then the profit gets doled out 70/30 in the developers favor.  If the developer chooses a low number, the developer may not stand to make much money.

And FINALLY, LRG did say they will not print second runs of any of the games, but guess what, the developers do not sign some publisher agreement that prevents the developer from finding another publisher to reprint the game.  So, for example, down the line, if Wayforward decided it wanted to produce more copies of Pirate's curse or Risky's revenge, 1/2 genie hero style, they absolutely could.

Post by: telly on November 03, 2016, 01:23:32 pm
No I totally agree man; if these games were made with additional releases by WayForward or whoever, my concerns would be no big deal. And just to clarify, I too have nothing against digital. I have digital games in my collection that I bought/ downloaded. I refer to an imaginary person with "you" in the bottom of my previous post; I'm not talking about myself here.

If a developer wanted to make 30,000 or 40,000 copies of their game, and went to LRG about it, I daresay LRG would limit that number because they want to make a "limited run" of their products. At some point there would be a limit to how many they will make, which is the "final say" I'm referring to.

I think what I'm trying to say here is in a purely hypothetical sense, which is why my posts have a lot of "what ifs" and "coulds" and I reference other rare/expensive items that have fallen into the same fate. So my issue is if the servers for a game go down lets say, and no other releases for the game are ever made, then I feel like that's the issue I'm talking about. Maybe that's a lot of stipulations, but because part of the reason why digital is so hated is because it's "fleeting and impermanent", I don't think I'm that too far off.

Limited Run's message is to "bring physicality back to games, to break that impermancence" which is great, but physical media has the disadvantage that there may not be enough copies to go around, while digital can be downloaded over and over again. I think that's a little bit of a contradiction in LRG's message; their idea of physical seems just as fleeting to me because if you miss it, you miss it.

It's just a thought I had for you all to consider, I don't mean to offend anyone :-[ What I'm really annoyed about is the scalper scene, though.

Totally understandable. That's so disconcerting to hear that report from LRG about scalpers wanting to cancel orders when they fear that they might not be able to flip the item for a good profit immediately. Also, it's a good conversation to have, honestly. What really is the best sales model? You want to give collectors a chance to get stuff, but time is money as well. I'm sure Gaijinworks has seen that initial push in the beginning of a campaign for a preorder-only run and then see the interest drop off with the longer the campaign is. With too much time, people wait on ordering and might forget to place the order or change their mind altogether. With too little time, people miss out but it creates a sense of urgency and pushes sales in that way.

I know that you didn't mean any offense with your thoughts.

No business model is perfect, and LRG is no exception. I picture LRG in two ways. The first is a group of fellow gamers like the folks on this website that want to provide physical media for others. Their resources are "limited" but they're doing their best. Then, I picture the folks at LRG acting like Snidely Whiplash; twirling their mustaches and rubbing their paws together as they give the shaft to people that forgot to set their alarm clocks or just missed the deadline.

For what my two cents is all worth, the two games I've played from them so far (Dragon Fantasy and One Way Heroics) have been crappy. I haven't tried Shadow Complex yet.

But, yeah, the scalpers and the buffoons that buy from them are the worst offenders.

At some point there would be a limit to how many they will make, which is the "final say" I'm referring to.
If the Developer wants 30k print run, LRG would probably do it, but LRG's "contract" states that all money goes towards paying for the print run and then once it is paid for, the PROFIT is split 70/30.  If they only sell 10k, but that manages to pay for the print run, the other 20k will just sit there, but LRG made their money back and nobody profited or lost money... kind of.

I probably didn't word that right.  I'm sure, yes, LRG would try to convince the dev that that is too high a number and that they wouldn't make a profit, which of course the dev would consider.  Everybody is out to make money with this, both LRG and the developers, so they have to pick a number that will maintain profitability.

I personally believe that the Gaijinworks model is pretty good, because it isn't "limited", they are just printing to demand.  And while I can agree about the concerns about digital media's lifespan, most companies want to make money.  Even if PSN for PS4 goes down one day, I assure you that if someone owns the rights to a game, they will try to republish it over and over and over.  I will say, now that I'm collecting OG Xbox games, I'm noticing that some Xbox games had DLC, and it is not possible to get that stuff, which is a total bummer.  So the point is totally valid.

As I mentioned in my post above, I belonged to a group up until this week where several of the members were celebrating the fact that they obtained multiple copies using multiple accounts for the sake of flipping them for a pretty big profit. While I would loosely call these people collectors since they do plan on keeping at least one copy of each (at least from what they were saying), it seriously pisses me off that many people missed out on getting Shantae because of assholes like this that deliberately had several accounts to circumvent the 2-per customer max on their games.

I feel like what LRG should do in order to reduce this type of behavior while maximizing sales is to do second print runs, even if they are half the original release amount. That still gives others a chance to obtain the game physically and also takes at least some wind out of the sails of the scalpers.

Whether it is LRG, the latest game console, Amiibos, or anything like that, I have a special place in my heart for how much a hate scalpers. Greedy assholes taking something away from people who actually want it and charging them an increased premium for it is just a total dick move imo. i know it is there right to do so if they obtained an item fair and square, but still it pisses me off to no end.

Ironically I aquired multiple copies to "hook a brutha or a sista up" that missed their window.

Seems like everyone that wanted one got one.

So now what do I do with my extra copy of each!?

:P

Maybe I open one and keep the others sealed.

Maybe I trade for a previous LRG I missed.

I dunno.

I tend not to think that LRG's intention is keeping physical media relevant, but rather to capitalize on game collecting hysteria. When you announce something is super limited in video games nowadays, that's like a guaranteed sale. Collector's want it because it's a one chance deal. I've questioned several times how many LRG titles would be flying off of the shelves if they were mass produced? I just don't see how every release is a must-have.

On the other hand, you have companies like Rising Star, and Soedesco publishing all sorts of indie titles in mass. Not nearly as much fanfare over their products, yet they've put out some really cool looking games in the past year. Unless these companies are just recklessly unprofitable, then I don't see what they're doing that LRG couldn't also do. Outside of the hardcore collecting niches, I doubt many people ever hear about any of LRGs endeavors, which isn't actually doing much to promote these games.

- Cosmic Star Heroine
- YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG
- Nuclear Throne
- Salt and Sanctuary
- Stealth Inc.
- Lone Survivor
- Oddworld: Strangers Wrath

bold ones are new and have never been talked about on this thread. but judging by how long other games have been in this same list they probably wont be out for 6+ months

I saw this posted over on the Neogaf Limited Run Thread.
Quote from: LimitedRunGames
So I know this won't please everyone (I don't think anything will) but this is how the extra blue variants will be sold. Bear in mind that most people wanting it are completionists that want every variant and cover.

- 70% will be sold in a bundle with all three sealed cover variants. Again, most of the people who want the variant want all three covers, so this is the cleanest and easiest way to give them that wish.
- 25% will be added to the pool of standard copies and inserted into orders of those - meaning any orders of a standard copy could end up being the blue variant. If you get the blue cover and don't want it, we'll gladly accept the return and swap it for the regular cover.
- 5% will be sold in charity auctions on eBay.

The charity auction ones will likely sell for "market value" whatever that is, but your money will be going to charity, not a reseller.

If you miss out, see below.

Quote from: OrangeAtlas
Any chance you guys will sell off some of the extra covers alone that you received from Sony? I would love the blue cover but don't really need 2 copies of the game, especially since the blue variant comes with less stuff.

Yes, that's highly likely. IIRC, I had to order 1,500 or 2,500 covers to hit their minimum so they've got a surplus on hand that will come back to us in a few months.

Hopefully this means that nearly everyone should have no reason to be upset at this point.

So essentially if I'm reading it right, if you want a blue cover you'll need to either buy the bundle, take a gamble and order an individual copy and hope for a blue, or possibly buy the blue cover individually later.

LRG is genius tbf.

Drives collectors to buy games that they'd never touch if they were digital. Some bang average 6/10 games.

Personally I was tempted at the start to go for a full set but decided to back out and just go for what I want.

Got Rainbow Moon, Volume and Shadow Complex so far. Really want Cosmic Star Heroine; and I might get Firewatch but that's about it.

I am disappointed I missed out on Saturday Morning RPG though.

Personally all their titles except both Shantae games and Skull Girls have looked like $1.99 Steam titles which doesn't necessarily mean they're bad, but certainly nothing I'd drop $30 or more on. I hope now that they're pretty well know and popular that maybe they'll be able to get more desirable releases in the near future. Would love to see both AVGN Adventures and Nidhogg get physical releases.

No idea what tbf stands for but I disagree on "genius". Then again it's no secret that I've long railed against their "service" to fans/collectors and think how they operate is bass-ackwards compared to other companies like Gaijinworks. In the latter's case I was given PLENTY of time to put in my order for all of their releases and have had ZERO issue getting them. No stressing about being awake/available at a certain time on a certain date hoping I can order fast enough to beat the rush of scalpers/flippers. It almost feels like they purposely cater to that crowd in an effort to jack up sale numbers because as their name implies "It's a limited run!"  ::)

Of course I might be a little aggravated with them right now because my copy of Stealth still shows waiting on USPS pick up from the 30th.  :P

I was trying to think of a way to put into words my thoughts on LRG. This is the most accurate description I've seen.

A part of me takes solace in the fact that I can probably sell One Way Heroics and/or Dragon Chronicles to someone for enough cash to later buy something I would actually enjoy.

The gamer in me wants the physical disc so I can still enjoy the game 20 years from now. But the collector in me can't bring myself to break the seal on it knowing there are less than 10,000 copies out in the wild.

I really don't understand why their whole business model is partially touted as "keeping physical media relevant".  ::) Yeah right, for the tiny, minuscule amount of physical games they make per release, it's almost as if the game never came out in physical at all, for all the good it does.

But don't you see? The physical releases ARE relevant...to the scalper/flipper community!  :P  ::)  ;) If you need further proof, this came from the e-mail about the FireWatch/Stranger's Wrath release this weekend...

Quote
"The game will sell for $29.99 - only 4,500 copies have been produced! Our last Oddworld release on Vita sold out in under five minutes! It now sells for several times its original price - don't miss out on this one!"


It seems to be that they outright encourage the feeding frenzy mentality as well as doing nothing to deter the scalpers/flipper scene so that actual gamers can get copies to actually play/enjoy. I dare say they RELY on those people to help drive their business model.  >:(

But on the flip side, we're stuck with what's really kind of crappy about physical releases! Limited availability, and scalped prices that go way through the roof. Digital at least is more available and the prices are much more stable.

Digital may be more available but in some instances I don't see how it's a more viable option when it comes to pricing. As an example, I was previewing ads the other day and Meijer has Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash on sale for $29.99. I told my cousin about it and he mentioned that seemed high so I checked the price on Gamestop's and Best Buy's websites where it was $39.99 and $49.99 respectively. On both sites, they listed the digital download release at $49.99. Granted, some people just don't shop around or are willing to accept the price of digital because they don't need/want a physical release taking up space but if you're a gamer trying to save money, in this instance it doesn't make sense to go digital when 2 out of 3 places have it for less (or way less) than the digital price.  ;)

Anyway, I DO appreciate that there's a company out there that is willing to make physical releases of games that previously would only be limited to digital release. I just wish someone else would see what they're doing and 1-Up them somehow. Like go behind them and talk to the developers they've released games for and do a 2nd run for anyone/everyone who wants a copy. They could partner with GameStop so any unsold copies could be dumped on them and it could sit in their inventory.  :P

anyone else get their blind boxes yet?

i got octodad ps4 and dragon fantasy vita. 

Not what I was hoping for but that's what you get when you order a blind box.  At least I didn't have dragon fantasy on vita.  I have an extra copy of Octodad if anyone wants to trade.

LOL  ;D

I picked up Stranger's Wrath HD and my cousin bought me FireWatch for Christmas.  :)

I had to  ::) when I saw they were offering the Stranger's Wrath 3-pack. As Telly said, if they're trying to "keep physical media relevant" then it's only so shelf queens can put three copies of the same game on display (most likely to never be opened or played).  :P

One thing that's mildly irritating was they put both SWHD and FireWatch up for sale on the same day, even though the holidays right around the corner. Disposable income is already tight and even more so with it being this time of year.  :( At least Campo Santo had the good sense to order up extra copies to be made for sale on their site once the season dies down. Huge props to them for their forward thinking; that move would have earned my business had I not gotten the game for Christmas as mentioned above.  ;)

Haven't they always done this? I feel like they said something about putting up like 60% (or a larger percentage than half) of the stock in the morning, but maybe I just made that up in my head...

the way I have understood it was that they put 50% in the morning and 50% at night but I have never read through their forums to be for certain.

1/3rd of the Firewatch prints were going to Campo Santo.  So that already cuts out a chunk.

even so that still leaves 4800 that lrg is selling out of the 7300. 1207 left means they released 3/4ths of the stock they had to sell.

They always hold back stock for sale to replace damaged or lost copies and to sell at conventions or at a later date.

Aw, you're the second person I've seen who missed out... I thought about getting an extra Firewatch (I think they were allowing folks to buy a limit of 2 for the morning batch) but decided to save money. But as Telly says, sign up for the dev's email or whatever and you might get lucky with the presale.

I always buy 2 copies (if they let me) just for this reason.
I missed brech & clear and i found someone who missed saturday morning rpg so we traded.
So if I dont get a 2nd chance at any of these games im hoping to find someone to trade with.

Biggest part that sucks is strangers wrath had a special edition and they had a set you could buy to get all 3 covers.
I would have ordered that but now i just hope to get a regular copy. I really don't want to pay a reseller twice the price.  :(

I would have normally picked up both versions but here lately I've only been getting the Vita release. I figured it was the same game on both formats and I've also been assuming the Vita releases work with PSTV though I've not read up or done any actual testing to confirm this.  :P

I just can't bring myself to regard items in my collection this way. I have PLENTY of games in my collection that command nosebleed prices now and I did pick them up knowing they would be scarce and difficult to find down the line (at a reasonable price) but I've never looked at anything I've added to my collection as any kind of investment. Not knocking those that do mind you, just saying for me I can't.   ;)

Tried the chili  yet?  8)


Edit: DERP...says it right on the page that the Vita version of Lone Survivor is NOT compatible with PSTV. Reading is hard for me apparently. :P

For the love of God I missed another one.

Really wanted this one.

I prefer the preorder and make to meet demand model like what they did for Skull Girls.

It's getting really fucking old setting the date then forgetting/oversleeping and missing out.

Then seeing the shit sell on eBay for 2-3x the original price just hours later.

It perfectly captures and promotes everything I hate about the current collecting scene.

For instance, Thomas was Alone was not that popular while Lone Survivor was popular.

its a combination of item limit differences, popularity of the game, how many games actually go up for sale, and many other factors.

for example with lone survivor there were 3600 games made for ps4 and vita, only 3000 of those actually went up for sale. it had a limit of 2 per system per person. while your example of Thomas was alone had 4000 a piece, probably only sold ~3500 each (which already is above the lone survivors numbers), and only had a limit of 1 per console per person.

they only lifted the limit when Thomas was alone stayed on their site for 24 hours.

You then get some odd ones like 'Curses N Chaos' and 'Aqua Kitty DX'

Genius, games that otherwise might be lucky to sell 500 copies (I'm exaggerating somewhat), selling a guaranteed 5k or whatever.

rainbow moon already sold long ago... they were release #15 and 16. im not sure if there will be another sale for any remaining inventory though because they sold off most of their held product back during black Friday.

Anyway to anyone who missed out on fire watch make sure you subscribe to campo Santo's news letter and check your e-mail on sunday for your chance to get one of the remaining 2500 copies. if you don't want to sign up for it you can always check their store at https://store.camposanto.com/products/firewatch-limited-edition on monday. unfortunately they do not say when they will be releasing them.

I feel a little liberated since I quit getting every release. I'm just going to get the ones I want. Wow!  This feels good. I do t have to get the ones tomorrow, but I might get one down the road. Who knows. I'm still holding out hope for that physical copy of Broforce!

Yeah I made it a point to skip at least one fairly early on, because I knew then I wouldn't be tempted to get them all. Way too expensive for me just for shelf trophies. I really want that Dariusburst CS that was announced the other day, but it looks like it will have a $60 price tag...I'll decide once they announce a sell date. That one's pretty import friendly too, so that's always an option.

I'm actually thinking of selling the non-Shantae ones I have. ~_~() The two RPGs I got on the Vita aren't fun and since I earned the platinum in Shadow Complex, I have zero desire to go back to it.

I'm not chasing every release either, already offloaded several. Just managed to snag Curses n Chaos and The Swapper, though. The former looks great fun, the latter is awarded and rave-reviewed to buggery and has an eerie atmosphere, sold!

WTH this is crap, I got on the second the games where released and put 1 of each in my cart and go to check out and only 1 registered. I tried again and again and it never let me buy the rest.  :'(
I only got Cures n Chaos for PS4 and that's it. I refreshed the page, the cart, and anything else I could think off and it always said sold out. I've never seen this kind of BS before. I guess I'll try again later today.
WTH limited run games....  :'(

That sucks :( I almost got two copies of Swapper just in case, but decided to be better about my money and just buy what I need. If anything, they tweeted some stuff about this afternoon/evening's batch: https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/status/827544074492182528

shit that sucks major balls. the second release time is a major crap shoot if you will be able to get one or not. out of the 3 times I tried on the second release, right as they dropped, I only managed to get 1.

There is now a Limited run games reward program! they are sending out rewards tickets with every game purchase by the looks of it. the rewards site is not currently up and running (goes up February 17th) but it looks like the tickets can be used for free merchandise and now for variant cover arts!

I got that as well in my shipment and like their new ecologically-minded packaging choice. My only worry is that it might make the boxes more of a target (if folks are aware of LRG's business, they might know how valuable the contents are), but I'll keep that in mind when I decide the destination address. The padded envelopes from before were a little more discreet :)

they sent out an e-mail last month about it. it had production related issues and as such the production got pushed back. I think they were looking at a end of February early March release.

2 new games are up on the LRG store.

The Swindle (Vita) | 3000 copies | releases February 17th
The Swindle (Ps4) | 3000 copies | releases February 17th
Limited Run #42 (PS4) | 5000 copies | releases February 17th | This is a placeholder as the title will actually be revealed Tuesday the 14th (valentines day) so chances are good its a valentines themed game, dating sim, etc. it is also posted orders containing this title will not ship until the first week of March.

Hmmmm what do you think it'll be? Hatoful Boyfriend, perhaps? Haha. I'm definitely curious. I'll probably get The Swindle. Not necessarily my sort of game, but I want to support the developer (Loved his work with Ben There, Dan That).

There's lots of speculation on what its going to be. The general consensus of the LRG forums is either Everybody's gone to the rapture, Dear Esther, ROM 2064, and Lovers in a dangerous time space.

Personally, I would do a backflip in my living room if its Ys Origins getting a physical release along side the digital ... but hopes and dreams dont usually happen in my world :P

Oh, I can definitely see it being Lovers in a Dangerous Time Space.

Man, if only we could get LRG to do some physical released for some JRPGs... I need physical versions of the digital-only Ace Attorney games...

Wow. That was kind of ridiculous in how fast The Swindle sold out. I'm guessing the flippers/scammers were up early or something.  :P

I managed to lock down all three but my cousin missed out on the Vita version of The Swapper because he was messing around with that code for the Oddworld cards.  :-\

I didn't even realize I should've added the code for the Oddworld cards this morning because it was so late last night when I saw the email and just kinda glanced over it. Hopefully the cards don't disappear before I have a chance to get them. Got the two PS4 games easily this morning but was surprised to see that they sold out so fast. Figured that people were feeling meh about both, but shows what I know, haha!

Luckily for him he has another chance at 6PM to get the Vita version. Still though, if they're going to disappear within minutes of release then MAYBE an extra thousand or so probably wouldn't be such a bad idea. Then again, trying to argue their business model is the epitome of beating a dead horse and I've done it so much now that the earth beneath the beast has given way and I'm halfway to China at this point.  :o

It's hard to know how much they have control over. They say that they always push for a higher number of product, but it's ultimately up to the developer. Not sure how the business numbers break down when negotiations are made.

Looks like I'll be trying to get Mitsurugi and Astebreed, especially Astebreed. And whenever Dariusborst gets a date I will be all over that, although with that one it received a physical release in Japan so if I end up not being able to get it I can always import a copy.

I think I'm only in for Pang.  I'm not a shmup fan, so Astebreed doesn't interest me.  I really have no clue about Mitsurugi... just kind of looks like a bland hack and slash.

Mitsurugi looks okay. I decided that I am going to try and get it, and if it ends up being dull as hell then I'll just sell it and get my money back, and then some.

I'll go for Mitsurugi. Strong female lead + katana (usually) = awesome.

So, I got my copy. It took me about a minute and a half to complete the order. Within that minute and a half, all of the games were below 50%. Crazy.

Crap, just realized that I might miss the 7am PST launch for Astebreed. Might need someone to hold down an extra copy in case I miss it or the second batch.

Let me know if you need any help snagging one.

I'm gonna take a shot at the 3pm PST inventory, but if its anything like the 7am launch ( sold out in 3-5 minutes), I'm probably gonna need help in getting one.

Forgot about the time frame, but checked my phone and was able to snag a copy Mitsurugi like I wanted.  There was only 5% left when I ordered, I feel for you guys that collect these LRG releases.

Im tempted myself ... but canceling an order with Play Asia can be a pain in the ass ... and for only $25, its not worth it for me. Ill just resell it (at probably a small loss) and be done with it.

I'm in the same boat. But with it being Ys and all, competition for the limited edition might be fierce. May just stick with Play Asia for the sake of simplicity.

LRG is teaming up with some Kickstarter for this:

I've been buying random LRG releases here and there and will be all in for the Ys: Origin, and Ray Gigant. I bought and platinumed Ray Gigant on PSN, but it will be great to own the physical copy. I already have Ys: Origin pre-ordered through Play-Asai, like a lot of us, but I'll be find with it and the LRG release if I snag them both.

Well if they did that, it would pretty much go against their entire aesthetic.  If they just arbitrarily re-released their most popular games, then there would be less demand for their future releases.

I think doing very limited releases would allow them to preserve the integrity of their business model, but still help people out that missed specific titles for one reason or another. For example, releasing an extra 1000 copies of Breach and Clear or Saturday Morning RPG is not going to make the game common or less desired by any means.

I agree, plus some people didnt know about Limited Runs when some of these games came out + it to fight against the Scalpers.... who wants to pay $200+ X.x for a game that was released for $50....

By randomly reprinting some of the games... it would make Scalpers more wary of those that have multiple accounts about buy 20+ copies.  And get the games to actual gamers/collectors not Re sellers.

I buy a copy of every LRG game and OST, but I don't buy both versions of a game if there happens to be a Vita and PS4 version. I'm only missing both Breach and Clear games, any B&C OST there may be, and the vinyl records. I also have the Play-Asia version of SX2 and the SX2 OST from the publisher, so I don't have LRG SX2 stuff. Sorry, I love my acronyms.

LOL I can't imagine being driven to tears (I know you're just using it as a figure of speech  ;)) but I WILL be quite annoyed if I have trouble getting the regular edition should the CE sell out lightning fast (which I'm expecting). I'm hoping for a CE but won't be too bummed if it's gone and I can land a regular edition of the game. I REALLY kinda wish LRG had not tried to lump another game on this week though. These $100+ a week purchases are painful!  :o

Since I'm in the thread, I imagine I can't be the only one who's managed to accumulate a small amount of the LRG shipping boxes. They're nice and all but I've no need for 5 of them. I'm hesitant to toss them out though but try as I might, I can't come up with a use for them all. I figured I could use one to house all of my checklists/cards/stickers/LRG swag in but that leaves me with 4 boxes that serve no purpose.  :-\

I guess I could use them to ship trades in.  :P

Blue SCD cover and custom painted cover (Possibly reminiscent of the OG SCD cover) are the standard release.  32X Yellow cover is exclusive to the loyalty rewards program.

I'm gonna have to be in for 1, because there is no way I'll ever get 40 tickets before they sell out of the 32X one.  If the blue one was the exclusive one, I would buy both because I'd like a 32X version to match my 32X copy of the game.  And I'm hoping the painted one looks dope.

This is getting out of hand. It wasn't bad enough they are only released 2k to 5k, but now they are releasing cover variants too. What's next, character variants within the game?

Yeah, but one didn't require you to obtain by using their LMR bucks or whatever the hell it's called until now. I'm not going to lie, I hate their business model and I think they're doing more of a service to resellers than collectors, but I don't hate them enough to not buy a game here or there. The whole cover variant, including one you'd have to have spent a ton of money already to obtain is just BS imo.

I've purchased a few things from LRG before, but I've only received one ticket-thingy from them. It came with my order of Ray Gigant. This whole thing is kind of ridiculous; why can't buyers just get the cover type they want?

I'm excited for the game no matter what. And I never liked that yellow color on the 32X, anyways.

Grab it then, the 32X version goes for about $50.  This will probably be $25-30

The great thing about LRG's business model is that they don't have to offer any form of actual customer support, because even if you boycott them and don't buy their products, they'll still sell all of their products.

LRG can get fucked.

Anybody else not get tickets with any of their orders?  Anybody successfully get the tickets replaced?

I just wish they would stop kidding themselves that they're "keeping physical media relevant". Yeah right, for the miniscule number of releases they put out it's almost as if the game never got a physical release at all. If they really wanted to support that model they would make more games, IMO.

And it's not like physically released games have no flaws either. With such a limited releases like this it becomes so hard to buy the physical version later at a reasonable price because of scalpers and flippers. That bad side of physical games is embraced and promoted by LRG.

I'll admit it, I've bought a game from LRG, and I plan to buy Salt and Sanctuary if that ever comes out. Those are the only games right now that I would be willing to support atm.  :-\

just a quick question for you. do you log into their website every time you purchase something?

to the best of my knowledge they only give reward tickets out to people who are logged in on purchase.

Yeah, all my orders are in my order history.

Like, I get the mindset of refusing to replace tickets because people could be scamming, but you should have in place a system that would assure that customers get their tickets.

They gave me TONS of responses, one of which being that they have money in these tickets, each ticket has an approximate value of $.62 or something, but their Loyalty Reward is essentially Spend $1,000 and get $25 back.  That's what 2.5%

LRG is also being really quiet about the 32X cover being exclusive to the rewards program.  A lot of people are expecting a bundle, but they aren't doing that.

I REALLY REALLY hope this bites them in the ass.  This whole loyalty program is a shit show.  They even said something along the lines of they could've made the whole loyalty program integrated into the order system but they decided not to because it would allegedly cost them $500/month to do so.

I haven't had any issues with receiving tickets with each of my purchases.

As for the business model, I know it's not for everyone, but the number of copies of items available for sale isn't fully on LRG, and I've seen a few sales where the game offered was easily still available the next day for anyone interested.

People gripe about Nintendo not publishing enough copies of games. People get annoyed by retailer exclusive variants. Collector's editions are numbered and only available from the publisher. These are all businesses, and they're handling the strategies of selling games differently. Whether it be produce the amount needed for all pre-orders, sell a limited amount due to production costs, or create a false impression of high demand, I think they're usually making these decisions consciously. How many times have I see an expensive collector's item sit on a shelf for months after release, only for it to drop in price to try to get it to move. Product that doesn't move is a loss to the publisher and the retailers. At the end of the day, that means more to them than people saying they'll boycott or complaining. IMO there is no "perfect" business model that can be applied to small and large gaming companies.

I'm always happy to help grab another copy of something for someone if they don't think they'll be able to buy a LRG game the day of. I've done this before for others and am happy to do it again.

wait a little math here...

~189880 (total of all games made for already released games) / 18 (months they have been selling games for) = 10548.88888 (average games produced per month)
10548.88*0.62= $6540.31 (will be spent per month in rewards tickets assuming a 100% sell rate)

seems like good business sense to me...

its more likely that each reward ticket costs $0.0062 because at that price it would be $65.40

I said value, not cost.  The 62 cent thing is based on that 40 tickets gets you a $25 game.  0.62 * 40 = 24.80

Honestly, LRG is worse than having digital only releases.

Considering what the CE of Darius Burst comes with I decided to give the OST a listen to on youtube....and umm, it's pretty bad imo. The figures sound pretty cool, but I cannot justify the extra $40 for them. Will be sticking with the standard edition on this one, which is probably for the best since the CE will probably sell out in a couple of minutes.

it is only the second collectors edition ever sold on the site. I am definitely with you though they should have supplied at least 7000-7500 total games of it. but I think it was due to more scalpers than normal. higher initial priced games means more profit when flipped unfortunately.

Oh shit, hahahaha.  Shopify changed their process.  It used to be, once you added something in your cart, it is yours, no one else can buy it out from under you.  It worked pretty well at preventing checkout errors.  But obviously caused some issues with users not checking out and leaving items in their carts, this forces LRG runs to last longer than it would naturally.  This is why you could sit there on the site for an hour or something and still have a chance for it to come back in stock.  An item is "sold out" when all copies are "held" in carts or purchased.

NOW, the process is first to complete checkout gets the item.  This causes checkout errors where you'll get a message that says the order could not be completed due to lack of stock.  But it also causes products to sell out naturally, an item is only sold out once all copies have been sold. 

Apparently a lot of folks are pissed that they were in the checkout process of Darius CE and were getting checkout errors due to lack of stock.

My coworker and I went balls to the wall at 8am. As stated in my last post I just wanted the standard edition of Darius and got one with 66% stock left (checked out in about 30-seconds). My coworker got the CE and after checkout they were at 20% stock remaining on that one. I think this might be a new record for a game selling out. Should be interesting to see what happens later today for the second batch.

yeah I was just a tad late to the party (20-30 seconds after release) and because of the new system I was unable to get the CE but was able to get the base game which is good as it saved me a lot of money.

I personally like the new system, for one if the above info is correct then they eliminated the annoying issue where it errors out with stock still being shown as available. wish they would have tested it on more releases first to get the masses used to the new system.

I know Strafe was posted elsewhere, but LRG announced that they will also be involved in the release:
Quote
We're excited to announce that we'll be partnering up with Special Reserve Games (https://www.specialreservegames.com/) to distribute variant covers of their upcoming PS4/Vita games! We'll be selling our first PS4 Special Reserve variant cover for the 90s throwback FPS STRAFE sometime later this month - a different cover for STRAFE is currently available for preorder at Special Reserve's site. Their cover is limited to 2,000 copies, so act fast (only 1,000 of our cover variant will exist).
Note that while we will be selling Special Reserve releases through our site and the covers will be completely exclusive to us - these releases are distributed titles (published by Special Reserve Games) and are not considered a part of the Limited Run Collection, nor necessary for a complete Limited Run set.

But at least folks have multiple ways to get the game if they don't need the CE.

The good thing is if this is a game you have to get/play, you don't have to buy it immediately through LRG for fear of it becoming tougher to find later. :) It will be interesting to see if the PA release does have the same languages as LRG; that may be a reason to buy it through Limited Run instead of PA

EDIT: Though what languages are going to be supported on the LRG release that's different? I don't know the game, but the PA release will have Chinese, English, and Japanese subtitles.

Someone did ask them about the Play Asia release. LRG said that the LRG run was agreed to before the Play Asia contract, and the collector's edition would be exclusive as well as certain languages that won't be supported on the Asian release. But at least folks have multiple ways to get the game if they don't need the CE.
I take anything that LRG says with a pound of salt.  I'd bet good money that the PA and LRG release have the same languages.

One of their tweets: https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/status/861969752159383553
Yeah, hard to know until there are more details from both parties. Probably won't pick it up myself, but I'm glad that there will be opportunities for pickups from more than one publisher for folks who are interested.

Don't you just love Customer Service bullshit.  Everybody else already has their Darius and Nova-111 and my copy just shipped today because I contacted CS asking why the tracking hasn't updated.

"Since your order was a combined shipping order it was packed over the weekend and just shipped"  Yeah, sure.  I think you mean, "Oops, we forgot to ship it."

Not gonna be surprised when my package doesn't have the loyalty rewards tickets again.

That's not cool. Honesty would have done wonders. I actually have had a lot of packages going haywire these past few days. USPS has been sending stuff to odd places... and then back to places it just left... and then to me. Things have been showing late, and I haven't had any issues with the USPS in five years.

It's really unfortunate that they have absolutely zero need to provide real customer support.  Even if they scammed half of the people who bought from them, they would still sell out of every title every time.

Mind you that this is not an official LRG release, they are just distributing for SRG this variant.

No LR-#, presumably no rewards tickets, definitely no postcard or sticker.

There haven't been many LRG's that I felt were worth picking up this year (for me personally), but from the looks of that E3 teaser video they put out that's about to change. LOTS of RPGs in the pipe it seems, which is my jam. ;)

I just wanted to verify this.  Was the LRG release of Strafe actually priced at $31.99 when it went up for sale?  If so, that's ridiculous since the SRG version was only $20 - a $12 markup for a cover variant!

Wow - $32 for a game disc that is known to be buggy, laggy and almost unplayable without patching.  Truly tacky.

I'll just pretend that everyone who bought the LRG release just wanted to own a physical copy (like I do with my games) but missed the SRG release.  I know there are some variant collectors that want and have both, and I think those people are silly :P~~

Lawbreakers physical just announced.  Ps4 and pc.

PC is preorder CE.

PS4 will be up in early August with 5000 copies.  CE will be available.


I actually asked CliffyB about this and they seemed very hesitant because the game is online only and that folks wouldn't want a physical... which I kind of agree with.  But it seems they are going ahead with it.  5,000 seems like a lot of copies.  I'm in for a PS4 CE though because I'll support my boy CliffyB.

July 7th is
Bard's Gold (PS4/Vita) - 2800 copies each
Rive (PS4) - 3800 copies

August 4th is
Lawbreakers (PS4) - 5000 copies (No statement on how many PS4 CEs there will be.)

They added the PS4 CE and its listed at 2500 available.

I personally am unsure of if i even want to pick it up or not... the chances of me wanting to play it within the first year of me owning it is extremely low so chances are great that I will never get to play it while the servers are still functioning.

Lawbreakers was a heated argument on the forums. I put in my 10 cents on the discussion. Does anyone here feel the same about preserving online only games? I feel they should get the same opportunity as other games.

I don't care about the numbering and such.  But I do in fact feel weird about buying a physical disc of a game that may not be playable ten years from now.  Now if the gameplay isn't tied to servers and such or you can play splitscreen or LAN play, then maybe.  I'd still do neither personally, and I'll probably never play the game.

I don't know.  I loved UT growing up and I have a special place in my heart for Cliffy B and what he does, so I wanna show my support.  But where I'm at in my life, I have no interest in playing games like UT.  UT in my youth was fun because I was playing friends/classmates.  I don't have that anymore, so it is not in my interests.

Even coming late to the party I managed to get Rive in the basket and got all the way to checkout... then looked again at the postage cost. $15 international? Closed the window. TBH Play Asia's system is even worse than LR's, but the actual quality of products (soundtrack, presentation box) coupled with under £5 postage to the UK makes them infinitely more interesting than LR's at the minute.

Btw Im going to guess Night trap will be released October 15th give or take a few days to align with Friday because it is the 25th anniversary release of it.

This game has become the next Pier Solar HD; we probably won't be getting it until next year. Kinda regret purchasing this one.

I believe the PS4 version is not too far off, but the Vita version is a ways away.

Assuming the recent submissions get approved by Sony, PS4 version might be ready in August and PSVita version might be ready in September.

From what I hear they upped the print run for Night Trap up to 8000 copies.

Like always I wait until the day of a sale to actually look at the games and decide if I want them.  I was planning on buying both games, but after looking at Plague Road I'm just going to get Oceanhorn.

11000 games total? or is it just the 5000 standard games and the 3000 collectors editions?

Not sure.  No clarification was given, but probably 5000 standard and 3000 CE.

Website says 5000 for SE and 3000 for CE.  So yes, 8000 total.

August is going to be nuts

Good grief... and they claim the unannounced title is a classic, so it'll probably be sought after.

I'm passing on Lawbreakers at this point because I'm certain Wonder Boy is going to be nuts and I want to make sure I'm in on that and that's just too much money for one day, month aside.

It's gonna be

Wonder Boy CE
Night Trap CE
Bunker
Ys Origins

and maybe Lili and the unannounced title.  Good grief.

I'm kind of glad that they keep announcing titles I have, like, zero interest in. Even Night Trap is starting to lose its "insta-buy" factor. It's like they announce a game, I get hyped, take some time to look at the game and realize that it won't be played for a long time.

Thank you for the offer.  I wasn't expecting to not be able to login and buy them today at work.  Looks like they are now limited to 1 copy per person on this final shipment.  :(

I only buy the ps4 versions of LRG releases. so if you want the vita version I can pick it up for you at cost. just keep in mind that the game is not slated to be released until mid august. just let me know before 4 pm. CST (1:15 hours) if you want it.

Any specific reason why?

I realized I was buying some of them just for collection purposes but knew I wouldn't play them. Also some of the titles have meh reviews or just are the sort of games I'm into general (roguelikes, shmups, platformers, horror, etc.).

Same thing happened with Kickstarter - threw money at everything just to realize that I didn't actually care in the end about the final product and had spent a lot of money. Happy to get that Ys Origins when it comes out. Just trying to be more discerning about what I spend money on since I already don't have room to store the items I already own :)

This is why I have been staying away from Kickstarter in general.  Throwing too much money around and the few games that have come out of it have been pretty disappointing.  None of these KS games have solid QA.

I need to cut down on LRG as well.

Dissappointed with LRG.

I haven't tried to get them all but I've gotten the ones I've wanted until this one.

I could have sworn previously once you put the items in your basket you had a certain time frame to checkout, with your items being reserved.

However with Ocean Horn, by the time I'd filled in my details, it was sold out.

Absolutely ridiculous that something like that can happen.

Also allowing people to buy two of everything? Why? So people can scalp!?

Not very happy at all.

They did away with that system a while back... mind you it was Shopify who did away with it, not LRG.

There are tons of folks who buy 2 so they can keep one sealed, but yeah, the majority is probably scalpers.

Oceanhorn definitely had too small of a run, it needed closer to 5000.

That would aggravate me to no end. Sorry that it happened to you.  :(

I watched the Plague Road release sell out like crazy for the 10AM release so I figured that was the hot title of the two.  :-X

I know I'm flailing on a very dead horse at this point but I wouldn't mind if they would fix their business model somewhat to allow for maybe an encore run of hot titles or something to that effect.  :P

^ This. 

Or at least allow a slightly higher total stock.  3,000 for the entire planet Earth?  Not enough.  You can have 5k or 7.5k and still be considered "limited run".  But I'm new to this scene of LRG so I'm sure this is a dead horse that's been beaten over and over.

the only thing I can say on this subject is that the developers do not sign exclusivity deals with LRG. if they truly wanted to and were impressed with the sales on LRG's platform they could go to a different publisher and have it re-printed.

Lili Limited Edition (Ps4) | August 18th | $40 | 1900 copies

EDIT: Whoopsie-doodles I have been informed that I made a mistake in posting lili as both vita and ps4 releases. they are both ps4 versions with one being an LE.

Lili is PS4 only.

I believe there are unannounced games releasing on the 18th and 25th as well, alongside the previously announced releases.

18th is dubbed a "classic" and the 25th is mentioned being an RPG.

So far I want every game this month, but I'm probably going to pass on quite a few CEs because of the price and needing to stop doing CEs and I'm probably going to pass on Lawbreakers because I know I'd never play it.

That's not even a legit reason IMO. Besides the fact that keeping the game sealed is a choice, you could always buy the game digitally to play.

But regardless. I wanted Oceanhorn & Plague Road, but passed on both because my gaming budget was low at the time. I'll survive. I've considered Night Trap but will probably pass. Wonder Boy I'm getting from Play-Asia, where I won't have to fight for it. ;)

All copies of Lawbreakers (SE and CE) will come with a download code for the game (presumably PS4) so you can play the game "immediately" without having to wait for the physical to come in the mail.

So hard that it's become paste and is trickling down the street, they've no intention of changing, unfortunately, it 'works' for them so they're just going to keep on going.

Their story is that the devs decide how many (few) copies are produced, but I'd love to know why developers would rather produce and sell fewer copies and make less money when these sell out so quickly. But yeah, expired equine.

It shouldn't be a matter of luck, I am a costumer who was willing to give them US$64.99 in a product. I was on their website at the exact moment the product was put on sale, I was sent to the check out section and than they told me that the game became unavailable while I was expecting on the line.
This is the ONLY game I've EVER wanted to purchase from them through this system (that I've always judged to be unfair) and that's what I got from them. Screw Limited Run Games and this stupid system of selling things!

Wonderboy is STILL AVAILABLE in both SE and CE... but you have to buy BOTH WB and Lawbreakers.

LRG pulled a Gamestop and is forcing you to buy Lawbreakers because they realized folks aren't buying it by itself.

Nice, jack up the price and force you to buy a game you don't want...  >:( :-\

I love Cliffy B. But I have zero interest in multi-player only FPS's. Not knocking those that love em. It looks like a great game. I just fear the servers going dark or empty and then I just have an expensive coaster.

I wouldn't question buying the game is there was some sort of offline mode.  Splitscreen, local network play, bots, tutorials, story mode, etc.  Give me something offline and I'd consider it.

We need to stop accepting this kind of unfair treatment buy this damn companies!
Selling the game that I want bundled with another game that I've never even heard of is the lowest example of a company playing with their consumers desires (and pockets).

I'm not sure about how does US legislation deal with it, but "tying sale" is an illegal commercial practice even in my native land of Brazil!

I also wonder if the makers of wonder boy agreed to the combined listing.

Well it worked.

The only versions of law breakers currently sold out are the versions bundled with Wonder Boy CE.

I didn't bite. Probably going to just import it from Play Asia.

Gamestop does this all the time.  NES Classics, Nintendo Switches, PS4, X1.  Even CE games like Zelda:BOTW were sold in bundles where you had to pay upwards of $500 just to get the CE because they made you buy a bunch of other shit at MSRP or higher.

The SE bundle is also sold out.

Expect a big bundle with all 4 for like $250. or a bundle with 1 SE of WB and 2 CEs of LB or some shit.

What was with that waiting in line thing at checkout? By the time I got out of line, Wonder Boy was sold out. LRG is seriously dropping the ball with their last few releases. If Night Trap is handled this poorly, then I'll just give up on them as a publisher. They are no longer "preserving physical media" when you can't buy it.

I've always said that LRG has never been about preserving or keeping physical media relevant. 5000 copies is a drop in a bucket and does very little to actually meet that goal, IMO.

You are absolutely right. But unfortunately, I don't see them changing anytime soon.
If we were buying from a physical store, what happened to me, you and apparently thousands of other people is equivalent to the shop taking the product from our hands as we were waiting in the check out line.
Apart from that, even though they try selling the image of a company made of gamers who publish and sell to other gamers, their strategy of waiting one product to be sold out in order to release it bundled with other notoriously unwanted stuff is the kind of attitude that we became used to expect from the dirtiest corporations that command this industry.

Now I need to sleep because, when the final batch becomes available, it will be freakin' 6h AM of my first saturday off in over a month here, so I will need to wake up pretty early tomorrow...
Wish the best luck to all of us.

There are tons of folks who exceed that 2 per person limit.

There is a guy on ebay for every release lists at least 4 copies and sells them.

Also, over at the LRG forums there is a dude who brags that he always exceeds the purchase limits and that there is nothing LRG can do about it.  I'm honestly surprised he hasn't been banned in general for trolling, aside from the possibility that he is exceeding their purchase limits.

Screw Limited Run games!
I've waited so long to get Wonder Boy, I clicked to buy the game at the very moment that the counter reached zero, I waited your freaking website find a place for me in the line to check out or some bullshit like this and, nevertheless, I wasn't able to make the buy the game because it was sold out while I was waiting in the damn line that your stupid poor servers put me in!

Screw this website and their shitty business ideas!!!

At least Wonder Boy is available in an English/Chinese release via Play Asia so you can get it through there :)

http://www.play-asia.com/wonder-boy-the-dragons-trap-multi-language/13/70b4g3

I agree though man, it sucks to miss out on it. Hopefully you can grab one at 6pm too, there is another window available.
Is the Play-Asia version the same game? Or does the LRG version have some sort of difference?

Thanks for pointing this out.

I'll probably go the same route.

I'm getting seriously fed up with companies like LRG and Nintendo not wanting to sell me their products.

I love gaming because it's supposed to be a stress reliever.

Not a stress inducer.

I thought SONY already patented methods to make games less fun.

(No seriously, google it.)

It's gotten pretty ridiculous when I can buy an old Atari Jaguar game easier and cheaper than a current gen release. It like living in bizzaro world.

I cant complain about LRG. I like their business model. Its honestly "limited" games. So many collector's/limited edition of games really arent that. They make so many that its not really a limited edition at all.

This morning (and a few other mornings) get hectic. Its sometimes 10's of 1000's of people vying for 1000's of copies of games. Not everyone is going to get a copy. Its not going to get any easier either. Night Trap, Ys Origins, Cosmic Star Heroine, and other games are coming up in the future.

That's my complaint as well.

I refreshed for a full minute after 7:00 before the add to cart button appeared.

Then waited another minute in their queuing thing.

Clicked PayPal and less than a minute later I was approved but got a receipt saying $0 because they went out of stock!

What the efffffff was I in the queue for then!?!?!? (Just to keep their inventory system from crashing apparently).

I don't mind limited editions.

I just hate the concept of there _only_being a limited edition for fantastic games.

The game itself was made to be played by everyone not an elite and lucky few.

But these physical releases are being made for collectors/investors that want to either flip it for quick cash or put it on the shelf unplayed forever.

I just need to accept that physical media and lasting purchases are becoming more of an exception than a rule. I need to get myself into a mode where I no longer care are being able to recreate an experience years later. I need to be more moment to moment like a majority of folks. I need to not care about spending $40 on a digital download that may or may not be retrievable later.

I am torn between becoming one of those grown ups that doesn't see the point in (currentl gen) video games and wanting to at least appreciate it for the short while I can.

Re-reading my comment. I sound like a kid. Maybe I should just put the toys away and move on to something else.

What else would you move on to?  I have to say most hobbies are going to have these sorts of issues so it isn't going to be any different.  I deal with this on the automotive side too as a petrol head.  Restoration parts for my old 1990 Camaro are really starting to inflate and that has put my buddy in the poor house (he has the project now). 

There just isn't anything else out there that won't have these sorts of annoyances unless you bug-out and move to the country/wilderness and enjoy nature.  Just watch out for bears and moose (mooses?  meeses?  I like meeses lol)...

Filmmaking, screenwriting, book writing. Just playing catch with my son.

Camping is turning out to be a pretty relaxing hobby actually.

Getting back into Filmmaking would be higher stress than gaming but the payoff is much better (for me) because of the finished product and the feels last a lot longer because of the people I meet and get to know throughout the process.

Back on topic. I got luckier in round 2. Got my hands on the CE. Still have residual rage. Gonna go work out. :P

Next week I won't have the luxury of having the day off from work. Man if I don't land the CE of Night Trap I will be devastated.

It doesn't make any sense.
This time, they were supposed to have much less Collector's Edition's of Wonder Boy than before. However, even though I had some problems with my internet connection, I was able to get a copy of the game with no problem.
Since they do not seem to be a very transparent company, it wouldn't surprise me if they actually put more copies for sale now than during the first batch.

I shouldn't be complaining since I was able to get what I wanted, but I will never stop thinking their business practices to but a complete bullshit.

I cant complain about LRG. I like their business model. Its honestly "limited" games. So many collector's/limited edition of games really arent that. They make so many that its not really a limited edition at all.

This morning (and a few other mornings) get hectic. Its sometimes 10's of 1000's of people vying for 1000's of copies of games. Not everyone is going to get a copy. Its not going to get any easier either. Night Trap, Ys Origins, Cosmic Star Heroine, and other games are coming up in the future.

You've stated on more than one occasion that you'd love to work for LRG so it's fair to say you've got something of a bias for them and how they operate. I can't fathom the allure personally. Also,  when I first read that second paragraph I cringed a bit and felt it came off as somewhat elitist. I get what you're saying and at this point we've WELL beaten that poor equine so much that even if it were to be reincarnated, it would die an instant second death from all the flailing that's been done to it BUT this whole 10's of 1000's want but only a few thousand will actually get seems like a counter intuitive mindset for a for-profit institution to have. I think it was dashv who compared them to Nintendo and that's kinda what had sprung to mind for me as well in that I just want to pay you for a product, why won't you let me?!?  :P

I'll be perfectly honest though, there's a part of me that hopes there are some negative ramifications that come about from today's release. I'm not holding my breath in the least but as I said in previous responses, I REALLY wouldn't mind the whole one and done thing going by the wayside. It won't happen I know, but I have to imagine there is a chance going forward that it might hurt smaller releases in the future as people will be less inclined to support them and may even flock to "competitors" like Play Asia. That said, as much as I like what Play Asia has been doing offering up their own versions of releases like Soldner X2 and Wonder Boy, I'd rather not have to deal with international postage if it can be helped.  ;)

While they're unlikely to ever modify the way they do things in regards to run sizes/re-releases, one thing I wish they would knock off is lumping games together for release. I think Lawbreakers might have fared better if it was released on its own as opposed to being released the same week as a highly coveted title like Wonder Boy. It seems to me they would have made MORE money had they not lumped them together. Give Wonder Boy it's own week with upped quantities for the regular and CE (at least 5K on the CE IMHO) and then do Lawbreakers WELL apart from Wonder Boy so people might be more inclined to pick up the CE for it (I know I probably would have done that).

Anyway, another week down and another release purchased. At the very least I'm happy to hear that dashv and ferraroso were able to get their CE copies. Hopefully everyone else who wanted it was able to as well.  :)

I don't have to like it, but I understand the business model. 
If releases aren't limited, they won't sell out. 
If they don't sell out, everyone can get one. 
If everyone can get one, it's not a collectors' item.
If it's not a collectors' item, there's no need to ever buy a physical copy of Octo Dad

Most of these games are not that good.  The only reason people buy them is because they are limited releases.  Without that collector mentality out there, this company will tank.  Limited Run Games has to keep their games exclusive to continue being a company.

I'm thinking I'm going to pass on Night Trap. The thought of getting stressed about getting a game I won't play for years just doesn't sound pleasant. I'm sure there are plenty of no-commentary LP's out there in case I do want to see the game.

But, if someone wants a copy I can try to snag them one.

I honestly wasn't worried about Night Trap until someone pointed out that the horror community might come out of the word work to get a copy.

That terrifies me, because I know tons of folks who don't collect games but are horror nuts and as far as I know they are going to go for it too.

they ended up putting together a bundle of everything that is being sold tomorrow. problem I see right off the bat? its more expensive than all the items individually.

EDIT: Just noticed they are also including protective cases for the SE games.

Still wondering about the 32X box art version, It's not on their rewards form. Wonder how this version will be handled.

Good luck to those later this afternoon for the 2nd run.

According to the Support team the 32X version is available in 3 manners. 

10 tickets to get just the 32X cover.
40 tickets to get the game printed and sealed with the 32X cover.
Random CEs will come with the 32X cover inside.

I don't have 40 tickets, so I'll probably go for the just the cover.

1000 copies were printed with the 32X cover.

No information was given on how many 32X covers were printed total or independent of the 1000 printed and sealed.

Source? 

If that is true then so much time and money spent in an area that isn't as important as what a few of us described earlier in this topic about their cart/payment/inventory system.  I'd like to think this isn't true since it would be a waste of valuable time and resources better spent elsewhere to improve their company and its operations.
cart/payment/inventory system is out of their control.  As far as im aware, there are not many ebay sellers who break the purchase limits.

More info about Ys Origin is out: http://mailchi.mp/limitedrungames/ys-origin-and-asdivine-hearts-available-this-fantasy-friday?e=03be00c178 (the vita CE price is incorrect - it will be the same price as the PS4 CE)

tl;dr:

Collector's Editions are limited to 3k per platform but the standards will be produced on demand for orders within 24 hours (of it going live on Friday morning). At least everyone will be able to get a standard version if they like. Best of luck with the CEs!

Title: Re: "Limited Run Games" is Producing Physical Copies of Games in Limited Quantities

Post by: desocietas on August 24, 2017, 02:29:01 pm
Ys Origin and Asdivine Hearts available tomorrow morning. Good luck to everyone!

My usual trick is to login to LRG, place something small (like a box) into my cart and go through the process to check out (which will involve logging into PayPal, etc) but not submitting the final order.
I'll remove the item from my cart and then start waiting for the games to be available to be added to my cart.
I usually do this about 5-10 min prior to everything going live, and it saves me the trouble of doing all the PayPal 2-factor authentication stuff when there's the chance for the game to disappear from my cart. Cutting down the time from items going to live to the the order submitted page is key!

Wait. Will the 3000 copies include bundles, too? How will that work?

Edit: Actually...I saw what was in the CE. Alongside the game, there's a poster and an artbook. For some reason I thought that there would be a soundtrack. Ys is known for its fantastic music and there is no soundtrack included?

I guess I'm just going to go with Asdivine Hearts.

A few minutes into the hour and there were still bundles available. I went the "click each one" route as I figured everyone would jump on the bundles (and looks like I was right). It took a good five minutes or more before the non-bundled CEs to sell out.

Now that the dust has settled, my poor wallet hasn't stopped crying as I didn't think I'd end up with a CE for both systems. I thought for sure that this release would be more strenuous than the one for Wonder Boy.  :P

Speaking of Night Trap, the other day on Facebook I saw that a guy I follow already had a copy in hand. He runs a game shop and I've noticed other times where he's gotten in games from LRG almost instantly after they've come out whereas it takes a couple of weeks for my copies to show up. I understand they offer expedited shipping but damn...how is it this guy was getting Night Trap when my Drive!Drive!Drive! order hadn't even shown shipping yet?!  ???

I agree. Even though this way the games take around a month to be printed and sent, I believe this is a way fairer system to all the consumers, a wiser business strategy and a much better way to fight scalpers.

Play Asia's main market isn't the US, it's the Asian regions.  PLUS, Play-Asia releases hit brick and mortar stores in the Asian region.

LRG's market is mainly the US.  I think Josh stated that less than 1% of LRG releases are sent to the Asian region.

The LRG releases that are available in Asia are Dariusburst CS for both PS4 and Vita, Mitsugi, Skullgirls for both PS4 and Vita, Soldner, Deemo, Ray Gigant, Wonder Boy, Ys, and now Rive. One Way Heroics was also released in Japan for both PS4 and Vita

So out of everything that's been released so far, that's 13/82, which is about 16%

Willing to sell it to someone on here for what I paid for it.  $45+ shipping.  Just let me know.

new items added!

Shadow Warrior Collection (PS4) | LRG Exclusive Variant | Special Reserve Games | 1000 copies | $40 | Monday 8/11
Shadow Warrior Collection (PS4) - Cover Set | 85 available bundles | includes LRG exclusive variant and SRG cover | $80 | Monday 8/11
The Flame in the Flood (PS4) | 3000 copies | $25 | 8/15
The Flame in the Flood (PS4) Double Pack | 1000 copies? | $55 | 8/15 | includes the variant cover that will not be sold on the site other than this bundle/event cover
Caladrius Blaze (PS4) | 4000 copies | $30 | 8/15

dang they are making these more and more difficult and complicated to post in a consistent format... I tried my best...

First, small correction - we're in Sept. now, so those dates should be 9/whatever. ;) 

I'm somewhat tempted by Shadow Warrior, but would be more tempted if it were $30. Yeah, it comes with 2 games, but I already own the first one so...iunno, I'll think about it. 

I actually ordered Caladrius Blaze from Play-Asia just this morning, $30 shipped after a $3 off coupon code. I'm good with saving the $5 or $6 LRG would have charged for shipping & not having to fight a crowd to get an order in. :D

Just got my Night Trap package... and it has 3 copies of The Bunker and 0 copies of Night Trap.
Just an update to this.  Douglas assured me that they would get me squared away and that it wouldn't take weeks to get this resolved.

It's been a week now and I still haven't really gotten a response on what's happening.  They responded a day and half after I opened the ticket letting me know that they would for sure send me my copies of Night Trap and that I can either buy those 2 copies of Bunker or return them, but it's been over 5 days now since that response and haven't gotten any info on how to return the copies of Bunker, how they will refund my shipping cost, and when they will send me my Night Traps.

So I'm guessing that my 2-3 week estimate is going to wind up being closer to 4-5 weeks.

I managed to get a SW2, but only because I was off today due to weather (I'm not in the direct path of Irma but we're still getting a lot of wind, and since I work at a college they closed as a precaution).  It sold out insanely fast - less than 3 mins, I know. Judging by the prices I saw the original run of it going for on Ebay this past Friday, I probably know why too.  :-\

yeah I try not to either. only reason I want it is because I missed out on the SRG version, and this will be the first LRG release I have missed. figure I have a better chance getting a canceled LRG version than a canceled SRG version.

They finally responded.  Told me to ship back the Bunkers and once they receive them, then they will ship out my Night Traps... which is what I expected... despite Doug telling me that the whole process would be quick and definitely not 2-3 weeks.  So I get to ship out Bunker today and it'll get there whenever (Probably Friday), and they'll maybe ship out my copies in 2 weeks because that's how long it takes for them to ship things... so yeah, 4-5 weeks by my estimate.

It is a real shame that their business model lets them get away with such shitty service.

I was able to get a copy of SW2, only bought 1 of the alt cover.
I got a email about not getting the 32x version of Night Trap  :-\
They asked what game i wanted to use the tickets on instead and I went with Ys pax cover.
I really wanted the full set. Oh well.

no but im tempted to sell them... I have thought about it and if I can help mitigate the cost of releases by selling the extras I might as well try... of course I probably never will.

weren't LRG offering these cards at PAX through a card vending machine? I figure people bought those up and thought it'd be best to sell them off to folks who want to have a complete set of cards that were created for past releases.

Because they sent me EXTRA tickets.  You can only use 1 ticket for every game your purchase.  Say I purchased 1 game and they sent me 2 tickets.  1 of those tickets is now trash.

That doesn't make sense. Their order form and site doesn't say anything about that - just that they may verify your tickets against your purchases to make sure they're legit tickets.  Did they specify this elsewhere? If so, I don't think that's a good place to keep that info.

Edit: I see there was a conversation about it in the forums. And I think I get what you mean. If you were ordering before the loyalty program started, then extra tickets wouldn't be a bad thing. But if you didn't start until after the program started, having extra tickets + any sort of rule that an account shouldn't have more tickets than items purchased would definitely be useless.

Hopefully it's a policy that they let up on or have some sort of note in your record about (like if they had a note in your account stating that they issued you ___ # of courtesy tickets).

Originally their statement was that they couldn't xref the tickets with orders and that they wouldn't replace missing or non-delivered tickets.  (Mind you I was literally the one person they refused to replace tickets for)

Months later they changed their stance to xref the tickets to accounts manually and that they would replace as many tickets as folks want because as long as they are xref'ing it doesn't matter how many tickets you have... which makes the whole ticket system a waste.

Sounds like for bulk orders, best case, $4-5 per case.  A bit too steep for me when if I have loose discs, they are going into DVD cases anyway.  Works for replacing broken cases, almost all of mine are cracked or broken in some manner.  But $4-5 a case from a company that consistently screws up orders AND knowingly under-packs items because it's cheaper... no thanks.  I certainly won't be buying until I hear from other folks about how things arrive... that aside, $4-5 a case is still high and I expect that to be with ordering like 1000 cases or something to get it that low, plus they'll probably charge like $3/case shipping or something ridiculous if they do actually pack it well.

they should be shipping out the ps4 version of skullgirls very soon. they are receiving it at their office sometime this week/next week. the vita version is a bit further away in November. if you pre-ordered both and do not want to wait till November for it to ship out they are allowing orders to be split (unsure if there is additional cost or not). if you want your order split message them before October 10th.

Confirmed on Twitter that it'll be $5 each in packs of 5, so good call on that one. Considering just that regular protectors for most cases cost almost $1 (not in bulk), it's not terrible, and if I were a collector of Sega CD/Saturn/PS1 long boxed games, I'd be happy to be able to replace a handful of cracked/damaged cases finally. Shipping will probably be a pain, I agree.

You're a customer and they are a business, it is your right to "bug" them if their product is delayed beyond a reasonable amount of time.  And this is a reasonable amount of time.  So "bug" away, I would.

Also, I FINALLY got a shipping confirmation on my Wonder Boy/Lawbreakers and Ys/Asdivine orders. I'm having some buyers remorse on Lawbreakers at this point. I read something earlier that said that the game has been steadily bleeding players. I'm afraid by the time my copy shows up it'll be a glorified drink coaster.  :P

http://steamcharts.com/app/350280 [Prob. similar on all platform] its been at death's door for long time now. I dont see it ever recovering, so yes its a over glorified drink coaster :(

Yeah, now my concern is that I don't want to double dip with LRG.  So if a game is for sure on PS4 and possibly on Switch, I might pass on the PS4 version.

2064 ROM, I'm skipping the PS4 version because I can wait for the Switch version.

Looking up the November games.  I don't think I'm interested in any of them.

I'm actually kind of tired of the pixel art games. 

Crawl SOUNDS interesting in that you control the enemies to kill the hero, but it sounds like as soon as you do that, you become the hero, so no real point.

La-Mulana EX is Vita only, so easy pass for me.

VA-11 HALL-A is also Vita only, I need to look more into it to decide if I'll really play it.

Nex Machina looks like Geometry Wars in a different art style.

Think I might pass across the board.

Nex Machina is more like a twin stick shooter such as Robotron 2084/ Smash TV, which is fitting considering Eugene Jarvis worked on Nex Machina.

That one is definitely worth picking up; very solid game.

Aye, it is. They are similar, but Nex Machina is done by the same people as Resogun (which had some pretty badass effects of their own). That kinda of pulsing pixel thing is pretty cool looking.

I definitely thought of Geometry Wars when I saw Nex Machina, but I don't think Nex Machina is confined to a box, is it?

Well yeah, but there are different worlds, with different level layouts n enemies. Each world has a boss fight at the end of it as well, and there are number of additional objectives that can increase or multiply your score.  So its a bit more structured  compared to Geometry Wars imo.

Have you looked at Geometry wars 3?  What little I saw looked different than earlier iterations and similar to what you have described.

Regardless, I'll give Nex Machina another look.

VA-11 HALL-A looks interesting but is a pass for me since it's Vita only. I just don't collect for the Vita, so if I decide to play it I'll be satisfied with a digital copy. But Nex Machina is a must-have, I adore Housemarque and anything they put out is an instant buy for me. Their last couple of games got physical English releases in Asia (Alienation and Matterfall) so I've been looking for one for Nex Machina. Didn't know LRG was putting it out, so that's awesome.

So is the steam running out on Limited Run Games? The only game to have sold out today was the standard edition of La-Mulana. I would have thought Nex-Machina or either of the collector editions would have sold out. 
Title: Re: "Limited Run Games" is Producing Physical Copies of Games in Limited Quantities
Post by: Flashback2012 on November 11, 2017, 11:49:45 am
They've got a small backlog of games that haven't been published yet like Cosmic Star Heroine. There's PLENTY of people they could approach about releasing physical versions of games. I'm sure by now they know the production costs required to make a profit for their endeavors so I imagine they can keep themselves relevant for a little while longer at the very least.

If anything they may curtail numbers enough to make them truly limited and/or focus on Collector Editions to entice people. We're also forgetting about them venturing into Switch publishing, which is sure to lure in scores of rabid Nintendo-loyal collectards who've been largely ignoring LRG because of them only publishing on Vita/PS4.

My thing is that people see weekend long selling as a bad thing.  As long as the stock goes eventually, it is fine from their perspective.  It is also indicative of a sign that they are producing the right amount of copies.

Their preference is 1 or 2 hours to sell out, personally 24-48 hours is prime, because you will get EVERYONE with no real time constraints.  It is a shame that people do chargebacks and cancellation requests when they dont sell out immediately.  Still think those accounts should receive permabans.

new items got added to the sales list:

Crawl | 3800 copies | $25 | Releases 11/17 (this Friday)
2064: Read only memories | limited to 6192 copies (2064 copies of each cover variant, 3 variants total) | $30 | releases 11/17 (this Friday)
Windjammers (Vita) | 3000 Copies | $30 | Releases 12/01
Windjammers (PS4) | 3800 Copies | $30 | Releases 12/01
Claire: Extended Cut (Vita) | 2500 copies | $25 | Releases 12/01
Claire: Extended Cut (PS4) | 2500 copies | $25 | Releases 12/01


I really don't like the fact that 2064 has 3 cover variants but is limited to 2 pee customer. there is a 3-pack but other than the 3-pack and trading you will NOT be able to get all variants of it. bright side though is that they are offering 600 3-packs which is the largest amount of bundles they have done.

I was excited about 2064 but the cover variants actually kind of turn me off. Like let me just decide between a bad cover or no game at all rather than deal with RNG or shelling out extra money for all three covers. The Switch announcement is also exciting but have there been any comments from the devs about a physical version for Switch?

Since LRG will eventually be doing Switch, that wouldn't be an impossible route later...

What's funny is I had only gotten about 4 hours of sleep after being up the last 27 or so but I was cognizant enough to remember that game was going on sale today. I even texted my cousin to be ready for the release and when 10 o'clock rolled around, my dumb butt was looking at reddit and totally forgot to sign in to the LRG site. Luckily, I managed to get a copy just before it sold out.  :o

Edited to include SteamWorld Heist

I only consider them variants because historically LRG prints half with one side up and half with the other side up. so from a strictly sealed perspective the reversible covers are unique. at least they will stay that way in my collection until they are opened. but you are correct me saying 2 varriants is misleading. I will edit that out as well

Yes they confirm in the listing that 1/5 copes contain a pink frisbee. pulled directly from the listing:
Quote
Each copy of the Windjammers Collector's Edition has a chance at coming with a rare hot pink Windjammers Frisbee® - only one out of five copies has been packaged with the pink Frisbee® inside.

Full disclosure, I'm selling the set because I'm gonna get the Play-Asia set next year that has the same stuff & is cheaper - but if you need these for your LR collection, this is basically cost that I'm selling for soooo...... :)

for the 1st time ever I think I'm going to pass on the "Collector's Edition" on LRG.
While I did buy Windjammers for PS4 and Vita, I just cant see paying another $35 ($70 for both) for a soundtrack and a Frisbee. This collector's edition just doesn't interest me at that price.
A sound track worth maybe $10-$15 and a $2-$5 Frisbee? (might get a rarer pink one?) lol
I don't know if it's just me but this collector's edition just feels over priced for what you get.

Yeah, understandable. Price could've been a little cheaper, though the frisbee retails at $12 (being made and sold at Fangamer), so it's $23 bucks for
- the soundtrack (estimating $15 based on other LRG soundtracks),
- an 18 x 24 inch poster,
- exclusive cover art & box

Reasonable but not a "steal." If anything, I was a little annoyed by the higher shipping cost since my Ys Origins CE arrived slightly squashed, and I'm still a little miffed about it.

Welp, I was interested in River City Melee, but the game has already been out from Play Asia for quite some time now. River City Melee: Battle Royal Special. I really like the goodies and art of the LRG variant though.

Not IMO. I imported from P-A and was disappointed - it's just a fighting game, feels like something that should be a bonus mode in a "real" River City game.

This is why I'm having trouble.  River City sounds no fun and DD4 reviewed and looks horrible.

Yeah, I missed both runs. Kid is sick so I slept in/through the first run.

Had meetings at work during the second. Real shame. I kinda wanted both games. Ah, well.

Honestly, I'm starting to not really care about collecting anymore. Feels like they're all out to scam us.

Get off my lawn kids.

I almost forgot about it on the first run but was able to get it squared away. It didn't look like the two games were selling that quickly and it surprised me that DDIV was moving faster than River City. Went with regular editions because I didn't feel like paying more for gimmick packaging.

I wonder what's holding up the release of Cosmic Star Heroine.  ???

It seems like there are a lot of games that have been held back for a long time, since the early releases even. I really hope they release Salt and Sanctuary on physical, seems like they have a lot of cleaning up to do on that page in general.

LRG will be having a Remaining inventory Clear Out Sale the weekend of new years (29th-31st?). it will be your time to attempt to buy up all those games you have missed throughout this last year. obviously there will be no guarantee for them having any specific game of in any specific quantity. also if it is like last year they will have about 5 of their most quantity titles and a random grab for everything else (you buy it and its random what game they send you). they will release more details closer to the release date.

I really hope they publish Battle Garegga Rev. 2016. I read a forum post on their site that one of the staff said to hold off on getting the Korean physical release. Really hope they actually follow through and release this.

Secret game releasing January 1st 9am/5pm CST.

Sounds like they have no intent of announcing the title prior to the sale.

Also, something is releasing January 5th, no announcement as of yet.

Is there any particular reason why they're doing it this way? What if people need to look up the game to see if it's worth buying? I would hope it's at least a somewhat well known title...

Post by: ignition365 on December 22, 2017, 10:35:47 am
LRG announced no more titles for 2017.

Mecho Tales releasing January 1st 9am CST and 5pm CST.  Presumably PS4/Vita.  Blowout Sale on January 1st to sell leftover stock of 2017 titles.  Probably similar to the Black Friday sale.

Rock Boshers DX (PS4/Vita) releasing January 5th 9am CST and 5pm CST.  1 other title releasing January 5th.  No word yet.

LRG stated no Switch games will be released on the same day as PS4/Vita releases.  They also seem to be planning 1 Switch game per month for now.  So don't expect a Switch release on January 5th.  I believe I heard a rumor that Jan 19th was the Switch release date.

Overslept and missed out on the Vita release of Mecho Tales. I managed to get the regular PS4 version with 4% remaining. I passed on the Developer Edition because it felt like they were releasing the same game with a few tweaks and it screamed cash grab to me. Maybe I'm wrong but I didn't feel it justified another $40. Also, there's new releases this Friday to boot...I kind of wish they had just waited to put Mecho Tales out Friday and do the other games next week but these guys have repeatedly shown they're not capable of common sense.  :P
Title: Re: "Limited Run Games" is Producing Physical Copies of Games in Limited Quantities
Post by: ignition365 on January 04, 2018, 10:37:48 am
I guess no one ever mentioned it here, but the other title for tomorrow is Yesterday Origins for PS4 #107.  Already PEGI physical and available worldwide for about $10 I think.

Vita blindbox games will be available tomorrow as they under sold on the Jan 1st sale.

Rock Boshers DX is #96 and #99.

Rumors that Home, Factorum 99, Oddworld Munch's Odyssee HD, the BIT.Trip, and the Fallen Legion games (PS4/Vita) are coming soon due to ESRB ratings being published.

Fallen Legion Rise to Glory is releasing soon from NIS America for NS and contains both the original Vita and PS4 versions of Fallen Legion... so the LRG version is redundant.  Fair warning before folks buy the Vita or PS4 games expecting the superior Rise to Glory edition and only receiving 2 separate halves of a whole game.

Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire (PS4) - LRG
Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion (PSVita) - LRG
Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory (NS) - NIS America (Contains both Sins of an Empire and Flames of Rebellion plus new content)

I can't find any info on Rise to Glory coming to PS4, so maybe it isn't.  But I thought I had heard it was.

I done goofed on this release. I wasn't aware that there would be a 6PM release and I was able to get the Vita and PS4 versions locked in. I just contacted LRG support and created a ticket hoping they'll let me cancel my initial purchase from the AM. Fingers crossed but not holding my breath.  :P

Skyforce Anniversary? First one in a while I've been interested in. Played that one on a whim since it was a PS+ freebie a few months back and it was amazing. Definitely would like to own that one.  Too bad it doesn't include the sequel.

For some reason I had Croixleur Sigma confused with Senko no Ronde 2. No idea why, the games are nothing alike. At any rate, that means I only have to be concerned with grabbing Sky Force on Friday, so my wallet is happy about that. ;)

So LRG has been advertising a presumably local or personal friend run Nintendo Switch news outlet.  Stating that they will be getting exclusive Switch info about LRG.  Annoying.

LRG is advertising that this news outlet is doing a "giveaway".  I put that in quotes because it isn't a giveaway, it's a raffle.  Send the news outlet money over paypal $1 per entry, 250 entries, and 2 lucky winners will win, each getting one of the Labo kits.  Not only is that not a giveaway, the news outlet is explicitly profiting off of the giveaway.  Gross... and unethical.

Jotun wasn't even listed as a possibility.

Jotun and Pang are dupes... and I'm not entirely interested in Stealth Inc.  So if anybody wants to trade, let me know.  Also got the soundtracks for Nova-111 and Lone Survivor... if anybody wants to trade for those either.

Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion (PSV)
Revenant Saga (PS4/PSV)

Keep in mind, again, that the LRG release of Fallen Legion are in fact 2 separate games, and that NISA is releasing Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory which contains both Sins of an Empire and Flames of Rebellion.

Yes, but Doug sounds adamantly against doing that as it would alienate the PSV fanbase.  I can pull a quote if you'd like.

Quote
Yes as of right now it's as it was originally intended with Vita and PS4 having separate stories. We thought about bringing the PS4 complete version out, but then Vita fans (myself included) would be upset that they didn't get a full version. Would have been nice if they made it completel on all three platforms!

Skyforce sold out quick.  Croixleur didn't.

Alright.  Change of plans... No release next week.  Revenant Saga has been moved to Feb 23rd and Fallen Legion is pushed back to March.  Entirely possible that Fallen Legion PS4 will be the Rise to Glory version.  Very unlikely that the PSV version will also be Rise to Glory.  Who knows how this will turn out.  Soera... that's probably who knows.

Feb 23rd is Metronomicon, Revenant Saga, and Oddworld Munchs oddysee.

Metronomicon (PS4)

GREEEEEEEEED!!!!

But seriously... it also comes with 4 protective sleeves (5 games  ::)) and an extra trading card from a past or future release... so really you are saving at least $3.

Not sure if you clicked into the description, but my calculations show the bundle being $2.91 cheaper at least, not including the variable value of the additional trading card (which are usually about $10/piece on eBay).

If anything, it'd be nice if they included a protective case for the collector's box as well as the individual games.

Edit: haha, ignition got there too ;P
