It's not figuring out the current time that's the problem but rather being aware of the beginning of daylight saving time in general, especially since it's a couple of weeks later in Europe.

On the other hand, many Americans will be just as confused when ordering from SLG, Red Art or SuRG, so it probably balances itself out. :)
It’s a good thing there’s a countdown timer then. ;)

I have received three shipment notifications at once (Yay ! \o/) but after combing through my orders and comparing them to the shipping notice I'm missing 2x Saturday Morning RPG and 1x Jak and Daxter. It's really unfortunate, and judging by your post this anomaly looks quite common :/
I've created a ticket as soon as I saw this. Waited long enough to not have three games missing.
Jak isn't in stock yet. Perhaps SMRPG just wasn't in stock before they determined what held items they were going to release? Or were they in stock in 2018?

There we go, another ticket created. Tracking codes aren't working and one game is missing from the final shipping email.

You mean this "shipment has left facility and is en route to carrier"? I have that too but I THINK this just means the label has been printed and it could take a few days or weeks for them to actually go out. Please someone correct me if I'm mistaken.

EDIT: "on its way to carrier" pretty clearly says that the carrier doesn't actually have it yet, I guess ^^
Its been updated 3 times for me. This is what it says:

03/05/201919:14 In transit to carrier's US operations facility
03/04/201920:14 Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit to carrier
03/04/201916:59 Shipment information received by Asendia

My understanding was that the first one means a shipping label has been accepted, the second means a pickup has been sceduled, the third means its been picked up and headed to the sorting facility.

I just had a reply to my ticket I made yesterday; my Thumper CE order they're looking into, Jak is still in manufacturing (which I already knew based on their updates page), the other one which you also ordered is Saturday Morning RPG which they said they're waiting on the arrival of more copies from the manufacturer since they didn't send enough to cover all the held orders.

Yesterday I got 2 packages in the mail from Limited Run games. I thought one of them was Shantae, and maybe the other was Windjammers which was expected to ship soon. I open them both, and they’re both a copy of Shantae for Switch lol.

Today I check my mail, and there’s another package from Limited Run games, I open it up and it’s another copy of Shantae for Switch lol. So far I’ve gotten 3 copies when I only order 1.

Has there been any news regarding the reward program?

I think last I heard there was some hint that there would be something done for people who have a good number of tickets and points, but maybe not exactly enough to get one of the bigger rewards like a free game? I think I have like 30 or so tickets and like 470 points. Should I just trade my points for 2 CE protectors or wait?

No wonder they run out of copies to replace the ones that get damaged during shipping =/
They better not cancel my Shantae LE order because of their incompetence.

Do you know when there were no issues with shipping from LRG? It was when Doug and Josh were shipping the games themselves. I’m not one to make such jab, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was because employees don’t care or aren’t invested in making a good job.

They also have 100000x the inventory since those days.

This is most of warehouse work in a nutshell :x In general, not a lot of people care about taking care of stuff they package (hi Amazon) or even deliver (right, UPS??) and lots don't get paid nearly enough for what they are doing (well, that's the job market in general).

I always got tracking codes ending with "US" that I could track with my post office website, but with the held games from last year (which they forgot to send me Night Trap, hence why I opened yet another ticket), I'm getting UPS and USPS codes. Am I the only one?

This should be pretty cheap, yes? Isn't there thing to sell games for around $10 over the digital price?

Just in case you're confused, this is the 8-bit style game that was a kickstarter stretch goal. The main game will have a normal physical release, yes.
Ooooooooooooooooh... Well that's pretty cool they're bringing it to a physical medium. Thought this was the main game for a moment.

I need to stop buying digital all together. First Sonic Mania (plus got announced a week later) and now Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Hopefully it's only $20 or $25.

Their E3 conference last year announcing Golf Story for Switch got me interested in them in the first place. So good for them!

Look again, LEs are there. 3000 Switch, 1500 PS4/Vita. So that's 3500 Vita copies total, PS4/Switch regulars are preorders. With 6 sku's, 2 of which are unlimited, I think I maybe don't care about missing the Vita copy.

I mean, LOL. Either you're drunk or your keyboard is fucked. On a serious note, be prepared to wait for Celeste. LRG indicated they're still evaluating waiting for the final DLC. IMHO they will be waiting so you won't see your game until this summer at best. Personally I'd rather get the full game on disc.
