But didn't you say that they still reply to you? Doesn't that mean that if I do tweet during working hours, I should be getting some kind of response?
it's probably around midpoint in the day for them when i usually tweet to them, if i don't get a reply i usually try again later in the day or the next day

Odd thing... yesterday I got The King of Fighters 97 and the cover art has a rip. But it's sealed... so it looks like whoever slid the cover into the case ripped the cover, and just went a head and sealed it anyway, lol.

Yeah I had that with another game. Open a ticket quickly before they are out of extras.

I have like 76 reward tickets.. i'm not sure if I have 4 more. So I wanted to ask if anyone knew what was the last game to include the loyalty tickets? I just wanna see if I have anymore coming before I send the tickets in.

I'm not certain of the last game, but 2019 games do not come with them. And virtually every 2018 game should already be shipped, I think?

I counted close to 120 tickets recently myself. I should probably do something with them!

Anyone receive an order confirmation email for a “Narcosis Replacement Poster”? I just received that today.

Yup, there was a post on their forums a while back where someone had received a West of Loathing poster in their CE instead of the Narcosis one, I'm guessing either they all went out with the wrong poster or they just don't know and played it safe by sending everyone a new correct poster instead.

I just noticed that there is no limit on the Battle Garegga LE. What the heck is wrong with them?

I’ll personally give it a pass which is amazing given that it’s one of my favorite games ever, but I fully expect their store to get crushed.

Would be all over it if not for the vinyl and Saturn longbox.

Edit: I see that the standard says the same thing so perhaps it gets changed? Seems crazy.

Oh man. I already own the JP M2 Battle Garegga Premium Edition... but I'm still probably going to go in on this Collector's Edition tomorrow...

It's $130. I seriously doubt anyone will buy more than 2 or 3 at most, so there should be little to worry about. If an auto-buyout happens then they'd be all cancelled in no time, it'll be fine.

*Checks the Battle Garegga page*

3000 standard copies, oh I guess they didn't want to risk too many. *keeps reading*

"WARNING: This item is not limited - you may buy as many as you like." *loud WTF*

Battle Garegga LE gone in under 5 mins.
That's not that bad, haha.

EDIT: about 400 left of the SE out of the initial 2000 or so

Yeah it was weird including the vinyl AND a CD soundtrack in it.

Got it no problem though, but new checkout seemed a little slower than usual.

Beyond shocked that Garegga standard is still available over 7 mins in.
Same here! It's been a while since I ordered something that wasn't on preorder, so I was kinda worried I was going to miss out! Thankfully it was a painless checkout, but I'm surprised it hasn't vanished faster, given its legacy!

We didn't have an insane number of holds, our international orders are still really strong.
Just want to chime in and politely say I really miss the hold system. ;-; $15 is a tough pill to swallow each and every time...

This is what happens when there is no competition.
If we want the games we have no choice to buy them from you nevertheless, but still doesn't mean that many of us aren't very "disappointed" (to put it lightly) by the disappearance of the hold system, since it meant quite a lot of savings for us.

This, so so much.

On a fact level, I buy a lot less because of this. No one cares because games sell out anyway, I know. But still. I had to skip "Prison Guard VR" despite having bought every other LRG VR game until now....also I won't be playing "Alone with You" and "Aegis Defenders" for 50 bucks total? Sad to say I can't do that. :( (yeah, it's a preorder so maybe a combine will come up, but still)

On an emotional level, this has hit me really really hard. Everything has pretty much been said already, but man, do I hope LRG will re-introduce the previous system or something else. Combines were a lot of work, I get that....but the way things are right now.....it's a damn shame for us folks overseas. :(

I used to look forward to LRG's announcements, but now I dread them, fearing something I want may be revealed. Which is pretty absurd when you think about it.

sadly for every 5 repeat customers they have they probably 30 1 game only customers that could replace them so they're able to do it like this sadly and as Albatross says, it's now at the case of either put up with the extra shipping costs or miss out on it because no one (other companies) else will be able to get the game

Picking/packing product is supposed to be the largest function in shipping stuff out. Combining orders reduces that labor, by a fairly large margin, I've worked both sides of that job. LRG wasting countless hours with CS manually combining everything was ridiculous.
If LRG actually setup combines properly it would've been a win+win scenario, we'd save money and LRG would earn free money off the combine fees. But I suppose their sales systems aren't setup to handle their needs. That's the real problem. I doubt there's some easy system they can buy that handles all their pre-orders, plus hold insanity.

As someone from Europe, I actually never used the hold service. Hearing the problems people had with it actually discouraged me to try it out.

But I am standing with you guys who miss the service.

Except, well, this is a bit too much:

Like, what the hell, dude. If not being able to throw more money into pilling up videogames in your home is really hitting you that hard, you may need to revise certain aspects of your life and/or seek professional counseling.

i'm in the uk and never had any problems with it apart from the fact the packages came at like 7 in the morning and woke me up earlier on that day, i think the only person who had any real problems was Shizuka but i've heard that brazil customs can be pretty crap or that one person that got doubles of everything but that was more LRG than his problem

My issue with hold orders resulted from LRG every time. First time, they mentioned they shipped the game, but the tracking code never worked. Second time, they finally shipped that previous order, but it came with one game missing. Third and fourth times, they declared the full price on the package, despite reiterating that packages were declared with a lower value for Brazil.

"Seek professional counseling"? What the hell indeed.
I'm in the wonderful situation that my life is relatively worry-free, I'm enjoying my family, everything is good. So video games are my hobby, and LRG is one of the main aspects of that. Losing the ability to get more or less every game that I want from them did sadden me, yes. I realize it's a good problem to have compared to many many other potential issues, but it is what it is. Rest assured I'm emotionally stable otherwise.

Well, anyway. I would be down for any kind of combine system, of course, and I do understand that the old one overwhelmed shipping probably on a regular basis. Still, would be great if something would be introduced again.

Is Garegga really limited to 3k copies but you can buy as many you like? I'm kind of scared right now since I had a meeting this morning. I've been begging for this since the digital version was announced for Japan.

Edit: Phew, made it! Hope everything went well with the release and that we can see more ShotTriggers releases in the future. I need 'em all!
