    Today is the last day to order Slime-san, and Kingdom: New Lands (Switch, PS4, and PC) and Musynx (PS4 and Vita) have been put up for sale. LRG seems to be doing more and more open preorders, which is nice, so the only things today with finite quantities are the CEs of Kingdom and the vinyl.

    All I want out of this batch is Musynx for Vita, so I'm just going to wait till next Friday to order it with Xenon Valkyrie+, 2064: Read Only Memories, and Va-11 Hall-A.

    These kinds of comments really annoy me:

    It's like they're completely oblivious to the fact that tons of people are waiting on the games this Friday before they order Musynx. It's premature to assess Musynx's sales as disappointing, yet I'm sure they'll use this as reason not to do future preorders for Vita games or to further minimize the size of Vita print runs.

    Sure, but in fairness, they have a now-closed pre-order for Cosmic Star Heroine on Vita and those numbers weren't great either relatively speaking. I'm sure they can also detect sales trends based on people that ordered other items last Friday and had no reason to put off the Musynx purchase. It's not a perfect science but it's pretty obvious two years in that without a limited print run on consoles like the Vita, you just don't move the numbers of units that you can with an open preorder on a platform like the Switch.

    And yet, they complain about having to purchase the minimum amount and "eating the extras". Yet everyone k ows they will sell all copies eventually.

    I have not pre-ordered Musynx yet but will soon.

    If they were disappointed in the Cosmic Star Heroine sales, I'll give them that, but at the same time, they were also selling 5000 total CEs for it, so I don't know what they were expecting out of the open preorders.

    Probably a lot more than that considering how much people were buzzing about the game for literally years. The reality is that some Vita collectors have moved over to the Switch and that demand will keep dropping on Vita titles as the end nears on production of the carts. The only real way to potentially keep Vita production viable going forward is to rely on the older model of printing a fixed amount and hoping some percentage of scalpers and resellers buys sufficient quantities to maintain the minimum print number.

    There are a number of problems with that. They have to store extra inventory somewhere and that costs money. They also have to pay for inventory in advance, so they end up tying up money in unsold stock. Scalpers and even some collectors don't like it if there is too much extra stock available, and it therefore depresses demand for their other releases. In short, they aren't Amazon or a retailer that is equipped to sit on lots of extra stock for months or years if necessary.

    Well, it's not just a Vita issue. I only specifically speak of Vita because that's all I've been buying from LRG for a while now. They're disappointed in their Cosmic Star Heroine and Musynx sales period, which includes the PS4 versions, and they're claiming that preorders don't work as well for Sony platforms in general. This is just part of a history of them expressing disappointment in how sales go (whether it's the numbers, how fast the games sell, etc.) when seemingly not taking into consideration pertinent factors and laying the blame on other factors that may have little to nothing to do with it.

    The bottom line of it all is that even with Vita releases and the declining interest people have in the platform, LRG is still often underestimating demand, and I hate seeing comments from them that only suggest they're going to underestimate demand even further. Having the Super Hydorah CEs stay in stock for a week and half or so didn't hurt them whatsoever, especially considering it hasn't even begun manufacturing, and at a minimum, that should be the goal with every release, whether it's in the form of finite stock lasting that long or preorders open for at least that long.

    Got the regular editions of the games. Just sold out, all of them! This makes Doug have an orgasm.

    Well, that was a little scary. For the first time in all my shopping with LRG, from their very first release, I got the out-of-stock message when trying to complete my order with the bundle of the 2064: Read Only Memories and Va-11 Hall-A CEs. Luckily, I just barely had enough time to go through checkout again with the standalone CEs added to my cart before those went out of stock too. So I managed to all four games. Right now, there's nothing left except PS4 copies of Xenon Valkyrie+ and standard copies of Va-11 Hall-A, plus the stuff that's still available from the previous week.

    Good luck to those going for the second batch. I hope the stock lasts a good bit longer then, but considering morning batches usually get like 70% of the total stock, I'm doubtful. This just backs up my point that LRG is still underestimating demand. I haven't looked on Twitter or anything yet, but I have a feeling today's sale is gonna be another one that leaves a lot of people angry.

    Open preorders for standard copies of Night Trap on Switch have started, and it's also the day for Observer and Magicka 2 for PS4, along with a finite quantity of Night Trap CEs and other Night Trap merch.

    After a big order with LRG last Friday, I'm enjoying a break from Vita releases, and next Friday will be a break for everybody.

    Nothing for me. On average everything looks better, but there are much better games in each genre elsewhere. If LRG gets The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 1 and 2 I'll be interested in a Diablo clone.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    Does anybody know if there's something up with the LRG forums, like if registration is closed or something? I finally tried to register over there, but I have to receive an email to activate my new account. It's been a day and nothing, not even in my spam folder, and it's the same email I use for their store and newsletter and such and never have issues receiving the emails from those.

    I tried to register some months ago and had the same result. I never bothered to dig into it.

    Today Thumper for Switch and PS4 and Hue for Vita and PS4 are up for sale, with open preorders for all standard copies of Thumper. I believe it's also the last day to order Night Trap for Switch.

    I just grabbed a Vita copy of Hue, and I'm annoyed that LRG is once again not thinking about Vita collectors and selling two individual Vita games only one week apart. There is no good reason not to sell Hue and Exile's End on the same day, especially when LRG basically has nothing in hand anymore anyway.

    I've also had no luck in getting on their forum. I've tried having them resend the activation email a couple times, which resulted in nothing, and then I tried contacting support, but it seems like they're just ignoring my ticket.

    Today Exile's End for PS4 and Vita, Everspace for PS4, and Bastion for PS4 and Vita have been put up for sale. Bastion and Everspace are open preorders, but Exile's End has the usual finite quantities. There's still some stuff left from last week available too.

    I grabbed Vita copies of Exile's End and Bastion myself.

    Is Bastion even as good as people say it is? It was one of the earliest games in the indie boom and was showered with constant praise, but you know how people are. They'll just follow anything that's hyped up, and Bastion was at one point exclusive which when only one fanbase can play something it instantly makes it better. Final Fantasy 3 and Type 0 for instance were praised to no end and were some of the best RPGs you've you've never played, until they got an official release in the west and then everyone realized what sh** they were.

    So just wondering, anyone play Bastion when it didn't have all this hype behind it when it later released on other consoles? Did you still think the game was great. From what it looks like gameplay wise is it's a simplistic hack and slash with little to really offer other than some stylish graphics.

    I remember really disliking Bastion. But since I am after a complete Vita LRG set, I don't have a choice...

    Only Oxenfree for Switch today, and unlike the previous Switch releases, this one doesn't appear to have a CE. If I'm not mistaken, it's also the last day to order Thumper.

    There's Phantom Breaker for PS4 and Vita, which is also getting a CE, and Late Shift for just PS4. That should be it unless they pull out another last-minute announcement.

    Downloaded the Vita version of Phantom Breaker for $3. It's a fun game, but honestly not CE material. Played on normal for the first time and finished it without failing. It adds replay value as you need to upgrade your character (several to choose from and unlock) via skills and strength/defense/speed, etc. But since the game costs $3 right now (and I think that's the normal price), AND the physical copy will not contain the DLC...it's a tough pill to swallow even at $25. I can let pass the PS4 version though, since it's for $10 base price and the DLC would be around $10 extra, so $30 is acceptable.

    But for $60 or $65 for the CE? I personally would pass on it. Fun game, though. I honestly don't know what to do, if just get the Vita or both Vita and PS4.

    What would you guys and gals do?

    Edit: May just consider getting only the standard PS4 copy of the game as it's the best value. If only the Vita included the DLC. If only the original price was not $3...$22 extra is too much to accept. ☹️
