My first ever meme, created in honor of this momentous occasion.
This one's for you Jim.
This one's for you Jim.
Have you tried Amazon or other internet stores? Even at worst you usually only have to wait a month if it's out of stock and then it gets send straight to as soon as they get it.NameIsRobertPaulson said:Previous pre-orders: Disgaea 4, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy: Dissidia Duodecim, Dynasty Warriors 7, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, Sengoku Basara, Tactics Ogre: PSP.
Current pre-orders: Metal Gear Rising, Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires
Get the idea yet?
Many of these games wouldn't be stocked on the shelves if I had not pre-ordered a copy. The biggest exception (FFXIII) was the worst of the bunch, and my least favorite game this generation so...
I don't ever remember getting the games before anyone else, but it was a way to ensure you could actually get the game on release day, just in case it sold out quickly.trty00 said:I used to be into the idea of preordering. I mean, you got to get it before everyone else right?
Honestly the only thing I don't like about Bethesda games pre-Skyrim is that they hard crashed.KeyboardSnorlax said:True, but at least bethesda bugs are usually just funny.. like that one in New Vegas with that dog at the starts eyesvxicepickxv said:Pretty much the only companies that I can trust now for preorders are Atlus and Bethesda. Which is funny, because I know when I get a Bethesda product, I know it's going to be buggy.
so you wouldnt have played it had you known about the ending?Saviordd1 said:Mass Effect 3 is what got me out of preordering games, this just confirms it for more people.
Oh, wow. You came here with a heart full of emotions and a brain full of words, it seems.mfeff said:The blame here, lies squarely on the feet of the developer and the serious lack of investment into the work presented. Tantamount to fraud, with no legal ramifications due to the nature of the software industry.
A craftsman or engineer would be severely reprimanded if not dismissed or brought liable for this sort of product...
Being it is a game game, fuck em; thanks for the new Ferrari. Hell even toy manufacturers are held to standards.
Reserves? "Jazz Hands!"
.....This is probably the worst place to put this, but you've really made me want to pre-order Bioshock:Infinite now.mike1921 said:http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/us/en/pc/games/shooter/bioshock-infinite-na/Saviordd1 said:Mass Effect 3 is what got me out of preordering games, this just confirms it for more people.
I honestly hope people take this to heart and don't preorder games based on previews or brand recogn....
So much for that idea.
$10-$17 off for preordering. I think Jim and TB both neglected to say anything that really would always be against pre ordering a game for an actually tangible and significant benefit (It's so fucking rare a preorder bonus is significant they can't be blamed). For context: aliens pre-order came with fucking multiplayer skins. And it's from gearbox, who to my knowledge were heavily involved in duke nukem forever.
It's a risk versus reward scenario: In aliens the potential reward was fucking tiny and the risk was this scenario playing out right now.
