And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

I agree. Many games releasing pre order bonuses that help the player over others is quite stupid.

Borderlands 2 did something interesting, though. It basically just gave you like 4 guns that you end up replacing in like 2-3 levels anyway.

The relic you got was pretty useless, as well, but I don't really know what kind of category I would attach that as.

I like the idea of the non gameplay breaking skins, but a bonus mission might be a bit much.

But all in all, I don't preorder unless I love the company in question.

Oh, and that whole different store, different bonus is one of the most idiotic strategies I've seen.

I was talking more the general concept of the bonus and how they are handled at a retailer level, I'll agree some bonuses are shit because they break the game or fragment the user base online and bonuses for specific retailers are bullshit.

He phrased it poorly but the console versions of Bioshock: Infinite are getting in game preorder bonuses and the PS3 version is also going to include the first Bioshock as a bonus not related to preordering it.

@Whatis

That's kinda bullshit, but that's why I don't preorder.

DC Meets League of Legends

I preorder games I know I'll want, for systems I want. Done it for years, and nothing will stop me from doing it.

I rarely preorder anymore because most games I want just release a GotY within a year so fuck paying $60 for a game and another $20-40 on DLC.

Sucks that the site limts you on how many messages you can have in your pm box, sucks even more when it deletes the oldest one you have just so you can receive the newest one.
Had I known this ealier I'd be saving a crap load of my old pms.
