This game looks like it has a ton of potential but I hope to see more in game footage before deciding. The $20 credit makes it more worth the risk though.

I'll probably go ahead and preorder. I can always cancel it later.

I'm paying big attention to this game. The guy from Beyond played it a bit and he said it feels really good.

Looks like a generic shooter that will have a $20 price drop within 6 weeks, then have a $20 coupon in the @gamer magazine by summer time. Not this time, EA!

They turned one of my favorite series into a crappy FPS. I'll be talking with my wallet and not buying this generic FPS crap. Give me back my old Syndicate.

Good news that Amazon hasn't given up on their $20 pre-order promos. Although, their stinginess last year did save me money by waiting for games to be cheaper (i.e Resistance 3).

I hope this puts to rest the whole "there is already a thread for it" complaints :)

I've never missed a deal I was interested in because it was buried by too many threads, but I've missed plenty of deals because they were buried inside huge threads. Yes, there is a grey area but any good deal deserves its own thread.

To be honest, this game just looks like another corridor shooter from Starbreeze. Like Riddick with psychic abilities.

I've had my eye on this one for awhile now and I think it looks amazing.

Now to decide if I need it now or if I can wait out a price drop... I don't think its going to be the bargain bin game that others in here think. Thanks for the heads up Cheapy.

I think this looks pretty great - but I agree with several of you: it will see a sale price/price cut within a couple of weeks of release.

It happens with all EA games - no matter how glorious the game is. Dead Space 2, BF3, Alice.... I could go on forever. The $20 credit will be irrelevant.

Same reason I'm holding out on a launch purchase of Kingdoms of Amalur...

Thanks Cheapy!

Syndicate and ME3 are the only two games I really want to play at launch. So the credit Is a bonus.

Starbreeze makes great games, so I don't see the problem.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.

Yeah EA published games don't really hold there value for long. BF3 dropped down to $30 a month after it was released by Black Friday. This game also looks a little like Brink to me, so going to wait for reviews.

Starbreeze is pretty good (The Darkness was awesome, Riddick was good) and the art style in this screams Deus Ex:HR to me with coop which is a great thing

Did you play The Darkness? Wouldn't call that the usual corridor shooter.Starbreeze is one few companies that actually focus on making a great single-player mode,unlike most where it's shoehorned in.

Now this game looks great,would preorder it if I knew I what the PC specs were.

Had my eye on this one. Nice to have an excuse to preorder. :) I'm sure it will be down to $40 within a few weeks like every other EA game, but why not get it earlier and pick up the bonus weapons.

- This isn't some moronic military shooter so both those insults are invalid
- Starbreeze doesn't make "crappy/generic FPS", they're one of the best developers right now

It's either this or wahhh can't control teammates, I rather not deal with teammate AI if developers STILL haven't made AI (in general) better than FEAR 1 after almost seven goddamn years. Whatever, feel free to ignore it while I play a great game in the coming months.

I think this game looks very good. My only worry is that it will be one of those games that is really fun to play, but the single player is only 8 hours. I hate when SP campaigns are short, as I'm more of a SP guy than MP.

Outside of RPG's, there are few exceptions to that length being the average. That, and many games that seemed longer in the past were due to the design, which wasn't as forgiving with checkpoints or revives like today.

I generally go back and play games I buy, though, so to me an extra hour or three doesn't really make or break whether or not I got worth out of my purchase so long as I enjoyed it.

Horatio "Gene Shalit" Sanz sez: "It would be a Syn to let the publisher or length indicate if this is a Day One purchase!"

Sorry.

The problem is Star Breeze is an example of a zombie company, everyone behind the games they did before is gone.

Except strategy, fighting games with good SP (SC2's weapon master mode alone took 15), "sandbox", metroidvania,

Hell, even older shooters and beat-em-ups were 15 (And with secrets, non linear levels and actually fun action, had replay value).


**** each Ace Attorney is more than 8 hours to my memory.

Not going to even bother till this reaches the $15 or less price point. It's going to be an 8 hour or less single player campaign and it will drop to $15 by summer probably on Origin.

I been burned too many times last year buying games at launch, even with credit and beating them in like 3 days (I am looking at you bulletstorm and shadows of the damned).

We've had this in the Amazon credit thread for a WHILE, lol (the one with the title that needs to be updated, so people probably don't visit it - but I did pm Shrike4242 to change it more than a month ago, like he said to, but is still outdated). Thanks, OP.
