If no preorder bonus, art book, etc is there any reason not to wait for a price drop or sale?


Well, purchasing it at launch will encourage the release of more niche titles in the U.S., but I'm thinking about waiting on this one myself since I purchased Xenoblade and The Last Story at launch and didn't care as much Pandora.

Xenoblade at $50 was tough for me to stomach bit I got it anyway. Still waiting on TLS, figure the reprints will come down in price.

Man, Amazon had the Last Story for $8 really early one morning, but that sale (glitch?) was incredibly short. I wouldn't be surprised if it drops to $20 at some point again, though.

It happened a couple of times. I never managed to get in in those. In not upset though, I've certainly had my fair share of deals.

That's too bad. Terrific game.

Has a release date been announced for that?

Nope. Unfortunately.

Fuckin' hell! March has so many titles coming out!

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk
Tomb Raider
God of War: Ascension
Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory
Gears of War: Judgment
Bishock Infinite
Pandora's Tower

...all games I want... I'm gonna have to make some hard choices here :|

Which ones you think are gonna drop faster in price? I feel like God of War, Bioshock and Gears of War will all drop pretty quickly... and I wanna grab the CEs of the JRPGs.

You can wait for the HD games to go down to $20 or at least wait for the complete versions with all DLC.

I'm sure it is, it's just another game I can't afford to get so invested in. Warcraft is enough to fill my Blizzard RTS needs. Plus, I grew up with Warcraft. Started playing the first one when I was four years old. True story.

HD games going to $20? Complete versions? I'm assuming HD means Hyperdimension Neptunia. As I said, I do like to get the CEs for JRPGs... and those tend to not only hold their value for Neptunia, but actually increase quite substantially. Also, complete versions? I'm pretty sure they haven't released any updated versions for any of the Neptunia games.

Xenoblade is significantly better (and longer) than TLS or Pandora's Tower. Xenoblade is definitely the one to play.

Seeing how 2/3 of them are NOT by the same publisher, don't count on it happening.

English can be fickle. The definition of "like" that I am using in this case is clearly "similar to", but then again, that may be asking for too much on this board.

I'm one of the thick non-English speakers you can't stand. What does "HD" stand for in your usage?

Because August already mentioned that he's getting that game day 1 regardless.

What's so freaking hard about understanding that games like Gears of War, BioShock, etc. get complete editions/game of the year editions 6 months to a year after they are released, and can be found for $20? Are people so dense on this board as to not realize this?

Simply put, only a fool buys those types of games at $60.

Where did he say that? My English is not so good. He says he wants the JRPG CEs but says nothing about "day 1 regardless." I guess that's my fickleness rearing its ugly head.

I guess my point is you point out those other games will drop in price like it's a big mystery to CAG, even though August acknowledged himself in the post you replied to. You repeat what's already been mentioned to him a couple times like it's brilliant advice, only using cryptic "HD" as if everyone should know it means high definition except for the high definition games you're not talking about.

You should take your own advice, don't be an ass.

All the games are "HD" and by your wording I thought you meant HD collections. Maybe you should try wording stuff a little better. Also, those games you've highlighted all have Collector's Editions.

Yeah, but it would also be stupid to buy those day 1, seeing how they always linger around long enough to drop down massively in price.
