Should I buy or no?

Should I buy dat game?


Something it seems like peeps have trouble with around these parts of town is whether or not they should pick dat game up that's on sale rite meow. Welp, weiners and weinerettes, here's a basic guide:

There are two fundamental groupings:

-Backlog

-Immediate Play


For a backlog: Be VERY wary of backlog purchases. Here are some things to remember:

- Never, ever buy an indie game if it's backlog regulated. Between groupees, bundlestars, indie royal, indie gala, and, of course, Humble Bundle, you never know when it will pop up in a dollar tier along with three other games. The only real exception I can think for this is if there's a price glitch that gives you a "too good to be true" price. Snatch dat up, depending on the discount.


- If it's not an indie game...well, you still never know. Between WB, EA, Deep Silver, etc, it's well established that no company seems to be off limits for a potential bundle. That being said, if you like a price, definitely consider it. I try not to purchase any AAA backlog games unless they're both 75% off and five dollars or less. You also have to remember, that even if a game doesn't show up in a humble bundle, it may be in a gaming bundle, like on Amazon. Example: Tomb Raider has not been below 10 bucks (I believe) on it's own yet. I picked it up, however, in the Amazon Tomb of the Sleeping Hitman Pack - Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and Hitman Absolution for about 13 dollars, I believe. Always remember that there are constantly sales going on, and once a game hits a new lowest price (unless a glitch) it will always hit that price again, if not lower, at some point.


For an immediate play game...all bets are off. Personally, if I plan on playing a game either immediately or after I finish the game I'm on, I'll pay whatever it costs. Example: I plan on pre-ordering Dark Souls 2. That will be at least 40 dollars, depending on what type of pre order deals float around. Worth it though - it's a game I really want, and unlike 98% of the games I buy on PC, it won't sit around in my backlog for months on end.

So basically, deciding whether to buy a game should be really simple




great

Actually, I'm beginning to prefer Mind Link's approach to reviewing, perhaps he should start a blog called "BBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FuCKKK..."?
