Just saw this while browsing through their catalog. Had a google offer's GC to use up before the 15th. Thought maybe this would be interesting enough to put down $$ for.

yeah like shadows of the damned and others. wish i could support the devs at this price, but ill wait til cheap new and support them that way ;)
when games like mw3 and ff13-2 etc are on sale, you know these lesser titles will drop like a rock. just look at asura's wrath/syndicate/blades of times/etc.

Unfortunately after seeing what happened to Shadows of the Damned, I'm inclined to agree. These "cult" titles really need to be priced in a way that gets people who would otherwise wait for a price drop to hop on board sooner. Remember when NFL 2K5 was released brand new for $20? That decision proved so lucrative for Sega that EA signed an exclusivity deal with the NFL.

It will if everybody shares this mentality. It's a shame that games worth playing like this and Alice as well as SotD always flop because everyone waits. I know we're on CAG and that's the point, but even so. :cry:

I always try to support GrassHopper as much as possible, but I have gotten burned each and every time with buying all their titles day 1.

Killer 7, No more heroes 1, no more heroes 2. And they all drop so quickly down it hurts. I really want this title so we shall see.

Same here, but we all have to face the facts that it's going to the bin pretty fast. The good news is that people who like Grasshopper & Suda won't have to wait long for a price drop.

Shadows Of The Damned was pretty great for the $15 I bought it for.
Same goes for NMH 1 and 2.

I don't "mind" buying these titles for full price as I have in the past as they are really great, but it just is upsetting to talk into a store or see on amazon them drop by like $40 a few weeks later. I remember pickup up Killer 7 when I worked at Gamestop for the full $50 and then like a month later we had it on sale for $10.

I think I have finally learned my lesson.

Shadows of the Damned didn't drop as quickly as people seem to be saying. I remember because I got it at release, and a couple other members here were waiting a while for any kind of sale. It really didn't get cheap for a few months.

I'll be buying this game because I'm a fan of Grasshopper.

Yeah, I had to wait a long time for Shadow's of the damned to drop. I wound up buying it from Gamefly, used, for $15 during the holidays, so that was 5 going on 6 months after release.

I haven't seen enough of this game to really get my interest worked up, and also I have a bit of a backlog to clear through, otherwise $45 free shipping seems a good deal.

We're talking about two different publishers, too.

There have been some surprising games lately where I expected instant price drops and they either took many, many months to come or it still hasn't happened. I would've thought Asura's Wrath would at least have dropped to 29.99 by now.

That would have been the best $20 i spent on a game that year, if not for Katamari Damacy.

I remember getting Alice for 30 just a couple months after release, and SOTD was something similar, maybe I paid 40 for that one. I understand both sides of the coin on this debate despite being a CAG. My issue, however is that I just really don't feel like any game is really worth paying 60+ for...I pay 40 for what I really want and 20 or less for most others, regardless of what development team created it.

45 is an ok price for this game for a day 1 releas. This game is on my amazon wishlist but I still won't buy it until it hits 30 or less. It looks like a fun game.

Even a huge known IP like final fantasy cannot sustain a 59.99 price point. It took just 2 months and 2 weeks fror FFx-2 to go from "59.99" to 29.99 currently on amazon. or even 15 at bestbuy with coupon.

I went to see what the price of madden 12 was on PSN.... listed for 59.99... 9 months after release.. and its 59.99 on PSN.... talk about a scam. Another reason I hate digital and PSN

not really due to the mentality. its just 60 dollars for a game that will like damn near every other game tank in price in a month or two. heck ME3 i saw it a WEEK LATER for 40 bucks somewhere. i cant remeber where. but seriously 60 bucks is just downright ridiculous in some aspects. ME3 will probably now be stablizing at around that price.

that aside some games need a 30 dollar price point. not all games are worth 60 bucks. they just arent.

put this game at 30 bucks it triples in day 1 sales easily. at 30 i'd preorder this now. at 60 nope.

games like COD can launch at 100 bucks probably and still outsell the previous one.

FF - 13 -2 im shocked hit 15 bucks with a coupon so fast.

i think i am finnally learning my lesson 60 day 1 isnt worth it in most cases.

Is there a lead console for the game? I know that when a game uses the unreal engine the Xbox 360 generally performs better, although shadow of the damned supposedly was slightly better on the ps3.

I really hope this game gets enough sales that Suda and Grasshopper will keep making games. I don't want them to think that there is no interest in their games just because people are cags and the fact their games often will get overlooked because it's released right behind or around AAA Tiles :( It saddens me that countless people will run out and buy Halo (Insert # here) and Call of Duty Modern ReSkinnedMaps (Insert # here) while Suda/Grasshopper's stuff doesn't get the love they deserve. Anyone else feel this way?

I know :cry: Oh, and before my post get misinterpreted I'm not hating on Halo or CoD. I'm just saying people seem to buy the same thing over and over with minor variation instead of stepping out of their comfort zone to try something new even with decent reviews.

Most people don't buy that many games so spending $60 on a game they aren't sure about is a risk. However, they know they can get 100s of hours of entertainment from COD and know all their friends will be playing too.

At PAX East it was playable on the 360. I'm sure they would want it seen in the best way so I take that as an indication that 360 is the way to go
