There are still benefits to preordering a game. First you are getting the discounted price. Second you are getting whatever preorder incentive the business gives, in this case for SF you got the M.Bison Battle Costume as well as the digital comic or whatever. If you bought SFV now you would have to pay the additional $2 and you wouldn't get any of those incentives.

 

Pro tip, a lot of times ppl will pay upward amounts for exclusive costumes. I sold the M.Bison costume on eBay for $35. There are ways to lower your costs, you just need to figure them out.

Don't take this the wrong way guys, but if you are waiting for the first update in March just to get the game, the game is probably not for you. Neither will it be a game for you in June or ever. 

 

All they are adding in is Alex DLC (which is pointless if you don't like the game now anyway), a game store (again, not for casual fans), a simple tutorial mode (somewhat helpful, but not a main draw) , challenge modes (a little better, but still not what fans are asking for), and 8 player lobbies (which aren't what casual fans want anyway, because the main complaint is the lack of offline content).

 

The June story mode thing is only 1-2 hours long, and mostly likely will be half-assed. 

 

Main point is, if you are expecting heavy single player content to be added in over the course of the game's lifetime, it probably isn't going to happen, no talks of an arcade mode yet, or if the story mode has any replayabilty.

 

So you are either better off getting Mortal Kombat X XL, waiting for Guilty Gear Revelator/Blazblue Central Fiction, or waiting until the game hits 20$.

 

Bottom line is, the game isn't worth paying more than $20 for, if you haven't bought it already, or if you don't want it at this stage. I actually like the game a lot though, but I just simply love the mechanics of fighting games, so I'm the exception that willingly takes it up the ass from Capcom... and yes... it hurts...

I understand, but I was victimized by multiple games, games in which I loved. WWE 2k15, MKX to name just a couple. I hate to buy games at launch now only to bore with the early stuff by the time the extra stuff releases. I bought season passes for each of those and ended up not playing any longer past the 1st dlc. I'm just scorned by that stuff now. My favorite part of MKX was the story however, I barely played arcade mode and here comes the 2nd dlc pass.

 

Now, If I'd paid cheaper for those games, then I wouldn't have a gripe. But to pay full price plus some for games that I in the end threw cash away on isn't something I want to repeat again. So enter SFV, a game that was released "incomplete". I did initially buy the CE, but then I'd still need the SP, so I cancelled. I bought the disc alone yesterday, but cancelled because of the chance of the game dropping in March to grab more adopters for the added content. Then comes today.......

Games depreciate in value and cost. It's nothing new. It seems like you may be better off just waiting until games hit bargain bin prices. GOTY and complete editions have become more of a trend over the last few years. If you have a backlog, then hold off on games like Fallout 4 when a GOTY is inevitable.

Resident Evil 6 for Xbox One is up for preorder, but the 20% Prime discount isn't applying... Any reason it wouldn't be eligible?

Sometimes it take a couple/few days for it to be applied to new items.  Previously, if you had an item that didn't have the discount on it and pre-ordered it, you'd end up with a doubled discount, or 40% off.  Not any more, as it seems.  Sometimes, it's not applied automatically as well. I'd wait for it to show up in the price and then pre-order it.

It's up for PS4 also. Had no idea this was being released, at $16 I'm definitely in for one! Thanks for the heads up!

My favorite and best "pre-order" item was the Hyrule Warriors Pre-order bonus at Amazon. It was for costumes from Twilight Princess I believe. I paid $60 for the game, and the pre-order bonus went for $140 on Ebay. I have no idea why it was so high, but there were others selling for $150+, so I listed mine at 140 and it sold the same day. Crazy!

It is a lot of fun.

I enjoyed it.

The only thing I didn't like was the excessive number of quick time events.

It's one of the best co op games out there. If you plan to play co op it's definitely worth $16. It's worth $16 regardless IMO.

FTFY. They've gotten my money twice now, they're not getting it again. It isn't like RE4 (which I've bought FOUR times now).

I remember RE6 being super long. Could have been due to me playing it coop so I couldn't play it everyday but the game is not short.

I thought it was awesome honestly. Cool characters, over the top action, great setpieces, incredible production values, just an all-around blast to play. There are four separate campaigns that each last around 6 hours, so it's a long game. The QTEs were annoying, but it sounds like they're making some tweaks to the remaster to smooth over some of that stuff.

Thanks for all the input on RE6. I may just wait for Black Friday for all of these like I usually do for remasters.

Didn't see anyone mention this but the Amazon Prime Store Card gives an extra 5% back.  Given that you save a dollar  in gas compared to driving to BB, plus you dont have to pay the $30 GCU membership (assuming you are a Prime member anyway).  It's getting closer.  If you're a real cheapass you can even get a dollar in XBL credit by choosing the no rush shipping.  Plus not having deal with BB clueless sales people ... priceless.

http://www.amazon.co...U/dp/B01CKGI0TO Fire Emblem Wii U is up on Amazon as of today.

 

Not sure how much of a big print this will get or if we get a special edition, but I know this is not dubbed at all and just sub titles. So might be a small production.

I think you might be right about that ... guessing Nintendo of America didn't realize exactly what it was going to be back when they announced it. Fortunately for us we're still getting it. Can't wait to play it this summer, looks really cool.

What little I watched when it came out in JP looked excellent.  I think they were hoping SMT4 would be a little more impactful and FEA was still the hotness.

 

Just looked at my discounted pre-order with BBY and boy I hope they update it like they did with FE Fates to the new listing because it currently leads to a non-existent item.

I'm a little let down by how the game doesn't resemble the Fire Emblem games at all (never got into the more niche anime games, though Persona 3 and 4 weren't bad), so I'm probably not going to order it, myself. That, and I saw this:

Well it's SMT x FE which means SMT is the lead game.  So it's going to be styled and have gameplay more in line with SMT.  How can this not get you going though?
