Would you pay full price for this?

#1 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

Is it worth the whole $60?

The reason I ask is because I'm in the UK, and Nuts and Bolts is £40 here - the standard full price for games. Even with all the sales going on at the moment, with most new releases reduced to around £20 to £30, Nuts and Bolts still remains the full £40. I just can't make myself pay that amount when I know I'm almost paying double what I should be. Nuts and Bolts looks too good to pass on though.

I payed full price for it being in the UK, and It was totally worth it. Brad said that it was $60 worth of game when asked that question on the bombcast.

Thanks. I have no idea why I didn't check Play.com, it's normally the place I go for buying games online.

Well, the question still stands.

Easily.

I totally would. Nevermind my Mumbo Jumbo avatar, that probably makes my opinion seem irrelevant. I've definitely found Nuts & Bolts to be one of the most enjoyable and creative games I've played all year.

Simple answer: Yes.

#13 Posted by Jimbo_N (1197 posts) -

I ended up paying around 550kr for it which is almost full price here. So I´d guess I have to say yes.

#14 Posted by clubsandwich (3795 posts) -

yeah totally.

#15 Posted by Optiow (1745 posts) -

Nah, I don't know what it is, so nah.

Yes
#17 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

If there had been an $80 collectors edition with some kind of stupid bonus, I would have bought it. Huge nostalgia for the old games, and the new one is absolutely worth it.

#18 Posted by Babble (1270 posts) -

Yes, without a doubt I would pay full price. The game is really fantastic.

#19 Posted by Jayge_ (10221 posts) -

Without a second thought.

#20 Posted by Kazona (3068 posts) -

It's that good huh? Hmmm, maybe I should give it a try after all.

#21 Posted by Godzilla_Sushi (1084 posts) -

Oh yeah! Kind of wish it would get some more attention but unfortunately.......

#22 Posted by Lieutenant (347 posts) -

No, It easily justified the 20$ I got it for but 60$ it is a bit tougher to chew

#23 Posted by TheGamerGeek (2498 posts) -

Nope, just wasn't into it that much.

#24 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

Not really, though I don't feel like I wasted my money as I got the original B&K for free and 500+ achievement points which are nice.

#25 Posted by jakob187 (21671 posts) -

Yes.

Twice.

Considering I won't even buy it for $40: no. Sure, I'm going to be the obvious buzz kill, but I thought the demo was terrible, in my opinion.

#27 Posted by dsplayer1010 (2227 posts) -

Seems worth it

No arguments here! The demo was fine to see what was going on there. The problem was spending so little time to see what was a really fun game. Reminds me of that Burnout Paradise demo....they're hard to demo. I don't even think the first 3-4 hours of that game are totally worth deciding if you like it or not. Takes a while before you unlock and see enough.

What good am I if I have to be the apologist for a demo anyway, right? :)

i definitely would have.

the DEMO was terrible, the GAME is awesome.

hey if you don't like games that take a old school feeling game with awesome puzzles, with full HD visuals, suit yourself, I will take this all day.

This game is amazing. I got it yesterday and absolutely love it.

#32 Posted by CoolDrMoney (1978 posts) -

Definitely, it's one of my favorite games this gen.

#33 Posted by bjorno (1416 posts) -

mos def

#34 Posted by Woffls (127 posts) -

hell, I paid full price for it in the UK....

#35 Posted by IncredibleBulk92 (936 posts) -

I'm from the UK, I'm glad I paid full price.  Hell I'm waiting with points on my account just in case Rare release some DLC for it

#36 Posted by Red (5995 posts) -

I dunno. I'm still at: "Would You Pay $40 for this?"

#37 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

Just like Burnout Paradise, I hated the demo and didn't pick it up until I found it new for half price and then found out I absolutely loved the game.
If I knew both of those would be as awesome as they turned out I'd pay full price, but alas for them.

Oh fuck yeah this game is a lot of fun, it really brings me back to when I was playing Banjo Kazooie on the N64 before I could bust a nut.

#39 Posted by FlipperDesert (2087 posts) -

I got it from Gamestation for £25 and it's totally worth more, it's a damn shame Microsoft didn't market the hell out of it.

#40 Posted by Crono (2669 posts) -

The game is awesome, def would have paid 60 for it.  The demo doesn't do this game any justice.  This is one of the best non-shooter experiences on 360; a great game for those who are tired of playing "FPS #X"
