I have less than a week to preorder before $20 expires

#1 Posted by golguin (3940 posts) -

I got a $20 coupon thing from Best Buy that expires before the game comes out. If I'm going to get the game anyway I should preorder and knock some money off the price.

Everything I have seen about the game has me hyped. Has anyone heard anything that would make me not buy the game? I don't want to drop some money on the game only to find out it was merely okay. I gamefly games that are "simply okay" since I'm on a budget.

I don't know, man. The hands-on stuff from reviewers a few months back was really positive across the board.

You may as well if you are going to buy the game day 1 anyway and get $20 off. Though pre-ordering itself is a pretty stupid model alltogether, if you are gonna save money on it I could see why.

Bioshock Infinite is definitely the only game coming out anytime soon worth getting, so I'd say your choice is sound.

From what you know, do you think that the game is worth $40 assuming that you will spend 60 and get 20 back?

How do you feel about the other Shock games? For me, I know I had to preorder this. I think at very least, you'll get a game with an interesting setting.

When will game impressions start coming out for the game? When will reviewers start to play the game and post obscure tweets?

Dude, just do it. Stop fretting. If you're hyped then you're hyped.

@golguin: You got a coupon man, just do it. Normally I think pre-orders are wei stupid but if you're getting 1/3 of the price off you might as well do it. Chances are if not anything else the story will be pretty good.

Don't preorder. How many times has all the early buzz been positive about a game, only to have it be underwhelming? (Full disclosure: I expect that this game is going to be disappointing.)

@kerned: I have a feeling it will be just like the original Bioshock - a really fleshed out world with a great story and lackluster combat.

Yeah, go for it!

Infinite comes out in about a week now right? I just want to be sure and not get burned. Using $15 for gamefly is still less than $40 with my gift card/coupon thing.

If it's really good embargos should be lifted days before release right?
