Buying a strategy guide in 2012 seems crazy. CRAZY! In fact, I had almost forgotten that they still exist, but I'm feeling nostalgic now that Diablo has come out. Has anyone purchased the strategy guide? If so how is it, does it seem worth it?
Anyone Get The Strategy Guide?
Not that I should be surprised there is a strategy guide but I'm surprised there is a strategy guide. What possible information could be revealed that is hidden and valuable?
*scratches head* What do you mean? D3 is no less suitable for a strategy guide that get guides.
@Breadfan: I think the main audience that purchases them do so to have something neat to read in their off-time, or like me, for the sake of owning everything that is the beautiful Diablo III. Other than that, I think it's just beginner's into the gaming industry who feel it could benefit them.
Tons of games still get strategy guides - my local GAME (which is closed now, but when it was open) had a ton of strategy guides - and a lot of them were for games that I don't needed strategy guides. I remember seeing a Gears of War 2 strategy guide, a Modern Warfare 2 strategy guide and I think I even saw an Assassin's Creed 2 strategy guide.
None of those games really needed a strategy guide - and no I haven't got the strategy guide - the only strategy guide I own is for Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, and I only have it because it came for free with the game when I bought it (although it is a pretty sweet guide and I enjoyed reading it).
