Just got all my pre orders done and man it's stacking up. Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6, Dishonored, Assassians Creed 3, Halo 4, Devil May Cry, Dead Space 3 and Bioshock Infinite. Wow, at least I know I'm stacked for quite a while, we have a lot of good games to look forward to. What's on your guys' list?

#2 Posted by Athadam (692 posts) -

I'm planning to buy a lot of games too but in my opinion you shouldn't preorder half of those.

Decide which games you want to play and wait until Black Friday to buy them. Many of those games come out at around the same time - so while you're playing one, the others will still probably be in their shrink wrap. I would personally wait until a day when they're 10-20 bucks off and get them when I will actually play them.

Anyways, good list of games - my list is pretty similar :D

#3 Posted by Zaccheus (1794 posts) -

Yeah I agree with @Castermhief117: and hope that those are just figurative pre-orders, as in games you are looking forward to.

#4 Posted by CookieMonster (2417 posts) -

None. Their hasn't been a game in years which I've wanted to purchase day 1, or for full price. I'll probably pick up halo 4 at christmas, but out of the next six months worth of games, thats it.

#5 Posted by SSully (4191 posts) -

Yeah its never worth pre-ordering that many games, especially when quite a few of those will take a long time to play(borderlands, AC3, possibly Dishonored).

#6 Posted by The_Nubster (2148 posts) -

The only game that I'm going to be buying of those is Borderlands 2, and I haven't even gotten it pre-ordered. The days of games being out of stock are long gone.

#7 Posted by mordukai (7150 posts) -

Frankly None. Maybe Bioshock Infinite but that's about that. I have some interest in Dishonored but I'll wait for reviews.

#8 Posted by fuzzypumpkin (383 posts) -

Good list. Enjoy. I'm personally waiting for Dead Space 3 and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Titties

#9 Posted by MikkaQ (10293 posts) -

i payed 36 bucks for borderlands 2 and... I'm good! I can spend the rest of my money on retro gaming.

Same, the only game I'm seriously considering getting on release this fall is XCOM: Enemy Unknown, I do have Torchlight II preordered from months ago still too.

#11 Edited by crusader8463 (14422 posts) -

I got like 4-5 pre-orders at the moment, but the only reason I got most of them was because of a sale they were having at greenman gaming where I got each one for like $30-$35 each.

I also have X-Com: Enemy Unknown pre-ordered, but that's the only one that I payed full price for. All those other ones I got for like $30 each. Of the list though, X-Com is the one that I'm excited for the most and if I had to only play one game it would be that one. First time in years I have been genuinely excited to play a game.

#12 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

I rent, then buy if I think a game is worth it. There was a time when I bought a ton of games I barely knew about.

#13 Edited by beeftothetaco (425 posts) -

If I were you, I'd take RE 6 off that list and wait for the reviews. Something tells me that it's going to be a disappointment.

Edit: I'm probably going to get Bioshock. I'll be looking at X-Com: Enemy Unknown too.

#14 Posted by PillClinton (3291 posts) -

I typically only buy games day 1 when I really, really want to have context for the Bombcast discussion of said game, and be part of the "zeitgeist." I never pre-order--haven't in around 7 years probably.

#15 Posted by beepmachine (618 posts) -

The only game I would even consider preordering from that list is Bioshock Infinite. Even if it ends up sucking I'll be okay with it. They earned my trust with Bioshock so I'm willing to pre order it.

#16 Posted by falserelic (5437 posts) -

Hands Down the game I'm definitely getting this year is...

I have an urge to kill so smoothly again....

#17 Posted by Pezen (1604 posts) -

The only one I am thinking about is the collector's edition of ACIII. Continuing my AC-CE collection. Borderlands feel weird preordering since it's out next week. And there really isn't much else I'm looking forward to.

I miss those days, before I followed news. "Nice box art and blurb, think I'll go with this." Sure, I got burned a lot, since almost every game (PC especially) had awesome box art back then, but randomly finding a great game is a lost joy for me.

#19 Posted by Zleunamme (666 posts) -

Rent or hold out for reviews. I stopped buying new games the first week of release after they would go on sale the month after or a GOY editions is released. Buy only games or a franchise that you really interested in. I'm not saying that all those games are going to bad but if money is going to be an issue. Try limiting your selections. Check if any retailers like Amazon or Target have any special offers. A gift card or credit to buy other things not just pre-order bonuses.

#20 Posted by ExplodeMode (852 posts) -

I'd probably go $60 day one for.. GTA5 whenever that happens. I can't think of anything else right now.

Otherwise, I'm not pre-ordering anything. I like money.

#21 Posted by BonOrbitz (2193 posts) -

Dishonored and Bioshock Infinite.

Wanted to get Borderlands 2, but with recent medical bills, auto repair bills, and a backlog as big as Liam Neeson's cock, it's best that I just play all the great stuff I haven't gotten to yet.

#22 Edited by FoolishChaos (437 posts) -

Out of those games, I'll just be playing borderlands 2 day 1. But I'm buying 4 copies of it, so it kind of makes up for it.

Preordering lately is less about being able to actually get the game day one, and more about saving $10-20.

You can buy a PC version of borderlands 2 for $36 right now, if you so desired. Its probably not going to be that cheap until the steam winter sale. edit: AND you get $10 of dlc for free.

#23 Edited by CODA117 (30 posts) -

Medal of Honor: Warfighter and HALO4 s'all I'm eyeing up so far for this year....Next year tho, can't wait to get my hands on Aliens: Colonial Marines, Splinter Cell: Backlist and the new Tomb Raider reboot

#24 Posted by zeekthegeek (391 posts) -

I've had diminishing returns with all pre-orders. I don't need a collection of cheap statues and other shit I won't use and most games just don't sell out in my area anyway so there's no need to lock down a copy.

#25 Posted by Sploder (917 posts) -

Nothing because I am actually a broke dude.

#26 Edited by CptBedlam (4451 posts) -

Too many sequels. I'm particularly sick of Halo, COD and Resident Evil.

I wanted to get Borderlands 2 right away but the QL unsold me and the friends I was going to play with are unsure as well. Instead I'm gonna give my money to Firaxis for XCOM. I want to play something fresh!

#27 Posted by leebmx (2244 posts) -

I don't really understand why anyone would pre-order.

However, the games I am looking forward to are Dishonoured, X-Com, Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infintite, Borderlands2 and Hitman. Hopefully they will all be up to snuff, but its always good to wait for reviews. Apart from when GTA5 comes out. I would put money down now for that.

#28 Posted by BBQBram (2236 posts) -

Dishonored and Assassin's Creed 3 are all I know for sure I'll be getting. Maybe Resident Evil 6, and possibly a WiiU, but if Nintendo doesn't deliver a semi-exciting launch line-up it might finally be time to get a PS3 and catch up on those exclusives.

#29 Posted by Bobby_The_Great (1004 posts) -

Hitman, AC 3, NFS: Most Wanted, (maybe) XCOM, Halo 4. That's about it for me. Rest are rentals, Gamefly, or on the cheaps. 

#30 Posted by BigSteve1983 (71 posts) -

For me the main three games I want to get in the remainder of the year are:

Borderlands 2

Resident Evil 6 (Played the Dragons Dogma demo and enjoyed it)

Assassins Creed 3

The new hitman

And that's it really. Halo 4 can literally wait cause it will be just the same old shit really, MOH does nothing to excite me, COD can go and jump off a clift.

Next year is going to be a different kettle of fish, Dead Space 3, Aliens CM, the new Bioshock and fingers crossed Lord of shadows 2.

#31 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

I don't know if I should pre-order any game other than X COM , I just saw a video about that DLC -pre-order chapter for AC3 and it looked pretty dissapointed... you just go and get a sword, what a waste of the whole 2012 Mayan thing.

#32 Posted by nerdsbeware (223 posts) -

If you want to consider it a pre-order (which I guess you can) I ordered Borderlands 2 from Amazon to be shipped to the house so that, again, I can avoid going to a Best Buy or something after work. I get home, its there waiting on the 18th. As well as $10 in Amazon credit which is never a bad thing haha.

#33 Edited by PenguinDust (12522 posts) -

Interesting, but for me following Borderlands 2, I'm not planning on any other game besides Dishonored until 2013. I'd be up for a good Halo single player campaign, but until I know more about this non-Bungie Halo, I'm going to keep that one in "wait and see" bin.

#34 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

Yeah, there are a lot of great games coming out and great games I still need to play lol.

#35 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

I'm buying a $2500 PC and then a $4-5000 motorcycle on top of a ton of games. I'll be spending money as fast as I earn it!

#36 Posted by That1BlackGuy (217 posts) -

Thankfully there isn't a lot of stuff that interests me coming out. Off the top I'm" copping Halo 4, Hitman: Absolution and Assassin's Creed III with a maybe on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (I say this but know I'm" gonna end up getting it smh). So yeah other than that I can't think of anything else I got enough games I need to get to as it is during the Holidays.

#37 Posted by WolfHazard (471 posts) -

I didn't realize I was in such a minority for preordering, what I mean by that however is I added them to my amazon cart to get them day and date not so much go to GameStop and put down 5 bucks. Either way these are my games that I whittled down to what I want day 1, and my most anticipated games, especially Halo 4 as that's my FPS of choice, I get pumped for Halos like people get pumped for COD :p
And I think I'm going to have to take that advice for RE6, knowing about the leak there's a lot more info out there and a lot of it isn't as good as I'd like it to be. I don't know, I took it out of my cart, I'll probably rebox it first but everything else mentioned I'm super stoked for.

#38 Posted by WolfHazard (471 posts) -

On another note, would anyone be able to reccomend me Far Cry 3? I don't know much about the series. I think I messed around with the level editor in 2 once.

#39 Posted by Gerhabio (1977 posts) -

I rent most of my games, I simply don't have the money to buy that many.

Looks sweet man, but isn't Bioshock Infinite riding the delay train all the way to hell right now?

#41 Posted by WolfHazard (471 posts) -

@Phyrlord I believe Feburary 26th is what it was delayed to, I think originally it was supposed to come out in 2012, I could be wrong however. Also I can't figure out how to quote people on my phone.

#42 Posted by Jrinswand (1709 posts) -

Jeez, dude. I'm not one to tell people how to spend their money, but that's a lot of money on video games. The only games coming out this year that I'm really excited about are XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which I can probably wait a while to buy, and Dota 2, which is going to be F2P. That said, I did spend a shitload of money last month when I completely overhauled my PC, but I use that for more than just gaming.

#43 Posted by believer258 (11914 posts) -

I'm looking forward to several games this year but I am not planning on pre-ordering any of them unless I somehow get super-rich sometime soon. I'm trying to discipline myself to wait until the Steam sale, where I can get a whole lot of them at a much cheaper price than launch. Yes, I want Borderlands 2 and Dishonored and Dead Space 3 but I'm not buying them anytime soon.

Wait it off until after Christmas, then roll on the sales.

Did the titties come with any sort of preorder bonus?

#46 Posted by GameStoppin (4 posts) -

You and just about every gamer this holiday season. Just like every season before this one.

#47 Posted by WolfHazard (471 posts) -

Honestly each game fits in the budget for the month, even as a day 1 purchase and I may decide to wait for holiday sales on some of them. It's not cheap being a gamer but I do well enough to make my rent, get my games and them some. But I do work a lot, so now the issue will be time to play them all. Haha I don't really know anything about the X Com franchise so I have zero interest in enemy unknown and I don't play of games, but even if I did I think I'd still stay away from dota after what I heard about the curve.

Same thing with Revelations.

#49 Posted by TheHBK (5485 posts) -

Let's see. I just got the Witcher 2 for the xbox for 10 bucks. Thats a dent. Then Halo 4, AC3. Other than that, it will be a light gaming season. Looking forward to South Park next year though.

#50 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3846 posts) -

Tell me about it. Got rid of Gamefly too so it's going to be steep. I'm looking into the Best Buy game card deal because if you preorder a lot of the big games you get $20 in credit, which could be a good deal.
