With so many games coming out next year, especially in the first 6 months, what have you pre-ordered and plan on pre-ordering?

My pre-orders:

  1. Bioshock Infinite - I have the Ultimate Songbird Edition pre-ordered. i know I'm crazy because it's basically $70 for the statue but it's so beautiful.
  2. God of War: Ascension - I have the collectors edition paid for already because it's only $80 and it comes with a bunch of things. Mostly digital but still, it's pretty cool stuff.
  3. The Last of Us - Saw them pre-order exclusives and just did it. I'm part of the problem.
  4. Grand Theft Auto V - Pre-ordered it for the poster and then they tell me the posters for this and God of War were ruined by a flooded toilet. fucktarts.

What I need to pre-order:

  1. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - I really want a collectors edition that would be like the God of War one above because I want a Sly Cooper statue but I doubt one will be made. :(
  2. Dead Space 3 - I was waiting for a collectors but I doubt it'll be good. Remember Dead Space 2's? Yupp. I'm not excited for one anymore.
  3. Beyond: Two Souls - Mainly waiting to see if it comes out next year.

So there's my list of games that I want collectors editions of so I can touch the statues. I mean in a weird way too.

Now answer the title!

You're gonna be poor if you keep buying those collector's editions.

@Bones8677: Well I'm a jobless 20 year old college student who uses money from my financial aid refund check so I'm always poor. Also, I'll get another check next semester so I'm good.

I haven't pre-ordered anything, because I don't know what to get! There are too many excellent games coming out early next year. I'll probably reserve SimCity, probably my most anticipated game. After that, I don't know. I need Heart of the Swarm, The Last of Us,and Bioshock infinite. I'll probably get each one when I can.

Next year is going to be a good year for video games.

@awesomeusername: Glad to hear I'm not the only one who pre-ordered that ridiculous Bioshock package. That songbird statue though....uugggggggg he's goin right beside my Big Daddy and Halo: Reach diorama. Also the Handyman mini that you can use for the Bioshock board game that I'll inevitably buy. Ima paint him up real good.

Probably gonna pre-order Dead Space 3 but just the normal one. Also Heart of the Swarm. Aside from that, might sit on my cash till the next consoles come out.

Yup, classes are getting cut, teachers are getting fired, but make sure those kids get the money. THEY NEED IT

#8 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6408 posts) -

I'll likely preorder Beyond: Two Souls, and I'm currently debating whether or not to order SimCity. We'll see!

The first half of next year looks x100 better from a retail standpoint then the entirety of 2012. Which is ridiculous.

Have:

  • Wasteland 2
  • Reds

Will:

  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
  • Stasis
  • The Witness

Basically, I needs these games inside me as soon as possible o_O

#12 Posted by Demoskinos (15188 posts) -

None! Cause pre-ordering is for suckers!

#13 Posted by Peanut (955 posts) -

Nothing, because I'll walk into the Best Buy and grab it off the shelf.

Unless it's some crazy Atlus LE or something, then I'd have no choice.

#14 Posted by awesomeusername (4221 posts) -

@TheSouthernDandy: Seriously. When I first saw it, I was drooiling. Then I saw the price and cried and said "No, I can't!" Then I just pre-ordered it at GameStop. I am a fool. But that statue is gorgeous. Damn Irrational... It's going next to my AC3 Connor statue which is my only statue. But I will grow my collection.

I will never cut classes for video games. If I did, I would have done it for AC3. Which I didn't. I'm no fool! When it comes to school that is. but i dew need dat dough$$$~~~

#15 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

GTA V and Bioshock for me. Next year is going to be crazy, so many games and possibly new consoles.

Agreed. Going into 2012, I was only looking forward to Mass Effect 3 and The Witcher 2 on 360. I pre-ordered both of those games. I only pre-ordered one other game, XCOM. I usually pre-order many more games. I may beat that in the first few months of 2013. Going in to Christmas, the only game I really want is Far Cry 3, and I didn't care about that until recently. Not a great year for big releases, at least for me.

That being said, it was a fantastic year for indie titles. FTL and Hotline: Miami are absolutely amazing, and they're only the tip of the iceberg.

Well, most of these are going to end up digital purchases...

I want to feel those 1s and 0s :o

#19 Posted by sungahymn (1038 posts) -

I don't preorder stuff. If I had to pick one, I would probably preorder GTA V.

#20 Posted by Metric_Outlaw (1174 posts) -

I usually just wait for a review or a general reaction before I buy anything. That being said, I am going to preorder the new Luigi's Mansion.

#21 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2621 posts) -

I don't pre-order games, so none.

#22 Posted by Demoskinos (15188 posts) -

@awesomeusername: I just don't do it anymore. I almost never see the need. Unless I want a special edition and I think it bought exactly two LE's this year Halo 4 and Final Fantasy XIII-2.

#23 Posted by D_Bones (365 posts) -

I rarely do but my birthday is in January so i may just tell someone to pre order me Ni No Kuni it is one of the few games that seem like a sure bet to me.

That being said, it was a fantastic year for indie titles. FTL and Hotline: Miami are absolutely amazing, and they're only the tip of the iceberg.

I was only super pumped for Mass Effect 3 and Assassin's Creed 3. ME3 turned out fantastic but AC3. What a disappointment story wise. AC3 was the second game I ever pre-ordered, I got the collectors edition which was worth it. There's still a bunch of games I still need to play like Darksiders 2, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Sleepy Dawgs and maybe a couple others.

The only downloadable games I played were The Walking Dead which was absolutely amazing, Papo & Yo, CS: GO, The Unfinished Swan and Quantum Conundrum. I almost didn't play TWD but it came out on PS+ for free and I loved it. I'm hoping the devs for Hotline: Miami and Sony pull through on deal to port it to the Vita. I've been listening to that games soundtrack and it's amazing. That and the vibe it gives reminds me a lot of Drive, one of my favorite-est movies ever. I'm going to buy Sound Shapes when I beat all my Vita PS+ games because I have a 4GB memory stick and only 2 games fit at a time. I need to buy the Journey Collectors Edition and I'm hoping Mark of the Ninja and Dust come to PSN, at least on the Vita. They would look beautiful on it.

You're missing out then. :(

@Demoskinos: I just recently started pre-ordering because as I said, college money. It's what I paid AC3 CE with, even though I didn't pre-order it. I ordered through Amazon 2 days after it came out because Sandy fucked up Best Buy's AC3 pre-orders. Only other game I pre-ordered was Battlefield 3 which I regret. I found $100 on the floor and pre-ordered it with that so it's not a total loss. But I'm doing what you are. Pre-ordering collectors editions because they get sold out fast.

#26 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Just pre-ordered Bioshock Infinite's premium edition and am eagerly awaiting news of a Last of Us special edition.

#27 Edited by spankingaddict (2741 posts) -

Maybe Sly Cooper : Thieves in Time

I never pre order games or buy retail games anymore , but I'll be buying/pre-ordering DMC and Sly . Everyone buy SLY 4 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#28 Posted by Silver-Streak (1388 posts) -

I predominantly do not preorder unless Steam has some sort of crazy sale, or story content is "added" as a pre-order bonus.

#29 Posted by Redbullet685 (6090 posts) -

Haven't pre-ordered anything yet, but need to pre-order

  • Last of Us (announced today that pre-order comes with soundtrack, theme, and avatars which is a nice incentive)
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • GTA V

No. Pre-order the Ultimate Songbird Edition. Do something crazy! I really want a statue of the fungus monster from The Last of Us.

@spankingaddict: No one will buy Sly 4. :(

#31 Posted by Solh0und (1856 posts) -

Anarchy Reigns and maybe DmC so far. I'm considering going the PC route so I might not preorder much. It's not a total loss if I miss out on something that was anticipated the year before.

#32 Edited by Vinny_Says (5721 posts) -

No pre-orders, but there's a lot of stuff coming next year. Highlights include Bioshock, GRID 2, SC Blacklist, GTA 5, Dead Space 3 and Metro LL. And if things go right, Rainbox Six Patriots, Watch_Dogs and Prey 2.

#33 Posted by Funkydupe (3321 posts) -

I'm getting Rome 2. That's the only sure thing right now for me.

Guess I'll be pre-ordering all my games tomorrow.

#37 Posted by Zeik (2788 posts) -

The only one I currently have pre-ordered is Ni No Kuni, since I had to pre-order early to get the Wizard's Edition.

I'll most likely end up pre-ordering Etrian Odyssey 4 and The Last of Us sometime near their release, and possibly Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider.

#38 Posted by Zacagawea (1617 posts) -

I got the Injustice: Gods Among Us collectors edition preordered. That'll be fun.

#39 Posted by ValiantGrizzly (497 posts) -

Oh man, uh, hold on.

GTA V
Bioshock Infinite
Tomb Raider
Dead Space 3
The Last Of Us
South Park
Crysis 3

I'm sure more will follow as we get new announcements.

Play it on PC.it's not even close to being a system hog.

#42 Posted by awesomeusername (4221 posts) -

@Solh0und: It'll be too hard for me because KBM is just not my thing so I know I'll get destroyed. I'll just wait for that Vita port. If not, I'll Youtube it.

Also, you can use a controller in Hotline Miami, you may as well pick it up now while it's 50% off on Steam...

#44 Posted by MegaLombax (429 posts) -

Devil May Cry. Would've also pre-ordered The Last of Us, but my PS3 died after 3 years of service due to YLOD.

That too...

A PS3 controller?

#46 Posted by Nightriff (5367 posts) -

Only games I'm going to get on day 1 are GTA5 and The Last of Us. Everything else I can wait on and pick up when they are cheaper or steam sale (if they run on my PC of course).

I don't remember the name of the accessory but you can use it to plug in a PS3 controller to a PC

Also, since I was just alarmed about that deal...*runs off to get debit card*

@Solh0und:@BeachThunder: I can't just plug in a USB to my laptop and play it like that? I need to buy something? Well fuck. Also, will it work on this laptop?

@MegaLombax: Stupid YLOD. You need a new PS3 dude.
