So I'm wondering what are the kind of games that most of the Giant Bomb userbase has pre-ordered at the moment. Are they AAA blockbuster titles? Super niche Japanese games? Or maybe that new MMO that looks REALLY REALLY good. (Like Guild Wars 2)
I have my own little list of games I currently have pre-ordered. They're all from Amazon because Amazon is pretty damn cool.
1. Lollipop Chainsaw. This game intrigued me when the first trailer came out, and since I like Suda51's work (only played No More Heroes to be honest) I wanted to put down the money for it. It also helps that Amazon had it for $45 temporarily. I really hope it doesn't disappoint.
2. The Last Story. This is actually the game I wanted the most out of all the Operation Rainfall games. Mistwalker really impressed me with Lost Odyssey and the reviews for this game sound good enough. Second reason I pre-ordered is the rumor going around that there will be a limited print run for this game, and I didn't want a repeat of the Radiant Historia fiasco so I put my money down for this. Can't wait!
3. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy. I am a sucker for this game. Combining rhythm game mechanics with Final Fantasy music is a genius idea, and I'm really surprised that Square came up with it. If looked at with a cynical eye, it would look like another milking of the Final Fantasy behemoth using nostalgia and brand name, but I can't get over the Ultros battle scene or that one and only good song from FFXIII being played with nice scenery in the background. So yeah... Also Amazon dropped it to $30 because WHY THE FUCK NOT.
4. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. Goddamn that title is a mouthful. I would have preferred 'Good People Die', but I imagine the ESRB or some fucktarded morailty group would go nuts over that. Anywho, this is the sequel to the mindfuckingly (made up word) awesome 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors adventure game for the DS. I am pre-ordering for two reasons. I'm hoping Amazon drops the price at some point, and I want to play it ASAP before some asshole spoils the game for me somehow.
So what about you, Giant Bomb?
