@justina: first off welcome to the site. Second you are necroing a thread with the last post before yours being almost 4 years old.

I'm passing on DS2 for now, the DLC/Season Pass is stil full price. So I'm just going to wait for Sins of the Scholar.

Same here. I think there will be a much better deal to be had later down the road with Sins.

Also I'm struggling with Black Flag for $10. I haven't finished an AC game since Assassin's Creed 2, but I hear that ACIV is the AC game that people who really aren't that into AC.

Jesus. Again with the necros? It's sad seeing all these old names one used to see regularly and think they're all back.

It happens because Giant Bomb's SEO is too good. Instead of complaining about it, maybe you can help us out by flagging the posts or sending a PM to all mods using the link found in the right hand column of the forums and we'll take care of it right away.

@korwin: Yeah, I remember that. It also annoys me when games have AA and AF settings at Medium, High, and Ultra...just tell me if it's 2x, 4x, 8x, or something else.

That is the dumbest thing...why, WHY tie multiple options together? Just separate them so people can turn off DoF without disabling other features.

Were there any non-AAA games that really stood out this year? (Kind of a silly question when I say it like that). This seems like a kind of year where there isn't a AAA game that really knocked everyone's socks off.

What is a "AAA" game? Where does one draw the line? This isn't even a term that Giant Bomb uses, and for good reason. It's completely arbitrary and everyone seems to have a different idea of what AAA actually means.

@mb: I'm saying I know how low games will go and I know how to tell, and I don't have to wait until the last day to be able to tell.

Wait...how can you tell for sure if a game is going to be a daily deal or not? Or be a part of a Community Choice?

@mb: Ya, I know the 75% method. I did it for years.

Last year maybe 1 game on my wish list ever went down to 75%. It was 100% pointless to wait.

How is waiting until the last day of the sale to potentially save more pointless if even one of your wish list games drops down to 75% off or more? You have lost nothing, saved money, and all it cost you was a little bit of patience.
