Yeah! So I SHOULD buy all those games! Thanks BioFanatic for setting me straight on this. Ive got a solid ‘game plan’ now.
Well “calves to the slaughter” sounds a bit extreme but paints the picture nicely. Id like to think its like “executives to a pricey steakhouse they will brag about the next day” … but I see your point and I’m adopting the same philosophy.
If I chose a few games I need on Day One, most of the others come down really cheap sometimes in a week or two while Im still playing the other games. Wait a little longer and I find myself picking up AC: Black Flag last night on Gamestop.com for $11.99, so I could play it before Unity.
This has got me thinking I should do this a lot more, rather than buying at full-price and letting the games depreciate without time to play them. I also picked up SimCity for $5.99 (gamestop.com) …
Im not condemning anyone for day one purchases, heck, I will be there on Day One for Destiny, and probably Far Cry 4, since its last version was one of my favorites in recent memory, but Im finding my buying habits aren’t lining up with my playing habits. I usually end up playing one or two games for a long time and the others sit until I have free time.
I need to fight the urge to buy buy buy!
Gives my wallet a little time to recuperate … wait a minute no it doesn’t! Between Oct 28 – Nov 18, my list includes Sunset Overdrive, AC: Unity, The Crew, Far Cry 4 and Little Big Planet 3? Geeesh.
Guess I need to figure out a game plan, I can’t possibly play all of these at the same time. Or can I? ;)
Ill check this one out, thanks for the recommendation @viper12
Sorry to hear about your cat, hang in there! =)
I had the same reaction to this as the dinner party in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
While watching this movie all I could think of was that they were telling the story from Akira, with some time travel thrown in as a plot device for the purpose of misdirection.
In our newest adventure you play Stephanie Sheppard, a procedural programmer working in Montreal on a series of new effects for an undisclosed project by a respected studio. You will see the protagonist struggle against millions (of lines of code) and make challenging decisions (regarding contrasting feedback from rival executives).
Will the power of 10 fingers, one keyboard and 6 weeks of rendering be enough to overcome the challenge of a lifetime?
… even if it does have its hilarious moments.
