[QUOTE="The_Last_Ride"][QUOTE="mitu123"][QUOTE="The_Last_Ride"]But it's the first one i have ever been able to afford at launch

Same for me, and what's shocking is that it's 2 consoles.

I could had gotten the 20GB PS3 at launch but I wouldn't had enough in the long run when it comes to games so I had to drop it, not to mention how terrible the PS3 launch was, heck Xbox 360's was way, way better.

i didn't plan on getting anything next gen at that point. I wanted a ps3, but 1200 which it did cost back when i wanted to buy it was just too much. So my brother bought the 360 

That was a great choice back then.:P

hell yeah... I don't know if i would be able to afford any games for it

pre ordering is kind of stupid to be honest, but i make the new gen an exceptionThe_Last_Ride
Not sure how its stupid, but I will say that I do prefer waiting to get the game or order it the day it comes out, feels good waiting for the anticipation! But then again, even if you pre-order you still won't get the game until the set date its coming to stores, so I'm not really seeing any difference.

Having enough money always appears to be a troubling issue for many people, especially in this day and age.

It is more wise to wait and see some reviews and gameplay 

#1455 Posted by Toph_Girl250 (47571 posts) -
I never pay attention to and rea reviews. :P If I get a game and like it, good! If I get a game and don't like it... well I just hope its something many others don't like as well. :P

you should read some reviews before you buy the game
#1457 Posted by TAMKFan (32718 posts) -
I rarely read over whole reviews of games before I buy them myself. But most games I buy are games I safely assume that I would like.

I still do research on them a bit, but I just don't really read through whole reviews of them.

I do usually. I tend to get them earliest a week after release. The only games i really got in the launch week this year is Tomb Raider. It's my GOTY and i don't regret it

It's not very often that I get games in the first week they come out.

i think it's wiser, besides you can get it cheaper and dlc when you buy it at a later point. So it's a win-win.

I actually just got a game on sale on PSN the other day, bundled with some DLC.

downloading Far Cry 3 from ps+
#1465 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

the console war is pretty close right now. thought the title of this thread is no longer accurate since the new xbox is outselling the other 2 consoles.

#1466 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69800 posts) -

how many here have a next gen system?

#1467 Edited by TAMKFan (32718 posts) -

I have a Wii U. I also have a 3DS, which technically counts. Also, wouldn't it be called "current gen" now that they are all out?

Yeah, but not everyone has come to terms with that yet

#1469 Posted by TAMKFan (32718 posts) -

So, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze comes out on the 21st. I plan to get that.

#1470 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

eh. im fine with the one I have for my retro handhelds. the new one doesn't seem too good to me.

#1471 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69800 posts) -

So Thief, Donkey Kong both bombed at gamespot

#1472 Edited by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

so they say.

#1473 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69800 posts) -

not compared to other sites though

#1474 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

the title of this thread is pretty outdated.

#1475 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69800 posts) -

Yeah, but i can't change it

#1476 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

time to message a mod I guess.

perhaps, but i wonder if we should even do it. Nobody really cares about it really

still think it should be done anyway. unless you are planning on just letting this place go, in which case, then we wouldn't need to change it.

then I suggest changing it just in case.

Sure, but we need a mod then

I don't know any, so if you know someone, send them a message.

i tried getting people from other unions here, didn't work out

I got Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze the day after it came out and overall, I enjoyed it more than Donkey Kong Country Returns. I liked Dixie as a secondary character.

#1487 Edited by The_Last_Ride (69800 posts) -

Woah, huge news with the Xbox One, no Kinect and no paywall and games for gold is now the same as PS+

#1488 Posted by TAMKFan (32718 posts) -

I got Mario Kart 8 on release day, and it's probably my favorite Mario Kart game yet.

I really want a Wii U just because of that game
