I am a new member of this union and I would thank the user that invited me to join this group but unfortunately I can't remember their user name. anyway I am a fan of the sonic series and am glad to be a part of this group.
I know many will disagree, but one way to save money and avoid an insane backlog is by watching spoiler vids of walkthroughs and let's play vids. Doesn't have to be the entire game. Just the 1st 10 or 20 minutes. By then, you'll know if the game is worth immediate purchase or not. If the game is good, minor spoilers do not ruin my experience since I only sw the 1st few minutes of gameplay. Spoiler vids have saved me a ton of money versus hype and reviews.
Thats a good idea because you get to preview the game and see what its like.
Same here I bought a lot of games like a month ago when eb/gamespot had a lot of good deals for wii and ds games, then I got playstation pluse and got some free games and bought some discount games. It takes me a while to finish a game somtimes because I can't get into it and don't feel like playing it.
