    Some people also like to support the developers of the games by paying full price.

    Rarely pre-order even when I intend to buy day one unless it nets you decent (as opposed to DLC nonsense) 'free' extras for doing so as with Dark Souls.

    You not getting Gears 3?

    And how can you afford so many games?

    Because I work for a living and have low bill requirements, thus freeing up plenty of disposable income for my hobby of choice. And most of my purchases are in sales or through ebay, I only buy a handful of games on release each year.

    Might get Gears 3. I picked up the second one again yesterday for the multiplayer. I'll probably wait till 3 is cheaper though.

    Oh, I've got Dead Island on preorder as well.

    Oh, and Dark Souls.

    Deus Ex
    UC 3
    Batman AC.

    Thats about it, took Dark Souls off as im going to finish Demon's Souls first. Also i'll wait for Skyrim as all Bethesda games are usually broke on launch.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    I got an early order of Dead Island in at Shopto.net for just 31.85 and i get a free t-shirt and a DLC pack for free.

    That's cool, but will you actually ever find yourself wearing said shirt?

    He might pitch a tent with it. Those free shirts from Shopto are always designed with the morbidly obese in mind. I got one with my DR2 purchase last year and now I use it as a dishcloth.

    How much do Eurogamer pay an hour to spend all day posting self-important tripe on the forum? What's the pension plan like? Do you need to take the bus to work or do they cover the costs of the special taxis too?

    Give it a rest, he just answered a question.

    Only Deus Ex: HR at the moment.

    I'm waiting on knowing individual store extras for a few others.

    Regular edition? I've plumped for the Augmented edition, I like the extra bits but I don't see the need in shelling out another 20 quid for some stupid statue in the collector's edition.

    Gears of War 3
    Deus Ex

    Might add Battlefied 3 to that list. Will get everything eventually though (maybe for christmas, cod on release night for cheap deals). It's the first time so many games I've wanted are being released in such a small time frame.

    That plus I'd feel guilty as hell spending so much money so quickly. Can't complain for so many awesome games though. :D

    Deus Ex
    Saints Row 3
    Rage

    Also Skyrim and Forza 4 on the radar. Not sure what I'm doing there. I might follow motti's example and ask Santa for Forza 4. I'll probably trade some stuff in and buy Skyrim over the counter.

    Has anyone got the new issue of PC Gamer? They have a world-exclusive first review of Deus Ex.

    I got the the Augmented edition, it' only 35 on the PC. I love concept art books and the bits of the soundtrack I've heard on the trailers, mean I'm really wanting to listen to the whole soundtrack. Not fussed on that statue as well, so I'll leave the collectors edition


    I was looking at the Skyrim collectors edition and I want the art book, but the statue looks a bit cack, defintely not as cool as Oblivion's coin.

    Deus Ex (on PS3 at the moment, although I'm thinking of switching to PC - just dunno whether my PC will do it justice).
    And Bastion and From Dust on PC.

    Battlefield 3 is only game pre-ordered. I pretty much know I'll get hundreds of hours of gameplay out of it. Plus because I'lI be playing it for multiplayer then it's pretty much got to be a day one purchase. Others games like Skyrim, AC Revelations and Deus Ex I'll definately be playing, but no need to buy them day one, they can wait and hopefully drop in price while I'm waiting.

    Nothing, obviously. :-P

    The games I bought 2 years ago, I'll probably play them next year. Maybe ;-)

    Who's best for preorders these days? I've been slowly wearing Mrs Hermit down, and she might possibly be almost at the point of agreeing to have discussion about the possibility of giving me permission to pre order Skyrim.

    If she does, then I'll need it on release day, as I'll also book the day off work and make a long weekend of it.

    I'd say shopto.net is a good option. Not been using them for ages but they haven't let me down yet.

    Caved in and pre-ordered Batman:AC last night. Bf3 is done too.

    That should be it for this year, but i'll probably pick up mw3 if i see it at a reasonable price on release.

    If those three plus Gears 3 and Rage don't keep me busy over the cold winter weekends then nothing else will.

    I finished the Gears 3 single player and sold it for £30 cash at CEX - the MP just wasn't hooking me but I might pick it up cheap again in the future.

    I've got Deus Ex to play at the minute but I've only preordered Battlefield 3 and MW3.

    I'm also hyped for The Witcher 2 and Skyrim but will hold out for the inevitable price drops. Single player games hit £20 so quickly these days.

    I was thinking about them as well, at least I'd get 3 if out wasn't delivered...
    Their website is an abomination though.

    I never really pre-order games cos I worry that they might turn out pants. I always wait for reviews and opinions on forums like this before buying a game.

    Then again, I don't have as much time as I'd like to play games so I'm very careful I choose the absolute creme de la creme when I buy a game. I read all the reviews, watch videos, read comments..etc

    My next purchase will be Dark Souls, prob at the end of this month.
