Last game I pre-ordered was Fallout: New Vegas. I think?

 

Point is, it was a long time ago.. but I'm tempted again.

I will buy it asap. It isn't Spacer's choice. It's my choice.

Haven't been so eager to play a game since Arcanum :luck:

I wan't to throw my money at you as well.
Shame it won't be kickstarted, as I would love nothing more than having a copy signed by Mr Cain and Mr Boyarsky, but oh well... Can't have it all I guess. I should be grateful to the fates for a game with both of them at helm again (no ill will towards other members of Obsidian, I was just missing that "special flavour" that I couldn't find anywhere else since the days of oryginal Fallouts and Arcanum).
Anyway, here's hoping there will be some sort of physical CE released, if only thanks to the Microsoft money flying around.

God, did learning about it make my day.

Because the company making the game is awesome and they deserve my money ASAP... That's why.

Because I pre-order all of their games. Don’t be a troll.

Feelies, usually.

 

New Vegas Collector's Edition had a deck of playing cards and some poker chips. I'm a sucker for playing cards.

 

I wonder if we'll be looking at any sort of physical collector's edition here.

So you are a sucker then. Also, that is trolling to you ?

Pre-ordering is anti-consumer, usually publishers have to push it by giving bonuses. They may have made sense with physical media that could have delays, run out, but that was a very long time ago. It's a bit disturbing for people to be asking for it. Wait for reviews, that should come out before release anyway. Remember, Obsidian is trying to sell you something.

I could feed my kids this upcoming week, but their sacrifice will not be in vain for this pre-order. Also I don't have kids, but if I did, I would still go with the pre-order.

I’m happy to support developers that I like, whether that’s with pre-orders, collectors editions, or crowd funding campaigns. As for reviews, I have this crazy preference for forming my own opinions, so...

I'm strongly against pre-ordering on principle.

 

I backed Pillars 1 and 2.

 

Pre-ordering The Outer Worlds would actually be a step down in my commitment towards Obsidian.

Yeah, but support them when they deliver something to you that you feel is worth it either from information leading up or reviews and feedback after release. Otherwise, why not mail them a cheque every month :p

They still owe me for the money I kicked in to PoE, got ripped off that bad :lol:

We finally find something to agree on it seems!

I, too, pre-order. It's never disappointed me yet, for I, too do mass research into the product I endorse in :)
