Pre-ordering sends the message that it's fine to send half finished projects to the public because they already bought it. So no

Just bought Xcom: Enemy Unknown.
I assume by the time I'm done with it (5 years) I'll get Xcom 2 at a bargain.

EU turned out just fine on release. If anything their second game should turn out even better.

I'll eat my ohayou folder if I turn out to be wrong.

Got the Digital Deluxe on GMG for 25% off.

Cheaper than just the game on Steam.

What's so bad about waiting until it's released?

I pre-ordered. I live in a digital ghetto but I could get the game at half the gouged price if I pre-ordered.

>Buy game day 1
>Get game beforehand on sale
I could wait until just before day 1, but I see no reason to. Reviews before full release are usually shit.

Chances of there being any gamebreaking bugs, or it being unplayable on launch, are laughably slim. It's not exactly a Kickstarter project.

>>322461553
>get game beforehand on sale

I wouldn't call 64,99€ "on sale". I would call it "Haha, thanks for the money idiots here have this half finished game with Day 1 DLC maybe next time fuckers".

Is it 100% certain it will happen? No.
Does it still keep happening? Yes.

And for fucks sake, if you plan to pre-order do it over one of these key-seller websites that sell the Digital Deluxe edition for 40 bucks.
>>
I don't preorder games I haven't played, I will probably buy it day 1 though.

>>322458521
>if you don't buy in advance you must wait months after

Yeah, I got it for $48 through GMG - which is €44. I'm fine with it at this price.

IF YOU PRE-ORDER YOU STILL HAVE TO PAY AN EXTRA $20 DOLLERS FOR DLC

YOU ARE THE CANCER KILLING VIDEOGAMES

HAVE MY MONEY FOR A GAME NO ONE HAS PLAYED OR RATED YET. GIVE ME THAT YUMMY DLC YUM YUM
>>
>>322462292
>Have to buy DLC
>Implying it's literally mandatory
No Anon, you are the cancer. Getting the game, and then not buying the DLC is the way to go. Shows them you support the base game, but not the garbage they tack on after.
>>
>>322462390
OF COURSE I WANT TO PAY EXTRA FOR THE FULL GAME. I'M ALREADY PAYING $60 BUCKS BUT THEY NEED THAT $20 CAUSE THEY'RE A POOR INDIE COMPANY LIKE EA

I SUPPOSE YOU PLAYED EU4 AND ROME2 ON LAUNCH AND DEFENDED THAT

This kind of autism is what's wrong with the industry. Too many fanboys, and even devs, think it's acceptable to act that way.
>>
>All these people screaming about pre-ordering
It is a bad idea in most cases, but they've shown us a lot of gameplay, and it basically looks like an improved version of EU. They've shown off so much gameplay, and given early builds of the game to 'e-celebs', and nothing was wrong with the footage shown. I can't imagine anything being in the game that would completely ruin it. If you liked EU and want more, I'd say its fine to pre-order

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwHPhQXavPA
>>
>>322462924
They also showed this for Rome2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvXCxGKo2iE

Lets not forget every E3 trailer
Alien Colonial marines
And the new Bamham that was broken and fucked on launch
And most AAA launches now
>Star citizen
It's quite easy to fake footage.

Judge a game after it's out

I pre-orded rome2 and everything looked perfect. Then we got boats flying over the land and random flag hold points in battlefields
>>
>>322463218
The devs are playing rome 2 in that example though, actual reviewers and 'journalists' have played xcom 2 and showed gameplay, with no problems. Look up some gameplay on youtube, its full of independent youtubers playing an early build that looks perfect, and they have no reason to lie for firaxis

So you're saying that if I kicked down their door and did a search I wouldn't find a snake-tits dakimakura or other bribery?
>>
>>322462924
It's more about guarding against hyporacy.
I don't pay for games I haven't played, no exceptions.
If I have to pay a little more or lose preorder content as a consequence then so be it.
>>
>>322463634
Yep. It would be way too risky/expensive to try and bribe that many people
>>
>>322463218
>And most AAA launches now
>Citation needed
You named some of the few games that actually had major issues for enough people at launch. Here, let me name some others that were quite fine (mechanically, as in playable and bug free):
>Borderlands: The Presequel
>Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void
>Tomb Raider
>Metal Gear Solid 5
>Dragonball Xenoverse
>Dark Souls 2
>Wolfenstein: The New Order
>Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
>Thief
That's just the 'AAA' releases too, and that's just off the top of my head. You're greatly exaggerating when you say it happens for 'most' AAA launches.

Disgusting

>>322463765
EA games generally
Ubisoft games generally
Bethesda games general generally

Some of these aren't necessarily glitchy just incredibly unbalanced or poor netcode or downgrades since the trailers

Fallout4
Star wars battlefront 3
Rainbow six seige
Just cause 3
Dark souls2
WATCH DOGS
Battlefield 4
Ride to hell
Sim city
Rome2

There's a lot more where that came from
