just wondering if you have any pre-order games on your list for this year like

i pre-order NINJA GAIDEN yesterday and i hope comes out good,because i hate spending $50 bucks on crappy games like BRUTE FORCE wich i bought before it got released. how about you?

Well, first of all, Brute Force isn't crappy. Then second one, don't have pre-ordered any.

I also don't believe Brute Force sucked...I just think it didn't live up to the expectations as being "the Halo killer"...of course it didn't...but, the game doesn't suck.

As for pre-orders, I haven't in the last 6 months. I pre-ordered Halo 2 about a year ago (it's paid in full, too :))

Pre ordered Unreal The Awakening. Picking it up today.

I preordered the Suffering since the game looks great and it comes with Midway Classics with the pre-order.

Will get Ninja Gaiden in the coming weeks. :p

02-11-2004, 10:51 AM
Half-Life 2
Halo 2
Ninja Gaiden

And by the way, Brute Force was easily one of the best Releases on Xbox in '03! I thought it rocked!

yeah brute force was a decent game... more run and gun than tactical tho... which was its biggest let down.

anyways... i dont preorder games either.. i wait for the price drops or for used games... yeah yeah i'm cheap like that.

i am just afraid games might turn out bad... but i know halo 2 is a safe bet.

i pre-ordered halo 2 back in november when all the rumors were floating around of a before christmas release (didnt believe them, but covering my back just in case :D)

I preordered Ninja Gaiden yesterday.

I dont really bother pre-ordering games, working in an independant games shop I just get them from the suppliers before day 1 anyway lol.

I have never pre-ordered any games. I almost preordered ESPN Basbeall 2K5, probably should have with that deal Yankeez hooked us up with.

I've started an envelope with $5 in it last week. Every two weeks (payday) I'll but another $5 in. By the time I've got $50 it it Halo 2 will be released and my wife won't have a fit about how many games I have! (Women....they just don't understand)

I don't like buying games ahead of time because 1. They might bomb, and 2. they might get delayed

02-12-2004, 05:20 PM
I preorder Halo 2 awhile back. I still think that I going to get it a month after it is released. Hopefully they odered enough copies to have all of their reserving customers satisfied.

I haven't preordered a game yet. I was going to preorder Unreal II, but thought, what the hell, I'll just reserve it once it's released since no one around here buys games when they first come out.

02-12-2004, 09:45 PM
I pre ordered bf:vietnam and halo 2 today:cheers:

halo 2 thats it

02-14-2004, 12:03 AM
i still don't see how people like BRUTE FORCE when it was a big let down game in the end,but that's just my opinion
NOTE:i only played brute force in normal mode for one day,because i returned to EBgames the next day.

Brute Force was all right, but needed to be first person. I've only preordered Halo 2 and The Suffering.

Ninja Scroll

Just got NINJA GAIDEN on pre-order (since last October :rolleyes: ). Just cause I got a killer deal for it (peep da link in siggy).

I will wait on Halo2 until it's official and someone throws in some free-beez!:p

Before Ninja Gaiden da last game I pre-ordered was Splinter Cell from gamestop.com and wat was dat? Over a year and some change ago!

I normally wait to peep da BestBuy, CC, Target, ect ads as they runs specials like 10 Gift Cards and shiii like dat.
I wait and stealth for my game for pimpin ass deals.
naw mean maaaaaaang?

btw, Brute Force does SUCK! :D

Scooped it foe $34.99 summer of last year. Played it foe 15 minutes and knew I waisted my cheese on a 3rd Person Fart!
