[RS] Boycott Against Battlefield 3 Is Underway - Page 12  

post #111 of 324
I guess the extra content for a different continent doesn't really bother me... fine for them I guess, as long as I can still kick butt lol. Exclusive stuff does suck because we don't get it, but eh... DAO -12, flash hider, "flachette" round, and T-88... counter with SAIGA -12 or Benelli M4, flash hider is meh, Flachette round, I'm sure all small arms can pierce walls even 223 ok now a shotgun can do it.. but last time i remembered rifled slug or sabot slug can do the same lol., the T-88, eh... m249 or etc is fine.

What I'm saying is, even without the extra stuff, I'll still enjoy the game a lot. Some people MUST have all exclusives to say they do, or all badges and etc. But I guess I should give some lee-way to guys that want to do that, and that's fine.

not my fault, or anyone elses fault, just your own for those mistakes.
So it's my fault where I was born and what country I live in? It's my fault that game companies are greedy bastards? Is it my fault for having good morals and not playing the leaked version of Crysis 2 after making my pre-order? Maybe you missed the bit where I said we have to pay for the game when we pre-order it.

If I don't like the game on release, Steam or any other digital service won't refund me. That's their policy. Is that my fault as well?

With a physical copy, you've already used your cd keys and dlc codes. Game is useless.

How about not pre-ordering the game, waiting for reviews and seeing what your friends think of it before buying it? That's not a viable option with this exclusive pre-order DLC crap they are trying to make us pony up for.

no one says you have to have your preorder fully payed before release date. $5 is all it takes to save your copy. wait til a few days after release and then you can decide what to do. walk in say, i want my $5 back.

Blindly assuming that something isn't a problem for you isn't a problem for someone else is ridiculous. Obviously there's people who feel this same, or this thread wouldn't be here in the first place. If you're too short sighting or ignorant to understand their reasoning then you shouldn't be commenting at all.

LOL. So much misery in this thread. Remember when you COULDN'T pre-order games? Remember when you COULD preorder games, but nothing else came extra? Remember all the games that charged extra for limited editions?

The way I see it, buy it or don't. Don't piss and moan about not being able to have pre-order perks because you didn't bother. If you buy a movie from best buy, and don't like it, they aren't going to refund you. You people are getting SO upset over something that's meant for ENTERTAINMENT.

Hell, I've paid full-price for several titles that didn't pan out well. The last one was Op Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. What a POS that was. But I didn't go back to bestbuy and cry to them "this game sucks, I want a refund." No, I sucked it up, deleted it off my drive and everything was well in the world again.

Well as you've said, pre-ordering is a risk, and the reward for taking that risk is the extra content. It's a simple yet understandably frustrating concept.

You still don't get it. Pre-ordering anywhere in my country requires you to pay the full amount there and then, plus your $5 fee for pre-ordering, not when the game ships. Same goes for steam, you pay for it now and get the game later.

sucks for you then.

perhaps you should move. or take the issue up with those stores that make you do that.

I stand by my opinion on the matter. Its a non issue, i am an adult and i can accept the consequences of my actions, which could be that i dont get the content if i dont preorder, or perhaps ill have to buy it later.

Wait wait wait.

I pre-ordered this about a month ago, do I still get everything listed? I'm confused.
