A blimp in GTA5?? Why not just buy Saints Row 4 if you are looking for less-realistic and more-fun style gameplay...

wfay said:   A blimp in GTA5?? Why not just buy Saints Row 4 if you are looking for less-realistic and more-fun style gameplay...I don't see a problem with this.

At least blimps are real things that you could reasonable expect to actually see flying around once in awhile.

I enjoyed the rest of the series, but everything about SR4 looks unbelievably stupid (fun? perhaps. unrealistic and dumb? absolutely.)

It looks to me like the folks at Volition couldn't decide what kind of game they wanted to make, so the crammed every other game type into a giant amorphous blob of shit.

There is a big difference between GTA5 adding somewhat realistic diversionary activities & SR4 introducing such completely unbelievable garbage as the president being an active gang banger, mech warrior suits, superhero powers, alien invasions, etc.


So as not to threadcrap by doing noting more than talking shit about SR4, I will comment on the deal.

This is the regular price for the special edition, so it's the $10 RZ credit that makes the deal. Tax for me would be ~$6, so I would get about $4 net benefit vs buying at Amazon w/o tax.

I'm usually not a fan of buying special or collectors edition games either, but this is one case where I do feel like the special edition is worth the extra money.

Since the Staff post above set a precedent of posting opinions:

I see a problem with any developer providing digital content as part of a pre-order or Collector's addition DLC bonus. When it's some inconsequential item like a pet or purely aesthetic item - then I'm OK. Here, I will feel like I am not getting the whole package since I am missing out on weapons, stunt plane trials, & ability boosts. Why should I have to pay extra to get content developed as part of the game's regular dev cycle? I can't see this any other way than a money-grab.

Personally, I think StarCraft 2 knew how to make a perfect collector's addition. The digital content was a pet for World of Warcraft that most people probably didn't care about and an avatar next to your name. The physical stuff made up for all that however. The point is that they didn't give the people who bought the collector's addition extra units or missions or anything else that would have seriously frustrated those who forked over $60 for the release version.

Anyway, to comment on the deal - I'm sure we will see other stores like GameStop do their own promotions to entice folks over. It's not worth it; I'v always pre-ordered my games off Amazon and got release day shipping.
