*starts calling libraries*

 :ganishka:

I feel really lucky :iva:

Well, I'm glad we're all on the same page, but that doesn't help me decide which Club Nintendo games I should claim!? I was leaning towards getting a major title I don't already have for value, like Wonderful 101, but now I'm leaning towards three of the classics; EarthBound (I plan to ebay my complete copy for boku bucks) & Super Metroid for sure, and then probably a classic Mario game or Zelda 3. If I didn't already have Mario 3D Land that would be the no brainer pick on there. Maybe I'll decide based on what the local library already has.

Three nintendo classic seems a better a deal to me instead of one major exclusivity that you can easily buy for a cheap price, sell it if you want or even rent it.
Honestly, Super Metroid is only available for WiiU and not for 3DS ?  :schierke: That's a strange business decision. I'd love to play it on the go.

Nintendo better get things right with a real ecosystem within the so called ''projet fusion''.

If anyone after reading all the terrible reviews is still interested in playing this, then don't get it now. Pretty simple. Get it when it costs $18.86.

For me these days, time is more valuable than money. If someone crafts a $60 6 hour long game that's not to be missed, I am not going to complain about it. That's clearly not what happened with The Order though, so it's not even worth arguing...

For the order I'm not sure I'd pick it up for 18.86.  ;) I'm in the opposite boat these days.  I have a lot of free time.  The issue from a consumer point of view could be seen many ways.  I bet I eat more fast food in a month than a new game costs, but I still can't justify it.  The new trend of short games with little content  (cough titanfall cough) or no campaign is more or less discouraging to me.  A short game is by no means a bad thing, just the price tag.  Take souls dlc.  10 bucks for 5 hrs of content (even if its dying on a boss multiple times) makes me scratch my head.  There are more and more games that come out that feel like full priced dlc.  This is why I can't support it.  There will always be the exception, but just like crappy movies, if we don't pay for it, they won't make them....cause that'll happen.  :serpico:

From years now, I have the opportunity to borrow or order (for free) the majority of games from the  Montreal national library. I'll only buy games i really want to own and/or if it's digital only.
So for me, consuming games is totally influence by that fact.

Agreed.Consumers have a choice not to buy at the retail price.There's plenty of ways to get a game at a cheaper price now or later.

I wouldn't say that length's irrelevant, particularly as it concerns the business side. Play time is uniquely relevent in gaming, but in almost all media time is used as a classifer (EP vs LP, feature length vs short film, novel vs short story), so selling one like it's another is definitely relevent, and if there's risk of it becoming a stupid (like a XOF) trend in the game industry, I'd rather not incentivize publishers to get more bang for THEIR buck and dissuade developers and artists from creating longform experiences. Or, to put it another way, don't let $10 an hour become the norm in gaming, it's already expensive enough as it is.

That's what i think. Irrelevant wasn't the correct word to convey my thoughts.

Absolutely. Ground Zeroes was a blast. But $14 was the right price for that game. $40 is just absurd.

When i got my PS4,  since i bought the MGS4 PS3 bundle, that was the first game i bought for 6.80$ on the PSN.

For that reason I really liked the minimal(ist =) experience of Ground Zeroes, but I got it for $14. $40, on the other hand, for what amounts to a tech demo or advertisement for MGS5? No thanks, motherfuckers. Just because we're bereft (of time) doesn't make us SAPS!

What's funny after my little rant is I'm in the exact same demographic. I don't have time for a 30 hour game, let alone 80 hours (I preordered GTAV and I'm absolutely dreading it!).

Currently playing Smash Bros Wii U and Wind Waker HD, and trying to decide which Club Nintendo reward games to claim. I have just short of 700 coins, so I can get three classics, two current eshop titles, or a major release like Game & Wario or The Wonderful 101.

Nicely done JUNMAX. The choice of track and those scenes fit really well. This is right up there for me along with the Griffith-Nomad AMV collaboration.
