Don't preorder it, don't reward their childish preorder bonus farming strategy.

Please don't pre-order this. Or anything else. Additionally I find it funny that a 4-day early release is their top end bonus for farming pre-orders. All that means is you'll be able to pirate it 4 days sooner (assuming it's not leaked to the scene sooner than that).

This seems to be the new thing telling people to not pre-order. If you are planning to buy it first day anyhow there is little harm except the money is in their account instead of yours, in most cases for the individual the lost interest is extremely minor so that is a poor argument. The idea of don't reward them before the game is out, well you are already panning to order it first day anyhow so probably not going to be swayed by any initial reviews. 4 days early access is 4 days sooner you get the game, I find this better then the offers that give you gear that you find better in 20min or something end game that breaks the first half of the game if you use it. sure if you are on the bridge wait and see a review but for most that pre-order a game we have seen enough screens/footage/past games to have a solid idea what we are getting into. I am not condoning pre-orders when there are 2 blurry screens available but a week or two beforehand there is a pretty good idea what is going on. And those that would consider pre-ordering it are not the ones that are looking to pirate it.

The pervasive attitude in AAA development (or marketing really I guess) is to push for as many pre-orders as possible so you have your return on investment locked down before the game has even been reviewed. This is bad because the rule these days is for a game to be released broken, and then possibly patched later, rather than to be released in working condition. The only way to send a message about not releasing broken games is to hold onto your money until it's known whether the game is broken\bullshit or not.

The Batman Arkham games were consistently good and the screen shots looked promising and then the release happened and the pc version was so bad they stopped selling it and gave everyone refunds. I'm not saying this happens every time by there is an increasing occurrence of games being broken day 1 which fucks over the people who pre-ordered the game and can't get a refund. You have no idea of the quality of the game right now. Not even through screen shots and pre planned action sequences. Watch dogs looked great at e3 and was reduced in quality upon retail. Assassins Creed Unity looked pretty damn good but is still fairly buggy. Battlefield 4 had serious multiplayer server issues upon release. How are any of these things worth having some fancy pre order gear or the game 4 days early. To me, this marketing ploy just means we could figure out how shit the game is 4 days early.

On Steam you can return any game, at any time, with out a reason. I love the Deus Ex series, especially the last one... all that being said, I don't pre-order any games. I'm fine being a few years behind the curve, playing New Vegas now and it's one of my favorite games (also I have hi-res textures, upgraded models, better particle fx, better sky etc).

Not exactly. The new/current return policy:

"...if the request is made within fourteen days of purchase, and the title has been played for less than two hours."

I somehow managed to forget this was being made. Feels like finding money in the couch.

I never truly forgot, I just pretended to do so in a faulty attempt to appear sane. :)

So do I get to be the resident piss-party and rain on everyones parade by saying there's a decent chance it won't live up to expectations? Because it won't. Games will never live up to the hype, because the hype is what's being sold these days.

You can definitely have games that live up to the hype. Witcher 3 is a great example, and Human Revolution was also amazing. Some games in the series were pretty bad, like the tablet one that was ported quite ridiculously but the series has a ton of potential. I'm really looking forward to this game, but I do have to admit that a huge part of my hype is the fact that a large part of the game is set in my hometown of Prague. Of course there is a chance it won't live up to expectations, that's why not pre ordering is recommended these days but I see nothing wrong with cautious optimism.

I'm not sure about the numbers but I don't think Deus Ex and Human Revolution fall into the same category, following-wise.

What I'm trying to say here is that one of these games is stringently moving forward with its own vision for design and producing for its core fanbase.

I find myself skeptical that Deus Ex will adopt a similar philosophy.

Human Revolution was also amazing.

Did we play the same game? I thought it had a strong start, sure, but that it petered out fairly quickly. I'm curious; what held it up for you all the way through the thing?

Fucking THANK YOU. Human Revolution was released half-finished, and Squeenix considered The Fall to be good enough for a PC release. Mankind Divided finds me apprehensive at best.

"Tier 3 – Extra In-Game Mission". You had to go and fuck it up again, didn't you Square Enix?

A 4-day early release is the top tier preorder bonus? Pfft-haha, I've got to hand it to them if offering something entirely intangible successfully entices more pre-orders.

After seeing the preorder I have decided it launches in July 2017 on a steam sale.

I guess I'll wait until February 30th, read reviews from actual players, and then perhaps buy it if it is good. (how one should buy all games btw)
