    For those of you with patience (or a huge backlog of gameswave) it probably won't be too long before EA access add Mass Effect Andromeda to the vault. Unless you want it to 'keep forever' of course.
    I completely forgot about the vault, thanks for reminding me!
    That'll save me a bit more money.

    Why pre-order a game if you don't intend to play it as soon as it is released?
    1. This is Mass Effect
    2. Didn't know they were going to screw it up.

    Stopped pre-ordering alot of games after the whole Mafia 3 situation, didn't think Mass Effect Andromeda was going to kill it off completely.

    I've also run into the situation of preordering something (AC Unity + Halo MCC) and not playing it for a few months while life got in the way or I tried to finish something else up before I started something new. I won't be making that mistake again. I have about 6 games still in the shrink wrap right now.

    But I bought the indie collection anyway. $20 for 9 games is a great deal. (I already own the Swindle)

    I would grab Saints Row if it wasn't for the fact that it's not on sale in Australia.

    Mass Effect is going down quick
    A sale isn't a permanent price cut.

    No but having it on sale every week makes it seem like. (I'm exagerrating)
    Case Closed so don't debate it.

    Most developers and publishers really want you to play their games.

    to be honest I enjoyed it a lot more that 2 & 3, yeah it has it's issues but I find a lot of the criticisms overblown

    Instant Indie Hits looks like a steal for under £20.
    I purchased this before but a LOT of the games have unobtainable achievements. Stealth Inc 2 is a great game though.
    One of the games has one unobtainable. Annoying, yes, but I'm not sure I'd define it as a 'LOT'.
    My error I did think a lot more of Curves games had unobtainables but it's only 2 games now: Nova-111 and Stealth Inc 2 has one now because nobody can access the community servers anymore.

    No, Stealth Inc 2 does not have an unobtainable

    It's a compulsion. I do it all the time. I pre-ordered the Limited Edition of Alan Wake over 7 years ago. When it was selected for the TA Playlist, it was still shrink-wrapped in my backlog:

    http://tinyurl.com/AlanWake-ShrinkWrapped

    Ironically, the digital version went on sale just before the April TA Playlist started. So, I got that for (IIRC) 4.99 USD--less than a tenth of what I paid for the version I pre-ordered, and that was the game I played. I still opened the shrink-wrapped because the LE included a book with Alan Wake stories and the exceptional soundtrack on CD.
