Well, maybe not the *LAST* pre-ordered game, but when the thought flitted across my head as I plopped 5 bucks down for South Park: The Stick of Truth, I couldn’t immediately brush it away as being silly. Not only is gaming changing for the most part (I honestly suspect that this console generation is the penultimate console generation) but there are just fewer and fewer games anymore that make me practice my high-pitched squeals.
Stick of Truth, however, has me squealing. First off: Obsidian is doing it. So apart from a few bugs, the gameplay will be there. Second off: Matt and Trey are both (reportedly, anyway) involved with the game. So apart from the aforementioned bugs, the story should be there.
I am also worried: Obsidian is doing it. There may be, erm, *MORE* than a few bugs.
In any case, it looks like that will be the last game until maybe the next Dragon Age that will make me pre-order. And when Dragon Age demonstrates that, yes, Bioware is dead, dead, and gone forever… *THAT* will be The Last Pre-Ordered Game.
So… what are you playing?
