Op Ed

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Dishonoredís Dishonourable Pre-Order Rat Trap. Thanks nin.
WHO IS THIS HELPING?

The shops. Thatís who. But the problem is, itís all sold as if itís of benefit to all of us. And it isnít. Itís a pain in our lives, when we just want to buy the complete, finished version of the game, so we can play it as the developers intended. Bloody well let us.

Do we know whether these bonuses can be earned ingame? I mean stuff like shattering windows quietly or fire resistance sound like the kinds of things you get when you level up/upgrade your character/skills etc. If that's the case, and the pre-orders just unlock them immediately, I don't think it's a big deal. I doubt the developers would go to the trouble of adding/balancing/testing abilities just for pre-orders that other customers wouldn't have access to. Not a fan of pre-order bonuses but I don't think this particular case is one to get all pissed off about. What about Battlefield 3 which came with a map pack if you pre-ordered, but cost 15$ extra on day 1 effectively making the price of the game 75$? That's the kind of shit people should be railing against.

And yea, it does seem like RPS complains a lot about everything these days.
