I enjoy purchasing strategy guides, but not for the reason you may think. When I enjoy a particular game or franchise, I want to immerse myself in all what that product and its universe has to offer. This week I purchased Limited/Collector’s (see expensive) editions of two recently released Triple-A titles, Gears of War 2 and Fallout 3.
Both guides look really slick and I am looking forward to their usefulness over the years. The first ears guide I used extensively for useful bits of info and as well as to confirm the last few COG tag locals. Also for Bethesda’s last massive RPG, Oblivion, I used its excellent guide for the little bits that helped make my experience just that little bit smoother.
Now for the most part I like to solve all my game situations on my own, but sometimes you need that little extra help.
