Once Again Rise of Tomb Raider Is Releasing At A Bad Time [ For Me ]

Spread the Word!

Rise of The Tomb Raider is releasing this month for PC! I literally can’t wait to get my hands on this game because it looks really good, but… when I glanced at what was coming out around it I considered skipping it yet again. 

Why does this game keep popping up around other games that I really want? The Tomb Raider franchise is not one of my favorite franchises. I actually don’t like any of the older Tomb Raider games.

I liked the reboot enough to give it a  7 a few years ago and Rise of The Tomb Raider looks fantastic, but it’s releasing around the same time some other really good games do and I know I’m going to end up skipping it again.

Dragon’s Dogma, Darkest Dungeon, Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam, Resident Evil Zero, and Xcom 2 all release around the same time as Rise of The Tomb Raider.

I’m interested in all of the titles that I mentioned above, but Tomb Raider, and Xcom release way to close to each other and I know I won’t choose it over Xcom 2. I also really want Dragon’s Dogma, Darkest Dungeon, and Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam more then I want Tomb Raider and I can get them all for around the same price as Tomb Raider by itself.

Xcom 2 is a day one buy for me while Tomb Raider is looking like it’s going to be pushed back to March because there are some games I want to get in February like Fire Emblem: Fates, and Mighty Number 9. Will I ever get around to Rise of The Tomb Raider?

Should I just cave and buy the game? It depends on the lowest price I can find for it I guess. Right now Xcom 2 is the number 1 game on my list followed by Fire Emblem, and Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam.

Are you getting Rise of The Tomb Raider on PC?

    First world problems 🙂 Just buy the game you want to play. Tomb Raider will still be there to buy later on the year… probably at a discount price too.

      Yep :].

      I’ve decided that the most I’ll spend on Tomb Raider is $30 so I’m going to wait :].

    Square games go on sale frequently on Steam, so if there’s enough to keep you occupied, maybe just wait until the inevitable Summer Sale discount.

    I want Darkest Dungeons for Vita. Looks like a lot of fun.

      You’re right. Square games drop in price quickly. I’m sure I’ll be able to get Rise of The Tomb Raider for about $30 in two or three months.

      Darkest Dungeon looks really good. I played it a year ago at a friend’s house, but I didn’t want to buy an early access title so I waited :].
