Sucker For Guides

I kick myself everytime, I go to buy a game. Somehow I get suckered into buying the guide. Everytime I hate myself for doing it, I go ahead and do it again. Yeah I bout the Cataclysm guide, I bought the Warhammer Online Guide to when that came out, well the list goes on.

Why….

I’m a Bibliophile – I love books. I don’t know what it is, I just do. Maybe that’s why I play a mage. My dream is to have a room, that I use as a personal library, a study if you will.

Size Matters - Their usually pretty thick, and big…well you know I’m a size queen.

Scientia Potentia Est – Knowledge is Power in other words. I always think that there may, just may be a nugget of info in there that will be useful.

The Pretty Pictures - Yeah the Art in there is pretty cool.

Sucker for Discount - Oh so I get 20 percent off right now, off the money I shouldn’t be blowing on this book.

Yeah so everytime there’s a game I like, and they have a guide, it’s most likely I’ll be shelling out the dough for it, but then kicking myself later for it.  Oh well at least I got some toilet reading.

  1. Lol toilet reading.

    I usually read my feed reader when on ‘the throne’

  2. Heh, I’ve been playing Dragonquest IX on the DS while attending calls of nature :)

  3. I wouldn’t have blamed you about 6 or 7 years back, when I was a guide junkie myself. Now everything is available online and in so many shapes and forms, it just feels wrong to spend money on hardcover files.

  4. Ive been suckered everytime but this one. They offered them at the 12am realease thing at gamestop, but I told myself not this time. I even have the vanilla atlas, hardback…but it actually did help me find stuff before I knew what an addon was.
