View Full Version : "Now or Later" Decision. Help?

11-11-2010, 06:58 PM
So I have a birthday on Nov. 15. If you do not know, this is ONE day before AC Games come out.

Which is awesome.

Anyway I have two options: Get AC Brotherhood when I receive money (if any) at the risk of having NO money at all for everyone else on Christmas; or I can wait till Christmas to get it, and keep my B-Day money to buy gifts for everyone else.

A Selfish VS Selfless situation here. I need help, it's like having a Demon and an Angel on my shoulders.

I'm gonna be an angel instead of a demon on your shoulder and say: Get it for yourself. People can buy their own stuff.

Do it. It's your birthday money, not theirs. Get the game. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif.

Rationalization to get that damn cherub off your shoulder:

As others have said, it's your birthday money. If you don't buy the game now, you'll spend the next month and a half wallowing in self-pity (you're only human afterall, and this *is* AC:B).

By the time x-mas rolls around, you'll resent all of those whose x-mas gifts made you wait. If I was your friend/family memeber, I'd rather not get a x-mas gift than have you resent me. Thus, it's better for everyone if you get the game asap.

Fortunately I only have 2 people to shop for and I can afford to get their gifts in December so ACB is an early Solstice gift for myself.

Just get it as a sort-of 'delayed birthday present'?

Spend your birthday money on yourself.

It's the point of having a birthday.

(And I should know devilish. I'm a vampire, after all)

Hm, but I am like doing things for other people.

If not buying for them, I COULD keep the money.

So I can SPEND my money on it, or save it and recieve AC:B for C-Mas for free basically.

11-12-2010, 05:05 AM
You can spend your money you haven't done anything for except being born on it, thus getting it free and on time, or you can more directly get it for free more than a month late.

I know which one I'd pick...

11-12-2010, 05:11 AM
I'd say you could wait till Christmas to get it, but as I don't give a damn about other people (I'm evil), buy the game now, it's your money so get it.

I'm not saying this because of the game itself, but because if you want to get it, get it, and forget about the others.

11-12-2010, 05:47 AM
Bu...pah....eh..... wait? You'd actually consider waiting untill christmas when you have the money now!?

....I think I need to sit down.

Buy it now, then sell narcotics to get money for Christmas presents

11-12-2010, 08:06 AM
Just buy the game asap, it aint gonna make you feel better if you wait untill x-mass http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'd buy it now, especially if you wanna avoid potential spoilers.

Or take them to forget about christmas and present [edit] and presents http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But still buy the game now, it's the right thing to do

11-12-2010, 09:17 AM
that's why i'm happy that i live in a family where noone else has to care about the other in terms of presents. GET THE GAME.
6 days 7 hours and 43 minutes 3 seconds. See i can't wait for 6 more days but you could manage till christmas? you would be heavily missing out.

11-12-2010, 09:47 AM
If it is expected of you to buy Christmas presents then you should but depending on how many people there are and how much money you recieve you could buy them something less expensive and use the left over to get the game. I have a friend who is waiting for Christmas to get the game.

11-12-2010, 09:52 AM
How about this:
You keep your birthday money for christmas and tell your parents/friends you'd really like to get ACB.

This way you have money to buy presents AND you get your game (after a while though, but I'd do that, for my good name http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

11-12-2010, 09:58 AM
Buy it now. If you don't you may end up spending the money on something else and then be jammed for getting ACB for yourself AND buying gifts for others.
Get it now, you still have a month to generate other monies.
