I won't be buying the game now, Cancelling my pre-order of the ps3 limited edition right now as we speak. :mad2:

haha you might as well be dead... well said, I feel the same way, though I do agree I prefer to see them in colour... shows a bit of quality though the pure awesomeness of the game makes up for every thing that anyone will ever find wrong with the game :D

I try not to read manuals @Gunmaster ( ) but it's a bad thing not to do something that is really important listed in the manual, like removing bolts from front load washers before you use them. I've had people on the phone asking why their new washing machine is dancing across the floor so I ask them if they removed the transit bolts, and they go.. 'What bolts?' http://i851.photobucket.com/albums/ab80/LlGHTS/amazed.gif Did I welcome you yet, bcuz I don't think I did.. Hey there ;).

Sometimes I wonder why games still have manuals, 99% of games have built in tutorials, some of them unskippable. :p

MonkeyBanana
21st Mar 2010, 12:08
Yea I know what you mean but tutorials most of the time just have a little bit more detailed information and you can look it up quickly, I see no reason not to include them..

I do agree that the manual should be in colour... I've owned nearly every console: the Commodore, Sega Saturn, NES, SNES and so on, and I loved collecting and reading the manuals. They used to be a good read, now they're just one page of controls, one page of how to turn on your console, and one page talking about warranty. But still, you gotta buy the game!!

You should read the manual of Assassins Creed II, its more of a story than most other new games

I do, manuals are a waste of paper, we waste too much of our natural resources as it is, we should try to cut back where we can.
Manuals should definitely go.

+ 1, never thought of that, by the way I do care about the environment I never leave my TV or computer on standby because that IS pointless if you could just switch it off completely

There's someone over on the GameFAQs board who cancelled his pre-order because the demo had a timer. Accusing the devs of ripping him off with such a cheap crappy demo.

Never read the manuals so black and white or colour dosn't mean much to me. Think it's better just to get straight in to the game and discovering controls as you go on.

Hate people saying they will not play cos of demo timers and things. You know they will still get the game anyways.

Manuals should definitely go.

Some manuals should definitely go but they're a crucial part of some games.

JC1 had an amazing maual, it was like a newspaper from San Esperito. I think it was the first tim I saw a manual written as though it was from inside it's game.

I think that if there is just going to be a list of controls, then there shouldn't be a manual at all (as you said about the environment), but if they take care over it, they should put it in colour as well, this makes it look so much nicer, but maybe manuals should be only put out with limited editions; this would even out costs and effects on environment, while those who care care get a nice bonus, and those who don't care don't
