Spring marks the return of Square Enix’s exclusive Surprise Box.
For a limited time starting today through till March 29th, players can pre-order Springs Surprise Box for $9.99 via the Square Enix online store.
I have picked up the surprise box a couple of times just for shits and grins. It wasn't worth it.
Wow, that last surprise box sounds pretty awful: "Square Enix’s last Surprise Box arrived in December and included Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Thief, Final Fantasy 13, Life is Strange Episode 1, and Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn."
How is that awful lol. FFXIII and XIV are incredible games, can't speak for the others though. Assuming XIV comes with its free month then 9.99 was definitely worth it.
For 9.99 that's not bad.
Temple of Osiris is essentially an indie game from a major dev.
Final Fantasy XIII i don't even think i need to explain.
Life is Strange Episode 1 is already free on Steam, and is only the first part of a 5 part episodic game. (You have to pay $20 to get the other 4 parts)
Final Fantasy XIV is a P2P game and an MMO. Even if the buyer is interested in MMO's, they are forced to pay a monthly fee to play it.
Thief is the only decent game in the list. The rest is literally a scam.
Well, considering most individuals wouldn't want more than one or two of those, and that many of them would be or have been available as part of a Humble Bundle, or will be on sale cheap on Steam. It's not really a great deal to pay $10 for a surprise box when pretty much anyone could get the few games they wanted from the bundle for the exact same price (or cheaper) fairly easily.
EDIT: Look at what Humble Bundle offered for $3 more . . . http://www.indiegamebundles...
Screw them and their denuvo. I still need to play Just Cause 3 and that's it.
Ff realm worth it alone
What games did those surprise box consist of?
Are they still trying to pawn off the 13-trilogy on people
