I'm looking forward to this.

It makes me laugh that this little game can add stuff in one year that FIFA takes two or more years. And imagine that you can create your own manager and give him glasses, unlike the pre-set avatars in FIFA.

So has anyone been able to get the discount to work for them when pre ordering?

That is kind of dumb that a pre order bonus expires weeks before its out.

To be fair, they did announce the deal and deadline a long time ago. You do still get access to the beta, which will probably be available on Friday.

Nice, I didn't care too much about the $2.49 off I would have gotten, it was more about getting the beta/early access.

So having just bought FM for the first time with FM 16 (and well after it was released, like 4 months ago)...is this game truly one to get every year? Or would it be smart to sit out every other year considering the amount of depth in each release?

I like some of the new features I'm seeing in FM 17 but I've got a few saves going that I wouldn't mind continuing throughout the year until FM 18.
 
# 18 ImTellinTim @ 10/17/16 06:55 PM
Well that's up to you. If you want to keep your saves going for awhile, wait til 17 goes on sale.
