I've gotten ahold of a number of audio's over the years. Personally I have found them to be very hit and miss; there have been some stories that I thought I would love, but that ultimately ended up being far from the case.
Your right, some of the audio's are very expensive, between two and three times what most of their physical counterparts cost (or in the case of the Eisenhorn trilogy even more so.) So it really does come down to a matter of whether or not you want to commit to something like that. More than just the price though, you also have to keep in mind having these audio's gives specific voices to characters and they may contradict your own version. (This happened to me, listen to any audio of Corax. Thats the voice I thought Angron should have had, never the raven lord.)
Answering your question, nope I am no more inspired this month to buy audio's any more than I have been in the past. A slight price drop, and having a quick look through the site I really didn't see one or any deals, does not change the things I consider when it comes to audio's because it goes beyond price for me.
Now if something like the Eisenhorn audio's were bundled together at a decent price, then yeah that might sway me. But I'd still avoid space marine battle audio's (mostly because I find the majority of space marine battle stories to be bad.)
Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.
Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
