Infinite Sadness

Hahaha, holy shit.

Promised vs Delivered.

I almost pre-ordered for this (and the statues), because I’m a sucker for all things Marvel. Dodged a bullet there.

Wow, what a difference. And what a waste of money given you didn’t even got the shiny stones. Aren’t two of those actually the same color of blue? Man, what an asshole move.

WOW. At least the lil’ baskets of easter eggs at Dollar Store can let you REMOVE the eggs from the basket of ripped up green paper. This took extra effort to make something worse
than cheap, it’s like they wanted to insult you.

And I thought Halo Reach’s statue and not actually Tod Mcfarlin figures thing was bad.

I’ve been buying every collecter’s edition of Blizzard games since Wrath of the Lich King. I always feel like it’s worth it – really, I’m after those art books. They’re beautiful.

I even went so far as to head over to eBay to get the two WoW boxes I was missing (the first two, before I decided to buy all the CEs). Just the boxes, mind you – I didn’t spend stupid amounts of money getting sealed mint condition boxes with goodies. Just wanted to complete the set.

But for the most part, I totally agree that they’re worthless.

Of collectors editions I have bought, Blizzard ones are totally worth it, but also TERA online and FF14:ARR had pretty solid set on collectors box (art book ofc included), witcher enchanted edition also included reprint of novel game is based on

(and while game was medicore, duke nukem forever included mini bust of duke)

This is unfair – there are a lot of REALLY nice collector’s editions that still come out and are worth the money. Just off the top of my head; Any of the Blizzard Collector’s Editions, including Overwatch (hell, the Game + Music CD are worth the cost alone, much less the other goodies in their CE’s) Deus Ex (Both Revolution and Divided) Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Skyrim Fallout 4 Shadows of Valentia Breath of the Wild Etc. Hell, you’ve got some real nice DVD/Blu-Ray Collector’s too, like the Monster Musume set. Throwing all CEs off the cliff just because of… Read more »

Even the box changed; there’s no metal-like weathering or glossy surfaces. It’s like Capcom realized mid-way through production that it was too expensive to make and skimped on it.

It’s almost like the preview is in 4k with full render. The real thing is just a render on Windows 98.

I have that set, and was very disapointed with it. The case itself was a LOT less than it was advertised at for the preorders (although they did get the crap sued out of them for using a real breifcase design without permission of the manufacturer, so I gave them a pass on the design). The quality of the case was too flimsy for the price of the set, and the dvd sleeves for the movies are just cardboard, a design that is horrible about scratching discs.

heh. Anyone remember the ‘batman origins’ pre-release? that ‘awsome’ joker infront of a table with light up screens’ vs the.. well, broken POS we got?

Yes, I was one of the origins pre-orderers.. is there a support group for them 😀

I actually still like the statue – sure the screens aren’t as ‘cool’ as advertised but I dig the pose.

Now the Arkham Asylum batarang…that was a hunk of shit

That is shitty one is a cool looking box of gems. The other is a glowing box of Easter candy and not even good Easter candy. I hope fans do go after them and get their money back.

Most Collector’s Editions are okay – not “double the price” good, but they’re at least not worth bashing.

This, however . . . this is turtle shit.

No not even. This is fecal matter from a dying diseased cricket. Not even one of the crickets you make flour out of, a random garden variety cricket with no use but lizard feed. Just dying, starving diseased cricket fecal matter.

If that fecal matter and the turtle shit got married and had four kids, and then those kids got married and had kids with pigeon shit, that’s what this would be. Not even just one type of shit. Various pieces of feces mixed together, you can’t tell where the pigeon shit starts and where the turtle-cricket dung ends. It’s disgusting even by shit’s standards.

The problem is that the guy in charge of making this box waited too long after Easter, and both Amazon and Dollar Tree ran out of the translucent gem-cut eggs and had to substitute..

I’m being serious. There are bags of eggs that sell for about a buck for six, that look far better than these.

That’s what happens when you decide to wait for the after-Easter clearance sale, dude.

As for me, I’ve got cardboard, paint, styrofoam, LEDs, and black felt. When next Easter rolls around, I’m going to make my own set. It’ll look much better.

Only S.E I tend to spring for now are the Ubisoft ones – the statues in those are good quality and look great on my shelf (I have all the AC’s, WD 1 & 2 and FarCry 4)

But buying all those is more expensive than the eggs right?

The last really good collectors edition I got was for New Vegas. I also got the one for Fallout 4, but, the New Vegas one is still best, imho.

The last “collectors edition” I got was for Lunar 2 for PS1. And that wasn’t *really* a collectors edition; they just threw in a bunch of cool stuff in a box. I miss those days.

I’m so glad I only do pre-order when it offers stuff like maps and artbooks, never been burned on those so far. Just got Divinity Original 2, kickstarter edition with artbook, got a statue with it and I don’t recall that being part of the kickstarter ^^.

The only collector’s edition I got was for Soul Calibur IV. I actually got some pretty nice stuff, including a tournament bracket (with Sharpie), a Large T-shirt (which was meant to be the prize), a comic book, and one other thing, don’t recall what it was. Everything came with the game in a tin box.

They gave you the game without putting it in a case to separate it from the other stuff? How could they!
