Have you ever bought a collector's edition?
Every single WoW collector's through this one...finally broke my addiction when they announced Pandas.
because I thought I could resell it later for mad dosh
I don't normally go for CEs, but I did pre-order this.
Catherine, Skyward Sword and Bioshock 2. I found the Bioshock 2 CE for 20 bucks and figured why the hell not. The butterfly on it is really nice
Skyrim, Tales of Xillia, Epic Mickey, the Arland Trilogy, the Neptunia series, the Disgaea series, Agarest War, Killzone 3, Hellgate London, Drakengard 3, FF X/X-2 HD, Tera, and probably more.
I also have some animu and mango collector sets.
I bought the collectors edition for
Never again. Never.
I bought that, it made me quit console gaming I fucking hated reach, but loved the beta.
>that slow as fuck gameplay
>Killed the MLG Halo scene
>Worst campaign in the series by Bungie
This is also why I will never buy another Bungie product
Halo 1-3 are god tier though
I'll do you one better. I bought
pic related ;_;but the same day I also bought Metroid Prime Trilogy with tin case.I-I'm redeemed r-right anon?
Man, Halsey's jourrnal was the shit
>mfw in-universe shopping receipts with warthog advertisements on the back
This is the only game I've ever preordered. I don't regret it.
Several, and I have 2 pre-ordered now. One is Witcher 3 Collector's Edition for PC and the other is
Asscreed Unity Guillotine Edition also for PC.I'll also definitely buy the card decks and cloth map the xbonetards get with their Witcher on ebay.
The highest quality one I have is either inFamous 2 Hero Edition or the God of War Ultimate Trilogy Edition. The inFamous one has a high quality statue, and that bag (which is better quality than expected), and the God of War one has a seriously high quality (Pandora's) box.
God of War: http://youtu.be/_xQEZfQXFdg?t=1m50s
After I get the Witcher Collector's, it'll probably be my favorite one, that statue looks amazing.
>buy Skyrim CE
>see this image with the caption under it
>take a photograph
>type the caption word for word on it
Not it was horseshit. I turned it on for 15 minutes. I was greeted by a shit ton of bugs everywhere some npc had dialogue and others only when they felt like they needed to talk. Just completely inconsistent quality. I felt like i was playing a debug version of a shitty rpg.
Still the best PvP I've experienced in an MMO. Shame the game had shit all else to do.
That kid is such a cunt. I asked him why he keeps buying those shitty games and he never has a reason. He just buys every single one, even though he knows the games are shit.
He's also into piss, so I'm sure there's weirder aspects about him.
>they actually have some good idea and didnt use it... wtf is wrong with them?
I still miss it, and I'm still pissed EA ruined the game by forcing it to be released a year and a half ahead of schedule
I got collectors edition of AC3 for free, and Halo Reaches for same price as a normal copy, and was gifted the 360 Fallout New Vegas copy
the new vegas one is still sealed with a couple download codes that'll never be used, my favorite CE I own
well worth the 50 dollaroos
I bought Mortal Kombat 9 kollectors, Gears 3 Mega collectors edition with the controller. Driver San Francisco collectors, Dork Soles, MGR, Last Story/Pandoras Tower/Xenoblade super pack thing, Skyward sword with the controller, Elder Scrolls mega pack thing and a whole shit load more. Come at me
RIP Working Designs. Your over-priced/awful voice acting filled games, will always have a place in my home. That place being, my closet, collecting dust.
hell yea. my local gamestop only got 2 for borderlands 2, 1 for Xbox 1 for PlayStation. got ahold of the guy that had the one for Playstation and paid him 350 for it. that was just the most expensive one but I've been buying every collector's edition available since Mirror's Edge, that one was a pre order, came with a big yellow tote bag so not a collector's edition but awesome.
>what is sarcasm
Anon this >>258570591 looks like utter shit, even if it wasn't supposed to have been >>258569998, of course I don't mean it looks better. What's wrong with you?
This was the last one i bought.
Naruto Storm Revolution Samurai Edition will be the next.
>mfw best steelbook with best team
Can't fucking wait
Look how shiny they made this box art!! It is amazing!
I actually scanned both Morrowind and Skyrim artbooks and uploaded it for /v/ lorefags once
TES has really good concept arts always
Yeah that is from the artbook
I bought the Lord of the Rings Online CE, because it came with a lifetime subscription and I hated paying monthly for games back then. I played it long enough to have been worth it.
Pic related not so much.
>Comes into thread about collector editions
>says "i dont want extras, just the game pls.
You're like those sad fags that come into gamer food threads saying they only drink water and eat one stalk of celery, no salt.
The game went F2P after three and a half year man. Release in April 2007, F2P in September 2010.
Those are my fondest memories of any MMO, WoW never managed to really fill the void it left.
>Implying i bought it at release.
The game was utter shit. Garbage UI, garbage combat and constant rubberbanding. That is literally the cancer that kills online games, rubberbanding.
Want to hear something worse?
pre-orderedthe collectors edition of Aliens Colonial Marines.
Only when it has already come out and I know if the game is good but otherwise, never, ever again.
Went out and bought the Physical CE of WoD the minute after I saw that cinematic. I don't even give a fuck.
Also, I got the CE of Assassins Creed 2 that came in just the coolest fucking box in the world. My sis got me the Bioshock 2 CE, which had a fuckin gnarly artbook but not a whole lot else.
I have a bunch. I got the giant halo reach one with the statue and journal, i got fable 1, 2 and 3 ce, i got halo 3 in the metal tin, ni no kuni in the metal case, i got killer is dead, dark souls, metal gear, blaz blue, i got the 25th anniversary collection akuma box for street fighter, smt devil summoner 2 with the he ho police boy jack, smt 4, and many many more.
The one i regret the most is
mass effect 3.
Not pictured: Skyward Sword.
I don't buy collector's editions that often, but I'm happy with the ones that I have. Especially the EVE one. The exclusive board game alone made it all worth it.
And the pain I had to go through for the Mark of Mastery Edition...
>worked at Gamestop
>COD: MW2 and RE5 collector's editions been sitting in the back for ages
>get a message from on high that they've been converted to used
>mfw there's three of each back there
>have three tri-cel bags and three night-vision goggles now
>guy comes in, trades a shit ton of games for cash
>Halo Reach, Gears of War 3, Dead Space 2, all collector editions
>take them all
It was brand new which made it even more worth it, even though it did come with a dent on the box
It's weird considering Suda has a loyal fanbase that one his CE's would go for so low
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
Telltale's Jurassic Park game
Mario Kart 8
The most recent Alien vs Predator
Duke Nukem Forever
Not exactly the best track record.
Never paid for one, but my Dad buys me the Total War collectors edition every time it comes out, and has since I got him to buy me Medieval Total War when I was a kid (albeit I don't have collectors edition for that one, not sure there even is one).
I'm fuckin 24 now and he still came 'round to my house with a collectors edition of Rome II and sat and watched me play it for like 2 hours while talkin' 'bout shit.
Pretty sure it's the only video game genre he's OK with. I should show him Europa Universalis or something some time.
Empire Earth 3, Hellgate London. both games got me off preorders for ages, last ones i did was Payday 2 and Rome2.
I bought this bad boy, loved it so much and never regretted the purchase, the box has a special hidden compartment in it
>tfw this was all before I lost hope in the series after AC3
Duke Nukem Forever
For 5 bucks From a bargain bin ]3 months after release
This. It came with soundtrack and poster (pre order bonus at GAME.es)
Only the MK(2011)'s Kollector's edition. Basically because the bookends are fucking useful, and the artbook was nice. I'd never get a Collector's edition for a statue.
>Paying extra to have plastic crap clutter up your shelf
>Tfw a collector's edition has some nice stuff in them but is overpriced because it includes a tacky oversized statue that takes too much shelf space and isn't worth looking at.
Fuck you, I'd pay an extra $20 for a nice artbook, a map, and maybe some nice physical souvenirs from the game's lore, but I'm not paying $150 for a single video game because of a piece of shit statue.
How about collections and anthologies? Those are like collectors editions, but with more vidya.
Is pic related and the Mega Man X collection worth getting?
waifu bought me this for my bday when it came out
>Dat feel of getting a bj while she wears the shirt and boxers
Don't make fun of my curved dick
I bought all the other
Souls'collectors' editions too, in fact it's the only serious I have 'speshul' version of.
Even got mine ordered from Amazon. meaning I got a Steel Art card of
Wheel n' Deal Man
I framed the
mapafter ironing it out- To my defense it looks pretty good framed either way. The Faraam Knight Statue is very well made and detailed,
swords kinda suck though, got mine repainted to fit the statue, really love how it looks-- It's also what got me into collection figures in general.
Not that /toy/ tier hoarder mentality shit, I am only interested in select figuers from series I actually like- No action figures with Kung-fu grip.
The JoJo figures are cool though I am only spoilering because I am a faggot :^)
You know, generally just the Medicos line of stuff.
But I especially like the statues they make, such as pic related.
>tfw its 140$ on Amazon not including shipping and import taxes
PS3 Skyrim (I know)
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend
Zone of the Enders HD
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX
That's it. I normally don't go for special editions.
Does MGS Legacy Collection count?
Kind of feels like it.
Diablo III & RoS
Destiny GE one to keep second to shekel after release
I fear that destiny GE will fall in price after release because many fedora mofos will attempt to shekel their copy
Final Fantasy XIV/a real reborn, PS3
Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi, 3DS
Etrian Odyssey Untold; The Millennium Girl, 3DS
I don't really count them as anything CE anyway, the boxes aren't big enough.
I never even knew a Dark Souls CE existed, but I think I'm way too late to find it irl.
Kinda sucks because I thought the figure was cool as fuck when I found out about it.
>Fallout New Vegas
>Assassin's Creed 3
>Modern Warfare 2
Only one that was somewhat worth it was New Vegas since it came with playing cards and a few poker chips. Now the most I'll go for is limited edition
Why wouldnt they have one?
I dont get why they expect it to sell at that price.
I would rather not talk about it. First and last collectors edition I'll ever buy.
Yeah, I think I'll be OK with my 360 one, since I never plan on unwrapping the game.
When I do CEs usually I get funny looks when I ask for a PC version if it comes on all platforms.
Last one I got was the Dark Souls PS3 Collector's Edition. Soundtrack, mini-artbook, steel case so pretty decent.
After that it's mostly just those boring 'Collector's Editions' that are pretty much just the game in the same bog standard case only with exclusive DLC. Like the Metro: Last Light edition that comes with the Ranger Pack
I almost picked up a cool HMV exclusive edition of Lost Planet 2 that came with the pictured slipcase cover but opted for a Gamestop version with the first DLC pack included
Buyer's remorse cos nobody had or wanted to play any of those fucking maps
Oh wait I just fucking remembered I got the Black Ops Hardened Edition. What a fucking waste of money, I traded in so much and saved for weeks to get that and it was just more of the same fancy steelbook + DLC bullshit
That and a medal. Who the fuck is gonna go around wearing a fake army medal anyway
I bought the Halo 3 Steelbook edition thing when it came out. And I have pic related, still sealed too.
I also pre-ordered the Danganronpa 2 LE. I think the game should be out in about two weeks or so.
Your pic reminded me of this beast of a thing from Resi 4. I remember my local HMV used to always have this on display years ago

>mfw I ask him how AC3 was and he just tells me to never talk about it again
Oh I thought it was the Fan edition with the posters and diorama
Also I just discovered this, so much want
Seriously? I sold mine for 50 bucks along with the fucking game 1 year and some months ago.
>Desmond needed three lifetimes of training and 4 games of buildup to fight a bunch of rent a cops with plastic batons
>the packaging and CE strategy guide were better than the game
get over here, bro
Have I gone backwards in time?
I could have sworn I saw this thread already.
Most games I purchase are collectors/limited editions. I find the only way I can truly experience joy is spending money on a limited edition version of a game that I may or may not ever play.
I have the Dead Space collector's edition that was limited to 1000 copies or something like that. Each had a piece of artwork hand-signed by the artist. I've also purchased every Blizzard CE since World of Warcraft and I don't even play the Starcraft games.
I bought this a long while back, huge Korean box version. Wonder if it's worth anything now?
I got the World in Conflict: Collector's Edition.
It came with a piece of the Berlin Wall, Modern Marvels DVD on the Berlin Wall, "Making Of" DVD, trial copy of game that I gave to a friend, and a decent box.
One of the last things I ever got at Gamestop; don't regret my purchase.
I didn't even want this collectors (or limited edition) of Ar Tonelico Qoga. I went to GS to pick up the game, and they said they only have the limited edition left.
I didn't feel like going to another GS, so I just shelled out an extra $20 for it. At least I got a lewd artbook.
>implying the statue looks as good IRL as on that promotional picture
>Rome 2 Collector's Edition
the onager is fucking trash too
I regret getting Halo Reachs Legendary Edition. The flaming helmet wasn't worthit and the statue would have been nice if Noble Team weren't a bunch of shitty walking cliches, like holy fuck, Foehammer, the unseen pilot in the first Halo has more personality than anyone in Noble Team.
But at least the journal was cool and did an okay job and filling in the plothole of Halsey meeting Spartan III's before Ghosts of Onyx (basically she has her suspicions that someone is making new Spartans but can't confirm it until in the book).
Thanks, man, you saved me $99.
Got one of these, though. Keep it on my desk at work for papers. It's a neat little trinket.
remote control shit is cool though
playing an FPS on a console, not so much
Ahh the beta. Where Swordbase was fun and Invasion wasn't terrible. That map with the circle in the middle was pretty fun too when everyone was a newb but it's got some pretty mean lines of sight that makes it brutal when everyone is familiar with it.
There were two versions. The first was only 80 bucks and has the bitching case and journal. The second is 150 and is the same as the first but with a stupid statue.
That said, as far as CE statues go, the Reach one is alright. The final product isn't drastically different from the promo images.
Yeah, Reach is what killed Halo for me.
Destiny looks like shit.
>tfw 1-3 and ODST arent ported to PC
>tfw even if theyw were, Reach and or 4 would be included
>tfw I am probably autistic enough to not buy a game, just for including either of those.
I want to pretend Halo ended with ODST.
>HD Collection Limited Edition
I fucking envy you, cock sucker.
I still recall how hard my 12yo dick was when I held it in my hands.
Halo 4 just had some scraps of paper and cardboard about the spartan 4's in the style of official documents or whatever. So cheap, so useless, so disappointing. Halseys journal was the best physical goodie with expanded lore from an important characters perspective (so much more interesting than art books and starter guides!) and that limited edition box was pretty solid too.
I donated 200$ to the HGH kickstarter and that gives you a ton of shit, does that count?
Also MGS Legacy collection counts right
And I have the FUCKING GAMESTOP edition of RE4, but it the soundtrack disk was missing
Ok /v/ what do you call me now that you know??
>make a unique fantasy throne with strong viking edge to it too
PFFFFT NAH FUCK THAT LETS MAKE THIS MYSTICAL LAND OF SKYRIM TO BE NOTHING BUT MUD HUTS AND GENERIC EUROPEAN ARCHITECTURE.
How? Nigga, they been sold out since the day of announcement.
So glad I secured mine.
It didn't really segue together. Everything had a different feel to it -- making money, interacting with people, buying stuff, the "menu", the combat.
Also the difficulty was lazy in that the harder things really only just took more time to kill. They still paced around and did fuck all.
There wasn't any difficulty settings either, so you really just grinded the first while away.
I have the Dark Souls pre-order edition. It was used, so it has the sticky residue from when you remove the tape strips on the bottom/top and I can't figure out how to remove it without damaging the paint.
All the neptunias from the nisa store with the bonus cards
I cant wait for Rebirth collectors
fuck my cat for breaking my metal gear rising lamp
also fuck bioware, ubisoft and gearbox even if they are all good statues
mfw I bought both the Gamecube and PS2 versions
Picked up one or two over the years.
fair few were free upgrades from people not picking up orders/knowing the right people
Most I paid for I bought for the art books
Maybe it's regional or something, but I got pic related
I have an OOT collectors edition. It didn't come with anything special except for a golden cartridge. Unfortunately, my mom trying to make space in the house threw out all of my N64 boxes along with the OOT box.
Maybe! No idea, I knew a ton of people with grey carts. I do know the box was made of plastic instead of cardboard on the collectors edition, and it clearly said "Collector's Edition" on the box.
I have this, going for HD premium package. Also got 2nd runner limited special edition. Probably going to get the ANUBIS premium package and the ZOE premium one.
Too bad i don't have any money at the moment
I'm a huge ZoE fan but i mostly do it for the Shinkawa art
I bought the Brotherhood Collector's Edition as well, but it was different from this one.
Mine was the doctor jack-in-the-box version that came with a little artbook. Fucking love it.
I really wanted Black Flag's CE, but now I can't find a decent price for it unless I want to go last-gen.
Not making the same mistake for Unity, though. Got that shit on lock.
I like to pretend AC3 doesn't exist.
