Was the 25th Anniversary Edition in Japan, not sure why they changed it to Silver Edition for the English versions. Cloth map. Three disc collection of music from the entire series. Full color "Adol's Travel Journal" with art, strategies and a manual rolled into one. And a compass with the game logo on it. Which, to my surprise, actually works. Image

Oh, did that hit today?
Had it preordered at Amazon, so I guess that should be coming in the mail soon. Looks like a good little set.

Saw this at Best Buy for only 20 bucks. And considering that it only came out a few months ago (if that, even) at a full $60, and looked pretty interesting when I first saw the box, I thought I'd take the leap.

And good god, this game has a ton of personality and charm. I've only really beaten the first level so far, but the presentation style is phenomenal, with everything set up as a play, with the backgrounds rotating and flipping into existence as if on a giant stage-changing machine. It's really cool. And even though it's generally pretty kid-friendly so far, it's also got a slightly twisted grimness to it as well, which I always love in fairy tale-styled stories.
Really, if you see this one for cheap, like it is at Best Buy now, everyone ought to try it. I haven't gotten far, but it's very enjoyable so far. Shocked that I'd heard virtually nothing about it before.

Target sale was a success. Too many people so I didn't check out what games they had in stock. Off to the eShop I go :D

I was surprised to see they had both XBO and PS4 in stock, seems like both Sony and Microsoft have learned from past mistakes and had plenty of systems for launch this time around. Was very temping to pick to one up when you see that many in one place lol

Ya actually I think MS and Sony planned new shipments to be purposefully available on Black Friday, Best Buy had some too. Those Foxcon workers must be pissing themselves after learning both systems sold over a million each. Now the real pressure is on to supply Christmas.

Well I just woke up and saw Amazon had a flash deal for Skyrim Legendary for $20, so I bought the PC version and bought this fancy 1000 page hard back guide for $35, I was so tempted to buy it yesterday, but hesitated, now im glad I did.

As much as I love my consoles/handhelds, I need more PC games, my PC has barely been touched since i built it last year. Only a few games I even want though.

Don't worry, those two seems to go on sale every other month. If not on Steam you can get them for cheap on GMG a lot of the times. I've been having fun with Shadownrun, its like a cross between Blade Runner, Snatcher and a turn based Company of Heroes.

ah cool no worries then. yeah it's great fun, has really been helping me with my cyberpunk fix though makes me even more impatient for cyberpunk 2077. though does it give you more freedom of choice as the game advances? so far all I've done is go from one objective to another without any real free roam

From what I've played its very linear in the story progression, no real exploring or anything. I wish there was though
