One of my favourite pastimes is looking longingly at Collectors’ Editions of Games and Consoles. Some days, I may even buy them! And sometimes mistakes were made being suckered into buying pointless ones, like the ones that had stickers. I have no intention of ever actually using those things... Though I guess I could send some of you guys letters/cards, and stick Persona 4’s Chie on the envelopes. Wouldn’t that be fun? No? Just strange?

Don’t answer that.

Anyway, the last special bonus game related thingie I bought was the Majora Mask 3D game with the Skullkid. It’s not the best Skullkid statue but it looks good from afar and I have no regrets. Skullkids are notoriously difficult to find in the wild, what with their hiding in forests or moon living and all. Plus all that extra baggage of actually risking your life to save one, or learning to play the ocarina just so you could hang out. So much work.

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s):

  • Build your own collector’s edition of your favourite game! Say you loved Final Fantasy VII for example, and they offered such a thing. What’d be in the super duper special edition of the game? Artbooks? Black Materia and White Materia? A blonde wig? Some sexy cologne? Pharmacy coupon?
  • The least favourite Collector’s Edition of a Game/anime/tv show you’ve bought. Sometimes we buy things on hype or it could have been a little bit cooler. These things happen.
