After all of the opinions, the delays and the drama surrounding the Ouya I finally received mine, rather than just do an unboxing or a review I thought I would keep a Journal of my experiences with this little console. So consider this an extended, multi-part review where I’ll dig into everything about the Ouya “experience” starting with the kickstarter, continuing with the unboxing and today, ending with the actual gaming experience.

Unboxed: Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition

February 9th, 2013 Michael Pica

I’ve never played any of the Dead Space games, though I own all 3. Not that I don’t plan to play them (eventually) but one of the hazards of being a collector is that you buy far more games than you have time to play. What I do know about Dead Space is that the first game received what is perhaps the most iconic and and one of the most sought-after editions of this generation, the “Ultra Limited Edition“. Low production numbers tend to be the best trait any collector could ask for and with only 1000 made the Ultra Limited Edition could have been nothing more than a regular game case with alternative art and made collectors still crave it. Thankfully it was not only rare but a really well put-together package, not what I would consider to be the best edition, but it would still be one of the better editions even if it wasn’t so limited.

Due to the desirability of the Ultra Limited Edition the Collector’s Edition for Dead Space 2 was considered somewhat of a let-down. Over production make them not much more valuable than the standard edition and the included bonus item (a replica plasma cutter) was actually a scale model and not the full-sized replica people were hoping for. It seems for Dead Space 3 EA is hoping to rectify this with the Dev Team Edition, limited to 5000 units across all platforms and all bundled up in what is arguably one of the highest quality packages for an edition this generation, we’ll see if the Dev Team Edition can live up to the legacy that is the Ultra Limited Edition.

CollectorsEdition.org Limited Edition T-Shirts

May 12th, 2012 Michael Pica

I’m going to be producing a one time run of CollectorsEdition.org t-shirts. These will come sealed with a numbered certificate. I will only be producing 50 of these shirts however we may increase that up to 100 depending on demand between now and April 20th. If you would like to buy one please post in the official t-shirt thread in the forum. Be sure to include whether you want a men’s or woman’s cut shirt, what size you would like, and if you have a number preference, what number you would like. There is no time frame or pricing yet as the planning is still very early, though it will likely be two or more months and expect the pricing to be slightly more than your typical t-shirt due to the special packaging that these will receive. I will post more details once I have them.

The design will be a metallic print on a black shirt, this may change depending on the capability of the printer.

CollectorsEdition.org Limited Edition T-Shirt

Where did this design come from?
Back in 2008 I commissioned a graphics designer acquaintance of mine to develop a new logo for the site, he came up with 3 concepts. The logo you see on the shirt above was one of them. I liked this better than the other logos although it didn’t work well with the layout and color style of the site. I decided that I would hold on to the design anyway and use it for a t-shirt some time later. As time went on the idea of making it a limited run grew in my mind. Here we area nearly 4 years later and now feels like the right time.
