March 26th, 2014 Ayiu

Over at the official Bethesda store, you can now pre-order the Panzerhund Edition of Wolfenstein: The New Order which is limited to 5,000 pieces.

The Panzerhund Edition comes in a vintage footlocker-style box (measuring approximately 20″ x 10.5″ x 8.5″) with a stamped number plate right above the antiqued clasp and includes the following:

  • Inside, you’ll find a classified folder affixed to the lid containing 11 classified documents (an assortment of maps, case files, and even an x-ray)
  • The bulk of the footlocker houses an 8″ articulated Panzerhund statue. Made of high quality vinyl material (PVC and ABS) the statue is hand painted, includes a base, and strikes a surprisingly menacing pose for a scaled-down replica
  • Inset in a velvet-lined tray is an exclusive Steelbook, and a set of 14 full-color weathered-looking postcards of the game’s alternate history, bound in a display book.
  • Lifting this tray reveals compartments housing a set of three high-quality, embroidered patches, and a box containing custom molded replica dog tags, looped and knotted on twine string.

The Edition costs $100 USD and does not include a copy of the game – pre-orders can be placed here

Update:
Bethesda has officially announced the Imperial Edition for The Elder Scrolls Online.

Original Story:
Bethesda has yet to officially announce a collector’s edition for The Elder Scrolls Online but a user on the Amazon video games forum spotted a very peculiar image attached to the Dishonored GOTY store listing. The image shows a collector’s edition called Imperial Edition for the highly anticipated MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online. This was obviously a mistake and the photos have now been taken down but the image appears real enough.

The image features the following content for the Imperial Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online:

  • Physical Content
    • Collector’s Edition Box
    • Steelbook Packaging
    • Molag Bal Statue – A collectible 12″ statue featuring Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement
    • Map of Tamriel – A printed map detailing alliance-controlled zones and the ultimate conquest: Cyrodiil
    • Emperor’s Guide to Tamriel – A 224-page illustrated guide annotated by the Imperial scholar, Flaccus Terentius
  • Digital Content

    • Play as an Imperial for any alliance – Appears to be the only way to play as an imperial
    • White Imperial Horse
    • Mudcrab vanity Pet
    • Rings of Mara

Kickstarter CE for Obduction (Spiritual Sucessor to Myst) has only 3 Days Left

November 13th, 2013 Michael Pica

Obduction Kickstarter Reward Chart

If you haven’t heard, Cyan Inc, the company responsible for the classic PC adventure game Myst, is currently running a Kickstarter for their new project “Obduction”. This new game is not a sequel to the classic point and click adventure but a spiritual successor.  Right now the game has only been announced as being exclusive to the PC (Windows and Mac) and only available via digital-download. However as a Kickstarter only reward at the $75 and up level  (or as a $50 add-on to any other level) a Special Boxed Edition will be made available for those of us (collectors) who appreciate our games boxed and on physical media.  There are also a lot of other exclusive goodies including art-books and signed prints at various other support levels if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

Obduction Kickstarter Add On Rewards

Currently there is only 3-days left to back this project, and Cyan is less than $30K from reaching their $1.1 Million goal. Should they meet their goal (and it seems likely that they will) then the game is scheduled for release mid to late 2015.

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.
