Unboxed: Rez Kanzentousui Set

February 13th, 2012 Michael Pica

I wrote this a few months back but never got around to publishing it for whatever reason, now is a as good a time as any though…

Those of you who know me personally know that the Sega Dreamcast is my favorite classic console, and that the PS2 is one of my least favorite consoles (due to it’s role in killing off my beloved Dreamcast). You might also know that most of my CEs are for the Xbox and Xbox 360 and I almost never buy anything outside of the NTSC region, especially not if the release isn’t in English. So how is it that one of my newest and most cherished acquisitions is a PS2 title from Japan? One word: “Rez”.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector’s Edition Details Leaked

January 9th, 2012 Michael Pica

Thank you to everyone who wrote in to tell us about the leaked Collector’s Edition of Aliens: Colonial Marines. French Gaming site Gamekyo broke the announcement.

Aliens Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Xbox 360

The graphic above clearly shows that the CE will come in a nice looking display box along with a statue of the iconic power loader along with some in-game content. It’s unclear which region the CE is slated for, though considering the game has already been released in North America (correction: it was scheduled for release in November but pushed back) and the leak occurred in France I would venture a guess that this will be at very least a UK release, possibly all of Europe. I would suspect we will get more details including pricing once it gets closer to the ambiguous “Spring 2012″ release date.

AvP Broken Face Huggers

February 18th, 2010 Michael Pica

It’s the Bioshock 1 Big Daddy situation all over again. Apparently quite a few facehuggers figurines included with the just released AvP arrived with their tails broken off. Thankfully Sega has been quick to initiate a replacement program.

This page is for AvP Hunter’s Pack customers in the North American region only.

It has come to our attention that some of the exclusive Facehugger models included in the Aliens Vs Predator Hunter Edition have suffered damage in transit to North American retail.

We apologize for any inconvenience and are happy to provide replacements for any customers who received damaged products. Please fill out the following information so we can confirm your purchase. We will then contact you via email with instructions on how to receive a replacement Facehugger collectable.

I picked up my copy yesterday but I haven’t yet had a chance to unbox it.

Anyone in the CEo community end up with a fragile face hugger?
