At QuakeCon last week Bethesda unveiled the collector’s edition for their upcoming The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it’s charging a pretty penny for all the goods bundled inside it. You could even say Skyrim’s collector’s edition is going to cast a spell on your wallet! You know, like one of those money draining spells? HA! Thank you, I’ll be here all night.
This special edition will run you $149.99, a price that I dare say is sky high! Fuck yeah, I’m on a roll! The game releases on November 11, or 11.11.11, so it’s as easy as humanly possible to remember when the game comes out. I mean, come on, if you cant’ remember six 1′s, than you’re probably me. Head past the break for the loot this thing will bring with it. READ MORE
It seemed like it was only yesterday when details of Arkham City’s collector’s edition starting making their rounds about the interwebs, and today we’ve got official confirmation and a snazzy pic. Arkham City’s collector’s edition will indeed carry a special statue, art booklet, and early access to the game’s DLC, but that’s actually not everything. Check it out below.
As you can see, the Kotobukiya produced statue is none other than the Caped Crusader himself, in one of his many brooding hero poses, and the aforementioned DLC includes the Lounge Challenge Map and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns skin. The animated content is a bonus DC Universe animated original movie titled Batman: Gotham Knight, and the soundtrack includes several original songs. The collector’s edition will also bring with it four collectible cards. So, for $99.99, is this worth your hard-earned cash or will you just be getting the game so you can use the leftover funds on the bunch of other incredible games coming out in the coming months?

This hasn’t been confirmed yet but if recent listings at GameStop and News via Best Buy are true then Arkham City’s collector’s edition sounds insanely cool. According to the retailers, the special edition will charge $99.99, and while that might sound a little steep it does come with some very cool things. Like most other collector’s editions this one will bring with it an art book, and it will also include exclusive early access to DLC, Gotham Knight animated content, and a premium statue produced by Kotobukiya.
That all sounds great but because I’ll take any opportunity to show off my nerd cred I’m most excited for the statue. I don’t know what it’ll look like but I can guarantee you that thing will be on my desk, dusted daily. Sadly, there aren’t any pictures so we can get a better idea of what this edition’s contents will look like but there’s a good chance that’ll reveal itself soon. READ MORE
I have two Dark Souls related things for you tonight. The first is a glimpse at the game’s Limited Edition, which as you can see below, includes an art book, snazzy case, behind the scenes featurettes, and a guide book. That last one might prove the most useful knowing how difficult the game is going to be (even more so than the very unforgiving Demon’s Souls). The second thing I have is a chance to get your name in the game’s credits.
To manage this you’ll have to show off your artistic capabilities and design up to three shields using the templates they provide on their Facebook contest page. While you’re there you should become a fan of the Dark Souls Facebook page and if you can get all this done by July 13th you’ll have a chance at getting immortalized in the credits. READ MORE
Dead Island looks pretty good. It has zombies and a bunch of ways to dispatch them, and the trailers we’ve seen for the game so far have been pretty great. It’s no surprise we’re getting a special edition, but there are a few reasons that make this one pretty great. First, it comes with the game’s first DLC, dubbed Bloodbath Arena, that sounds a lot like the Firefight/Horde/Survival Modes in recent games, where you and a few friends have to fight waves of enemies.
The special edition brings with it unique cover art and an exclusive blueprint for a weapon called the Ripper – a baseball bat with a buzz saw attached to it. Head past the break for more details on the special edition and the Bloodbath Arena DLC. READ MORE
Looks like the game will be getting two awesome special editions dubbed the Kollector’s (I see what you did there you clever beaver) and Tournament Editions. The former will house within it a figure of Sub-Zero and Scorpion and a snazzy art book. But if that’s just not enough to satiate your appetite for all things Mortal Kombat, the Tournament Edition comes with an arcade-style fight stick controller and opens up to reveal a storage area for the game’s case (perfect for showing it off to any of your equally nerdy friends).
Both editions will include codes that unlock the classic costumes and the Xbox 360 version will have some stylish avatar costumes as well. PS3 owners that get any edition of the game needn’t feel bad since you’ll have Kratos as a playable character, and that’s way better than any dumb ‘ole avatar costumes. READ MORE
