    Still no videos of the game but we already know the content of the collector edition...How unsurprising.

    I'm interested in that artwork book.

    They do have some pretty good artists AFAIK, though the concept art they've released so far is utter shite

    I'm not really interesting in any of that stuff, to be honest.

    But then again, I usually don't go for collector's editions.

    Don't kill me, Big Daddy!)

    Shit, I'm hungry enough to have a Fallout lunchbox at the moment.

    But really, where's the soundtrack? Every single collector's edition that could be called worthwhile had a decent soundtrack packaged in.

    While most of this stuff is superfluous the bobblehead and lunchbox does remind me of an oldschool gaming staple.
    Feelies, how I loved feelies!

    Looking For Mr. Dobo

    Looking For Mr. Dobo



    Game Stop pre order page.
    http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=71146
    As of 8:02 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time, this 4-11-08.
    Either Mr. Dobo has already played the game or Mr. Dobo has quite the larping imagination.
    April 2008, possible sources of FO3 availability: electronic game industry trade journalist, third party play tester, and / or on B-soft dev team.

    Any one of possibilities could be a possible legitimate contender for ''customer of Gams-Stop'',
    for any goods or servicing,
    not just the Game-Stop copy writer finishing the sales pitch-- masquerading as a civilian to kick off the gushing enthusiasm,
    the buzz,
    that is all too too too essential in any market-eering extravaganza.

    BN -- perhaps Mr. Dobo will favor the rest of the potential customers of Game-Stop with a player review,
    maybe tomorrow, since he appears to have been playing some sort of game.

    All points look out for Mr. Dobo!

    Even if this Mr. Dobo is tongue tied by a non disclosure agreement , he can attest, and certify that there is a game in the box, that he played the game to completion, and is familiar enough with the game strategies and mechanics to vouch for the replay value OR GAME-STOP WILL REFUND all returned copies at Mr. Dobo's expense.

    Truth has a
    responsibility, and I know that Mr. Dobo will do the right thing.

    All points look out for Mr. Dobo , honor the legend in his own mind.

    Eh.

    I dunno why Gamestop even allows "user previews", that's a ridiculous concept to begin with.

    Yea, I've got two Big Daddies in my office at work.

    Big Daddies are cool, and the artbook that came with is nice as well.

    The bobblehead is a little ugly and the lunchbox is a useless totchke but damnit, I don't think I can resist. Then again, at $20 over normal price I might come to my senses before October. Not quite as awesome as a big daddy for $10 over.

    Edit: Yeah, and I doubt Bethesda would be as good about it as Irrational was. Sending replacement big daddies out for free with the quite cool artbook, plus passing out various goodies on their forum (I gots me a syringe pen!). Have a hard time seeing Bethesda replacing bobbleheads if they spontaneously combust.

    Do you think it'd be ironic enough of me to fashion a crude bomb out of that lunchbox and use it to avenge the series?

    (They still have the lunchbox bomb in the game, right?)

    If you want the feds on NMA's ass for promoting terrorist activities, then sure, very ironic :P

    Also, the only thing I really have to say about this CE: still better than the press goodies they sent for Fallout: BoS.

    HOLY SHIT! That actually happened?!?! That's beyond insane. I would say it's so absurd it works, but... no. I'll just stop here.

    Lol, same here. Mine was a Real Ghostbusters lunchbox. =D Ah good times. I remeber seeing a few years ago a Road Warrior lunchbox at some hobby shop at the mall and I wished I'd had somthing like that sucker. Ah well.

    must . . . resist . . . gifts . . . are flawed . . .

    Seriously, a Fallout Lunchbox would rule. But knowing that it came from Bethesda . . . you'd probably get an Oblivion lunchbox, with a plastic gun inside . . .
