It’s been a while since I made an unboxing video, the previous ones being Bioshock 2 Special Edition and Mass Effect 2 Collector’s Edition. Now it’s time for LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector’s Edition. Check out the unboxing video and the photos below. Nothing really comes close to what was crammed into Bioshock’s box, but this one is alright. “Sackboy” feels decent in quality, other than the plastic zipper. The bookends look nice, but are slightly flimsy. Finally, 11 costumes for the game are included in the package, plus 5 PSN avatars. There is no special cover for the disc or case, just a voucher with the code for the avatars and in-game costumes.

Some Indie/Non-Mainstream Games To Check Out On PC

UPDATE: This list is ridiculously out of date, I have to add tons of other games to it…

I made a list of some interesting or lesser known games that deserve a look. All of them I’ve personally tried and are owned by me on Steam. There are obvious ones like Super Meat Boy, Shattered Horizon, or Braid, but hopefully you find some new ones you’ve never heard of. Check out my list on GiantBomb since the site has so many features tailored to managing and browsing a database or encyclopedia of games.

Bioshock 2 Special Edition

Just like the Mass Effect 2 post, I made an unboxing video. Now this is quite a special edition, coming with the original Bioshock music on an actual vinyl record! There’s also a music CD with the music of Bioshock 2. Then there are 3 posters of ‘advertisements’ from Rapture. Finally, a full sized, full length artbook! The game’s own case also differs from the regular edition by having a holographic cover. Color manual is good, hope the regular versions are the same. Everything is enclosed in a pretty nice and sturdy box, too. I pre-ordered from FutureShop since there was some 10%-off online only sale, almost canceling out the tax, plus the price was unusually low compared to everyone else (FS totaled $91, while everyone else STARTED at $90 or $100, even $110 for console versions). The shipping box also looks like it’s what Take2 directly sends to stores.

In addition to these photos, I made a video. The artbook and general packaging is a bit underwhelming, but that’s probably why the whole thing is only $10 more than the regular edition. A black and white manual is lame for any game, especially if it’s limited. Apparently I got the last one in the ‘district’ (whatever that is… Scarborough area?)¬†from FutureShop. Though if I waited, I could have snagged it for around $45 from Amazon soon after. Those dang fingerprints on dark ink…
