I've just cancelled my SE pre-orders for Pandora's Tower, Risen 2 & The Witcher 2. No money. :|

Pre-ordered mine from the store, hopefully I might get the extra.

Might pop in tomorrow and ask.

Dammit they seem to have sold out!
I'm guessing that might shoot up in price at some point in the future.

Tempted by the Assassin's Creed III one since I have the ones for 2, Brotherhood and Revelations, but the budget might not stretch.

Generally have decided to stop getting special editions over the last few months since the quality of them isn't quite justifying the price. Still in for Diablo III, and will jump on whatever Konami does for Metal Gear Rising, but its a lot different from the high times of 2008-2010 where I picked up the LE/SE/CE by default.

Still a sucker for the hardcover strategy guides though.

Baldurs gate 2 collectors edition, its all there apart from the t-shirt. Ebay tells me last copy sold minus the t-shirt for £40 and the only copy listed at the moment is £125 so well chuffed for 50p.

Still waiting for my Ninja Gaiden 3 LE preorder to be sorted, 1st it was delivered over a week late by TNT and then the model had a broken sword - it really spoiled the whole experience for me. Also very bad service from the previously amazing shopto, anyway the game was couriered back to them so hopefully I'll have a replacement at some point. :( No limited editions on the horizon for me except Mushihimesama HD on the 360.

WANT. Pretty much a fan of every anime Shinbo's worked on, love his visual style. :)

Futari Limited Ed next, shmup-wise, if I can get it for a decent price. Still gutted Mushi HD is region-locked.

Tempted by the Bioshock collectors' edition with the Big Daddy figurine...can anybody tell me what the quality is like? Also, is there a PS3 version of the set available? I'm sure the game was released on the 360 and PC first wasn't it?
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

only the pc and xbox versions got the big daddy figurine edition the ps3 was relegated to simple card sleeve which is nice and shiny but not as good. i love the figure from the 360 set though, looks great altogether in the box.
