    The CE certainly has much better box art. I still can’t quite believe that monstrosity they’ve picked for the normal version.

    I dunno, whilst the normal artwork is hardly amazing, it reminds me of the book covers from crappy 70′s sci novels.

    Love the use of quotation marks on
    -A “premium, tin case”

    So it’s neither premium nor tin then?

    Want so much only 3 month to go. What gamerscore do you guys have on this game? An annoying thing about the first is that you had to play it like 7 times to get the full 1k
