Special Editions

  • Black Ops 2 GOTY Edition

    Usually a game of the year edition ends up being something special for those players who've decided to wait a while to get their hands on a game. Take the Oblivion game-of-the-year for example; after releasing the game and bringing out a huge amount of DLC for the title, bundling it up into one easily playable package that was somewhat cheaper than buying it all separately was a great idea both for Bethesda and the players.

    However, in the case of Black Ops 2, it'd take a bit more than just DLC to make it special seeing as the only DLC at the moment is Revolution. But, as it turns out, all that is actually coming in the GOTY edition of Black Ops 2 is the game and the one DLC. What's more is the price is at $60. This seems a little odd when you can get your hand on the game for around $40, and then buy the $15 DLC pack separately, saving yourself a much needed 5 dollars.

    To make it more enticing, Activision could have added the season pass to the bundle, but without it, it seems like you might be better off doing a bargain hunt.

    The package is coming May 29th.

  • GTA V Special Editions Detailed

    Rockstar Games has recently given details on special editions for the new upcoming GTA V, and special edition games are now available for pre-order through various retailers.

    There will be a total of two different special edition versions of GTA V, one costing $80, whilst the other will cost $150.

    Any players who pre-order either of the special editions will receive access to the pre-order only Atomic Blim aircraft. The $80 Special Edition will come with a Steel-book case, a blueprint map of GTA V, a special agility boost that can regenerate Micheal, Franklin, and Trevor's agility bar 25% faster, more stunt plane missions dotted around the game world, bonus tattoos and outfits, and a Pistol .50, a Bullpup shotgun and a melee hammer.

    The Collector's Edition will include everything the Special Edition has, as well as a Rockstar themed Security Deposit Bag, a "New Era 9FIFTY" Snapback, custom playable characters for Grand Theft Auto Online, unique '30s Hotknife hotrod and CarbonRS Sports Bike, and the high-end Khamelion electric car for GTA Online.

    Everything will also be packaged in a collector's box.

    As you can guess, the $180 price tag certainly gets you a lot of items, both in game and out of game. Some items, like the special edition agility boost sound a bit stingy from Rockstar as it allows players to get an advantage over others by playing, but other than that, most items seem pretty harmless when it comes to online play, and shouldn't affect gameplay to the point where special edition owners gain a considerable advantage over standard edition players.
