Bioshock 2

Been considering buying Bioshock 2 for awhile now. I had been planning on buying the collectors edition since Best Buy had it for 69.99, but I'm glad I kept putting it off. A couple weekends ago Amazon had a 1 day sale on the collectors edition, selling it for 39.99.

More after the jump.....

Removing the slip case for the box the collectors edition comes in reveals this butterfly painting made from hand prints.

Since the game takes place in 1968 the collectors edition comes with this vinyl 180g LP of the original Bioshock soundtrack.

It also comes with a pretty large art book. And the scrolls to the left are advertising posters like the ones you'll find around Rapture as you play the game. I haven't taken them out yet, but I believe they are supposed to have secret messages that show up under a black light.

The original soundtrack for Bioshock 2 is included, but unlike the Bioshock 1 soundtrack this one is on CD.

And of coarse it comes with the game. I really like the way they packaged this with everything nicely layered on top of each other.

And if your wondering why I included a picture of the empty box. It's because when I ordered Monster Hunter 3 Amazon crammed the game into a box that was not made for shipping something like MH3. I did complain about the packaging through their review options they present you with after ordering with them. And while I know this is just a coincidence, I thought it was kind of funny that the very next game they used a huge box with a bunch of airbags to ship it to me.

It's on the back burner for now. Need to finish Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake first.
