Bioshock 2

I went over to pick up my copy of Bioshock 2 today. I had my receipt and such and the guy manning the register at my local Gamestop pulled out a PC copy of the game. I asked politely if it was the Limited Edition copy of the game. He said no, and so a search ensued. After 15 or so minutes , in which I was told they didn't have it or wait maybe they did, I stood around the store vacillating between terror and anger. Finally the guy brought out this box and hefted it onto the counter. I figured there must have been a bunch of copies they were missing since the box was so big.

Uh uh. The entire box was one game. Mine.

I can pick stuff up, but this thing is heavy! I knew I had ordered a limited edition of the game, but thought nothing more of it than the copies of Dragon age and Star Trek Online I've picked up in the last few months.

Yeah. It's ginormous. That's a regular sized box with the game in it on top of it. I couldn't wait to get home and see what was inside!

This edition, which will be limited to a single production run, will contain the game along with three posters featuring fictional advertisements from Rapture, the orchestral score from the game on CD, the orchestral score from the original BioShock on a vinyl 180g LP, and a hardbound, 164-page art book. It will all be packaged in a 13"x13" premium case with special art on both the slipcase and the box cover.

The hubby and I were both in awe of the thing. It's simply huge. Plus, we don't have a record player. I don't even think I know how to work one. While I find the Vinyl very cool, its kinda impractical until I can get someone to burn it to a CD for me. Still, it's pure geek factor alone makes it super awesome.

I would love to tell you all about the game itself, but my new power supply was delivered about 5 pm. Then I had to go get the game once the hubby got home, and have him install the power supply and then the new hard drive and now I am formatting the bloody thing.

All I want to do is go visit Rapture and kill a few things!

*sigh*

Game On!!!
