Ok. I bought the Mass Effect prequel novel
. Now this has hit my desk. The Gears of War limited edition
strategy guide. It is a beautiful package with the standard Gears strat guide but also has another book that contains the art of Gears of War.
As a fan of the game I'm well pleased with it. I would not have paid full price for it, but for under 10.00 it was a steal.
That said, I've never ordered a special limited edition/collector's edition of any game. I know that the bonus stuff will just collect dust in a drawer and I don't need the clutter. However, I've heard good stuff (though I can't confirm as I've not seen it anywhere) that the Bioshock CE is supposed to be neat.
Anyway, when where and why do you or don't you buy the peripheral stuff as mentioned above?
