The Skryim guide is pretty big indeed, right up there with the Borderlands GOTY guide, Fallout 3 GOTY CE guide and a few of the other heavyweights in size of guide.


Skyrim is def the thickest CE guide i have, followed by Kingdoms of Amalur and Mass Effect 3.

That cover is pretty badass, but FPS guides are always worthless other than art.

HO. LEE. CRAP, at that Bioshock Infinite CE guide cover. :drool: While I don't usually buy FPS guides, games like Bioshock, where the collectibles are plenty, are exceptions to the rule for me.

Just a heads up that Amazon UK has some Kingdoms of Amalur CE guides left in stock. I just ordered one and it came out to about $35 USD including shipping to US. They seem to be disappearing quickly. Now I just have to get back to this game...

Damn it, first CE guide I purchase from Amazon and it arrived in a pretty bad state. It came in one of those hardbound shipping boxes that wrap around a book but the package didn't seem to receive any damage. So I guess this was shipped this way straight from Amazon. The Revengeance CE front is absolutely gorgeous by the way. Just a little ticked that the top of the guide's side has a big ass crease in the corner, I'm never anal about these things especially if I get it at a decent price but damn this one is just way too ugly and actually looks like something you would have put up on AWD as "Good".

On one hand I want to bitch about it to Amazon and get a pristine one, and another it just doesn't seem like something that would be -worth- bitching when I got it for $20.58. I'm probably letting all the fear mongering about A-Z bans get to me though, I've never asked for any compensations or complained to Amazon about any purchase. What would you guys suggest?

Mine had some corner bending. Small damages like these are almost impossible to avoid. I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you are planning on keeping it sealed and reselling it a few years from now when it is OOP. If you're planning on actually using it, just enjoy it!

Thanks for the confirmation, I'm usually spoiled by Amazon I guess, and since this is the first hardcover guide I buy online I just didn't know what to expect. The bend/crease was pretty bad when I received it though, luckily it was only the top. Bottom looks perfect (kinda wish it happened in the bottom instead of the top though lol). Heck I'm usually the sort of guy that will just say: "Ah well, Whatev, I still got it cheaper!"

I might just open it up, planned on keeping it sealed but I want to see that lithograph. :) Plus I still need to finish the VR Missions & S Rank Revengeance.

Looks like they're shipping out the Tomb Raider guides already, got confirmation on mine. Kinda cool that I'll have it in time for the game.

Absolutely love that new Bioshock Infinite guide cover, can't wait for that to arrive in a few weeks! I tend to use FPS guides only when I go searching for hidden goodies or get really stuck in a game. Sure I could wait for a FAQ to pop up but meh.

Kinda sad that there wasn't a guide for God of War Ascension announced or released (an Amazon search shows nothing except the Ultimate Guide for 3) but it's probably for the best as March already sucked my funds from my wallet.

Interested in if there will be one for Last of Us. I'm sure I'll need one for that game!

And I hope the Injustice Guide at least has the correct movelist for all the fighters this time. :roll:

Hehe, my MGR Guide came in flawless condition. thankfully. Its my favorite collector guide so far. The cover image is astoundingly nice. I wish it had more artwork on the inside though ala the Uncharted 3 Collectors.

My TR guide shipped, though my Camel^3 alert just emailed me that the price of the guide dropped again to $22.19. Anyone that had their guide ship should make sure to wait 2 days after release day and check for an email about a credit for the difference between ship price and release price.

Thankfully (?) my guide hasn't shipped yet, though I see the $22.19 price. I preordered it at $23.07 and my invoice shows an adjustment to $22.63, so hopefully it'll auto-adjust to $22.19 before it ships.

In other news, Bioshock guide comes with a bonus Songbird lithograph at Gamestop.
http://www.gamestop....i_031313-2.aspx
But is it worth the extra money versus buying the guide from Amazon?

Finally, Skyward Sword guide is on backorder at Amazon.
http://www.amazon.co.../dp/0307892042/
The reviews were bad, but some collectors might want it.

Honestly, I'd say no. If you like just the image, I believe first-run copies of the game will have it on the other side of the box art for reversible purposes.

I haven't finished SS yet - not even close actually. I was thinking of getting this guide, but, man those reviews are bad. Does anybody here own the guide, does it truly suck? Rife with inaccuracies?

So glad you posted this about Bioshock, I have been seeing these on Ebay and had no idea of its origin and was prepared to offer someone $40 for it ... now that I know it comes with the guide I won't be spending anywhere near that money. Thanks!!
