I think the biggest reason a Diablo guide is kind of silly is that, outside of having to document every god damn piece of loot in the game, how much strategy is there going to be for "click the big dude over and over"? I never thought of ARPGs as really needing a guide...or a FAQ....or anything.

Time to bring this thread back from the (nearly) dead:

Assassin's Creed III Hardcover CE Guide (10/30) - $24.25 (MSRP: $34.99)

Exclusive: The Collector’s Edition comes in a hardcover featuring unique cover art developed exclusively for this edition.

Exclusive: The Collector’s Edition offers 16 pages of art not available in the regular edition guide.

• From the very same team that brought you the highly acclaimed guides to Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood and Revelations.

100% complete: Covers all main missions, all side quests and all other optional challenges – carefully designed to avoid unnecessary story spoilers.

All secrets included: all collectible items, hidden destinations, unlockable bonuses, Achievements and Trophies.

• The user-friendly Walkthrough charts a rewarding path through the main story across all locations. Annotated visual solutions and clear text instructions present a streamlined path to 100% completion.

• Includes an extra-large map poster of the complete game area with collectibles.

• The Reference and Analysis chapter presents a comprehensive understanding of the game’s many new systems and features such as animal hunting and the goods-based economy.

• Includes an extensive story analysis with a breakdown of key characters, events and concepts across the entire Assassin’s Creed series to date.

• The dedicated Multiplayer section is packed with expert tips, hi-res maps and detailed tables.

There's no cover image yet. I think I'm going to wait for this to appear in my Quick Picks before preordering.

Thanks for the update, Ionotropic. I happened to notice that the ACIII CE guide's preorder price on Amazon has dropped another $3 or so to $21.61, and I edited the OP accordingly. :D If that pops up in my Goldbox one of these days, I just might have to preorder it. ;)

Pretty sad that the Hitman Absolution guide is being done by Prima and not someone more reputable like Piggyback. Piggyback would've made it absolutely a gem; I'm not convinced I want to pay $26 for a Prima guide.

As pointless as a physical guide for an MMO is, I must have the GW2 one to show my love for the franchise. I hope BB gets this so I can use that 50% coupon from the Unlocked package.

How does one add the small thumbnail images of the guides to the right-side of the OP? And also make it so it can be enlarged?

Problem is all the artwork is either not final or missing from Amazon, so there wasn't much reason to update it. I put up Pandaria though.

Lol, it would be awesome if guides could get patched instead of just getting errata.
