Or maybe because people who haven't played the game keep reporting bad information? As someone who owns the game and isn't bad at it that's the one I'm leaning towards.


Yes, overall time for me (subtracting breaks) was about 8 hours but the game's timer said 4. If I continued using and listening to codec conversations beyond the start of the first chapter it'd probably have been 10 hours. I also ran through a few areas I could have stealthed.

Zavvi charges in British pounds and this item had a shipping charge of 25 GBP. You sure you getting the right item?

Here's the breakdown of my order; euros
99.99 for item
.99 for delivery (shipping)

Just got shipping confirmation for my copy of the other steelbook from amazon.de :D

Will go nice with my LE that I got yesterday. Been keeping up on the thread and opened mine right away to make sure my lamp wasn't cracked or broken. Thankfully it wasn't :)

Any idea how you got it at .99 for delivery? Its 25 shipping and im also in California...the shipping charge killed the deal for me. Didn't it show you the 99+25 price during checkout and on your order confirmation email?

I wish I had good experiences with Zavvi like the rest of you. The only two times I ordered from them my items ended up looking like garbage because I think the cardboard they use in their boxes is a ply thinner that what most companies use in the U.S.

The box literally did not keep its shape similar to a trash bag.

Sounds like they didn't charge for shipping yet. With shipping to CA it would have cost me about $200. Let us know if a separate charge shows up.


Ahhhh, that would make more sense if that were the case.

I'll keep you (guys) posted.

Also, I just got my email for the Amazon Red Inferno armor bonus DLC.

wha... 155.05? did you use a code? im paying 191 because of shipping.....


No coupon code or anything, but what Japankneez said maybe the likely case.

Idk how I got shipping for .99
Maybe it's because it was my first order on Zavii or because I ordered the first day it was available.
I will post a screenshot when I get off work

LoL I just got my lamp in the mail too and it kinda smells?

Think its anything worth worrying about? I'm not sure if its bad enough that I'm going to have to air out my room like the other person, but I took a sniff up close and it made me a lil lightheaded.

However I do not notice it as much once I box it all back up.

I doubt it is anything to worry about. I don't see what it could have in there that could hurt you. Just let the room air out and eventually the smell will dissipate most likely.

Health effects of neon

Routes of exposure: The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.

Inhalation risk: On loss of containment this liquid evaporates very quickly causing supersaturation of the air with serious risk of suffocation when in confined areas.

Effects of exposure: Inhalation: Simple asphyxiant. Skin: On contact with liquid: frostbite. Eyes: On contact with liquid: frostbite.

Inhalation: This gas is inert and is classified as a simple asphyxiant. Inhalation in excessive concentrations can result in dizziness, nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, and death. Death may result from errors in judgment, confusion, or loss of consciousness which prevent self-rescue. At low oxygen concentrations, unconsciousness and death may occur in seconds without warning.

The effect of simple asphyxiant gases is proportional to the extent to which they diminish the amount (partial pressure) of oxygen in the air that is breathed. The oxygen may be diminished to 75% of it's normal percentage in air before appreciable symptoms develop. This in turn requires the presence of a simple asphyxiant in a concentration of 33% in the mixture of air and gas. When the simple asphyxiant reaches a concentration of 50%, marked symptoms can be produced. A concentration of 75% is fatal in a matter of minutes.

Symptoms: The first symptoms produced by a simple asphyxiant are rapid respirations and air hunger. Mental alertness is diminished and muscular coordination is impaired. Later judgment becomes faulty and all sensations are depressed. Emotional instability often results and fatigue occurs rapidly. As the asphyxia progresses, there may be nausea and vomiting, prostration and loss of consciousness, and finally convulsions, deep coma and death.

I'm a chemist and if it's Neon gas in the lamp it won't hurt you. It's a noble gas which are inert. You would only suffocate if the whole room was filled with Neon, which isn't going to happen in this case.

I didn't get my art book when I picked up my LE. I went after work and they had run out. I always get the preorder bonuses so I think they were just short on them. Guy even went through the cabinet and he still had 1 FE art book left.

Not sure if I should buy one on eBay now.

Don't spend $25 on the art book. Call up GameStop customer service. I called them up this afternoon and they're supposedly going to send me one.

Soundtrack is amazing, there wasn't one song that didn't hold up to the epicness. Really good game, I just completed it and although it IS shoter than Bayonetta (even with cutscenes included) cannot wait to replay it already. :D


That's great to hear, hopefully there still available when I get some money. I'm pretty sure I'm going to replay it I replayed the demo a couple of times and enjoyed.

My buddy got his US LE in yesterday but didn't open it up till today when I stopped by his house. His lamp seemed to be in perfect condition. I told him at least to test it out to see if there were any problems internally with the lamp but he didn't want to and just stuck it up on a high shelf behind a Dante's Inferno figure :/

In a way I regret canceling my order for the US LE, but I'm also happy that I did. I don't think the lamp is that great. If I can grab it cheaper down the road then that's great. If this really is limited and I can't grab one for a decent price down the road then I don't think I'll have missed out on much.

I'm a huge MGS fan and got the US CE... I LOVE IT. The Lamp is definitely an awesome collectible to have. I wish the steelbook was the size of a PS3 case though... It's the size of DVD/360 game cases. Otherwise, I'm completely satisfied. The CE strategy guide is pretty sweet too. Definitely worth $20!

does the hard cover guide include all the art + have the same content as the art book from gamestop?

Probably because both IGN and GT have reported it as a 3-6 hour game. So either everyone else is bad at game or they're lying.




Nice deductive skills, brah.

Except that everyone who is actually qualified to comment on the genre knows that the game is much longer, unless you want ignore most of its content in favor of a rigid definition of when a game "ends."

From the official site: • The Collector’s Edition guide is printed on highest-quality paper and bound in a hard cover. It is limited to just one print run and includes an exclusive, numbered lithograph by concept artist Yoji Shinkawa. A bonus 16-page cast gallery with commentaries from the development team highlights the creative processes behind each character. The Collector’s Edition guide will be available only at launch.

Also, you can go to the site to see a video of the guide: http://www.piggyback.com/en/

I don't have it in my hand yet so I can't answer your question really, but I would like to point out that Piggyback makes the best guides in the business. Besides a spot-on walkthrough, the way they layout their guides and the art they include in it, they really try to make their guides a work of art, something that wouldn't look out of place on a coffee table. It goes so much more beyond what you expect for a normal video game guide, but I really hope other companies take notice and raise the standards of their guides, because Prima and BradyGames are put to shame when compared to Piggyback

FuturePress > PiggyBack. Check out the Bayonetta or Vanquish guides. I have the MGR guide now and its not as technically detailed as a Futurepress guide would have been. Its still a great guide and if Futurepress couldn't do it then Piggyback would be my only other choice.
