Oh man, I'm sorely tempted to get that Starcraft guide just because.

Considering there's only one listing on Amazon for a Gears of War: Judgment guide and it has the CE cover image...do any of you think we could get it for $12.99, or would we end up with the standard guide?

You will end up with the standard paperback guide. But you could probably sell the included code for "exclusive weapon skin" for $10 on ebay, and essentially get the paperback guide for just a few bucks.

Was just gonna pop in to say the MG Rising guide had a cover update, I see I'm late!

It looks mediocre to me, not very typical for a metal gear guide, I prefer the more plain, "artsy" looking ones. Still in for 1 though!

Looks like Tomb Raider has its final cover art:

Also, it appears that the Bioshock Infinite CE guide will come with some physical item...though what exactly it is, I'm not sure:

A key of some sort?

I think Tomb Raider's is going to be a jade necklace or pendant. I remember seeing it on Facebook.

That key looks like the one seen in one of the trailers that Booker gives to Elizabeth to unlock the room she's been trapped in to start escaping.

Great price on the SC2 guide. I'd pick it up now if you want it because last one was 21-26 at amazon and it sold out everywhere before release and was intermittently available afterwards. Even hit $50-$55 at one point.

Yeah, I've never cared for guides since to me they just sit there looking pretty in a corner. But that MGR one looks very nice.. tempted to buy it.

I'm not sure if the necklace replica is exclusive to Gamestop or available everywhere. Their FB page only mentioned "preorder via Gamestop."

edit: The Amazon listing mentions having it as well, but no pics on their website.

I stopped by a Gamestop yesterday (Sunday) to pick up a game and noticed the CE guide for Dead Space 3 already on display with the other guides. It was shrink-wrapped, so I couldn't get a good look at the bonuses, but...uh...

It was pretty thin--thinner than I expected. If there's really 320 pages in there, color me impressed; it looked more like half of that to me. :\

I've been known to take out Lucia's Pendant and wear it a time or two. Sometimes it makes an interesting conversation starter. Depending if they made the string long enough, I might wear the one coming with the guide. It looks kinda nifty.

My wife wears the watch from Virtue's Last Reward all the time, and its amazing how many compliments she gets for it. Of course we stopped telling people it's from a game a while back due to it being too hard for most to comprehend.

If I wore a Virtue's Last Reward watch, I don't know of anyone I associate with who would even know what it is. They'd think I wore some cheap ass thrift store watch, and man that thing is flimsy.

Now if there was some type of really top end watch based off a video game like a Breitling or something, then that would be awesome.

This was listed at $12.99 previously, which means Amazon had the paperback confused with the hardback (probably) as we suspected.

Can somebody put in order the quality of the guide publishers from best to worst?

For example, Prima http://www.amazon.co.../dp/030789097X/, is clearly the worst (cheap newspaper-quality thin paper) and horrible writing and poor design layout, so naturally they would go at the bottom.

Thanks!

From personal experience, I'd rank them:

Future Press (Dark Souls, Portal 2, Deus Ex, etc)
Piggyback (Assassin's Creed series)
Brady Games
Prima

There are probably other publishers, but those are the four I can remember off the top of my head.

...Not to sound like a jerk, but when I suggested preordering that guide in the hopes of actually getting the CE guide, didn't you say that we would get the paperback, not the CE?

Now I wish I had just preordered it at $12.99...

Agreed, but I'd switch future press with piggyback. I think piggy back is the best, I love the artwork they include and the detailed vibrant pages. Like the uncharted 3 hardback, that was amazing to look at. I only have dark souls and Soul Calibur from future press and they are great books, but overall boring to look at haha.

I'm very much anticipating the MGR guide from piggyback.
