I'll just say the game is easily worth more than $30. I think it's one of the best experiences this year, to be honest.

This...I don't know. I think being gamestop-only pretty much kills it for me.

It's an ok deal. Book is actually 35 shipped via amazon and the game is 30 dollars. Basically save 5 dollars and get a cool box out of it. Not bitching about it and I think its a great marketing strategy for new comers of the series (both game and book series).

MSRP and in the collectors edition thread.

I think it's humorous that one of the bullet points is the compendium retailing for $59.99 yet they're selling both compendiums for $39.99 each. Better yet, Amazon has them for $35.99 each. Since the game is retailing for $29.99, all you're really getting is the exclusive cover and I guess the box. All that being said, I was waiting on the retail disc and I only have the first trade which covers the first six issues, I don't feel as bad paying retail for this. Especially after reading how much praise the game has been getting.

*edit
And what's up with the watermark?

I hate it when GameStop has these exclusives that I want. I don't resent them that much like some of you guys, but I don't have credit there, unlike amazon and BBY...

I feel the same way. I've been trying to get Xenoblade Chronicles but it's Gamestop exclusive. Everywhere I look online besides there it's ~$70. I've been to three different Gamestops and all they had were the "New" copies that were open with stickers all over the case, and probably missing the Club Nintendo codes.

A book that's been out for a few years and a big cardboard box classify this as a collector's edition? They're really stretching it.

I'm really excited about the (regular) disc release. I stopped after Episode 1 realizing it's not really something I need to own but I would love to Redbox it or buy it day one and sell/trade when I'm done a week later.

It's $69.99, so that's actually $5 more than $35 + $30 :D

Apparently at this point Nintendo is only selling Xenoblade as part of a bundle with the classic controller: http://store.nintend...8&storeId=10001

As for Walking Dead, maybe Telltale will offer this Collector's Edition in their own store for the Gamestop averse.

I f***ing hate store-exclusives, especially Gamestop exclusives.

Way too expensive. I'll just get the game for ~$15 next time it is on sale. Not paying $55 for a book and box.

I ordered it from gamestop.com. That's nice to know that I can get it from the Nintendo Store. If Gamestop sends me an open new copy I'll just return it and order from Nintendo, since it's only $15 more for the controller bundle.

I just finished episode 4 and have to say, this is one of the best gaming experiences I have had in a long long time.

I'm all over this if they make stackable trophy lists. I would like an excuse to play the game and see the different outcomes.

It's a Walking Dead special edition with an exclusive comics cover. It's a limited edition of a game and a comic, with crossover TV show appeal. It will probably be worth a lot post-release.

Would be buying this, but they decided they didn't want PC gamer dollars. Oh well.

I paid like $35 or $40 for the first compendium and just got the second one for $30ish. Game was like $12 for the PC.

There really isn't much exclusive here. If they had a disc version for PC and I could order it for less than $30 I might consider that.

Newcomers like me that will probably get it, yup. Sucks it's GS exclusive but remember, they don't make shit off msrp sales. That will help me sleep at night at least

I think it looks pwetty :3

OT, I'm a bit interested in this. I haven't read the books and I want to play the Walking Dead Episodes. It would be cheaper to wait until the retail game gets cheaper and buy the compendium separately though.

The Compendium isn't $59.99. It's around $37 on Amazon. http://www.amazon.co...dead compendium

MSRP and in the collectors edition thread.


I feel like an ass for not noticing it there (and wouldn't have posted this new thread), but I'll stop short of apologizing. A separate Wii U pre-order thread led me to get my pre-order in at Walmart, so I'm thankful for that. Sometimes [I feel] things need their own thread. I actually checked the gaming forums first to see if it was posted there. You know though, pointing out that it's "MSRP" is hypocritical since you yourself posted this in the collector's thread in this very forums. Regardless, thanks for steering me there :). I can admit when I've done wrong.

And what's up with the watermark?


I was bored; thought it'd be goofy.

Man that cover artwork is amazing. Already have the game on PC but I would love to own that alternate compendium.

I don't understand why the box is that big if its just the game and comic book. Is there something else not announced like a figurine? I will preorder this once I get more details, its going to be a great x-mas gift to any walking dead fan.

Steel case no boon and box for 50 maybe i buy. I got the book for 25 shipped long ago think from amazon price dip. If it was not gs i prob get anyways oh well prob be super cheap cause it lacks something that stands out.

Retailer exclusive and only through pre-order. This might be one of those collector's editions that goes for half price a few months down the line.


I'm pretty sure it will go the other way, just like the DOA5 CE, and be real hard to find after the fact. (I don't think it will have the value of the DOA5 CE but I could be wrong, The Walking Dead series is just ridiculously hot right now. )

Anyhow, I really wanted this when I read the new but missed it being a GS exclusive... Now I'm not so sure.

I got it all in comic form (comic, not TPB) so I really don't need the compendium so I should just pass...

Well the comic is 1000 pages and weighs 5.3 pounds...

I will say that for as much as Publishers complain about GS killing the games industry with used sales they sure don't mind giving them exclusive shit to sell.
