Can't wait until January. I'm glad there is so much to look forward to that month because it's often the most depressing month of the year :roll:

so ea store has one set of armor and gamestop has another set and a gun. I'm really starting to hate preorder bonuses like this. I wonder how long in game till you get better gear.

Guess who's back?

This game is just... ugh. So. Damn. Gorgeous. It is a great day to be a ME fanboy.

Oh, and the CE is includes the following though no word as to weapon or armor specifics:

- BETTER FUCKING COVER ART FOR ONE (>_>)
- Tin case
- Issue 1 of the new ME comic
- 48-page "Art of Mass Effect" Art Book
- Behind the scenes DVD
- New exclusive armor and weapons (neither of the preorder ones to my knowledge)

I couldn't find any info on that Amazon page so correct me if I'm wrong. Not a bad haul for only $10 more. What really astounds me though is the devs ability to release a video that seems to appeases most of their naysayers on their own forums. The only problem is now they're bitching about having to pick up ammo in a damn shooter RPG. LOL. They are without a doubt utterly hopeless, haha. I have no doubt they'll be a reasonable explanation for ammo pick ups via codex. Sheesh. >_>'

MUST HAVE GAME IS MUST HAVE KTHX.

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

The Collector's Edition box art for this game is probably the most boner-inducing cover I've seen in a while. I'll gladly drop dollars on it.

Plus there's one item Jarrett Lee says they can't talk about yet due to legal reasons. When he sincerely asked what else could be thrown in there to make us happy, I suggested future DLC discount/codes. He said what's included is something I'd like even more. We're still waiting on stats for this new armor too.

New content coming on GTTV plus new video coming soon which will explain CE armor (amongst other things).

I certainly wouldn't mind a surprise especially if it is better than or on par with a DLC discount. Thanks for the heads up. Does anyone know if the armor shot on the Amazon page is legit? My Photoshop sense is tingling but if it is indeed a sneak peek of things to come then I'll be wearing one hell of a dumb grin on my face for the rest of the day.

It's completely legit. They just don't have an in-game render of it yet. Speculation is that since it is collector inspired, the weapon will be some type of beam weapon. There's also going to be a cerberus network card in the CE. That may have something to do with the part of the CE they can't talk about yet.

What in the hell is a cerberus network card? What are are you talking about?

Cerberus is a rogue human military organization bent on making humans the dominant species in the galaxy. They are very important in ME2, and have a big part in the second ME novel. It's likely some DLC card that is fashioned to look like it has a place in the game universe.

edit: If you plan on pre-ordering the CE from Amazon, I suggest you do it NOW. Upping the quantity to 600 in my cart causes an error, which means they have less than 600 to give out. That doesn't mean they won't be allocated more, but it does mean you should pre-order if you can. It's free, so there's no harm done.

Thanks for the warning. Got my 360 copy of the CE pre-ordered. I cannot wait for this game. Although it's going to destroy the start of my Spring semester, as it comes out about 2 weeks after the semester starts :D

Thanks. I preordered a 360 CE copy. I got this since I have the ME1 CE and my save is on the 360. I generally prefer getting games for the PC, since you don't get mods for games on consoles.

I preordered from Amazon, just to be safe. I'm going to stop by my local gamestop to preorder there, though. I like that exclusive armor better than the Amazon one.

Man I usually don't go out and watch gameplay videos of an upcoming game since I don't want to spoil anything and experience everything in the game but man that ME2 video was kick ass. Kotaku also had a video of the enemies of ME2 and that was killer as well.

Mass Effect was one of the reasons I finally broke down and got a 360. I can't fucking wait for this one.

Added new videos to the OP just now. However, there have been a few new videos coming out that have begun diving further into the story than some people may want to know about (such as non-party characters, etc.), so they will be excluded from the OP and can be posted under spoiler tags.

They had a few rumors debunked with the latest OXM issue (Holiday 2009) but other than that I will not read anything about the game from them since they don't know the meaning of spoiling spoilers.

Armor and a gun from gamestop and just armor from amazon but no tax and free shipping. The gun looks nice but i'm not sure if I want to spend the extra money on the game. Is their any promo codes to use on gamestop.com to get cheaper shipping?

EDIT: Now that I look at it amazon does not list the bonus for preordering with the LE so I wonder if you still get it with the LE from amazon or not.

I think it's better than the first announced cover, but it's still no Collector's Edition. I am glad, though, that they decided to showcase my planned squad for my first ME2 playthrough 8-)
