Let's see what they list on CE page:
 
  • Cosmic Star Heroine physical game for the PlayStation Vita
  • Reversible cover
  • 76 page full-color manual
  • Working Designs influenced long-box jewel case featuring a manual and tray card with gloss and foil embellishments
  • 4 art lithographs
  • Reversible 18 x 24 inch poster
  • CD soundtrack
 
Reversible cover, Physical game(obviously) and full-color manual are part of the standard edition. So what's really exclusive in this CE?

These stuff are paper junk for me and I have 0 interest in the jewel case. The only decent content it includes is a soundtrack but their CE's are so good that people considers CSH CE to be their best. LRG is going full EA

So many unnecessary CEs for games that don't deserve them.  I think that people are caught up in the hype of sold-out collector's editions.

a lot of their CE are garbage. like $30-40 more for some papers, soundtrack, mini book, steelbook. not worth it. i'm only interested in the steelbook.

I don't buy much from them but that Working Designs inspired longbox jewel case is right up my alley. Love stuff like that

I played Antiquia Lost for about an hour on my Android phone. It's honestly worth about $2 on a good sale at most. It's super average and while I do like slime girls, cause I like monster girls, it's pretty average overall. I honestly wouldn't recommend it unless you really want a full Vita collection. It is cute, mind you, but very simple and cheap feeling.

While I do agree about only wanting the steelbook, I don't think this is exclusive to LRG. I've been seeing a lot of what I'd consider low-effort CEs lately. I'd personally prefer to just pay MSRP + $10 for a steelbook edition.

yeah, I would gladly pay +$10 just to get the retail version in a steelbook without any extra stuff that's just gonna eat up space

I prefer a small art book but it needs to have developer/artist commentary. These games likely won’t ever get standalone art books so a CE one is as good as it gets. Hardcover preferred, of course.

Lately? Most CEs have always been low effort. At least for the last 5-7 years if not longer. They are money grabs, it's what they are. I had to severely cut down on my CE buying for a variety of reasons. Main being space. I actually started selling many of them off, I just don't have the space anymore.

 

I now only buy CEs if:

 

-It's an IP I absolutely adore, I'll probably buy no matter what unless the contents are completely insulting to the buyer

-Steelbook

-High quality statue/figurine

-Hard cover artbook

 

Basically has cut out all XSEED and NIS CEs henceforth just for starters. And I only don't fear like I'm missing out. It actually feels nice to have this burden off my shoulders and selling a lot of this crap off. I mean going back and looking at the contents, I can't believe I bought so much of this useless money grab crap over the years.

Minus the artbook that's my strategy now as well. I just don't have room for all of the shovelware extras that are being released. I have a bunch of crap I've been meaning to sell off, but between the lowballs and collectors being hypersensitive about condition it's an exhausting effort.

I love Working Designs. I have all their Saturn and Turbografx/CD games but I'm not spending an extra $35 for a CE just because they throw the name Working Designs in the description. The standard editions is pretty nice with the full color manual and reversible cover but since it's $15 extra instead of the usual $10 extra it would have been nice if they included the poster (or anything really) to compensate.
