Why do that to me John? My collectors edition is sitting at home waiting for me while I'm at uni ;_;

And damn! That mouse mat looks awesome!

Mr.Funk is rocking some wicked mutton chops.

Isn't that the soundtrack that's always running in the barrens?

I'm really looking forward to not knowing stuff about wow anymore in cata. It's getting embarassing to recognize questsbjectives based solely on snippets of information or names.

I have two of those boxes sitting on my desk... Why two collectors editions you ask? Because its how i roll =D

(no-one else in my house plays wow, so yes i have 2 collectors editions for myself.... and only one account)

Massive ROLF at John Funk trying desperately to maintain a thin veneer of journalistic integrity and not weep like an over-excited fanboy who just wallpaper-pasted his boxers to the inside of his jeans.

Bravo to you sir! :)

Was Mr. Funk observing no-shave November? Someone should tell him what month it is :D

Anyway. That would be worth for just the Soundtrack, for me. All I've really heard of the new songs is the new Orgrimmar theme...and it's AMAZING.

Tragically I just took up WoW a month ago, so my Tauren Hunter is only 75. Was hoping to get 80 before the expansion, but real life just has to take priority :(

Ah, an unboxing video.

Pure packaging porn.

So what's this?.. The Escapist is on Blizzards payroll now or something?

I don't mean to offend but this comes closer to being and advertisement than being news.

Mr Funk is also going bald :P I can't wait for the comb over.

Even though I don't play WoW, this was really cool. And the moment where John stuttered and said "This is what came, this is why you buy it." And know I feel bad for laughing at that. :/

There's nothing wrong with having fun. I like doing unboxing videos because they *are* fun. People like seeing what's inside them; we like seeing what's inside them. It's all entertainment :)

Ah, I'm jealous... I need all three expansions now. Looks like it's time to save $110! Woot.

I personally think its better to have someone who loves the subject dearly do the unboxing rather than an uninterested party or someone who hates WoW.

The escapist has done this before with other games from other companies so I think its just more of something that people like to see rather than advertising. I doubt this will make people that didn't order the CE get a CE. I know I ordered the standard edition and while this is fun to watch, will not make me get the CE.

Damn it all. My Cataclysm hasn't gotten here yet because snow is stopping the delivery people getting here. I'm a sad panda :(. Wish I'd had the money for the collectors edition.

whywhywhywhywhywhywhyyyyy???

Don't even have Cataclysm yet... :(

FUUUUUUUUUUU. I don't want to get this game at all, but I'm so tempted while waiting for TOR or Guild Wars 2. Worgen Shadow Priest...drool...

DAMN! That is a sweeeet mousepad =)

Picked up the Collector's Edition at the Midnight Launch. Played a bit in Mount Hyjal before I remembered I had to get up in 3 hours for work. Trying to quest was terrible as everyone is trying to do the same beginning quests at the same time. I am almost thinking of taking a week off and letting people get over trying to be first in everything.

Heck in the first hour or so we had 3 realm firsts for various professions. Not sure how that happened..

First off those are some good looking motten-chops you have there Mr.Funk. And those a some neat collectibles you got there.

OT: where can i get that art book? Without buying the collectors addition.

Yup. No box in the mail today. Much like my guildie said, I will never again order something for delivery that I actually want to have on its release date.

Meanwhile, I sit right in front of the archaeologist. Waiting...

Epic beard.

Never felt like paying twice the price for CE.

i have to wait untill after my exams to play this...in january....fuck -.- do want so bad!!!

Man I miss the days where games came in boxes as standard. Way better than just a DVD case.

isnt there like a special to get all 3 previous installement for 20$ going on?

I love the escapist as much as the next guy, but considering all the recent Wow episodes and all the Wow advertisements, i just cant shake the feeling that the escapist have sold their virgin bum holes to Blizzard...all thats left to prove my theory is Yahtzee giving Cataclysm a good review

no way yahtzee will never bend the knee to fanboys. He will not touch the game since he hasn't touched StarCraft yet.

I've been fairly happy with Final Fantasy XIV until recently (especially when Squeenix FINALLY added an inventory auto-sort function, among some other things) but for some strange reason, when I get to the character select screen and click on my one character (being able to change jobs whenever is rather handy/neat, as far as I'm concerned), it goes to "Now Loading..." then promptly turns my monitor off and restarts my computer. Um.. Yay. So I ended up canceling the account, which will last until the end of this new free trial period. Conveniently received a 7 day free access e-mail from Blizzard for WoW so.. That was nice timing..

I played the Cataclysm beta and from what I got to try out, it was pretty fun! Can't really complain about what I've experienced during this 7 day access either.. Not being able to change job/class on one character is kinda lame (multiple characters all going separately isn't that fun, although at least the quests are fairly different.

Still not sure if I'm going to commit to the game again though, I have other games on my list and may not have that much free time otherwise. However, I noticed EBGames Australia's online store still has Collector's Editions available (strictly 1 per customer) and $108 AUD isn't too bad for a cool soundtrack, exclusive in-game pet, expansion disc AND art book..

Thanks for giving a better look at the contents, John! The art book is especially quite shiny..

This is really cool, my only gripe is I got an alliance deck of cards and not horde, NOOOOO!

I don't even play wow and I thought the collectors edition, or whatever they call it, was freaking sweet o.O

The only things I've ever really wanted out of the collector editions were the soundtracks. The rest of the stuff is niffty and all but damn, the music is great. As it is, I'm also stingy these days so it's the plain version for me. :(
