It took a little longer to reach the shores of Australia, but my Collector’s Edition arrived today.
As I’ve remarked on before, this purchase was mostly to acknowledge the long time I have spent playing this game. I was particularly keen on getting the book, which looks great, and on first review does a great job outlining the history of the game so far. As I flipped through I kept having “Oh, I remember that” moments. The Rifter model was more flimsy than I expected and a little roughly put together. I’ve put it on my bookcase where it looks much better from a distance. I redeemed the various digital items – implanted the not so Golden Pod on my Main Toon, stored the collector’s items away, and put a handful of items that I am never going to use up on the market. Now I’m listening to the CD.
