publishers want to lead you by the nose so you wont see the whole picture and realize dont actually need any of it.
i think i am done with Coll. Ed.'s. Gears was my last, and cool as Borderlands 2 looked, im glad i took a pass on it.
Pretty much. I fell for it again with Guild Wars 2 HoM but after getting close to 50/50 and pouring hundreds of hours into the first game and then BARELY PLAYING THE SECOND I realized that it was stupid to pay money to get bonus content when none of the bonus content matters.
Also, you don't even see your character in the game so why bother paying for armor you dont even see?
I have never bought a special edition for any game. I will preorder from GameStop however, as that usually upgrades you to some sort of Limited Edition at no extra charge, which is good enough for me. That's just my opinion of course, but I've never purchased anything else.
You could see what the statue looked like before you bought the special edition and the fact that you didn't use the flames is entirely your preference. You could see what everything you got was so I don't know why you purchased it if you thought it looked stupid
