Piggyback Guidebook

I finally saw a listing for them today, so I'm trying to decide which one version to get: Regular or Hardcover (i.e. the CE version).

For me, I've only bought the regular versions for the last two games, so I'm not against getting the regular version for the third time. I know they're nice enough, and by the prices I'm seeing, almost 13 (lol) bucks cheaper than the hardcover version.

Buuuuuut...

Since LR doesn't appear to have any tangible extras or collector's edition with the game release, I feel like splurging the extra and getting the hardcover version. The description of the hardcover claims it'll have about 30 more pages, which I assume is extra art and what not.

Thoughts?

The extra pages will be mostly snippets of art and the development team's comments. If you're into that kind of thing, then go for it by all means.

FFXIII-2's CE guide had a lot of leftovers even if they were limited, so idk.

I guess it really boils down to how much you love this saga or any of the characters couples with your financial capabilities. If 13 bucks is nothing to you, and you're a collector, a final fantasy fan, or a lightning fan, or a whatever, then I think you should pick it up. If you're in it for the content of the guide for gameplay purposes and don't particularly like this series and not a collector, then go for the standard edition

I personally bought the CE guide.

Well I certainly liked FFXIII and Lightning well enough, but not to the point of buying every single thing related to them (not that I don't want them, I just don't have the munniez or space :'D).

I just really wanted LR to have a special edition in NA and EU...

I think I will get the hardcover one after all. The place I usually buy books from gives out discount codes every so often, so I'll probably save a few bucks anyways *shugs*

This English one? Awesome, was hoping they'd do one for LR.

Hmmm, a little related, but for some reason Play-Asia has a listing for the US version of the guide book from...Prima Games?

I concur, the binding was always just fine with Piggyback's white hardbound specials.

the FFXII paperback fell apart, but that was made by Brady Games.
I am looking forward to the hardcover, I have mine reserved with the game.
