If Predxeno cares more about his game looking "durable" than what it comes with, let him want a steelbook.
I'm more interested in the enjoyment I get out of the game. Story decisions be damned

If I was going to pay more for a Collectors Edition I'd want more actual content.

Yeah, I was talking more about A:CM in general, but I agree with you there.
I really wish game developers would try to do a bit more than just skins and stuff. I'd love it if they gave people early acces to mini campaigns and such in their editions. Something more filling than just visual flare.

still mad that there's no steel book

I agree here, Steelbooks are what make the Collector's Editions so great.  I love having a shiny metal box for a video game case, it looks so impressive and durable.

It's just packaging.

Yes, but it's something that's supposed to come with a Collector's Edition; it's implicitly implied.  It's like buying a Collector's Edition without a statue or figurine of some kind.

Sure it's not a redundant tautology?

I woulda thought the content of a collectors edition is whatever the distributor says it is, and there's no set rules about steel cases or toys or whatever.  It's just something to suck more money out of the hardcore fans.

Well, it's also like buying a game without an instruction manual.

You don't need a steel case or toys.  You do need a manual.

Well, personally I think a steelbook is an equivalent of a statue/figure or a DLC pack being included in the Collector's Edition; you have to have it.

That's because nobody buys the PC Collector's Editions for some reason. ???

Except in order to play the game - you don't.

How is Gearbox not adding in the Colonial Marine Manual that was just recently back in print as a collector's edition item. Missed opportunity there.

'Cos people reading the book would go - how come they didn't include all these cool weapons and explosives and tanks and stuff?

Maybe in that bonus level where you use weapons...maybe that's where they can be shown. I guess.
