These Big Fish Collecters Editions have me in a Huff! It's so obvious that it just a way to make more money!
Their Games are $6.99 each. But latey, it seems everything is a Collecters edition... they tantilize us by showing us a game 2-3 week early, call it the collecters edition, and charge over 20 bucks for it!!
I do not need "special features" so If you you can wait 2-3 weeks, you will get that same game without the Speacial Features ( which aren't really that special ) for $6.99.
This is become more & more frequent of a thing. My extreme happiness that I have had there for years is starting to dwindle.
Just had to vent that!

Thanks for the information Mystery Lover. For those unfamiliar with Big Fish it will be something to watch out for.

I agree ML. It just isn't worth the extra money for a Collector's edition...that is still a download!! If it's a download...what do you actually collect??? You don't even get a box (which some members on this site have a strange affinity for. Wink )

Ya, I'm just going to wait the 2-3 weeks and get it without the extras for $6.99!
LoL! I never thought of the boxes before.

Yes the download only is a big drawback for the box lovers. Smile

The collector's editions offer extra levels of gameplay plus included strategy guides, music, artwork, etc. Whether all that is worth paying an extra $13 is up for debate, although one does get to play the game a few weeks early as an added bonus. I don't have a problem with this if it allows the devs to get a few extra dollars in their pockets.

Until last month I also didn't care to buy the Collector's Edition of a game as I felt it wasn't worth it and did not care for the extras anyway. However, last month that all changed for me. Without going into the details, I accidentally bought PuppetShow: Souls of the Innocent Collector's Edition and found the in-game Strategy Guide to be extremely useful. It made the game so much more enjoyable for me. So now I'm in favor of getting CE's whenever a game I'm interested in shows up, which so far hasn't happenrd.

I've bought several collector's editions, Dire Grove being one of them. I like having the extras, and it counts for 3 games on my punch card. Big Fish has so many special sales and giveaways that I figure it all comes out in the wash. I always buy their CD, too, for a little added support.

Since buying my first Collector's Edition, I've gone overboard and bought 2 more just this past week: Echoes of the Past: The Castle of Shadows CE (haven't quite finished this yet, got sidetracked by the next one) and Love Chronicles: The Spell CE. I'm also thinking of buying yet another one that I have my eye on! I was very taken with Love Chronicles as the graphics were colorful and scenic like days of old only better, no blocky pixels. Plus the handsome prince's quest was a lot like the old adventures even though this is a hidden object casual game. Very much worth the extra buckazoids (I'm an old Space Quest gamer) and I'm happy to help the developers of new games as best as I can.
