Should I buy the Normal (Black Armor) Edition or the Collector's Edition of Dark Souls 2?
The CE doesn't sound that great. I've never been a fan of statues coming with CE's as they are usually of shoddy quality and useless unless you have a bunch of shelf/desk space. Artbooks are just as pointless (to me, at least) and a map could be cool but not for $120.
Personally, I would go with the standard edition. Well, actually, I would prefer a copy in a non-metal case, if the option was there. Not a huge fan of metal cases.
Ill put it this way, for $60 can buy you a new game that you would probably enjoy far more then a cheap statue, cloth map and small art book.
The power of truth. Don't waste your money dude. The cloth map is cool, but the rest of it is just junk.
I'm getting the Black Armour edition because it's only $2 more than the base game from where I ordered online. Not sure how much more expensive the Black Armour edition is in the US but if it's more or less the same then just get it. Pay a couple extra bucks for the soundtrack is pretty cool.
The Black Armor edition's the better deal. Same price as the standard edition, plus you get the soundtrack. Still need to see if I can pre-order that anywhere locally. Would rather be able to pick the game up on day-one than wait for it to arrive via the mail.
You are paying $60 for the statue. Do you want it that bad? I have said yes for the life size helmet that came with halo 3, the metal safe box in gta iv, and the big daddy statue that came with bioshock. I have in the last six months grown tired of the halo helmet collecting dust on a shelf and watching me sleep so I threw it out. The big daddy statue was amazing but feel off my desk onto the floor and cracked into tiny bits in the first few days I had it. The only thing that has lasted and still gets used is the metal lock box from gta iv. I still use it to this day as the case to keep all my receipts and tax stuff in.
The moral of the story is that unless you really like the statue don't buy it. Buy another game.
