Ventured over onto Joystiq, as I often do. And found this article about this "Really Naughty Limited Edition" of Record Agarest War. Just rolls right off the tongue don't it?
Here's a pic of what comes inside this special edition. Warning, Abandon all hope ye who enter here.
From the Joystiq article
The first thing I noticed is why in the heck would you give out a mouse pad for a console game?
For the truly despicable amongst us, Aksys has seen fit to package the game with a "Sensual Vira-Lor mouse pad" --featuring ergonomic breasts -- and a "Yearning Ellis pillowcase," packaged in a collector's box adorned with bathing anime girls. There's also a soundtrack CD, but that seems relatively innocuous. The Really Naughty edition, at least, carries a reasonably modest (for a limited edition) price of $59.99, so at least you won't be spending more than usual for the bonus of deep, lifelong shame. It'll be available April 27. Aksys has offered no date for a non-special edition.
Also, and probably the most glaring problem is what boy, because we all know this is marketed towards boys, would have a pink girlly anime pillow case? Not to mention the box art and disc art include up skirts and partial nudity.
And this is a T rated game too. I'm hard pressed to think the actual game will include such themes, which means that this is false advertisement!
But at least some good can come out of all this. With this kind of package we can finally weed out the kids that need some serious help. Maybe it won't be too late for some psycho analysis. Kids, save up those pennies, not for the game but for hours and hours of therapy and for your mom's depression pills.
