A special edition that'll make your parents cry.

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

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.

The first thing I noticed is why in the heck would you give out a mouse pad for a console game?
 
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.

Ah...so much false advertising for this game... 
 
90% of the people who buy this will be so dissappointed. 
 
That pillowcase reminds me of...some weird stuff i've seen...

I didn't realize Agarest was such a "sketchy" game except for the Soul Breed system.  The way Aksys is marketing it, should be interesting.  To me, it looks like one of those NIS games (something that should have been on the PS2 but got upgraded).  I'm not into that sort of thing, though I love JRPGs, I might check this one out if it doesn't make me too uncomfortable to play in front of my girlfriend who also likes JRPGs...
 
I'm guessing it probably won't happen :D
 
Props to Aksys for such a ... large... amount of extra content.

The only people who will want this are 14 year olds with no job, will their parent really but this for them?

Why pay money for something that can be obtainable for free on the internet?

I'm all for boobs on a mouse pad, but I'm not sure if I want to pay that kinda of money for the other things though.

Personally a day one purchase for me ;)

Wow. If I were to get this package, I don't think I could look girls in the eye anymore. This is almost body pillow creepy.

The mousepad i must admit looks awesome (you know the stupid awesome, but cool in it's way?) ...... her breasts are to make the mousepad ergonomic LOL?

This is what happens to you when you buy special editions of games that come with anime pillows.
