No Instruction Booklet

#1 Posted by 014 (349 posts) -

I normally never open an instruction booklet so that it looks crisp and brand new when I resell, still I found it strange this game didn't come with one. The box it came in has a slot for a booklet. Did I miss the news that there wasn't going to be a booklet for this game? It's a $50 game!

It's all digital now. That and reading a tiny little booklet would just be silly.

Anyone remember the old Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale manuals?

Sigh.

@TentPole: I know right?

Thank god we don't have those anymore.

I guess you missed purchasing a game in the last like forever. Nearly all publishers are getting rid of booklets because of the amount of unnecessary paper is uses.

Manuals are becoming a thing of the past unfortunately.

All the Vita manuals are digital and come on the cards, like how PSP and Vita games purchased from PSN come with digital manuals.

@TentPole: I can't hear you very well, you might need to come out of the past.

@DeeGee: I like modern games. I also like old games. Most games these days don't need manuals. Those old spiral bound manuals were still cool though.

Why do you have a problem with that?

You get a lovely full colored digital manual on the card. 43 pages long.
