so i got the game and i love it, but i have a small and probably weird issue it has nothing to do with gameplay or the way the dlc works. It's the instruction booklet, it stinks in the most literal sense of the word, i actually read the booklets and when i started reading this one i noticed the smell, seriously and i'm not the kind of person that goes around sniffing stuff it's just weird how much it stinks anyone elses booklet stinks?

Not particularly, but they ARE made in China, so they always smell a little funky.
I think I know what you mean though, I can't remember the game anymore, but I had an instruction booklet that absolutely stank, it was disgusting and filled the whole car up with gross smells. No idea how it happens, but you should probably not eat it.

At least it's in colour and there actually is a manual.

well...i took a waft of the booklet and it didn't smell any different than other instruction manuals... lol

i actually like this handbook, i think it gives way more helpful information than most plus it is colored!

I think the smell you're referring to is just the smell of freshly printed pages.

The paper gloss is likely toxic.

Funny, mine is in black and white. I have the European edition of the game for 360. I can't remember anything about the smell, but I guess they just used some cheap ass toxic ink to print it in China. ;-)
