Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

Tomb Raider Collector's Edition Is Fresh Off The Boat
Square Enix revealed the Tomb Raider Collector's Edition today, saying that the Collector's Edition will be available in limited quantities at release on March 5th, 2013. Along with a sense of adventure and danger (with a slight glaze of sexy fragility, players will open the Collector's Edition to find:
Play Arts -KAI- Lara Croft figurine - The figure comes with an alternate set of three hands, bow and arrow, shotgun, handgun, and an ice axe. Double-sided island map and poster - Discover Key Landmarks from the mysterious island of Yamatai, where Lara Croft and her fellow castaways were marooned afther the Endurance shipwreck, in this 15"x19" poster. Lithographic print - An exclusive 5"x7" Lara Croft heavy-stock litograph print with matte frame designed by Crystal Dynamic's Brian Horton, senior art director, and Brenoch Adams, concept artist. Experience Shields - Three iron-on badges based on the game's experience icons: "Animal Instincts," the "Climbing Axe" and "Fire Arrow." TOMB RAIDER Original Soundtrack "Survivalist Cut" - A collection of 10 tracks with over 60 of music from the game. Weapons Pack Downloadable Content - includes a variety of weapons to help Lara survive against the island's inhabitants.
This Collector's Edition will retail for $99.99. If you just have to play with a young, posable Lara Croft, here's your chance! Compared to some other Collector's Editions, I suppose this one isn't too bad. Some DLC, a few patches, but the obvious star here is the Play Arts -KAI- figure. Those things are incredibly detailed and come packed with goodies, as Lara does here with her weaponry.
