On Thursday last week I received my copy of Duke Nukem Forever: Balls of Steel Edition. I’ve had, up to now, 2 collectors edition games of this calibre which have been Far Cry 2 and most recently Total War: Shogun 2. Far Cry 2 included in the package a t-shirt, map and art book as well as other items. and my Total War: Shogun 2 collectors edition contained a handpainted bamboo chess set. This is incredible and I think both collectors editions were great for the asking price and both contain items I can put on display or use. I much prefer a collectors edition which contains physical items than an edition which mostly comprises of digital extras and whilst you normally do get a few digital items I mainly spend the extra money because I feel I’m getting something worthwhile out of it and not something I have to keep playing the game to appreciate.
So, to not only celebrate the release of Duke Nukem Forever and for my love of collectors editions with some meaningful goodies in them I am sharing with you 4 pictures of the boxing in it’s packaging before ever being opened and it’s contents:
