Now that the PS4 is nearing the end of its lifespan, I’m starting to think about which games I still want for the system. One of them is Torment Tides of Numenera. I kept my eyes open for a cheap copy of the game when I encountered an ad for the Kickstarter Collector’s Edition. This was of course a bit more expensive than the regular edition, but it also offers a lot more goodies. Namely a manual, an art book, the soundtrack on CD, a cloth map and a couple of novellas. Very nice to have. But what’s up with the box?
First up it’s simply too big. It doesn’t fit nicely on the shelf. I appreciate that it probably also must have been able to house additional goodies. But this is one of the reasons I don’t usually like these kind of collectors editions. They are just too big.
And then there’s the look of the thing. It’s just a big black box. Not nice to look at. It will probably get a place somewhere out of sight where I can store it. And that’s a shame.
Now I first need to play through Planescape Torment. A game I have put some hours in years ago, but never finished. But before that, I need to play though Baldur’s Gate II…
