It's the little things that make the difference.
[QUOTE=solid_jake;34823764]It's the little things that make the difference.[/QUOTE] Like day 1 DLC that should be in the game already
this isn't really news
It's sorta tangential but I really miss game manuals, like really big ones that had all the weapons and characters and descriptions and stuff.
[QUOTE=Metanar;34823814]It's sorta tangential but I really miss game manuals, like really big ones that had all the weapons and characters and descriptions and stuff.[/QUOTE] That was the only joy I had when I still bought physical copies. Unpacking it, smelling it (oh man, love that new game smell) and then started reading the manual.
I used to read through every manual whenever I got a game, whether through buying or renting. I always liked those small stories/summaries at the beginning that tell you a short backstory of what's been happening in the game universe. I think my favorite one was for the original Guild Wars. It had like an 100 page manual. Good times.
I could read the manuals while in the backseat, simply dying to get home and play. Ohhh, nostalgia.
Did someone say lesbo sex scenes?
i would read the manuals while taking a shit

I would read the manuals in bed before I went to sleep :v:
Fallout 3 had a pretty sweet manual. Every Zelda game I've owned, too.

Ah the 'ol days, they just don't make toilet-time reading material like they used to.
I used to always go into town, buy a new game to play and sit reading the manual on the bus journey back home. I miss those days.
[QUOTE=Metanar;34823814]It's sorta tangential but I really miss game manuals, like really big ones that had all the weapons and characters and descriptions and stuff.[/QUOTE] MGS:HD is the last game I've bought that had a decent thick manual.
The last good manual I had was Guild Wars
Freelancer had an awesome manual.

It's hilarious how in the video in the article, the guy unboxing the game covers the code for multiplayer, yet he lays it on the table, and in full HD, you can see the code clearly.
The video in the article showing the unboxing of a ME copy, you can see the CD Key for about 1 second. I bet someone will clearify the video and steal the key.

Ah yes, the car journey home with my brand new game where i'd get myself hyped by reading the manual thoroughly and just looking at that wonderful game I had to look forward to installing.
Now it's like: WARRANTY CONTROLS TOS
Manuals used to be shithot.
"So yeah, there is an online pass, we're making day 1 DLC and it will be Origin only on PC. But HEY ! REVERSIBLE COVER !" It's a good idea nonetheless but I feel like they should maybe fix all the other problems with their games along with adding cool stuff to the game's package.
[QUOTE=Novangel;34840154]Now it's like: WARRANTY CONTROLS TOS[/QUOTE]I remember getting a game a few months ago that was literally just a folded sheet of paper, nothing else. Some games don't even have manuals anymore.
