Update, part 2!

Here is part two of my photo update :) I know I said check back in a few hours, and it's been a bit more than a few hours, but hey - at least it's getting done!

Anyway, here it is:



Okay, so on the top shelf here, you can see my Sniper Ghost Warrior Collector's Edition, packaged in a real life Ammo box (presumably from WWI or WWII?) and it comes with some random items - which you will see more of when I get round to unboxing it. The small box next to it shouldn't actually be on the shelf (again, placed there to keep out of AJ's reach) and it contains a Dragon Ball (number 4). Next to that, the white car looking thing is the Press Kit for Modnation Racers, and then you'll see my Cole statue from the inFamous 2 Hero Edition, and my Ico & Wander to Kyozou bundle (also known as the Ico & Shadow of the Collosus bundle) which was exclusive to Japan :)

On the shelf below it, I have my Resistance 3 Survival Edition, which sadly I had to import from Germany despite having a UK copy on preorder for months before release, due to a mess up caused by Gamestation (more on this when I get round to unboxing it!), and my Ninja Gaiden 3 Special Edition (which despite being within my PS3 shelves, is actually for Xbox 360) and underneath it, you can't really see it, but there is my GTAIV Special Edition (which I'm hoping to also get for Xbox 360 at some point) and some Grand Theft Auto San Andreas wrapping paper, still sealed in packaging, from way back upon release (albeit I purchased it recently from the lovely Sheena over at CEo) 



Really bad lighting on this photo, but as you can see it showcases my Sonic and Assassin's Creed shelves :)

Top shelf: the Sonic shelf, contains my Sonic Generations Collector's Edition, of which the contents are on display, and a sealed copy of the Australian exclusive Sonic Generations steelbook (which was a preorder bonus over there I believe).

Underneath we have the Assassin's Creed shelf, which is fit to burst! It has the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Collector's Edition on the left hand side (the one with the Harlequin jack-in-the-box), the Codex Edition of AC:B in the front centre, behind that is the Assassin's Creed Revelations Collector's Edition (albeit barely noticeable) and on the left hand side is the Animus Edition of AC:R with two steelbooks in front of it - one for Revelations, and the other is the preorder bonus steel for ACIII.



This is my sort of "neglected" shelves, which are unfortunately located behind my television due to lack of space. So things tend to be a little messier on these shelves as it's pretty difficult to get into!

Top shelf, we have three PC editions, and one Xbox 360 edition. Originally had planned the top shelf to just be for PC editions, but couldn't really have one Call of Juarez The Cartel CE there without the other!
So as you can see, there is the Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines Collector's Edition, behind it (barely noticeable) is my Tales of Monkey Island CE, and behind that my Call of Juarez The Cartel Outlaw Edition and Polish Collector's Edition, respectively. 

Underneath, there are a variety of steelbooks, tins, smaller CEs, and a couple of 3DS slipcovers. I'll do a proper show of that shelf at some other point, probably whenever I move the TV to actually get access to it!



Lower down on these shelves are just all standard copy Xbox 360 games, and a few with slipcovers. And on the floor in front of it is my copy of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection NTSC CE, and MGS HD Limited Edition (Zavvi Exclusive). In front of those are some stadard copy games that have recently been played/purchased, and yet to be put away (I know, messy messy!).

And in the far right of the image, some of you may notice a creepy little squashed up bunny. That is, in fact, a hand puppet, that AJ decided to launch behind the TV, and I can't reach to rescue it haha! 



Back to the main set of shelves now, and this is the lower sections, and as you can see - there is quite a lot on the floor in front of the shelves (that's how much I'm struggling for space!).

Top shelf here is my Call of Duty shelf, has the COD Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition on the left (night vision goggles, very difficult to see in that crappy lighting), at the back, steelbooks/Hardened edition parts from the Prestige Editions of Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops, and a Jumbo COD Modern Warfare collection steel aswell. And a small Brady Games guide that I picked up for £1 :P At the back, there is my preorder pack for Modern Warfare 3, front centre you'll see the RC Car from the Black Ops Prestige Edition, and on the right hand side, the Hardened Edition of Modern Warfare 3 :)

Underneath, there is my Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition, Saints Row The Third Platinum Pack, Saints Row 2 Collector's Edition (in gun packaging), in front there is my Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition (signed by a member of the CD Projekt dev team) and on the right hand side, you'll see my F.3.A.R CE and (probably invisible due to shoddy lighting) F.3.A.R steelbook and Press Kit.

On the floor in front of the shelves, I have two Skylanders Starter Packs (one for Xbox 360 and one for PS3), my Diablo III CE (right in front of Skylanders, behind the brown box) and Witcher 2 Dark Edition to the right of the Skylanders packs.



Floor picture, from a slightly different angle, shows that the brown box to the left is my Max Payne 3 Special Edition (have left it in it's outer box to protect it for now) and it has the preorder bonus pen tucked in the top of the box too. My Risen 2 Keg Edition (which is GORGEOUS by the way) and then to the right, my Prototype 2 Blackwatch Collector's Edition.



Bottom of the other side of shelves, I have a PC shelf, which contains a variety of items related to Super Meat Boy, all signed by Team Meat, my Super Meat Boy Rare Edition (not signed), my Limbo Collector's Edition (which was exclusive to Germany I believe) and my Star Wars The Old Republic CE, in which my poor little Darth Malgus statue was maimed a while ago (AJ decided to throw a disc at it and chopped his arm off!) but has since been repaired with some glue whilst I wait on a replacement!

On the floor, there is the box for my Ninja Gaiden 3 CE, my Crystal original Xbox and a little tub full of my Skylanders :)

Oh and on top of the Ninja Gaiden 3 CE box, there is a Max Payne 3 Guidebook that I won, and little cards from the Skylanders, and a bluray copy of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was a gift to Allan from our friends on his birthday a week or two ago :)

Anyway, I'm tired again, and really didn't anticipate how much time it would take to do one of these little updates, so I shall do Part 3 tomorrow! So check back then :D
