This year is flying by!
It's unreal how fast this year has gone. Seems like it was just yesterday when we all flipped over to January on our calendars (oops, mine is still at March 2012...) and now we are nearly in October!
Phew. Not long left of this year, which is actually quite a good thing tbh. This year has been one of the best and worst years for collecting, in my opinion.
We've had some absolute belters (the Scottish in me there, basically means "awesome things" to non-Scottish folk) this year so far, such as the Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition, The Last of Us Post-Pandemic Edition, Saints Row IV Emperor Zinyak's Game of the Generation Edition and the GTA V Collector's Edition, and that's just a handful!
We still have the amazing upcoming releases of Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch_Dogs, just to name a few, and they all have some pretty awesome editions lined up so far.
And all of this isn't even including the barrage of movies we've seen this year. As a friend (Gemini-Phoenix, over at CE.org and SteelbookHunterz) pointed out a few days ago:
"So far this year (1st Jan-1st Oct) there have been over 85 UK SteelBook releases. Between 1st Oct and the end of the year, there will be more than 70! These next three months are going to get quite hectic, so keep checking the list regularly to stay on top of them!"
The list he is referring to is his amazing Definitive List of Forthcoming UK Bluray Steelbooks, and it is an absolute Godsend - makes keeping track of all these Steelbooks much easier (albeit I've unfortunately had to cancel pretty much all of my preorders - boo!)
It can be found here, however you will have to sign up to view it (don't worry, it's free to sign up, but you do have to wait to have your account approved by an admin!), but believe me, it's worth it.
I am going to be uploading an unboxing for you all this weekend, either of the GTA V Collector's Edition, or the Saints Row IV Emperor Zinyak's Game of the Generation Edition :) Leave your vote in the comments below, or on the post on my Facebook page here and remember to give me a like while you're there ;)
I'll also be doing a giveaway once I reach 150 fans on my Facebook page, so the more you share on my page, and the more friends you can get to like it, the sooner the giveaway will begin!
So get liking!
Has this year flown by for you? Which edition do you vote for my unboxing this weekend?
