    I remember for Morrowind I printed the whole entire strategy guide and had a stack of Printing Paper 5 inches thick.

    Then for Oblivion I bought the strategy guide with the game the moment I got the game.

    I remember doing that for Diablo 1, just so I didn't have to remember shrines. Printed it all off at my school, was like 120 pages, printed it in runs of 20 so they wouldn't wonder why I was standing at the printer forever, lol.
    AphexDreamer says thanks.

    Yeah, hardcover is the way to go, but I'll usually pass on it if it is a lot more.

    Fiancee is still in Taiwan... wonder if I can convince her to pre-order from there, get me a second copy, just for the Asian pre-order bonus.... Nah, don't think I have a chance at that, even BEFORE I ordered the Hardback Strat heheheh :banghead:

    I didn't skip it. I played it when it released. At the time I was running my new GF3 Ti200.

    But knowing how good it was then wouldn't make me play it now. I've tried recently with all sorts of mods and visual packs...its really hard on the eyes and I can't play it considering how far games have come.

    I already pre-ordered the NON collectors edition but I think I may reconsider...


    /edit Never mind...I don't see anything worth the $149.99 in that package.

    But I think I may grab the strat guide. I never buy these but in this case I think it would be worth it and if Im going to buy it I may as well get the hard cover.

    Wow, with Morrowind looking like that, I would play it today... That MGE mod is no longer available for download? Not even on oldversion or such "defunct software" sites? Or has it become incompatible with current versions of Windows?

    Just saw this deal at bestbuy I have about $35 of trade in value on xbox 360 games. I wander if I can use that money towards the PC version.
    If I got $35+50% =$52.5 Off of Skyrim!

    I just broke down and pre-ordered the PC version instead of waiting for a sale after it's release . . . Amazon Prime guarantees free release-date delivery, but I won't get a chance to play it until Monday most likely, or Sunday night if I'm lucky. :ohwell:

    Well never mind about Bestbuy to do in-store trade in you You must have a valid Best Buy receipt. I don't and for that 50% its in-store trad in only, but you can still trade in with out receipt just online. I will go try gamestops 30%

    I'm best off not having mine until Monday anyway. My daughter and I have plans that weekend, and the last thing I need is the distraction of knowing the game is there, waiting, calling... me....:banghead::banghead::banghead: NO!. I will not give in :roll::roll:
