Art Book all the way! After looking at screenshots, how can someone choose a t-shirt over all that gorgeous art?

TOTALLY artbook. By far. T-shirt doesn't even stand a chance.

T-Shirt. I got the artbooks with both the Fanbook and the LE, and I will get the equivalent of Perfect Works after I finish.

In other news I won a lithograph on eBay.

I'm getting the t-shirt.. but I will find a way to get that art book you'll see... plus I'm getting the tabletop cutout (the REALLY big one I think won't go over too well with my sister who lives in the same room as me...)

Blah, I want the T-shirt. If I don't get a free one, I'll complain. :P

Well... okay, so you *shouldn't* do this (I do not recommend or condone this), but if you want both, it's very easy. Pre-order it at both, BUT since the pre-order at Gamestop counts just as a credit, you can technically use it towards anything you want by telling the poor employees that you changed your mind. Of course, if you do this more than once, they won't be so nice to you, because you are essentially making them have an item in stock which they won't necessarily be able to sell. Remember, this is bad, but I'll be surprised if rabid collectors don't do it anyway.

Square's been split up and merged into various other companies because it kept doing stupid things (ex: FF online and the movie) that bankrupted it.

Now if I can find Xenogears and finally buy it I'll be happy. Anyhow, I'm getting the art book, good collector's item there and Xeosaga'll probably be the next big rpg I play (and never get around to finishing).

Xenogears was put out by Square. Square was not going to continue the Xeno game series. Xenogears was actually episode 5 in a 6 episode series of games.

Alot of the team that worked on Gears left Square and made a company called Monolith Soft(http://www.monolithsoft.co.jp). Monolithsoft made Xenosaga which is Episode 1 of the 6 part series, and it is being distributed by Namco.

I'm guessing they are going to make all 6 games under Monolith since they don't have Square telling them they can't anymore. Whether they remake episode 5/xenogears when they get to that point remains to be seen. I hope they do, personally ^_^

Hope this clears it up a bit

Tehe.. stopped in to pre-order at EB the other day. They love to see me, because I'm about the only unattached female that comes in, and I don't buy shit like 'Mary Kate and Aslhey's big adventure in a brothel.'

mmn.. Xenoart.. *__________________* I want to see Kos-Mos kick ass with those big guns! Curse you Recca for showing me that DVD trailer at Neko.
