Non shitty picture version.

Not all those prices are correct. One stor had buy two get one free. But I also had a 10$ off card so I got 2 free. Bayonetta was reduced to 12$. Devil Kings is the original name in the US for Sengoku Basara. Minus kirby it was 39$. Kirby I got new.

I love that this is coming out at the end of the month. It's a strain on the wallet (AC3 is out around the same time too), but it's still earlier than I was expecting, which is nothing but a good thing.

Preorder. Edited my posts before I saw your posts.
Very nice looking LE. Simple but classy.
I still remember the day I originally bought ZOE2, and I'll always remember being surprised as hell the first time I played the original game.
This is like the perfect HD collection for me. Absolutely can't wait to play it.

^I still remember the first time I saw one of the first trailers of ZOE 2.
I memorized every line.
Went to school the next time, after seeing the trailer over and over again, and only used words and phrases of the trailer to communicate all day long, even with teachers.

:lol:
That's special.

The first day I bought ZOE2 (which was the very day it came out) I brought it to a friend's house to play it before going to the movies later on. A few other guys were there, and one of them couldn't help but laugh every single time someone said the name "Dingo". And just because he was laughing like that, the rest of us slowly started doing the same thing. Eventually everyone in the room was laughing maniacally while I played the game (myself included) and the name "Dingo" kept being mentioned, and we must have gone on like that for almost an hour.
You'd never see another roomful of people laughing so hard while playing a game unless they were drunk or high, which none of us were. We were just laughing because someone else was.
And it was all over the name "Dingo" for some reason.

Odd memory, but good nostalgia nonetheless. I still smirk a little at the mention of Dingo because of that. :lol:

Ugh... for some reason that ZOE collection is really tempting, never played the first games, but after watching this trailer for it how good is the story in these? What kind of story is it, the game play looks like it would be addicting as hell it just seems like it would be right up my alley considering I love mech anime like gundam and eva and raxephon etc etc etc.

The story is good, although many of the important background details are essentially missing from the games themselves, and require a little bit of research to fully understand them.
Regardless of stuff like that, if you care to invest some time in getting into it all, the ZOE universe is pretty well-thought-out. Along with the two main games, there's also a really story-intensive strategy title on GBA called Fist of Mars (which I still haven't played through yet; maybe I will when I hit my inevitable ZOE mood when the HD versions come out), an anime OVA called Idolo, and a full-length tv series called Dolores. I've seen Idolo and the first several episodes of Dolores, and it's actually pretty good (and canon to the games' story, if I remember correctly), though it deals with a whole different cast of characters than the the game does. Thinking about the fact that I haven't seen it inspired me to go order the complete collection just now.
So there's a lot of background stuff to get into.
The games themselves have pretty good stories overall, though some elements I could do without (as much as I want to like him, Leo Stenbuck, the protagonist from the first game, is one of the whiniest main characters in videogame history). They roll along at a quick pace like a good, action-packed anime series or movie. Very Gundam-ish in tone, but with much flashier designs and action.
Both games are really short though. Last I played them, it was about 4-6 hours for each one. So they're best played back-to-back as one big experience. The gameplay is about as fun as can be though.
Easily among my favorite videogame series ever.
