I bought the OST just for the sake of collection lol. There's a crack on the jewel case but I personally don't care. It's new, it's still sealed, and it'll keep that way ;-)
I already knew the art work book from Mana's post on the forum, but it still blows me away when it arrives. The printing, the paper, the hard cover, everything is just... beautiful. It's available on Amazon.co.jp and it only costs 3400yen w/o tax (around 30$ I believe).
Arsenical: i know that some countries and states actually care about rating and ask for an ID before selling you physical copies but thats not my case, here you can see 12 year old kids buying call of duty or GTA and nobody says a word about it.

Scars Unseen: Which is hilarious, because the entire purpose of the ESRB is to prove that the industry can regulate itself so that they avoid actual regulation.

ghaleon: Not really IMO. I mean lot watched rated R movies when I was a kid. Bear in mind back when I was a kid they would give R rated movies to ones with violence rather than just sex. Like the Terminator, Robocop, etc

Scars Unseen: No, that's literally the reason the ESRB exists. There was a lot of talk in the 90s about regulating video game violence, and a coalition of publishers including Nintendo, Sega, EA and Acclaim got together and created the ESRB to prevent it from happening

ghaleon: I thought you were saying it was hilarious that arsen see's 12 year olds buying certain rated games, not that they are asking for ID

ikai: Video games is technically a form of art, as well as movies. In free and democratic societies, art should never be conscripted, press should never be yellow and both should never be censored.

Scars Unseen: Freedom is never absolute and never should be. Pornography is also technically a form of art, yet we've seen fit not to allow it when children are involved. There's always a balance needed, and art doesn't get exempted from that.

ikai: "He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither"... Alas. Besides, the more you try to protect yourself from something, the more said something, happens in your domain. Exactly how the burglars thrived, right after the invention of locks...

Scars Unseen: Quotes aren't absolute either. And the second part is kind of bullshit. We didn't suddenly see an increase in pollution when we passed laws restricting industrial corporations' ability to pollute.

Scars Unseen: The modern take on libertarianism has about the same relationship with reality as Flat Earthers.

ikai: I am not a "Libertarian"... But i want me art uncensored. Censor had always been a practice of totalitarian and inhumane regimes, such as communism and nazism. Democracy is threatened to be devoured from within, by adopting the very same practices...

Scuttlest: It's a little forum game about clicking on those cracks to collect wall macs. We even have a leaderboard for the feature. I used to be pretty high on it, but then my visiting here got a lot more infrequent and I slid down the list.

Jowy Avilon: Yeah, I thought the "crack" was just a website design feature/easter egg. Wasn't till I accidentally clicked it trying to click a link I got hit with the Wall Mac lol.
