Suggestions for the Collector's DVD

So we're already in 2010 and just can't wait for that promised Tales of Monkey Island Collector's DVD.

I've been thinking about what would it have and probably some people are still holding their fingers back on that checkout button, so I compiled a little list of things I'd like to see on the upcoming DVD (having in mind low production costs and package size).

[LIST]
[*]Steve Purcell's art as the cover
Just making sure it's going to be the official cover. That or a classic cover art like the previous MI games. Sorry Telltale but that first render of Guybrush still looks awful, the shading makes him look horribly weird.
[*]Higher quality speech
Some lines of dialog would benefit from less compression.
[*]Higher quality textures
Same here, there were times that the textures seemed way to pixelated and blurry.
[*]Official Soundtrack (either digital or on a CD)
Please yes! I won't lie, I've used a tool to extract some music out of Tales of MI and I can't stop listening to them. So obviously, I'd love actual, official, longer versions of tunes like swordfight.ogg. ;)
[*]Official Artwork (digital format)
Since asking for a artbook would be too much, I'd love to have high resolution artwork in the DVD. Please? Pretty please? Please pretty please with sugar on top?
[*]And finally (and wishfully)... Steve Purcell's Poster
Because I'm a bit baffled that the unsigned posters costs nearly as much as two episodes together... No offense to Steve Purcell's work, it's a piece of art, but some people have to pay extra to have for such a small poster shipped. :( (my room's walls are filled with movie size posters)

Newly added:

[*]The official deck of tarot cards (added by Indrid Cold)


[*]Commentaries, making of and behind the scenes videos (added by Irishmile)


[*]Outtake reel (added by Scrawffler)


[*]Every episode of I Wonder What Happens (added by pluizig)
[/LIST]

So... could the Telltale team please stand up and give us a small peek at what people will get for buying or upgrading to the full season?

And what do you, Monkey Islanders, would like to see in your Collector's DVD? Have in mind that Telltale's probably not going to ship anything more than a DVD within a plastic case, but you can be extravagant if you wish. :P

  • I ask for subtitles on all the DVD extras.
    My 2 cents.

  • Here's the blog post about the pre-order deal.

    Notice the asterisk text at the bottom:

    [quote]Season customers who order after July 7 will still be eligible for the DVD, but only pre-order customers will receive the limited edition cover. Shipping will be charged when you come back to order the Collector's DVD.[/quote]

    Great, there had to be misinformation involved. Steve Purcell says that he worked on the art for the DVD's slipcase, which doesn't mean that the DVD's cover needs to be different.

    Basically, the whole deal was always publicized as whoever preordered would get an exclusive slipcase with their Collector's DVD.

    I really hope Telltale avoids sticking non-preordered versions of the DVD with a bad cover. That would really piss some fans. :(

    Yeah, especially those (like myself) Who opted for the wii version to begin with. I got the wii version at launch (half an hour after launch to be exact), and i had already bought and uploaded my points by that time, so it was as close to a pre-order as possible. I know that i won't get the same stuff as the PC Pre-orderers, which i accept, but considering that we payed more than them, we expect at least some quality cover.

  • I think the Cover art was cool for the pre-order but not really enough to make me jump right on it.... I didn't Pre-order... I would much rather buy the signed poster for that art.

  • Ouch... Isn't the different covers between Wii and PC versions due to the different publishers?

  • You know what would be great?

    A Map... one signed by Winslow

  • I'd have preordered if I'd known in time :( I only found out TMI was already ready to be published (ch.1 at least) when I saw the announcement on the Wii Shop.

    The wii version isn't getting a disc release. The other box art is the image displayed for the PC box art, whilst the Blue, at sea version is the limited edition Steven Purcell box art.

  • I wouldn't count a Wii disc out, but I wouldn't count on it either. But if there is one you can count on having to re-buy it if you want it.
