Suggestions for the Collector's DVD

tmicover.jpgMock-up cover. Sexy isn't it?

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)
[/LIST]

Newly added:
[LIST]
[*]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

  • @Kamikaze_Tutor said: 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. :(

    The slipcase will go over whatever design the standard DVD case has. Why would anyone care about a slipcase that has the exact same art as what's underneath it?

    The Purcell art only goes to pre-orders. Everyone else will get whatever the standard art is.

    And, the pre-order deal was to get exclusive Purcell art. The fact that it's on a slipcase is irrelevant.

    Why would you care that only the pre-orders get the exclusive art? You pre-ordered? Is that it? Good for you.

    Hey, I was just trying to set you straight about who gets what art. You don't have to be a jerk about it.

    But, whatever, I'm done.

    Sorry dude, I never meant to sound like a jerk. Got that same feeling from you. :\

    Just saying that there was a bit of misinformation about that, and that Telltales would be giving a disservice to the Collector's DVD by giving it a bad cover. :(

    Just because it won't be the same cover doesn't mean it will be a bad cover.
    But think about it. If they say "preorder and you'll get Purcell's cover" and then they give it to everyone, some people who preordered might feel cheated.
    I wouldn't, because I still got a free episode out of it, but I can understand why some people might.
    If it was one of the preordering bonuses, it's just not possible to make it something everyone gets.

    Now, I don't know if the bonus is a slipcase or cover art. But if it's a different cover art, I'm sure the regular edition will look good too.

    Nah.... The only difference between the two "editions" is that the
    Regular Edition's has a great cover while the other cover is just awesome

  • @Kamikaze_Tutor said: On "The Deal" page:

    disc-copy.png

    Which is montage of the first Guybrush, Elaine and LeChuck renders with this background.

    The shading on every character just screams "beta renders". :\

    That's temp art, so... don't worry about it!

    Arrrrrr, the "preorder-advantage-slipcover-thingie" makes absolutely no sense, when both edition would have the same cover anyway.

    Yes, i pre-ordered. :-D

    The special pre-order edition will have a different cover.

  • Well, didn't pre-order because I bought the season after it's done (same with both Sam & Max seasons). As long as the cover isn't bad, I'll be good :D.

    Features desired:
    * One long game (10% likely, 90% unlikely)
    * Concept art (pretty likely)
    * The LeSinge "Thriller" dance in the Crossroads someone suggested :p.
    * Regular SOMI for free, with an advert for the Special Edition?
    * dev-commentary (what they talk over is up to them, could be cutscene's like the S&M dvd's)
