The Fable II Collector's Edition will be missing some stuff. The swish box, some cards, and a neat little Hobbe figure. The box and the figure, sadly, there's nothing that can be done for them. They're gone. But the cards, they live on, Lionhead telling us that they'll be made available as downloadable pdf files so you can print them off. They won't look as good as they would have coming from a professional printer, but then, poor quality versions are normally better than no version at all.
Oh goody, printed cards from a crappy printer with dying cartridges that we have to cut out ourselves. Not a ton of effort, I suppose, unless you need more ink.
Is it seriously that hard to make a couple of paper or cardboard cutouts professionally and duplicate the hell out of them? >_>
Whatever, not getting the CE anyways. Not even pre-ordering. Don't care without the good stuff they took out.
