Tempting, but just not worth it to me.  I have no use for swag, and I can usually trade/buy those bonus DLC codes from people on CAG.

Official Box Art:

For a game as unique as this promises to be, the cover art / pose feels a bit generic...I would have almost preferred it without the character stamp in favor of just the background and logo...



Not to call Uncharted "Generic", but the art/pose feels more in line with a "blockbuster popcorn action" game than what I'd expect from Irrational...

Bioshock Infinite Pushed back to March 26:

Quote from Ken Levine:

Quote
"When Rod Fergusson came on board we looked at the game. He was there for about a month and he said, 'look, I've been looking at the schedule and looking at the game and frankly you could really benefit from another three or four more weeks for polish and bug fixing.'
 
"We talked about it. I knew I'd probably get beat up in the press a little bit about it. But at the end of the day, if it's going to make a better game we're going to do it.
 
"So the new date is March 26. That's my bad news."

Work on the game is now down to final polish and bugfixing. In order to give the team a few more weeks of this polish, the release date of BioShock Infinite is March 26th.
 
We know that this is going to ruffle some feathers. But we're willing to take the heat to make sure that BioShock Infinite is 100% the game our fans deserve.

I'm willing to wait longer for a better game.

Ken, you have my permission.   ;)
