…Grand Theft Auto is special?

Grand Theft Auto

Usually around the third or fourth iteration of a popular game, the designers decide that there are enough fans to warrant a special collector’s edition.

Though collector’s editions usually filled with a bunch of stuff that no one needs, they’re gobbled up by hard-core fans that want to raise their 1337 level by a few points at the next gaming get-together.

Apparently Grand Theft Auto has reached that point, because with the release of GTAIV coming up, they’ve announced a pre-orderable special edition that comes with a metal safety deposit box, special packaging, an art book with never-before-seen production artwork, a soundtrack CD filled with exclusive material, a Rockstar keychain, and a duffel bag to hold it all. Plus, order through Amazon, and you’ll even get a Liberty City license plate to round out the collection!

Chewing Gum

Chewing gum fans rejoice!

New York Magazine has teamed up with WD-50 to chew through 132 different kinds of gum to determine which bubblegum, fruit and mint flavored gum is the best, based on mouthfeel, bulk, flavor intensity, and “the general pleasure of the squish-squish sensation going on between our teeth”.

…Baseball tickets are tricky?

Baseball Seats

As baseball season begins, it’s once again time to break out your negotiation skills if you want to get into a game, and you don’t want to sit in the nosebleeds. To help your quest, Consumerist sat down with a former season/group ticket representative, and came up with a list of ten tricks (and one bonus trick) to score a seat. With tips like “Buy odd numbers of tickets” and “Go alone, sit near the dugout”, these might not be good for the family outing, but for the die hard fan who just wants to watch his team play from as good of a location as possible, they’re indispensable bits of knowledge to keep in mind. Game on.

…New Balance is making comic book 480s?

New Balance 480 Comic

New Balance is making a shoe for the comic book fan (a surprisingly untapped market). Their 480 Comic will be a limited edition of the regular 480, and will feature black and white comic artwork with red detailing. Inspired by the current revival of the movie super hero, these kicks might not give you any super powers, but they will help you chase down crime on the mean city streets if that’s what you decide to do with your spare time. Pow.
