    I have to say, about they only thing I regret about shaving my head is missing out on the professional shampooing when you go for a cut.

    This concept class is turning out to be the most stifling, horrible class. Christ.

    Hopefully I can push myself through it, creating the most mediocre shit, without hating myself and being extremely embarrassed.

    Hair grows back, it's not gonna kill you if you get a bad haircut, duderino. I'm actually considering shaving chunks of my head for fun, maybe doing something mohawky.


    Dmac go to a haircut place and request just a shampoo do it

    I'd agree save for the fact that I tend to be incredibly self conscious around people I don't know (i.e. everyone in my classes and the new pledges of the service group I'm in. I'd like to atleast make a nice impression on people before I show up with a hack job <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    the only thing I hate about this job is that there's a body shop down the street where they're always testing dirt bikes and race cars.

    Not that I mind the noise; I'm just jealous.

    I'm a terrible person and didn't do my resolution stuff for last week. And I haven't worked on my actual resolutions at all.

    Just got back from preordering the big collector's box set of Bioshock 2 on 360. It's not even the in-game stuff that makes me shell out the extra cash; instead, I am drooling over that 160-page concept art book that comes in the box.

    I'm a total sucker for the latest trend of special-edition hardcover player's guides and art books. Even if I don't have the game, I'll still get it if there's conceptual artwork hoarding to be had.

    You get an art book with it? I don't even have a working game system and now I'm compelled to pre-order that. How much money do I have to throw at the cashier?

    Oh crap, it comes with an art book? I am so preordering this now.

    also pierce: usually you get the art book when you buy the game. It's to cut down on people putting in their five dollar preorder and then cancelling it once they get what they want.

    Although you can get a lot of free stuff by getting friendly with the gamestop guys. I got the Legendary art book when I asked about the Dead Space art book (which is where I found out that they usually give out the art book when you've bought the game)

    Speaking of artbooks, my final one just came in the mail!

    Dreamworks knows how to make a freakin' artbook, holy crap. They're excellent.

    Which one? I got the kung fu panda one.

    Sony does not know how to make an artbook. The open season one was full of crap that ripped and fell out.

    Metalborne: Do they sound like they're jumping over 5 CARS?

    It's like $100 for the whole freakin' thing, but really the game itself is $60 so for an art book and other stuff it's pretty worth it to me. I was told that the hardcover player's guide may come bundled with the art book as well, and that'll only be like $35 at most.

    So far I have hardcover guides/art books for the last three Zeldas, Assassin's Creed 1 & 2, Soul Calibur 4, Batman Arkham Asylum, Mario, Metroid, Resident Evil... damn, I have bought a lot.

    I'm still pissed I missed out on the Dead Space art book when it was making its rounds. I keep meaning to check eBay for a copy of it but just haven't got around to it yet.

    Edit: Details on the Bioshock 2 Limited Edition, a little ways down the page. 164-page hardcover artbook. Booyah. Oh crap, I also forgot that it comes with a vinyl LP of the Bioshock 2 soundtrack. That's another reason to get it.

    They are super nice. They have gold leaf pages and come with a pretty snazzy cloth map of the overworld for each game, with other cool bits like leather bookmarks and whatnot. The Phantom Hourglass one even includes the opening cinematic of the game as a printed mini-comic.

    The only artbook I own I got with the collectors edition of Spore. Such a disappointing game...

    On the plus side I won an artbook for Darksiders a little while ago so that's pretty cool.

    EDIT: I lie, I've just remembered I also have a copy of Kidography which I got extremely cheaply a while back.

    I got that one, and Shrek (which covers all three films). They're really excellent. I also got Monster House from Sony, which seems to be laid out (with little extra hangy-things) similarly to Shrek....but the Shrek one seems better, overall. I think it has more material in it.

    I wonder if they made one. That game looked extensive in it's development.

    Honestly? I don't know.

    I've almost bought the strategy guide a couple times just to get some art out of that, though.

    Hell, I bought the Disgaea strategy guide just for the art.

    I have this! A friend broke up with a chick with a huge Final Fantasy artbook collection. And gave me all her shit. So it exists. Also Kusanagi artbooks often put the backgrounds they did for the Final Fantasy series in their background compilation artbooks.

    Oh man I love the Kungfu Panda artbook so many great characters not used like Elephant Ninjas.

    Edit: L.E.O.: Blood, Vampire Hunter D, idk there are a lot of grimdark animus. I recently got done with Jin-Roh, Escaflowne the Movie, Noein, Last Exile and still watching Wakfu subs in the last two months.

    All. Actually he just gave them too me since I'm a huge artbook collector I have like 50+ books not counting my artlearning books. So people just keep giving whatever they can to me because I appreciate them and have paid up to close to 100 dollars for one book. But it was a James Jean Process Recess 2 at the time. There like what 200-300 now?
