It cost me P 1,850 for the PS3 version in Datablitz(Sort of the Gamestop here). I didn't bother with the pre-order since the bonuses included wasn't worth it at all. Just like any other EA game, nothing really goes with a standard copy. Kingdoms of Alamur requires an online pass to have access to a couple of quests in the game. Since my copy is an R3 version(asian), I had to hop over my asian PSN account to redeem the online pass. Once you download the content on your system, you can use any account with the online pass content open to you.
One more thing was also included in the standard copy which is pretty standard, and that's the game manual. Problem is, it's an EA game manual.
most EA games don't really include a physical game manual. All you get is one piece of paper folded twice. The real game manual is included in the disc and can be viewed in the options. Real smooth EA. This isn't the first. Games like F.E.A.R 3 and other EA published games get the same treatment.
I'm three hours in and I can feel the addiction coming. I'm literally surrounded by side quests, crafting, and huge starting area to explore in just the first three hours. I played my first hours on our live channel and will continue to stream Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning when I get the chance.
Another game that should be out now is The Darkness 2. So far, no word of it being out here in the Philippines. If it was an EA game it would have been different, but no it's published by 2k Games. It should be out sometimes this week.
