Looks like one of our prayers was answered today. :)
Anyone know what extra the Gold Edition brings to standard U8?
The Gold Edition includes the speech pack and all the bug fixes that were done on the game. Among the bug fixes are some changes to the game such as taking away the moving platforms and taking some of the brutality out of some of the arcade game features of the game. There is no extra content, though, because the add-on The Lost Vale was scrapped.
So wait, the only redeeming quality of U8 was removed? Well that figures.
I remember playing through U8 when it was released and other than some terrain glitches I ran through the game without any game breaking issues.
The reason I liked the game was because of its difficulty and the platform puzzles which were not tough at all.
Oh well, won’t be buying this version and shame about the Lost Vale. I never even knew about a U8 expansion. I’d buy U8 again just for that, would be nice to have played through what ending of U8 was really all about.
And definitely not purchasing U9, that game is too bugged. The beginning of the game is actually quite fun and relatively bug free, but get about half way through and forget about it, heh.
