Flash - a-ah - saviour of the universe
Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Flash - a-ah - he's a miracle
Flash - a-ah - king of the impossible

He's for everyone of us
Stand for everyone of us
He'll save with a mighty hand
Every man every woman
Every child - with a mighty flash

Flash - a-ah
Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us

Just a man
With a man's courage
He knows nothing but a man
But he can never fail
No one but the pure in heart
May find the golden grail
Oh oh - oh oh

So you feel like you ain't nobody
Always needed to be somebody
Put your feet on the ground
Put your hand on your heart
Lift your head to the stars
And the world's for your taking
All you got to do is save the world

So you feel like it's end of story
Find it all pretty satisfactory
Well I tell you my friend
This might seem like the end
But the continuation is
Yours for the making
Yes you're a hero
Ooh yeah

Flash - a-ah
He's for everyone of us
Stand for everyone of us
He'll save with a mighty hand (he'll save with a mighty hand)
He'll save with a mighty hand (he'll save with a mighty hand)
He'll save with a mighty hand (he'll save us)
Every man every woman every child
With a mighty
Flash a-ah

I am a collector. Let me be frank about that. When a game is being released that I have a serious interest in that happens to come with some cool swag, I have no qualms about shelling out a few extra zorkmids. Been doing it all my life. Septerra Core? I have the promo tarot cards. Might & Magic 6? I won a five foot long lithograph of the cover art in a contest included only in the special edition. It adorns my walls to this day.

Bethesda is no stranger to leeching the extra money from my pockets, as the Morrowind and Oblivion SEs attest. I would've gone in for the special CompUSA Daggerfall box if I had been aware of it. That's what makes this such a hard moment for me.

I sit at the Amazon.com checkout, staring.

$60 for a special edition is well within my limits. $70? Painful, but you can entice me into it. $80 is a realm I have yet to broach. $120? I... I just don't know...

Even though I'm more financially stable than I've been in a long while and this is jam packed full of goodies, it's so hard for me to mentally justify this much money. I don't even have a system capable of playing the damn game right now. The last generation of PC games has limped across my seven year old Dell's screen in FPS totals of ones and twos.

Eventually, I'll be able to play Fallout 3. This much I know. It seems that every PC gaming generation is spent by me amassing a horde of titles to finally play through once I've upgraded to a system that can run them at a decent clip. But for now, it mocks me.

The previews, glowing like rad scorpions in the dunes, have already sold me on the game. But even as a fan of the series, can I in good conscience spend this much? Am I doomed to being a buyer of the "Standard Edition"?
