I can only point to two that I know of, but it seems like we might be seeing a welcome return of the Game Manual!!! 🥳 First, I was pleasantly surprised when I opened Wrath of the Righteous to find the first full game manual I'd seen since the days of the PS3!! Now, all editions of CE will include one!! 👍🏼 This is one trend I hope continues. I always enjoyed reading through the manual before starting to play - for me, it always felt like the first step in my journey with a new game. Hope all is going well for you, Tom!
