Right smack dab on the front page is a bonus offer if you buy the game from Wal-Mart:
500 Skill Points and Increased Captain Stats!
No details on Wal-Mart's site, but the very notion that Wal-Mart customers are getting such an obvious boost in the game seems a little shady to me. I'm remembering all those assurances that players wouldn't be able to buy anything in the Cryptic Store that would affect gameplay. Apparently, that doesn't apply to buying the game from specific retailers.
