Bearded Reviews are broadcasted and recorded live! Take a look at each game moment to moment with the good and the bad examined. This of course also means all bloopers and gamer failures will broadcast for the entire world to see as well! Today I took a moment to enjoy and look back at one of the best RPGs ever made... Earthbound. It may cost a lot to get yourself a copy of the game now but it's worth every dollar... guaranteed.

Bully RockStar Contest Exclusive Prize – Cricket Bat and Skate Deck
The coolest auction on eBay right now is this RockStar Contest Prize auction for the game Bully. For those who never played Bully, it's basically Grand Theft Auto but in the form of a High School kid causing havoc (sort to speak). The auction is for the Cricket bat and the skate deck. I've seen the skate deck before, but I can't recall if I ever seen the cricket bat before. The bat is well done, and looks so authentic. No wonder only 5 of these prizes were made because it probably cost quite a bit just to make the ...
The Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap Limited Edition Box Set Sealed and Other Limited Nintendo Items
Plenty of limited and valuable items to look through today. Everything listed is Nintendo related but not all are licensed items. First up is a very limited Minish Cap release!
The Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap Limited Edition Box Set Sealed - Only 300 released and this one is still sealed. The plastic is cut in a couple of places but still very hard to find as it is.
Diamond Trust of London DS Limited Edition - This game was created through Kickstarter success. $55 backers received one of 1000 of these limited edition copies of the game (though only 589 backers are ...

Bearded Review – Maru’s Mission
Bearded Reviews are broadcasted and recorded live! Take a look at each game moment to moment with the good and the bad examined. This of course also means all bloopers and gamer failures will broadcast for the entire world to see as well! Today I played a Game Boy game from my childhood and looked back at what made it stand out for me. It's Maru's Mission and it's one of the strangest side scrollers out there...

Even knowing the answer I’ll get back (or lack of any since it would be rare for this to be part of any collection), do any of you reading here at VGA own a collection of kiosks or know of anyone who does? It just seems like such an awesome thing to have. Sure, fill a long room with arcade cabinets pinball machines if you can but why not a clean and fully functioning kiosk for every console? Damn, that would be awesome. Anyway, just a random thought that came to mind while looking this over…
Nintendo 64 Kiosk - The TV isn’t included which is unfortunate since it looks like it has a dandy Nintendo 64 sticker on the front. Still a very impressive design.
Gears of War 3 Thrashball Cole Limited Bronze Statue - I can expect this statue (which was limited to only 100) to be available on eBay off and on but I’m still a little amazed that there aren’t 100 hardcore Gears of War fans out there that simply must have one of these and will never sell it. Less than 100 people? Really?
My favorite auction here is the Sega Collection (Thanks Jimmy). It`s filled with lotsa goodies including a brand new retro jacket and hat. Pretty decent price and I`ll probably give a shot at this later on. Worth the check:
It seems like when some items are going down in price, others items are going up in price. Take the Wind waker scroll for example. I remember hearing about people offering $3000 for this scroll back in the day! I’ve even see it sell for $2k+ on eBay. Now it seems like the scroll is fetching for less by the year. Now on auction is a Wind Waker scroll at $600. We’ll see if it ends for that amount.
Seller says: “A collector’s item for those who love Nintendo. This item will be delivered to you in the way it was given; inside a plastic wrap. This item was a special promotion to those who were able to play the Nintendo games that were available to demo at e3 2013. I was lucky enough to get one, so for any collector’s out there who really love the ‘little’ brother of the Super Mario Brothers, then this coin is definitely for you!
I personally have no use for it as I need to pay for tuition for college, and from what I hear it’s a demand-able item.”
Hey guys, I just wanted to bring this item to some attention if you haven’t noticed it before or perhaps haven’t heard of this edition of Uncharted 2. This giant and amazing looking box set was never for sale. It was a prize given away to 30 winners that participated in an online promo campaign. I’m not sure if there were other give-aways outside of the 30 I’ve just mentioned but you can be sure the developers have others.
The story behind the 30 prize editions is pretty interesting. Back in mid October of 2009, Sony made an offer to give away 10 of these incredible collector’s items every day for three days. To be eligible for one you needed to play the online demo of Uncharted 2 on one of those days.
The Fortune Hunter Edition on eBay right now is being sold by a known reseller so the cool story behind someone winning this is lost. It must have been pretty awesome for those 30 gamers who won though… Insanity.
Well, E3 is just about over for this year and eBay is filling up with hundreds of promos and limited give-aways. This year had more going on than last year but still didn’t really have the impact previous expos have had. I must admit it pleases my long lost Playstation fanboy self watching Microsoft clench up and go on the defensive about their insane ideas about the future of gaming and their plans to force it to become exactly as they predict. Sorry Microsoft, we the gamers have the money you want… if you piss us off we will go elsewhere.
I could rant all day but many of the auctions below end today and very soon. Act quick if you want to sneak your bid in! Good luck guys
