Today’s auction post has a line up of vintage video game auctions. We got a bunch of Mario, Sonic and even Pac-Man gems! The auction that I got my eye on is the Sonic 25th Party at the House of Blues Comic Con auction. Plenty of goodies and here’s the full description from the auction:

With all this talk about Pokemon Go, I wanted to do a quick search and see what’s trending on ebay with the keywords “Pokemon Go”. Seems like the only item associated with the Pokemon Go App is this new watch accessory you can buy. Taken from the auctions description:
“The Pokémon GO Plus accessory can be used with any compatible smart phone that has the Pokémon GO application installed. After the Pokémon GO Plus is paired via Bluetooth LE and a brief setup process is completed, players can encounter and catch Pokémon like never before. When the smart phone with Pokémon Go and the paired Pokémon GO Plus accessory are within range of each other, both will begin to vibrate when a Pokémon is close by. With the convenience of not having to look at your smart phone, simply press the button on the Pokémon GO Plus to attempt to catch a Pokémon while you are out and about.
Pokémon GO users will also encounter set locations called PokéStops, where you can collect items like Poké Balls, Berries and even Pokémon Eggs. Pokémon GO Plus is an easy and convenient way to collect Pokémon and items without having to look at your smart phone.
Accessory for the Pokemon GO application provides an easy and convenient way to catch Pokemon and collect items Catch Pokemon in the wild with a simple click of a button Collect Poke Balls, Berries, Pokemon Eggs and other items at set PokeStop locations without having to look at your smart phone”
So you’re probably thinking what’s the point of this watch when you’re playing the game on your mobile device? Well it’s pretty much for convenience. You can pretty much do everything on the phone through this watch. So instead of carry the phone with you, just flip the Pokemon Go watch cover and you’re set.
If you’re into old school RPG games then you might want to stop by seller sonkirihayameni ebay store. The seller always has some cool collectibles I’ve never seen before and they are always priced reasonably well compared to US sellers. I’ve made some of my best purchases from sonkirihayameni so definitely want to add them to your favorite sellers list if you’re a big RPG gamer.
With that said, the seller put up a rare Legend of Mana photo from from the good ol’ Squaresoft days. Remember those days when RPG games were amazing? Well if you’re still reading I have some good news. A new company called Tokyo RPG Factory is on a mission, to bring back RPG games like they were in the 90’s. They are coming out which I believe is their first game in a “Chrono Trigger” style game so you might want to check that out.
Anyhow, back to the Legend of Mana frame. Not sure about the details but perhaps it was a promo item or something you could have bought on an online store in JP. Pretty cool item and it’s brand new. Price is not bad at all ($79). Buyer takes it all!
Thought this nice little collectible deserved it’s own post!
Surprisingly enough, the seller didn’t write down much in the description area for this piece despite the attention it’s getting (current bid at $355 with less than 24 hours left). This is all the seller wrote:
“This highly collectible and rare Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Clock Tower statue measures about 9.75″ tall and features a working clock. It is in new, never used condition and still in its original packaging. Shipping & handling to the lower 48 U.S. States is free.”
Although I wasn’t able to find much info on the piece, I know we did feature a similar auction here, where the item was basically a gift given to developers. But the older auction had the original box that comes with Big Ben. This one above doesn’t so I wonder why that’s the case. Anyhow, it’s a highly collectible item and if you’re into the Assassin’s Creed franchise then I don’t know what your waiting for? Bid already! 🙂
When it comes to gaming there is a new way that might be eclipsing the traditional method of going on your console. Of course, that is gaming on our smartphones. As more games are accessible, including a range of free gaming apps that we can download, we are turning to our phone to give us the gaming entertainment that we need. There are a wide range of options available and the obvious benefits of gaming on your smartphone is that you can do it from wherever you want, on the move, in the house. No problem.
As mentioned, there are many free apps that you can download that will provide you with hours of gaming fun, however, whilst some other games will cost, they are often relatively cheap and can also provide you with great entertainment. The beauty is there are a range of games that will appeal to so many different people. One popular mobile game this year is ‘twofold’ which will test the gamers brain and provide a more calculated and testing game than some of the alternatives out there. But if that’s not your thing, then you can’t go wrong with buying the latest Grand Theft Auto games that are available, allowing you to put fear into the streets. Again, this highlights the wide mix available which gives you great freedom when it comes to making a choice.
Online casino games are another popular method of gaming for people on their phones and it is easy to see why. Lucky Nugget Casino are now online and they offer a wide range of games that will appeal to gamers. From casino classics such as roulette and blackjack they also offer a range of online slots that are themed, such as Jurassic Park. The reason the casino games, and mobile games in general, are growing in popularity has other factors as well as the portability aspect. The graphics and gameplay has improved drastically over recent years, something that hasn’t always been the case with mobile gaming before. Now, when you load up your online casino game you feel as though you are at an actual casino, from the sounds, to the way the cards are dealt and the images, everything has improved so much which in turn has increased the popularity. That goes for all game, and the importance cannot be underestimated on some of the action games, where the graphics and gameplay is an integral part to attracting a fan base.
Overall, mobile gaming is here to stay. At the click of a few buttons you can have any type of game you want ready to download, often free of charge, and as we spend more time with our smartphone in our hand than ever before it was inevitable that companies would focus on improving their mobile gaming. Now that they have, the gamers are reaping the benefits as it gives you the option of playing from wherever you like.
I wonder how the Zelda 2 Fruit Snacks look like now if their from 1989 :):
“Up for sale is an incredibly hard-to-find piece of Nintendo history, Legend of Zelda 2: Adventure of Link Fruit Snacks box and pouch from 1989.
Only a handful of these have ever come up for sale on public auction, the last being nearly half a decade ago. Given the incredible increase in the interest in Zelda and NES collecting in general, this may be your best (and possibly only) chance to ever get your hands on one of these really cool pieces of history.
Condition is as pictured. The box is in better condition than any I’ve seen elsewhere. There is a good possibility that this is in the best condition of any surviving specimen of this incredibly cool item.”
Normally when I do posts on Saturday’s I’m able to stumble upon a lot of crazy auctions ending soon, but today seems to be the exception. Not able to find anything incredibly rare, but of course rarity is highly subjective and in the eye of the beholder. So with that said, I’ve put together a bunch of auctions worthy of taking a look. One particular item (and CHEAP might I add) is this cool Dragon Quest II “Theater” soundtrack. Now It’s a Japanese item so perhaps “theater” just means soundtrack for home or something like that. But this particular item includes a 48-page illustrated booklet which is pretty neat. Die-hard DQ fans should jump on this soundtrack. Only $17!!!
Got a last submission for a bunch of totally rare game auctions! Some items are a little pricey, but the Nintendo 64 E3 2000 Press Kit is something I’ve never seen before and it’s brand new. Here’s the description from the seller:
