Video Games are more consistent at rewarding us for the choices we make, and they also provide a diversity of choice that the real world doesn’t. Gamers can go places and enter into situations that are closed off to them in real life. But is there anything more to offer but playing video games?
Today I would like to answer a question that I receive a lot and that’s about the auctions ending. Basically we post auctions that are ending within 24 hours, most likely less than that. The reason is because most of the auctions that you read about should be available to buy right away or ending the same day. If you need to add some auctions to your watchlist then most likely you will forget about bidding on them (as we do here at VGA). So the chances of you missing out on auctions are quite slim, hence the reason we post auctions that end the same day. Todays auctions are actually ending sooner!
Nintendo Switch’s big day is around the corner, March 3rd. As many of my followers are aware, when a new generation console is released I do whatever it takes to get my hands on 3 orders. My first to consoles are at release date. I open and play with one and the other remains boxed and sealed never to be opened, well unless my kids decide to open it one day when I am no longer around. The 3rd purchase comes when the second generation is released. So typically, 8-14 months after the original was released.
With the new Halo Wars 2 coming out on February 21st, many collectors will be getting the Halo fever again and looking to buy some collectibles during this time. Well I think this one auction takes the cake for highly collectible. Signed by all the team members for Halo, here’s what the auctions description says:
Mortal Kombat is a fighting game that holds a special place for all gamers. From the very beginning back in 1992 till today with the newest Mortal Kombat XL game, the franchise continues to live strong. For me, the most memorable Mortal Kombat game was MK II. I have the most memories with it from picking it up on the day of the release, to playing with friends and entering tournaments.It was a pretty cool period for me. However, I’m no huge into fighting games, but MK always stuck out as the leader.
Today’s line-up of auctions are pretty sweet. We have some rare plushes (Banpresto Metal Mario and Coco Mario) as well as a super rare Chrono Trigger Trading Cards Box! I’ve never seen the actual box for the cards anywhere so it’s pretty insane to see them brand new sealed like that. I’ve seen packs sell here and there but not an entire box.
The problem I see with the whole box thing is if you’re actually willing to buy it just to build an entire set, the thing is that you’re not guaranteed to make a complete set. And complete sets of Chrono Trigger trading cards go around $500-$700. So unless you’re an insane Chrono Trigger collector and want to actually say you own a box of unopened packs, better to spend your money elsewhere :).
What is the Nintendo Switch and how does it compare to the previous models and other consoles?
Nintendo has recently held a launch event for their latest console named Nintendo Switch. As you can imagine, people are very excited to see a new console here, but there is also some skepticism here! Every Nintendo console was innovative in its right. The Nintendo 64 was a sheer delight to use, and it brought some revolutionary game ideas, the Wii U provided motion controls that were a lot of fun, and now Nintendo is preparing for something even more interesting.
Hey all! Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and I wish everyone single one of you a Happy New Year! I’ve taken some time off during the Christmas break and some time off in the first week of the New Year but I’m happy to say we’re back in business!
So 2016 has passed by and as always we’ve posted so many auctions it’s hard to mention which ones were the biggest. I do know however that there are less incredibly rare items that I’ve been use to seeing before 2016, heck, even 2015. I mean it’s subjective as what I might find rare; you might not find rare. But for example I don’t think I’ve seen the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time official Famitsu Brother’s Flute. OR a Final Fantasy 7 Music Box. Seems like collectors are hanging onto their most prized possessions. But there will always be new and interesting stuff coming out and with the new year into play, let’ all hope for some goodies to hit ebay and other places for good prices :).
