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 :).
Video games have always been a changing medium. They have never rested on their laurels and instead have been moving forward and evolving continuously. From simple machines that could only play one game, arcades full of the latest hits, to consoles and PCs providing endless fun. Combined with handheld gaming consoles and mobile phones, how we play games has never been the same. Today, you can play something on your phone as you wait for a bus or you can engross yourself and commit hours of time to a complex and challenging console release. What has changed video games the most in recent years is online play and it brings a whole new dimension to the medium.
Sorry folks, no Black Friday deals on eBay for video game related stuff unless you’re buying a console or some NOS games. But I still think the auctions in this post will tickle your fancy! First up is this awesome PONG Clock! Instead of reiterating what the seller wrote, I’ll simply copy and paste the auction description below:
“I’m selling my Pong clock. Designed by Sander Mulders, this is 1 of only 400 Pong clocks he ever produced. These are no longer made as Atari only allowed a very small production run. When these went on sale they sold out in one day. These are extremely rare and don’t show up often on Ebay.
I am the only owner of this clock and have kept it in excellent condition in a smoke free home. It has been displayed for about a year and kept in a box for the remainder of its time. It works flawlessly for both keeping time and for playing pong with it. A short clip of my pong clock at work can be found here: https://youtu.be/_qYFcjryfvM
