Good morning VGA readers. Today’s post is a little special as there are some really nice goodies for you collectors out there like a signed Earthbound game(famicom). But I will begin by discussing the benefits of computer/gaming glasses. I recently had serious symptoms of what could be related to excessive computer use. Let me explain…
For about 4 weeks I had a massive headache, equilibrium issues(balance), and huge pain behind my eyes which made me fatigue and only want to lay down and not do anything. I am very much receptive to pain but this was something new I never felt, it was extremely painful from morning to night, even when I closed my eyes, even if I got good sleep. So researching on google for medical issues is like shooting yourself in the foot, you can find so much stuff that isn’t related. I went to several doctors and they couldn’t find anything. Then I realized after doing some research that being on a computer for 10+ hrs a day can definitely do some damage. That added with stress is what happened. So now I actually plan my time around a computer. But now I found a solution to my problem, and everyone elses problem.
If you wake up in the morning with a massive headache and eye pain after a long day of gaming or computer use, well think about getting computer glasses. Not reading glasses, glasses specifically designed for long hours in front of a computer or a TV. There are companies that produce these kinds of glasses for an affordable price, but one company imparticular caught my eye. That is GUNNAR Digital Performance Eye Wear. More specifically they actually have designed limited edition Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 glasses. It is estimated that 70% of the American population suffer from CVS which is Computer Vision Syndrome. I think personally that anyone who stays in front of a computer or TV for a long period will pretty much get a headache or eye pain, it’s a no brainer. We’re already in the digital age and more time is spent on computers and screens then ever before. You could use eye drops, walk away from a screen every hour for 20 minutes, or get a good pain of computer glasses at GUNNAR which is a technical eyewear solution that protects, enhances, and optimizes visual performance for anyone who spends long hours viewing computers or digital screens. GUNNAR Advanced Computer Eyewear helps minimize eye fatigue and visual stress, while improving contrast, comfort, and focus for anyone who spends long hours viewing digital screens. I am going to get a pair, and I think every gamer should have this next to his controller… will you get a pair?
Other Video Game Auctions:
–Extremely RARE Mother 1+2 Set Signed by Shigesato Itoi – The Creator of EarthBound signed this famicom game in 2003. This auction was recently on YAJ(hehe yes I see everything my friends), and I won’t say how much the seller actually won it for because I don’t think it’s fair to do that, but it is clearly for reselling purposes which is fine. I use to think it’s an evil thing but that’s how business works. A lucky fan will win this for his/her awesome collection. It’s the real deal so don’t miss out on a gem.
– Dead Space Ultra Limited Edition (Xbox 360) – There are apparently 1000 copies for the PS made of this. It is pretty rare indeed and easily sells over $800, in fact some copies have sold for $1500+. This one is mint and unopened.
– Final Fantasy III (JP) signed by Nobuo Uematsu – All proceeds go to charity. From closer observations and comparisons I can say this is a legit Uematsu signature. The seller does have some references but compare them yourself and you can see it is legit. Low starting bid I might even give this one a shot.
– Call of Duty Black Ops Signed Poster – I don’t know if this is a print or an original hand signing. The seller says he/she interviewed a programmer and received this poster. It would be logical to say it’s signed because what programmer would give a printed signed poster? It’s like having an interview with the president and receiving a letter with his signature but printed… doesn’t make sense but you never know, better to ask the seller.
– Castlevania Koji Igarashi Autographed Dracula X – A REALLY nice signed Koji Igarashi paper. It’s on a Dracula X fact sheet, something that will have value over time. The auction is very low.

- The Collectors Edition game for PS3 (sealed)

– Videopac G7000 Boxed + 27 Games + Game Case – Submitted by VGA friend Hendrik (Thanks!), this is the Magnavox Odyssey² but in Europe it was called the Videopac G7000 and it’s boxed and in great shape and comes with 27 games. A console collector should not miss this!
