Nintendo World Hyrule Historia Launch Video & Collector’s Edition Hands-On
Just yesterday we put up our gallery of the Hyrule Historia launch at the NYC Nintendo World Store, along with a few quick shots of the actual book. Today we’ve got video footage of both! As you can see waiting outside for hours while snowing in Manhattan isn’t as fun as it sounds. Once the time came we were then ushered upstairs where the whole floor was reserved for the release party. Dungeon music never seemed so inviting!

Hyrule Historia Launch Gallery
On friday we took the long grueling trip from New Jersey to New York just to get our hands on the Limited Edition of Hyrule Histora. The book that made waves last year during The Legend of Zelda’s 25th Anniversary. Initially released in Japan, Dark Horse took the reins and decided to release it here due to overwhelming demand. Months after pre-orders were made available Dark Horse let it be known they had a Limited Edition in the works as well. This edition would have a faux-leather cover, gold leafing on the edge of the pages, and be limited to only 4,000 copies. The preorders on Amazon sold out immediately leaving only one other option for a chance at this extremely rare book. The Nintendo World Launch event in New York City.

We all have those people in our lives. The ones that are defined by more than just the word “gamer”. They do other things in addition to further strengthen their growing niche. If so, these following apps will probably fall into their category.
As with our last post, we’ll be updating this as time goes on. When we find worthy apps we’ll be sure to put them right here for you. Got one you think deserves to be here? Contact us with it and we’ll let you know!

There’s no question that we are improving margins in [the pre-owned] business. We still see growth in the pre-owned business for 2012. We also have seen gross profit growth in this quarter and we’ll see it in other quarters. We don’t believe that the pre-owned business is in a long-term decline.

Borderlands 2 Collector’s And Ultimate Editions Unveiled

Oh mama. Oh god. Oh please take all my money!

Now that I’ve secured my copy of the ultimate edition of Borderlands 2, I’m happy to tell you guys all about these things of beauty. The $99 Collector’s Edition is your typical pack in swag. Stickers, an art book, a cloth map, DLC, and a pretty sweet bobble-head of Marcus Kincaid.

But the Ultimate Edition is where my heart belongs. For $149 it includes the following:

  • Borderlands 2 Game
  • Replica Borderlands Loot Chest
  • Authentic Marcus Kincaid Bobblehead
  • Numbered Certificate of Authenticity
  • Steelbook Case
  • Creatures of Pandora Wide Format ID Chart
  • 4 Lithograph Postcards
  • Field Notes from Sir Hammerlock
  • Comic Book Download
  • 4 Exclusive Stickers
  • Cloth Map
  • Plus Bonus Digital Content

The loot case is what makes it worthwhile. I’m a sucker for fancy boxes! While all this is well and good, there’s even more of a bonus if you pre-order either one of these. Doing that will net you access to the “Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which includes more digital goodies and free access to the Mechromancer playable character once she’s released.”

It looks like 2K is really putting a lot behind this game and for good reason. Borderlands 2 is set for release on September 18th.
