RECORD STORE DAY GETS GEEKY WITH SCOTT PILGRIM AND GHOSTBUSTERS

Record Store Day is April 19th and the closer we get, the more info on exclusive releases trickles out. Sure, there’s plenty of cool stuff from all your favorite obscure indie bands or whatever (like a 5 LP set of LCD Soundsystem’s last show!), but what’s REALLY awesome is the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game soundtrack featuring sexy tunes from Anamanaguchi. If that’s not enough awesomesauce to pour down your pants, there’s also a single of "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr. with the original song plus dance remixes, but more importantly, it glows in the motherfreaking dark.

Record Store Day is a way to celebrate and support independently owned record stores all over the world. Each year musicians release exclusive rare vinyls and, in a way, it’s kind of like collecting Pokémon. Check out the full list of releases announced so far here and be sure to check with your local record store to make sure they’re ordering that weird rare thing you want.

Limited Edition: Code: Veronica Dreamcast Bundle
If I’m not mistaken, the Dreamcast has the most special editions and variations of any home console. Up there in rarity along with the Maziora Dreamcast and the Seaman Christmas Dreamcast is the Biohazard Code: Veronica Claire Edition, which included a transparent blood red system, a matching controller, a gray VMU with the game’s logo, a special metallic card inside a fancy case, and of course, the limited edition of the game itself. This console was limited to 1,800 pieces and goes for between $740 and $1,000, depending on how many pieces of the bundle are included and their condition.
Sega and Capcom also released a S.T.A.R.S. edition, which was a transparent dark blue and featured a S.T.A.R.S. logo. The Claire version is way sexier, though the S.T.A.R.S. one was much more limited, as only 200 were produced.

Limited Edition Pokémon X & Y 3DS XL Systems Hit Stores Today

Available in either red or blue, you can scoop one of these from your local retailer as of today, or you can totally do us a solid and get one using these Amazon links: RED / BLUE.

It was kind of a boner move on Nintendo’s part to not just wait until the new games are released in October and include digital versions with these as part of a bundle like they did with the Fire Emblem 3DS or the Animal Crossing one, but maybe it’s a smart move since they know Pokémon fans will just keep shelling out money to feed their obsession.

Grand Theft Ebay: Influx of GTA V Collector’s Edition Goodies on Ebay
I threw my $150 down on a Collector’s Edition of Grand Theft Auto V early since I knew it’d sell out fairly quick. Picked it up at midnight to see around 10 people who got one as well. I’m assuming a ton of people didn’t expect it to actually sell out though, as Ebay’s got a massive amount of Collector’s Edition goodies up for grabs for ridiculous money. And when I say ridiculous, I mean ridiculous. 
[[MORE]]
Take the New Era 9FIFTY snapback for example. It’s got a Los Santos logo stitched in front and a GTA V emblem on its side. It’s just a hat. And it’s going on Ebay for as high as $95, with actual listings with bids averaging around the $30-$40 area, though I have seen some hats with bids as high as $50 and some pretty decent knock-offs for $33.
The safety deposit bag from the Collector’s Edition is running between $20-$50, but it doesn’t seem to be a popular item with bids. This item is a safety deposit bag with the GTA V logo on it and a key to lock/unlock the bag. I honestly haven’t found a use for mine yet, but if I (frequently) sold drugs, I guess it’d be a cool bag to use? I don’t tend to keep wads of cash with me to need a lockup…
The blueprint map of Los Santos/Blaine County that was available for both the Collector’s Edition and Special Edition versions of Grand Theft Auto V are, as expected, the cheapest item to purchase online right now. I’ve seen a couple go for as little as $2 and as high as $10. Weird — I thought it’d be more sought after since the surfacing of the blacklight messages.
What’s absolutely blowing my fucking mind right now is the amount of money people are willing to spend on the DLC that was included in the Collector’s Edition, which gives players more tattoo options, another garage, an atomic blimp (which was the regular Special Edition of the game, but is going for way cheaper on Ebay), some car power-ups, faster charging ability gages of each character, characters from previous Grand Theft Auto games being available to use online (when it launches), and a couple of other bits. There’s a listing of the DLC for Xbox 360 currently at $89 (8 bids) and the same DLC selling for PS3 for $59 (24 bids!). This DLC is selling for insane cash.
And then, of course, we’ve got the Collector’s Edition of Grand Theft Auto V itself. The entire package, including the safety deposit bag, blueprint map, DLC, New Era snapback, and the steelbook game, all neatly packaged in its big box, is going for as low as $150 to as high as $1000. Chances are, if you’re bidding on a Collector’s Edition, no one really wants to go that much over $150. Those who really want this package are safely bidding up to almost $200.
People ask me if my $150 purchase for GTA V was justified. Was me hashing out an extra $90 for the game really worth it? Absolutely. I wear my Los Santos hat everyday (that’s me, pictured above) and I love having a giant empty box that says ‘Grand Theft Auto V,’ on my living room coffee table. It’s like my Gucci watch of video gaming.

Canada Mints 75th Anniversary Superman Coins - Step It Up, America!
Superman may fight for truth, justice, and the American way, but it’s the Canadians who were gracious enough pay homage to the Man of Steel with this set of seven limited edition coins.
[[MORE]]
These coins range from $30-$100, but if you want the gold one pictured above, it’ll set you back $750, but those prices are in Canadian dollars, so expect to pay just a little bit less if you’re paying with real money (i.e. the American kind). Get them here.






This one above is actually has a lenticular face that shows a different image from different angles. Crazy!
