Great Treasures at Gametraders – 8th February 2012

New Games

As can be seen above, there are quite a few new games that have become available today at Gametraders Blacktown.   The anticipated Metal Gear Solid HD collection is now available for both the PS3 nad for the 360.   Tennis fans can rejoice with the latest Grand Slam title available, with good ol’ John McEnroe gracing the cover.   Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a new RPG game that is getting some pretty nice reviews, so definitely worth a look.   Finally, for the 360, there is Never Dead also available.   I will admit ignorance of this game, but I said the same of Skyrim when it came out.   Here I am, 50 achievements later….


Ikon Collectibles has been very good to Gametraders this week, with some absolutely gorgeous figures now in stock.   For the Star Wars fans there are Darth and Stormtrooper mini bobble heads, as well as some classically styled Storm Trooper action figures.   There are some Avatar busts for those wishing to revisit Pandora.   To follow on the bust theme, we have a fantastic bust of Amber from Snyder’s Sucker Punch, which had its naysayers, but cannot be denied as being a visually spectacular piece of cinema.   I count myself as a fan.   There are some anime figures too, which only barely are acceptable for sale (boom tish!).   Best of all we have a fantastically detailed Captain America, and crazily enough it is on special!!   Come to Gametraders and have a look, my above photo does not do it any justice.


The Justice League, but not quite as you may remember them.   These are slightly morbid but ultimately very cool and cute plush.   Some have already sold quite quickly, so jump in while there are still some available.

Merlotte’s Mugs

True Blood fans, Gametraders continues to cater to your fangtastic needs.   The logo for Merlotte’s Bar is as familiar to you as bottles of Tru Blood itself.   So have Sookie’s waitressing attire adorn your mug.   Because as we know, it rarely adorns her in the show anymore!!

Coming Soon

The PS Vita is available for pre-order.   It has been on display in both the Parramatta and Blacktown stores in the past week, and though I had no interest before seeing it, now I consider my interest being very high.   I think I will soon own my first portable console since I had my Atari Lynx when I was a much younger person.

Also, a Gametraders exclusive is coming.   Yes, that is a Portal Gun that lights up in both portal colours.    It will be a Gametraders exclusive in Australia, and there will only be 300 released in the country, with a total of 5000 world-wide.    To get a hold of your own exclusive part of gaming history, pre-order it yesterday!!


Don’t forget that there is a Gametraders cosplay comp at Blacktown this coming Sunday.   It is to celebrate the latest anime releases that ill soon be available in store.   The best dressed male and female competition entries will win a copy of Naruto Shippuden Collection 8.   Come dressed as your favourite character, whether it is a comic book, anime, video game or any other pop culture icon to be in with a chance to win!!
