On Sunday, Revenge of the Film Nerds had a blast at the second birthday of our favourite store. There was a TARDIS, Storm Troopers, Umbrella Corp, and Neo even popped in for a visit!! Lots of new and old customers attended the festivities, and many a photo was snapped. It was an awesome day, and here is looking forward to next year’s celebrations. The event was over all too quickly!!
It has been a while since we have given an update on our favourite store, so here are some of the goodies that are available this month!!
TRADING CARD GAMES
Gametraders Blacktown is your one-stop shop for Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Vanguard and Magic: The Gathering. The store is even holding weekly competitions for each of these games. The Yu-Gi-Oh comps have been running the longest, with a special month long-competition occurring in store for the month of August, with special prizes available at the end in addition to the regular weekly prizes. Magic and Pokemon tournaments have recently started, with Vanguard also set to commence this Saturday. Feel free to write to Revenge of the Film Nerds, or talk to the friendly staff at Gametraders, for more details.
There has been a load of new stock arriving this week at Gametraders Blacktown. Whether your preference is plush, figures, games or anime, you are all catered for. Here is a selection of some of the new items available in store.
There is only one obvious way to open this post. Today is Friday the 13th, and Gametraders Blacktown understands EXACTLY what this means…
Jason Metal Hockey Mask
Last night was a huge one for Gametraders Blacktown, with the long anticipated release of the limited edition Star Wars Kinect bundle. With the aid of a Storm Trooper and an Imperial Officer, most of the stock that Adrian had is almost gone. One of our very own contributors, SchmandaRose, walked away with a bundle, with the Star Wars element finally swaying her to have a 360 in addition to her favourite PS3.
It was that time this week when Gametraders Blacktown got a cornucopia of new anime stock in, including the long-awaited Collection 12 of Bleach. I could have taken many more photos, but there would have been no room in this post to share with you all what other goodies have arrived in store.
New and recently discounted games
Mass Effect 3
Easily the biggest release this week was Mass Effect 3. The trailers for this game have been absolutely awe-inducing, not that they were really needed for those whom were already fans of the franchise. I have not yet picked up my copy, as some of you may have realised that my review of Mass Effect 2 is not yet up, indicating I haven’t finished it. After all, I need to import my saved character!! For those that do not already have a model of the Normandy as well, Gametraders Blacktown is doing a bundle where you can get the game and the model for a total of $119.95!
The Vita is now here, and ready for sale at Gametraders Blacktown. Those that missed out on seeing the demo model, come and check this little beauty out. Touch screen and analogue sticks let you decide how you want to control the action. There are also already a number of games available, as you can see above, and there are enough to suit a wide variety of tastes, whether you are into racing, adventure, or RPGs.
