Games recently added to stock

Just before Christmas, in time for the release of the film of the same name, The Adventures of Tintin hit the shelves of Gametraders Blacktown, and a few copies are still available.   Also, a lot of Kinect bundles were sold over the holiday season, so clearly it is time to cater towards those that want to get the full use out of the Kinect sensor.   Stock in Kinect games continues to increase, with Kinect Sports Season 2, Sesame Street’s Once Upon a Monster, and Dance Central being added to the games already available.

Great Treasures at Gametraders – 22nd December 2011

This is the last Great Treasures at Gametraders post prior to Christmas… so it might just be the place to look for those last-minute Christmas gift ideas!

Replica James Bond Walther PPK

There are five primary franchises that I really hold dear.   Previously, the main ones for which Gametraders has catered towards for me is The Lord of the Rings, with the delightfully sculpted blades from these films in the weapons cabinet, and of course their wide range of Doctor Who merchandise.   They now cater towards the second of these, with this beautiful framed replica of James Bond’s Walther PPK.   Upon my reaction, I was told that rarely can a grown man be seen to react in such a way.   I picked one up immediately!!   Now all we need is some Star Trek and Harry Potter merchandise, and I would never leave the store!
