Great Treasures at Gametraders – 9th March 2012

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!

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!
