General / Secret Santa sign up 2021! Time to mail! Updated!!!
« on: September 21, 2021, 06:47:07 pm »
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages ... VGCollect proudly brings to you its SECRET SANTA of the world!
***Copying and pasting last years rules***

If you want to participate this year, please post your name on this thread. I want people to have been members of these forums for at least 3 months prior to this and some sort of activity here. We have had 8 years so far of 100% success and we are not going to fail this year! Sign ups will be up through 10/08. Once its done, you have a week to send me your wish list, address info, and what not. Also include if you are willing to send out of your own country cause every year we get non US participants.

When you reply on this thread, post what you think the spending limit should be. I will take the most popular option and that's what we will go with. And since I'm mentioning it ... if the limit is $100 (an example) please don't send someone $10 worth of crap. The limit is more of a guideline as to what to expect to spend. Almost everyone here the past few years has went over the limit for their participant. Within the time of sending in the wish lists, if the limit becomes more than you want to spend, let me know and I can remove you from the list. No hard feelings will be had.

Every year we have a reveal thread and IIRC, Kashell/Dash/Turf and a few others actually do theirs on their YouTube page. If you wish to wait to open your gift til Christmas, that is definitely your prerogative. However, I would like to ask that no one posts anything about their stuff til after Christmas.

And the new stuff ... Please mention one of 4 options for gift receiving. 1- Please only go off of wish list 2- Use wish list if can but willing to accept items not in collection 3- Wish list is just a suggestion. Any and all gifts welcome (as long as not duplicates, decent condition, meets spending minimum) 4- Will not mind anything!
If you are late sending me your wish list, expect to be lumped into the 3 or 4 category or going to be bumped off the list all together.

Sign ups are closed. Time to send me your wishlist/address and your #1-4 preference. I will close these next Friday morning. If you do not send me a message in that time, you will be removed from this. I get stuck reassigning every year cause someone is late and Im not really going to mess with that this year. You have an entire week to get message sent. Wishlist is entirely up to you. Does not have to be gaming related. The only thing I ask is that you be specific as you want (including your 1-4 option). Please include your shipping info as waiting on it delays your Santa.

Wishlists are all in. You will receive a message with your giftee within the next day or 2. Will update this when done.

ALL RIGHT! Everyone has been sent their giftee. Christmas is 2 months away. Thats plenty of time to find a gift and get it mailed. ****Once you have mailed your gift, please send me the tracking info****

Lets have a great VGCollect Secret Santa!

***Update*** All gifts have been received!! :D 8 years running now at 100%. Nice going VGCollect. :)

Modern Video Games / Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-reckoning
« on: June 04, 2020, 03:20:52 pm »
I dont get too excited by a lot of series. Dragon quest, Darksiders, Trails of cold steel, Ni no kuni, etc are mostly it ... but one game thats in a category all of its own is Kingdoms of Amalur. It has been my single wish for the Ps4 was to get all 4 darksiders games, Ni no kuni remaster and Amalur on the system. I was seriously doubting that I would get that but as of 3 hours ago, THQ Nordic has confirmed part of my wish true! August 18 its time!

Im so excited. Amalur is the single most awesome open world WRPG Ive ever played and I cant wait for the rest of the world to get to experience it on the greatest platform ever!

Updating my list. Currently have over 650 titles available here ---> https://vgcollect.com/selllist/Soera

****PICS are available by request****  Taking over 650 individual pics is a silly undertaking. If you are interested in titles and want to see actual pics, message me. The games are from my personal collection and are in the condition you would expect them to be in.

All right. The line up is locked in! Time to get those wishlists sent (PM me on here). You can do them any way you like. Some people already have a VGCollect wishlist, some want to make their own, others just want anything they dont have. Please include your mailing info in the reply. Every year someone forgets to send it and its more to deal with to try to get it. Thanks!

Wishlist send ins are done. I will get everyone their recipient soon and time to buy is upon us. :D

Peeps are picked ... and sent out to their buyers! Its on like Donkey Kong! Remember, you have about a month to take care of this. I am hoping to have every name marked as sent by Dec 1.

All people are marked sent!

I have sent out emails to the people who have yet to notify me of receiving their gift. I would like to see this completed by actual Christmas. :D

And we are good. Mere hours before Christmas itself, I got the final message saying all gifts have been received. :)

General / Whiny ass gamers ....
« on: April 13, 2018, 11:30:16 pm »
I read forums/twitter every day even if I dont respond all the time. Lately its been the same thing "Where is the Switch version?" "How come no Vita?" "Why not the 3DS?" "When is the Xbox edition?" ... like wtf? When did every gamer decide to be so entitled that they think their beloved ass console will receive every single title? DQ XI and Shenmue 1&2 remaster announcements have brought me over the edge of silence. Its fucking sad lately.

Modern Video Games / Deformers
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:45:27 am »
For anyone who has waited on Deformers to go down in price to pick it up, your time is running out. It seems that it is being removed entirely from Gamestop (supposedly its being considered a failure) and may become somewhat of a higher priced item in the future.

Not sure how many people here are aware of the latest company to open and start publishing digital games. Strictly limited games is a company from Germany who has started just that.
https://www.strictlylimitedgames.com/

Announced in August (I believe) they are going by the once a month business model to release games on the PS4/Vita (possibly Switch in the future). The first title, Tokyo 42, is now available for pre-order purchase : https://store.strictlylimitedgames.com/products/tokyo-42-ps4 as well as some additional bonus items.
Soundtrack - https://store.strictlylimitedgames.com/products/tokyo-42-soundtrack
Art print (aluminum) - https://store.strictlylimitedgames.com/products/tokyo-42-art-print-i-aluminium-plate
Art print (glass) - https://store.strictlylimitedgames.com/products/tokyo-42-art-print-ii-acrylic-glass

All of their titles will be USK rated but will not feature the big stamp on the cover so that it shows 100% full art. Quote via the FAQ : There is no age rating printed on the cover / disk.

But of course, all games published by Strictly Limited Games have been officially rated by the German Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body (USK).


Already announced 2 additional titles for upcoming purchases.

SIGN UPS ARE LOCKED!!!! 25 people. Biggest one yet!!! Now is the time for wish lists. Send them to me via private message on here. I will be taking wish lists til basically the end of October (Not going to put an exact date cause of Halloween, my daughter's birthday, and her trip to Dallas is that weekend so Im going to be on and off then). November 1st is when I will take all the ones Ive received (Im saying it now ... if you do not have a wish list in by that time, I will be forced to drop you from this event) and pair people up. You will then have the entire month of November to buy/locate gifts for your person and get it mailed. Please include tracking in some form so that I can see the progress of the gifts and that your person will be able to track it so that they can insure its safe arrival. Let the show begin!

WISH LISTS ARE LOCKED!!!! Pairings are going to be done in the next 2 days. If you sent me a wishlist and did not send me a mailing address, you should reconsider that option! :D Once I have paired people up, I will send emails out letting people know who they are buying for. You will then have til December 1 to get your item purchased and mailed out. PLEASE include tracking if at all possible so that I/your giftee can keep tabs on items. Emails back to me once your item has been mailed out.

EMAILS ARE OUT!!!! I have sent out all the emails to people letting them know who they are buying for. Lets do this! Remember the spending amount is $50.

Last reminder for addresses!!!!

2.5 weeks til Christmas!!!! Most packages have already been received. Looks to be another flawless year! :D

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the loss of our friend Kenny Mowbray. For those of us that knew him, he was one of the greatest people I had ever met (on or offline). He would do anything for any of the people he called his friends. I miss my buddy.

General / Secrecy in the gaming community
« on: July 12, 2017, 05:01:02 pm »
So there is a thread on another forum I visit that pertains to PS4. One person mentioned that there was a game they were looking for but wouldnt mention the game itself cause "they dont want everyone out there looking for it". I offered to help this person find the game and the response was basically that once they find it, they will let people know the name of it but until then, its no go. Like omg wtf? I dont understand this frame of mind. Why do people in gaming communities tend to try to keep secrets? Its definitely not the first time this ... mentality ... has popped up but today was straight against me trying to help.

Ive heard about people who have "private" collections that no one knows about. Its an oddity to me.

Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 10
