REVIEWS NBA LIVE 15 Review
Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

Skylanders Go For $1262.68 On eBay, I Start Buying Skylanders

Posted on Monday, February 20 @ 09:00:00 Eastern by

When I was in sixth grade, I'd visit my local card shop on a regular basis and drool over the foil Charizard they had under the glass case in front. It was priced at over $100. I was 10 and if I had had $100 I would have felt like the kid in Blank Check.

I would have bought it if I could, but I resigned myself to buying a bunch of booster packs and hoping, praying, for the card to be within. It's been over 10 years now, and somehow the market on obscenely overpriced children's fads has multiplied by just as many years.

An eBay auction for 6 Skylanders figures has topped out at US $1262.68. Gold versions of Chop Chop, Flameslinger, and Drill Sargeant were bundled with silver versions of Eruptor, Boomer, and Dino-Rang. I have no idea what the fuck I just typed.

I guess Activision's Spyro experiment could be considered a success, but where the hell is Spyro?
