Your probably wondering what that sexy little guy is on my wrist. Well let me tell you… it is a wrist band that gained one access to the EGLX Gaming Expo last Sunday. In addition, it’s attractiveness also allows it to act as a lady magnet! I couldn’t keep them away! Back off I’m married! Anyways, my buddy the Sega Dude and our dealer (Flavio) invited me to come to the EGLX Gaming Expo in Toronto to sell the scraps of what I have left over in my non-NES collection. For a few weeks now I had put up the lot on an ad on Kijiji, but only got one response which led to no where. Usually this means one thing… my prices are too high. I thought they were fair as they were under what both my puregaming.org app and prichcharting.com said they were worth… but alas, something is only really worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. Anyways I basically brought my loot with the same Kijiji price tags attached and managed to sell a few things. To be specific, I sold an N64 console, a Game Cube console, and a copy of Baten Kaitos. I was happy to be rid of these items as I had never played the Game Cube, and the N64 is just a garbage system. Unfortunately I was stuck with my copy of Chiki Chiki Boys for the Genesis, and my extra copy of Kickmaster for the NES that I have.
Now before we go any further, I did have an issue. You see, one of the other vendors brought his girlfriend/wife dressed in some sexy cosplay outfit that I’m unfamiliar with. I’m told her name is Chainsaw Lollipop (as pictured above)? Honestly, she was very attractive and totally pulled it off… a great sales gimmick! Unfortunately she wasn’t utilized properly. You see, her boyfriend was all over her and couldn’t keep his hands off her body the entire time. This removes the element that the nerdy customers might actually have a chance at female contact, and thus be willing to shell out monstrous amounts of cash for the junky trinkets they were selling. My suggestion to this couple is that the dude should stay home and let his cosplay girlfriend work her magic alone!
I did manage to pick up these two titles… though obviously nothing to write home about, they were previously absent from my collection.
All in all I’m glad I went, though I would have been very disappointed had I paid the $35 admission fee to get in. If your into competitions, then I suppose it may have been a really good time, but if not, then you basically are paying that cover fee to do some shopping for miscellaneous items. However Flavio got us in for free so it was a good time.
