MSI R9 290X Lightning Graphics Card

Previously used games are games that were played by another player and he is done with it and wants to trade in for another game or some money.  Why parents wouldn’t buy previously used games for their kids is beyond me.  Previously used games works just as well as any other games put out in [...]

Be Wary Of Shopping On Ebay

Buyers Beware! when shopping on ebay.  Being a veteran shopper and seller at ebay, you would think that I wouldn’t be scammed or lose any money – after all ebay did promised to keep the buyers safe.  But it is not the case when I bought a retro game for $150 – received the game [...]

MineCraft Xbox 360

A copy of Minecraft xbox 360 came into the store recently and since the kid is into minecraft of late – like building boxes on the internet, I figured I would bring it home and play it with her on Sundays.  Sundays are our father and daughter time – and playing games with her seems [...]
