Your Childhood Toys Might be Worth Big Bucks…

According to another site in which I found this information, your childhood toys could be worth a fortune! My guess is that the people who desire to pay these crazy prices obviously didn’t have as good a childhood as you did. My parents had the best plan for raising us, they wouldn’t buy us anything but instead made friends with rich parents so we could play with their kid’s toys. It was a flawless plan which I intend to pass on to my kids…as soon as I acknowledge their existence…which may take a while. In the mean time enjoy the frustration you will no doubt get from seeing how valuable these toys are now. Thanks for selling those super-soakers at a garage sale for $2 mom! Great call! *These are listed prices on eBay, they don’t necessarily reflect the actual value of these toys. I mean, I sold myself on eBay for $32 and I’m worth $29.50 tops.   Super Soaker: $549 on eBay   Tamagotchi: $460 on eBay   Yong T-Rex Jurassic Park Toy: …

Ready 2 Rumble…the game

Easily one of my favorite games of the late 90’s/early 2000’s, it’s the over-the-top Ready 2 Rumble boxing. In an era when boxing games for N64 and PlayStation were trying to be more realistic and “true to the sport”, Ready 2 Rumble embraced the arcade style that made games like Punch-Out! a hit. The game was released on PlayStation, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color and Dreamcast. In fact, it was so successful on the Dreamcast that it became one of the few Sega All Stars titles. With Michael Buffer announcing, fast and fun gameplay, along with colorful characters like Afro Thunder, this game was a perfect pick up and play fighter that I miss in today’s world of advanced video games. I remember in Championship mode having to work my way through the ranks. You start out boxing in front of a dozen fans to filling out an arena. Although, even in front of that dozen fans the “Buff” is still announcing. I guess he must need the paycheque.
