Blog #060 - Blizzard Loot! Worth anything? Plus Games.

The only reason I am bothering to write this is that I won something. I never win anything. That isn't strictly true. I won a Digimon and McDonalds competition when I was a child but the prizes were basically nothing. I'm just happy to win things, even if you prizes are complete crap. In this case, I'm not so sure. In fact, I don't know the value of what I have won really.

There is a British multi-format magazine called GamesMaster that I read for 10 years, but not any more. I entered a competition recently to win some of the game junk they had laying around their office, and I won.

I'll do a little show and tell.

  • A metal Diablo pin. Very shiny. Doesn't seem like it was for Diablo 3 but may have been some promotional item.
  • A Jim Raynor noobz figure from BlizzCon09. In box, but not sealed. This is the coolest thing out of the lot.
  • Two Starcraft novels, one being a graphic novel. Still sealed.

I also got a bunch of other stuff including a "I (Heart) Starcraft" fridge magnet, a crappy wiimote controller grip, and a bunch of t-shirts. One from that cancelled star trek game (I think), one from Frozenbyte and the most interest one for Injustice. All really poor quality and HUGE so I can't wear them.

Is any of this worth anything? Doesn't have any particular value to me, though I do like the figure and the pin though I'm not likely to ever wear it.

GAMES!

I've also been playing some games. Went back to my finished Saints Row the Third save and cleared up the remaining side stuff. Well, territory control. Can't be bothered with the rest of it. The story made that game special. Started Viva Pinata on the PC again and slowly churning my way through that. Such an amazing game. One of Rare's best. I actually met some of the developers at Rezzed and talked to them about Rare as a whole...

Bought Orcs Must Die 2, need to get in to that. Also going to buy Iron Brigade again on PC so I'm not sure I'll have time.

The Starcraft and Diablo stuff don't seem like they're worth anything, but I'd be willing to do you a favour and take them off your hands! That was a joke :( Try looking for them on eBay and see what they sell for there.

@GunslingerPanda: The books are common items, so I don't expect much from them, but the other 2 seem unusual. Ryan made a big deal about getting one of these BlizzCon09 figures at the end of last year but I don't know.

Not a big deal, just curious what I've got. I have way too much gaming crap!

I forgot to add the other photos. Whoops.
