I'd wear a watch, but each and every time I've ever owned one it's been lost to a sleepy head not taking it off before taking a shower

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

I wear a cheap Casio watch most of the time. I still need to go out and pick up my 4th band for it. I paid more for the wristbands on this thing than the watch itself. LOL

It's a great little watch, though. Waterproof, digital, and the battery lasts, what seems like, forever.

You would be surprised, I have a few watches but I don't wear them much since I'll bang it all over the place. They have become quite the accessory and have become part of mens fashion.


perhaps but they seem impractical if you have a cell phone. im sure i have a few watches ive gotten over the years but i never use them just more in that endless "useless presents ive gotten from family over the years" pile

who doesn't wear a watch? it's man jewelry and most every one in the office and people I meet on a professional basis wear a watch. It would be strange to see a man's naked wrists.

Regarding DS collections, when did the value of Electroplankton tank? I see it everyone's collection and remember is used to fetch $80 on ebay a few years ago. Did I miss a reprint?

I've also been wondering this. It's $10 at gamestop, when it used to be $60+ and impossible to find:roll:

Dude, watches are super trendy right now (and have been for some time). Plus, as a designer, I tend towards that sort of jewel-like gadgetry ;)

I think it might have something to do with the flood of Chinese Bootlegs that hit ebay a few years ago.

Prompted by the bad enonomy these last 5 years and the tanking price, more people sold their copies thus inflating supply and putting more downward pressure on the price. According to VGChrtz they only printed 10,000 copies for North America but that's a large number if only 9,000 people world wide care about owning a legit NTSC copy.

The game is not that great (in terms of replayability at least) so without the allure of being valuable, only collectors or hard core Smash Bros fans are going to care about owning it.

Honestly I have no Idea, but it's fun to speculate:)

seems obsolete what with phones everywhere that tell time.

i do admit even when i was a child and people said wear a watch so you know what time it was i at best stuck in my pocket and used it for that purpose as i hated wearing them. but now days they just seem obsolete. i also never got into man jewelry or found it appealing.

If you're still wearing a watch it's not that much longer till you probably have to upgrade one to a bigger face. Same thing with your cell phone, you will need one with bigger buttons.

I wore a watch before cell phones. Now it's just a fashion statement. I don't wear any jewelry either. I think it's mainly middle aged men that still wear them.

Man... this thread got derailed fast.

I think it's probably because the whole fad with "non-games" (Brain Age, Nintendogs) died and additionally, because Eletroplankton itself was not worth more than $5.

Electroplankton is on my to buy list... but it isn't a high priority. I passed on one for $20.00 yesterday.

I'll be posting a new collection update soon, probably next week. Waiting on a few shipments first.

I also noticed Tetris DS fell pretty drastically in value. Did it get a reprint, or is it the same deal with Eletroplankton?

Same deal.

The bootlegs during that time really drove the prices down on a lot of Nintendo published titles.

Hmm..Well it really stinks for the owners of legitimate copies, but I'm glad I can get a real copy now for a reasonable price. Ive always wanted to try Electroplankton, but not for $80.

likewise. I've passed on a lot of DS games because for whatever reason, more than $20 for a handheld game seems to much to me (except Professor Layton:bouncy:). Always wanted to get Tetris DS, thanks for the price heads up:)

Just a heads up to everyone looking to pick them up now too that there are still a ton of bootlegs floating around, so be very sure you know how to spot the difference between bootlegs and real when you are out there purchasing, or purchasing from someone online. Regular sellers without common knowledge may have purchased one themselves and are selling them online, so it's not just look out for the China sellers anymore. Just be aware. ;P
