Tokyo Game Action Auction [06.06.09]

TGA entrance
We attended the Tokyo Game Action auction in Winchendon, MA this morning. A sad day for arcades. After nearly six years in operation, TGA had to close their doors due to a combination of flood damage and financial troubles. More details on their website. The owner had no choice but to liquidate the entire business: every arcade machine, every piece of japanese "swag", every fixture, every sign, and even the property itself.

Japan [10.21.08 - 11.02.08]

This entry is long overdue! We spent two weeks in Japan for our honeymoon back in October 2008. It was awesome - words cannot describe what an amazing time we had! We spent most of our time in Tokyo, but also visited Kyoto and surrounding for a few days. Below are pictures of everything we bought (photos taken while still in Japan). Though we wanted to buy everything in sight, we had to restrain ourselves, knowing it would've been impossible to get it all home. It was quite a feat just getting the video games home.

Read on to see all the cool stuff we bought in Japan!
