that time again, USAA auction time! Lots of entertaining pictures
below. Again, few of the prices are posted - I could only stay for
pictures and a few of the misc. junk items at the beginning. Thanks to
Hans O for providing the prices I do have here.
couple of general notes: 1. Lots of sniper/shooting games. Normally
there are quite a few shooters, but TWO Silent Scope 2 games? Looks
like yet another sign that the sniper panic on the East coast has
traveled to the Midwest.
This auction's front-runner for the Bad Conversion award: my vote is the Gauntlet-to-Vindicators game. Ick.
See if you can spot all the conversions in the below pictures, and send me an e-mail with your vote for the worst conversion of this auction. I'll start a running feature, and the conversion that gets the most votes from each auction will go into a special "Hall of Shame" section on the site. Check out the previous auctions I have pictures from on this site and submit candidates from those as well. Just make sure you tell me the picture name (right click and look for the "View Image" or similar option, it should tell you the file name) and which auction it's from. Submit your entries here.
