Return to Ravnica ~ Next Week!

Only one week to go until Return to Ravnica hits store shelves, and we wanted to remind everyone that Sunken Treasures Games will have the set in stock on release day, Friday – October 5th! (Probably a little bit after noon, but feel free to call before hand.)

Return of the Return to Ravnica!

Personally, we see ourselves aligned with the Azorius Senate – which guild are you most interested in?

If you’re looking to pre-order a booster box, please speak with one of our associates next time you’re in the store and we’ll hook you up!

This Just In ~ September Edition of WHAT!? MVC2!?

It’s been a little while since we’ve done a “This Just In” segment on the website here, and as September draws to a close now seems like as good a time as any. We’ve added so much to the store over the last month! Wrote a post about it. Like to see it, here it goes:

~I wanna' take you for a riiiiiide~ x Infinity

On Tuesday the 18th we added a new member to our slowly but surely growing arcade in the form of Marvel vs. Capcom 2!

The back area has changed so much since we first opened.

I this I saw a tumbleweed go by!

We’re going to have to expand or something! xD

A pretty hoppin' little world back here.

Oh how times have changed!

A few of our regular customers stopped by and traded in the majority of their manga and anime, and we pretty much doubled our inventory.

This Just In! ~ Bit.Trip Edition

One of the fun things we picked up on our adventure to the Penny Arcade Expo was a handful of copies of the wonderful Bit.Trip Saga (for 3DS) and Bit.Trip Complete (for Wii). It was a lot of fun chatting with a few of the folks from Gaijin ~ the team behind the game ~ and we’re eagerly awaiting Runner 2!


Each are available for $24.99+tax.

Also Gaijin was kind enough to give us a few promotional materials, so if you’re in the store and want a sweet pin or sticker of CommanderVideo, just say the word. Thanks again to Alex for taking the time to talk with us!

Weiß Schwarz Trade Night – Wednesday!

This week for “WeissFight!! Wednesday“, we’re having our first ever Weiß Schwarz trade night. In addition to playing a few games, most everyone will be bringing extra cards to trade with – since WS covers so many different series/games.

Trade Night!

If you’re new to Weiß Schwarz, but like anime/card games and want to learn how to play, we’d be more than happy to show you with a test deck or two. So bring a friend and some extra cards from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. It’s time to expand your decks!

Lastly, for those of you who already know and love the game – we’re receiving an order later this week for the following:

Idolmaster Anime – Boosters and Trial Decks (people are trying to sell signed cards 80-200+ bucks so far…), Fate/Stay Night – Boosters, and Milky Holmes – Extra Boosters (Both Sets). Accel World Trial Decks are held up at the moment, but will be arriving a week or so after release.

Tuesday Night Magic ~ now with more MAGIC!

The STG crew have been busy little bees as of late!

We’ve been working hard on our backlog of Magic the Gathering cards and getting cards sorted and put out. Not only have we been able to add another box of commons and uncommons to the back area, we were able to get a nice amount of rares out also.

New in attendance on the rare shelf is: Garruk~ Primal Hunter, Jace~ the Mind Sculptor, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Liliana Vess, Nicol Bolas, and Tibalt~ the Field-Blooded.

Stop on by today to check out these and all the other new cards we have in stock. While you are here, join us from 6:00 – 9:00 tonight for casual game night! Bring your decks, trades, and appetite for fun!!

Yakuza: Dead Souls

My love of SEGA’s Yakuza series has been well documented ~ through the good times and the bad. I remember the disappointment I felt when I heard Yakuza 3 would be coming to America without Hostesses; and the man-tears that were shed during the climactic finale of Yakuza 2. I remember playing through Yakuza 1 and laughing at (with?) the hilarious voice acting, then being blown away by how far the series and it’s characters had come in Yakuza 4. Hell, I even played through about half of the import only Kenzan and Kurohyou despite my limited knowledge of the Japanese language. I loved the Takashi Miike live action Yakuza movie – Like A Dragon – a crazy fun companion to the games that would confuse the bejeezus out of anyone who hadn’t played them. I own expensive soundtracks that I listen to while playing other games — and I’m currently drooling over the thought of the in-development Yakuza 5 – which I pray will find it’s way to our shores.

Kamurocho!  Wha-happened!?

So why all this gushing over the Yakuza series? Because as I wrap up my initial playthrough of the most recent game in the series, the zombie infested spin-off Yakuza: Dead Souls (I prefer the Japanese subtitle “of the End” but oh wells! xD) I’m slowly coming to the conclusion that this series has become my favorite of all time. I can’t think of a series I’ve invested more into. Dragon Quest is a close second, for sure, and Final Fantasy isn’t far behind, but man… THESE GAMES.
