This might be a nice little pick up for you Game Boy collectors out there. While a new Turok 2 is probably not the most interesting sealed GBC game you can come across, the packaging manages to make this one unique.
This PC version of Turok 2 is marked as a special “Member’s Only” edition. After talking to the seller he’s not even completely sure what member this refers to, as it has been in his collection for nearly a decade. In addition to the cd-rom, manual and inserts, it includes a sealed copy of the GBC version. Interesting concept, as I can’t think of any other PC release (special, limited or otherwise) that included the console version of the game as well.
Side note: Turok 2 in general is one of those few PC games you should keep in mind. It seems to fetch a decent price, from $20.00 – $40.00.

NASCAR Racing: 2003 Season – Why does a seven year old racing game fetch such a price? Check out the previous writeup I’ve done on Nascar Racing 2003 Season.
The Journey to the Wild Divine – Sold for $252. This is another game I’ve wanted to mention for sometime. It is a Myst like biofeedback game promoting stress management and overall wellness through the use of breathing, meditation and relaxation exercises. Yup, you heard me right. It comes with a USB-based biofeedback reader which attaches to three fingers, and measures heart rate variability and skin conductance level. Heart rate variability measures the amount of variability between heart beats, which has been reported to be associated with various pathologic conditions. Skin conductance level indicates the amount of perspiration on the skin surface, which is a measure of stress in the body. Then in game, you need to adjust these levels in your body to progress. Entertainment wise, I can’t imagine this being an engaging title, but no doubt it’s an interesting concept.
ID Anthology Collectors Set – Overpriced as these can be had for under $200 if you find one at open auction. Basically contains all the classic ID games and some sweet promo items.
