The Destructoid staff already went off on the topic of game collecting last month. I think most of us agreed that collecting was fine as long as you actually played the games, and we came to the conclusion that keeping them in boxes like trophies was kind of douchey.

Well, this service is for those douches: the Collectible Grading Authority will take your money and look at your sealed boxed Mint NO RESERVE, MUST SEE NO SHIPPING rare items and grade them for you. 

This company has launched a new division called the Video Game Authority. They will take your games, grade them, inspect them for defects, and then seal them away inside acrylic cases to protect them. That's right: for only $20 a game, VGA will make your rare title totally useless.

What do you think about this service? Isn't this just like burying your games forever?

Interstellar Selfie Station is what happens when you keep the best part of a scrapped project

Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story) was making an FMV game and decided that it wasn't fun, but the development tools were. Because of this insight, we can all take 2 bit selfies for days. I wonder how long before my browser's built in spell check accepts "selfies." Yes, you. Do it. Though I don't know if you can beat Holmes and Love.more

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
