"Visit GeminiPhoenix's Profile!"

Q: Hello! A very nice rare you have there! A very nice example if I may say so, and great to see sealed, even with minor damage! It's not often a SNES game like this comes along in this condition Nov-19-08
A: Thanks you very much! And very astute of you to point that out, I consider it a compliment! Thanks for your interest!

(you obviously forgot the "are we expecting too much" line in that buyer's question)

Very good detective work boys! And I would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for you pesky kids... (Hmm, cliche!) - Nothing sinister is going on though, I can assure you of that. The games for sale are genuinely for sale, along with a few things I am selling for a friend of mine, hence why I am using a different username to sell.

I wondered how long it would take you guys to notice. It was touch and go there for a while, I even had to wave this thread under your noses in order for you to pay attention. I had thought it would've been obvious from the start with the items for sale, but Happyheed was the first to make the link between what was on offer and what I had in my trade bin. Bballno1 discovered the obvious (Albeit deliberate) mistake I made with the ImageShack account. I was already aware of it though, which is why I was surprised no-one mentioned it sooner! I do have a separate account for eBay, but couldn't access it for some reason at the time I listed the items


It has been fun watching the mystery unfold though! I thought DS had realised on day one when he spotted the Kirby auction. I've actually learnt a lot in the last week, more than you could imagine! I know who's who and who knows what, and just goes to show how much some people actually take notice of minor details... I also know how far some people are willing to go in order to end an auction early...

No harm in having a little fun along the way hey! Kudos to you guys! top !


PS. You'd be surprised to know just how deep the rabbit-hole really goes... Wink

Unfortunately, not mine. I wish it was. Same as the YouTube account and MySpace account with that name are also not mine. Likewise, the company called "Gemini Phoenix" (http://www.geminiphoenix.com/) is also nothing to do with me

A deliberate red-herring

I've known about that eBay user for some time, and was gutted when I couldn't register with it. Same for MySpace and YouTube, which I also discovered when trying to register with both sites

I've been playing a lot of Professor Layton & The Curious Village lately. Lol! Smile

If anyone does have any questions about the items for sale, feel free to ask. I'm not trying to deceive anyone in case that's what anyone thinks

It was a bit of fun, nothing more. I was half tempted to list my entire collection for a laugh and see how long it would take everybody to notice! Lol. I was also on the fence about coming out too, but thought a gentle nudge in the right direction couldn't hurt, seeing as no-one had spotted the obvious tell-tale signs...

a few of us knew straight away (as soon as you listed the games ) that it was you selling the games . we just went along with it Very Happy
the simple reason is you bought the game from snestbits a while back and the exact same game with the same damage and same tear strip appears back on ebay . doesnt take a detective to work that one out Wink

Hmm, I did not realise that the old auction was still actively viewable though, otherwise I would've waited a while longer. It's been kicking around gathering dust for a while though, and I need the cash to fund my X360 CE collection and Dvd Steelbook's, so thought it was expendable along with a few other trinkets I had spare.

Snesbits didn't really go into too much detail in regards to the extent of the damage to Kirby in his auction though. I only bought it on the off-chance that it wasn't too bad, which it isn't really upon close inspection, but I though someone else might benefit from it more than me as i'm not really a SNES collector (I only bought F Zero and Pilotwings as they form parts of sub-collection's).

I think of it more as "Viral marketing". Although not as elaborate as Halo 2's 'I Love Bees' campaign, I think it went quite well, and was a little more interesting than just creating a thread and pimping my auctions Wink

lol ive just remembered I messaged you (although I was unaware it was you at the time) asking if you had any other sealed games for sale and if you would sell a couple of your n64 ones.

and you had replied asking if i was 'some kind of collector or something?' as if you didnt know who was asking the question and if i knew 'anything about how rare Nintendo games are in this condition?' . ha you really were determined not to give yourself away werent you? Smile
