I spent half the day on Ebay putting my mangas for sale, I'm trying to do this right and I've added some info on the mangas, mainly the author, hoping that that it will increase the chances of getting bid on...

I've programmed them to all start and end on a Sunday, hoping to get a bidding war, but I wonder if having them start at the same hour is a good idea?

I've got my hopes on two auctions, I'm selling an old Ranma 1/2 tome in the original format, since my Japanese isn't good enough to read it, it's useless to me...

Also I'm selling the Star Wars manga, I can just hear the geeks drool just by reading it...

Speaking of Ebay the guy from Singapore hasn't replied and I still don't know if he (or she) knows that the DVD is in Spanish, I don't know if I should send or wait for a reply...


Even though this game is supposed to be out on all formats (except PSP), the GBA version was the only one I found...

The plot is simple, the gang are visiting Fred's cousin Jed (How many cousins do they have?) who works in the movie industry making, wouldn't you know it, monster disguises!

When they arrive Jed is gone and something has been stolen. The item in hand is a substance that creates the most realistic disguise in the world, maybe TOO REAL!

The studio has been overrun by mosnters, which drop the substance of which they are made of. If Scooby picks up enough he can use it to created his own costumes (hence the "unmasked" moniker)!

Scooby's first costume will be a kung-fu one which allows him to kill monsters with one karate chop and move special crates, and obvioulsy the first level (I consider the previous one a training level) is China Town, and after that you'll visit a haunted theme park (are there non-haunted ones?) where Scooby become a "bat-man" and glides through the air, and the final level (yes, there are only three) is a museum where you become "Robin-Scooby" with plunger arrow that cling to walls...

The stage follow a simple path, find clues and ingredients, make it to the end and rescue Daphne. Then give the ingredients to Shaggy to play a puzzle minigame to earn extra health, and enter another level to get even more clues and ingredients if you missed a few before.

When you have enough Velma will start another mini game where you must guess which clues are real and which fake, considering that the fake clues are stuff like "a tennis racket used by sewer rats"... Well, this game IS intended for kids after all...

Then Fred wants help to build a trap, how do you do it? By riding a rollercoaster! You must dogde spikes and jump from rail to rail until you get enough parts to build a trap...

And then what? You play some sort of DDR game! You have to press button with a certain rhythm like DDR or Parrapa, as you progress the face of the villian unveils, and after that you must battle the boss, which you'll recognize if you're a Scooby fan, since they are each from an episode of the original series...

In the end, the games is short, and not really hard, but it's kinds fun near the end, too bad it ends too quickly...

To sum it up, I'd only recommend this game to Scooby fans or little kids, the rest should avoid it due it simplicity and short gameplay...

Yay game reviews!

As to the Singaporean... if your eBay ad stated clearly that it was in Spanish, then I would just send it. They aren't communicating with you, after all.
