Default Important Lessons: Always check eBay before throwing out old crap in your closet!

Today, I was clearing out a bunch of old PC games in my closet and thought that I should check to see if any of this stuff was rare. Good thing I did, came across this:

LOTR The Battle for Middle Earth 2 PC The Rise of The Witch King w Bonus | eBay

I was kinda shocked to know that this game was going for so much, even used. Goes to show you, you never know unless you check

There's a Lesson to be learned here. Never throw anything away, ever.

Were you at Austin or Cali? I worked for EA twice in Austin.

You worked for EA? You lived to tell about it?! All I've ever heard are horror stories from people who worked there.

Ah EA....slave drivers....I worked at the Playa Vista office when the first LotR: Battle for Middle Earth was being developed. That was during the EA_Spouse days!
