Today I have a bunch of limited items that are being auctioned off for a good cause. But the story behind it all is very sad. Company of Heroes Designer Brian R. Wood passed away in September, and we at VGA give our warmest condolences to Brian’s wife and family.
What happened is that Brian was driving his car when a Chevy Blazer hit his car dead on. Brian did a heroic act and steered in time to take the impact on his side, and save his wife from the major impact. He is survived by his wife and his unborn child. I remember seeing this news where I live, and I am shocked to realize now that what I watched is from this accident. It’s quite rare when you watch the news in Canada about a car crash from Seattle since accidents happen everywhere, but this story hit the local news because of Brian’s heroic act. I remember the new’s anchors were very touched by this story and got out of their professional “masks” to acknowledge what he did.
The guys at Bethesda Blog are doing something special to help raise money for The Brian Wood Memorial Trust. Months after the accident, they’ve put together quite a list of limited signings for Fall Out that are truly one-of-a-kind items. I highly doubt you will have a chance like this to obtain collectibles like these. Taken straight from Bethesda Blog:
“This is your chance to get some cool, limited stuff in time for the holidays. To those that win, we thank you for helping contribute to Brian’s family.”
There are many collectibles that are signed by the development team at Obsidian Entertainment. Also up for auction is a Vault Boy Bobblehead signed by game director Todd Howard. Todd’s decisions for Fallout 3 was is most notably recognized for how the combat was built in the game, what the viewpoint was like and so forth.
These are some of the most impressive collectibles I’ve seen this month, and I’ve seen many. If you are interested in viewing the auctions, they are currently on eBay. Some of the auctions are getting major attention. Please see the auctions below:
