Need help gift-buying for gamers this holiday season? Here are some items to look out for.
Operating on a guy with a red lightbulb for a nose apparently doesn't cut it anymore. Perhaps because his most obvious abnormality was the one thing you couldn't attack with a pair of tweezers? Regardless, nowadays you can perform surgical procedures on all sorts of licensed characters, and of course, no conversation about licensed products would be complete without Star Wars.
Donkey Kong Jenga
If you've ever played Jenga before, you can't help but have noticed that what the game really lacks is a compelling narrative featuring an antagonistic ape. Donkey Kong Jenga addresses this common complaint with the addition of Mario quadruplets who, as the game progresses, must climb to the top of the Jenga tower to rescue Pauline from the titular simian kidnapper.
When Bethesda inevitably releases its oft-rumored but unannounced Elder Scrolls kart racer, this super deformed Dragonborn will surely be one of the drivers on the starting grid. Modeled after Skyrim's protagonist, he comes complete with a detachable crash helmet and two weapon-themed choking hazards. He's also available unpainted for those of you who are artistically inclined.
Olly Moss Book
Remember that cool Resistance 3 box art that cleverly incorporated New York's skyline into the dental work of a Chimera skull? Olly Moss did that. He also put together this book titled Silhouettes from Popular Culture, which features exactly what you think it does. Images aren't labeled, and there are no answer pages at the back, so if you don't recognize someone, you're out of luck.
Which is more tragic, Tetris or Tekken? Which is sexier, Passage or Pac-Man? These are just a couple of the countless question-and-answer combos that you might debate with friends during a game of Metagame: Videogame Edition. Warning: In the states of California and New York, this game has been proven to cause intelligent discussion, learning, and podcasting.
Your Commander Shepard might look nothing like this one. He might have different hair, he almost certainly wears different armor, and he might be a she. This action figure comes with approximately 100 percent fewer customization options than the in-game character that it's based on, as well as a code that can be redeemed for some Mass Effect 3 in-game content.
Ever since I got my husband Blockbuster @Home through DISH we haven?t been spending nearly as much money on buying games as we were before. He rents all kinds of games, new and old, so now I have to come up with other things to get him for Christmas. One of my coworkers from DISH thinks I should get him a new headset, but I think that he?d like a Street Fighter chess set even more. Thanks for the idea!
You have WoW monopoly and Halo risk, but you don't Gears of War the Board game (which is incredible). Here was a chance to show other gamers some of the awesome boardgames out there.
The chess set looks cool but the price just doesn't work for me. The different characters for the same pieces for different colors can get confusing though.
I don't know about this list. I've been a gamer for a couple a decades now and I wouldn't want anything on that list lol. Not sure where this list came from...hmmmmm
The Skylanders' description is so bad!!
Basically it's saying: "no need to be creative, forget imagination, everything's already been created for you, generic kid n. x"
The 8-Bit glasses and Retro keychains look like getters.
Me? I'd just be happy if my folks sent me a Steam card, or gifted me a game on Steam or GOG.
Seriously? No Scumbag plushie?http://store.supergiantgames.com/collections/frontpage/products/scumbag-plushie
Alternatively, one can wait for the Steam christmas sale, and buy games you'd normally pay at retail price for dirt cheap.
I'd love that Astro headseat. Anybody gonna get it for me as a gift? No? Ah well, it was worth a shot.
Wow. Its amazing. In this list, there are so many things I DON'T WANT AT ALL. Not even as a gift. But seriously, a $300 chess game? , a NES/SNES hybrid console?, Lego Minecraft? The only thing that I want (videogames) is not listed here. Beats me
@avatarIVN This whole site is a "list" of video games. Take a look at the Top Rated list if you'd like recommendations for games.
Mass Effect weapon replica is cool, although I'd want a Viper SR and a Harrier AR instead of the Predator.
I lol'ed at the chess set.
