FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Game Revolution 2010 Wish List (That Aren't Video Games)

Posted on Thursday, December 16 @ 14:31:30 Eastern by
This year's Holiday Gift Guide is all modern with Flash widgets, all slick and fancy, and showcases a careful menu of video games and gadgetry. Albeit a bit safe. You know us Game Revolution folk. We have just that a little side of crazy, that need to go against the grain at all costs. So we feel it necessary to satisfy our dark egos and present you all with the awesome geekery that you shouldn't miss. If just for a laugh or two.


Blake's Pick - Pac-Man Hoodie and Mug – The hoodie is by far my most favorite piece of clothing to wear. It's like a mobile ninja blanket that keeps you invisible to the would-be muggers of Oakland (seriously, if you've got a hoodie and black pants on, you're noticed far less). It also keeps you warm during the winter months.

The Pac-Man Hoodie available at ThinkGeek.com combines my favorite game with my favorite fashion accessory, so it's a total no-brainer for me.

And the coffee that I put in the heat-changing Pac-Man mug is great for hiding the scent of whiskey on my breath.

I'll take this one-two Pac-combo to warm myself both inside and out from whoever's willing to buy it for me. Just don't expect me to put out for any of it. I'm not that kind of fella.

Wanna wear it?]

Or drink out of it?]



Nick's Pick - Power A Pro Elite Wireless Controller – Otherwise known as the PS3 controller that's shaped like a Xbox 360 controller, the Power A Pro Elite Wireless Controller is not really something I want. No, it's something that I want to give to my gamer friends, just to see the snarky look I'll get. I'm evil like that. (It's either this or the Shake Weight.)

But hey, it's actually a functional wireless controller for PS3 that might come in handy for those players who like the Xbox 360 controller better. (Does that make me an enabler?)

Fool your friends?]




Windy's Pick - Man Slinger My house was built at the top of a steep hill. It's great. All the time I've lived there, not one Jehovah's Witness has come a-calling, and the stars at night are very bright. As much as I like the seclusion of my little house on the hill, there is one major drawback: groceries. Every week I huff and puff up that hill with visions of pulleys, tow ropes, sled dogs, and jetpacks running through my head.

I'd say my front door sits 40 feet above street level, and maybe 15 feet back from the curb. The way me and Mr. Pythagoras figure it, the hypotenuse in the story problem that is my life is 42 feet long at almost a 70 degree angle. That's why I want the Man Slinger for Christmas. It was invented by the same guy who thought up the Segway and a whole slew of other brilliantly designed items.

Many of his inventions have a somber humanitarian tilt, but I can see getting a lot of fun out of this one. Hmm.. maybe there's a model with wheels; when I'm not putting away groceries, I can take it downtown and brush up on my Mirror's Edge skills. Merry Christmas, GR readers! Ho Ho Wheee!

Get flung out of it?]
 


Josh's Pick - TRON Game Chair – Having a standard gaming chair with speakers built in is sooooo 2000. We're about to enter a new decade here, and with TRON: Legacy just around the corner, it's a perfect time to upgrade the furniture with a TRON chair that glows in addition to making loud noises.

Like the nice, sentient program that is its namesake, it has the courtesy of running off its own battery pack so those pesky wires don't get in the way of vegging out. The rocker element is kind of weird and feels like an unsettling premonition of being a creepy gaming grandpa, but on the other hand, it does help to give it a little more of that lightcycle look. I'm sure your friends won't mind when they're mesmerized by the soft glowing design.

Sit in it?]



Kevin's Pick - GP2X Caanoo MAME/Console Emulator Now, I can't say emulation is "good" or "legal," but if there are games out there that can be played on this thing, I want it. The GP2X has been around for a little while, but c'mon, it's a portable gaming juggernaut capable of bringing some of the greatest games ever everywhere! From the NES to the NeoGeo, the arcade to the portables, there's nothing quite like a tiny machine that can play nearly anything you want it to!

To emulate or not to emulate?]



Eduardo's Pick - Joe Ledbetter's Q-Bert Painting & GameBoy Attire For Ladies – This one might be impossible to obtain now, but if I could, I'd love to have this! Joe's art is incredible and Q-Bert looks so cute in this painting! One of my all-time favorite pieces of video game-inspired art, by far. It was originally hung at the 2006 "I Am 8-Bit" expo and sold there to some lucky bastard.

[
Hang it?]


Jesse's Pick - Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 Premium VLX – So, yeah, I’ve already got a few arcade sticks floating around. I even have a custom-made, multi-console stick. But I’m a sucker for anything that can make console gaming feel more like the good old days of arcade gaming. This stick is a direct replica of those found in Taito’s VIEWLIX cabinets, so I’d be that much closer to my evil dream of having a home arcade. Sure I could carry around a bunch of grimy tokens in my pockets or spray myself with the scents of urine, cola, and stale popcorn, but I think I’d prefer just to have the stick.

Can you handle it?]
