It's like Double Dare found love with a roll of sushi and made a beautiful, action-packed Wii U game.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437     In all the talk of graphical downgrades no one seems much preoccupied with 'why?'.  Why build something and then proceed to tear it down, piece by piece, in the hope that ever more diminished expectations about the final product won't be severe enough to...

It's extremely tempting to cheat in this section. We can justify putting any ridiculous object here as long as it's geeky and the stocking is large enough. What do you mean, of course the Xbox 360 Elite Modern Warfare 2 Bundle can fit in a stocking. We have no idea what you're talking about.

Netflix Subscription

MSRP: $9.00 / month (Most inexpensive policy), $14.00 / month ("Great Value" policy)

With the price of cable skyrocketing and video rental stores being a hassle, a Netflix subscription is the best substitute, especially with the Xbox 360's and PS3's instant Netflix streaming (the PS3 requires a Netflix disc). For about $108 a year, you can get (or give someone) access to Netflix's extensive library of classics and TV shows including The Office, South Park, Farscape, 30 Rock, Doctor Who, The IT Crowd, Dexter, Penn & Teller: Bullshit, and plenty of cult classics that every gaming geek should know.

Where can I get that?

  

Wireless Sensor Bar for Wii Console

MSRP: $19.99 (DVD)

Why? Because you know you hate that wire between the sensor bar and the Wii. That's the only reason.

Where to lose the wire?

  

Mad Catz Tournament Edition Fight Stick

MSRP: $149.99

Whether you get the Mad Catz Tournament Edition Fight Stick with the Street Fighter IV or the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 art, it is well worth the price for those hardcore fighting friends you have who can't stand doing a quarter circle without a joystick. Its Sanwa Denshi quality components are adjustable and the buttons are quick-to-the-touch responsive and precise.
