Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 12/07/14
RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Something old, something new, these knick-knacks are perfect to hang over the fireplace. Much better than hand-me-down sweaters and meltable candy canes.


Gamefly Subscription

MSRP: Varies
Let us expand on the wisdom of not paying the MSRP for a video game, ever. This can be done with a little help from Gamefly. Functioning just like Netflix, this service lets you play all the games you want, without pawning your girlfriend's jewelry or donating blood until you shrivel up and die. You have nothing to lose, except the games themselves.

Hook me up, GR!

 

Xbox Live Marketplace Points

MSRP: 1600 for $19.99

Xbox Live isn't just how you play online anymore. While the service isn't as robust as On Demand cable, it's been active for over a year, and remember, Microsoft has more money than God. Not to mention all the demos, arcade games and other random things a person can buy on Xbox Live. Horse armor! And hey, the new Street Fighter HD Remix will soon be out.

Wii Points Card

MSRP: 2000 Pts. for $19.99

Same basic idea as the Live Marketplace Points, except their conversion actually makes sense (100 Wii points = 1 dollar), and instead of spending them on episodes of Jericho, you can buy classic NES, SNES, N64, Genesis and TurboGrafx-16 games through Nintendo's Virtual Console service, including the original Legend of Zelda, Altered Beast, Bonk's Adventure, Gunstar Heroes, F-Zero and Mario 64, for between 500 to 1200 points. Clap if you like VC!

Blow Me Old School Cartridge T-Shirt

MSRP: $12.95

Fashionable and direct... what's not to like? This T-shirt screams with personality and manliness, and only the women who understand the joke will be those you want to date. I mean, It filters the dating pool for you!

Just make sure that you've got lots of dust in there. You know, leave a lot of repair work. It might need to be fixed twice... or more if you insert your cartridges right.

Dress me up!

 

Chocobo Plush

MSRP: $19.99

We're not Square Enix fanatics, though they usually come out with great titles every now and then. Still, nothing says "Christmas gift for a girlfriend" but an oversized chicken in a Santa's Helper outfit.

Why? Because even she doesn't understand why you're such a geek, she'll say "awwwww.... cute". And on the off-chance that she does know what a Chocobo is, the awww-OMG-sooo-coooot-*hug plush*-*snuggle* reaction is worth it.

Where can I get that?

 

Pac-Man Plush Cap

MSRP: $29.99

*wakka, wakka, wakka*

It may not be the most sensible gift, but come on!

*wakka, wakka, wakka*

Where to gobble?!

 

Nyko Charging Station

MSRP: $39.99

Hate having to replace those darn coppertops? Of course, GR has ninja gerbils who continually generate power for our batteries. But in case they ever die, we have a Nyko Charging Station as a backup. With hardly any set-up, the station will charge up to two Wii-motes while you're snoozin'. You may even want to buy two of them just for parties.

Charge me.
