Looking for a holiday gift for a Blizzard fan? A Diablo III pre-order would do. But what if they already have that? Then pre-order Heart of the Swarm for them. If they have that as well, that’s where you start running out of options.
We all do it. Despite the fact that we might be destroying some fragile major award under the Christmas tree, we like to shake our wrapped gifts to try and figure out their contents. Well, here’s a geeky prank you can play on your loved ones the next time they go to shake their presents.
I’ll start out by saying that I’m not particularly religious, so I don’t know if any of you guys will be offended by this. If you are, you’re probably reading the wrong website. When I stumbled onto this, I couldn’t resist sharing this quirky little scene of the Nativity, retold with robots.
Samsung takes time out from battling lawsuits to get into the holiday spirit. Strangely enough, the advertisement was commissioned by the Japanese arm of the Korean electronics giant. Called Galaxy X’Mas Hugs, the ad features Hug-chan, a humanoid robot outfitted with a Galaxy Tab for a head, its cold arms ready to give a warm embrace.
What’s better than a Cthulhu 2012 calendar? How about a calendar app, that will deliver complete insanity directly to your mobile device? It sounds like some Cthulhu cultists have embraced new technology in order to make more people insane during this holiday season.
Experienced shoppers buy their holiday gifts early, so if you’re looking for a unique and memorable gift for an old school gamer, you better get one of Retrozone’s Xmas cartridges. These are original cartridges for the NES and SNES (or Famicom and Super Famicom, if you want to be OG) with Christmas-themed games.
I can hardly believe it myself, but the change in the weather and the ever-shortened days can mean only one thing – the holidays are almost here. Even though it’s a little early to start talking about Christmas in my house, I couldn’t resist mentioning this holiday decoration, perfect for the Star Wars fan.
If there’s one thing that Cthulhu probably wouldn’t wish you, it’s Merry Christmas, because just thinking too much about this outer god will drive you slowly insane. In fact, don’t think about or say his name aloud too much either.
If I had a Quadrocopter remote-controlled flying aircraft floating around my place, I’m not sure this is the first thing I’d do with it. But it is the holidays, and I guess the joyful Christmas spirit is strong with the guys who programmed their Quadrocopter to play a little festive holiday tune.
I can vividly recall as a child hating to go to my grandmothers annual Christmas Eve dinner. I was always afraid Santa would come by, see I wasn’t asleep and then leave with my toys. I freaked out each time I saw one of those red lights on a tower to warn aircraft thinking it was Rudolph’s nose.
Jabba’s been a good Hutt in Boba Fett’s book:
What’s not to love about this highly detailed 8-inch fabric mache statue? Its release date, that’s what. You can pre-order it from Entertainment Earth for $50 (USD), but if you’re going to get this as a gift, make sure you tell the recipient that it won’t arrive until sometime in… May 2011.
