Pac-Man was the first video game I ever played in the arcade back in the day. I remember not making it very long because I was always trying to gobble up the power pellets and didn’t do a good job evading the ghosts.
When I worked in the corporate world, I think my time was equally split between sitting in mindless, unnecessary meetings and staring at massive spreadsheets. While I consider myself to now be an expert at manipulating PivotTables and complex Excel macros, I by no means love spreadsheets.
Since it’s a fictitious creation, nobody really knows what a Kraken looks like. But the one thing we can all agree on is that the thing is a gigantic sea monster, and almost certainly has tentacles that it uses to snatch ships and drag them to the bottom of the ocean.
If you ever played any of the Crash Bandicoot games, you’re familiar with the masks that float around the game. The one that offers you help and makes that great “rutabaga” sound effect is called “Aku Aku,” while the bad guy boss is called “Uka Uka.”
You’ve seen the trailer for the latest Terminator movie, now check out these Terminator T-800 hand tankards and split head bookends from Merchoid. The Terminator is back, and this time he’s coming after your wallet.
Both are cast in resin and are hand painted to look like metal.
Check out this jumbo-sized 64 oz. TARDIS Mug. It’s round rather than square which is much better for coffee sipping. Looks odd at first, but the more I see it, the more I like it. Does it hold more coffee inside than it appears?
You know what I love? Cool coffee mugs. You know what I hate? Cool coffee mugs that are ruined only by a square-shaped lip or other weird shape so that your drink all lands on your chest instead of in your mouth.
I have a love-hate relationship with Super Mario Bros. I really like the game, and played it a lot back in the day on my NES. I also died a lot and remain utterly convinced to this day that the game cheated.
Like many of you, I’ve been playing games on Sony PlayStation consoles since the very first generation. I’ve also been drinking coffee for decades – though recent medical issues have forced me to stick to decaf – blah.
Some of the most iconic objects in the history of video games have to be the barrels that Donkey Kong tosses at Jumpman as he climbs girders to rescue his princess. Jumping over those barrels and smashing them with a sledgehammer were the key gameplay mechanics of Nintendo’s breakout arcade game.
Rule the Marvel universe and your morning coffee with something better than an iron fist. This Infinity Gauntlet coffee mug is but one of the cool Avengers: Infinity Wars toys and collectibles that is just now flooding the market since the release of the movie is right around the corner.
Whenever Captain Jean-Luc Picard is stressed out by Q’s antics, or just keeping up with the Cardassians, he needs something to help him keep a clear head. His beverage of choice? Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. Now, you can enjoy the same delightfully soothing beverage as our favorite Starfleet captain does with this mug.
Coffee and video games don’t generally mix. After all, reaching down from your controller in the middle of a game to grab a sip usually results in a nasty mouth burn or hot coffee spilled all over the place.
