Custom Whac-A-Mole Game Can be Outfitted with Your X-Girlfriend’s Head, Includes Remote Controlled Doors

While I’d be hard pressed to spend $35,000 on this Whac-A-Mole game – yes, that is the actual asking price – there is no disputing its awesomeness. With the doors closed, the Whac-A-Mole Game looks like an everyday bookshelf cabinet.  But with the push of a button, a on remote no less,…

This Restoration Foosball Table is $4,000, Will Probably Survive a Nuclear Attack

This holiday you could treat your kids with a Foosball table that might last the better part of the winter.  That is assuming of course your rugrats are sugar crazed maniacs who have a tendency to destroy all toys, boards games, and anything fragile in your their path.  Or you…

Mike Tyson’s Punch-out!! Encyclopedia is a Must Have Coffee Table Book (pics)

Children from the late 70s and earlier 80s won’t think twice about this book’s $125 price tag.  After all, it does celebrate one of the most iconic boxers and video game systems of all time.

iCade Jr.

iCade Jr.

The iCade was a smash hit as soon as the vaporware piece of kit hit the webosphere.  Such a big hit in fact, that the product became reality thanks to Thinkgeek and ION Audio.  Well, as they say, all good things come in pairs.  The iCade Jr. is a miniaturized…

Mini Controllers Are Coming Back Like The 80’s, But In A Good Way

Mini Controllers Are Coming Back Like The 80’s, But In A Good Way

I’m the only person I know who liked the original Xbox controllers. Known comically as the Duke, Microsoft’s original design was one I thought, and in some ways still believe to be the best controller in terms of size. It just happened to be the most comfortable controller for me.…

ThinkGeek JOYSTICK-IT Sticks To Any Tablet, Adds Tactile Gaming (video)

Just when we thought Fling could stand alone as the only tactile gaming controller for the iPad and other tablet computers, Thinkgeek goes and tosses out the JOYSTICK-IT.

Bulletstorm Holiday Nutcracker

Bulletstorm Holiday Nutcracker
