When your friends come over for drinks and need to put them down on your coffee table, what do you do?  Well, you put coasters down right? Absolutely!




Why not use some of these to show that you mean business in the video arcades. This set of Arcade Button Coasters should do the trick!   Just keep an eye on everyone if they have a bit too much to drink, as some giant button mashing may occur!

I have to admit I’m obsessed with Tetris, and I play it on my phone to and from work each day.  It’s such a great game to keep mentally active with.   So I was intrigued to discover that EA has now released a new version of Tetris for iOS which doesn’t replace the current version, but  is actually a whole new download/purchase!  So what’s new in this one?  Well, besides the graphics, there’s a new one-touch game mode which allows you to automatically plant bricks on the screen.

Now here’s a hoodie I could see myself wearing!  And it’s a great way of chucking Pac-Man into the mix. If the picture is too small to see the writing, it says Omnomnomagon underneath Pac-Man.  Pac-man is after all a shape, rather like a pizza with a slice missing, so Omnomnomagon is quite appropriate on a few levels! :D

Mario, Kirby, Metroid, Zelda, and Donkey Kong all have something in common, but it’s not just that they’re all Nintendo IP’s, they’re  also the most popular ones to have spawned numerous games over the decades. Kid Icarus is another Nintendo IP which has spawned some cool games, but sadly hasn’t received the kind of attention the others have.  However, with the release of the 3DS, all that should now hopefully change. Not only is there going to be a new Kid Icarus 3D game for the Nintendo 3DS console, but also the original Kid Icarus game on the NES will be coming out as a “3D Classic”.
