Swag

I'm not the type of guy that has action figures lying about the house; my He-Man and Thundercats figures are up in the attic safely gathering dust for their revival in a younger generations' hands. But I'm real tempted to get...
What better way to celebrate your love of Mega Man than wearing this odd, neon green lanyard around your neck? Or something like that. You can pre-order the lanyard here for the fairly pricey $9.95, and you'll also ...
[Offbeat Hall of Fame is a showcase of the cool, often bizarre products and media from years past that celebrate videogames and gamer culture.] Have you picked up your copy of the final Nintendo Power yet? Looking through it ...
I'm not sure what it is with Dishonored and masks, but I like the trend and potential for awesome cosplay. These paper masks (via Super Punch) for the game are simultaneously funny and downright terrifying. While Bethesda wil...
No sooner had I put the finishing touches on the upcoming review for Darksiders II than this ... thing arrived. I would like you all to serve as witnesses in the event of my disappearance, because I am fairly certain this can...
Good timing! Having just heard quite a lot from Jim about the current status of Aliens: Colonial Marines, PAX East attendees will have the opportunity to try the game out for themselves. On top of this and Hell Yeah! Wrath of...
Did you know that Rhythm Heaven Fever was getting a special edition? Neither did I. Then I got this box in the mail this morning. I'm pretty sure that this special edition won't be sold in stores, but if Nintendo decides to change its mind on that, they're sure to make a killing when the game hits stores on February 13th. Check out the video and you'll understand what I mean.
[Update: Contest over! Winner is OverEZ!] Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and salutations December 25! Today marks the last of the 25 Days of Giving. We've given thousands of dollars worth of stuff over the course of the mont...
When this turned up and I opened the package, my wife said, "They sent you a lunchbox? You're an asshole." That's a fair enough assessment, I suppose.  Anyway, I got this mad tat in the mail today. It's a steel box conta...
It was Jak & Daxter's tenth anniversary on December 4, and Sony decided to commemorate it by sending me a Precursor Orb today. This is a limited edition replica of the artifact, found in the Jak & Daxter series, ...
In a rather strange, although not at all surprising move, CafePress has announced it's new partnership with Microsoft to bring your very own Xbox Live Avatar to life on various gear. CafePress has always been an online retail...
... At filling my desk up with all sorts of free stuff. Step up your game, Activision! In all seriousness, I promise you that I did not let any swag inflate my Battlefield 3 review score.
Publishers send some weird things that mostly just clutter up my office (especially at this time of the year, this room looks like I've just moved with all the boxes). At least with this Lollipop Chainsaw Halloween bag, I can...
Update 2: Winners announced!  In first place we have: GundamCat, mdh777, Vincio09, and Jake Wesorick.  (Corrections pending, duplicates are being double-checked).  Congratulations, your suggestions won the...
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Kirby's Return to Dreamland cake pops! They're so cute!  Far too cute to eat, right?  I mean, I should freeze these forever and crawl into the freezer every night to hang out...
I love Nintendo's AR cards and the games that use them, but there's nothing pretty about any of the ones that come with the 3DS. Now, everything is pretty when it comes to upcoming 3DS game Bravely Default. Even the AR card i...
