I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping yet. That wouldn’t be a problem if I still did the brick-and-mortar thing, but I’ve gone completely digital. Thus, I am at the mercy of the combined forces of the United States Postal Service and FedEx. I don’t always emerge victorious.
The rest of you bums might want to hit up Fangamer and check out some the new stuff they’ve got available. The big item of the moment is Version 2 of the Mother 3 Handbook, the companion literature to that one game of which people totally bought a physical copy and didn’t just download a ROM and install a translation patch. I scored myself a copy of this when I went to PAX East last year, but this new edition sports new illustrations and is available in hardcover.
Then there are some pimpin’ shirts like the Zelda-inspired “Mysticeti” and “Fabled Blade,” the FFVI-inspired “Runic Nouveau,” and the SNES-themed “Gaming Loop.” There are also restocks of items like the E-Mug, the stress-tested Mega Man coffee commander. Check ’em out and see if you can cross a few undeserving names off your shopping list.
