Hallmark presents Galaga arcade ornament


While Hallmark is a giant, soulless, holiday creating corporation there are sometimes benefits to their existence. For instance their ornament selection is vast. If you're interested in it you can pretty much get it in ornament form from Hallmark; that includes retro gaming. This year Hallmark has introduced a Galaga arcade cabinet ornament for your Christmas tree decorating enjoyment. 

It doesn't just hang, though. This thing is a fully interactive ornament that plays the new game theme from Galaga and makes the bleeps and bloops -- as tipster Michael B. described them -- from the exploding of alien ships. Plus, there are lights! You can actually check out video and sound of it over at the Hallmark site. It's a little pricey at $18.50 (I think, I don't actually know the going price for ornaments), but if your tree needs more gaming love then this is a good way to go, unless you've already bought the Blue Shell ornament or something from our Christmas Gift Guide.

See, there's an upside to the millions of dollars companies like Hallmark have.
