So it’s that time of the year…it’s the holidays! Time for gift giving AND receiving! If you’re like us sometimes you can be overwhelmed with all of the geeky goodness that’s saturated the market. Maybe your a parent desperately trying to find that last minute gift but have no friggin’ clue where to start. We’re here for you…Seriously. So lets begin, hopefully we have a decent chunk of awesomeness here for everyone. Maybe you become inspired by something you didn’t know existed, maybe you think we missed something. If so add it in the comments!
We are going to break this down into multiple sections, this should help if there is a detailed section you want to check out! Links will be posted on certain items!
Video Games – Well…duh. These can be found at any retail store, if they are in stock 🙂
Fallout 4 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – An amazing post-nuke open world. This will take many hours to explore and get everything out of the game. Possible Game of the Year!
Mario Maker (Wii U) – A fun Mario game that puts YOU in control. Create your own Mario levels to destroy friendships!
Lego Dimensions (PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U) – Jump into multiple Lego universes including; Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Doctor Who, and the Simpsons! *WARNING* The base game does not come with these extra packs. You will have to purchase extra content to play those universes.
Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U) – An awesome RPG if you’re into JRPG’s. Very pretty!
The Witcher 3 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – A fantasy based open world RPG. This game is amazing! Another possible Game of the Year!
Playstation Plus or Xbox Live pre-paid cards (Represented by either system) – These cards are needed to be able to play online multiplayer games. Available in different month increments. Your gamer will love you! You get a perk of getting free games each month with either system.
Steam, League of Legends, or Smite (PC Gaming) – Have a PC gamer in your life? They would love you if you got them some pre-paid cards. Steam has literally hundreds of thousands of games and even a in game marketplace where gamers can buy items for their favorite games! League of Legends and Smite are competitive MOBA games. They have their own in game currency to buy items. I’d check and see if they play either. Usually gamer only stick one of those games.
Geeky Presents – Here is a list of great geeky items that any one with a hint of nerd would love!
Jerky XP (http://jerkyxp.com/) – Sweet…sweet meat. Delicious high quality Jerky for gamers! Multiple flavors for every gamer! I can vouch from experience. Also use discount code ‘gameoctane‘ and get a sweet 10% discount at checkout!!
SquidGrip (PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One http://squidgrip.com/) – I was a little skeptical of these when I first heard of them..A padding you can add that makes the controller comfortable and help your controller from getting sweaty?? I will 100% say that the hype is real. They are pretty bad ass. Not bad to install as you just stick them to your controller!
RD-D2 Charger (https://www.thinkgeek.com/product/11f0/?pfm=HP_TopCMD_11f0) – He fits in a cup holder, his head rotates and beeps?!?!? Click the link and watch the video!
Lego Wall-E (http://shop.lego.com/en-US/WALL-E-21303?p=21303&track=checkprice) – Lego Wall-E…ITS LEGO FRICKING WALL-E! Its a 7x6x6 inch Wall-E made from 676 pieces. It looks epic and it includes a Lego Plant.
Raspberry PI 2 (https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-2-model-b/) – Its a microcomputer that’s under $40. What does it do? More like what cant it do. If your into coding, you can do anything! If your not a coder there are multiple OS’s you can install. For example make it an emulator to play all of your old retro games. Load Kodi or Plex on it and have it a network media player.
Self-Balancing Hoverboards (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_5_15?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=self+balancing+hoverboard&sprefix=self+balancing+%2Caps%2C220) – These have been blowing up. Zip around without looking weird like you’re driving a segway. No handles and a top speed of around 10MPH depending on what model.
Trinity Gaming PC (https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/LandingPages/Trinity/) – A triforce like PC case design..Look at it. LOOK AT IT. Its beautiful. May have a bigger footprint, but how can you say no to that look?
3D Plus Me (http://superawesomeme.com/events.php) If your anywhere near any of those stores in the link, you can get an action figure made with YOUR face on it. You can be Iron man or a baseball star!
