    Hastings (if you have one in your area) usually has all sorts of gaming related stuff. Also, T-shirts and posters are inexpensive gifts too, and there are websites out there that will print things for you too. For instance you could always get them a custom-made bumper sticker or maybe throw a meme on a T-shirt.

    I looked up that Final Fantasy art book. It's $500... That's a bit much for a christmas gift.

    The Amazon listing I link to is $56.30. What are you looking at?
  • JMarsella09 - November 26, 2013 3:58 p.m.

    Ah, well I look foolish now... I was looking at the boxed set...

    Man those gifts are to die for!!! If I was rich, I would buy them all and send some to GamesRadar :3

    I have both the Pac-Man alarm clock and the Pac-Man stress ball but I need to get my paws on that Pac-Man stapler!

    Bought all three of the Link Medicom statues in Super Potatoe this summer. I really reccomend them as decorations for Zelda fans. They are really high quality figures and look really cool without being too overwhelming for non-gaming guests.

    Heh, I bought all the Mario ones there too in September. You go to the one in Akiba?
  • Unoriginal - November 27, 2013 11:12 a.m.

    Yup. Second week of august. Left there with an SNES, Link to the Past, Mario All-Stars, Act-Raiser and Mother 2. Even got the high score on the Metal Slug arcade machine upstairs next to the Liquid Snake statue. I know they probably reset the machines daily or something but I like to believe that it's still there :P Only reason I knew about the shop was actually because you mentioned it on a LaserTime episode a year and a half ago. Thanks for that, by the way.

    It has become pretty famous abroad I'd say. I'm curious just what the percentage of foreigners they get per day there.

    I was expecting...a bit more... I'm not a Nintendo fan it felt a bit like an overdose with all those Nintendo figures. I would have liked to have seen a bit more variety. It all seems just a tad bit stereotypical. Where's the game soundtracks? The custom joysticks? The posters? And yeah, I'm starting to get really sick of the Nintendo overdose. But hey, Nintendo sure is popular sure I guess that stuff sells...

    Sweet. I think I will nab that Link Plush for my son for Xmas. I'd love to have that Dark Souls art book for myself as well. No mention of Hyrule Historia? It's amazing, and Zelda fan would love it.

    I'm been meaning to get a proper mechanical keyboard for a while now. Seems a lot of places recommend K70. Never tried cherry MX switches before and so eager to try them out x_x. Can't really have blues as i kinda have to be aware of how much sound i'm making so looking into the reds! Also i totally need to get one of those plushies.
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - December 13, 2013 3:54 p.m.

    Having used just about every type of mechanical board out there, I'd HIGHLY recommend going with either red switches (the K70) or browns (Logitech's G710+). Red's are the least clicky, though some find them to feel a bit too mushy when pressed. Browns are a good compromise; they have a bit more of a click to them, but aren't very loud. I use both of those boards on a regular basis and am incredibly happy with both. IF I could use blues, I'd be using a Black Widow.
  • Talvari - December 13, 2013 4:10 p.m.

    Thanks for the reply :D The only concern i'd have with reds is typing to people on them and it being weird or mushy like you put it xD. I think my currents keys are rubber dome, is it possible to put into words how rubber dome compares to reds in terms of typing? I'm definitely going to look both the keyboards you recommended as i've heard about them both from multiple sources...can't be a bad thing!
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - December 13, 2013 5:19 p.m.

    When I say "mushy," I'm basically referring to a rubber-dome feel. Reds are a bit smoother than domes, if that makes any sense. It's a tad difficult to describe, but they feel very similar to what you're used to. You'll only start noticing a big difference once you switch to browns or blues.
  • Talvari - December 13, 2013 5:53 p.m.

    Oh wow, a smoother rubber dome is actually exactly what I imagine I would love. Maybe I'll get a couple of brown / blues as extras so I can test them as well...Thanks again for the info!!
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - December 13, 2013 8:16 p.m.

    Hey, no problem! Just so you know, the switches aren't something you can actually change out. Whichever board you buy, you're stuck with whichever switches they come with.
