Nintendo Switch Labo Kits

$69.99 - $79.99 from Amazon »

I think I'll focus on the "+" designation in the Nintendo Labo Robot Kit for Switch's suggested age range of "6+." Both it and the Labo Variety Kit are set to release on April 20, 2018, and even though they're seemingly...

Handheld Oregon Trail Game

$38.95 from Amazon »

I like how the plug for this handheld version of Oregon Trail (best Apple IIGS computer game ever!) is "Learn about the realities of 19th-century pioneer life on the Oregon Trail." Because when I used to play it, learn...

Mattel Classic Football Game Keychain

$11.99 from Perpetual Kid »

Mattel's handheld Classic Football gets sized for even smaller hands in this mini version of the iconic 70s game. Calling it a "keychain" is a bit of a stretch - unless you like stuffing keychains the size of Little Debbie...

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Classic Controllers

$199 from ColorWare »

ColorWare's Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Classic Controllers are pretty fly for a game guy. And also pretty pricey for a paint job. I don't care how precise and professional the controllers look, or how hard their red retro...

Vanguard Personal Gaming Environment

$342.99 - $379.99 from Amazon »

GAEMS calls its Vanguard a "premier Personal Gaming Environment (PGE)" and I hope they're right because to me it just looks like a TV screen and some speakers built into a briefcase. To give them the benefit of the doubt...

Teslasuit - Full-Body Haptic Suit

$1,100 - $3,665 from Teslasuit »

Immersion - Gamer Rage Headset

My 13-year-old nephew has had gamer rage for, like, 5 years now. Oh man, he used to get SO MAD when the levels got harder in Super Mario Galaxy. Sometimes, if he knew he was about to die, he'd pause the game, hurl the...

PrioVR - Wearable Game Controller

As predicted, probably by Nostradamus and Back to the Future II (but not the Mayans because they thought we'd be dead by now), 2014 is shaping up to be the year of virtual reality. As the buzz around the Oculus Rift VR...
