Article Last Minute Gift Ideas: Classic Cartridge Soaps

By Jake Young / via Firebox / December 5, 2013

In the leadup to Christmas (and the chaotic wake of Thanksgiv-ukkah) we wanted to do a series highlighting some fun, cheapish items you can pick up for your geek-minded friends, loved ones, and non-threatening coworkers. 

 

Last Minute Gift Ideas: Classic Cartridge Soaps

 

Have you ever wanted to feel nostalgic while wet and naked? Because that dream can now be a reality. 

Lovingly molded by UK-based soapers Game Odour, we were shocked by how realistic these cartridge soaps looked in these photos. No really, we actually entertained the idea that they just sudsed-up some old SNES carts for what we can only imagine was "the most pointless deception ever concieved by human minds".

Article The Dorklyst: The 10 Merriest Santa Claus Cameos in Videogame History

"You better not pout, you better not cry, you better watch out, I'm tellin' you why: Santa Claus is comin' to town." – Old Klingon Proverb

The original morality motivator – way before Bioware got their grubby fingers all over it – was Santa Claus. If you were good, you were rewarded. If you were bad, you weren't (well, at least in theory. Reality: if your parents have money, you get good stuff. If not, you are consumed by a guilt complex that assumes a bearded man in the North Pole has judged you unworthy of gifts). So – it makes sense he would pop up every now and then in videogames. And here are the 10 merriest cameos by Ol' Saint Nick in videogame history.

10. Secret of Mana

Remember when Square games used to be fun? Not just technically-accomplished and engaging, but weird and fun and goofy? This attitude could probably best be exemplified by their output on the Super Nintendo – most notably the Secret of Mana. Halfway through the game you fight Frost Gigas – who, it turns out, is actually Santa Claus, who transformed into the evil being because children no longer believed in him (also he tried to grow a magic, big Christmas tree). So believe in Santa, kids, otherwise we'll have to deal with a frozen demon monstrosity who's really into Arbor Day.
