In case you have never really thought about it before (I know I hadn’t before seeing this shirt), Pac-Man is a Ghostbuster.  Of course he doesn’t use all of the fancy equipment that the real Ghostbusters use and he doesn’t have to worry about crossing the streams, but in this awesome t-shirt he does!

The nerdy folks over at BustedTees are selling this really cool Ghostbuster Pac-Man t-shirt called Ghost Catcher for just $20 (available for both men and women)!  If there is a better way to show show off your love for both Pac-man and the Ghostbusters franchise than to wear this shirt, I want to see it because I don’t think it exists!  I think this might just be one of the coolest mash-up shirts of all time!

The only thing that would make you cooler while wearing this would be to wear a speaker on your hip at the same time playing the Ghostbusters theme song.  Actually, I think I might do just that because it sounds so awesome!

When there is something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?  Pac-man!

Are you tired of being cold while you sit on the couch playing video games?  Then I have the perfect remedy for you!  You should be snuggling up with a Pac-man fleece blanket!  Nothing says I take my retro video games seriously while staying warm at the same time quite like a Pac-man blanket!

This awesome folks over at 80sTees are selling this amazing Pac-man fleece blanket for only $10!  That seems like an absolute steal for a fleece blanket that looks like a game of Pac-man!

I should admit that the blanket does sound a little small at 50″ X 60″, but as long as you are curled up it should still fit you just fine unless you the size of the Big Show or something.  Actually, the smaller size would make it perfect for kids too!

After posting the gingerbread TARDIS and gingerbread Millennium Falcon among a few others, I have kind of felt like the video game side of things has kind of been left out of the gingerbread fun this year.  Well, at least the Portal fans will be happy with this amazing gingerbread Companion Cube!

DeviantART user IrkenIdiot is the Portal loving gamer that made this awesome looking gingerbread Companion Cube.  You can find all of the details on just how they made it over on DeviantART including a link to the icing recipe that they used which doesn’t sound appetizing at all.

If you want to see more gingerbread video game awesomeness, I suggest checking out the Super Mario gingerbread castle I posted last year.

It has been quite a while since I have had the opportunity to play chess, but even since I was a kid, it has always been one of my favorite board games (behind Monopoly).  Unlike a lot of board games, chess doesn’t take a big chunk of time to play and most people are familiar with it so you don’t have to take forever explaining all of the intricacies of how to play the game.

One of the other things I have also loved since I was a kid is Batman.  Well it seems somebody decided those to needed to collide and the result was this epic Batman Chess board!

The clearly awesome folks over at The Noble Collection are selling this insanely awesome Batman chess board for $795.  I will admit that is a lot of money to drop on a chess set (more than I could justify) but this is definitely one of the coolest chess sets ever made!

This Batman chess set not only looks cool, it has 50 LEDs surrounding the board to give it some cool lighting.  Not only that, the Batsignal projects up from the city onto the ceiling (which is probably the coolest feature).

The Joker, Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin battle Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Commissioner Gordon in this epic game of chess.  The pieces also measure up to 5 1/2″ tall!  That is huge!

If you love Batman, Chess and you have $800 burning a whole in your wallet, I would suggest you get this!

If you are like me, you don’t have the room to set up your old Super Nintendo and generally just can’t be bothered with the effort of setting it up when your computer or phone or gaming handheld can run a SNES emulator with very little effort.  Well, if you don’t mind using an emulator but still kind of want that old SNES feel, now you can play your emulated SNES games with a USB SNES controller.

The nostalgic gamers over at ThinkGeek are selling this SNES USB controller for $19.99 (on sale from the usual $29.99 so 33% off).  Its not an official Nintendo SNES controller, but it still looks just like it and it works on emulators for both Windows and Mac.  The best part is that no drivers are required!

I will probably order one of these myself for some holiday SNES gaming because the USB controller I have is rather large for my hands (think original Xbox size controller) and I could really use something a little smaller.  Having something that looks and feels like the real thing would be nice too.

Thanks to all of the fantastic games that have come out recently, I haven’t got around to finishing the first Borderlands game so I could start on Borderlands 2, but maybe with the holidays coming up, I will finally have some time to get that accomplished.  In the meantime, I can always enjoy stunning Borderlands 2 cosplay like these Lilith cosplay pictures below!

The beautiful woman sporting this spectacular Borderlands 2 Lilith cosplay is DeviantART user Nebulaluben and the photographer is Jesus Clares.

I am amazed at how well the clothing (and body paint) capture the visual style of the Borderlands games.  I find the eyes quite fascinating as well although the last picture scares me as it looks like it was a rather dangerous picture to take.

If you cant get enough Lilith cosplay, check out the great Lilith Borderlands 2 cosplay I posted over on my other site, Fanboy Fashion.
