It's a Very Geeky Christmas


By Jason "loonyboi" Bergman


hat’s right kids…it’s that holiday season time…you know, that time of year when you forget to get everyone their presents until the absolute first minute, and then pray you’ve gotten the right thing. Well, don’t worry your silly little heads…we’ve done all the hard work for you…so sit back, and take a look at what all your geek boy friends want for Christmas…hand selected by our crack staff (er…crack being the key word here).

For your ease, we’ve split this thing up into three easy to digest sections: hardware, software, and toys. In our hardware section, you’ll find our picks for the best (and cheapest) sound and video cards. In the software section, you’ll find our picks for the best games of the year (and not all of them are Half-Life, either!), and in the toys section, you’ll find the best toys (broken down into three price categories).

Happy hunting!
