• I remember shoveling a whole bunch of quarters into the X-Men arcade game back in the day; my friend Mike and I beat the game as Nightcrawler and Wolverine. If you have an Xbox fan in your life, they too can fight the Blob, Magneto and more in side-scrolling action, as the game will be available on Xbox Live Arcade Dec. 15. The PlayStation Network, unfortunately, won’t get it until February, so you’ll have to find something else this holiday season for the PS3 fan in your life. Joy to the world! The game will hit the PlayStation Network Dec. 14!
Looking for a high-quality stocking stuffer for that special comics fan on your shopping list? Jessica McLeod, creator of the comics Mungo Bean and Working Class Elf, may have just the thing for you. She’s put together two goodie bags based on her minicomics. Each package comes with a hand-screenprinted soft toy, comic, badge and gift bag. They both sell for $18 and different patterns are available for the back of the plush toy. Check out McLeod’s Esty site for more details.
