Friday Fives: Gift Guide for Geeks

You know it’s that time of year again when the usual hustle and bustle dies down, malls are jam-packed with frantic last minute shoppers and Michael Bublé starts playing on your radio. With exactly one week to go till the holidays, here’s my top five list of cool gifts for the geek in your life.

Xbox One Halo 5 Guardians Console

Give the gamer in your life something that’s both nice to look at and amazing to use thanks to Xbox and 343 Industries. The Xbox One Halo 5 Guardians Console is a wicked piece of gaming technology equipped with a custom designed console and controller inspired by Halo’s Spartan Locke and UNSC technology. Get it today from my favourite retailer, JB-HiFi, for an epic bundle deal which includes some amazing Xbox One titles too. Check it out here:


Goosebumps the Complete Collection (Seasons 1 – 4)


Fancy a ghoulish Christmas? How about a trip down memory lane? This 12 disc box set is the ultimate gift for any Goosebumps fan. Relive some of R.L Stine’s most frightful stories and give yourself, or a special someone a scare this holidays. Purchase this excellent set from my friends at Madman Entertainment. Keep a lookout for a review that I’ll be doing on it soon too! Viewers beware, you’re in for a scare.

With the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War movie coming out next year, this supercharged graphic novel collecting one of Marvel’s  thrilling and gripping storylines will give any comic book fan insight into the events that led to one of the greatest moments in comic book history. Written by Mark Millar (of Nemesis and Wanted fame), this trade paperback edition collects Civil War issues 1 – 7 plus a whole load of extras. Get it now from the coolest monkeys over at Mighty Ape today for all you online shoppers, or head on over to my favourite comic book shop in town, Arkham City Comics, to get that real life buying feel.


Attack on Titan 

Looking for something a bit edgy, exciting and a whole lot of ‘oh my God’ moments, look no further. Attack on Titan is THE anime series of the year. With season 2 releasing early next year, now is the perfect time for the anime fan in you or someone close to you to get stuck into this addictive series. You don’t have to see the movies (yes there are two!) to immerse yourself with all things titans and OMD gear. Head over to Madman Entertainment for some sweet, sweet anime deals! (P.S. they’re having a huge sale right now so get in quick).


Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (only on PlayStation 4)

There’s no doubt that the Uncharted series by Naughty Dog is huge; so much so that a remastered version was created for all those PlayStation geeks who’ve upgraded from their old PlayStation 3 to the heavy hitting champion that is the PlayStation 4. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is perfect for anyone who enjoys a good action/adventure game with interesting plot lines, a smart-mouth leading character and some pretty cool treasure hunting, complete with fight scenes, guns and wild car chases. With more advanced graphics, enjoy all three Uncharted games all over again. This collection contains Drake’s Fortune, Among Theives and Drake’s Deception.  Get it today from Mighty Ape and don’t forget that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be out very soon.


What are you waiting for. Get your holiday gifts sorted this year and let me know what you got the geeks in your lives?
