Christmas shopping? Try these stores
So you quit buying your gift at the last minute, right? That’s okay, because in this wretched, mysterious future we’re in, it’s never been easier to buy things! On the other hand, choosing what to get has never been more difficult – especially since everyone seems to have bought everything they could possibly want at the recent Black Friday Sale.
But never fear: We’ve rounded up a small selection of computer game-related gifts below, and at the time of writing, it has been announced that they have all arrived just before Christmas in Australia. We tried to avoid digital games, and went very hard to a one-time novelty that we hope will make the person on the receiving end feel a little special.
Without further ado:
