DS Daily: Game gear


We often post about game clothing and gear, because most of the time, we want it. Still, that doesn't mean we necessarily buy anything. How about you? Do you have any game related shirts, hats, scarves, shoes, jewelry, or anything of the kind? If so, tell us what you've got. We'll try not to be too jealous.

Well,

I've got a number of "Zelda" related articles of clothing. Mostly all of it was purchased through "Nintendo Power," but I do one that I won by finding the "Princess" in a bag of fruit snacks. My mom still remembers being unsure of sending it in when I found it because she thought it just looked like a pink blob, but sure enough it's what the nice people wanted and I got a shirt with Link on one side. Other items are baseball caps and shirts, mostly.

Later,

manaman

I have a Pac-Man inspired shirt that says "I got game" in a pac-man-ey font, which I'm wearing right now :x I also have a matching pair of pac-man socks (there's a little plush pacman on each ankle, like tennis socks!). I have two Nintendo shirts. One's from Nintendo World, it's the pink 'Princess' shirt (somehow destroyed itself in the wash), and one with a print of a Nintendo controller that says "I am In Control". They're mostly relegated to weekend wear, unless I'm doing something that very acutely relates to gaming.

I've had a number of gaming-related T-shirts in the past, but I think currently all I have is a "GAME OVER" (in that old Namco/Nintendo font) t-shirt from Thinkgeek and a shirt.woot.com t-shirt with a blue ghost, made up of smaller blue ghosts, that reminded the person who gave it to me of Pac-Man. I also have a Penny Arcade FF2000 shirt, which is at least gaming-related-related.

I have a bunch more on my various wish lists, but they usually lose out to nerdier ones ("sudo make me a sandwich" probably being my favorite.)

I guess I'll start with the homemade Mario hats I wear on a regular basis. I've been rocking my Fireball Mario one for 2 years now. I've got the NES controller belt buckle, the real controller, not the metal one, I have 3 King of Games zelda shirts, the Mario cartridge Terell Terell shirt and the Controller Jacket as well. More nintendo shirts than i can fit in my drawers, most from the Nintendo World Store, but a few from Hot topic and a few i could only find on ebay. I've got my Link, Fireball Mario, and Megaman costumes lying around the apartment, and I'm currently working on a pair of silver overalls for Metal Mario. I keep arguing with myself over whether or not I'm actually going to by those friggin sneakers, and i have the Controller Backpack, wallet, cd case, wii skins, you get the picture. Do my bo-bomb and mushroom candy things get counted here too, or are we just talking clothing? So I'm a bit obsessed, this is my team. Oh yeah, and I have the Super Mario zip hoodie from the terell line as well.

Uh, I've got a Zelda shirt that just has Link's insignia from his shield on it. Discreetly nerdy, that's how I am. Sean, I salute you for your dedication to Nintendo.

I've got a pack of Phoenix Wright playing cards. All of my shirts related to games were stolen. Makes me frowny face D:

I actually don't. I had stuff as a kid, some assorted Nintendo hats and a Pokemon shirt I got for free. Now though most video game related apparel that I see and like is simply overpriced.

Bleh, I hated my Game Gear. Barely over 2 hours from 6 AA cells, what a joke.

When I played mine, I was always tethered to the wall via the AC adapter, XD hardly portable.

I remember mom packing me an insane amount of batteries for family/school trips. Such is the price to have the kid sit in the backseat and be quiet.

I got a Zelda tshirt when I went to NYC a year and a month ago. It's got two crossed swords on, with 4 shields in the gaps. It's pretty class, but for some ridiculous reason, this 'Medium' shirt is big enough for two men twice my size to wear... at the same time.

Also have a black shirt buried somewhere that has a picture of Samus on it, as well as the text, 'I am Samus'. I don't wear it too often.

Nothing else in the way of clothing (unless you count a Nintendo Fusion Tour shirt, but... God, those bands SUCKED), but I do have the PW Fanbook (AKA, 'Gyakuten Saiban Fanbukku').

Nothing direct. I have a shirt that pays homage to Space Invaders, which I got from woot.com, and four Game & Watch keychains I found at Fry's over Christmas. I wouldn't mind that scarf in the post if it could decide which color it wanted to be.

Also, I too thought this post was going to be about the Sega Game Gear :\

I don't have any game related stuff right now. I used to have Pac-Man bed sheets as a kid. I think my folks got them at the Goodwill.

I always look and drool, but *SIGH*, I've been unemployed for a while, so it's a choice of eating and gaming/game related stuff. I can't wait to start my new job.

I've got a shirt that says "(little Mario) + (mushroom) = (big Mario)." I'm pretty proud of it.
Also, my ringtone is the Mario Bros. theme, my text ring is the Zelda "you found something good!" noise, and I've got a Pacman wallpaper. Needless to say, I silence it at work.

You silence your wallpaper at work? ...

i have a bunch of (mostly nintendo related) apparel. My favorite piece, and the one i wear almost every day, is my green Zelda track jacket. its good to layer with, it works by itself in the spring... the thing is just so damn versatile. And it shows my inner geek.

I'm currently designing a few shirts for a small website around the Intellivision running-man (see avatar). I'm excited about that.

I have exactly three game related items I bought...none of them related to any Nintendo games...all related to EQ2, my MMO of choice these days. Two of those are related to in-game stuff, one is a guild mug and the other is a t-shirt advertising an in-game tavern. The last is a journal I bought from SOE to keep game notes in.

I DO have some freebie game stuff, mainly from fast food kiddie's meals. My Luigi on a cloud that rolls is probably my favorite :)
