Heads up nerds! I’m back with another radioactively cool addition to your personal chill-out shelter. See what I did there?
I present, Fallout snow globes. When I first saw these, they jumped to the front of the line in the “I MUST HAVE IT!” department of my brain. If you’re a fan of the Fallout video game franchise, you’re gonna want one (or more) of these little gems on your shelf.
What’s up nerds? In my quest to eventually be crowned the “Martha Stewart of Nerd Cave Decor,” I thought I’d put up a quick post showcasing a recent addition to the wall in my personal A.O. (“Area of Operations”).
LevelUp PlayStation Edge Controller and Game Storage Tower
So, we’re de-cluttering the Nerd Cave this week. Here’s another great find to help you do the same.
If I had a dollar for every time my son asked, “Hey Dad, where’s the PlayStation controller?”, I’d have at least enough to buy a copy of BioShock Infinite. If you have a seven year old, you know they aren’t famous for putting things back in their place.
Enter the Level Up PlayStation Edge Controller and Game Storage Tower. Phewww. That’s a mouthful. Found it on Amazon for 38 bucks. Two days later (thanks Prime), it arrived at the Cave. Went together easily despite some low-star reviews from people who apparently struggle with putting the cap on a pen.
The tower holds 38 games (either PS2 or 3 sized cases) and two wireless controllers. As you can see from my high quality photography, it looks great in the corner and now my little man will never again have to panic when he wants to fire up Lego Batman.
Copyright 2013 It Came From The Nerd Cave
Yesterday, while killing some time before heading to the theater to see Oz The Great and Powerful, the Nerd Cave Family pulled into the local antique mall. You probably have at least one in your town. The massive steel building crammed from floor to ceiling with junk, treasures, and everything in between. Like most, this particular store is made up of dozens (if not hundreds) of booths belonging to dealers of everything under the sun. If you’ve ever been to one, you know that one person’s definition of “antique” or “collectable” is often much different from yours.
If you’ve read more than a few of my posts, you’ve probably noticed that I tend to be a bit nostalgic when it comes to the playthings of my youth. Usually, when I acquire something from that time of my life, I feel validated that I have pretty good taste. But occasionally, like an old girlfriend, the memory of something turns out to be a whole lot better than the reality. Case in point is my recent acquisition of a “vintage” Atari 5200 video game system.
