Do you have a geek wish list? I do. It's an ongoing thing, and it never ends. How could it? With so many geeky movies, shows, and toys coming out on the reg, it's a great time to be a geek. It's also a great time to be a collector geek. Which I am. I mean, I don't have as much swag floating around as I'd like. It's impossible to have as much swag as you want when you have family responsibilities like kids, pets, mortgages, and all that other stuff that makes adulting so boring. BUT the list is there, and ever growing.
I was watching the Avengers: Infinity War trailer for the fifty millionth time the other day, looking for Easter eggs and hints as any good geek would, and I realized something. So many Pops are going to come out of this. Which lead me to think about Marvel. Which led to me think about video games. Which lead to me just thinking about everything swag-related–and then it hit me. Tax season is coming, and I'm pretty sure I'm getting a refund. So what exactly would I buy if that refund came through? While, I'd like to answer “everything,” I feel like I should probably be a BIT more reserved, because, you know. Adulting.
The Ultimate GameStop Geek Wish List
My purveyor of choice for all things geeky is GameStop. I've been shopping at GameStop since before they–or anyone else, for that matter–were doing online anything. Many a time, I've strolled up and down their quasi-aisles between bins and displays filled with games, collectibles, and clothes. I've traded in my fair share of stuff to them. I've bought MORE than my fair share of stuff from them. It's just a way of life for me.
Since they have a rewards program, they've cemented my desire to stick with them. So, when I started thinking about all the anime, superhero, and video game things that rattle around in my head, the first thing I did was head to their website. Because all they do is geek, everything is right there, which is a big plus for me.
If you know me, you know I'm a gamer. I have been since my days of playing Super Mario and Duck Hunt. I fell in love the day I set out on a quest to save Princess Toadstool, and I've never looked back. The first thing I think of when I think of what I might spend my tax refund on is video games, namely the Nintendo Switch.
Some of my most wanted games for the switch are:
- Shining Resonance Refrain
- Xenoblade Chronicles 2
- Super Bomberman R
- Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition
Speaking of rounding out gaming, I'd also need to pick up Kingdom Hearts 1/5 + 2.5 Remix. It's a complete repackaging of all the Kingdom Hearts that came before it, allowing me to enjoy the entire franchise in one game. Sweet.
Honorable mentions on my PS4 wishlist include:
- Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto
- Secret of Mana
- Sword Art Online Fatal Bullet
- Horizon Zero Dawn: COMPLETE EDITION
- Dungeons II
I don't have an Xbox One, but some of its games are making me seriously consider getting one. Some of the ones that have my interest piqued are:
- Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite
- Kingdom Come Deliverance
Pops! I'm a Pop fiend, so they definitely pop (see what I did there) into my head when I think about what I might spend my tax refund on. As I write this, I'm surrounded by a sea of Pops! They just make me happy. And like chips, you can't have just one. Some of the ones on my list of must-gets are:
- Demogorgon (6 inch)
- Attack on Titan – Female Titan (6 inch)
- Bleach Rukia
- The Lord of the Rings – Balrog (6 inch)
- Star Wars: Yoda
I freaking love letting my geek flag fly, and I do that by wearing my favorite geek stuff whenever I can, wherever I can. GameStop has a metric ton of geeky apparel, so I'm always on the lookout for new swag. Hey, I'm geeky, and I'm proud of it, and that's not a bad thing anymore. We geeks have taken over the world, so I think it's only right that people should see what a humongous geek I am when we cross paths. Some of my favorites are:
- Dragon Ball FighterZ Goku Black Tee
- Attack on Titan Chibi Tee
- Pokemon Winter Sweater Tee
- Deadpool Space Dye Hoodie
- Legend of Zelda Be Prepared Tee
- Nintendo Controller Grey and Red Hat
- Marvel Comic Aop Black and White Hat
- Star Wars BB8 Beanie
