7 Upcoming PC Games That Will Define 2017

The popularity of gaming in this day and age is at an all-time high. Hundreds of videogames are released every year across multiple platforms, each one vying for the attention of a consumer base that’s already quite spoiled for choice. But if it’s high definition graphics and top-notch performance that you seek, PC gaming still offers the best way of experiencing videogames at their finest.

When chosing a game, be sure to always check a game’s classification before you buy it, as some games will be inappropriate for children due to their graphic nature. What’s more, reading some reviews online will help you get an idea about the quality of the game itself, thus helping you make a more informed purchasing decision.

That being said, let’s take a closer look at some of the games that are bound to have a huge impact in 2017:

Mass Effect: Andromeda
As far as AAA games are concerned, there are few more hotly-awaited titles than this upcoming game from Bioware, which looks set to continue the franchise’s complex depiction of interplanetary travel. Since this is Mass Effect we’re talking about, you can expect an epic game filled with lots of interesting alien species and plenty of hard choices. Release date: March 23rd 2017.

Retro Gaming Shadow Boxes

We’re not going to get all poetic about how awesome retro games are, just because it’s pretty obvious (if you’re above a certain age) that they are. And it’s not just about playing the games, but also the aesthetic that grips us. That’s why we like these amazing shadow boxes by Etsy seller GlitchArtwork. They’re very reasonably priced between $25 and $75, and some of the Super Nintendo ones even come with the cartridge in the display. With titles like Pong, Ghosts and Ghouls, Street Fighter II, Mega Man and more, you’ll be able to deck out your living space in style for very little money.

Kitchen Tool Turns Radishes Into Super Mario Mushrooms

It’s never easy to get a kid to eat radishes. I know I never touched the darn things and now as an adult I still have trouble. Maybe if my parents would have had access to this “Ravanello – Radish Shaper”, I might’ve been fooled into thinking if I ate enough of the disgusting roots I might gain some kind of super power, like my hero Mario. It makes it fairly easy to turn a boring radish into an exact replica of a Super Mario Mushroom. There’s a fair amount of work involved in creating the edible props, as you can see in the image after the break. But it’s a cool utensil nonetheless and at $19, it’s priced just right.

Poke Ball Serving Bowl Set

jgpo_poke_ball_serving_bowl_set

Pokemon is all the rage these days, but will it still be relevant in a few months? Is the rage even as ragey as it was when it was first released? We can’t answer those questions, we don’t know, but we do wonder if you’ll still be as infatuated with this Poke Bowl Serving Set once you’re done catching pocket monsters.

The Poké Ball Serving Bowls come with two dishwasher safe halves of the classic ball used in the Poké-verse. The red top and white bottom can slot together and will equal the approximate size of a volleyball. Sure, that is more than adequate space for your pet hamster to roll around in while you pretend it’s a Pokémon, but that might count as hamster abuse so don’t do it. Instead, fill it with tasty snacks. Preferably the cheesy variety.

Tee hee… hamsters are funny. Anyway, if you want your own Pokemon-themed serving set, you’ll have to spend all of $20.
