We’ll let you in on a poorly kept secret: gaming laptops are more interesting and powerful than ever before. The best gaming laptop of 2016 proves that you can go mobile without sacrificing too much gaming power, no matter what you prefer to play. And thanks to the latest laptop computer inventions, such as new mobile ports for high-end GPUs, performance and display quality has never been better.

Power and durability are, of course, important when searching for the best gaming laptop. You’ll have to sacrifice some weight to get everything in one package, so we also suggest considering a gaming laptop pack or case that can hold everything easily.

As far as the screen goes, don’t even think about going below HD – and if you have enough to spend, 4K gaming laptops are now readily available.

Coleco To Release A New Console In 2016

ColecoVision-Game-Console-Featured-image-672x372

Are you old enough to remember ColecoVision? If you are, there’s a chance that playing retro games also tickles your cockles in a way that very few of the modern games do. We don’t know whether it’s the ingenious simplicity of a 2-D sidescroller, or the melancholic throwback to your youth that makes these games attractive, but Coleco is certainly hoping to cash in on the sentiment by announcing the release of the Coleco Chameleon. In a partnership with Retro Video Game Systems, the company plans to bring a new console that’ll play “20th-century 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit titles. There will also be brand new games with similar graphics available, too.” We don’t know how much it’ll cost, and the image you see is only a render, not the actual product, but by the time February comes around we should know more as the company plans to show off their product at the 2016 NY Toy Fair.

Romain Jerome Releases $18,950 Super Mario Bros. Watch

romain-jerome-super-mario-bros-watch

Romain Jerome is known to make some eye catching and obscenely expensive watches. Whether it’s a DeLorean themed watch with actual pieces of the car, its Moon Dust watch, containing dust from the moon, or the Titanic DNA watch, containing (you guessed it) actual pieces from the sunken ship, the timepieces always stand out. The same holds true of the ‘Super Mario Bros.’ watch, although it contains no parts of Mario, for obvious reasons. Released as a tribute to the game’s 30th anniversary, it will be produced in a limited run of 85 pieces, each fetching an eye watering $18,950. Made from PVD-coated back titanium, the 46mm case features a three-layer face meant to recreate the pixelated look of the seminal game.

Portal Mirrors For Your Home

portal-mirrors1-640x533

After you spend so many hours trying to complete the puzzle game Portal, you may become obsessed with its aesthetic. So it would make sense to honour your new obsession with a real life reminder of the time you spent teleporting yourself from place to place. The Portal Mirrors pictured above are outfitted with orange and blue LEDs to give them a look very similar to the portals used in game.

They’re hand-made and it will take up to two weeks after you place your order before they’re shipped. But they certainly are distinctive, and worth the $249 asking price to fanatics of the game.
