It’s that time of year, FreekNation. Stockings are hung, candles are lit, exams are wrapping up and we’re looking forward to some long, un-interrupted days of gaming by the fire.
Also, there are the presents.
There have been a ton of new games and accessories announced this year and, quite frankly, we want all of them. But we know that’s not reasonable, so we’ve pulled together the ultimate list of KontrolFreek’s Most Wanted gaming gifts this year.
Take a look and get your wish lists ready:
Where do we even start? Star Wars Battlefront, Fallout 4, Halo 5, Madden 16, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Rainbow Six: Siege, Call of Duty: Black Ops III… There are too many games to even list at this point. Basically, if it came out in the last 3 months, we want to get our hands on it.
2. Bundles on bundles on bundles
After all of the games that came out this year, you might want to look into updating your system for some more space, or power or… heck, these just look cool. Both Sony and Microsoft stepped up their game this year, and there are tons of options for dedicated gamers to get a licensed consoles inspired by your favorite game this year. We’re talking Xbox One Gears of War, PS4 Star Wars, PS4 Destiny and Xbox One Halo 5 and Forza 6. We technically understand that buying 7 versions of the same console is inadvisable, but… is it really? Put ‘em on the list!
The Xbox Elite has been terribly hard to come by, so much so that Microsoft is having a hard time keeping up with demand. But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t keep our fingers crossed that someone had the foresight to snap one of these up before everyone else did. “Why the Elite?” you ask? Oh, we’ll tell you. Let’s talk about high-quality, interchangeable parts and button re-mapping. The paddles are game-changers for FPS and the whole thing is customizable – even the sensitivity. We’re not sure if there will be more in stock before December 25, but at this point we’d be happy with an IOU and a pre-order.
We love this mini-fridge. And it knows we do. It can heat stuff up, cool stuff down and plug in at home OR in your car. You know. For all those times when you’ve needed 18 cold cans of soda when you’re driving around town… Actually, that sounds awesome…
Shut up and take our money! You really can’t go wrong with these. Just take a look, scroll through and we guarantee you’ll find at least one you want. They do a lot for you in-game with boosts and bonuses, but they also look awesome just sitting on the shelf. Or on a KontrolFreek desk…
Classy, high-quality, noise-cancelling. I’m personally drawn to the white – they look as sleek as they sound. But if that’s not your style they also come in black and a mix of black and white. They’ve got a decently sized price tag, but you pay to get the best, my friends.
We’ve seen demos of these at a few gaming events, as well as more than a few videos of people wiping out on them. (Seriously, look them up on YouTube. It’s worth it.) We’re old enough to remember when Segways were a big deal, but this is a smaller, hands-free Segway for your feet. Oh, and did we mention that there’s a model with a built-in Bluetooth speaker? Hopefully next time we’re at an event, we’ll be riding in style with one of these.
We’ve heard some epic things about the DXRacer from our favorite streamers and YouTubers. So much so that some of the KF team has these in their home gaming rooms. DXRacer chairs are an industry-standard in gaming and we have it on good authority that they meet up to all the hype. And why get a regular chair when you can have a throne fit for a king? It’s the holidays, after all. Aim high, recline low with these babies.
Do we even need to say anything else? He’s cute, he rolls, he’s compatible with my smart phone. Slap a bow on it and roll it under my tree. Please!
What? We had to be on our own list! J Seriously, our KF Signature Collection has low, mid and high-rise KontrolFreeks, Grips and our Logo Tee. This bundle has everything you need to up your game and dominate in 2016.
