  • A company called Wild Ties are known for their wacky and unusual tie designs - and this is no exception. 

    The design is based on the game Duck Hunting. First appearing on the NES console system, this Nintendo game was produced in 1984. Players used the NES light zapper peripheral to shoot ducks from the sky.

    It was also released as an arcade game, and in packs with Super Mario Bros games. 

    Recently, this target shooter has found itself rejuvenated in copycat smartphone applications.

  • Do you want to be sent back to the days of Namco Bandai's Pac-man game?

    It is still a popular game and theme, finding its way on clothing, posters and gadgets. However, it is also possible to purchase Pac-man wallpaper stickers for your home, or perhaps your child's bedroom?  

    This sticker set will put you back $45,00 a time, and other options are available to buy online -- including Pac-man borders.  

    The design and product has been created by Blik.

  • Duck Hunt

    Way to miss your audience :p It's Duck Hunt, not Hunting.

    Though maybe I'm just an ubernerd for knowing the difference.

    Also, I really really want that couch. Y u cost so much!?!?!
