Merch! Merch! Merch!


Introducing THE FLABMAN AND TWIG ACTION HERO PLAYSET! Flabman and Twig in the palm of your hand! You can make them walk! You can make them talk! You can make them punch people! Need socks? THEY ARE SOCKS! Worried about wearing mismatching socks? BUY ANOTHER SET!!!!! Complete your wardrobe today! Did I mention all this for the low low cost of $19.99!!!!

On a more serious note, I was playing a video game the other day and I realized when you buy a video game you don't even get the full game anymore. There is always downloadable content that comes out later or only if you pre order at Gamestop. Sometimes for an additional cost. What? And it seems like there is a trend where you can pay real money for fake in game money or objects. That's been around for a long time but before it seemed like more of a World of Warcraft black market type thing but i'm noticing more and more that video game companies are embracing this concept as a way to make more money. This may be old news, but I think it's silly. Let's go back to cartridges...
