Once again the time is right for an additional installment into our Fun Fridays series which week we have some pretty cool gaming related things to check out like always. This week we have from a life-size Pac-Man game to some tiny Minecraft: Pocket Edition themed stylus and some cool things in between. So sit back, drink some morning coffee, and look for these cool video gaming related things.
Life-size Pac-Man Super Bowl Ad
Every year once the Super Bowl comes around companies like to drop huge amount of money on ads. 99% of the time these ads are generally really cool to look at or bloody hilarious. Either way it is usually quite a fun time just watching the Super Bowl ads. This ad is definitely cool and that i would totally be up for doing it if it actually existed. It is a 90-second ad entitled “Coin” in which a guy and his buddies drop an enormous quarter right into a slot on the side of a road. This will make them enter into what appears like a life-sized neon Pac-Man rave also it appears like a lot of fun.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition Pickaxe Stylus
Moving on from something big just like a life-size Pac-Man game to something really small. ThinkGeek is an online store for anyone who enjoy products associated with all things geek-ish. This, obviously, includes game titles even though there are many Minecraft-themed toys already out, this one is really a functioning stylus that takes the form of a Minecraft Pickaxe.
This Pickaxe works with virtually any touchscreen tool and is certainly something you Minecraft: Pocket Edition fans might want to take a look at to show off your dependence on the game. It is also currently on sale for $11.99. While you’re in internet marketing, you may also pick up another cool video game related goodies at ThinkGeek such as the stack-able Tetris LED Desk Lamp. Each block lights up whenever you stack it onto one that is already lit.

Borderlands Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition
Borderlands has been ported over to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and will be arriving soon for both platforms. There are a few ‘editions’ of this game, such as the standard edition for $60 and will be arriving March 24th, 2015. This edition comes with improved graphics, cross-platform saved games and four-way split-screen cooperative action. However the Claptrap-in-a-box Edition is the one we will take a look at. Not since it costs $399 but because you get a functioning robot by using it.
Buying the Claptrap-in-a-box Edition of Borderlands will net you some pretty cool items but nothing compares to the miniture Claptrap robot that accompany it. It is equipped with a camera and can be controlled with your Android or iOS device. The camera being there so you can see in first-person where you stand happening your Android device. There will simply be 5,000 of those available though so if you plan to acquire one, we recommend not waiting too much time.
