Christmas is just around the corner, but if you’re anything like me you’ve procrastinated and still haven’t bought the gifts you need to get for all the special people in your life. That’s okay, I understand your situation and I’m here to help. I’m sure most of us know gamers, whether they’re of the casual variety or the more hardcore persuasion. You might not know what to get for these people, I mean, how can you know what games they own and which ones they don’t? If you’re getting them video games, you have to take their personal taste into account. Final Fantasy may be a good game, but maybe they’re not a fan of the series. Getting them a game they don’t enjoy could be detrimental to your relationship with that person. They could think you don’t know them, or worse, they think you’re angry with them because you gave them a video game they hated. This could lead to a pretty awkward Christmas.
To keep something like this from happening, we’re going to forgo looking for video games so we can instead focus on gaming related items. I’ve even separated this list of goods into three tiers, divided by price. No need to thank me, I did it because I care. I’m here to spread Christmas faster than the T-Virus spreads a hunger for living flesh. Now sit back, grab a mug of hot cocoa, click that little read more button, and start gifting.
The big day is just a week away, and I know a lot of you have yet to complete your holiday shopping.

The BD Comic Book Crew (as we are henceforth to be known) has put together a naughty list of (mostly new) gift ideas for the comic lovers in your life. It ranges from Christmas tree ornaments to compendiums to charitable donations. Without further adieu, The 2012 Comics Gift Guide. READ MORE

As the body count rises, Aubrey races to discover the killer’s true identity – but in a town full of Santas, shady characters and dark secrets, finding the real murderer will take more then a Christmas miracle.
