PLAYSTATION

Game
Concrete Genie – $39.95 RRP 

A gorgeous and underplayed journey from earlier in the year that I merrily awarded a 10/10 in my review. Concrete Genie would make a great gift for all ages and even features a PSVR mode where you can paint objects into the world around you in beautiful colours. 

Gadget 
PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset – $129.95

If you know someone that’s still playing games with crappy TV speakers, or playing online with the sub-par headphone piece that comes with your PlayStation 4 console, it’s time to get them an upgrade. The PlayStation Gold headset recently got a new release and is designed to work perfectly with the console and PSVR. It also comes in several colours for you to pick from.

For gamers of all ages, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is bound to be a laugh, a spook and a fantastic time. Join Luigi and he once again finds himself as the only one capable of putting a stop to a ghostly outbreak as he takes them down with his trusty Poltergust G-00.

This may sound like a rather boring one at first, but in case you’re unaware, the Nintendo Switch doesn’t come with an AC Adaptor for you to use when you buy it. The console comes with a cord to set up your docking station, but what if you don’t want to unplug that all the time? You’ll need to purchase one of these, and it’s a must-own if you want to easily pack up your Switch for holidays or even to another room without messing with your neatly set-up TV station.

Nintendo Switch Lite – $329.95

Even if you own a Nintendo Switch, the idea of owning a Lite to carry around with ease sound fantastic. And if you don’t own a Switch because you’ve always been a Nintendo handheld game, don’t a console owner, the Nintendo Switch Lite is exactly what you’ll need. It’s smaller, lighter and allows you to take newly released games like Pokemon Sword & Shield on the go just like the handheld systems. Of course, you can’t dock it like the main console, but that’s the point. 

 

Movies & TV

Movie
Booksmart – $26.98

The ultimate under-rated film of the year that everyone should watch is Booksmart and it’ll make a perfect gift for anyone. With amazing performances and a breakout directorial debut by Olivia Wild, Ashley Hobley, in fact, said in his review that “this film is certain to be the breakout moment in the careers of many of those involved.”

Boxset
Game of Thrones Season 1-8 – $189

Now that one of the most-watched TV event shows of the decade is over, it’s time to rewatch it from the start. It doesn’t matter if you loved or loathed the finale, it’s all about the journey and rewatching it one episode at a time over the next year — or binging it if you’re that kinda person — is bound to be a wonderful gift for any Game of Thrones fan.

Gadget

Unless you have a more recent smart-tv you’re missing out on a lot of apps and features for your 4K TV, but the Chromecast Ultra can fix that for a low price. Simply plug it into your TV and you can start casting Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video and more from your phone, or tablet directly to your TV without any messing around. And the Ultra allows for 4K/HDR streaming, this includes rentals on the Google Play store which has a slowly growing library of movies and tv shows in 4K.

Every Marvel movie that made up the last ten years of cinematic storytelling is now yours to proudly set atop your mantlepiece. Or in your cabinet, whatever. Either way the Infinity Saga collection is one thing, but this special edition comes in a beautiful box to set this collection apart from any other, and a signed letter from big boss Kevin Fiege as well.
