Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE ($48.02)
Set in modern-day Tokyo, “players take charge of a group of young friends who aspire to become pop idols, taking lessons to learn how to sing, dance, model, act, and also travel into a parallel dimension to combat the monstrous ‘mirages’ that are stealing people’s talent.” Derrick Sanskrit says that this game has an edge over similar RPGs. It’s also 20 percent off right now.

The first step in turning your kitchen into an old-timey ice cream shop. Second step: striped straws.
Wonderbag slow-cooker ($51.86)
Advertising itself as “eco-friendly slow cooking,” Wonderbag also claims to have changed the way people cook in emerging economies, allowing those who cook over wood fires to save water, time, and firewood. Once you’ve brought something to a boil, you can Wonderbag it and let it simmer for hours. Seems like a pretty cool way to have chili waiting for you when you get home this winter.
Moscow mule mugs ($34.75)
Solid copper for your favorite vodka cocktail.
This handy package will let you use the controller to play games on your computer. Recommended by Gameological editor Matt Gerardi.
They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our big-eyed action figures.
