Black Pearl Cognac

Black Pearl Cognac
Buy

Talk about markup: New York’s Rose Club is charging $2,500 a shot for Remy Martin’s Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac; you can save a bit if you buy the whole bottle here for only $32k.

Far Cry 2: Immersion

Far Cry 2: Immersion
Buy

Clint Hawking, Far Cry 2 Creative Director, talks shop (above) about immersion. We like the idea: little details like getting into and out of vehicles help to boost realism.

Deckpeck Skateboards

Deckpeck Skateboards
Buy

This is one deck you won’t thrash: DolceQ’s sexy skateboards are actually printed by Deckpeck. They allow artists to create their own custom decks and wheels as well as sell them.

Flash Game: Canyon Defense

Flash Game: Canyon Defense

Canyon Defense isn’t the only Tower Defense-style game, but it’s quite fun, with good graphics and futuristic weapons. Our only complaint is that it is a bit easy; more levels, por favor.

Batman: Bank Robber Joker

Batman: Bank Robber Joker
Buy

“Insanely” detailed, this 1:6 scale, 12″ Bank Robber Joker comes with plenty of goodies, including two heads, a clown mask, two guns, gloves and a grenade duffel.

Trailer: Empire Total War

Trailer: Empire Total War
Buy

We feature a lot of first person shooters and RPGs here, but still enjoy a good strategy game. Empire: Total War is an RTS/turn-based hybrid, with glorious ship battles.

Trailer: Battlefield: Heroes

Trailer: Battlefield: Heroes

If Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 were ever made into a game, it’d probably resemble Battlefield: Heroes. Banjoes, kilts aplenty, and mimes on fire, all for free later this year: oohh yeah.

Lego Stormtrooper Olympics

Lego Stormtrooper Olympics

The Empire apparently dominated the ’08 Olympics, as these Lego dioramas by Alan Chia show. Most memorable moment: stormtrooper spoofs the relay, gets throttled by Vader.

Moody Slobot

Moody Slobot
Buy

We’re big fans of M. Heislers custom Slobots, so we’re really digging this heavily modified Moody Slobot; he’s made for shark hunting, hence the fins and oxygen tube.

Cape North Vodka

Cape North Vodka
Buy

European favorite Cape North Vodka has crossed the pond to the States; it’s a wheat-based vodka made with Swedish spring water, with hints of vanilla and citrus notes.

Book: Mechanika

Book: Mechanika
Buy

Doug Chiang is an accomplished artist who has worked on Star Wars, Terminator 2, and even The Mask. His latest book, Mechanika, is a must-read for sci-fi artists and fans.

Resistance 2: Collector’s Ed.

Resistance 2: Collector’s Ed.
Buy

Talk about sealing the deal: Resistance 2 is getting a Collector’s Edition which includes an awesome 5.5″ DC Universe Chimera Hybrid figure, art book and bonus DVD.

Thunder God Vinyl

Thunder God Vinyl
Buy

Chinese mythology buffs (you know you’re out there) will love this Lei Gong, God of Thunder vinyl. A bird in a Charlie Brown shirt with a bomb and flip flops: works for us.

Flash Game: Sonny

Flash Game: Sonny

Sonny is a fun and free Flash-based RPG a-la Final Fantasy; you start off as an amnesiac zombie armed with an iron pipe. The production values are surprisingly high.

Climbatron

Climbatron
Buy

We have to admit the Climbatron is utterly pointless (and likely annoying), but it is pretty cool. Using suction cups, it climbs on vertical surfaces–great for driving friends up the wall.

Valt Vodka

Valt Vodka
Buy

Valt Vodka is the world’s first single malt vodka by Scottish distillers. It’s made from many of the same materials that are used in Scotch whisky, including barley sugar and cream.

Saucerbot Lightpainting

Saucerbot Lightpainting
Buy

We’re totally digging these fantastic lightpainting photos by artist Andy Hill, who makes and sells retro sci-fi Saucerbots from LED lights, leftover CDs, DVDs and hard drive platters.

Dark Void Gameplay Video

Dark Void Gameplay Video
Buy

Airtight Games’ Dark Void isn’t just another first person shooter; the main character is equipped with a jetpack, introducing elements such as vertical cover (see the video above).

Armored Core: For Answer

Armored Core: For Answer
Buy

Armored Core: For Answer is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on 9/16. The mecha combat simulator will feature larger maps, more detailed damage and multiplayer co-op.

Desktop Stirling Engine

Desktop Stirling Engine
Buy

A marvel of efficiency, the Desktop Stirling Engine uses an alcohol burner to expand the air in a glass tube; this spins the attached flywheel at speeds of up to 5,000 RPM.

Custom Sharkys

Custom Sharkys
Buy

We featured Keith Poon’s WW2 Sharky Vinyls earlier; Toyqube is now selling 54 custom, one-of-a-kind Sharkys. Our favorites are the Reactor88 and Ultraman customs.

Krups Beertender

Krups Beertender
Buy

Perfect for football parties, the Krups Beertender not only keeps beer perfectly chilled at 41 degrees F, but it injects CO2 every time you open the tap. Use with a Heineken DraughtKeg.

Minigods Speakers

Minigods Speakers
Buy

Marka27’s 16″ tall Minigods have an ace up their sleeve chest — these limited edition vinyls also double as speakers, with a mini-jack and battery-powered internal amp.

Bruichladdich 18

Bruichladdich 18
Buy

Twice aged for 18 years in American and premium French oak casks, Bruichladdich’s single malt scotch whisky has a rich, syrupy aroma and a viscous, buttery taste.

Video: Black Stealth Copter

Video: Black Stealth Copter
Buy

The Black Stealth Helicopter isn’t the first dual rotor RC copter, but at $30 it’s one of the most affordable. The 3-channel copter can moves up, down, left, right, forwards and backwards.

Fallout 3 Gameplay Video

Fallout 3 Gameplay Video
Buy

October 28th can’t come soon enough; Bethesda recently released five Fallout 3 gameplay vids at PAX. The first one is above, but be sure to check out the remaining four here.
