In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.
LaCroix variety pack ($22.75)
Everybody at Onion Inc. drinks so much LaCroix that our bones are probably just filled with carbon dioxide at this point. We’re such addicts that probably nobody is above ordering fancy sparkling water online at this point—just stay away from the coconut flavor.
Star Wars: Battlefront ($17.25)
Reviewer Drew Toal said, “The accelerated cycle of death and rebirth can be frustrating—troops are surprisingly, realistically fragile—but it also speaks to the game’s greatest strength. For the first time maybe ever, it’s more fun (and, arguably, effective) to play as a generic soldier than a lightsaber-wielding murder wizard.”
Inventory: 16 Films Featuring Manic Pixie Dream Girls, 10 Great Songs Nearly Ruined By Saxophone, And 100 More Obsessively Specific Pop-Culture Lists ($11.99 Kindle, $20.99 paperback)
We wrote a book way back in 2009. Still makes pretty good coffee table decoration.
Apple pie spice ($7.96)
Everybody else is going nuts over pumpkin pie spice, but you know that adding cardamom to the mix makes everything that much better.
Gameological editor Matt Gerardi said that this game knows how good it is—and how doomed you are. “Just as we are cursed to search Bloodborne for any thrills its city of Yharnam might hide, your character (a “hunter”) runs headfirst into the dilapidated streets seeking a cure for your own mysterious illness. That pursuit lasts for dozens of hours, and even in the face of seemingly insurmountable, bloodcurdling monstrosities, the only thing to do is march toward that mythical panacea—whether it’s the cure for super-lycanthropy or the satisfaction of plundering a game as masterfully constructed and cruel as this.” Damn.
Bicycle pizza cutter ($9.95)
You need a little whimsy in your life, and on your pizza, if you survive playing Bloodborne.
Budweiser Kurt Adler light set ($14.57)
Perfect for your unfinished basement, where you eat whimsically sliced pizza and play grueling video games.
