Hell yeah, the Ultima VI Britannia map was hung from my wall for many years, there was a DOOM level set that came with a sick skull poster that was up there too.
I remember where I used to live, there was a video game rental shop (before Blockbuster and what have you) and they actually rented PC games (with the box). I used to wade through those games like I do with record shopping.
Still one of my favorite games from that era was The Magic Candle, that came with an awesome map as well (and manual).
Here's the map - http://magiccandle.wumple.com/files/mc1/mc1map.jpg It was one of the few games I remember where you actually needed to camp and some could go hunt, some could keep watch over the camp while others rested, etc - and later in the game it was imperative to split up party members for certain quests/tasks.

How to design computer peripherals:
Give it a titanic name
Throw in extra zeroes in the name
Throw in buzzwords like "sleek and stealth aesthetics"
Give it lots of flashing light options
Fancy mechanical switch wordplay
Extensive macroing ability which can potentially get you banned in online games
Asus took it one step further with adding a carrying case. Lol.
I'm happy with my Brown MX Cherry keyed blue backlit Duckyshine Zero.

I don't know. By the name you'd think it would be a newer take on BF1942. However in the brief glimpses of gameplay we see, it seems more like Call of Duty, or BF4 with a WW2 theme. I'm not seeing much in the way of gameplay elements that are really 1942-y.
Which makes sense if the devs are referencing MoH and CoD2. But then it puts the name at odds with the gameplay.

I got a pebble time. I like it. Battery life is a week though, not 18 fucking hours like the apple watch.
