JOYSTICK-IT Arcade Stick ($24.99)


If you’ve had the pleasure of playing Street Fighter IV on the iPad, you know it’s great...except for the strange feeling of having to swipe at the screen to perform hadoukens. The nerds at ThinkGeek have come up with an ingenious solution in the JOYSTICK-IT, a removable joystick that actually works very well for the iPad. It doesn’t conjure up the days of yore when we were feeding quarters into arcade cabinets, but it adds a bit more tactility to your game and keeps your grubby-ass hands off the screen a bit, which is always a plus. Seriously, what have you been doing, having a mudball fight?
