Rez is one of the coolest games ever made. Original published on the Dreamcast and PS2 in 2001, the rhythm game by Tetsuya Mizuguchi (who also created Space Channel 5 and Lumines)  was heavily influenced by William Gibson's Neuromancer and the artwork of Kadinsky. It was an attempt at recreating the sense of synesthesia, where the brain experiences sounds in a visual manner or any mix of the senses. Since then, it was remade for Xbox 360 and PS3 using high definition assets and a 16:9 screen ratio. Now it's getting the VR treatment on Playstation and is even getting a physical release thanks to iam8bit. Even better, the game's trance soundtrack is getting a limited edition release on vinyl. The standard version comes on two transparent orange 12" vinyl records and a 7" marbled vinyl. The special edition features two picture discs featuring the player character and a mystery 7". Both come with a Rez history book. Enamel pins are also in the works, as are t-shirts, one of which was designed by Phil "Hissy Fit" Fish, who infamously canceled Fez 2 after an Internet meltdown. Check out all of these items below and pre-order them over at iam8bit!

    Last year, Takara made an amazing Transformer out of a pun, mashing up the big bad guy, Megatron, with Sega's 16-bit Mega Drive. And while it was nowhere near as punny, they followed it up with a Playstation-based Optimus Prime. But they stopped there.

    Sanrio had a booth at NYCC but it was pretty much empty. There were a few pieces under glass, such as their collaboration with Chocolate Skateboards, but didn't have anything for sale.
