Statesman Journal, Salem, Ore., Friday, December 15, 1934 ET CUTE OA Page 7C SffSsFor the person who has everything q PUBLIC notice Continued from Page 1 C o pin? The Boys and Girls Aid Spciety, a non-profit group that helps young people at risk, is selling them. They were designed by Dan Brennan and are pure white. The oranaments are $7.50 and the pins are $10. You can get them at Quisenberry's and SRO Tickets. South Salem Pharmany also has the pins. I Xanadu, also in the Reed, has a i hot item, too. They are handcrafted bunnies made by a Seattle women. One example, Vio-ltjt, sells for $95.95. ! Engelberg Antiks, 148 Liberty St- NE, is a trip back in time, as antique shops tend to be. One of the many unusual and campy itjems in this shop is a turn of the century, wrought iron potty chair (price $395). Henri Dill, the store oner, said that the commode wjas put in the hall or beside the bed at night so that people wouldn't have to make that cold tifip to the outhouse. j People into fishing lore might fall in love with the Everol deep 8ia fishing pole for just $550, apd those into collecting lunch-boxes will find a metal Ministers Gaorsss Jew titles pull out ll the stops Continued from Page 1 C bilities, says Selby Bateman, executive editor at GP Publications, which puts out Game Players Sega-Nintendo and CD-ROM Today. Nintendo's Donkey Kong Country may be "the clearest ex-afnple' of how sophisticated 16-bit games can be, Bateman says, bjxt "you're going to see excellent grimes on into 1995." Kong, at $69.95 suggested retail, has grossed more than $45 rrjillion in the United States since its introduction last month, according to Nintendo. By year's end, the company expects to sell 6 million copies worldwide. With that kind of potential, Nintendo, Sega and third-party designers intend to make 16-bit gauges well into 1996 albeit fewer, as the next generation of game systems arrives. In fact, the new systems are starting to arrive. Sega's 32X, a $159, 32-bit plug-in for Genesis units, "is the hottest thing" at Software Etc. in Topeka, Kan., says senior sales manager Heather Pickering. It plays 32X games such as Doom, Star Wars Arcade and Virtua Racing Deluxe ($60-$70), as ; well as current 16-bit cartridges and CDs. Sega has sold more than 200,000 32X units so far, and says it expects to sell 600,000 by Christmas. The company hopes to sustain the Genesis platform until the all-new Saturn system, just on the market in Japan ($450-$475), hits the U.S. next year. A guide to top 16-bit hits: Donkey Kong Country is the cutting edge in 16-bit technology. The classic game's namesake ape gets a 3-D facelift via shading and texturing on Silicon Graphics supercomputers. The backgrounds in Donkey Kong Country are just as deep and varied; there is day, night and more weather changes than a Farmers' Almanac. In the same jungle vein, Virgin Interactive has created some gorgeous backdrops for Simba's ascension to become The Lion King (Super NES, Genesis, Sega CD, $50-$60). The game play is positively purr-fect, too, so making Simba climb, roll and pounce is lots of fun. Earthworm Jim (Playmates, Super NES and Genesis, $69.99) has moves that are just as good, but' a less conventional tale. A super-powered spacesuit landed on him and now there's a galaxy of adventures to squirm through. Few video game maneuvers rival Jim's Schwarzenegger-like machine-gun blasts. Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse (Sony Imagesoft, SNES, Genesis and Sega CD, $59.95) looks as smashing and might be better for beginners or those mad about the! mouse. Classic cartoons like Steamboat Willie serve as the setting. Super Return of the Jedi. (JVC Musical, SNES, about $60). Third in this touted series cre-atjd by LucasArts Entertainment. From Jabba the Hutt's palace to a final battle with the Death Star, you get to plajr five characters including Han and Leia. All these games would be fine for Aids to adults (mild animated violence). lunchbox for $132. They're eet ting rare, Dill said. Oh yeah, plus there's a real find on one of the shelves: a manifold for a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette. It's $195. In the rear of the antique store is Harrell Enterprises, which specializes in player pianos and reed organs. If you really want to impress your sweetie, put on a roll and let the piano do the work. The only piano for sale in the store is $2,800. Collecting the '50s stuff is trendy, and The Bon Marche at the Lancaster Mall has a little display of Coca-Cola items. Among them is a Coke napkin dispenser, just like you find at the soda shop (except this one is made in China). The price is $24.99. The legends of Himalayas are captured in a wooden carving of a man and woman (highly interpretive) at the Gifts from Afar store in Salem Centre. It's about a foot and a half tall and sells for a penny less than $200. Too bad you don't live in Deschutes County. The Redmond Greenhouse has such a deal: a dozen long-stemmed roses deliv ered every week for 52 weeks to that special mend. The cost is a mere $3,900. If there is someone in Deschutes County you would like the roses delivered to, call the greenhouse at 800-548-5418. If you really want to shake things up, head on out to Hear No Evil, 2290 Commercial St. NE, and pick up a subwoofer (a few hundred bucks and up). It's that one little item missing from your home theater system. And it will blow those new slippers right off your loved one's feet.
