While this year’s Black Friday sales numbers should be trickling in over the next few hours, I just had to point out First Party,  the new clothes-for-professional-nerds venture from the Penny Arcade guys.  They won’t win Cyber Monday or anything (thanks to teenage girls, anything that doesn’t involve vampires is at a huge disadvantage this year), but every well dressed gamer should have the launch polo on their wish list.
