Everyone's got problems. Lucky for you, I'm here to give you a look at the best, most expensive video game accessories. Hit the jump (that's common talk for "have your assistant click 'read more'").

With the change you find between your wooly mammoth fur couch cushions, you can pick up this handsome statue of everyone's favorite secret lady hero, Samus, in the Phazon Suit. 25 LEDs look even better in the dark with a mirrored base and an internal chip that lets them slowly fade out.

XL Wall Mural - $255


Ran out of Picassos before you ran out of wall space? While your company is busy cloning the great master to decorate your foyer, please to enjoy this 15' by 9' mural of Batman. Put it up while you're playing your advanced copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum (Eidos stock must be somewhere in your portfolio), then tear it down and throw it away when you're done. These XL Wall Murals also come in Littlest Pet Shop and Thomas the Train varieties for your whiny, spoiled brats.

Red Queen Sword of Nero (Devil May Cry 4) - $416.25

This replica of Nero's sword from Devil May Cry 4 is a full-sized beast, measuring in at 42 inches (the height of a kindergartener). Pressing a lever releases fuel onto the sword, which then ignites. That's right, flaming sword. Order from United Cutlery here (http://www.unitedcutlery.com/ProductDetail.aspx?itemno=UC2596&cat=LC). Now your personal chefs can slice your snow leopard paninis in style.

Gears of War 2 Locust Drone Design Maquette - $649.99


Nothing says nerd luxury like 1:1 busts. When you're sick of it, leave it to your heir. He can use it to practice kissing the snaggle-toothed, sunken-eyed, inbred Austrian blueblood you've arranged for him to marry. This hand-painted, hand-finished monstrosity is available for preorder, but it's a limited edition of only 500 pieces...so, uh, act now? (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=PT18810)

Ryu Painting (between $10,000 - $14,000)

UK artist Dave White created this painting of Street Fighter's Ryu on a 5' by 4' canvas. He's one of the world's up-and-coming painters, which you couldn't tell by looking at this painting. Sure, it's not that great looking (is that a coffee stain on the right edge?). But it's on internet record as the most expensive piece of video game artwork ever, so if your country club friends don't like it, tell them to Google it.

VRX Mach 4 - $25,000

The VRX Mach 4 is a fully immersive racing experience. For this much, you could buy a real race car for an immersive racing experience...but who are we to question the whims of the rich. While the sight of four 360s alone is enough to boggle the mind, try to hold your pee about this: it comes with 4 Sharp Aquos 37" 1080p LCD HDTVs, Bose Acoustimass surround sound, Harmon Kardon surround sound receiver, a 1500 watt vibration feedback system, and a fan-powered virtual wind system. For more specs and to order, click here (http://vrx.ca/mach_4.php). The price isn't available on the website, but if you have to ask, you can't afford it. We asked.

Gold and Diamond-Encrusted Game Boy - $29,500

This gem of a handheld was commissioned by Aspreys of London. Encased in 18K gold with a screen surrounded by individual diamonds, this Game Man is a good way to let people know you play retro games because they're cool, not because you're poor. Order it with your black AmEx at Swiss Supply Direct Inc. (http://www.swisssupply.com/nintendo.php) In case you're on the fence, it comes with original cables, three random used games, and a worn-out briefcase.

If I were a rich billionaire with more money than sense, I'd own all of these. As it happens I'm far from being a billionaire so I'll just have to stick with wishing I were. That's a mighty fine lookin gameboy.

That Samus statue looks really cool, I'd defenitely buy it if I had enough money.
A friend of mine just showed me a pic of a real life-sized lancer that she got on sale and it's much cooler than that Nero sword.

My friend has the lancer. Not half as cool as the Red Queen Sword of Nero, plus it lights on fire.

In the UK we got a Golden Lancer because of some law that says that replica weapons have to painted a bright colour.

But if that's the case, that's rather stupid, who the hell's going to think that a Lancer (big gun with a chainsaw) is an actual threat? :p

Airsoft are different, I think it's because they fall under sports equipment or something like that. (Same as actual airguns).

It's all in the VCR Act. Guns must be purple, yellow, orange, green, something like that.

And that was my thought aswell, you could rob a bank with a replica Glock 12, but not a replica Lancer.
(Even at that it's bloody stupid, now all people need to do is paint real/converted/reactivated guns bright orange and people will think its a toy, way easier to carry around then).

I hate all this BS though.
Why should people that enjoy stuff like that suffer because of a fucking junkie and some dumb bitch that knows nothing about the area she wants to blabber on about to the public?

All this shit is crazy.

I want it all! If I could I would, but I'm too young for lottery tickets.
If my grammar sucks, it's because I'm tired as hell.

I would not mind getting the locust head or the XL wall painting.

That expensive Ryu painting isn't too cool. I mean, it is, but not for that much money.

My favorite thing is probably the sword even though I'm not a fan of Devil May Cry, it's still really sick. That and the gold/diamond Game Boy. That would be so amazing to have!

The chicken is probably the funniest thing. Spending ~$200 on a stuffed chicken is blasphemous but at the same time, I almost want to do it! :p

Those would all be so cool to have. I hear that chicken calling out to me ...

Looking at these excessive and generally redundant over indulgences it just makes me think, what next!? Paying good money in point currency for a virtual item of clothing.. oh yeah that's already here.

My bad.

My friend has the lancer. Not half as cool as the Red Queen Sword of Nero, plus it lights on fire.

Yeah but hers has blood spatters on it and it makes chainsaw sounds and vibrates.
As for Nero's sword, lighting on fire cannot possibly be true. Proof my friend.
