    Not to be outdone (but still totally outdone) by The Ohio State University's marching band, this is a video of Clemson's marching band performing a tribute to Super Mario Bros. and Zelda. The performance is actually decent+/good-, but the person holding the camera leaves a lit... / Continue →

    These are the line of Nintendo cartridge flasks that Matt Cornell of Ink Whiskey LLC designed. They're currently a Kickstarter project but have already met their funding goal so paying up will guarantee a flask when they ship around March of next year. $15 will get you a Drun... / Continue →

    This is a chandelier made out of old Nintendo zappers by the folks at online used game/console store JJGames. It's not bad looking. It's maybe not the way I would have arranged the zappers, but I have an eye for shit. GOOD LOOKING SHIT. Still, not bad. Plus I think we can ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Mike Tyson playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out on the NES for the first time, almost 26 years after its original release. Apparently Mike didn't care to see what the hell he was putting his name on back in the day. It was kind of weird to watch though, because M... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. This is a 75" x 45" LEGO mosaic made from 10,511-individual pieces that features a ton of oldschool NES and SEGA video game characters. Etsy seller Mytemporaryshop (awesome name) is currently selling the piece for $4,828.59 (strange price), with all... / Continue →

    This is the NES controller Konami code tattoo (with 1:1 scale buttons!) that Kevin Pacheco got on his forearm. Presumably as some romantic inspiration for when the internet is out and he's too exhausted to use his imagination. Unfortunately, it actually reads upside-down to K... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

    This is the Duck Hunt themed pinball machine made by the folks at Skit-B Pinball. The game was modded from an old Williams Valiant machine and has a screen in the backglass that plays Duck Hunt animations in response to playfield targets. That said, I'm a pinball wizard and c... / Continue →

    These are two NES cartridge pillows from ThinkGeek. Except they're not actually licensed by Nintendo, which is why they're calling them Retro Video Game Cartridge Pillows and feature games like Unicorn's Revenge and Lava Jump instead of Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda. Ca... / Continue →

    This is a fancy wooden NES controller coffee table built by the folks at the Bohemian Workbench (who previously built this one). It's made with a bunch of exotic woods, is Wii compatible, comes with a zapper, and costs $7,200. *coughing up blood* That's a lot of money. "Wai... / Continue →

    This is a NES light gun that's been modded by the folks at North Street Labs into a powerful burning 2W laser blaster. It can set things on fire. And fire, as you and I both know, is awesome and quite possibly the best toy ever invented. Thanks, Jesus! "Jesus didn't invent ... / Continue →

    This is a $90 glowing coin slot belt buckle by Insignificant Fish Industries. I'm not sure who the insignificant fish is, but you better not say Nemo or you and I WILL be required to fist fight. This Belt buckle is made from genuine recycled arcade parts that died in the line... / Continue →

    This is a small series titled 'Ghost In The Machine' from artist Erika Iris featuring Nintendo characters (plus Pac-Man) created from NES controller cords (probably really long ones). They're admittedly awesome, but if you hit the jump you can see the others that were recently... / Continue →

    This is a prototype cartridge of the original Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda. It's for sale on eBay. For $150,000. That's too much for me. Which is why I'm asking you to all band together and buy it for my birthday WHICH IS A WEEK FROM SUNDAY. "Are you having a party?" Ha... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D animation called Super Modern Mario Bros. featuring the first level from the original game 'modernized'. It's cute enough to spend a minute watching. Two minutes? I don't know, can't say I would have made it to the end of two minutes without skipping ahead. Of... / Continue →

    This is series of Nintendo game levels as LEGO sets rendered by zombieattack (RUUUUUN!) and put up on the LEGO CUUSO website for voting. Admittedly, I do like the idea. There are Donkey Kong and Duck Hunt sets after the jump, but a Zelda one was surprisingly lacking. Come on... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday afternoon, I'm already three-and-a-half beers cleverer, and the internet is starting to dry up like a an earthworm on the sidewalk the day after it rains, here's a giant functional NES controller coffee table built by The Bohemian Workbench. It's made from ... / Continue →

    There's no way you actually got those three lines. This is the world's largest NES controller, made to celebrate the Guinness World Records 2012 Gamers Edition. It allegedly took Delft University of Technology student Ben Allen five months and $6,000 to build, although I susp... / Continue →
