    Ed Fries (possibly of Mickey D's Fry Guys) went and made a playable version of Halo 2600, a throwback to what it would have been like to play Halo on the Atari 2600. Honestly, I couldn't tell the difference between this version and the one for the XBox, but maybe some of you h... / Continue →

    Want to build your own giant Atari 2600 controller lamp? No problem -- all it takes is some power tools, a shit-ton of skill, more patience than my girlfriend, and a month of unemployment. It'll totally be worth it though, right? No, it won't be. And yours will probably loo... / Continue →

    The Super Genintari was made by the same modder as yesterday's Nintoaster and combines four gaming systems in one. I'll let you guess which four. Pretty impressive, Mr. Modder, but I see your Super Genintari and raise you one XPlay-NeoGrafxJagDream 260064360. Geekologie Writ... / Continue →

    Todd Levin is a man, a man who has written an article about every gaming console he's ever owned. It's a very intimate account. The joystick’s distinct shape provided me with hours of sophisticated entertainment, especially as I blindly turned the corner of sexual awareness... / Continue →

    Jason Torchinsky, a man who loves Atari but can't stand small controllers made a frickin' huge classic Atari controller. As you can see it's quite large. Unfortunately there were no shots of Olivia Munn playing with it. Which is unfortunate, because that would have made it a... / Continue →
