    This is the upcoming Nintendo x Vans 2016 Summer Shoe collection. No word on price yet but they're supposed to be released early this summer and I want those Zelda slip-ons. Slip-ons are great because you don't have to worry about tying laces. Who has time for that? "You ca... / Continue →

    This is a stop-motion animation of a handful of video games recreated entirely using printed or projected stock images. That goes on for about a minute and forty-five seconds, then it turns into a two minute ad for Pond5, who sell royalty-free images and videos. So it's best ... / Continue →

    To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original Metroid game for the NES, this is a video of modern teens reacting to playing Super Metroid for the SNES (wait -- did they already do regular Metroid?). They aren't very good at it. Admittedly, Super Metroid is a pretty hard g... / Continue →

    This is a video of Darbian setting the new Super Mario Bros. speedrun record, finishing the game in just 4:57.260 and beating the previous record by only 433 milliseconds. Will somebody make it faster? I dunno, it seems like there is very little room for improvement here. Wi... / Continue →

    Because the world is going to end soon anyways, this is a video created by Balázs Bánk of the Flappy Bird game he ported to play on an eVic-VTC Mini vaporizer mod. How about that! "But why?" I dunno, presumably just because he could, because I see absolutely no other reason ... / Continue →

    This is a story told by gamer and author Patrick Lenton via Twitter of his epic journey to rescue a stray dog in Skyrim. It was no simple feat. In order to adopt a dog in Skyrim, you have to have a proper homestead and already adopted children (via the Hearthfire expansion) t... / Continue →

    This is the officially licensed Pac-Man business suit and tie available from OppoSuits. It costs around $110 and lets the person conducting your next job interview know that you mean business AND pleasure. Or that you're the kind of person that'll call out sick for a week and... / Continue →

    This is an hour and 45 minute long video of every Mortal Kombat fatality in the entirety of the franchise. I forgot how cheesy so many of them are. Especially in the earlier games. Of course, I forget a lot of things. I'd probably forget my own penis if it wasn't duct taped... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber きらめきでどーだい beating Super Mario Bros in 14:46 while blindfolded (previously: another guy doing Super Mario World). Personally, I like to see what I'm doing. Plus I don't want the game makers to think I don't appreciate their graphics. I only like pl... / Continue →

    This is the $25 Retro Gaming Shower Curtain available from ThinkGeek. It looks like an oldschool Nintendo cartridge game box. Plus, since it's got a clear window at the top, it puts YOU in the game. I've always wanted to be in my own Nintendo game, but the graphics were neve... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of a beta version of 3DNES, a work-in-progress Nintendo emulator that renders classic NES games in 3-D. It's by no means perfect, but it does look promising. Kind of like the halfway point in a video makeup tutorial. You sort of look like a clown now but... / Continue →
