Analogue Interactive has taken something timeless and made it even more timeless. Their custom Neo Geo systems (made with an original SNK Neo Geo MV-1C motherboard) are made from either walnut or ebonized ash. Wood, folks. We told you about the system when it made its debut, but now it comes in two finishes in a new rebuild, and is now offered with these lovely custom matching joysticks.

For the system, the company slimmed the original design down and reduced all the jacks on the back to one port. Simple, elegant. 

Analogue says that the stick was a vision they had from day one, and that they wanted to create the Holy Grail of all Neo Geo sticks. They use authentic Seimitsu Japanese parts found in original Neo Geo arcade cabs and an identical Japanese button layout.

Want wood? Analogue Interactive's webstore has both up for order now. The system is priced at $649, and the stick is an additional $199. Pricey but probably worth it. I'd love to fondle one of these setups.

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that ma...more

Splatoon might just be Nintendo's most promising new game

When Nintendo announced its wacky four-on-four shooter Splatoon at E3, I thought it looked cool -- spraying ink on the battlefield and then swimming around in said ink is cool -- but I didn't freak out like some people. Havi...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
