The original NES controller has inspired many a killer recreation project, and this is surely not the first time that someone has decided to whip up a table based on the little rectangular guy. You can always see varying levels of skill in people's work, however, and the thing about Kyle Downes version here is that it's bloody flawless. I can't find a single thing that keeps it from looking like a giant's version of the beloved original, and for that I applaud him.

If you are as fascinated as I am, you'll want to see how he made it, which is easy thanks to the progress posts that Kyle made as he went through the project. You can also see the controller in action in a video after the jump (of course it's fully functional as well), which seems like it might be easiest to use with two people operating it. If I ever meet Kyle, he will have no choice but to be subjected to me bowing and praying to him in the street, so for his sake let's hope that chance meeting never takes place.

I didn't expect this to be my favorite AGDQ 2015 speedrun

First, a quick thank you to Destructoid reader lunarwhale for bringing this Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels speedrun to my attention. I naively thought I'd watch a minute or two, tops, right before going to bed, but ended...more

Dark water and the things below give me the shivers

If we're all confessing our gaming-related fears, I might as well share mine. I can't stand the water. More specifically, I can't stand what lives under the water. If there is ever a section of a game that will make me want to stop playing, it probably involves getting your toes wet and taking a little swim with, well, whatever. I can thank Super Mario Bros. 3 for this phobia. more

I think videogames made me hate funhouses

I don't like funhouses, although, I suppose I haven't given them a fair shake. I've never been inside one, but I'm pretty certain that makes no difference. You see, videogames trained me at a very young age to hate funhouses....more
