Snow globe photo

Now this is what you do with a Skylanders Portal

I'm not into Skylanders, but even I can't help but want this fantastic snow globe created from one the game's portal devices. Using a smaller 3DS portal and a snow globe creation kit, the holiday themed Skylanders ball of festivities featur...

This contraption automatically finds shiny Pokemon

What would you do for a shiny Pokemon? Y'know, other than the default answer of "spend hours upon hours encountering wild Pokemon for the slim chance that one will have alternate coloring." Granted, the process has gotten easier (some migh...

Volpin Props makes an amazing Halo 4 Needler replica

It's funny how the Needler is sort of iconic with respect to the Halo series. Back in the days of the original Halo, it was almost exclusively used as a way to humiliate an opponent, since it was typically so easy to avoid being hurt by it...

Play Game & Watch and other LCD games in your browser

Hey, 80s babies! Have fond memories of portable gaming in the days before Game Boy? Did your parents ever buy you those Tiger electronic handhelds for $10 a pop to shut you up on those long drives? Or were you born just a little too late an...

Wear Ocarina of Time's famous songs on your hand!

The legendary Atari E.T. landfill is getting excavated

E.T. for the Atari 2600 has a crazy story behind it, and it's something any videogame fan should learn about. Long story short, Atari crushed all the copies of E.T. they couldn't sell and buried it under concrete in a landfill. This was bac...

 
 
Pong on a skyscraper photo

There's a Pong tournament on a Philly skyscraper tonight

Gamers are capable of doing some awesomely odd stuff for the sole purpose of saying they did it. A Drexel University professor is taking that concept and raising the bar. He's raising it 437 feet, to be exact. On April 19 and April 24, Dr....

GDC: Valve, virtual reality, and the Oculus Rift

Back in the day, everyone thought virtual reality was going to be the future of games. We made movies, TV shows, and even very bad early attempts to make head-mounted displays. All of those devices failed, and over time, VR dropped out of o...

What if Hyrule's banks upgraded to paper currency?

Why the denizens of Hyrule still exchange Rupees is beyond me. Have you seen the size of those things? A single shard occupies an entire treasure chest! How could anybody fit more than one in their pocket? It's high time that the Hylian Res...

Real-life Mario Kart with REAL WORKING ITEMS OH SNAP

Yeah, we've all seen so-called "real-life Mario Kart" before, but always as a parody rather than a legitimate adaptation of the game mechanics in a physical setting. But wait around long enough and the magic of SCIENCE will make all your w...

 
 
Controllers photo

Have you used any of these weird-ass controllers?

When it comes to controllers, I try to steer clear of third-party options, as I've never once had a better experience with a knock-off versus the real thing. On the other hand, I gladly welcome any and all limited edition pads or goofy peri...

Nintendo Force magazine is the new kid on the block

So Nintendo Power is over and done with. Tears and all that. Pour one out for our homies. The throne has been abdicated. Time for a new king to rise to power. You've likely heard about a little something called Nintendo Force magazine. Luca...

Hot! Rooster Teeth animator's sweet Mega Man X vid

Remix: A brief history of Nintendo

You can only hear the sound effects from Super Mario Bros. so many times over the years before they start to grate on your very soul. As such, this new Nintendo-themed remix by Reverse Enginears wasn't winning me over with its introduction...

What I wouldn't give to play this Sega Smash variant

No matter how much good press PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale receives, it'll never quite settle with me. The fact that it is a "clone" of Super Smash Bros. isn't what's bothersome -- I personally had a grand time with the game at E3. ...

A chiptune tribute to John Carpenter's synth movie scores

Sometimes it pays to stalk people on Twitter. For example, I was peeping in on Max Scoville's feed when he dropped word of a John Carpenter chiptune tribute album. Naturally, my interest was piqued. Famed film director John Carpenter not on...
