This GBA SP Switch dock is crude, but functional

The Game Boy Advance SP is a masterpiece of a system. While the Game Gear had the backlight years before it, this was the first time I was able to play a Game Boy without attaching a gross worm light accessory to it, and man, did the G...

Conan joins Will Arnett for an Arms flavored Clueless Gamer

Clueless Gamer is one of those segments that I'm happy is still around -- especially given how quickly some late night hosts abandon bits or run them into the ground. People accuse Conan of "hating games," but that's his entire shtick, and ...

A fighting game tournament with two-second rounds? I'm in

I would still play this dated, lost Sonic skateboarding game

This has been one of my favorite episodes of the Unseen64 series, partially because of the lengths that folks have gone to in the name of game preservation. Years back there was a Sonic-themed skateboarding game slated for Xbox, PS2, and Ga...

I want this interactive amiibo jukebox shelf so bad

I felt pretty good about owning every amiibo ever made in a glass case that a family member gifted me, but this "interactive shelf" from BerryAaku is on another level. After spending "a little over a year" on the project, they were abl...
