As cakes go, this one is pretty good-looking, yeah? With the molded goombas and mushrooms, it’s hard to argue against this level of detail. The crenellations around the top of that tower aren’t perfect, but I think that adds to their charm.
If you’re not one of the devotees attached to the official community–yes, one already exists–for the as-yet-undated MMORPG Star Trek Online, you might not have seen much about the forthcoming game, and that means you can boldly go into this screenshot without any expectations.
Okay so Activelink‘s Power Loader is not really a weapon, it’s a tool for heavy lifting. But so was the loader in the Aliens movie from which the exoskeleton takes its name. That didn’t stop Ripley from pwning the alien queen with it.
The Power Loader is made of 500 lbs of aluminum alloy.
Construction and erection of the 18-m (59 ft) Tetsujin 28-go (aka Gigantor) statue in Kobe, Japan wrapped up a few days ago, more than a couple of weeks after the Gundam statue – the Neil Armstrong of robot statues – was dismantled.
With winter around the corner, I could use a new scarf. But I’m not sure I’m confident enough in my own masculinity to walk around wearing this crocheted Super Mario Bros. Piranha Plant scarf around my neck.
Fauxblademaster Aaron makes “convention safe” video game swords and shields in his spare time. He hasn’t made a ton of them yet, but each of his creations are very detailed. Here’s one of his creations, a fiberglass replica of the Twilight Princess version of the Master Sword, Link’s trusty weapon in the Legend of Zelda series.
The sword is 42″ long and weighs about 3 lbs.
Just about the only thing good about the recent Transformers movie are the new versions of our beloved Autobots and Decepticons. Although I’m sure some of you will say that even the new designs suck. Also the movie changes POVs and angles every nanosecond so we hardly got to appreciate the designs anyway.
In Fallout 3, the AER9 Laser Rifle is a military-grade energy weapon commonly used by Brotherhood of Steel and Enclave troops.
In real life, the AER9 Laser Rifle is a whole mess of wood cobbled together ingeniously by Volpin Props’ Harrison Krix, who was commissioned to build the replica by a close friend looking to attend some convention dressed as the Vault Dweller/Lone Wanderer.
Krix is no stranger to video game props.
At last! The Oregon Trail, the pinnacle of depression in gaming (or should that be the nadir?) will be available on DSiWare. Just in case, you know, you couldn’t already play it on seven or eight other devices in your home, like your computer, iPhone, or toaster.
If you’re one of the thirteen people in the world not familiar with The Oregon Trail, here’s the quick version: it’s a game in which you’re probably gonna die, and if not you, then someone, and it will likely be from dysentery.
One area. A few people. A less-than-epic quest. These are the elements of Awakener, a tiny text adventure that is sure to captivate… at least for a few minutes.
In Awakener, players step into the sandals (wait, is he barefoot?)
Some babies are just hipper than others. You can tell by their expensive t-shirts and awesome accessories. It’s not any baby who can rock a cushy Cthulhu play blanket, you know?
Craftster FicklePegasus has turned an office joke into a handmade gift fit for only the coolest of babies: a soft and cuddly Cthulhu, complete with tentacular arms of love that can hold toys to engage tykes.
