Koopa Shell Backpack: Don’t Let Mario Kick You Around

Koopa Shell Backpack: Don’t Let Mario Kick You Around
Why can’t they create original games like Super Mario Bros. today that have enduring and adorable characters? I’m starting to think we may never get such games again. But hey, at least we still have the classic games and tons of cool merchandise to go along with them.

PlayMore Handheld: Another Portable Emulates Retro Consoles
There have been numerous handhelds out there which can play games from the old 8-bit and 16-bit era consoles. Personally, I have the Dingoo A-320, which handles the job nicely. But there’s a new player in town which looks like it could be good, and it’s also cheap.

Dovahkiin Gutenberg: Skryim Gets E-books
Software developer/video game blogger/Dovahkiin bookworm Capaneus took the scrolls out of The Elder Scrolls V and converted them into E-books.  I have yet to play The Sims: Dragonborn Edition, so I’m not as enthusiastic about this as I perhaps should be, but if this isn’t proof of the wealth of content inside Bethesda’s game then I don’t know what is.

Eclipse DECT Phone: Cool Shape, But Who Needs It?

Eclipse DECT Phone: Cool Shape, But Who Needs It?
The Eclipse DECT Wireless Home Phone definitely looks cool, kind of like those Bang & Olufsen phones, but do people still use landlines enough to justify the cost of a designer-looking phone?

Last Minute: Death As an Art Form

Last Minute: Death As an Art Form
The fact is that we’re all going to die someday. Some pass on sooner, while others live to a ripe old age (sometimes wishing they were dead instead what with all the complications of old age.)

Robot Matroyshka: Matrobotshka?

Robot Matroyshka: Matrobotshka?
There’s something that’s always fascinated me about matroyshka, those Russian nesting dolls. I think it’s that they sort of remind me of Inception – in doll form. You know, a doll within a doll within a doll.

Gumball Pinball Machine: Play it and Chew Gum at the Same Time
