Eh, maybe not when it comes to gaming, but when it comes to retro gaming art, I definitely have a soft spot for the pixelated stuff.

What did the big robot say to the little robot? “Get in me belly!” At least that’s the way this amazing automaton works. The larger-than-life wood and metal robot features a tiny little robot inside its gut, and it looks like he’s the real brains of the operation.

Super Mario Afghan is Super Special
I’ve been keeping my eyes on the work in progress for this impeccable Super Mario Brothers afghan throw, and I’m happy to report that the masterpiece is finally complete.

Bioshock Gets the Anime Treatment
While Bioshock was one of the darkest and bone-chilling games I’ve ever played, this recent gamer fan art somehow manages to make those creepy Little Sisters just a little less imposing.

Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed

Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed
Who says that Star Wars has to be all about manly things like lightsabers, Death Stars and Darth Vader? Why can’t it be about butterflies, puppies and playing with dolls? Crafter Sammi Resendes of Geek Central Station sure thinks that the classic sci-fi epic can be just as sweet as a roomful of cuddly kittens rolled in confectioners sugar.

Fun Sonic the Hedgehog Necklace Rules

Fun Sonic the Hedgehog Necklace Rules
Look at this playful shrinky plastic Sonic necklace from Etsy seller geekchicboutique. It’s very cool, but just because I have been charmed and distracted by it doesn’t mean I’ve forsaken my madcap Tetris obsession. I mean, even though the elusive gold rings Sonic loves to collect have been thoughtfully included here doesn’t mean I’ve lost my focus.
