A Little Bit World: Classic Video Game Characters Make The World Their Stage

A Little Bit World: Classic Video Game Characters Make The World Their Stage
Made by Jonas and Simon Schwarzer, A Little Bit World sees classic video game characters emerge from a question mark block. It’s practically the low-budget version of Pixels by onemoreprod and Patrick Jean, though I wouldn’t call it a rip-off.

Donkey Kong 2011

Donkey Kong 2011
Sure, there have been tons of Donkey Kong games on Nintendo systems over the years, but it’s been a really long time since anyone thought of making a game with the beautiful simplicity of the original arcade classic.

Messenger Bags for Old School Gamers (and Everyone Else)

Messenger Bags for Old School Gamers (and Everyone Else)
Certain images from the classics of gaming are burned indelibly into our brains; they are so iconic that they are recognizable not just to gamers, but to nearly anyone who has paid attention in the last couple of decades.

Nintendo Game & Watch (& Television) Casemod

Nintendo Game & Watch (& Television) Casemod
Remember the old Nintendo Game & Watch LCD games from back in the 1980s? These early handheld video games have always had a bit of a cult following, despite their primitive, repetitive graphics, and drab monochromatic screens with cheesy color overlays.

The Cutest LEGO Donkey Kong You’Ll Ever See

The Cutest LEGO Donkey Kong You’Ll Ever See
There was obviously a lot of attention paid to detail in the building of this Lego Donkey Kong recreation, at least as far as those slanting red levels go. Not so much with the figures, but that’s okay–that’s part of what gives this Lego setup its charm.

Donkey Kong T-Shirt Perfect for Gamers and Stoners

Donkey Kong T-Shirt Perfect for Gamers and Stoners
When Donkey Kong first asked the pixelated question “HOW HIGH CAN YOU GET?” it wasn’t rhetorical. In fact, the highest you could possibly go was 100-meters as Jumpman (aka Mario) climbed his way to the top of candy-colored girders to rescue the damsel in distress from the grip of the game’s eponymous ape. On the other hand, this t-shirt from Germany’s LowRez asks the question in such a way that’s just as likely to get a laugh from your stoner buddies as it is to be appreciated by gamer geeks.

Donkey Kong Junior Shower is Truly Bananas

Donkey Kong Junior Shower is Truly Bananas
You really don’t hear much about Donkey Kong Junior these days. If you ever wonder what happened to the little pixelated monkey in diapers, look no further. He’s got a new job keeping watch over naked people as they hose off. This intricate hand-tiled shower was created by Colombian artists Andres Barragan and Miss Vynilos (who seems to have a thing for Mario, Princess Peach and Toadstool, too).

Dk T-Shirt, Now With Extra Bonus Hilarity
If Nintendo’s hulking DK (that’s Donkey Kong to those of us of the old school) is your huge-fisted hero of choice, you might appreciate this t-shirt. Look, it’s got the tie, the color scheme, and… uh… the pecs.

Video Game Belt Buckles: Keep Your Pants on, Pal.

Video Game Belt Buckles: Keep Your Pants on, Pal.
Other than maybe one of those giant glitzy wresting belts, I can’t think of a more rockin’ thing to wear around your waist than one of these nifty retro video game belt buckles. Handmade by artist Natalie Hutcheson (aka “HutchMe”), these metal buckles don imagery of famous icons of classic arcade games.

Donkey Kong Jenga is Monkeylicious

Donkey Kong Jenga is Monkeylicious
Remember the beginning of Donkey Kong? You know – the part where Kong climbs to the top of the building, stomps his feet, and the girders all fall diagonally into place? That’s sorta what this new version of Jenga reminds me of. Shipping this September, Donkey Kong Jenga doesn’t monkey with the orignial Jenga block stacking and removing gameplay.

Mega Man Energy Drink Helps You Beat Down Robot Masters

Mega Man Energy Drink Helps You Beat Down Robot Masters
To herald the launch of much-anticipated game Mega Man 9, an officially licensed Mega Man sports/energy drink is coming out in Japan. The drink will be called “Rockman E Can Drink” because it’s coming out in Japan and Mega Man is called Rockman over there.

Donkey Kong Jungle Juice Doesn’t Taste Like Bananas

Donkey Kong Jungle Juice Doesn’t Taste Like Bananas
Not to be outdone by Mario and his Power Up Energy Drink, it looks like the plumber’s simian adversary just had to have his own peppy beverage. Recently sighted on the shelves over at New York’s Nintendo World Store, the Red Bull-esque energy drink comes in a skinny red can featuring the likeness of the big ape himself, DK necktie and all.

It’s-a Me! Cross Stitch Mario!

It’s-a Me! Cross Stitch Mario!
Oh man, is it still Valentine’s day? I would have completely forgotten if I hadn’t seen this awesome handmade cross stitch Mario card from the rubbishknitter. Sadly, this crafty goodness was made for someone special and isn’t for sale, but I wonder if I could get a special one made for next year if I get my act together now… I think my sweetheart would be most impressed!
