Play Pac-Man in Minecraft: Emulatorcraft

Play Pac-Man in Minecraft: Emulatorcraft
Back in 2011, a stop-motion animation of Pac-Man made in Minecraft blew my mind. And now we have a fully functioning replica of the classic arcade game, perfectly remade within the blocky sandbox game. Now I know what it means to be unable to even.

DIY BMO Portable Retro Console: RaspBMO
We’ve seen a BMO toy with a LEGO case and another one that appears to have a wooden case. Mike Barretta’s take on the living console has a 3D printed case and buttons. That’s right, this BMO works much like a Game Boy in that you use the buttons on its body to play.

Game Boy Games Could Be Coming to Airplane Seat Backs

Game Boy Games Could Be Coming to Airplane Seat Backs
Great news! The crap games in airplane seatbacks’ days might be numbered. No longer will you have to play crummy knock-offs of Flash games that were popular a few years ago with the bored-homemaker-who-turned-the-cleaning-over-to-a-Roomba demographic. Someday soon, you could be playing classic Nintendo Game Boy games, which would be so much better.

GameThing: A Laptop Stand That’s Also a Two-Player Arcade Controller

GameThing: A Laptop Stand That’s Also a Two-Player Arcade Controller
Arcade games are great fun not just because they’re solid games, but because they’re good at being social games. Just about everything is more fun with friends and beer, and Pac-Man is no exception. The problem is that arcades, especially ones with classic games, can be hard to come by, and trying to play on a keyboard just isn’t the same as having a nice big joystick and some clicky arcade buttons to jab at.

R-Kaid-R Portable Arcade: Game & Wood

R-Kaid-R Portable Arcade: Game & Wood
Last year we drooled over Love Hulten’s R-Kaid-42, a wooden arcade console. Love has a new piece for us to wish for this year. He calls it the R-Kaid-R, a self-contained portable arcade machine. It has an 8″ 800×600 display, a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 8 hours and a beautiful wooden case that makes it look like an artifact from an alternate past.
