Minecraft Acid Trip Caused by Mod, Not In-Game Mushrooms

Project iKinect Co-op Game Uses Kinect and iPhone as Controllers
If you thought the PS3 Kinect hack was absurd, then this Kinect hack from Rockmoon, a mobile game development company based in Singapore, will be no less ridiculous – a two-player video game where one player plays using a Kinect while the other player uses an iPhone as a controller.

Doom 2 Running on PocketBook 360 Plus eReader

Wii UNLimited Edition: Unnecessary But Cool Water-Cooling

Wii UNLimited Edition: Unnecessary But Cool Water-Cooling
I get the point about cooling an Xbox 360. Those suckers overheat pretty quickly, but the Nintendo Wii? I’ve never heard any complaints over that console’s heat, but that didn’t stop Angel OD from the Bit-Tech Forums to water-cool his Wii, in this completely superfluous hack.

Box Stories: Miniature Video Game Vistas

Box Stories: Miniature Video Game Vistas
These amazing little diorama boxes tell stories. Not all of them are video game related, but my favorite ones include a scene from Super Mario Bros and one from Tetris. Gatz’s Box Stories are pretty cool once you check out all of the details that he’s included in his scenes.

Donya iPhone Gamepad Stickers: Five Buttons to Play Them All
Most of the best games on the iPhone and other touchscreen mobile devices make use of touch input, but sometimes there’s just no substitute for button-based controls.

However, unlike the original console, the Xbox 360 Slim isn’t supposed to overheat much, but you know what, it’s probably better to be safe than sorry.
