Hwhat!? NES Classic Hacked to Play Games from Other Consoles

Lather up and roll a critical hit for hygiene with this Gaming Dice Soap Set. Rub -a-dub-dub, you have an RPG in your tub! This is a gift that keeps on giving. That’s because once you use up the soaps, there are actual D&D dice inside each one.

Space Invaders Backpack: Push Start to Carry

Space Invaders Backpack: Push Start to Carry
Way back in the day, my game of choice on the Atari 2600 was Space Invaders. That was about all I wanted to play, with a little Pitfall thrown in the mix. Oddly enough, I don’t recall ever seeing a Space Invaders machine in the arcade back in the day.

Fully-functional Fallout 4 Laser Rifle Still Won’t kill Preston Garvey

Fully-functional Fallout 4 Laser Rifle Still Won’t kill Preston Garvey
It’s probably safe to say that the least liked character in the Fallout 4 realm is Preston Garvey. He’s super annoying. His laser musket is also super lame. I mean there are weapons everywhere and he keeps using a freaking musket you have to crank to load.

Nyko Miniboss for NES Classic Edition Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Wires

Nyko Miniboss for NES Classic Edition Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Wires
I lobbied all summer the year the first Nintendo Entertainment System hit the market to get one for Christmas. I remember the fancy version console with its little robot that moved stuff most of the time selling for about $250, which was a fortune back then.

+5 Gamer Deodorant: Strong Enough for an Ogre, but Made for a Paladin
Gaming is tough work. Whether you are sitting in front of an Xbox One, or taking part in a D&D campaign, nerds work up a serious sweat. That’s why you need a strong deodorant. Plus Five is the “Ultimate Gaming Deodorant,” adding +5 to your Charisma stat.

Pi Cart Crams a Retro Gaming Emulator Inside the Carcass of a NES Cartridge
I have very vivid memories of schlepping around the local Target store back in the ’80s and coming across the Nintendo Entertainment System display with the robot that moved the spinning thingies around to open doors in some lame ass game on the screen.

Preston Garvey Gets Pissed If You’re a Raider in Nuka World DLC

Preston Garvey Gets Pissed If You’re a Raider in Nuka World DLC
If you have ever played Fallout 4, you know that Preston Garvey can be pretty annoying. He beats on stuff with hammers all day if you leave him behind, and always has more settlements for you to save.

Razer Mecha-membrane Gaming Keyboard Combines The Best of Two Worlds

Razer Mecha-membrane Gaming Keyboard Combines The Best of Two Worlds
Razer has been making gaming keyboards as long as some PC gamers have been around. That’s because the standard keyboard that comes with most PCs doesn’t typically work well for the kind of precision and timing you need in gaming.

Arena Infinity Haptic VR Gun Prototype Can Simulate All Sorts of Weapons

Arena Infinity Haptic VR Gun Prototype Can Simulate All Sorts of Weapons
Back in the ’80s, there were a bunch of places where you could go and play laser tag if you were so inclined. For kids of the future, laser tag will be replaced with sweet virtual and augmented reality games where you can shoot and run until your heart’s content.

Pokévision Finds all the Pokémon in Your Area… When the Servers Work

Pokévision Finds all the Pokémon in Your Area… When the Servers Work
It’s way too hot in Texas to do much of anything outside right now. It’s been 105ºF with the heat index each day this week and the weekend will be even hotter. That means if you want to go out hunting Pokémon, you better do it at night when it’s a cooler 80ºF, but you’ll still enjoy the lovely 98% humidity.

Warcraft Durotan Plush Slippers Look Cooler Than the Movie

Warcraft Durotan Plush Slippers Look Cooler Than the Movie
I love video games, and I love going to the movies, but I skipped the Warcraft flick because it looked like a big stinking turd. I think its rapid plummet at the box office proved my decision correct.

Hyperkin Smart Boy to Launch in December for Android
Remember that Hyperkin Smart Boy case thingy that we saw last year? It was a case that slid onto an iPhone and turned it into a GameBoy from the Nintendo days. Turns out it was originally an April Fool’s joke, but enough interest was there that Hyperkin decided to build it.

This Overwatch Widowmaker Cosplay is Perfect

This Overwatch Widowmaker Cosplay is Perfect
People have gone nuts over Overwatch, and with good reason. Any time a game proves to be this popular, you can count on some epic cosplay showing up with people dressed up like the characters. Sometimes the cosplay isn’t that great, but every now and again you get a pro cosplayer, and it’s hard to tell if you are looking at a real person or a screenshot from the game.
