Arcade Cabinet Alarm Clock: Good Morning, Gamer!

Arcade Cabinet Alarm Clock: Good Morning, Gamer!
Beyond simply making a noise, today’s alarm clocks are armed with varying techniques to get us out of bed. Some of them try to scare you with the voice of the Sith Lord, some are voice-controlled, some make you exercise, and some are just really, really loud.

Marcus, Don’T Play That App on an iPhone… Psp Rulez!

Marcus, Don’T Play That App on an iPhone… Psp Rulez!
It looks like Sony has started attacking all of those shallow and mediocre game apps on smartphones. Personally, I loaded up my Cybershot phone hundreds of free games that I downloaded. Why pay for something that you can get for free?

Naked Super Mario Isn’T About to Offend Anyone but Sure Looks Strange

Naked Super Mario Isn’T About to Offend Anyone but Sure Looks Strange
I’ve never spent any time wondering what a naked Super Mario would look like, but apparently some people do think about this and this is the strange and disturbing result. This digital image was created by someone named Mad Mario, who has since deleted his blog.

…but it’s a hell of a lot funnier too: Poor Zaeed. Check out the whole pic at Unreality.

The Cover Came First: Games Based on Famicase Art

The Cover Came First: Games Based on Famicase Art
While a lot of games probably started out with just a sketch of a landscape or of the main character, I doubt there’s many games out there where its cover art inspired the actual game. But that’s exactly what the members of TIGSource did, turning Famicase art into actual games.

Gorilla Gets Nintendo Ds and Trades It for an Apple

Gorilla Gets Nintendo Ds and Trades It for an Apple
Sure, gorillas have opposable thumbs and can rip a man’s arm off and beat him with it, but they lack those leet gaming skilz. You could totally take this gorilla in a game of Donkey Kong.

4-Port PS3 Controller USB Charger for $8: No Reason Not to Buy One

4-Port PS3 Controller USB Charger for $8: No Reason Not to Buy One
…unless of course you already have a charger. Or you only have one controller. Or you don’t have a PS3. Seriously though, while this isn’t the cheapest PS3 controller charger out there, I’m pretty sure it’s the cheapest 4-port charger.

Dustforce!: Leap and Sweep Platforming

Dustforce!: Leap and Sweep Platforming
Watch out Mario, you’re not the only blue-collar platformer who’s also in the saving the world business. Currently in development by the Hitbox Team, Dustforce! stars a high-jumping, energetic sweeper. He hates dust and dirt so much that he won’t even touch gold coins until he’s cleaned the treasure chest where they’re stored, whereas Mario just leaves the rubble of the bricks he breaks in his wake.

Starcraft 2 Noob School: Space Military Academy

Starcraft 2 Noob School: Space Military Academy
You’re stoked for the just-released StarCraft II, but haven’t played the first game, or you’re just not good at RTS games. You’ll probably get through the single player campaign after enough tries, but going against other players is an entirely different story.

Starfox T-Shirt is a Bit Too Realistic

Starfox T-Shirt is a Bit Too Realistic
I don’t think Corneria would have won the Lylat Wars with this bunch: Those aren’t fighters; they’re hawk food with glass bowls over their head. Slippy’s much more adorable in that form though. You can order the Do A Barrel Roll!

Hot Touch Arcade Emulator: Fake Pinball Machine Accepts Real Coins

Hot Touch Arcade Emulator: Fake Pinball Machine Accepts Real Coins
Ben Heck chose to make his Bill Paxton pinball machine the old fashioned way, using actual flippers and tunnels and whatnot. But there’s also another, less complicated way to make a pinball machine – by running an emulator on a computer.

P0nd: a Video Game That Asks if It’S Art

P0nd: a Video Game That Asks if It’S Art
One little Flash “game” has caught the attention of the whole world. Okay maybe not the whole world, but at least the commenters of Rock Paper Shotgun, one of the video game blogs where pOnd was featured.

Condoms for Retro Gamers: Let the Games Begin!

Condoms for Retro Gamers: Let the Games Begin!
Everyone needs condoms, but this is the best condom packaging that I’ve ever seen. These ones really stand out. There’s a reason why. They were made for geeks. All of the packets feature different parodies of classic Game Boy games.

IPad Arcade Cabinet: From Prank to Product

IPad Arcade Cabinet: From Prank to Product
I’m sure most of you who saw ThinkGeek’s iCade April Fools’ prank wished it was real. Your wish is about to be granted! The folks at Freekade make tiny arcade cabinets for a living, so it’s not that hard for them to turn the iCade into a real product.

I Dream in Retro: This is You on Video Games

I Dream in Retro: This is You on Video Games
Have you ever had video game-like dreams? Mike aka OrinCreed had one such dream. Fortunately, he and his friends were able to translate his dream into a video. Mike says I Dream in Retro is “based heavily on a dream I had that was caused by a long day of playing NES, SNES, and Genesis.

Onlive Running Splinter Cell Conviction: Whaddaya Know, It Works!

Onlive Running Splinter Cell Conviction: Whaddaya Know, It Works!
I’m sure a lot of you have heard about OnLive, the gaming service that streams games to you from computers much more powerful than yours. Lots of people – myself included – were skeptical about the quality of service that it could provide.
