Two great franchises far, far away collide in Call of Duty: Galactic Warfare, a Star Wars-themed mod for Call of Duty 4 created by BlackMonkeys. The mod is a total conversion of CoD 4, and comes not just with new maps but with new player avatars, weapons and even a new killstreak.
When I first saw Minecraft, I wasn’t really blown away by the game. Not even a slight metaphorical breeze hit me. Now at any given moment there are about 3.5 bajillion Minecraft players that are capable of vaporizing my skull with their creativity and passion.
This fan-created Zelda version of Minecraft looks a lot of fun. You’ll be able to explore Hyrule in all its 8-bit glory. If you can’t wait for the next version of the Legend of Zelda, then check out this neat game.
Is there nothing you can’t do with Minecraft? Is this a rhetorical question? The latest and greatest repurposing of the Minecraft game engine comes in the form of a voxelated version of Namco’s quirky ball-roller Katamari Damacy.
Decent Airsoft guns can look quite realistic and menacing. But YouTuber styropyro figured his Airsoft gun wasn’t geeky enough, so he gutted it out and converted it to a laser rifle.

Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of his own right who came up with the simplistic design for middle-income homes he dubbed as “Usonian.”

Ben Heck may have earned fame and fortune (and possibly love) by creating custom video game devices, but that doesn’t mean that that’s all he’s good for. In the latest episode of The Ben Heck Show the master modder set his sights on a loftier goal – making sure hospital employees keep their hands clean.
Up until now the SNES mods we’ve featured involved stuffing PC guts inside the case. Instructables member vigothecarpathian also did the same to an old SNES, but he didn’t stop there – he also added several emulators and games to his console-turned-PC, so now he can play not just SNES but NES, N64, NEO GEO, MAME, Game Boy Advance, C64, Genesis games and more from just one console.
If you’re like me, your old Nintendo GameCube is either gathering dust in a closet somewhere, or you’ve eBayed it by now. But there is one other thing you could do with your GameCube – turn it into a desktop organizer.
YouTube user Chubzdoomer is creating a Super Mario Bros. map for Left4Dead, and its not for claustrophobic people.
