Classic Mario Bros. Coaster Set

Classic Mario Bros. Coaster Set
1985: A time when we gamers grew sick and tired of the princess being in another castle. When jumping on something first became a method of destruction. When Luigi looked exactly the same as Mario, except for his white and green clothes.

Pting-Pting! It’S a Mario Block Piggy Bank!
Here’s another insanely amazing Perler-beaded creation from lostmitten: the question mark block piggy bank! Lostmitten really got the appearance of the block spot-on. Put coins and even paper bills inside! Or mushrooms and flowers and stars and leaves.

If you remember the NES game M.U.S.C.L.E. as one of the worst (and silliest) timewasters in all of history, then these tiny USB wrestlers are just the thing you want exercising suggestively on your desk. In Japan, these fellows are well-known figures from the Kinnikuman manga.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that console clone maker Yobo was working on a new system that could play games not only from the Nintendo NES and SNES, but also from the rival SEGA Genesis system.

Psp Clone Plays Retro NES Games

Psp Clone Plays Retro NES Games
Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don’t expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years. Another in a long line of cheap Chinese knock-off systems, the 2PG TC8281 handheld plays a mish-mash of questionable 8-bit and 16-bit retro games that come only on special multi-game cartridges.

Famicard NES on a Cartridge Gets Zelda-Fied
Remember the awesome Fami-Card – the casemod which managed to cram a fully-functional 8-bit Nintendo console into an old NES cartridge? Well the Fami-Card is back, and this time the circuit has made its way into a classic Zelda cartridge.

NES Stealth Edition Game Console Pc Casemod

NES Stealth Edition Game Console Pc Casemod
Check out this excellent casemod which is so neat and tidy that you wouldn’t think that it’s anything but an old 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. But hidden beneath the hood of this inconspicuous looking NES is a fully-functional Windows PC, loaded up with emulators for playing games from other consoles.

NES Console Stuffed Into a Light Gun: Bang!

NES Console Stuffed Into a Light Gun: Bang!
Here’s another retro game console mod that’s sure to draw stares. This modder managed to cram a Nintendo NES 8-bit game system into a light gun controller. Go figure that no actual Nintendos were harmed in the making of this system.

Famicase: Artists Make Up New NES Game Cartridges
What better canvas for your creative expression than an old 8-bit NES cartridge? That’s what the recent Famicase art exhibition in Japan was all about. Satoshi Sagagami, who runs retro game shop Super Meteor, organizes the annual event which asks over 50 designers, illustrators, authors and game creators to create their own imaginary games and artwork using old NES carts.

8-Bit Nintendo Does Music Videos

8-Bit Nintendo Does Music Videos
While these brief musical interludes won’t win any prizes for their sweeping cinematography, they do win a place in my heart for being put together using some good old fashioned 8-bit gaming technology. Created using a combination of retro console art (inspired by, but probably not actually created on an NES) and blips and beeps courtesy of the 8-bit Nintendo-powered FamiTracker, these mini videos do a great job embodying the spirit of these musicians, even if they are just represented as chunky blocks of pixels.
