Custom NES Sega Genesis Controller Perfect for Playing Super Sonic Brothers

Custom NES Sega Genesis Controller Perfect for Playing Super Sonic Brothers
Is this custom Sega Genesis controller with a sweet NES design awesome or sacrilege? I can’t decide. In my mind, the NES was so much more awesome than the Genesis. I do love them both though.

Guy Hacks NES Contra Game to Propose

Guy Hacks NES Contra Game to Propose
No, these screens weren’t accessed via the Konami code. That’s what I thought too when I came across this. Nope. Instead, Redditor Equinn0xX hacked an old Contra cartridge to propose to his girlfriend. He has some mad proposing skills.

LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System: They’ve got Legolas, We’ve got LEGONES

LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System: They’ve got Legolas, We’ve got LEGONES
LEGO creations never cease to amaze me. You can do so much with these little plastic bricks. Is there anything they can’t do? Is there anything they can’t replicate? LEGO is all powerful!

Nintendo R.O.B. Robot: The Lamp

Nintendo R.O.B. Robot: The Lamp
I always thought that Pixar’s original Luxo, Jr. had a whole lot of personality for a desk lamp. But imagine if your lamp had eyes and arms? That’s what you get when you buy the Nintendo Robotic Operating Buddy lamp.

This Engine Probably Has an Extra 30 Horsepower

This Engine Probably Has an Extra 30 Horsepower
A couple of years ago we saw a pretty sweet Scion xB that was modded as an homage to 8-bit gaming. It would’ve been more awesome if it had this engine. It’s a Honda Civic B series engine made to look like a NES controller, complete with the Konami Code at the bottom.

NES Controller Night Light is a Brilliant Idea
The original Nintendo Entertainment System’s controller lends itself so well to geeky reinterpretations thanks to its simple, rectangular form. And now, here’s another cool use for the iconic controller – a night light.

NES-themed Arcade Cabinet: Forward Compatibility

NES-themed Arcade Cabinet: Forward Compatibility
It may not be the best arcade cabinet ever, but Redditor mystery_smelly_feet’s arcade cabinet is no slouch either; especially since he made it with his own two hands. Unless of course he has six hands, in which case this sort of thing is to be expected.

Steampunk Nintendo Controller Coffee Table: NESSSS

Steampunk Nintendo Controller Coffee Table: NESSSS
Here’s a coffee table that would go well with the steampunk NES. It was made by Charles Lushear of Bohemian Workbench using found items. I wouldn’t disagree if you think it’s more junkyard than steampunk, but either way it’s an impressive piece.

Playable Video Game Paintings Come to Life

Playable Video Game Paintings Come to Life
I love a good art exhibit as much as the next guy, but sometimes it can get a little boring just staring at all the static paintings on the walls – never mind the humiliation of getting chastised by the museum security for standing to close to them, like what happened to me a MoMA a couple of months back.

NES Cartridge Ring: Fancicom

NES Cartridge Ring: Fancicom
Etsy artist Jess Firsoff makes NES cartridge rings. All you have to do is insert them into your loved one’s front-loading cartridge ring slot. You can ask her to make a cartridge stud out of any game, including the famous gold cart of The Legend of Zelda.

Power Mitt: Everything Else in Your Kitchen Is Child’s Play
While I’m sure most of you never had the *cough* pleasure of actually playing a game with the Nintendo/Mattel Power Glove, you can certainly pick a working one up over on eBay if you’ve got about $100 kicking around.

Super Doctor Who Time Traveling System Shirt

Super Doctor Who Time Traveling System Shirt
I’m a sucker for all things vintage Nintendo. I’m also a sucker for a good piece of Doctor Who merchandise. So this mashup t-shirt is a win-win in my opinion.

Retro Video Game Cartridge Pillows Perfect for Making a NESt in Your Famicom Room

Retro Video Game Cartridge Pillows Perfect for Making a NESt in Your Famicom Room
I’ve got a confession to make to my wife. Without her approval, I’ve been gradually transforming our basement media room into a shrine to all things geeky – with a decided tilt towards retro video games.

Hyperkin RetroN 5 Console Announced, Skipping RetroN 4
If you recall, a few weeks back, we mentioned that Hyperkin was working on an update to their popular retro multi-console, the RetroN. Well, today, they officially showed off the console, and it’s been renamed the RetroN 5, since it has five cartridge slots.

Famicom-Controlled Robot: Nintendo Needs to Make These, Now.

Famicom-Controlled Robot: Nintendo Needs to Make These, Now.
Back in the 1980s we had a little game system here in the States called the NES. In Japan, that system was called the Famicom. It looked mighty different, but played most of the same games.
