Pokémon X & Y Starters Stuffed Toys: The Only Time You Can Choose All Three

Pokémon X & Y Starters Stuffed Toys: The Only Time You Can Choose All Three
The release of Pokémon X and Y is still about three months away. But because we live in the age of pre-orders, Banpresto is already dangling plushies of the game’s starter monsters to fans. You don’t have to choose between Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie either, because you can order them as a set.

I Wish I Could Have Ate a Bit of This 8-Bit Mario Cake

I Wish I Could Have Ate a Bit of This 8-Bit Mario Cake
I always wondered how clean it was down in those pipes where Mario would duck into. I certainly wouldn’t want to jump into some green pipe sticking out of the sidewalk. While a real sewer pipe might not be so pleasant, this one is filled with nothing but tasty goodness.

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.

Retro-Bit Wireless Hypermode N64 Controller: Sit Back and Enjoy the Classics

Retro-Bit Wireless Hypermode N64 Controller: Sit Back and Enjoy the Classics
Corded controllers led to one of the iconic images in many homes in the 80s and 90s: kids sitting on the floor, controller in hand and looking up at their TV. But if you’re TV is too big to view up close and your ass is too lazy to get off the couch, keep an eye on Retro-Bit’s Wireless Hypermode retro controllers.

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.

Evolution of Nintendo Controllers: The Lamp

I could use a new bedside lamp, but I’m pretty sure my wife would make me sleep in the doghouse for a week if I bought this one.

Verso Game Boy Pillows: Now You’re Sleeping with Nostalgia

Verso Game Boy Pillows: Now You’re Sleeping with Nostalgia
We’ve seen a Game Boy pillow before, but these “GameKid” pillows by Brazilian shop Verso are soooo much cuter. They come in different colors and are even printed with different games on the back. Here’s the original dirty white model putting on his best Old Snake impression:

EA Says No Wii U Games: Is Nintendo Dying?

EA Says No Wii U Games: Is Nintendo Dying?
Historically, Nintendo has been one of the strongest companies in all of the gaming realm. Back in the 80s, the Nintendo game consoles were the most popular out there and even only a few years ago the company did exceedingly well in both the mobile and console markets.

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.
