08/03/2010, Forget about your body as an extension of a gaming controller – here’s a different method to get your gaming fix, although you will be transported back by a few generations where consoles are concerned, as this modified NES allows you to control the world famous rotund plumber using nothing but your eyes. Yes, all you need to do is move those two eyeballs of yours and you’re good to […]
08/03/2010, DIY portable consoles are always cool, and now a user has come up with the HandyDuo which is capable of accepting both SNES and NES cartridges. The device was created from the hardware of a Retro Duo, along with a PSone display, and a 4250mAh battery. It probably won’t challenge modern consoles such as the PSP anytime soon, but it does look pretty cool and retro. Check out a video […]
06/02/2010, This Tron-inspired NES mod must have taken quite a bit of effort to come up with, as it does look good. Despite looking great under the light, the console really seems to come to life when you put it under a black light, giving you that glowing look. The power switches have also been rigged with blue LEDs behind them, glowing to match the rest of the console. Part of […]
05/19/2010, Is your old gaming console trashed, but the games still work? If you’re nostalgic and want to play those games again without having to resort to an emulator, the folks over at Hyperkin might have something that would interest you – the RetroN 3. This gaming console supports games from the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, all in one handy package. If you still have […]
05/11/2010, The NES was certainly king of its day a couple of decades ago, where it reigned supreme in living rooms throughout America as well as the rest of the world when video gaming became mainstream, and kids preferred to lock themselves inside their homes during the summer months, beating up thugs in Double Dragon instead of enjoying the cool, fresh air outside. Bunnyboy decided to include an added capability into […]
05/10/2010, Can’t decide what to do with your aging NES system at home? If you’re not using it to play those nostalgic games anymore, you could always attempt to transform it into a home theater PC (HTPC), which is what this person on Etsy has done. This mod sees a Zotac motherboard, dual-core 1.66GHz Intel Atom N330, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and 2GB RAM stuffed into the original NES casing, making it […]
04/16/2010, While most folks would use Amazon’s Kindle for reading eBooks, it seems like there is a possibility to get Super Mario Bros running on it too, though whether you’d want to play Super Mario Bros on it is a whole different issue. What the developers over at KLab did is they popped a NES emulator for the Kindle, and in the video (after the jump) it’s running in a Kindle […]
04/04/2010, A fan of the ancient NES, and can’t get enough of mods surrounding this old console?> Jere’s a mod that pays homage to the NES controller since it covers part of the engine. Would be cool if the D-pad as well as A & B buttons could be pressed to perform some functions, but otherwise they are just there for cosmetic purposes. Would be interesting to see whether anyone else […]
03/08/2010, Recycle your old NES carts by turning them into musical instruments that do more than just pump out 8-bit tunes – after all, we are talking about NES Harmonicas here. Currently, you will be able to purchase Dick Tracy, Legend of Zelda and Super Mario 3 NES Harmonicas over at eBay with a startin bids of just $7. Any takers? Music lessons not included.
03/05/2010, Ricepuppet has come up with yet another stunning paint job for the classic NES console by introducing a Metroid-colored NES this time round. Lay your eyes on it and chances are you would definitely want one of it in your living room, although the choice of games would be extremely disappointing in the age of the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
03/01/2010, Maybe the next time the missus decides to trash all your old gaming systems in the house you might want to quickly run through the value of the items that are to be disposed. Dave from Kansas got a rather cool deal when he noticed that someone auctioned off a copy of Stadium Events for $13,000, and remembering that he had a copy of it still factory sealed in his […]
01/28/2010, Do you long for the good ol’ days, where you were playing games like Street Fighter II (SFII)? You may not have those consoles in your home anymore, but you could always pick up one of these key chains from Bandai, shaped in the form of a NES controller. The cute part is, if you press a combination such as down, down right, right + punch, it’ll give off the […]
12/08/2009, A bar of soap is no longer something you just use to keep yourself smelling nice after a vigorous workout, while washing away all the grime and dirt. No sir, it has turned into an intricate art form as featured in our past posts. This time round we have the NES controller soap that has been scented with Mountain Dew, the drink of choice for many gamers. A four pack […]
11/10/2009, Fancy turning the classic NES into something different? That’s what this guy did with his, the NEStickle which uses an old NES console chassis to hold a Sanwa joystick and its buttons within. The NEStickle will play nice with a variety of consoles including the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and computers from Windows, Mac and Linux stables. It doesn’t forget its humble roots either, coming with an NES controller that […]
