This Nintendo is Made from Solid Aluminum

Analogue Interactive has been known to re-design the classics in interesting ways. Now they’ve gone an extra step with the classic NES and Famicom systems by machining them out of a single solid block of aluminum. Yup. Made this one out of a single block of aluminum…took me about 70…

Every NES Title Screen in One 3 Hour Long Video

Holy sh**! If you don’t want to watch some football game that is happening today you can spend those 3 hours watching every single NES title screen that existed. This compilation put together by NicksplosionFX is impressive (I’ve only gotten about 30 min in so far) and exhaustive. There are definitely…

Infographic: The Nebula of NES Games

I enjoy infographics just as much as the next person. I enjoy them even more when they involve a personal pastime. Cue – The Nebula of NES Games. It’s exactly as it sounds – a galactic nebula of over 700 NES games broken out by genre and year. A must…

NES Flash Drive Works, but is Completely Inefficient

This is one of those mods that is cool in that ‘oh-that’s-neat’ kinda way but is completely useless. I still don’t understand why people mod old Nintendos to do pointless things – I’m still on the bandwagon of just make them work consistently. Then I’ll be impressed. But if you’re…

RetroN 3 Gaming System = 3 Classic Systems in One

Well isn’t this fancy. If a Sega Genesis, a Nintendo and a Super Nintendo had a crazy sex orgy party – the RetroN 3 Gaming System would be the bastard child of said love fest. This actual hybrid system can play all the classic cartridge based titles in one machine….

NoiseES, an iPhone App We Can Definitely Get Behind

Just in case you can’t get enough NES chiptunes – now you can take them on the go with the NoiseES (aka NES see what they did there?) iPhone and iPod Touch app. This sweet little app was developed by Shaun Inman a designer/developer from the Chattanooga, TN area. And…

This NES Guitar Mod Sounds Like Sh**, Go Figure

File this under useless but cool. GetLoFi.com hacked together a perfectly working guitar with an NES to create this working guitar that sounds like its playing through a speaker that was knifed to death. To each his own.  This one of a kind, no really there is only one right…
