Thanks to the new mini NES, we're all wafting through fits of nostalgia for 8-bit graphics and classic Nintendo games. Jerry Liu loves this era so much, he decided to launch an art project dedicated to reliving our favourite game moments.

The Nintendo Entertainment System of the mid-1980s was a great home console, and 2016's miniaturised NES Classic Edition is a wonderful reimagining. You can buy one, too, as a Christmas present for yourself or your friends — after the first shipment sold out entirely, a second lot, likely the last for the year, is due in early December.
But you'll have to pre-order if you want one; the Classic Mini NES is going to be extremely hard to come by.
The NES Classic Edition sold out everywhere in a matter of minutes yesterday. Nintendo has promised that more are on the way but that means you have to do things like wait and have patience. The internet is here to help. This video is a twofer. You can experience the vicarious joy of opening that sucker up and you can see what's in its guts just by clicking play.
The tiny NES Classic Edition hit stores this week, which got us thinking — does Nintendo have an SNES Classic Edition in the works too?
Nothing shaped my childhood more than Nintendo. Like millions of other little kids, I got a Nintendo Entertainment System for Christmas in 1988. It changed my life. At the age of six, the Nintendo was my first real "gadget," and it was love at first sight. I don't know if I would do what I do today without it.
The Switch is a brand new console from Nintendo. You can play games on it on your TV, but you can also play games on it not on your TV. Yep, the Switch switches: taking the best parts of the Wii U and the PlayStation 4's Remote Play, it's a console that you can take with you and play wherever you are.
ThinkGeek's timing could've been better with this 240-page notebook inspired by the NES console's boxy controllers. It would have been the perfect place to write down level codes, cheats or draw out maps to help you navigate Metroid's endless caves and caverns — when you were eight years old. But hey, it's never too late.
