Put An Entire Arcade On Your Desk With These Immaculately Detailed Miniature Replicas

There was a time when playing video games with your friends meant visiting your local arcade and crowding around a Pac-Man or Galaga machine. Those days are long gone, but for ¥2759 ($35) a pop, you can relive some of that nostalgia and build your own tiny arcade with these highly-detailed miniature replicas.


This Adaptor Lets You Use Modern Wireless Controllers With Your Classic Apple II Computer

To date, Analogue has released adaptors allowing nostalgic gamers to use modern wireless controllers on both their classic NES and Super Nintendo consoles. But the company, working with 8Bitdo, is turning the clock back even further with a new wireless adaptor for the 40-year-old Apple II and IIc computers.


Here's Your First Look At LEGO Dimensions' Knight Rider

June brought us the wonderful news that LEGO Dimensions — the video game that gives you the perfect excuse to buy more LEGO sets — would be massively expanding with pop culture franchises spanning the past few decades. In the preview we got glimpses of The Goonies, the A-Team, even ET, but we’re finally now getting our first look at Knight Rider.


How Much Does Your Favourite Video Game Character's Outfit Cost?

Video game characters have it easy: they never have to change clothes. Whether they’re saving the world or just catching Pokemon, our heroes — Master Chief, Link, Mario, Samus Aran — are always wearing the same damn thing. But their outfits aren’t always cheap. Master Chief’s get up can cost over a 100 million dollars. Even Link’s elf get up rings up over a thousand bucks. Not everybody can just wear a tie and eat bananas like Donkey Kong.


A Clever Way To Make The Legend Of Zelda Beat Itself

Arbitrary code injection is fascinating stuff. Intrepid gamers have discovered hidden glitch worlds, turned Mario into Flappy Bird or performed a standard action so many times that it crashes the game. The original Legend of Zelda is susceptible too — as glitch hunter Sockfolder found out — and executing the following instructions skips past the vast majority of the game’s quest.


Ratchet & Clank Will Keep Your Kids Distracted, And You Won't Claw Your Face Off

We all know the drill. There are three kinds of movies for kids: 1) Ones that are for adults, just as much as kids (Pixar and so on), 2) Ones that adults can get some enjoyment out of, 3) Ones that kids like, but adults will claw their faces off. Ratchet & Clank belongs to the second group, and it’s perfectly fine.


Captain America: Civil War, Re-Imagined As The Marvel Vs Capcom Sequel We've Always Wanted

Video: It is a crying shame that we probably won’t see another entry in the Marvel vs Capcom fighting game series for quite some time. But while we dream of that, at least this clever edit of footage from Captain America: Civil War can let us ponder what might have been.


Watch Someone Hand-Carve A Very, Very, Very Small, Working Super Nintendo

Sure, YouTuber Hugo Doris could have 3D-printed some slick shell for his super-mini Super Nintendo, but when you’re making a one of a kind object, why not craft it by hand?


Elite Force Is Still The Greatest Star Trek Video Game

Star Trek‘s ideals don’t sit all that well with your average video game. Trek‘s idealistic view of the future mostly dealt with conflict through discussion rather than liberal phaser blasts to the face, and video games are usually the other way around. That’s why a first-person shooter in the Star Trek universe should never have worked. Until it did.


Guy Builds Gorgeous Sequencer Just To Test Video Game Arcade Buttons

When Mike Sannikov was designing an arcade game controller and needed to test which brand of buttons would work best, he didn’t just read some online reviews — he bought a small sampling of buttons and used them to build this gorgeous music sequencer as a test bed.
