Artist Griffon Ramsey often looks to her fans for requests regarding her next YouTube art project. Lately, a lot of her fans have been asking her to make a life-sized version Majora’s Mask from The Legend of Zelda, so she obliged. Needless to say, her skills with a chainsaw are pretty impressive.

Check out the complete adorbz of these new League of Legends vinyl figures by Riot Games. Each figure stands 4-inches tall and there are currently 15 figures in all. Considering how many characters they have to choose from, I’m guessing we’ll see more.

The figures are priced at $25 apiece, so if you want to collect them all, you may need to live off ramen for a bit. But when they’re this cute, it’s worth it.

Head after the break to see more from the series.

bmo_3d_printed_raspberry_pi_retro_console_Mike_Barretta

Our favorite Adventure Time robot companion has come to life thanks to 3D print designer Mike Barretta. This quasi Game Boy/Mac box is actually a working SNES emulator that plays games like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda and Doom. Just don’t ask m’lady for help with your home work.

BMO was built using 3D printed pieces, a Raspberry Pi Model A+, 3.5″ TFT, a pair of 0.5W speakers, 2200mAh battery, and SNES buttons. Although the limbs have been left out of this project, the fact that you can actually turn on and play games with your Beemo totally makes up for it.

These fake games spotted at IKEA look intriguing. I hear Grandmas Auto is all about running errands and mowing down pedestrians in a Buick.

bttf yahtzee

If you like Yahtzee, you’ve probably been enjoying the new themed versions that USAopoly has been releasing (My personal favorite is the Firefly version). The latest reveal comes in the form of this Back To The Future Yahtzee game with a Flux Capacitor.

I don’t need it, but I want it anyway.

Unfortunately, I can’t buy it yet. But it’s out there…in the future.

If you’ve ever played Fallout: New Vegas, then you know that the game’s hardcore mode is pretty darn brutal. Well, YouTuber Many A True Nerd took it upon himself recently to not only beat the game on hardcore mode, but to also complete the game without healing, sleeping or recovering from radiation. Furthermore, he didn’t want to use any items that buffed out his health, and he didn’t want any help from companions.

Many A True Nerd started this challenge last September. After five months, he’s finally done, and his YouTube videos highlight how he did it with only a single health bar.

He notes that he took on this “You Only Live Once” Fallout challenge because he wanted a challenging fresh take on the game:

“I felt like any playthrough wouldn’t be hugely challenging for me…I know this game so well, I know all the exploits and how to manipulate it quite well…I wanted to do something that would completely change the way I had to play this game…I felt that ultimately, the complete removal of healing from the game, having every single bullet that hits me be a permanent mark against me, I felt like that was the way to do it.”

skyrim-bow-3d-printed

The things people can make with 3D printers never ceases to amaze me. This Nightingale Bow from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by Marco Antonio Pérez Morata is a perfect example.

Using the popular design software SolidWorks, Morata created the model concept in about eight hours and then printed 12 pieces with a MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer.

He explains to 3D Print it took 58 hours to complete the printing process.

“I split the model up so that it would require very little post processing. It is split up like a jigsaw so that you can take it straight from the print bed and assemble the pieces. I split the bow in half as not to lose too much detail, but kept the two end pieces as one to give the model more rigidity. I did end up gluing the two halves together just to ensure a solid build.”

If the following videos don’t stress you out, then you definitely have nerves of steel. For the uninitiated, “Item Abuse 3″ is a player-created level in Super Mario World that’s nearly impossible to beat–I say nearly, because someone finally did it. And that someone is the person that designed it.

PangaeaPanga had to use tools (TAS) to beat the level, including one program that accepted button presses on individual frames, but what you are are about to see is still extremely impressive.

He wrote the following on a Super Mario World forum:

“The final episode was ddue to the product of 3 years of on-and-off work, with the approximately 40% of the past 2 months being dedicated solely to this project.”

“And after furiously being frustrated at even beating my own level,” PangaeaPanga said, “it is completed (and hopefully without any major breaks to be found).”

settler_of_catan-box

Settlers of Catan is one of the best tabletop strategy games ever. And with 22M board versions sold worldwide in 30 languages and 50 countries, it’s popularity speaks for itself.

But can it be the basis for a good TV show or a movie?

Producer Gail Katz thinks so since she’s scooped up the TV and film rights. In a statement to Deadline, Gail spoke about her introduction to the game.

“I’ve been wanting to see an adaptation of the game for years, ever since my Catan-obsessed college-aged kids introduced me to it. The island of Catan is a vivid, visual, exciting and timeless world with classic themes and moral challenges that resonate today.  There is a tremendous opportunity to take what people love about the game and its mythology as a starting point for the narrative.”

Her previous ventures include producing The Perfect Storm and Air Force One. Gail is currently working on Pawn Sacrifice, a Cold War drama based on the life of chess legend Bobby Fischer, starring Tobey Maguire, Liev Schreiber, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg.

If you are unfamiliar, the object of the game is to build your roads and “settlements” while bargaining for the land’s limited resources. Within the simplicity of the game design in that of the board layout and card decks, the players quickly become experts in planning and decision making. It’s imperative to develop cunning skills to make friend of foe of your opponents in order to win. Many a nights have been lost to over-enthused players at my house. And it was all worth it.
