A Glorious Dice Collection

dice-collection

Well, glorious unless you have OCD. You could spend hours pouring over dr_lugh‘s dice collection for issues—issues like the one r_kay noticed and commented on with the appropriate level of outrage:

THE TRANSLUCENT GREEN SET IN THE MIDDLE ROW JUST RIGHT OF CENTER HAS THE D12 AND D20 SWITCHED!

Plus the dice around the edge aren’t even all the way ’round. Aggghhhhhhhh!!!!

It appears that the artists and writers at Bungie up and decided to make a children’s book based on Destiny called, appropriately enough, D Is For Destiny. It’s a clever strategy. The time that you should be spending with your kids instead of playing video games can now be spent talking to your kids about video games. Brilliant!

From the world of Destiny, this rhyming alphabet book created by the artists and writers at Bungie takes young readers on a voyage through a universe of adventure. From Four-Armed Fallen to the Mysteries of Mercury and the Moon, D is for Destiny makes exploring the far reaches of the solar system as easy as A, B, C.

Check out some pics from the book below. [click to continue…]

If you want a PC case that looks like it fell out of the incredibly stylized world of the Borderlands series, Ford Ashton’s your man (you can contact him for commissions). He built this custom case as a gift for his girlfriend after her previous PC bit the dust a few weeks back. Right now it’s just the case – there’s no hardware inside – but that’ll come soon.

We reckon it looks Claptrapular. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

Instead of having strippers or a raucous weekend in Vegas, Redditor Ben Brophy aka bentrophy decided to invite his friends over to build and play a giant game of Catan.

It may not be your usual bachelor party, but we like where their heads are at. See the game come together in the gallery below. [click to continue…]

witcher-stamp

Poland is very proud of The Witcher, and rightly so – the series has three bestselling entries across multiple platforms, and has taken the world by storm. Only fitting, then, that Poland would choose to honor it the same way America celebrates its Star Treks and Britain its Doctors Who – commemorative stamps. Specifically, a stamp featuring Geralt of Rivia and branded with The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (and not Wilf Hunt, as I had originally typed, though I’d probably play a game called Wilf Hunt).

The Poctza Polska, Poland’s state-run postal service, issued the stamp this month. It’s a 6-zloty denomination – roughly $1.55. Not in Poland? Don’t worry – eBay sellers are already listing the stamp—at a premium of course.

You may be familiar with those amazing spellbook gaming boxes from Elderwood Academy, but soon this gorgeous Scroll & Codex will be added to the lineup.

The Scroll & Codex is a dice tower with a matching rollable tray that can be kept inside the tower when not in use. Right now, they’re in the prototype stage, but they’ll be launching a Kickstarter later this month and you’ll be able to pledge and get one of these beauties. Check out more pics in the gallery below. [click to continue…]

A live-action version of the beloved video game series Monster Hunter is in the works, if Capcom producer Ryozo Tsujimoto’s statements at the Tokyo Game Show are to be believed.

We’ve no further information – no release date, no casting information, not even any indication of which studio is working on it. Still, though – a Monster Hunter movie! Live-action! Color us cautiously optimistic. Then again, video game movies have been known to disappoint. Just a wee bit.

name-of-the-wind-monopoly

Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicle series is fantastic. As happens with all fantastic things, somebody has made a Monopoly version of it. That’s just how the world works.

Board squares were designed by Reddit user AnUnbiasedSandwich and the board was assembled by Tor.

Much like the trilogy, the game is still incomplete. AUS hopes to digitize the Chance/Community Chest cards and currency at some point in the future but, of course, you could always make your own if you wanted to try and play.

Another day, another set of Funko Pops you’ll want to buy. Is there a 12 step program for Funko addiction? I may need that.

Five new Pops are coming for Dishonored 2: Emily, Corvo, and the Outsider will be available everywhere. The unmasked Emily is a Target exclusive, while the unmasked Corvo will be available only at GameStop. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Building an emulation system out of a Raspberry Pi? Awesome. Making the form factor as tiny as possible? Super cool. Making that tiny form factor look like an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny little Super Nintendo? YES. Did I mention it was made of clay? Holy crap.

YouTube person lyberty5 took the, ha ha, lyberty (No? Okay.) of building a miniature Super Nintendo out of clay that actually plays SNES games. Using a Raspberry Pi Zero as the base and adding a USB hub, lyberty5 mounted the entire thing in a clay body which was then hand-sculpted to look just like the international model of the Super Nintendo console (as opposed to the boxy gray brick American version).

It’s a beautiful bit of precision-engineered emulation awesomeness, and you can check out how it was made in the video below. [click to continue…]
