These kitties are giving Mario a run for his money. Etsy seller CatastrophiCreations has updated their original Mario Warp Pipe Cat Complex with version 2.0 and added a full Mario-themed wall set option.

It looks awesome, but I gotta say—where are the power ups? What, no fiery catnip?

pandemiccthulhu-00

Geeks like two things: Bacon, and Cthulhu. While science has yet to find a way to combine these two great tastes, geekdom has wasted zero time in combining them, individually, with other things.

Adding to a pile of Cthulhu-themed stuff that’s already threatening to topple over and level your neighborhood is Z-Man Games’ Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu. It’s a Lovecraftian variant of the popular Pandemic tabletop board game. Players take the role of a group of investigators looking to close a bunch of portals through which indescribable horrors might emerge.

We don’t have full details of how this new version of Pandemic will play, but Ungeek reports that there’ll be some kind of sanity mechanic added to the gameplay (because why wouldn’t there be?). Images have also revealed three of the seven investigator characters, which will include a Magician, Hunter and a Reporter. Three of the twelve Old Ones cards have also been revealed and include Shuddle M’Ell, Azathoth, and Cthulhu.

Z-Man Games is slated to reveal more details soon, along with a debut at GenCon this summer. Check out an additional pic below.

Over a period of two weeks, Imgur user tylerfulltilt hand-built this spectacular NES-themed entertainment center using some plywood, some clever paintwork, and this lowboard from Overstock which was heavily modified to look like the NES console itself.

We’re properly impressed with tylerfulltilt’s work, though I really want that TV to be bigger and lower. Check out the full gallery detailing the build process after the jump.

When you’re a kid, there are few things you want more than the toys and games you can’t have. Nobody knows this more than Reddit user one23abc – he and his brother desperately wanted to play the Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card games, but they couldn’t afford them.

So they built their own card game from the ground up—and it’s fantastic.

Pugmire

Pugsteady and Onyx Path Publishing have teamed up to create a fantasy tabletop game called ‘Pugmire’, and they’ve created a Kickstarter project to make it happen.

What is Pugmire? Well, creator Eddy Webb describes it as “Lord of the Rings meets Planet of the Apes, but with dogs”. I probably don’t need to go on because you’re already sold. I’m guessing a lot of people felt that way because the project funded almost instantly—and now they’ve started opening up all sorts of stretch goals.

What started out as a campaign to create a full-color, 184 page hardcover book has expanded to include Pugmire dice, t-shirts, new short stories, cards, and even an audiobook. Once you pledge, you also get a downloadable and playable version of Pugmire that includes some of the content planned for the book.

Just watch the video below. You’ll see why so many people want to help make Pugmire happen.

“I only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials” is one of the most baffling things an actual human can say with their mouth, but those of you who enjoy the capitalism breaks in your sports events should be pretty bloody happy with this commercial from The Pokémon Company for… well, Pokémon. Specifically, the game’s 20th anniversary. Blimey, I feel old.

As the name implies, the Arcade Hotel caters to gamers. Each of the 36 rooms comes complete with consoles and games. They even have handhelds so you can play multiplayer at the hotel bar. Amenities include a late checkout, comic book library, free tea and coffee and a welcome drink when you arrive.

The real charm, however, is the idea behind the hotel. You can tell that owner Daniel Salmanovich wanted to create a relaxing place for people to come hang out and enjoy their stay. Looking at the pictures from their opening night party and gaming competition, I think it would be a real blast.

Then again, a concept like this might make more sense as a “gamer spa” of sorts. A place where all of your needs are catered to, and you don’t feel compelled to make the most of the outside world. After all, if I’m in Amsterdam, the last thing I would want to do is hang around the hotel all day.
