If you liked the N64 coffee table, this project will be right up your alley.

Designed and built by Redditor Edgemeredrive, this GameCube logo shelf measures 35″ x 35″ (roughly 3ft each side) and holds about 180 games. The center cube even comes out, revealing a space to set up your favorite Nintendo console. Or, y’know, some other system.

Check out some more photos of the spectacular build below.

Indeed, Redditor midwesternhousewives has discovered a visual cue that enables you deliver a one-hit knockout to Piston Honda in the second fight—something that many gamers knew was possible but, until now, seemed random.

Check out the explanation in the video below.

I have fond memories of my Cleantendo. Though, the technology seems so primitive now. Not like the high-res showers of today. For one thing, the water felt like little blocks pelting my face. And let’s not even talk about 8-bit junk.

Check out another pic of the Retro Gaming Shower Curtain below.

Usually a tear-free event, The Game Developers Choice Awards took an emotional turn on Wednesday during a video tribute to the late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.

It was created by Braid artist David Hellman, Chris Kohler, Raber Umphenour and Shawne Benson. If you grew up playing Nintendo games as a child, this tribute will really hit you in the feels.

Watch it below.

n64

Much like counting the rings on a tree, you an determine the age of a geek by whether or not their first home console had wood paneling. These days it’s all molded plastic and metals and the like, which is cheaper though perhaps less interesting to look at.

Apparently console mod enthusiast Marshall Clark agrees – using various paint techniques, he’s created an N64 that looks like it’s made from wood. It’s a pretty bloody convincing effect that looks fantastic.

Check out a video of Marshall’s handiwork 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.

wooden-nintendo-emulator

This handsome Nintendo emulator is a harmonious blend of classic gaming and gorgeous craftsmanship. The solid walnut foldable case measures about three inches square and is built around Raspberry Pi A+.

The good news is that there’s a chance that the rustic and retro futuristic PE358 system from Love Hultén might actually be available for sale in the coming months, so stay tuned.

Check out more of this fantastic handheld device after the break.

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to play Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. using a virtual reality headset, then you have to check out this video.

As you’ll see, the fighting is fierce, fun and all together over-the-top. Unfortunately, this video will probably be the closest we’ll get to seeing a VR-supported Nintendo game any time in the near future. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently noted the following about VR:

“It’s not fun, and it’s not social. It’s just tech.”

Bowser_Is_Doing_An_Echo_by_silverhammerbro

Maybe it was fate that Doug Bowser rose through the ranks of Nintendo, eventually becoming V.P. of Sales. Maybe he forced his way into the job by holding a princess hostage. Either way, I’m snicker-snorting my way through this post.

According to Nintendo’s tongue-in-cheek press release, Bowser “will oversee a variety of sales-related functions, including Sales, In-store Merchandising, Retail Strategy and Retail Marketing.”

I just hope they keep him away from mushrooms, pipes, plumbers, and bridges. Check out the press release after the break…
