Here’s my very latest building kit: My First Game Console (Sprite Edition)

This is a really fun build, with a lot of great little details. It’s 220 pieces which allows you to construct the main unit, two controllers and two cartridges. And yes, the cartridges can be popped into the main unit — just be sure to blow the dust off ‘em first! 

It’s up for preorder at http://powerpig.storenvy.com/, and it’s expected to ship in about two weeks. Downloadable building guide coming soon!

Limited edition Zelda 3DS & Earthbound labels for… NES controllers? ⊟

This is weird but neat (a common theme for our site): that gold/black design Nintendo used for its limited edition Zelda 3DS and Wii U systems can now be purchased as a skin for an NES controller. There’s also a Mother/Earthbound design — red buttons/pad presumably not included!

GamerGrafx says the peel and stick decals are “precision cut to the exact dimensions of the original NES controller” and feature “a weatherproof glodd polyester material.” The labels are $9.99 each.

Ninja Gaiden II (NES)

Eins der Spiele, die ich so gern hätte, aber wohl niemals bekommen werde.


Ninja Gaiden Episode II, The Dark Sword of Chaos - NES - Tecmo

When I was a kid this game would chew me up and spit me out. But now as an adult…

This game chews me up and spits me out. Why can I not seem to get better at this game?
