Okay so maybe not exactly “Live Action” but it is as close as you’re going to get unless someone decides to go down that horrible path. I don’t know why exactly but I really enjoy watching cartoon voice talent doing their thing in front of the mic. Something about breaking the fourth wall or seeing the man behind the curtain. I’m really happy to see these guys at their best. And seriously, who would have every thought the guy that does Zim’s voice would be so chill on stage.

This brought me back. Well, except for the Pokemon theme. I never really watched that as a kid. I did rock some TMNT and Ducktales!
Let me know what you think!
I was floored by this video. The game Dungeon Twister is a wonderful 2-player game by Christophe Boelinger. I haven’t had a lot of experience with it but the few times I have played I loved it. Now they are making a version of it for the Xbox 360 and PS3. I’m definitely going to have to check it out. Despite the hilarity of ogres and mages dancing to a rap song the game itself is pretty deep yet funny in the tongue in cheek kind of way and I am glad that they could make a funny video that holds that kind of humor for the game.
This is a documentary in process that is near and dear to my heart. It is all about board gaming (specifically euro board gaming) and the collectors within the hobby. If you have a second check out the video and head over to Kickstarter.com and pledge. Even $1 will help get this great documentary made about an even greater hobby.
Here is the link to the main website for the doc as well.
Looks like Cal Henderson from iamcal.com decided to design his own interlocking Carcassonne game out of Legos. The design is amazing and I would love to make a set myself. However, after reading the comments where he said it would cost upwards of $25 a tile to order the individual pieces through LEGO I believe I will have to hold off.
I really do love the way this looks. Even if the tiles would be hard as crap to place in a crowded board.
I came across this this morning on Dueling Analogs and thought I would share it with everyone. It is a very impressive mod to the N64 gaming console. The guy (Hailrazer) basically took a Gameboy Advance carrying case and put a Nintendo 64 inside. For comfort sake he took out a couple of the least used features like the d-pad and added a dummy Select button. Other than that it is a complete Nintendo 64 in the palm of your hands. I love this idea and I hope that maybe Nintendo will buy the rights to it and release a “Classic Gaming” version of it or something.
I just recently came into possession of an old N64 console and I forgot how much I loved everything about it. I had all of the great games like Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong, Golden Eye, and Banjo and Kazooie. I would probably have to say it is my favorite console of all time and it still holds up. I just need to find a way to pay the “Vintage” prices on ebay to get a copy of Super Mario 64. I never did buy it and only got to play it at the demo station in out local Media Play. Ah those were the times.
Anyway, here is a very in depth video about how the gaming rig works. He even shows off a couple of games on it.
Even better! I just came across another Portable 64 that this same guy made. He called this one the Darth64. I have to say I like the look of this even better. It looks like it might be hard to hold for extended periods of time though.
Andrew Clifford has designed a very nice new Scrabble board. It features some great wooden designs and MAGNETS! Basically it comes in a box and you put the six pieces together to form the board. Then your individual tiles have magnets in them to hold them on the board. Magnificent!
Another perk of owning this is you get to choose your typeface or you can have them send you a mixture of all types.
I love the way this game looks and I can’t wait to see how to get one. I believe the game is not out yet but you can sign up for their mailing list and they will keep you up to date on when they will release it.
