  • Mario on Apple TV

    This is so cool. It’s great to see the Apple TV is a full-bore mini-PC with some amazing power under the hood. If I didn’t love my the Apple TV on its own so much I’d tear it down and make it a Nintendo 64 in a second. via Giz Read More

  • SNES/NES Controller Wii Mod

    I don’t do this whole Nintendo Wii thing, but I know that if I downloaded some games on the Virtual Console, I’d want to use an actual SNES or NES controller to truly add to the retro-gaming experience. Looks like modder Raphael had the same idea in mind, because he hacked an SNES controller into a USB circuit to hook up to his Wii. If you think it’s as easy as plugging in… Read More

  • Guitar Shaped Like Old School Famicom

    Can someone give this guy a hand for craftsmanship? Not only did a Japanese guy take the time to recreate a Nintendo Famicom (aka NES) out of wood, but he turned it into a guitar, complete with a gamepad headstock. Some of the tiny details include a cartridge right behind the bridge, real, wood buttons on the headstock, and a second controller below the high E string. I’d love to kick… Read More

  • Modtendo #442: Wireless Controllers out of Classic Gamepads

    Our Wii is nice and all, but there’s something beyond retro about the original NES or even the SNES’s simple controller that makes us better gamers. That’s why we like what [mark] has done over at Hack-A-Day. [mark] took apart his tired old controllers and added wireless transceivers to the guts, as well as iPod Mini batteries (they’re light, you see). He then make… Read More

  • Four Versions Of Super Mario Bros. Compared


    Top-left, clockwise: NES, Generation NEX System, FC Twin System, Wii (VC) The guys over at Ars Technica must have some free time. Seems Ben Kuchera took time out of his day to hook up an NES, two NES clones, and a Wii (Virtual Console) and tested the original Super Mario Bros. game for quality. Sure enough, like all good fanboys would, the Wii was chosen as the best looking console. Gee… Read More

  • Expensive NES Games/Shirts Hit eBay

    The Nintendo World Championship NES cartridge is one of the rarest and most sought after “games” for the Nintendo Entertainment System in existence. I’ve seen it around before but only at exorbitant prices. This eBay auction, though, doesn’t just include the incredibly rare cartridge—it comes with an OFFICIAL 1990 Powerfest t-shirt that really captures the look… Read More

  • NES RetroPort Shakes Off The Dust


    Let’s face it our hands and brain are stuck in the past when it comes to playing Mario and Tetris, the Wii-motes just don’t cut it. The spacing of the buttons is all off and it’s just plain awkward. Muscle memory can be a bitch but if you have NES controllers lying around, I know the Nintendo Fanboys do, well you’re in luck. The RetroPort lets you plug-and-play… Read More

  • Super Nintendo Meets TiVo, Falls In Love

    It’s almost always a good thing when you can integrate one of the 10 devices next to your TV with another. It saves room and space, and you’ve got a new toy to play with (kind of). A couple guys with a couple of brewskies (There were no girls, mind you) decided to take apart a Super NES and integrate a TiVo unit into it. The Super NinTiVo, as Jason over at Gizmodo calls it, works… Read More
