Adding to a long list of pop culture collaborations, which has yielded fare like Star Wars- and Disney-themed kicks, Vans is now working with Nintendo on a new line of branded sneakers featuring characters and power-ups from classic 8-bit NES games, including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and even Duck Hunt.
Joseph Delgado is my new hero. The 21-year-old computer science student at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, took his Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 and morphed the 8-bit NES classic into a virtual reality adventure. It looks super fun.
Add this to the list of things that make me want a Nintendo-themed MOBA more than anything else in my life right now.
One of the most hilariously clumsy things you can do in Super Smash Bros. is walk off the stage by accident. Or jump off. Or "Flare Blitz" off if you're Charizard. We've all been there. But it's particularly embarrassing when you trip and fall in the most Smash Bros. way possible during a tournament match.
Leave it to Duck Hunt, the goofiest goddamn character in Super Smash Bros, to have the goofiest goddamn intro video of them all.
Before the Oculus Rift and the Kinect, there was a time when the 3-button wheel mouse and NES Zappers ruled the earth. It was a much simpler time. These paintings by artist Heather Martinez are just perfect to take us back a few decades.
The fine folks over at Shutterstock and illustrator Echo Chernik teamed up for Valentine's Day, and imagined what romantic pulp fiction would look like with video game characters.
It's mesmerizing to watch AweMeChannel do 3D chalk art of Duck Hunt at high speed. Not only that, but they also animate the chalk art at the end to make it look like the Duck Hunt is "playable." Very awesome.
The Internet is a funny place. Do pretty much anything, and someone, somewhere is going to turn it into an animated GIF. Because there is a law written somewhere that pretty much legally binds us all to this rule.
It's a custom build, of course, as this isn't exactly something Nintendo falls over itself to license, but whatever. It's still a beautiful thing to look at, and being a custom build, we can really admire the work that's gone into it, especially the obstacles and artwork.
I can't vouch for the quality of the Android game Duck Retro Hunt, but I can vouch for the brazenness of the game's name. Why, next thing you know, someone will add cutting edge technology to that beloved Pac-Man game and try to sell us Pac-Retro-Man. I'm holding out for Call of Retro Duty, myself. You?
Just like cats, man's best friend is a returning character in every genre. We've selected those video game dogs—from games both old and new—which are usually portrayed as companions; sidekicks who can both help us with minor tasks and save our asses in difficult situations.
Check out this student-made Flash advertisement for… an iPod skin? We'll take it! Mario and Luigi cope with an invasion straight out of Lemmings and Space Invaders before reinforcements from everyone's favorite Mars-bound marine. Things get 3D, and decidedly less innocent.
For more than 25 years, one of the constant laws of nature—like the speed of light—is the fact a duck hunt dog cannot be shot. Nothing, however, prevents the dog from shooting someone else, as a Utah man learned this past weekend.
When you think about it, Duck Hunt is a pretty scary game. Get past the blue skies and cheery art design and that's one evil dog lurking in the bushes. Something this horror movie based on the Nintendo classic knows only too well.
Next week G4TV.com will begin streaming dark takes on a trio of video game classics.
Alfred Hitchcock meets Gunpei Yokoi in Duck Hunt 3D, the live action movie that picks up where that sinister duck hound left off.
Duck Hunt's erstwhile mallard joins two of its kin in flight for this mixed-media wall art, available via Etsy for $120. The pixels forming the duck are quarter-inch tiles made from salvaged book covers. The entire piece is 21"x26", sold framed with glass. Asshole Dog sold separately.
Today's shooting gallery games take advantage of high-tech infrared sensors and cameras. Back in the days of the original Nintendo Entertainment System, things were much simpler.
