This Artist Makes Even The Horrors of Silent Hill Look Surprisingly Cute

Gorgeous prints of Okami, The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy, while always welcomed, are not a rarity. Charming impressions of Pyramid Head, on the other hand, are a lot more rare. And, admittedly, with good reason. » 9/10/12 8:30pm 9/10/12 8:30pm

My Gamer Friends Need To Have More Kids So I Have Someone To Buy These…

Sadly, most of my friends who do currently have infants are not of any particular nerdly persuasion, and I do not yet have children. Clearly, the only solution is to badger my gamer friends into having babies. » 9/04/12 9:30pm 9/04/12 9:30pm

I Want This Fantastic ED-E Sculpture To Follow Me Around For Real

ED-E and I were inseparable, when I first played Fallout: New Vegas. Well, except for all those times that the demands of the plot separated us. But no matter: his perks, cheerfully sarcastic beeping, and killer laser were great company on an endless trek through the Mojave Wasteland. » 9/04/12 1:30pm 9/04/12 1:30pm

These Awesome Shoes Are What You Get When You Mix Glitter With Gaming

There have been a lot of very neat gaming shoes in the world before, but these ones are my new favorite. Not only because, as flats, they are something I could theoretically actually wear someday, but because they please my inner first-grader with their sparkles. » 8/20/12 7:30pm 8/20/12 7:30pm

Geeky Cross-Stitch Is the Perfect Melding of Retro Game Art with Retro…

Cross-stitch is the perfect medium for 8-bit and 16-bit fan art. Have you ever seen one of the patterns crafters use? They look like pixel art! They're little grids of color, showing which block goes where, in what shades, to add up to a visible whole. And the craft itself is pretty retro, invoking images of samplers… » 8/14/12 8:30pm 8/14/12 8:30pm

The Cutest, Cuddliest Krogan (and Turian, and Asari) You Ever Will See

There are some really cute characters in the Mass Effect series. Liara has charmed many a Shepard with her smile, as has Garrus with his. » 8/06/12 9:30pm 8/06/12 9:30pm

Too Bad You Can't Actually Travel Across The Room With These Portals

Sure, it's fairly cheap and easy to make yourself a Portal-themed mirror with some paint and a quick trip to IKEA. But what really makes a portal fun isn't just its blue or orange halo but rather, that trippy infinity effect. » 7/19/12 7:30pm 7/19/12 7:30pm

Somewhere, There's a Paper Mario Joke to Make About These Adorable…

Clearly, artist George Alexopoulos does not have a cat. If he did, these gorgeous paper figurines would have a half-life of approximately half a second. And that would be a shame indeed. » 7/06/12 12:00pm 7/06/12 12:00pm

A Fifteen-Foot-Long Scarf for All Your Journeys

Journey is, in many ways, the story of a scarf. Or at least, the scarf represents the breadth and depth of the story Journey has to offer. It lists your avatar's story and encounters; it follows you from scorching desert sands to frozen snowbound wastelands. It flutters in the breeze behind you as you fly, or takes… » 7/03/12 11:00am 7/03/12 11:00am

No DLC Can Ever 'Nerf' This Awesome Mass Effect Nerf Gun

This won't help you take out Reapers. And it's probably not such a good choice against Cerberus, either. At least, not if you want them to stay dead after you shoot them. » 6/29/12 8:30pm 6/29/12 8:30pm

There are Wine Glasses, and Then There Are Vine Glasses

Over at Etsy shop The Basement Invaders, Jason and Alex make a variety of Nintendo-inspired goodies. There are Yoshi egg earrings aplenty, but my favorites are the piranha plant wine glasses. » 6/25/12 8:30pm 6/25/12 8:30pm

These Squishy Nintendo Controllers Were Meant for Hugging

Haven't you always wanted to cozy up with an NES? Okay, well, maybe not so much. They do have a lot of sharp edges, and do you even know where that controller has been? I swear I saw the dog licking it yesterday, and then your little brother— » 5/21/12 8:00pm 5/21/12 8:00pm

Give Your Modern Electronics a Handmade, 8-Bit Boost

Does your PC need a power-up? Perhaps a little boost in speed, power, and size? Or maybe it just needs more magic, or a certain sword. Or maybe your iPhone will charge better if you plug it into a pipe! You never know, it might just come back full of coins. Or you could give your phone to a Creeper, if you're into… » 5/17/12 11:30am 5/17/12 11:30am

Smell Your Video Games While You Play Them

Given what some games could smell like (blood, dirt, hellspawn hordes), this is far better than you'd think. Over on Etsy, a haven for geeky goods, seller Bubble and Geek has created a lovely line of fan-favorite home goods. These scented candles draw inspiration from fan-favorites like Doctor Who, Star Wars, and,… » 5/15/12 12:30pm 5/15/12 12:30pm

Mass Effect 2 Statue Made out of Wire by Some Dude's Wife

Kotaku reader Shockwaver (not his real name)[1] wrote, letting Kotaku know that his wife is big Mass Effect. Proof isn't in the pudding, but this Mordin Solus statue. » 6/21/11 10:40am 6/21/11 10:40am

This Life-Sized Portal Turret Replica Has Its Laser Eye on You

Complete with a red laser eye and motion-sensing sound bytes, video game replica prop master Ryan Palser's latest creation is only one assload of bullets away from being a really bad idea. » 5/09/11 1:20pm 5/09/11 1:20pm
