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.
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.
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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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…
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.
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.
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—
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…
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,…
A fully functional Nintendo controller coffee table. Wait, let me repeat that. It's a fully functional Nintendo controller coffee table.
Kotaku reader Shockwaver (not his real name) wrote, letting Kotaku know that his wife is big Mass Effect. Proof isn't in the pudding, but this Mordin Solus statue.
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.
