Support the ‘Civilization: Beyond Earth Worker Mech’ LEGO Project

AFOLs are always full of ideas as to what they can do with LEGO blocks, but beyond that, they like building their own kits that are officially backed and made by LEGO. That’s why LEGO Ideas is a great place to look for new projects that you might want to back and make a reality. […]

Punk Archaeologists Dig Out a Ton of 80s Video Games

Punk’s not dead! At least to these archaeologists who are part of a relatively recent movement called “punk archaeology”. While “punk” and “archaeology” are not usually used in the same sentence (at least in a casual conversation), punk archaeology is an alternative branch of the science which studies more recent history, as opposed to digging out ruins […]

Concept Video Game Cat Scratchers for Cat Ladies

…and gentlemen, too. Because we’re for equality like that. For people with a cat (or cats) at home, you know you score points with your overlord(s) if you buy them awesome cat scratchers and give them catnip now and then. And then there’s the fact (or misconception?) that cats and geeks are the perfect pair… […]

Don’t Let Your Old Games Gather Dust!

Walk Down Memory Lane With These Retro Battlestations

Did you know that video games were invented way back in 1958? We can thank Willy Higinbotham, a physicist no less, who created a video game played on an oscilloscope! It was like a pingpong game, so you can imagine how that went. Needless to say, video games have evolved into so much more, especially […]

The Greatest Gamer Fears

Hi, my name is Noemi. I’m an Injustice: Gods Among Us addict. My greatest “fear” is that the servers go offline, and I can’t get my battle rating up for the week’s tournament. If you don’t think that’s silly at all, then you probably spend quite some time gaming yourself; and if that is the […]

8-Bit Avengers Video Game!

The Avengers in 8-bit. That general topic is not new. We’ve seen The Avengers in 8-bit before, but what if there was an 8-bit Avengers video game??? I know many of you would play that in a heartbeat, but unfortunately, no one has gotten around to developing that kind of awesomeness yet; at least not […]

Classic Video Games Reimagined as Romance Novels

This begins today’s series of posts all on popular video games and movies reimagined as books!
