See? The Dreamcast and the iMac Can Be Friends

What do you get when you combine the power of a Sega Dreamcast with the shitty display of an old 1999 iMac? The iCast, of course. The clutch part of this mod, however, is that creator Logicdustbin was able to squeeze the entire Dreamcast console inside the plastic shell of the iMac. The controller ports even run out the front. ...

Been waiting years for the next hot Nintendo console? No worries, my friend. I have no hatred for the Nintendo DS. In fact, I used to own one a few years ago and loved it.

Pandora: Open Source Gaming Console

Sheesh. What the fuck is this brick? I know I start my new construction job next week but I didn’t expect to be subjected to these kinds of materials. Apparently this thing can not only be used to lay down the foundation of a building, but also for open source and retro-gaming. It has an 800×480 pixel display, a bunch ...

Custom Painted Retro Systems

It can be quite difficult to find classic gaming consoles and games that predate the original Xbox. After all, the Nintendo Gamecube could be considered retro by today’s standards. Scratch that.

The 16-Bit Genesis Bag

Here’s a bag I’d sport proudly in public. It’s designed like SEGA’s 16-bit Mega Drive system, aka the Genesis here in the states. Sometimes you’ve got no choice but to pick sides in a console war. Too bad you can’t get this $55 dollar bag in a Nintendo flavor. SEGA fans only, please. Link [via]

Crap Console Equals Crap Repercussions

I warned you about the Wii. Some of you listened, most did not. Well, I hope all the Wii owners who couldn’t refrain from calling me a PS3/360 fanboy in the comments all crack their LCD screens while playing sub par games. I’ll be a fan of anything and I mean anything as long as it isn’t the Wii. Look ...

It Takes Two To Make A Thing Work Right

Here’s a DIY system that can only be described as “horrendous.” Someone took a shitty Atari 2600 and shoved it inside a shitty SEGA Game Gear system. Both systems had their flaws, so combining the two should result in a big ol’ shitpile of a console. It uses the Game Gear’s backlit screen and uses the Atari for the actual ...

Who would’ve thought that all of those AV nerds in high school would one day work on Best Buy’s Geek Squad. If geeks you know haven’t gotten a job on the squad then your next bet is to check your local Radio Shack.

Software I Actually Bought: MediaLink

I have to come clean for a minute. I haven’t purchased any Mac or PC software in well over three years. I’m a pirating machine and I’d like to think I do it very well. However, I recently got a demo of some software called MediaLink from Nullriver Software. It essentially links my Macs to my Playstation 3 out in ...
