Make your own Tetris shelves for next to nothing!

By Dan . May 30, 2007 . 1:26pm

About a month ago I wrote a little story up about some site selling Tetris shaped shelves for an asinine amount (Like $600 a piece asinine). We all had a good laugh but I personally wish I had to a way to acquire said shelves. Well with a little elbow grease and an adventurous D.I.Y. […]

Tetris shelving so expensive you won’t have any money left to put anything on them

By Dan . May 6, 2007 . 1:43pm

Man do I ever hate my lack of motivation. It had to be about 6-7 years ago I thought of an idea similar to this. You’d buy the different shaped shelves and could build out a custom sized/shaped shelf that would’ve fit perfectly wherever you needed it to. The Tetris shaped pieces would give it […]

Have your World of Warcraft cake & eat it too!

By Dan . April 17, 2007 . 11:01am

The whole video game themed cake thing seemed to sail right by me. I really couldn’t figure out what all the fuss was about. With the exception of that sweet Mario wedding cake of course. But then late last night while catching up on some reading, I see this cake here. Made by one woman […]

Secret Wii Birthday channel? Sadly, No.

By Dan . April 13, 2007 . 1:17pm

But it’s a pretty kick-ass birthday gift. This guy, Paul Pope, created this fake Wii Channel and box art for a friend’s 30th birthday party. said it best, "had he finished his recent project a week or two earlier, the Internet would definitely be in an April Fool’s daze." Watch, and be amazed. [youtube]EahXOYSNwMQ[/youtube]

Know how to knit? Then make yourself the coolest socks ever

By Dan . March 9, 2007 . 1:25pm

I never really thought I’d put the word "coolest" in the same sentence as the word "sock" but there it is, there’s no turning back now.  With all the GDC news we’ve had this week, I thought it might be nice to step back, exhale, and take in some footwear inspired by a 30 year […]

Rocking out to Sonic the Hedgehog

By Spencer . August 6, 2006 . 10:12am

The Brazilian rock band, Holus, dropped Destructoid a line with a video of them playing Sonic the Hedgehog themes in one of their shows. Brings back memories doesn’t it? Also somewhat related is another article about a guy who turned a Genesis into a guitar!

Katamari bling

By Spencer . June 29, 2006 . 9:29am

This might appear to be a regular bead necklace, but look closely at the colored beads. They are actually tiny Katamaris made from hand blown glass. Each Katamari is the paltry size of half an inch, but you can easily roll that to the size of a building with the help of the Prince of […]

The MTV reality show staring Joseph Simmons from Run DMC had an interesting surprise in the first episode of Season 2. Instead of using clips of pop music MTV picked out “Saria’s Song” from the Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time for background music! Check out the clip below.

Mario Myspace parody

By Spencer . May 29, 2006 . 2:15pm

This is a pretty funny fan made skit about Myspace and accepting friend requests. Mario says to Luigi in the skit “I have like 400 friends, did you see how many friends I have?” Poor Luigi only has 60 friends.

It’s the perfect get up for anime cons like Anime Expo or if you’re hanging out in Prinny Land, the only place Prinnies don’t explode […]

Overlooked at E3

By Kurt . May 19, 2006 . 11:38am

As much as E3 is hyped as being the biggest video game convention on the planet, it’s really a lousy place to play games. The flashing lights are distracting, the loud noises often make it impossible to hear any sound, and certain people don’t understand that you don’t sit and play a game for twenty […]

Turn your Xbox 360 into an aquarium

By Spencer . May 17, 2006 . 1:23pm

There are two ways to do this. You could hollow out your system and use it as a fish tank or pick up Aquazone: Life Simulator. Aquazone lets players create a virtual 3D aquarium where they can raise fourteen different kinds of tropical fish. Just like real fish your virtual neon tetras need to be […]
