Check out this fan-made concept for a Switch mini

Obviously, there’s no detachable Joy-Con in this design, and it wouldn’t come with a standard dock either (although, the designer claims it can still be used with the dock–except I don’t actually believe his design would fit in a standard dock without the analog sticks getting in the way), but it’s got most of the basics covered.

You can read more about the idea here.

Oh, and it kinda reminds me of this. . . . 😉

This stylish Pong coffee table is edging ever closer to commercial reality

I posted about this a while back. And now, with the Kickstarter coming to an end in a few days (less than two thousand dollars short of the target $250,000), it’s the perfect time for an update. Thankfully, it looks like they’re almost certain to get the money required in order to take the table into full production, which is great news. But, if you want to support the project, there’s no better time than now. I’ve added the Kickstarter video below, just so you can check it out quickly while you’re here:

And, sure, the final design isn’t quite a slick as the older original prototype—I love the curves on the original—but it’s still pretty sweet:

New

If I had the money for a sweet retro-gaming coffee table like this, I’d definitely consider getting one.

I need the unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium

Man, Bitmap Books is knocking it out the part with these compendiums. If I had the money, I’d buy all of them. Here’s the link to the Kickstarter if you’re interested in backing the project.

I really hope I can visit the Enterprise-D in my shiny new Oculus Rift consumer version

So much nostalgia rushing through my veins watching this. I just hope there’s a way to get it to work on my Rift once I get it set up. . . .

Someone has created a fully working Pokémon Red game inside Minecraft

I have no idea how in the hell people do this kind of stuff—this is coming from a guy who has made seven mobile games (also playable on PC) and one Steam game at this point—and it truly and utterly blows my mind every single time.

Regardless of the fact that this is just a random dude making something [unbelievably cool] in Minecraft in his spare time—purely for fun (even though it took him twenty four months to complete)—minds like this are at the core of all the greatest things mankind has ever done in the history of his short time on this planet.

Beyond respect.
