Fan-Art: Yoshi's Island tribute using over 136k dominoes

I always find these dominoes tributes interesting, but all I think about is how there's no chance I could ever do anything like this. My cat would knock these over as soon as I put them down. Why does he always have to ruin my fun?!

Funko is apparently licensed to make Earthbound merch

Funko has put out an infographic showing the different brands and franchises they've obtained licenses for in order to create merch. Tucked away inside the massive infographic is the Earthbound logo.

I guess we'll just have to sit back and wait to see what they're doing.

Jailbroken firmware released for the Analogue Super Nt

Well that certainly didn't take long. The Analogue Super Nt just came out, yet there's already jailbroken software available for the device. Installation is ridiculously simple as well, as all you have to do is download the file to the root of your SD card, then put it into your Analogue Super Nt and turn it on. This firmware lets you play SNES ROMs from an SD card. Let's hope people don't abuse the ability for illegal matters.

ThinkGeek - Super Nintendo Controller Wall Art Set

Like many artists, they took what came before and improved upon it, modernized it, and turned it into something completely new. Boxy frames gave way to smooth curves. Figures that were in straight lines were duplicated and placed diagonally. New features were added to the top, bringing a whole new dimension to the piece. All to give the viewer, the consumer, the gamer, a fuller, more robust sense of control. Because that's what art is: control.

Create the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest pieces of gaming history with this Super Nintendo Controller Wall Art Set. Three framed art pieces that, when hung side by side, form the image of the SNES controller. With a distressed canvas look presented in monochrome purple tone, it will instantly turn your game room into a museum for gaming history.
