This image from Auir2blaze is a list of inflation adjusted costs of several gaming consoles, if they were to reach the market today. It is quite an interesting list, pitting up the cost of the console on launch, versus what its cost would be today, adjusted for inflation. Notably enough, all costs fall quite in a similar range. The creator of the graphic says that the costs are based only on inflation and do not take into account other factors like average earnings, median income and buying power.
The gun in the video is a 9mm MP-443 Grach, used quite commonly in the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. Now this is a scale replica of the Russian made semi-automatic weapon, built all in Lego. The detailing itself is masterful, with several elements taken care of. What sets it apart is that the gun is fairly “functional.” It doesn’t shoot, which is a bummer, but the pistol does have details like a removable clip and slide action to match the gun.

In the fifth installment of Mario Warfare, Peach gets her army of video game heroes ready, and onwards they march to Bowser. While the last one referenced Fight Club, this one gives a nod to Lord of the Rings.

Get your vaping on with GameCubes modded into hookahs. These and several other gaming inspired custom vaping accessories are the work of LittUpCustomEcigs.
If you start stripping things down, they start getting ridiculous. It’s especially true for video games which tend to be ridiculous at the core.
Super Mario New York City subway map takes a detailed enough look at the NYC subway, while staying true to the world of Mario. Comparing subways with pipes, you could see exactly how much Mario would love the idea, though he’d probably be shocked at how clogged NYC’s travel pipes are, as compared to the warp pipes of the mushroom kingdom. The print is priced at $25.
So some enterprising person modded the livery of their PlayStation 4 to the NES.
Few things can match our addiction to the classic 8-bit games of Nintendo. While the games themselves might not be around with the same fanfare that they once used to be, we can still take a sip of the nostalgia, and make it better by tinging it with alcohol. Entertainment Flasks are styled like the videogame cartridges of yore, with their plastic molds made capable of handling booze. Available for pre-orders on Kickstarter.
Showing a fresh serving of his skills, Ken Block has another Gymkhana video up. For this course, he drives his 650 horsepower Ford Fiesta through a course that looks a wee bit like a video game race track. The association is easier to understand, considering the video was made in collaboration with EA’s Need for Speed: Rivals.
