Papercraft Illustrations of Classic Nintendo Games

Canadian artist Steph Caskenette‘s papercraft renderings of scenes from classic Nintendo games are wonderful. The touch of paper makes these good old games and memories look exquisite with an added teaspoon of nostalgia. The images were not created by using actual paper, but the digital effect works just as good for the purpose. Prints available on RedBubble.

Video Shows Off Every NES Title Screen, Makes It In 3 Hours

The video claims to cover every single Nintendo start screen in alphabetical order. It covers them all in nearly three hours, taking the viewer on quite a trip. A small chance exists that the list may not be 100% complete, given the sheer number and volume, though we’re inclined to believe they are all there. If you have the patience, run through the three hours of start screens, or maybe just watch some random spots (like we did).

World’s largest NES controller is nearly 12 feet wide


Students at a Dutch university claim to have built the largest NES controller there is. It is nearly 30 times bigger than the original controller, and has presumably been made for some giant. Humans wishing to play would have to stand on the controller to manipulate it, and we guess it would require at least two people to even try to play something.
