Back in November, I posted an old NES console that had been turned into a guitar completely expecting to never see anything like that again.  Well, I am very happy to be wrong!

Apparently, a really cool computer engineer by the name of Jeri Ellsworth took an old Commodore 64 and turned it into an electric bass guitar.  She was seen skating around at Maker Faire in California (which took place this past weekend) while wearing this awesome Commodore 64 bass.  Of all the custom guitars I have posted on here, this is one of my favorites!  Awesome job Jeri!

I’ve never tried any of the LEGO video games whether they are Star Wars or something else.  However, I can’t seem to get enough of the awesome LEGO video game inspired stuff that people create.  In this case, a LEGO Stormtrooper cake!

This awesome LEGO Star Wars inspired Stormtrooper cake was created by Dazey Cakes.  For those that are interested in the yummy details, the arms are made of Rice Krispies Treats and legs and body are made of cake.  Of course the entire thing is covered in fondant which I suspect was the only non-yummy part of the cake.  Fondant makes for a great looking cake but I have never had any fondant that I would call delicious.

What have you been doing to kill time while not being able to connect and play Diablo 3?  Well, you could always do something like this and give your nails a really awesome Diablo 3 style paint job!

DeviantART user Undomiele is the creator of this impressive Diablo 3 fingernail art that portrays both the High Heavens and Burning Hells.  There is a little timelapse how-to video below that shows the making of these Diablo 3 nails so if you are curious what kind of work went into making this rather impressive fingernail art, make sure to watch it!

Although I don’t often play them all, I still have every game console I have ever owned.  Sadly, I don’t really have any place to have them all hooked up so most of them are sitting in boxes in storage or in my basement.  Well, one gamer who has a couple more consoles than I do apparently decided to have all of their systems ready to go at any time and ended up creating this amazing entertainment system to house all of their consoles.

To say that I am jealous would be an understatement.  Maybe someday when I have some room, I will be able to do this in my house.  Until then, I will drool over this person’s setup.

It seems like the gaming world has been overtaken by Diablo 3 hype this week.  I’ve seen a ton of mixed user reviews about the game so far that range from a 9/10 to a “this crap doesn’t work!”  Personally, I usually wait until the first patch for a game comes out to avoid any of these launch headaches that everybody seems to be experiencing.

No matter what your thoughts are about the new game, the one thing I think we can all agree on is that this Diablo 3 Demon Hunter cosplay is absolutely amazing!  I don’t know who the cosplayer is that is sporting this amazing Demon Hunter cosplay, but this picture was taken by photographer Onigun.  I hope this is just the start to seeing some great Diablo 3 cosplay!

I remember always wanting a Nintendo Game Boy Watch Boy back when it was released in 1992.  It seemed like the perfect thing to have since I have the strange hobby of collecting Game Boys.  Well, its pretty rare to see one anymore so when I saw that one has gone up for auction, I became rather excited.  Unfortunately, it looks like it is going to go for a lot more than I want to spend.

Ebay seller ssjgoku444 is selling this old Nintendo Watch Boy which is supposedly in great condition other than a couple minor scratches on the screen.  As of the time of this writing, there is still over 3 days left to go and it is already at $255 with 76 bids.  That is already way more than I would ever pay for a watch but it is taking every bit of self control I have not to bid on this!
