Yesterday, I posted a really awesome boxed lunch that was made to look like one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Well, from the same Lunchbox Awesome blog comes this fantastic Pac-Man lunch!  This delicious looking Pac-Man lunch represents everything about Pac-Man here from a ghost to the dots and even Pac-Man himself!

I’ve seen some sites refer to these lunchbox creations as a bento box but a traditional bento box consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables so I am hesitant to call this a Pac-Man bento box.  Do you think this awesome Pac-Man lunch qualifies?  Let us know in the comments!

It seems that pretty much everybody is obsessed with the weather, so it makes sense that the Mario and the other inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom like to watch the weather report as well.

Well, it seems like we now have an idea of just what the weather is like in Mario’s world.  The temperature seems pretty comfortable in the Mushroom Kingdom although I don’t think I really want anything to do with the weather on Wednesday or Friday as it seems to be out to kill you.

For those that really like this forecast, you can get it on a t-shirt from RedBubble for $24.54.

Its amazing what things you can come across when you are googling random phrases that come to mind in hopes of finding something cool to blog.  In this case, I think I googled something along the lines of “Legend of Zelda blanket” and ended up stumbling across this amazing Legend of Zelda Ocarina fleece blanket available on Etsy.  Etsy seller Stitch3d is the creator of this amazing ocarina fleece blanked and it can be yours for the amazing price of $65!  It might not be as practical as my snuggie (sleeved blankets are amazing) but it is much cooler!

Yesterday, I posted a picture of various Star Wars characters like Jabba the Hut and slave Leia replacing the traditional characters in Donkey Kong and in that same spirit, I have a picture today of more Star Wars characters taking over Pac-Man.  Stormtroopers have replaced the iconic ghosts in this version of Pac-Man and the Millennium Falcon is playing the roll of Pac-Man.  I can’t speak for anybody else, but I would give anything for this to be real!  I hope somebody with the skills to do it see this and decides to make this into reality!

A lot of people seem to think that mobile phones and tablets like the iPad are the future of mobile gaming and I think those people are idiots.  Sure, touchscreen interfaces works great for games like Angry Birds or Worms, but have you ever tried playing an FPS game like  Duke Nukem 3D on an iOS device?  The controls are so bad it is virtually unplayable which makes devices without buttons a joke when it comes to gaming IMO.

Well, if you want to show that you still support real mobile gaming while carrying around your iPad, then I have found the iPad envelope case for you!  Etsy seller MyGeekyBoyfriend is the creator of this awesome Nintendo Game Boy inspired iPad envelope case which can be yours for just $23!  I want!

I think you would be hard pressed to find a gamer who doesn’t have a special place in their heart for Donkey Kong.  It is one of those games that not only did people like me grow up on, but was great enough to inspire documentaries about people who hold the world record for the game.

Well, this Donkey Kong might not be exactly as you remember because it has been taken over by some of your favorite Star Wars characters instead.  I haven’t seen any indication that this is a real game, but I hope so because I would love to jump over the R2-D2 droids that Jabba the Hut is trying to throw at me while I try to reach slave Leia.
