Donkey Kong shelves put the game on the wall

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2009

Donkey Kong shelves put the game on the wallWho doesn’t love Donkey Kong? Who doesn’t want it on their wall? And let’s face it, any shelves you install are going to end up crooked as a 3 dollar bill. But when those shelves involve DK, crooked is ok. In fact, it’s mandatory to recreate the look of the game.

And this guy did it up right. He’s got all of the perfect nerd decor on them. The only thing missing is a wind-up Mario walking around swinging a hammer. You can almost hear the game sounds. We give these shelves two callused gaming thumbs up.

Awesome Lego Donkey Kong level

Awesome Lego Donkey Kong levelThis is one of the cooler Lego Donkey Kong things we’ve seen in quite some time. Sure, it doesn’t move and actually do stuff like this one, but just look at all that amazing detail.

Hammers, barrels,fire, it has it all. It’s all the more impressive because it doesn’t move. After taking it in for a bit, you feel like it could/should. Sure, Mario and the Princess are just generic Lego people, but that’s maybe it’s only flaw. Look at those ladders and beams. My inner nerd is happy now and so I share it with you.

The Donkey Kong quilt looks pretty comfy

The Donkey Kong quilt looks pretty comfyWhile you will never get to the famous Donkey Kong kill screen with this quilt, it will keep you comfy on these winter nights. Unless you choose to hang it on your wall. It’s a faithful rendition of the classic game we all know and love. It measures 64 square inches and is made from 100% cotton.

Etsy seller CarolinaPatchworks did a great job. I would say that it’s pixel perfect. And isn’t it time you changed those Star Wars bedsheets? Of course, fine geek craftsmanship like this isn’t cheap. It will cost you $450. That’s 1800 quarters, in case you were wondering.

Awesome video game belt buckles

Awesome video game belt bucklesIf you absolutely have to keep your pants up, and I recommend that you do so that you don’t get acquainted with police, these video game belt buckles are the best way to do it. Each one is handmade by artist Natalie Hutcheson and is full of famous retro video game action, such as Donkey Kong, Ms. Pac-Man and more.

They’re made with brass-toned metal, inlaid with sparkling metallic game graphics, then coated with a durable industrial epoxy finish. These are probably the coolest belt buckles I’ve seen in my entire geek life. And they’re only $18 each. Now, if someone would just create an LED Pac-Man belt that can zip around my waist chasing ghosts, my life would be complete.

Obama DS Lite
While we’re waiting with bated breath for a possible new updated Nintendo DS model that has been rumored, we thought we would take a look at some of our favorite DS mods. Like the Wii, modders love to spice up Nintendo’s boring design and put their own personal touches on the device. Some are weird, some are awesome, some will make you wonder what’s in the modder’s local water supply, but all are creative.

Lego Donkey Kong that moves

Lego Donkey Kong that movesHere’s something that makes my cold geek heart melt, skip a beat and pop out of my chest cartoon style. This Lego version of Donkey Kong actually moves people! It moves! It’s alive! Rolling barrels roll. Donkey Kong throws rolling barrels at Mario and Mario jumps. Have a look at the video below.

Pretty awesome invention. I’m not joking when I say that it’s right up there with the toaster and the waffle maker. The guy even made it play the Donkey Kong game start song. If I were rich I would create a Think tank with guys like this, throw a trillion bucks at them and see what else they could do. I would advance geekery and nerdum ahead by a good thousand years.

Micro VS System: Donkey Kong Hockey

Micro VS System: Donkey Kong Hockey
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to play hockey with Donkey Kong. It’s just a dream of mine. I’m a geek. I know he wouldn’t perform well on the ice since he’s so big, so I know I can save the Princess. I’ll finally get my chance.

The Micro VS System was released in 1984 and is one of the earliest consoles that let’s you play against another player and with DK. With the console’s two handhelds, two players can join a game by sharing the screen between them. They are pretty hard to find, but the good news is that Play-Asia.com got hold of a limited quantity of brand new factory sealed consoles. Better hurry.
