Star Wars: Uncut

Star Wars: Uncut

I have a good feeling about this: Star Wars: Uncut gives fans a chance to retell A New Hope; the movie will be split into 472 clips, likely of varying quality but all better than Phantom Menace.

Supertendo Portable SNES

Supertendo Portable SNES

Marshall’s Supertendo is a portable SNES that looks pro-enough to have come from Nintendo itself; that’s due to a vacuum-formed case, down to the speaker holes; buy it here.
