The guys from That Works show off the build process for another awesome weapon replica. Matt and Ilya turn their attention to the ornate Dagger of Death’s Flowers from Resident Evil Village. Carving that handle from a solid block of aluminum looked like a ton of work.
Videogamedunkey presents the debut single off of his fictitious album “Yo Peter, pass me the meatballs.” The prolific video game reviewer offers up a rap about his mad YouTube and gaming skillz set to the tune of The Notorious B.I.G.’s Mo Money Mo Problems, which itself is set to the tune of Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out.
Stern Pinball’s latest machine is loaded with images, sounds, and characters from The Mandalorian. Among its gimmicks is a sculpt of Grogu that wields Force powers to control the pinball. The Premium and LE add a mini-playfield, while the 750-unit LE also gets a “Beskar steel” mirrored backglass and other upgrades.
BuyStuffStore is working on something truly awesome – a TV stand that can transform from an arcade machine with a 50″ screen into a horizontal pinball table in seconds. It’s shown here with the AtGames Legends Gamer Pro. It’s not in production yet, but they are accepting a small number of participants for their beta tester program.
Italy’s Enth Creations builds these unique handmade game controllers from Iroko wood, a dense African timber. They feature authentic Sanwa arcade joysticks and buttons set into custom-cut plexiglass and 3D-printed PLA bezels. They also make all-button hitboxes for fighting games.
To add to the replay value of Capcom’s Resident Evil Village demo, MarcosRC created a mod for the PC version that replaces the game’s creepy monsters with something even more terrifying: Barney the purple dinosaur. We can almost hear the pained echoes of “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family” in the distance.
(PG-13: Language) Created as an April Fools joke back in 2011, the Clone Hero track Soulless 6 was designed to be impossibly difficult. It took 10 years, but someone has finally beaten the track with a 100% Full Combo score. Don’t blink, or you might miss CarnyJared’s fingers as they go flying across the frets of his video game guitar.
Ahoy is back with another of their great, deadpan videos about weaponry. This time, they provide a in-depth look at the fiery death-dealers known as flamethrowers, and their appearances in video games, movies, TV, and real-life combat. We had no idea flamethrower tanks were a thing.
The music from the first couple of Sonic the Hedgehog games is some of the best in the history of video games. Among our favorites is the music from the Chemical Plant Zone, which drummer gotobejake made even better by adding a live rhythm track. We also enjoyed Jake’s take on Duck Tales.
We love arcade machines. We even have a custom-built one here at Awesomer HQ. But they’re not exactly the kind of thing you’d put right in the middle of your living room. Maker Alexandre Chappel shows us how he designed and built a 2-player arcade machine that hides inside of a sleek wood cabinet that hangs on the wall.
Building upon their great single-player handheld, Evercade is back with a 4-player home game console with dual cartridge slots.

Nintendo started out making playing cards, so it makes sense that they might occasionally dip their toe back in those waters. This official deck features images inspired by the game levels in various Super Mario games. Apparently, they’re a little thin compared to regular playing cards, so they’re best as a collector’s item.
This comprehensive collection of Team Ninja’s masterful fighting games includes Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. You’ll also get most of the DLC costumes and models, as well as additional playable characters. Coming 6.10.2021 to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
After pushing his CPU and RAM to the limit with a mega-fireworks display in the physics-based sim game Planet Coaster, Let’s Game It Out decided he was going to build himself a terrifying virtual theme park, designed exclusively to torture its oblivious visitors in hilarious ways.
The objective of PowerWash Simulator is simple – grab your pressurized water cannon, and start washing away dirt and grime. This wonderfully soothing sim is a great way to decrease stress without getting water all over the place. It’s coming soon to Steam, but in the mean time, play the demo version of the game.
This open-world sandbox adventure is set in a whimsical world where strange and wonderful creatures roam the land – which just happens to be on the back of a giant beast. The game encourages players to grow and harvest plants, craft tools and shelters, and terraform the land as they nurture their Terrabeast.
The music video for the Talking Heads track Once in a Lifetime is one of the most memorable clips of the 1980s. Using Valve’s Source 2 engine, Corey Laddo managed to perfectly replicate the clip, replacing the lanky and awkward David Byrne with the mysterious G-Man from the Half-Life series. Here’s the original for comparison.
The gigantic Switch Axe from Monster Hunter would likely be impossible to wield in real life. To solve this problem, Crafty Transformer built a lightweight replica of the transforming weapon out of cardboard, complete with the ability to convert from a sword to an axe. Though we don’t recommend lighting this one on fire.
Alawar Premium’s 2D action platformer features a cool, hand-painted animation style. Players take on the role of a three-armed bounty hunter on a mission to track down the galaxy’s most elusive fugitives and fight off their henchmen in fast-paced hack-and-slash combat. Add it to your Steam wishlist.
Game studio Kong Orange and Wired Fly Animation are working on this co-op puzzle game that puts players in the roles of Karla and Kurt, two friends on the verge of expressing their love, but who lose their ability to speak. Each character and background will be hand-animated using traditional stop-motion techniques.
Have a spare game controller lying around? Its tactile buttons and joysticks are great for fidgeters. Pilpoc’s Fidget Controller Pad is a fidget toy based on the same idea, but in a pocketable size. It has eight functions to keep fingers and brains occupied, yet measures just 2.8″ x 1.4″ x 1.0″.
One of the best things about the Nintendo Switch is its ability to go from a handheld to a home console. If you prefer to play on a big screen, then Michael Pick’s mod is for you. The builder created this fully functional Switch with a TV and custom-made buttons. Best of all, he donated it to Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Smartphone racing games often require tilting the screen to steer. While it’s not a bad control method, we prefer this clever design, which places the phone in a cradle that’s been rigged up to a metal frame and steering wheel. Though if your game requires acceleration or braking, that’s another problem.
