Everything weird in the World of Nintendo

Normal service is resumed after the E3 hullabaloo, and we’re kicking things off with a collection of excellent knitted items from a needle-skilled reader. Can you do this sort of stuff?

1) Knitted Kirbies

“Here’s a photo of nine knitted Kirbies I created,” writes Laura Dixon. “I’ve made Ice Kirby, Beam Kirby, Jet Kirby, Cook Kirby, Water Kirby, Sword Kirby, Cutter Kirby, Freeze Kirby and (the one you might not recognise) UFO Kirby!”

2) Game Boy on NES

These carts are made to order, costing about $130/£90 each, so a second-hand SNES and a Super Game Boy would be better value but definitely not as cool. You can play Game Boy carts on your NES! Why not?

3) Pet slime

You like Slimes? Try this little grey one, encased in a vial of slimy gel. We don’t know what use it is, but it’s definitely cool.

4) Mega Man helmet

Try as cosplayers might, nobody has ever looked particularly good in Mega Man’s distinctive headgear. Actually, maybe it would look okay as part of a romper suit for toddlers, but it’s a fashion disaster on adults. This is the knitwear that dignity forgot.

5) Koopa hell

Spare a thought for the unfortunate Koopa left bouncing eternally between two pipes. Mario couldn’t care less what happens to it, but the poor thing has a family to support and friends who wonder where he’s gone… click the image to see his fate.

    Why don't they make things like the VR Zapper?? I watched the video and had my mind instantly blown. Why doesn't the Big 3 hire people like this?!

    I would go see a full length Pixels movie.

    That ninja diorama could be incredibly inspiring to a game designer. I would be really interested in playing it.

    The rings look cool. I like the Zelda one a lot more, though.

    Pixels is the best video I have ever watched on youtube. Besides it also makes me want to play 3d dot game heroes.

    Hobbies are an excellent way to pass precious, precious time.

    The Mega Man helmet is crocheted, not knitted. It's very different!

    Not only is the Pixels short signed on for a full movie deal, but it's apparently being partially funded by Adam Sandler after he saw the video and fell in love with it.

    The Koopa hell video reminds me on how I like Luigi a bit more than Mario, especially since Luigi asks what ever happened to it and Mario gets a bit violent. Why Mario. Why'd you do it? That Koopa had a family...and kids.
  • Jacko415 - June 30, 2010 11:03 p.m.

    Pixels and Koopa Hell are the best
  • RonaldRayGun - June 30, 2010 10:43 p.m.

    Wow that diorama is awesome!
  • CH3BURASHKA - June 30, 2010 10:42 p.m.

    Apparently, 'Pixels' is being transformed into a full-length movie. WHAT.
  • Cyberninja - June 30, 2010 10:28 p.m.

    if they updated ninja gaiden it would have alot more boobs.
  • Xplosive59 - June 30, 2010 10:20 p.m.

    wow these are pretty cool, especially the koopa hell thing, it makes mario look like even more like a jerk.
