Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

The Cover Project + Universal Game Cases = OCD Geek Heaven!

I just found my new compulsive hobby!
I’m a bit of a freak and I hate to have games without boxes, manuals or covers. In fact I won’t buy an old game without these. That said even with the complete package you have to admit that the NES sleeves kinda suck, the SNES and GBA cardboard is a bit bland and so on and so forth…

In comes the Universal Game Case which, as the name applies, is a universal case for Genesis, NES, SNES… about the size of an old VHS… ($42 for 100 on this site).

But it gets even better is when you add The Cover Project to the mix which basically makes custom covers based on original NES, SNES and everything in between games made to fit Universal Game Cases.

And the result of that is this greatness:

Also you can do the same thing for you GBA collection by grabbing DS cases off of the Nintendo website ($7 for 10) which ends up looking like this:

Holy @%#&! Frostmourne Replica!

logoI recently came up on this gorgeous, amazing replica made by Epic Weapons. The infamous cursed sword (no not Stormbringer) which corrupted the good Arthas and made him “succeed” his father and betray all humans….and more.

The gorgeous piece is officially licensed by Blizzard and comes at a nice 47″ and 16lbs. The blade is made of stainless steel (sadly it doesn’t have a blueish hue around it) and the grip is wrapped in leather.
Of course such quality comes at a price, namely $379.00 through Weapon Masters.

Right on time for Christmas right?
