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:

The collection pics do not belong to me.

Nike Air Classic BW – Nintendo!!!

Look at this beauty (I just bought it). Nike released a nice pair of Nike Air sneakers with the colors of the original NES and it looks smoking!
Notice the details of the digital pad in the dark grey area and also the ‘start’ and ‘select’ on the sides of the shoe at the ankle.
For those interested I bought mine on www.pickyourshoes.com
