Dioramas of old games!

DeviantArt user Mark Green, or also know as mbgreen78 on the site, has been making some awesome paper renditions of old video game stills. From Mario to Tetris to Castlevania, there is a little bit of everything for you to appreciate. Have a look and enjoy!




Please visit his gallery, there’s much more than this to see!



The NES in a Station Wagon

While popular auto manufacturer, Oldsmobile, is no longer innovating with cars, they were however willing to experiment with video technology in cars. Having a TV set in minivans is and was somewhat popular in many models, but in 1990 they weren’t as prevalent.

Oldsmobile planned to have a Nintendo Entertainment System in the Expression station wagon, installed in the back door of the car.

If this car ever made it out of the concept phase, it would’ve been way ahead of its time.

Locked out: Super Mario RPG

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is a great game but, the PAL territories never got to play it. And apparently, it isn’t easy to mod for a PAL system. It doesn’t look like you could use any of the good old fashioned tricks to get it to play. Importing a North American or Japan console is one way to do it, or … you could take apart the cartridge itself and do some rewiring.

www.mmmonkey.co.uk has the solution if everything you’ve tried has failed.


However, if this is too much trouble or too risky, SMRPG was released to the Virtual Console.

“Portable” SNES mods

I never imagined taking a Super Nintendo on the road with me, which is why I had a Game Boy. The thought of bringing cartridges that can’t fit in your pocket on the road never seemed practical, not to mention the probability of terrible battery life. When I look back at the Sega Nomad, I see why Nintendo didn’t do the same with their home consoles. However this has not stopped people from attempting to make mobile renditions of the classic console.
