Sonic Forces Lets You Create Your Own Sonic Character; Excuse Me While I “SQWEEEEEEEEE”…

It’s probably not a secret that I’m a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog (here’s the damning proof, itself), so hearing that in one of the upcoming new Sonic games (other than the retro-tastic Sonic Mania, which, YES, I DID pre-order because I’m a sucker), you’d be able to create your own character to fight the forces of evil with Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic.

Bless You ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ for Gifting Us These Frightening Custom Characters…

Don’t worry, dudes and dudettes; no spoilers to Mass Effect: Andromeda here.  Anyway, the story of Mass Effect: Andromeda involves humanity journeying out to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy as part of  the “Andromeda Initiative”. The player assumes the role of either Scott or Sara Ryder, an inexperienced military recruit who joins the Initiative and wakes up in Andromeda after a 600+ year voyage. As with the other main Mass Effect games, the player can create a custom character using the features of the game’s robust creation system, which can lead to amazing or hideous character creations. This post — and the following images after the break — celebrates the latter. Enjoy the show. Continue reading Bless You ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ for Gifting Us These Frightening Custom Characters…

YouTuber Tom Scott Builds Crazy 1,000-Key Emoji Keyboard BECAUSE REASONS!!

It appears that YouTuber Tom Scott will no longer have any issues reacting to any comment or post delivered on social media with his brand, spanking new emoji keyboard. This keyboard is actually not A keyboard, but FOURTEEN (14) individual keyboards synced together with well over 1,000 keys bound to emojis. Scott further explains:

This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve built in a long while: a full-size, real-life emoji keyboard, made of 14 keyboards and over 1,000 individually placed stickers. And yet, it’s got everything from Unicode 8 — but not yet the candidates from Unicode 9. I might need another keyboard for them, next year.

I can only picture that some of you reading/watching this post/video have your jaws and eyes wide open, either from the technical aspect of such a thing existing, or that it could find a practical use. Still, amazing story and effort, man. 😉

Behold this Danganronpa/WWE Murder Mystery Mash-Up. Yes, You Read That Right…

Fan-Made Danganronpa/WWE Murder Mystery Is Better Than You'd Imagine

Your eyes do not deceive you; yes, that’s WWE star Triple H with Danganronpa character Aoi Asahina. In case you’re wondering why you’re seeing this, I present you with an absurd hour-long crime drama in which these two worlds collide brought to you from YouTube creator Alfredo Dizon. This isn’t the first time  Dizon has mashed up WWE and Danganronpa, but this one is completely voice acted — and yes, I know it’s not the same people from the games, but it still does the job.

This custom ‘Pikaboy’ Game Boy Color is…just…AWESOME!!!

One of my favorite things to do here on The PractitioNERD is share passion projects from all the other gamers and tech-tinkerers out in with crazy world, and this “Pikaboy” is a prime example of that! Even though this amazing project is pretty retro and not new, this interesting and awesome little creation from eforie came to my attention through Geek.com.  Essentially, it’s a Game Boy Color system that also features LED cheeks (a’la the Pikachu edition of the Nintendo 64 — which I gifted my little sister a couple of years ago), a rotating tail, and modified buttons. WANT.

Play ‘Symphony of the Night’…in LittleBigPlanet 3!

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the greatest games of all time, and one of my favorite games to replay every year or so.  The game took the series and a whole new direction; mostly by taking the Metroid level design formula and instituting the ‘Metriod-Vania’ game genre.  While there currently exists many ways to play the game (from buying the original print of the game, purchasing the Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles on PSP, digital distribution, etc.), this rendition of the Konami classic looks to be a blast to give a try.  All you need is a PlayStation 4 and a copy of LittleBigPlanet 3.

Turn an Old Cassette Tape into an MP3 Player

Make an MP3 Player Out of an Old Cassette

One of the things I loved the most of watching “Guardians of the Galaxy” was Star-Lord’s use of his old-school Walkman (in name only), which brought back memories of carrying around my old Sony Walkman and jamming to the Boomerang soundtrack I own on cassette.  Of course, the times of the portable cassette player have passed, first by the portable compact disc (CD) player, then the MP3 player (yes, that INCLUDES the iPod).  Now, while your basic Mp3 player isn’t nearly as popular as they used to be a decade ago, Instructables (one of my absolute FAVORITE websites on the internet) user BrittLiv submitted the MP3 player-inside-of-a-cassette project, which is VERY MUCH cool enough that it would be worth making for retail. Seriously. Continue reading Turn an Old Cassette Tape into an MP3 Player
