That looks amazing! I would put some LEDs behind it and have it as a floating wall hanging with ambient lighting. :wub:

Would look perfect in my soon to be Gamecube-tastic games room! :toot:

Put a little speaker behind it and hook it up to the light switch so whenever you turn the lights on it plays the GC boot up sound.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Oh my that's lovely, wonderful work Gecko :toot: And double Yes on it playing startup jingle w/light switch!

Amusingly, the GC intro sequence went into meme territory a while back, the kind of meme I actually don't mind as folks get creative with the gags. My personal favourite:



(try and avoid seeing title so as to not ruin punchline)

I could probably do all that with arduino etc. but unless I reduce it down afterward it's gonna cost like £40 :dread:

I might put some LED strip behind it.. hadn't thought of doing on standoffs like that. Should be able to splice into 6 segments, solder leads beteen and hook up to an inverter somewhere.

Although it's translucent so the diffusion wouldn't be great (you'd get heatspots).

May as well just make a full lightbox. If I had a bandsaw that would be a lot easier but I could mill a small one.

I have an LED wall light (from IKEA) that basically looks like a lightbox, could be tempted to stick something like that GC logo on it.

I'd do it very reasonably on an acrylic like that, the trick will be finding a good transparent contact adhesive or tape.

kerr, dude, it seems that you pick up quite a lot of retro games... which is cool, and we'd love to invite you to consider popping a pic or two in the Retro Club Weekender thread if you wanted to :-).

EG2 is superb, definitely one of my favourite PSP games.

Such an overlooked system (in Europe and the US at least).

Recently got a ps3 so picked up a few cheap PS3 games that looked alright when I saw them yesterday. Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 for two quid each. Also got Metal Gear Solid 4 for that much not too long ago. Probably ones for the backlog since I want to play earlier entries first but I might play Heavy Rain soon-ish.

The kind of content found in the pages of Official Nintendo Magazine back in 2005.

I think I had that issue. 12 year old me loved that NOM era and for quite a while afterwards I'd talk about how that old magazine was better, but then again I'd read any Nintendo publication back then and grew an attachment to it through regular reading. (Looking back - not just at this page but others I've seen - it's not as great as I remembered lol)

I still think there's a degree of maturity in the writing mixed with zaniness that makes NGC the ultimate magazine, I have it all in my living room.
