Dead By Daylight celebrates its 4th anniversary with a Silent Hill crossover

John Madden demanded perfection to allow EA to put his name on their game
The Madden NFL series of American football games is one of the longest-running and most well-known series in gaming.
It was originally conceived by Trip Hawkins in 1984, but the first game wasn’t released until 1988 because John Madden refused to put his name to anything but an uncompromisingly realistic simulation.
The first games didn’t feature player names or teams because EA did not have the license to use them. That changed in 1993, when EA negotiated a license to use real player and team names in the game. Thus, Madden NFL was born.
There has been a new Madden game every year since 1990, and John Madden even provided the commentary up until Madden NFL 09. Now the game only bears his name, and has no other connection to the legendary coach.
NES Switch Dock
This Reddit user built a NES dock for the Nintendo Switch
You have never seen a Switch dock like this before: Reddit user IMOKRUOK used an actual NES to build it! IMOKRUOK’s Switch dock features a top-loading system and a working power button that routes the video signal.
The dock was built from an original NES chassis using a laser cutter, and IMOKRUOK has included a photo album documenting the whole process if you’d like to follow in his footsteps.
- The components inside the Switch dock are remarkably small, so they can fit into a wide variety of enclosures
- There are plenty of enclosures for sale online that makes your Switch dock smaller
How hard can it be? Well, judging by the amount of effort IMOKRUOK put in, it’s not entirely trivial: Building the spring backloaded panel required a lot of preparation, and assembling the enclosure is a challenge in itself. Definitely looks like a fun way to get into product design and manufacturing, though!
