A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.

It seems like these days everyone is using the same old blog template or the same tired Wordpress theme (although I've seen some pretty amazing Tumblr themes). Regardless, I'm a sucker for blogs that don't actually look like your average blog and stray from the formula. The end result is what some are calling a 'blogazine'. Enjoy.

After seeing some of these photos (particularly the slide plus stairs combination) I am suddenly realizing that my current set of stairs is in desperate need of a makeover. I just need to figure out where I can fit the slide.

Joystiq gets some hands-on time with Metroid: Other M.Joystiq gets some hands-on time with Metroid: Other M.

Nintendo has announced that the sequel will be available on June 27th and is a direct sequel to Super Metroid from the Super Nintendo days. The action is blend of side-scrolling 2D and some first-person shooter 3D. I'm sold, sign me up. More screenshots available on Joystiq.

This is great news for Mac users if this turns out to be true. It's a little annoying to switch over to my Windows partition just to enjoy these games. There are also rumors that we may see Telltale on the iPad as well.

No house is truly complete unless you own a LEGO sofa. Although for all intensive purposes that couch can't be very comfortable to actually sit in - probably quite functional though. Painful, but functional.

This information comes direct from director and game designer Tetsuya Nomura. Sorry fans, at least you'll always have Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberrus, and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Oh, and don't forget the numerous action figures as well.

Six unique ways to charge your batteries that you may not have previously known about.Six unique ways to charge your batteries that you may not have previously known about.

An interesting collection of battery charging options that range from dancing your way to a charge, pedaling your way to a charge and even peeing your way to a charge (which is apparently quite environmentally sound). You could also just ignore all of those options and go wireless (awesome).

Turns out that these videos didn't really make a whole lot of difference on a child's intellect by any means. Who would have guessed? Every household is eligible for a $15.99 refund for up to four DVDs.

The coolest NES controller flash drive you'll see today.The coolest NES controller flash drive you'll see today.

Why is this the coolest flash drive you'll see today you ask? Because it requires the Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start) to unlock it. Yes, I'll take six please.
