Aug 12 2010Gaming With God: The Church Of Nintendo


This is the Church of Nintendo. Except not really because it's the Church of St. George in Lalibela, Ethiopia. The D-pad portion of the church and select button were actually carved out of solid rock. Sadly, the start and A and B buttons (trees) were all Photoshopped in. Still, cute. Granted not as cute as if it were entirely real, but neither is this stuffed iguana I'm pretending is a dinosaur for the day. Oh yeah, that's the stuff. Okay, this is important: right before I climax I want you to yell 'The Land Before Time'. NOW -- YELL IT NOW!

Photoshopped? WTH? I mean if they're going to 'shop in details to make it "look like" the Nin-Controller, why not 'shop it into the shape of a freaking Dinosaur Wiener? Or a "just discovered" UFO? Noah's Ark anyone? How about snow angels by Sasquatch? I call BS!
