Old skool and new school gaming...

As a gamer geek who fondly remembers the era of 2 bit gaming, (I'm SNES bias) I always find myself smiling fondly at any retro gaming cake.

The 2600 Atari, is a console I never personally owned, yet it's classic design sillouette will be recognizable to all old skool gaming fans everywhere.

The miscellaneous blog about:blank has a very well rendered example of this classic console in cake form:


Unfortunately I don't know anything about the creation of this cake, other than everything in the picture (except the wooden base board) is edible. I wonder if the wooden paneling is icing or something else - chocolate perhaps?


And now we go from old skool to current console technology. Behold an impressively iced Halo 3 cake.

Before GTA3 (Grand Theft Auto) was released for the XBOX 360, Halo 3 was the biggest and fasting selling game for the console .., evah. In fact, Wikipedia states:

Halo 3 grossed US$300 million in its first week. More than one million people played Halo 3 on Xbox Live in the first twenty hours. As of January 3, 2008, Halo 3 has sold 8.1 million copies and was the best-selling video game of 2007 in the U.S.

Some of the staff over at the GameGuru blog were lucky enough to be at Microsoft HQ for the games launch. In true geek style, they decided to make a geekcake to celebrate.


That's all for this post. Have a good weekend and see you Monday.
