At first, the thought of spin off Star Wars films scared me. It’s clearly Disney milking the cash cow – which makes sense – they did invest a few dollars for this. But at what end? At what point do we need every detail from the original trilogy explained in…

If you haven’t seen Civil War yet – I highly suggest you do. It’s a blast and, like Winter Soldier before it, a really good movie. I always enjoy these 8-bit (although more 16-bit at times) trailers. This one nails it again. The sound track is perfect and they manage…

Simply beautiful. But completely unnecessary. Those are the first thoughts that come to mind when describing Analogue’s 24-karat gold NES. It’s their latest of beautifully designed NES‘ and was created to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Legend of Zelda. This time around, though, it’ll cost you $5,000 and only 10…

Ever wonder why it’s called Legend of Zelda when it’s really Link who does all the legendary stuff? Well, Dorkly gives a nice explanation in the fun video below. It never actually crossed my mind. The only thing that did was I always thought these 8-bit Princesses needed tighter security. [via: gameinformer source:…

There’s been some buzz this past week about a new found secret in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! that tells you exactly when to punch to knock out the second Piston Honda and Bald Bull. I find it crazy that a game that has been around for about 30 years is still…

A few bits out of the 8-bit realm but we don’t care when it’s worthy. Japan is getting a Super Famicom themed Nintendo 3DS with classic colors and button scheme to boot. It’s launching this month for 21,600 Yen (~$190) but only in Japan and there’s no word on a…
