Remastered ‘OK Computer’ includes a secret 8-bit message

I like Easter Eggs. I like Radiohead. I like OK Computer. Putting a hidden 8-bit message in the Remastered version of OK Computer, that, I love. In Radiohead’s recently released remaster they included a nice little message that can only be uncovered using a British 8-bit ZX Spectrum computer, or…

NES titles painted over 8-bit Cool Stuff
