The First Ever [8bit Blast]

Today we have a lot to talk about and not much time to do it, so we’re going to crank a bunch of cool links your way in one post. [8bit Blast] is a lame title for this feature, admittedly, but we don’t care. So here it goes. The good folks…

Earth Day Is For Weenies. Saving Cash Is For 8bit.

Earth Day and people trying to be “green” are stupid and annoying. Things that make the world a better place usually only get done when they’re easy and cheap. In that spirit, I’ve got a few links to guides tailored for gamers to help the environment and save you a…

Keep This Nutjob Behind Bars

The South Carolina Federal inmate pictured above, Jonathan Lee Riches, it a total fucking wacko. He also happens to love filing lawsuits and restraining orders. Lucky recipients of his attention have included but are not limited to Michael Vick, Martha Stuart, Bill Belichick, our current President, Steve Jobs and poor,…

Darth and Yoda Look Cool In SC IV, Duh.

Star Wars is so tied into everything these days that it’s no surprise that a few of the most recognized characters on the planet might pop up in a new fighting game. So much cooler than Spawn and Link, now Darth Vader (pictured above hitting on schoolgirls) and Yoda will…

The Night He Came Home!

Good afternoon folks. It looks like PS3’s Home Beta is very close to going public. Soon enough all of you lucky PS3 owners can see what the fuss was about…six months ago. Supposedly some savvy gamers have actually gained access to the beta already. I think Home is a pretty solid concept. This could turn out…

[8bit Crap] Nothing To Do With Gaming

Does this really have anything to do with playing videogames? Not really. But fuck it. Siggi Eggertsson, and Icelandic artist living in London makes some pretty cool shit that definitely has an 8bit spirit. Take a look at the portrait section and you’ll see he’s worked with some pretty well-known…
