Get 8bits on your feet with Vans Nintendo themed sneakers

Vans have been known to do themed sneakers from Star Wars to Disney to the Beatles. Now, it’s Nintendo and the 8bit world. I’m filing this under 8bit Cool Stuff and Crap because it’s a split for me. I, personally, wouldn’t be caught dead in these but that’s me. I also have…

Atari pushing ‘Missile Command’ & ‘Centipede’ movies

File under things I don’t need in my life – a ‘Missile Command’ & ‘Centipede’ movie. While Hollywood struggles for original content and focused more than ever on the super hero (which I have no issues with unless they’re terrible) the video game genre has always been ripe for the…

The only thing that did was I always thought these 8-bit Princesses needed tighter security. [via: gameinformer source:…

Super Mario Bros. Parkour…cause why not?

Everybody enjoys a good old Parkour video. Especially one that is Mario Bros. themed. Dark  Pixels is the maker of this suburban part II…if you feel lost check out part I. [via: Gameinformer | source: Dark Pixels]

Mario and Mercedes hand in hand…again

It’s one of those team-ups that I get…but don’t. This isn’t the first time Mario and Mercedes have paired up for an ad campaign, which led to a weird/creepy real-world Mario. This time you can unlock a “costume” that turns Mario into a Mercedes GLA. You can unlock this add-on…

[Rant] I don’t think I want a Mega Man movie

This news has been bouncing around for awhile. But sounds like 20th Century Fox wants to make it a reality. The idea of a Mega Man movie at first split second makes me happy. It combines the two things I love – an old school gaming character I grew up…
