Live action Legend of Zelda teaser certainly is a tease

A fan made live action teaser of Legend of Zelda by the folks at The Zelda Project. It certainly captures the feel of the game. Ears and all. [via mashable]

Official Sidearm of 8-Bit Review

The link might be in German, but you get the idea. Blam blam blam!

This is how Skynet starts; by beating you at Atari games

AI has always been a hot topic, from books to film to the real world, but as technology advances we’re quickly stepping into a world where people are actually concerned over it’s progression. That’s a bit deep for this post but the research Google has been working on lately is just a small step into […]

‘Say hello to my little 8-bit friend!’

Scarface is one of those lasting classics that seems to always come up during episodes of Cribs. It has it’s moments but really the movie isn’t good until the last 10 minutes. CineFX did their 8-bit tribute to the classic Pacino film – which has a very Double Dragon feel to it. [via Destructoid]

Bayonetta as an 8-bit browser game

I never played Bayonetta – not my cup of tea. But I’ve heard good things and that it’s extremely difficult title to master. Not completely sure why this exists but it’s great either way. My guess is Platinum Games’ wanted to take their April Fool’s joke from 5 years ago to the next step. Check out […]

8-bit Guardians of the Galaxy short film just as fun as the real thing

CineFX always comes through when we need them. This time with 8-bit Guardians of the Galaxy. What’s more impressive is they even nailed the awesome soundtrack. Guardians was certainly the unexpected hit of 2014 and of the Marvel Universe. I would take a guess that a majority of the people who saw this film had no […]

A Chicago suburb is getting a Pac-Man themed restaurant NOM NOM NOM

This year a new restaurant, Level 257 (get it? although I thought the kill screen was at 256?), will be opening at the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL. A Pac-Man themed restaurant – we see absolutely nothing wrong with this. Most likely they’ll have cherry flavored cocktails and pretzels that everyone will try and order, but […]

Hopefully ‘Pixels’ is as good as its movie posters

So ‘Pixels’ has been around for quite awhile – if you’re a long time reader you probably caught the original short by Patrick Jean here on 8-bit along with the news that the Happy Madison crew would be handling the full feature. I feel like there’s even been a teaser trailer floating around with our key […]

Rock ‘n Roll Meets 8-bit in Torche vs Robots

We have a pretty wide range of musical tastes here in the 8-bit offices – but it just so happens one of our favorite bands, Atlanta based Torche, just released an 8-bit game to promote their new album – Restarter. The game, Torche vs Robots, models itself after the classic side scrolling shooters of the […]

Rogen and Franco play 8-bit ‘Freaks & Geeks’ video game

This would be a little nerve racking. Last year The Fine Bros, with the help of composer/animator Doctor Octoroc, created an 8-bit tribute to the, sadly, short lived comedy series ‘Freaks & Geeks’. They also had Rogen and Franco play their creation. It’s awkward – but still fun to see them relive some classic moments in 8-bit […]
