8bitMMO Full Launch Trailer

We actually covered this awhile back when it was still in it’s infant stages. It’s been awhile since we’ve checked in but the other day we received an official press release about a full launch. So now it’s even more ready than before. Check out the launch trailer above – and big 1.0 changes that […]

[Classic Cheats] Super Mario Bros. – Minus World

As a former QA engineer (and still one at heart) I really enjoy finding bugs in code/websites/games. Some are straightforward issues – player can’t do expected action at expected time or there is clipping etc – but sometimes you get bugs that completely defy the logic that powers it. These are the gems as they […]

Get Access to Classic Games from Infogrames, Accolade & MicroProse via ‘Retroism’

Retroism is the brain child of Tommo Inc. & Night Dive Studios which will bring to life the classics of yesteryear. This is actually old news – I’ve been behind on things lately as this was released back in Oct 2014. Better late then never I guess. Either way, games will be available via digital distribution such as […]

[Classic Cheats] Super Mario Bros. – Game Over Man, Game Over!

Classic titles didn’t have much in terms of ‘saves slots’ or ‘checkpoints’. Instead, you learned to cherish every life you had to accomplish your mission. Old school games were an exercise of trial and error and starting from the beginning if you failed beyond what was acceptable. Well, this little cheat alleviates that. Once at […]

8-bit Freerunning Takes It To a New Level

Parkour is pretty awesome. Every once in awhile I’ll find myself dragged into a YouTube parkour video watching spree. Similar to the wikipedia knowledge rabbit hole of link clicking. Now, mix parkour with a little 8-bit theme and you’ve got our full undivided attention. This guy, Jason Paul, does some cool freerunning while battling ninjas […]

[Classic Cheats] Super Mario Bros – A Fireball Shooting Mini Mario

I like to think I know all the ins and outs of Super Mario Bros. but apparently I don’t. I’m collecting these cheats (some are more like glitches but cool nonetheless) under a new section [Classic Cheats] – which will probably expand to other titles, but for now we start with Super Mario Bros.. I’ll post […]

How Does this 8-bit Art Make You Feel?

Artist Adam Lister has recreated some famous paintings, as well as other notable pop culture icons, into 8-bit works of art. Or as we like to call it 8-bitilism…it’s OK you can use that term…just remember where you got it from. Head over to Adam’s Gallery and check out the rest of his work. When […]

Game of Super Mario Thrones – An Intro Mash-Up

Well…this seems fitting. The only other thing that could really tie these two worlds together would be finding the Princess dead in a castle…at the hands of Luigi. Talk about surprise season ending. YouTube user NicksplosionFX put this together and being fans of both of these worlds – we approve. [via BI]

[Spoilers] True Detective for Our 8-Bit World

I actually haven’t watched this all the way through. Since, well, I’m probably one of the last people on the planet who, is using a friend’s HBO GO account and hasn’t finished this show. Spoilers don’t usually bother me – since the journey means much more – unless it’s something on par with Usual Suspects […]

This Nintendo is Made from Solid Aluminum

Analogue Interactive has been known to re-design the classics in interesting ways. Now they’ve gone an extra step with the classic NES and Famicom systems by machining them out of a single solid block of aluminum. Yup. Made this one out of a single block of aluminum…took me about 70 man hours. I believe it […]
