‘Too Many Cooks’ Gets 8-bit Remake

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. YouTube user Rush Coil has decided to make the already catchy Too Many Cooks theme song even more catchy by giving it an 8-bit spin. I’m enjoying these off the wall weird shorts that Adult Swim is creating – if you haven’t seen the follow up […]

Mario and the One Foot Sliding Trick

Kickoff those Sunday shoes…cause Mario is about to get Footloose. Originally I was going to put this under the [Classic Cheats] but it really isn’t. It’s just Mario being Mario…on one foot! Cool little trick in the classic Super Mario Bros. title –  to do this just hold B and jump immediately after starting a level […]

Internet Arcade is About To Ruin Your Productivity

This is both awesome and terrible – and only terrible because I’ve already lost hours to it. The Internet Arcade, a project by the Internet Archive – a non-profit that is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form, and JSMESS, is building a collection of browser based arcade games. Currently […]

[Classic Cheats] Super Mario Bros. – Extra Life Edition

Doubling down on this edition of classic cheats with not one, but two ways of earning those extra lives we all love so dearly. Of course there is the infinite life trick – but that’ll be covered separately since it deserves the attention. These are a bit more simple in execution. First up is the […]

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 […]
