‘Space Invaders’ with real lasers; what could go wrong?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing could go wrong. The video breaks down tools used and how it works – it’s even playable via webcam. [via Engadget]

Interstellar as a text based adventure game

This might fall a bit lower than 8-bit but it’s still pretty great. Interstellar was a fun sci-fi flick, even with a ridiculous ending, and it’s even fun as a text based game. Check it out: and try to not get too sucked in. [via /film]

Netflix Hack Day gets creative with an NES cartridge

I still think the best NES hack is to just make it work properly with no crazy bells and whistles. But hey, what do I know. Netflix had a Hack Day this year – which allows teams of engineers to take a breather from building algorithms that recommend me stuff I don’t want to watch […]

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 […]
