Infographic: The Nebula of NES Games

I enjoy infographics just as much as the next person. I enjoy them even more when they involve a personal pastime. Cue – The Nebula of NES Games. It’s exactly as it sounds – a galactic nebula of over 700 NES games broken out by genre and year. A must have for the visually geeky […]

Blade Runner In All Its 8-bit Glory

I’m on a roll today. I always enjoy these 8-bit remakes as you can probably tell by my last 3 posts. This time CineFix has coated Blade Runner with a nice 8-bit shine. I must say this 8-bit version is making me want to bust out the directors cut. But I also can’t remember if […]

‘Anchorman’ Ron Burgundy & Co. Get an 8-bit Remake

This is pretty classy. CineFix took it upon themselves to do a 3 min 8-bit version of the ‘classic’ film ‘Anchorman’ – as seen above. I’m not going to abuse this post with a bunch of Ron Burgundy quotes – retrofitted with 8-bit humor. I’m just going to let you watch the video and enjoy. […]

Daft Punk’s Latest Album Gets an 8-bit Makeover

I’m so behind on this stuff. This has been around for a while now but it’s too far up our 8-bit alley to ignore. Musician Joe Jeremiah has put together an impressive (well certainly in our minds) 8-bit version of Daft Punk’s latest album¬†Random Access Memories. The video above will give you a taste of […]

Kick Ass as an 8-bit Edgar Allen Poe in EDGAR

EDGAR, the great Victorian adventure game, puts you in control of an 8-bit Edgar Allen Poe ¬†hunting down Jack the Ripper in an effort to save your wife from a fate worse than death! The adventure platformer/lootfest, as developer Wrought Iron Games describes it, is set in a side-scrolling alternate Victorian London. The above video […]

Looper Goes 8bit

I must say 2012 has been (and continues to be) quite a year for movie fans and after the massive summer blitz…the fall isn’t looking to shabby. First we have the new Dredd (I know, I know) in a week or so then a week later we have this nice time travelling gem Looper via […]

Mario Comes Alive Via Post-It Notes

This never gets old. Post It note art and stop motion animation will always be fun. Of course this has a little extra 8bit lovin’ as the Mario landscape morphs into a short Pac-Man board. All in all it’s a great quick video that lands right in our 8bit wheel house. Check out Final Cut […]

It’s Gonna Be an 8bit Summer on 3DS

Nintendo is making this summer that much sweeter by releasing 8 classics to the 3DS eShop in the month of July. I don’t own a 3DS and I already beat most of these games the first time around, actually that’s a lie I beat one of these games, but nothing wrong with re-visiting a few […]

Legend of Zelda Nursery is Legendary

Cole Bradburn is starting off father hood on the right foot. Bradburn spent about 150 hours creating this Legend of Zelda nursery masterpiece for his son-to-be. It might be a bit more impressive than the Yoshi themed nursery he did for a friend. All in all – we need more dad’s like Bradburn. Awesome stuff. […]

Learn the VIM Ropes via VIM Adventures

VIM is a very basic text editor for Windows / MAC / Linux that every developer knows about but only the hardcore use as their primary text editor. It’s all command line – no GUI here. Like I said it’s not for the faint of heart or those that love auto complete. I’ve used VIM […]
