Canadian punk rock band, PUP (it’s OK, I never heard of them either), released a new track called “DVP” a few weeks ago. Shortly after, to accompany the single, the band released the song’s video which is simple in concept but also over-the-top fun. Well, at least we think so….

Leo and I have a love / hate relationship. Which is weird because we’ve never met and probably never will so it’s mostly me loving / hating him at various points in life. Maybe I’m still bitter about him stealing the Seavers Christmas gifts. Or the fact that he hangs…

Not entirely 8-bit but we don’t mind making exceptions. Below you can check out video of a PC port of Super Mario Bros. 3 by the team behind Doom. At the time of the port, back in 1990, the developers from id Software were known as IFD. They had created…

It’s one of those team-ups that I get…but don’t. This isn’t the first time Mario and Mercedes have paired up for an ad campaign, which led to a weird/creepy real-world Mario. This time you can unlock a “costume” that turns Mario into a Mercedes GLA. You can unlock this add-on…
