Radiohead 8bit message Ok Computer remaster 8-bit Cool Stuff

Remastered ‘OK Computer’ includes a secret 8-bit message

I like Easter Eggs. I like Radiohead. I like OK Computer. Putting a hidden 8-bit message in the Remastered version of OK Computer, that, I love. In Radiohead’s recently released remaster they included a nice little message that can only be uncovered using a British 8-bit ZX Spectrum computer, or…

‘Pixels’ first trailer not as good as the posters

Ugh. Had a feeling this is what we would get. I loved the concept since I first heard about it but a concept is nothing without proper execution. Hopefully this is just a bad trailer edit and they’re holding back the funny…like all of it. I like the effects for…

Todays’ kids get schooled by Mega Man

Back in my day we didn’t have 14 buttons on our controllers…we had 2…and they were made out of wood. We didn’t have ‘save slots’ or ‘checkpoints’ – we had time and trial and error. A lot of trial and error. Another thing we had was durable controllers that could…

‘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…

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 –…

8-bit Harmonica Is Exactly How It Sounds

Try not to over analyze this one. It’s a harmonica that pumps out pixelated sounds waves. We like it and so should you. Japanese inventor Basami Sentaku has a place in the 8bitreview Hall of Fame…if we had such a thing. [soundworks]

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…
