Gurk; The Power Of 8bit In the Palm Of Your Hand

I feel silly posting this now since this has been around for apparently a year. But, as people say when they’re running late for something and need a cliche excuse: better late than never. Gurk, a port from J2ME by the fellas at Larva Labs,  is an 8bit RPG for…

NEStalgia Brings 8bit and MMO Worlds Together

This might be the coolest 8bit news in awhile. NEStalgia is an original, and free to play, MORPG that combines the classic 8bit RPG feel with an online community. Pretty awesome. Check out the trailer video first then head over to the official site to download.  [joystiq]

Functional 8bit Violin, Well Sort Of

If it can be 8bitted – make it so. Well this homemade beauty was built as apart of an art experiment called an instrument a day, where artist Ranjit Bhatnager builds a new homemade instrument…um…each day. Today seems to be our lucky day as he decided to take on making…

TurboGrafx-16 Resurrected in App Form For iPhone and iPod Touch

The forgotten console. The TurboGrafx-16 SuperSystem seems to only come up in “oh remember…” type of conversations. I didn’t get much hands on time with the console in my youth so I don’t really have any attachment to it. I mean with such classics as Splatterhouse and Bomberman how could…

New Star Wars The Force Unleashed II Clip

Hey guy, welcome to the coolest 32 seconds of your day. I am shocked how great Blur Studios is doing with these trailers. This is the part of the post that I am contractually obligated to trash talk George Lucas…but I just can’t force myself to do it…I actually liked…
