NES Flash Drive Works, but is Completely Inefficient

This is one of those mods that is cool in that ‘oh-that’s-neat’ kinda way but is completely useless. I still don’t understand why people mod old Nintendos to do pointless things – I’m still on the bandwagon of just make them work consistently. Then I’ll be impressed. But if you’re so inclined to do this […]

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]

The Great Gatsby for NES

Not much to say. You either read it and know it or have no idea what this is. Either way it’s a pretty fun side scrolling 8bit version of the epic story that will ruin your day. Check out this flash based browser game over at Great Gatsby Game.  Although you might be better off […]

RetroN 3 Gaming System = 3 Classic Systems in One

Well isn’t this fancy. If a Sega Genesis, a Nintendo and a Super Nintendo had a crazy sex orgy party – the RetroN 3 Gaming System would be the bastard child of said love fest. This actual hybrid system can play all the classic cartridge based titles in one machine. The system comes with it’s […]

NoiseES, an iPhone App We Can Definitely Get Behind

Just in case you can’t get enough NES chiptunes – now you can take them on the go with the NoiseES (aka NES see what they did there?) iPhone and iPod Touch app. This sweet little app was developed by Shaun Inman a designer/developer from the Chattanooga, TN area. And we approve. So did iTunes […]

8bit Wet Dream: Full Sized, Fully Functional NES Coffee Table

Oh my. This is quite the ‘do-it-yourself’ project and probably not for the faint of heart, or those that lack a basement and a jigsaw. Not to say this is the first but it’s completely functional and looks awesome. You’d think they’d hook it up to a equally scaled TV. Doesn’t matter – just watch […]

This NES Guitar Mod Sounds Like Sh**, Go Figure

File this under useless but cool. GetLoFi.com hacked together a perfectly working guitar with an NES to create this working guitar that sounds like its playing through a speaker that was knifed to death. To each his own.  This one of a kind, no really there is only one right now, is being sold in […]

Another Pointless NES Mod; Again, I ask Why?

Saw this over at kotaku today as I’m sure you did too, you Russian bot. Creative? I guess. Some level of craftsmanship? Sure. But just because I can solder the cats ass shut doesn’t make it right. Again we are faced with a…de-facing of classic nostalgia – for what? A wireless router? What’s appealing about […]

Make that Old NES into a DVD Player; I ask Why?

I guess the hands on creativity and workmanship is noteworthy, but in the long run this is more of cock-tease. Let me explain briefly. A friend comes over, you have your sweet NES/DVD player out on display. Friends’ first thought: “Dude, awesome, you have a NES?!” Your reply: “Not really…check…this…out…” Friend: Are you f**king kidding […]

Chrome is the New NES

Google just can’t stop worming its way into my rotting heart. Ben Firshman has ported a NES emulator called vNES into JavaScript, Despite the misleading title JSNES, this is a near perfect product when you run it using Google’s new web browser, Chrome. 8bit shout outs go Stan Schroeder at Mashable for this nugget of information. I personally haven’t played […]
