8-Bit Rick and Morty

There was a time where pretty much every movie or TV show you could think of was getting the 8-bit treatment. You can see a handful of them right here. But they don’t seem to pop up quite as often as they used to these days.

One that has been released this week is a re-creation of the Rick and Morty intro. It’s short, but still fun to watch if you’re a fan of the animated show. It also makes me want a Rick and Morty side-scroller game, which is usually the case after watching videos like this.

The Great Gatsby: Nintendo Entertainment System Edition!

The Great Gatsby: NES Game

What’s that? You want to play an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System version of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s immortal classic, The Great Gatsby? No problem, I can make that happen!

If you simply can’t wait for Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming film adaptation (which opens May 10th), you can whet your whistle for Roaring Twenties mischef with this bad-ass retro game adaptation.

Play as Gatsby’s neighbor Nick Carraway and battle your way past butlers, flappers, and gangsters at one of Gatsby’s bacchanalian parties. In classic NES platformer fashion, collect coins and throw your hat (which acts as a boomerang) to clear a path through Gatsby’s grounds. But beware, if you die, you’re told, “Game Over, Old Sport!”

Listen Now: Music From ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World’ Video Game

Bryan Lee O’Malley, the creator of the Scott Pilgrim comic book series, posted a track today from the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. The World video game.

The track is entitled “Another Winter” aka
“World 1-1 of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” Visit O’Malley’s site radiomaru.com to hear the song, you will not be disappointed.

I have to say, it is ridiculous. It’s all done in 8-bit tones, and if I played a game as a kid on my NES with a song like this, I would have lost my mind. The track is done by chiptune punk band Anamanaguchi, who according to their website, “make loud, fast music with a hacked NES from 1985.”

Play Now! ‘Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ The 8-Bit Choose Your Own Adventure Game!

This, my friends, may just be the most brilliant thing that anyone in the history of the universe has ever created. Okay, so that may be a tad hyperbole. Still, this is pretty fantastic and you all must check it out immediately. Basically, someone on YouTube called The Station posted a new Choose Your Own Adventure-style game based on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Better yet, the game plays out with a good old Nintendo 8-Bit presentation.

8-Bit has been pretty popular lately with things like Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog getting their own old school remakes. All are a lot of fun, but the interactive element here probably makes this one the best we’ve seen so far. That and the fact that it makes fun of a Twilight movie, of course. That will always win you some major cupcake points…with me, anyway.

Be sure to click on over to the other side to begin your very own adventure in the realms of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse!

Watch Now: 8-Bit Dr. Horrible Act 1

8-Bit Dr. Horrible's Sing-along GameThere comes a point when a revered piece of work is forever legitimized in its era of pop culture by an extreme act by a very dedicated fan or group of fans.

If winning an Emmy for the best “Outstanding Special Class – Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs” [NOTE: I did not make up that category] didn’t legitimize Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog, then the 8-Bit Dr. Horrible version certainly does.

The video looks like it was ripped from a classic Nintendo game in the ’80s and I’m probably not the only one who wishes this game actually did exist so I could play it immediately.

The video has already been mentioned on Twitter by several members of the cast and crew including Neil Patrick Harris (Dr. horrible), Felicia Day (Penny), Jed Whedon, and Nathan Fillion, according to the video’s creator Doctor Octoroc.

He’s pretty candid about the time frame for completing Acts 2 and 3, but does offer plenty of goodies on his personal site like an HD version of the video and a link to download the soundtrack.

Check out the standard quality video of Act 1 embedded below.

Listen To Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ 8-Bit Style

8-Bit Dark Side of the Moon

You remember the days: you grabbed your favorite Nintendo video game cartridge, blew vigorously into your console and the game itself, and pushed the plastic treaure in as far as it would go and then down with a subtle click.

On bad days, your system light would blink or stare blankly back at you, requiring more professional troubleshoot-blowing, but on good days, a moment or two would pass before the beautifully melodic tones of a synthetic 8-bit musical soundtrack would ring out to our eager ears. This is what being happy was all about in the ’80s. Nothing was better, and nothing would ever be better.

We were of course young and stupid back then, and many much better things have come along as we’ve grown old. Even still, the faintest hum of a beepy 8-bit video game’s music can still ignite explosions of nostalgia in our heads, and with today’s delightful technologies, it’s possible for anyone to turn anything into 8-bit musical heaven!

One such person named Brad Smith decided not to stop at one basic tune, but to take one of the most popular albums of all time, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, and make it 100% 8-bit. It’s called MOON8. The brilliant tunes are in six different parts that can all be found at YouTube, but you can put down your Triforce and hop a couple turtles and mushrooms over to the other side to hear a few favorites!
