Rather than just another black box, 8bitdo’s Bluetooth speaker takes its inspiration from the classic Nintendo Entertainment System’s game controller, with a giant D-Pad for power, play and volume, and red speakers that look like A/B buttons. Measures about 3″ on each side.
Composer Giovanni Rotondo always wondered what it might sound like if 21st century video game music was made on 20th century hardware, so he’s making an album of tracks from games like Angry Birds, Destiny, and Portal as chiptunes.
CineFix envisions what David Fincher’s dark and disturbing thriller Se7en might have been like if it were a Super Nintendo point-and-click adventure game. We would totally play this. Though in our version, the box would contain a 1up mushroom.
If The Hunger Games were The Hunger Video Games, we hope it would look and play like this. We only wish that it had a train level with a drunk Woody Harrelson and a TV studio with Stanley Tucci in a powdered wig.
Ok, so the graphics on our 8-bit systems were never this good, but we’ll forgive the guys at CineFix their slight misnomer since their pixelated RPG remake of Anchorman is spot on. You stay classy, Nintendo. (Thanks PhilRoy!)
