    This is a video of Youtuber Dan Newbie performing Super Mario Bros. themes using 48 wine glasses, two pencils and a frying pan. It sounded very pretty. Kinda reminded me of visiting the Caribbean. Granted I've never been, but in my mind that is what it would sound like. And... / Continue →

    Two video game medley posts in a row -- things are getting pretty wild in here! I'm joking, I'm so sick and medicated I couldn't get a boner if it was the only thing I had to do to win a lotto jackpot. This is a video of two first-named Joe Jeremiah playing a 9-minute set of ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the recent GamesCon in Germany, which had a custom Super Mario Bros. level that people could play as a time trial. After 974 people played, they compiled everybody's run into one video. This is that video. Some people seemed to breeze through, while othe... / Continue →

    This is a $12 ThinkGeek coffee mug with a heart on it that turns red when there's hot liquid inside and black when there's not. No word what color it turns if filled with unicorn tears, but my guess is a rainbow. And speaking of unicorn tears... *stirring cat knuckles, drago... / Continue →

    April Fools': the day you remember just how lame all your friends are. I'm kind of glad April Fools' fell on a weekend this year because I didn't get duped into posting anything that was fake not knowing it. But is that gonna stop the exact same thing from happening today? A... / Continue →

    This is Tallgrass Brewing Company's 8-Bit Pale Ale. What's it have to do with video games besides the name and can design? ZERO. How many am I going to drink? Millions. Just like those classic video games we all grew up with, 8-Bit Pale Ale is spectacularly simple at first... / Continue →

    I need one for every day of the week! Just kidding, I'll wear the same one every day because I'm nasty. This is an 8-bit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle sweater available for pre-order (shipping in June) from Entertainment Earth. Plus it's only $40! I didn't know you could even... / Continue →

    This is an 8-bit version of that girl's annoying 'Friday' song. I say "that girl's" because I can't bring myself to say her name without projectile vomiting. Rebecca BLU-BLU-BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!!! See? Granola bars hurt on the way back up. Admittedly, this 8-bit version is k... / Continue →

    Two researchers are developing an algorithm designed specifically to 'de-pixelize' 8-bit (and 16-bit) video game graphics in real-time into smoother, more flowing ones. This. changes. everything. No, no it doesn't -- but it does change the amount of time I'll spend playing ... / Continue →

    These are 8-bit pantyhose. Despite breaking out my magnifying glass (this monitor's just a bunch of colored dots!!!!!!11), I can't tell if they're real or not (I think they're black printed on white though). Oooooor they're just Photoshopped. Whichever the case, Mario just p... / Continue →

    This is a video made by BoingBoing featuring seventy oldschool video game deaths in less than three minutes (all set to an 8-bit version of Mad World). If your first console was a Playstation, you'll probably recognize less than ten of the games. Now I know what you just real... / Continue →

    Ninja Moped/Rymdreglage is back with another LEGO stop-motion featuring a bunch of classic 8-bit video games (worthwhile previous efforts HERE and HERE). That's a scene intro and some Castlevania action in the screencap there. After watching it twice I can't even imagine how ... / Continue →

    8-Bit Interview is a minute and a half of video game characters applying for a job. It's hit-n-miss, but I'd still hire the following: Link, Peppy and Solid Snake. The rest I would not only NOT hire, but sue for sexual harassment. "Geez GW, remind me to never work for you." ... / Continue →

    This is Link in 8-bit Skittle form by deviantARTist Matt McManis. As you can see, he looks pretty delicious despite the lack of red Skittles, which I think we can all agree are the best ones unless you have absolutely zero taste or decency. I assume the sword hilt is made wit... / Continue →

    Ninja Moped (formally Rymdreglage), is the musical duo that brought us last year's '8-Bit Trip'. And now they're back with more LEGO/NES videos! No word on how many man-hours went into stop-motioning these ones, but if I had to guess I'd say way too many for either one of th... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because these beats are so fresh they'd make the front page look rotten. This is a little composition by Eclectic Method appropriately titled '8-Bit Mixtape'. It's basically a bunch of beats and audio effects from old video games strung together ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because the Geekologie front page is no longer 8-bit compatible. Did you enjoy yesterday's 8-bit NES inspired stop-motion video? No? I'll cut you. But for those of you that did, here's comes another! YOU WILL WATCH IT AND YOU WILL ENJOY IT. ... / Continue →

    Because it's a holiday weekend coming up and my brain checked out before it ever checked in, here's an awesome stop-motion video made using construction paper, LEGO blocks, some candy, vegetables, DS games, an iPhone, a couple pins, AND AN ENEMA BAG FULL OF AWESOME (sans enema ... / Continue →

    NOTE: Should-not-be-missed video is after the jump. This is a screenshot of an animated short by Patrick Jean appropriately titled 'Pixels'. It's all about oldschool games invading New York and I highly recommend you hit the jump and watch it right now whether you get fired o... / Continue →

    Youtuber Sakanakao went and 8-bit-ized Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon'. This is 'Money', but if that's not your bag you can click the Youtube link and check out the other songs. Or don't, what do I care? I'll only kill you if you don't. Hit the jump for the video and a... / Continue →
