8-Bit Ripley Looks Totally Hot In Lost 'Aliens' Game

If you owned the classic Nintendo in the 80s and love 'Aliens,' your jaw will drop at this game project that got lost in space. There's a lot of talk now about the new Alien-ish movie. However, if you owned the classic Nintendo in the 80s and love Aliens, your jaw will drop at this game project that got lost in space. In 1987, Japanese game publisher Square, who later created the RPG series Final Fantasy, which we're sure has inspired more than one chocobo furry sex orgy at Dragon*Con, got the license to make an Aliens game. Unfortunately, the game was never released on the NES, only on the Japanese Famicom Disk System. The recently rediscovered game is documented in the video above from 1up. It shows us what we've all been missing. The biggest thing, in my opinion, is the super-sexy Sigourney Weaver sprite. She has ducked and float-leaped into my heart. If the 8-bit version of Ripley came into my bedroom wearing a pink jump suit and big boots, brandishing a laser gun, I wouldn't turn her down. Maybe that's partly because of my fear of laser guns, but still. 5-year-old me would have declared 8-bit Ripley his girlfriend, and once again, nobody would talk to me at recess. (1up)

Here's The Trailer For That Nintendo Power Glove Documentary You Didn't Know Your Life Was Missing

In a meta twist, the documentary is ineffective and frustrating, causing viewers to draw parallels to its subject matter. Someone put together a documentary about the rise and quick fall of the Nintendo Power Glove, a device that prepared a whole generation for the requisite excitement, hope, then disappointment that life doles out in heapin' spoonfuls. I guess the title Nostalgia!: The Movie was taken or something. Anyway, here's the trailer for The Power of Glove, the documentary of the Power Glove.


We Now Get 'Se7en' Remade As A Fake 8-Bit Video Game. Hurray!

"8-Bit Kevin Spacey" is the name of my noise rock band. We're playing a show next week. You should totally come. I don't know what's so funny about seeing complex films juxtaposed against the simplistic plots and graphics of 8-bit films. Wait. Yes I do. It's what I just said. That's why they're funny. The guys behind 8-Bit Cinema have done it again, this time by taking the dark world of David Fincher's Se7en and giving it the NES treatment. Though, to be fair, this looks a little more like SNES 16-bit graphics, but I'm not here to upset the apple cart. Just watch the video. It's very funny to watch two noir detectives investigate heinous crimes in such a ridiculous context. I wish this was a real game.

See New 'Cowboys & Aliens' Super Bowl Ad Without Having To Watch Super Bowl

I just saved you, like, 7 hours. One of the main issues I have with the Super Bowl is the lack of cowboys, aliens, laser guns, and Harrison Ford. So I had mixed emotions about the prospect of a new Cowboys & Aliens Super Bowl spot - on the one hand, yeah, it probably has all those things. On the other hand, I'd have to sit through untold hours of lame beer ads, awful musical performances from senior citizens, and a few minutes of football in order to see it. Imagine my relief when I saw the ad appearing on the internet! And in the spirit of friendship, I now present the ad to you as well. Think about it - I just saved you, like, 7 hours. What are you going to do with it? I'm gonna watch the Super Bowl! (via SlashFilm)
