The 8bits Of Christmas

The other day I was talking about a new Christmas album out called “8bit Christmas” and today I happen to stumble upon another great resource for holiday tunes done right called “The 8bits of Christmas” by 8bitpeoples.

This very special holiday release from 8bitpeoples features an allstar cross-platform lineup that is sure to make yours a truly chippy christmas indeed. Brought together from all corners of the globe, these 8 amazing tunes were composed by 8 dedicated chiptune maniacs on 8 different videogame consoles and homecomputers! Featuring the sounds of Yerzmyey on the Spectrum, Nullsleep on the NES, Vim on the VIC20, Paul Slocum on the Atari 2600, Bit Shifter on the GameBoy, Goto80 on the C64, Dma-Sc on the Atari ST, and Hally on the X68000, there is only one way to celebrate the holidays right this year, and this is it.

Two of my favorite things are all things 8-bit and UFC so when I saw this little video it was pure win!

You take Georges St-Pierre vs. Jay Hieron and put it to Mike Tyson’s Punch Out and you have something good to watch.  Love all the sounds…is there a way we could get all fights rebroadcast like this?  Enjoy!

Hot Streaming 8-bit Goodness

8bit

I recently discovered kohina which streams 8/16 bit music straight from consoles like the commodore 64 and atari 2600.  Now if you are a geek like me this is some awesome news as this has become my background music when I am at work and I am gonna get my fm transmitter out and see if I can stream from my phone to my car stereo which would be hellakool!

Kohina is a free “just for fun” web stream, streaming the classic 8/16 bit computer, arcade, and console music of our misspent youth, as well as the latest scene music from the platforms that remain active.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
