8-BitVS Feature: Kirby's Epic Quilt Patch!

For those who did not know, both Jo and I are fans of GoNintendo, a blog run by Kevin Cassidy, AKA Raw Meat Cowboy. He does a great job of taking care of the Nintendo news of the day, and does so with a level of speed and panache that few can compete with.

What you may not know is that there was a recent contest in which readers who entered their names into the picking had an opportunity to be randomly selected to create a patch for an epic quilt that was being made (...Sewn? ...Quilterized?) to commemorate Nintendo's recent release of Kirby's Epic Yarn! I entered my name in the running, and like a roundhouse at a face-kicking competition, I WON!

Okami: BitNick's Game To Be Thankful For - 2010

Each year at Thanksgiving, I can't help but ruminate on what I was thankful for over the time that has elapsed since last I gorged myself on the meat of the bird.

Sometimes I'm thankful for family, for a warm place to sleep, or for great friends and fun. Sometimes I'm glad I have the help I do, and others, I'm glad I was able to help someone else.

Although I am thankful for a great many of those things this year, I want to talk today about a game I am thankful for: Okami.

Welcome To The 8-Bit Show!

Welcome to The 8-Bit Variety Show, a site where you can come to get your daily dose of Super Mushroom, Invincibility Star, Spread Gun, Heart Container, E-Tank, or whatever other power-up fits your allegory!

Here you will find (hopefully) interesting articles and (assumedly) fascinating features! There are comics, videos, pictures, humor, debate, and arguments about which video game character would win in a fight!

Like this, but without all the cheap, classless Photoshop!
We hope you'll find a home with us at The 8-Bit Variety Show, so we'll have something more than the video game sprites to keep us company here! (So lonely...)

-BitNick and Jo
