Weezer in 8-Bit

iPhone is full of video game chiptunes as ring tones. Weezer covers in 8-Bit rock too.

Via BoingBoing

Do you remember that dream you had, where the sound chips from the beloved games consoles of your youth all got together and formed a Weezer tribute band? Yeah? No? OK. That dream is about to come true whether you had it or not.

The songs on this compilation have mostly been created using original videogame hardware running home-brew software, and vary radically in style, from minimal 'one man and his Game Boy' compositions to 8-bit inspired full band performances. Pterodactyl Squad proudly presents the music of Weezer as you have never heard it before.

Before there was Daigo

There was Tomo Ohira. Fascinating thread on SRK about the greatest old school SFII player ever.

EVO 2K9

I wish I went to Vegas to play and watch. Instead I stayed up till 3am watching the 5v5 matches on a choppy stream. My favorite match so far: Sabre vs Valle - the Sakura mind games are insane. I'll definitely be learning to use her next.
