If You Like 8-Bit Games, You’ll Like This…

Chances are if you’re my age, you had an NES growing up. Looking back now; it wasn’t the best system, it was totally archaic compared to what we have today, but it was fun and if your mom or dad got you an NES, you were the coolest kid on the block.  The VERY first game I had was the Duck Hunt / Super mario  “bundle” lol.  The great thing is that I never got tired of playing the same game over and over again.  Which is really good, because I didn’t get another game until a few months later.

Funny enough, NES and 8-bit games were so popular and iconic back then, that today some games (and products) are creating 8-bit look-alikes. In this case, Funko Pop.

We all know what Funko Pop! is (those little vinyl figurines), but did you know they even have some funky 8-bit characters? They’re ac...

Check Out The Vampyr Developer Diary Here – New Episode

*Edit:  2 more episodes of the Vampyr Diary are now available AND you should see them in the second set of videos below.  (the playlist).

Vampyr is a game that will be coming out sometime this year and I gotta say it, it looks pretty cool! There are tons of games out there that have zombies, which is nice, but I really love these older Vampire (Vampyr) type movies, tv shows, and games. They simply offer something that zombie games cannot.

Plus, uh, hello, it takes place in 1918 and in London! Cant get much more Vampyr than that!

The plot relates how Jonathan Reid, a doctor who has turned into a vampire, comes to terms with his undead condition as he is torn between the Hippocratic Oath and his newfound bloodthirsty nature. The player is under no obligation to kill to finish the game...

Humble Manga Bundle: Attack On Titan Universe

Attack On Titan the game is going to be released pretty soon – in February for PS4, PS3, Vita and Xbox One, as well as PC! While I imagine the Attack On Titan game is going to be super popular and well-received, the whole game is, of course, from the manga series.

The series began in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine on September 9, 2009, and has been collected into 24 tankōbon volumes as of December 2017.

Attention Sneakerheads: Nike Playstation Themed Shoes!

Nike has announced that they will be making a new pair of Nike Playstation shoes that are centered around Paul George and the PlayStation 2. Even if you don’t like Paul George, you have to appreciate the sentiment behind the shoe and the shoe itself.  Plus, these are pretty cool looking, ultra-comfortable, and they have some nice features available if you plan on wearing them.

Paul George said that he has very fond memories of asking for a PS2 from his dad for Christmas.

“I’d been dropping hints left and right because I knew that was it. That was the next big thing,” he wrote. His passion for PlayStation was rivaled by his desire to someday have his own Nike sneakers. “I’d make sketches of what I wanted my Nike shoes to look like,” he said.

The Nike Playstation shoes called the PG-2’s...

Castlevania Season 2 Coming Soon To Netflix

Back in 2017 Gamers Elite let you know that Castlevania was coming to Netflix (as well as a Witcher series!). The show, which is obviously from a game was released in 2017 and honestly? People loved it.

Castlevania Season 1:

Castlevania is an American adult animated web television series based on the 1989 video game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse by Konami. The series follows Trevor Belmont, who defends the nation of Wallachia from Dracula and his minions.

Because of how well-liked Castlevania Season 1 was and the fact that people wanted MORE (there were only 4 episodes!), they are now doing Castlevania Season 2...

Humble Winter Sale – Ends January 25th!

Humble is one of those websites that I feel not a lot of people know about. When they think about purchasing games for their PC, they automatically go to sites like Origin or Steam, but Humble is definitely one you should check out as well.

Not only are they always having sales but you can do some good by purchasing from them (and using my links!) because they donate to a charity of your choice.

Its actually a pretty cool process.

Right now, Humble is having their Humble Winter Sale – thousands of games are discounted right now, all for the PC, and the discounts are pretty deep. So if you’ve been looking for some new PC games to play, here are a few that you need to check out!

Here are also a few general links to get you started...

I Joined The Humble Partner Program

Like many other people who “work” online I do so to make money. Some of you stream, while others make videos. Me? I write on Gamers Elite and a few other websites to make money.

Awhile back I heard of the Humble website and many of you have probably read articles that were for the games that they have on their website.

One of the things I really like about Humble is that when you use someone’s link OR you simply purchase something on their website, they will donate a certain percentage to a charity.

As a Partner to the Humble Program, we get to choose what charity we would like to link to our accounts.

I didn’t join the Humble Partner Program to make money. Of course, if I make a few dollars, awesome...
