Catch up on Star Wars…in 8-bits!!!

Well, it’s finally come. Star Wars is back! And believe it or not, I’m actually NOT that big a fan. I know, I might as well hand over my nerd card. I mean, what self respecting Sci Fi nut (which I TOTALLY am) doesn’t dig the epic space opera about dudes with 4 foot laser swords with psycic powers? I mean that sounds legitimately badass right? Well lots and lots of people sure think so! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t HATE these movies. I’ve seen the original trilogy and while I did enjoy those films, they never quite got me to LOVE them. Can’t really explain it. So, the hype over The Force Awakens has not really given me the “Star Wars fever” that has run rampant. With that being said, I came across this video and immediately LOVED IT!!! Not because it’s Star Wars, but because it’s a brief retelling of the first three movies using old school Nintendo “8-bit” graphics. Not only that, but each “movie” uses a different 8-bit NES game to tell its story. “A New Hope” seems to be a modification of the classic The Legend Of Zelda. The other two movies use the perennial thumb-busters Mega Man and Golden Axe. Definitely worth a watch if you’re into some old childhood nostalgia around this crazy time of year!!!
