Star Wars The Force Awakens teaser trailer 2 analysis and thoughts

April 17, 2015

So this morning I got out of bed to be greeted with a new Star Wars The Force awakens teaser! What a great way to start the day! It looks awesome and reaffirms my hope that the film itself will be mean.

Here are my highlights and analysis:

Crashed Star Destroyer in desert

Epic beyond epic! What brought it down and how long has it been there? Is it a downed ship from the RoTJ Death Star battle (unlikely) or some more recent space battle (hope so). In the foreground we see a downed X-wing, implying this is some sort of Rebel vs Empire altercation and not some crazy DUI incident. Look carefully and you’ll see it’s taken some serious damage – there’s a massive hole along the elevated side but it looks like it was caused by an internal explosion! Xenomorphs? Meth lab? Batman?

It’s been revealed that the desert isn’t Tatooine, but a new planet called Jakku.

Vader

Poor Vader has seen better days, but it was nice to see a him referenced. Apparently he will make an appearance in the film in flash back sequences. I wonder where and why this scene takes place in the film. Someone has taken Vader’s mask, but who? And why? From a symbolic point of view Vader’s mask looks a lot more skull-like and creepy than usual. Could Vader becoming back as a zombie? LOL.

Fun fact: Luke’s narration is from a scene in RoTJ, although it seems to have been reordered.

Luke’s new hand and old lightsaber

I assume it’s Luke we see place a robotic hand onto R2’s head(?). It looks new and shiny. More robotic and less human-like.

A creature with ET-like arms like passes Luke’s light sabre from Empire to a feminine looking character.

X-wings

More x-wing over lake action. I’ll never get sick of this.

The Villain

We get another look, although very brief at the cross hilt light sabre being wielded by the hooded villain (Kylo Ren), with a revealing front shot showing his face shot a couple of seconds later (Spoiler alert: it’s actually Jar Jar). He stands in the middle of what looks like a war zone, fire burns all around him, stormtroopers in the background are up to no good and he shoots his hand toward the camera to perform some masterful sith black magic while looking really bad ass.

Stormtroopers

We see a legion of new stormtroopers looking all tough and proud. There’s a new-look black and white tie fighter in the background and an enormous banner hangs Nazi-style in the background with a new logo. Beneath the banner there’s someone important looking down at the stormtroopers. The environment is snowy like Hoth but there doesn’t seem to be any snow troopers.

Why are the stormtroopers facing away from their leader (assuming it is their leader), have they just been dismissed before being deployed into a war zone (possibly the scene featuring Kylo Ren).

Notice the big canon in the background looks quite similar to canons on each of the Death Stars.

We then see stormtroopers under attack in a tie fighter hanger. Lots of shooting and explosions. We then see Finn (John Boyega) take off his stormtrooper helmet – which again begs the question, what the hell is going on here? Is he a stormtrooper? Is he pretending to be one? What the hell?

Star Destroyer

We get a brief look at the latest Star Destroyer and a couple of shuttle ships. God I hope we get a good space battle from this film.

Super Stormtrooper

He looks like the collector’s edition stormtrooper. Is he spec ops? He’s wearing a cape and has a meaty weapon.

Falcon, Han and Chewy

Much like the first teaser this one finishes with up with a tie fighter-falcon chase scene, I assume  both scenes are from the same sequence. We see the derelict Star Destroyer from the beginning of the trailer (it looks like it’s been there for a long time). We get a quick look at a tie fighter pilot, in black flight gear and a mean-looking red striped helmet. And finally the highlight of highlights we see Han and Chewy in the Falcon looking very much at home, with Han saying “Chewy, we’re home”.

I’ve been thinking a bit about what “Chewy, we’re home” could actually mean. With Chewy armed with his crossbow I think they’ve just reclaimed the Falcon after losing it for quite some time. Whatever it means, I can’t wait to see it!

Epic Empire focussed Star Wars short film

March 26, 2015

Bad guys aren't always loveable characters, but Star Wars is a definite exception. Everybody loves Vader and the Empire has a very cool design aesthetic going on – Stormtroopers, Tie Fighters, Royal Guards, Imperial Walkers – I'll stop there, oh wait – Star Destroyers. With the exception of the Tie Fighter PC game many years ago and no doubt a few other games, comics and books the emphasis has always been on the good guys in Star Wars, which means without delving deep into canon we never get to really know the Empire. Perhaps not knowing about them adds to their coolness, although after seeing the short film below they seem a whole lot more cool.

A legend by the name of Paul Johnson has spent four years drawing and animating an epic Star Wars space battle from the Empire's perspective. If you're a Star Wars fan you need to watch it right now.

 

Most anticipated games of 2015

March 20, 2015

So things didn’t turn out great last year for gamers. A lot of games were pushed pack to 2015 while others had buggy releases or just didn’t deliver. 2015 is looking good, despite a couple of promising releases falling short (The Order 1886 I’m looking at you, and to a lesser extent Evolve and Dying Light).

Once again my pick of this year’s most awesome looking games reflects my taste for the dark and violent (I’m a nice guy though, really!). I like immersive and innovative games too. Here’s what to look out for in 2015:

 

Star Wars: Battlefront

In 2015, I’m mostly excited about Star Wars: Battlefront. Despite being a massive Star Wars nerd I missed the previous two Battlefront instalments, so I’m not too sure what to expect from Star Wars: Battlefront. Being developed by Battlefield’s DICE is very encouraging. Despite the appalling Battlefield 4 launch, BF4 is pretty tidy now and if Battlefront is anything like Battlefield I’ll be first in line thanks. So far there’s only a teaser trailer but it’s pretty rad.

 

The Division

The Division was on last year’s list, it was disappointing to see it delayed but it’s good to see developers not rushing through unfinished games. Since last year’s post there’s been new footage released including the 2014 E3 demo below. It’s rumoured to be released in October 2015, let’s hope it doesn’t get pushed back again!

Here’s my description of Tom Clancy’s The Division from last year:

Tom Clancy’s The Division is a third person tactical shooter MMO, with reports of a possible single player/offline mode too. It’s set in a devastated New York City after a massive pandemic creates chaos and brings society to its knees (OMG). You play as a Division agent, your goal is to restore order with other agents while looting and shooting. It all sounds very cliche but the game really does look rad. The graphical detail is pretty mind-blowing and when combined with the sounds of an empty city the atmosphere is edgy and leaves me wanting MORE.

 

Bloodborne

I’m really excited about Bloodborne, it's looking dark, gory and ultra violent! It’s an upcoming action RPG developed by From Software, the legends that gave us Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2. It is said to contain similarities with Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls but will essentially be a new IP. The game takes place in a dark, gothic Victorian world where you survive by defeating lots of nasties that have fallen victim to a horrific plague. Delicious!

 

No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky is an epic space exploration game. The object is to reach the centre of the galaxy. Sounds pretty straight forward, right? Read on. Players use spacecraft to explore a procedurally generated open universe (randomly generates as you explore it, a bit like Minecraft), full of planets with unique creatures and terrain. Apparently the game has the potential to generate over 18 quintillion planets – providing enormous depth for exploration and making the centre of the galaxy far, far away. The game will be available both online and offline and will feature epic space battles, crazy space dinosaurs and who knows what else.

 

 

The Witness

The Witness is a beautiful first person puzzle adventure and exploration game set on an uninhabited island. Sounds like Myst! I’m intrigued by the simplicity of this game and drawn to its art direction. It looks a little more laid back compared to the frantic games I’m used to, but I’m due for some mellow gaming.

 

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3 is another game I had on last year’s list that’s been delayed but is due out on May 19 2015. It’s an open world action RPG set in an epic fantasy world. Here’s my description from last year:

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an RPG video game that follows on from its predecessors, The Witcher and Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The game boasts having an open world larger than any other recent RPG game – 20% bigger than Skyrim.

Below is a recent 7 minute clip of a Witcher 3 side quest.

 

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

There’s a lot of mystery surrounding this game – which I think is intensifying the hype, but it does look intriguing. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a first person open world adventure game set in a stunning English village after the apocalypse. The story is based around six characters who have somehow been left behind despite the majority, if not all the global population disappearing.

 

Rime

Rime is an open world adventure puzzle game set on a somewhat mysterious island. It’s been compared to games like Ico and reminded me a little of the World in Shadow of the Colossus (sans monsters). The game is based around a boy who needs escape the island and a curse. The game looks gorgeous and lots of fun!

 

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

Rainbow Six Siege is a first person tactical shooter with a strong focus on multiplayer. The preview below shows a hostage rescue multiplayer game. It looks intense and a fresh approach to the online shooter world. I’m not a huge social gamer so I’m not sure if a game that relies so heavily on social interaction would be for me – but it looks cool.

 

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

I spent a chunk of time playing Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to The Phantom Pain – and I loved it.The Phantom Pain is a tactical stealth action game set in an open world in Africa and Afghanistan in 1984.It’s currently due to be release on September 1 2015 on consoles. See below for quite a long demo. 

 

 

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a first person shooter set in Germany, 1946. It’s a prequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, which overall was very well received. I finished the The New Order and I think it was a very tidy game but I didn’t think it lived up to the hype. I think being set in 1960 didn’t feel right, I’m more familiar with Wolfenstein being based during WW2, or close to it. Being set in 1946, I’m super excited about The Old Blood though, and I’m hoping it will feel a lot more like Wolfenstein.

Game play, art direction and everything else look very much the same as The New Order but there’ll be new weapons and Enemies. There’s a very slick announcement trailer (below) which I’m very excited about.

 

Doom 4

Doom 4  is the wild card addition to the list. There are rumours it will be released in 2015 but that’s all. Apparently it will be less like Doom 3 (intense horror) and more like the originals (more shooty). This doesn’t surprise me considering the success and shootyness of Wolfenstein, which was developed by Bethesda the developer bringing us Doom 4.

There’s only teaser previews online at the moment so enjoy a cyber demon peak below.

 

 

And finally there are a few games I’d like to see released or announced in 2015. Some of these are rumoured to be in development but there’s no solid reports just yet:

 

Red Dead Redemption 2

The first was amazing, then undead DLC was released. I can't wait to see what Rock Star do with a sequel. PLEASE.

Tom Clancy's Future Soldier 2

Tom Clancy's Future Solider was a really fun game, it was one of those games that didn't much attention that I'd thought I'd try and it was awesome! I'd love to see a follow up on current gen consoles.

COD4 remastered

One of my all time favourite games, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Oh how good it was, then it was slowly hacked to death and replaced by clone after clone. Please Activision!

 

The Last Guardian

Only in the last week has Sony renewed their copyright of this IP. I missed Ico, but Shadow of the Colossus was one of my favourite games of all time, I hope the third instalment in the trilogy becomes a reality despite being stuck in development hell for 8 years.

 

Fallout 4

Fallout 3 was great and I speak for everyone when I say the world is ready for another post apocalyptic open world RPG. Right?

 


Dead Space 4

Ah Dead Space, you started out so strong yet each instalment has diluted you a little – but somehow leaves me wanting more. Does this make me a Dead Space junkie? I guess so. Space horror at its best, bring on 4!

 

New design incoming: Uzi gold

March 05, 2015

 

A slightly different direction for 8-bitty, Uzi Gold is the first of 8-bitty’s sprite designs, which feature pixellated eye candy on the front of t-shirts. This design is inspired by one of my all time favourite games, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I put a lot of hours into the multiplayer component of that game and it was glorious. I’ve heard rumours that it could be re-released and remastered for current generation consoles, which I think is a marvellous idea – so long as it was only remastered and all other aspects of the game remain the same. One of my go-to weapons for COD4 was the beautiful gold plated Uzi, typically silenced with iron sights. I can’t remember exactly what had to be done to unlock it but it took a long time. 

8-bitty's Uzi Gold is a slightly comical pixellated take on the gold plated Uzi and will be available very soon in sizes S–2XL. More new designs are on the way.

Here’s a clip I found of the Gold Uzi in action (nostalgia warning):

 

The most anticipated games of 2014

February 12, 2014

Here’s a look at the video games I’m mostly looking forward to in 2014. The launch of the new consoles has brought with them a badass time for gamers – but so far not many actual PS4 and Xbox One games. I’ve been pretty happy with Battlefield 4, Assassins Creed 4 and Killzone Shadow Fall so far, but there are some pretty awesome games scheduled for release later this year. You’ll notice I’m more of a fan of darker/violent/scary/intense games, and not so much happy/yay/love/lighthearted games, the same goes for my t-shirt designs too.

Okay, here’s my pick:

 

Tom Clancy’s The Division

 

Tom Clancy’s The Division is third person tactical shooter MMO, with reports of a possible single player/offline mode too. It’s set in a devasted New York City after a massive pandemic creates chaos and brings society to its knees (OMG). You play as a Division agent, your goal is to restore order with other agents while looting and shooting. It all sounds very cliche but the game really does look rad. The graphical detail is pretty mind-blowing and when combined with the sounds of an empty city the atmosphere is edgy and leaves me wanting MORE. 

The Division will be released in Q4 2014 on PS4, Xbox One and Windows.

 

 

Destiny

 

The Heroes that brought us Marathon and Halo are set to release Destiny later this year. Destiny is an open world role playing first person shooter set 700 years in the future in a post apocalyptic world. You’re essentially tasked with saving humanity from nasty aliens who are trying to invade the last city on Earth. You play as a Guardian of the City and are granted some awesome powers to help kick alien ass. The art direction looks divine.

Destiny will be released in September 2014 on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One

 

 

Titanfall

 

For those who don’t know Titanfall is the upcoming release from Respawn, the guys that gifted us with the first Call of Duty Modern Warfare, COD4 – one of my all time favourite games. They worked under the name Infinity Ward before having a massive falling out with Activision and starting fresh as Respawn (not all the IW guys but from what I can tell, all the big hitters – and IW still operates with a different team). They’ve been fairly quite over the last few years reports surfacing that they were working on a FPS new game, that game it has since been revealed, is Titanfall. A futuristic first person shooter that looks like all kinds of crazy and fun. It’s multiplayer only so there’s no real plot (as far as I can tell). With lots of crazy wall jumping and giant mech robot dudes that you can operate, this game looks badass to the maximus. 

Titanfall will be released in March 2014 on Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows

 

 

Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones

 

I love the Game of Thrones TV show but when I first heard about this game I wasn’t very hopeful. Typically games based on movies or TV shows are absolute rubbish, but then I heard Game of Thrones was being developed by Telltale Games, the guys who brought us the highly acclaimed Walking Dead episodic series of games. There aren’t a heap of details around for this game just yet but with Telltale’s involvement it’s safe to assume the game will be more focused on narrative than action and it will be awesome. Really looking forward to this one! Hoping we’ll be able to poke Joffrey in the eye!

Game of Thrones will be released TBA 2014

 

 

The Evil Within

 

I love a good scary game, and I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve played one. The first Dead Space I thought was brilliant, even Doom 3 gave me a good scare, but it’s been a while. I think The Evil Within will break the drought. The Evil Within is an over the shoulder single player survival horror game. You play as Detective Sebastion Castellanos investigating a gruesome murder where an evil force awaits you. The game begins with you waking up to a horrific setting of blood and gore in a scary building with a gigantic crazy dude breathing down your neck. Nice!

The Evil Within will be released on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows

 

 

Daylight

 

Another decent looking scary game, Daylight is a first person survival horror game. You play as a woman who wakes up in a creepy old hospital with no idea how she got there. Creepy! A cool angle for this game is that the player does not have access to weapons, instead you have a phone which provides your only light source. Also! The game generates unique levels so that no two are the same (hello replay value) we need more of this.

Daylight will be released in Q1 on PS4 and Windows

 

 

Alien Isolation

 

Hooray, another scary game! 

I’m pleasantly surprised that an Alien game is coming out so soon after the recent disastrous release of Aliens: Colonial Marines. Initial reports for Alien Isolation have been very positive, so I’m being cautiously optimistic.

Alien Isolation is a first person survival horror game. Set 15 years after the movie Alien and 42 years before Aliens. You play the game as Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda, who is investigating her mother’s disappearance. As part of her mission she’s sent to a space station where she encounters an Alien of her own! Cool!

As you will learn from the video below the production team wanted to put the emphasis on tension and survival rather than make yet another shooty game.

Alien Isolation will be released in Q4 2014 on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows

 

 

Dying Light

 

Dying light is a zombie apocalypse open world game set in run down slums and cities. A cool angle that sets Dying Light apart from the other 5 million zombie games out there is the importance of day and night. During the day your objective is to collect supplies, set traps, craft goodies, save survivors and I’m sure there’s other fun stuff to do (pick up chicks?). Zombies aren’t a huge threat as they move slowly. At night though zombies power up! They sprint, jump and can take increased amounts of damage. Night also brings the Night Hunter, an especially badass type of zombie that only comes out at night. Love me a good zombie game.

Dying Light will be released March 31 2014 on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows

 

 

Watch Dogs

 

Watch Dogs has been one of the most talked about next gen titles for some time now. It was due to be released as a launch title for PS4 and Xbox One, but as with a lot of games lately its release has been pushed back to Q2 2014. 

Watch Dogs is an open word action adventure game centred around Aiden Pearce, an insanely badass hacker . The plot delves into the world of information warfare, and is set in an alternate reality Chicago. The city’s technology is operated by a single supercomputer that also contains detailed information on its residents and activities. By hacking into the supercomputer Pearce is able manipulate electronic systems and information to his advantage. 

Watch Dogs will be released on Windows, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

 

 

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

 

I haven’t played any Witcher games yet (too many games!) – but I’ve only heard good things. There have been a few screen caps and gameplay reports for Witcher 3 surfacing lately that have peaked my interest. It’s currently scheduled to be released i Q2 2014.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an RPG video game that follows on from its predecessors, The Witcher and Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The game boasts having an open world larger than any other recent RPG game – 20% bigger than Skyrim.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be release on PS4, Xbox One and Windows.

 

 

Wolfenstein: The New Order

 

The first FPS I can ever remember playing was on a Commodore 64, I have no idea what it was called (I should find out) but it had me sucked in. Fast forward a few years and I’m playing the Shareware version of Wolfenstein 3D on a friend’s computer – amazing. Before too long I had the full version on my family's computer and found myself bagging Nazis day and night. I finished it, then played it again for each level of difficulty beyond what I originally played, then kept playing it to find all the secret areas and levels. It was an amazing game for its time. Since then there have been several mediocre sequels that have ultimately just blended into the over saturated FPS market that has plagued the gaming world since the days of Doom and Quake. Here's hoping The New Order will be RAD.

Set for release at some point in 2014 is the latest in the Wolfenstein franchise, Wolfenstein: The New Order. Like its predecessors Wolfenstein: The New Order will be a first person shooter. Players once again take the role of William “BJ” Blazkowicz to blast Nazis away with an unforgiving arsenal of weapons and awesomeness. The twist to Wolfenstein: The New Order – it’s set in an alternate history in during the 1960s in which the Nazis won World War II. At this point it looks like Wolfenstein: The New Order will be single player only.

Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows.

God I hope it’s good.

The amazing work of Vesa Lehtimäki

January 17, 2014

As a massive Star Wars nerd and lover of good photography I love the work of Finnish artist Vesa Lehtimäki (Avanaut). Growing up as a kid I loved to collect Star Wars toys and I have no doubt that my imagination placed them in similar scenes to Vesa’s work below. It’s incredible how realistic some of these photos, you could be excused for thinking he’d used 1:1 models. 

 

There are many more images I wanted to post so check them out on his flickr page and why stop his facebook page too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kingdom, a beautifully minimal strategy browser game

November 29, 2013

 

In the crazy world of video games today where the player is constantly upgrading, improving and mastering their skills, Kingdom is refreshingly and simple and fun to play. The aim of the game is to stay alive – in a similar way to Minecraft. Being successful at surving depends on how you manage your resources (gold) and whether or not you can survive night raids from the dreaded Noodlers. Kingdom's aesthetic really took me back 20 years or so to a time when computer graphics needed to be compensated by imagination, something that I took for granted and miss a little today.

 

Check out Kingdoms right now by clicking here, it's a free browser game that's definitely worth a look!

Jason Edmiston – inspirational artist

October 06, 2013

Okay, after a busy week the halloween sale is up and running; GTAV is installing. Now is a good time for another blog post. I was hoping to post earlier but with 8-bitty, my own graphic design business and working at this place: mona.net.au my graphic design powers, and in fact all my other powers are feeling depleted.

Anyway, back to the blog. 

Jason Edmiston, an artist I've known for a long time – but not by name. For years now I've seen his work pop-up on tumblr and Facebook. It just wasn't until a little more recently that I realised these paintings were all by the same person! And this person had a name! Jason Edmiston! It all seems quite obvious now really, but never mind.

 

Edmiston's work is bold, bright, alive, nostalgic and thought provoking. I think many of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s would feel a strong connection to his rich pop culture references.

Two of my favourite pieces are more recent additions to his folio and feature the protagonists in two of my all time favourite movies: Terminator and Predator. (OMG GTAV has just finished installing). Edmiston's recreation of these badass characters well and truly returns them to their former glory. I really want hang them on a wall in 8-bitty's evil lair. They sold before I had a chance. I've thrown in a couple of extra favs too, Party Man, featuring  Jack Nicholson as the Joker and Gamorrean Guard, featuring a somewhat familiar scene from Return of the Jedi in Jaba's palace. Anyway I encourage all y'all to visit www.jasonedmiston.com to soak up the retro 80s/90s goodness ASAP.

 

I'm hoping that some day soon Emiston will paint either the Jurassic Park T-Rex, an ATAT (or Tie Fighter), Vader (if he hasn't already) or Robocop in a similar style to Predator and Terminator. 

Finally a proper blog post! The new site and 8-bitty at Oz Comic Con

August 23, 2013

Well, the last couple of months has been pretty large for 8-bitty! The new site, new designs and Oz Comic Con in Melbourne. The new site and Comic Con coincided in the same week which meant some late nights for me! :D

Since 8-bitty's been online I've wanted a better website, but using a template site to get me started made sense. After a busy xmas season last year I knew that 8-bitty was sticking around so early this year I started thinking about the new site. With a lot of help from 8-bitty's web wizard (www.weekends.ws) the new site launched at around 3am on July 4th.

A day and a bit later my trusty sidekick Michelle (The Babebarian) and I packed our suitcases with as many t-shirts as possible and flew to Melbourne. Comic Con was open on Saturday and Sunday but we were allowed to set up Friday afternoon. This was 8-bitty's first major event, neither of us had been to a Comic Con before. We were a little unsure what to expect.

As we approached the almighty Melbourne Exhibition Centre wheeling our chocced suitcases we felt a little unprepared as trucks unloaded stock for other vendors. Once inside we found our home for the next few days and felt more at ease. Comic Con the day before – before it's Comic Con is weird, lots of empty booths and serious looking people. No bright colours, no loud noise. The calm before the geek storm. I could barely imagine the transformation that was about to take place.

Saturday morning the alarm went off bright and early (actually I think it may have still been a little dark). I started the day by setting off the hotel's fire alarm which awoke the entire hotel. Epic! 

We arrived at Comic Con to finish setting up. At 8:55am an announcement was made "main gates will open in 5 minutes". We made last minute checks, waited, then boom! The doors were open and a powerful torrent of geeks came flooding in! Within minutes Comic Con was full of Batmen, X-Men, Ninja Turtles, Storm Troopers and zombies (I could go on). That first day is a bit of a blur now, we met a lot of great people, saw lots of amazing cosplayers and sold a bunch of tees. By the end of the day we were pretty exhausted. We managed to grab some food from Lygon Street before getting a good night sleep.

Day two was a similar blur to day one, except by the end of it we were a little more exhausted and had to pack up our little booth and wheel our left over t-shirts back to the hotel. Comic Con was a really awesome experience, I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Here's a short clip featuring a small interview with moi:

8-bitty at Oz Comic Con

July 03, 2013

Big news for 8-bitty this week! Gather around peeps.

8-bitty is attending Oz Comic Con Melbourne this weekend (6th & 7th). If there are any 8-bitty troopers that come along, please drop by and say hello! We'll give you 25% off for wearing your 8-bitty tee on the day and we'll be giving away high fives :)
