The Daily Hotness: Call Me Gameboy


Oliver Hindle is a 8-bit/chiptune artist from the UK who performs under the name Superpowerless. On his other YouTube channel, he's started doing "Gameboy Solos" over popular songs, such as the first one he did above of the annoying pop earworm "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. He's also done "Bangarang" by Skrillex and Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up". One day, he'll finish his nerdcore collaboration song about The Big Bang Theory (featuring, among others, me), but until then, you can also check his tribute to the British show The IT Crowd.

Today, I reviewed the "game" Damage Inc., Tony wrapped up his awesome fan game series, Jim informed us of the ten best reasons to own a Vita, and more happened on the twenty-ninth of August in the year 2012.
