Own a piece of 8 bit-era art in the form of these recycled NES cartridges

Sometimes you just can't help but to pine for the "good ol' days" of video games. You know, back when mankind murdered trees by the hundred just so you could read that 50-page manual and learn how to jump with the A button (MMM that smell). The days when ROMs came packed in a convenient plastic cartridge that doubled as a family-sized coaster. And we certainly all experienced the utter joy of blowing into said cartridges with all of our might just so they would work at all. The good ol' days, indeed.

If you, like me, share a fondness for the classic 8-bit era and modern games, then hop onto the Information Superhighway and cruise on over to There, you'll find a magnificent clash of old- and new-school. Check out these hawt pics--see that? That's Breaking Bad reimagined as an NES game. And the one below? Halo, ya'll. Halo on NES. Baller, no? Baller.

Perform a quick browse of your favorite gaming franchise, favorite film, favorite whatever, and you'll no doubt find an NES cartridge repurposed as a work of art, featuring a tasteful, high-res 8-bit label. And if you don't? Scroll down to the bottom of the website and you'll find contact info to request a one-of-a-kind custom design.
