A TV Series entirely in 16bit pixel art? :: Code Monkeys

Well i would be Referring to Code Monkeys of course..
   Code Monkey's was a early  tv series created and aired on G4 tv,  the show's main premise was to appeal to gamers, especially ones who remembered the good old days.  The show is entirely in pixel art and is based around 2 very early video game designers in the 1980's.  Before you start thinking this is a kids show just because it is a cartoon, think again.  Sex , Drugs, Hitler, and a good amount of violence are ever present themes in most episodes.  The tv-show aired for 2 seasons before it got shut down due to low viewer ratings...probably because they aired the show like once a god damn week.  Episodes include tons of easter eggs referring to just about every popular video game from super mario all the way down to pong.  This show was created for gamers and only gamers :)

ot a lot of great clips of the show on youtube, so here is the best i could find :


Ok im done blogging on mmorpgs, this is only my second, but it will be at least 4-5 months until another decent one is released, but there are still a good bunch of older ones still played. But more to the point RIFT has finally come out of beta, and is blitzkrieging the game market.  Comparable to World of Warcraft this game takes place in a world with 2 different factions, The Defiant and the The Guardians.  There both enemys fighting against a common threat to the whole world, Rifts have opened up across the world that release demons upon the land. You will be wandering the world and a portal will randomly open up somewhere in the world, Demons come down from it attacking everything they can.  What separates rift from most games is that the "rifts" can release enough enemys and attacks to actually take over the capitol citys and settlements.  The rifts send out attack forces upon the world at random times and can take over towns and use them as there own bases.  In RIFT there is a actually a threat in the world, in wow there is nothing comparable to this.   But unfortunitly that is about is it, adding in a new aspect it is a another questing/hack'n/slash'n mmo.   If you are mmo-less you should pick this up, it is a beautiful game with a good player base.  But if you are currently playing Wow,Lotro,Cabal,Maplestory,etc... you should stick with those.  This is another mmo, 9/10 stars.  Not eneough new elements.
