This week, the folks over at CineFix released an NES-styled rendition of Brian De Palma's 1983 gangster flick, Scarface. The movie's most iconic scenes have been carefully recreated using the 8-bit aesthetic that Mario taught us to love. But pixilating a drug lord doesn't make him any less violent.
