Justin Robinson on April 28, 2010 at 7:38 pm
Mike, on behalf of myself and thousands of other fans, instead of waiting hour after hour for you to appear on ustream, do you think it would be possible to notify us fans, via your blog or anything, when you plan on appearing.
Sheila Patricia on April 28, 2010 at 4:13 pm
Hi there Mike!
Blackbirds is AWESOME and so is the game. I’ve been waiting for LP to come to Mexico since I was 12, please, is it any possibilitie you’ll ever come?
PD:I don’t know why some fans are just complaining about the song, I known you changed your style since Minutes to Midnight but I found it great, I personally liked it See ya!
Alex on April 28, 2010 at 11:00 am
Any chance that Blackbirds can be put on to your ipod, without using the game?
DianaLPfan on April 28, 2010 at 9:51 am
i think game is awesome but a lot of people don’t have iStuffs(and i also)so they can’t play it=((
can i hope that it will be version for computer???
PinkyLoulou on April 28, 2010 at 8:19 am
We need ”Blackbirds” lyrics. There’s a lot of confusion going on. xD
Jenji-The-Snail on April 28, 2010 at 7:41 am
The game looks like it’s amazing!
But I don’t have any IStuff though! D:
Any chance of it being released for the computer?
narayan on April 28, 2010 at 7:23 am
Voice in my head is your voice.
Terry X on April 28, 2010 at 6:51 am
Hey Mike, I just watched the video and I was amazed that you played so many nintendo games haha
Have you played the Final Fantasy games back in supernintendo?
M_Bugashata on April 28, 2010 at 6:01 am
Were you too busy to tell us that Download to Donate added three new songs? :\
sandra on April 28, 2010 at 1:47 am
mike i love you so much but cut you hair!!!!
Resindentbloke on April 28, 2010 at 1:33 am
Will you play Blackbirds, Across the Line or Not Alone live some day?
Krys on April 28, 2010 at 12:07 am

Yann I saw this pixel video is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thx for de add.
miles on April 27, 2010 at 11:44 pm
i really like linkin park, but i really don’t like the game
Yann on April 27, 2010 at 9:02 pm
Congrats for the game.
By the way, I saw this vid and I couldn’t not share it to you : http://vimeo.com/10829255
Mike W on April 27, 2010 at 8:23 pm
I just downloaded the game today and it looks AMAZING!!!!!
power on April 27, 2010 at 6:43 pm
hey mike how I can play if I have no ipod, and the song like a demo, shall know more of the new album
RachelFarzati on April 27, 2010 at 6:37 pm
LOVED 8bit rebellion. A little short though and was only worth about 3 bucks. But I’m still glad I bought it.
ammy aybar on April 27, 2010 at 6:34 pm
Aiman on April 27, 2010 at 5:02 pm
Mike, you said you would post the lyrics to Blackbirds!
Yourdananess on April 27, 2010 at 11:46 am
Mike- I watched the ustream recording. Just wanted to point out that the 8 bit tracks as well as some others that you acquire as you move through levels are added to a thing on the menu called “Media Player” – and on media player you can add those tracks to your ipod touch/iPhone. So I’m guessing that Blackbirds will be available on the media player once you beat the game.
u r aw3sum l0l0lz. (I had to, sorry.)
Mark Tirone on April 27, 2010 at 11:28 am
Hey Mike. It’s great that you have this game. I think there might be a glitch or something in it. I went through the entire game and I’m not able to jump lol. No matter what I do, I just can’t jump, OR get back to the instructions for the controls. And then in the end of the game, before I get the guys back, I can’t do anything. I can beat pixie but then I can’t shoot towardsh him. Only away and I can only walk but he always gets me. GRRRR!
LPolechka on April 27, 2010 at 11:09 am
I wish i were there on ustream..once again i missed it:-S
Talking about pozitive,i’m now listenin to tha Blackbirds..probably for the 20th time XD i’m already addicted to it…everytime i listen to it,i’m discoverin smth new..yeah,that sounds a bit strange..but im really dying of it..
Btw,Mike,talkin about the meaning of it,ure [LP]i mean,writing 2d time about the death(1st in’Walking Dead’) and it brings hope..that’s really unbelivable!!
Tnks for the song&game(i didnt play it)!!
sebnem on April 27, 2010 at 11:07 am
Hi Mike, this day I am born yesterday
send me a signed photo of you?=))
MandieLynn on April 27, 2010 at 10:12 am
so i started playing 8 bit rebellion and am slightly addicted… well my ipod started dying and i had no idea what to do cuz im in school and can’t charge it lol.
but are there gna be anymore additions to this game like 8 bit rebellion 2 or somethinggg?
Free Palestine on April 27, 2010 at 9:51 am
hey guys i have heard the song on youtube…is it the original or it is like a DEMO..?
Jessiexo on April 27, 2010 at 4:06 am
Come on guys this is ridiculous! The band does so much to keep us entertained yet you bitch about an iPod… (cough Cody Wayne) I got a touch just for this game if you don’t want to do that then download the song.. Just man up and quit whining
jumpman93LP on April 27, 2010 at 2:51 am
I’d sooo buy it but i have no credit card and don’t wan’t to buy a itunes card for 50 bucks…
Damn, what should i do?!
Casey Mosley on April 27, 2010 at 1:32 am
Hey Mike, there’s a mix-up in the game. you know the statues of you guys that are 1000coins. well you’re labeled as phoenix and phoenix is labeled as you….
stephane barnatt on April 27, 2010 at 12:25 am
great game, great price
games a little illuminatiesque with the supposed tavistock projects, and the song sounds like a leaving such an organisation
linkinparkette on April 26, 2010 at 9:29 pm
that is cool, i am guessing about the time i get a ipod thingies its going to be a 8 bit rebellion 2 -.-
Xa3rio on April 26, 2010 at 9:11 pm
Got the game on my Iphone, Finished it, Love it!
But hopefully the album wont be as the song that’s put within the game(blackbirds i mean). There’s nothing wrong with the song, but it lacks the hard sounds(including chester’s screaming), but although it finally has mike rapping, so it’s definatelly going in the good direction.
What will come? only time will tell…
Cody Wayne on April 26, 2010 at 8:09 pm
well mike let me give a negative comment. I’ve said it a thousand times not everyone has a touch or iphone so this game is pointless talk to the ppl who don’t own those. also since the song has leaked it seems that you’re sell out idea has back fired. you guys may as well post it on itunes so ppl like me can hear it. you guys were my heroes mike but this “exclusive to game” song is ridiculous and quite frankly it shows that you guys are starting to sell out. please don’t the rest of us fans deserve the song as well.
Ariya on April 26, 2010 at 7:51 pm
Awesome game. I finished it in one day because it’s so addicting. Can’t wait for the new missions and songs.
alysia on April 26, 2010 at 5:00 pm
so pumped its finally out but i wished it would have come out before or after the last week of college, no time to play it in between finishing my projects
Karen on April 26, 2010 at 4:08 pm
Aww it’s soooo amazing <3 Good job The song/music video were really cool and this app was 100% worth the money. =)
SteppinRazor on April 26, 2010 at 3:46 pm
*super duper sad!face*
iTunes won’t let me download the game.
I have $15 on my account and it just won’t let me buy the game!!!!
Dawn on April 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm
The game is AMAZING! Since I don’t have an IPhone, Ipod Touch, or and IPad, my best friend was kind enough to buy it so I could play it on his IPod Touch. He’s not a huge Linkin Park fan, but he even said that he thought the game was awesome! Great job Mike!
Helio on April 26, 2010 at 2:44 pm
Yaay the game is GREAT!!
Ray on April 26, 2010 at 1:39 pm
Hey uhmm igot the game n everytime igo to other venues it doesn’t load n it closes out?!!! What’s wrong with the thing man?!! Ispent 5bucks n that’s my lunch money!!!!!
Gunner on April 26, 2010 at 1:31 pm
The gaaaame is Grrreat!!
really love Blackbirds, it has some hybrid theory taste!
Mike ! u better have some news about the new album soon! i can’t wait 4 the album, hope u n the guys make it quick XD ! LP ROCK$$$ !
segz on April 26, 2010 at 1:31 pm
My, my. Now I definitely have to get an iTouch. I was putting it off, but no more can I wait.
Viper619 on April 26, 2010 at 1:28 pm
Hey mike,dont forget to share your 8-bit gamertag. would be cool to see what type of character you are using and chat a little with you.
chester7890 on April 26, 2010 at 12:55 pm
This game is Kick-azz!!!!I stayed home from school to play it! lol!!!!! Blackbirds is awesome what is’nt awesome about this game??????????
GDAWG on April 26, 2010 at 12:33 pm
Mike (again), will “Blackbirds” be posted on iTunes or is there a way on 8BR to download to your iPhone/iPod Touch?
JuliaB on April 26, 2010 at 12:24 pm
I love the game
I have a question: Can you tell all us gear nerds a bit about your equipment ? I have a (small) homestudio myself, and I’d love to get a few ideas from yours
Noel on April 26, 2010 at 12:12 pm
why isnt it available for ipod touch? on the itunes store it says its only available for the iphone
GDAWG on April 26, 2010 at 12:11 pm
Congrats on the new game and on “Blackbirds”! I just cannot stop listening! When will you post the official lyrics?
Ellsworth on April 26, 2010 at 11:54 am
Congrats. Can’t wait to try this out. A reason to use one of my iTunes cards. Rad.
CurlyLp on April 26, 2010 at 11:51 am
YAAAAY finally the game!!! *party in my house* ;D
I’m happy for all people who already have the game. Enjoy it! I just will buy an iPod Touch and get the game in this or next weekend. Until then i have to wait. I’m happy because the game is cheap (at least here in Portugal) Btw, i didn’t listen the new song “Blackbirds”. I just want listen when i have the game, because it’s the objective. I’m so anxious because all people are happy and liked the game and song. But i wait some more days. Btw, read this Mike: My mom said that want to learn play 8-Bit Rebellion. LOL My familly likes LP. So yeah you guys rock!! It’s a great ideia, congrats!! =D =D
linkinparkbelgiummanager on April 26, 2010 at 11:40 am
I already beated the game. I have the ‘Blackbirds’ song! yaaaaayyyy
To bad you can’t copy it to your Itunes or Ipod.
Maksim rus on April 26, 2010 at 11:40 am
After 2 hours after release i founded BLACKBIRDS in net
Great song. But for game i have not I-stuff
And Mike, are you answering messages at your profile at LP official site?
kristaps on April 26, 2010 at 11:29 am
Hola ! que tal Mike? felicidades !!! espero que el nuevo album salga cuanto antes.
saludos desde España!!!
Numb_x on April 26, 2010 at 10:53 am
You six have made a LOT of fans happy. I know that we cannot thank you enough! Because there was a lot of hype I couldn’t help but worry that the game wouldn’t live up to our expectations (which were sky high) but you really went above and beyond with it
The 8-Bit music is amazing, the characters are all so lovable, the missions are tons of fun and the ability to add friends/chat was a GREAT touch.
Unlike other bands, you actually put time and effort into this game, you didn’t just put a song in Tap Tap Revenge and call it yours. Needless to say, it paid off! You have shown real originality and not being biased, but I have to say it is the best iGame i have ever played
PS: I am one of that small group of fans who cannot WAIT to beat the game because she didn’t download Blackbirds…all I’ve heard is a 17 second snippit
Thank you SO much
Chris on April 26, 2010 at 10:49 am
Mike I have to say that the game and new song are both awesome. Blackbirds are really great and I hope we’l be able to hear it live at sometime. Greatings from Poland
Alex on April 26, 2010 at 10:01 am
Mike and Linkin Park , your game is perfect !! =)
and your new song is incredible , amazing , unbelievable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wait with impatience your new album =)
You are the best =D
EpicLinkinPark on April 26, 2010 at 9:52 am
Thanks for shouting about Street Fighter and Castlevania LOL. Old school games will always be classics. I remember drawing nintendo characters too and stuff. The good ol’ days. Haha. Anyways it’s great to hear from you and it was awesome chatting with you. Oh I tweeted you and posted it on Ustream comments, but um DRILL MAN is a real character and here’s the video link from Youtube. Haha. See your not crazy and didn’t make it up LOL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRZgMs8scpg

I’ve just got the 8-Bit Rebellion! and it’s… AWESOME! but I have to say that I expected a screamy voice from Chaz! anyway, it’s really AWESOME. congrats for the 8-Bit Experiment!
Caitlin on April 26, 2010 at 8:25 am
yaaaaaaay I bought it this morning ;]
lol it was here already 26 april and in the USA in actuallt still was 25 april.. (:
but i have a question, do you need some updates on your iPod Touch? ’cause I have a first generation and the game didn’t want to load to my iPod.. I hope that’s the problem.. otherwise I wouldn’t know what’s wrong.
Wolfenstein 3D on April 26, 2010 at 8:13 am
Blackbirds is good! Game is little short but with song worth 4 euro! Thanks!
I wanna have itunes shop for mp3 in my country!!!
KATHYxx on April 26, 2010 at 8:08 am

Green Apple on April 26, 2010 at 8:00 am
It’s cool! But I havent got IPhone and Itune. It’s sad =( I’m waiting for Blackbirds now
widya rahayu on April 26, 2010 at 7:59 am
i was so amazed when i saw my cousin had an iPhone. told him about 8B-R and he was so excited about. still, for some fans, it’s an exclusive stuff in an expensive product. but at least it gave me an idea to draw. and i have my own rebellion..
Michael Gonzalez on April 26, 2010 at 7:50 am
That was a great chat last night. There weren’t any spammers so it made it a lot better.
Thank you for answering my two questions about it being on Itunes and if you use fruity loops lol
I feel all excited and happy. To top it off I beat the game a little while ago and I love the song. I cannot stop listening to it.
You guys did great with the game.
Cannot wait for the future updates.
Take care Mike!
Aditya_the_warrior_within on April 26, 2010 at 7:36 am

TheGlueLpFan on April 26, 2010 at 6:59 am
I finished it today for about 3-4 hours:DI was offline though so I bet it would be even cooler with internet connection.Btw on your mission I got totally confused at a point because I couldn’t find the last Pixxl Corp ad that I had to cover up lol But yeah congrats on the awesome game,I can’t wait to beat it at least 400000 more times and yeah.And I missed the video chat again…hopefully someday I will be awake and in front of the computer when you show up:D
Alexandra Nofi on April 26, 2010 at 6:53 am
I had a feeling you’d be on ustream, but, I was so tired last night that I had to go to bed.
By the way, Blackbirds totally leaked yesterday and I cheated and listened to it on youtube. It reminds me of the story by Stephen King, about the twins, and how the flocks of blackbirds in the end come to take the evil twin away. It’s interesting the way you compared starting over to the old wive’s tale.
Yesterday was very eventful for like, everyone. Ya’ll put out 8 Bit Rebellion, my mom’s car got painted like a ladybug, and we rescue a pet turtle, we renamed her Sadie.
Would you like to give Sadie a shoutout? It’s her first day with her new family and she needs to feel welcome
HBK19 on April 26, 2010 at 6:50 am
yeay!! cant wait to hear blackbird!! yo mike, its already 1st quarter of 2010 man!Few months ago you mentioned that the new album was supposed to go out arnd this time. But it has been postponed again and again and again. When is it going to finally be ready? I seriously cant wait anymore! Its been 3 years since m2m, when is the new album coming out!? No updates on the new album recently though
U2 on April 26, 2010 at 6:50 am

EvoOba on April 26, 2010 at 5:14 am

Julian on April 26, 2010 at 3:00 am
A funny question came by my mind, do the 8-bit version of you guys (in game) support the ‘Hi-version’ or the 8-bit version of the songs? Ha.
It’s finally out! Can’t wait to get a taste of it! (on my friend’s iPod…)
Micosa on April 26, 2010 at 2:58 am

This game was totally worth it, spent the whole day playing it non stop. Blackbirds is awesome but i really need it on my playlist, how do i get it out of the game?
keineAhnung on April 26, 2010 at 12:48 am
The ustream chat was awesome, just made my day…lol…nes for the win!!!! ROFL (so many great memories…my favs were zelda and kid icarus…lol)…anyway, wish I had an iphone to be able to play the game
Zara on April 26, 2010 at 12:26 am
Hi Mike thanks for coming and chatting to us, I loved the game and Blackbirds.
Ive posted on http://www.mikeshinodaclan.com about the Shinoda Ninjas for you.
Aditya_the_warrior_within on April 26, 2010 at 12:26 am
hey ! Blackbirds is awesome
glad to hear you rapping (well how much you did even if it was little) again after long
can’t you guys release it for PC ?
well even if thats not possible, why not on an online p;atform like those stupid games like farmville on zynga ?
either way everyone can play it.
lpfmfan on April 26, 2010 at 12:24 am
Thanks for the shout out Mike! And no I’m not from Italy or New Zealand or wherever you thought I was from…I beat the game and I played for hours but I live in Texas. That surprise you? haha. Great game I loved it!!
and about the Shinoda Ninjas, we got it all for you: http://mikeshinodaclan.com/2010/04/shinoda-ninjas/
JanV on April 26, 2010 at 12:21 am
My friends in cyberspace are addicted to 8-bit rebellion at the moment and are tweeting just about it. All this is making me jealous since I don’t own any iStuff (except an iPod Classic)…can you please release the game for PC too? Not everyone owns iStuff, right?
Btw, I watched your ustream chat from a proxy site because my school internet has blocked ustream couldn’t comment because of that…
Hoping to hear Blackbirds soon!
Thanx 4 everything
PS: please ask Joe to start tweeting. he’s got more than 1000 followers; what the hell is he waiting for?!?!?
Jen on April 26, 2010 at 12:15 am
Love the game, Mike! So happy it got released it Aus! =D
