Title: Because you can't collect binary Posted: January 19, 2008 (12:00 AM)
A few weeks ago, Daff got me one of the best Christmas presents a guy like me could ask for. While I got some very cool stuff, like the ninja-black Wage from Ugly Dolls, and Gamer Theory by McKenzie Wark, he gave me his Nex! Coincidentally, he tossed in Karnov and Legendary Wings. You sir, have serious psychic talents. Legendary Wings was my favorite game for many years.
I had a handful of NES games to begin with, but never anything to play them on. I could have went and bought an NES, but they always look like they've been living in the gutters. Besides, the cartridges are what really matter to me. Screw emulation when you have the real thing. They might look and play exactly the same, but when I look at my bookshelf, The Legend of Zelda glistens and shimmers as though it's looking back. Can a ROM do that?
My store has only recently started accepting older games, and people are finally catching on. These past two weeks have been amazing. I've managed to snag some great games, including Bubble Bobble, Skate or Die, Metroid, and Bionic Commando. Sadly, oh so very sadly, I missed both Maniac Mansion and River City Ransom. All I have to do is find Dodgeball though, and everything will be okay.
Thanks again Daff.

Hey, You gave me Harry Potter 5 and Casino Royal on Blu-Ray. And your karaoke performance on New Years was better than anything I could have asked for for Christmas. Oh and can you e-mail me some of those new years pictures? I need proof of my sweet mustache.
Maybe my useless Psych major gave me my psychic talents. I'm in the restaurant business and have done nothing other than an internship with my degree. (I'm part owner of the restaurants though so its not as bad as it sounds.)

I own exactly 3 NES cartridges.
