I have a feeling it’ll be a long time…
Well, the last time I updated, it was a snowy and cold Easter Sunday. These past few days, the weather has been sunny and warm here in Fredericton, which is quite the contrast from that last post.
I’m slowly getting back to a point where I can freely update this thing without having it feel forced. I believe Tenacious D had a song (or perhaps an episode of their show) dedicated to their “search for inspirado”.
Well, this just might be it for me…
There’s no reason for Shaq Fu to be in there… but anyway.
My lovely wife got this for me for our first wedding anniversary (holy crap, already??), and it has re-invigorated my love of retro gaming. It’s called a Retro Duo, which, as you can tell by the photo, can play both NES and Super NES titles. An adapter can be purchased to play Sega Genesis titles, buuuuut I’m not sure I’ll go down that road.
In any case, there’s something to be said about playing a game from its cartridge. I don’t know if it’s the fuzzy image, the lag, the strange glitches that show up on each side of the screen as you scroll, or what… but it sure feels nice.
Hopefully more updates very soon!
