Remember the “Magnavox Odyssey” video game console? – Well then you’re old! This was the first console released in the Fall of 1972.
Remember Atari 2600? – I was born the very month this console was released, Oct, 1977.
K, now remember Nintendo? – July 1983. I remember my cousin, Lorenzo, getting one for Giftmas. We played that thing all day. Super Mario Bros.! Tecmo Super Bowl! Contra!
I also remember the first time we got one. My brother and I were so excited about it. My brother liked all the sports games, and I actually liked Double Dribble, Blades of Steel and Tecmo Super Bowl too. However I always liked the dumb adventure games like, “Boy and his Blob”! “Maniac Mansion”! Bionic Commando! Battle of Olympus!
Brian and I love action games like GI Joe! Bad Dudes! TMNT (arcade style)! Castlvania! Hudson’s Adventure Island! Mega Man series!
What fun! What a waste of time! I had no moderation then. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have all of those games again? Well folks… YOU CAN! Imagine having ALL the games Nintendo put out for the NES!
That’s right, one of my best friends, Ed Prevost from the infamous http://www.edwardprevost.info has put together an NES pack and it is amazing.
He is offering this program for FREE. All you have to do is:
1) Click —===HERE===—
2) Download the installer.
3) Install the iPlayer.
4) Click on the iPlay logo and go to File. You will find over 800 games to play right on your PC!
5) You can use the keys on your keypad if you want mediocre play. However if you are interested in retro play, you can buy controllers to use to play the games. You can either:
a) buy a USB connector for paddles HERE and either buy paddles On-line, Ebay, your local garage sale, or dig some up in that attic box that has all your old toys. Or,
b) buy a controller already converted into a USB NES paddle. I have not been able to find any online though. (Yes, I tried phreque, but their site was down)
So there you go. Thanks Ed! Enjoy everybody.
