I love my game systems but I really do miss Arcades.
I’m jealous of everybody who already has a Turtle Blimp. If you’re like me and haven’t found it in stores, yet, here’s a really great look at what we’re missing.
This guy cracks me up. He reminds me of Matt from Dinosaur Dracula.

Description: ”Shadowcrypt is a challenging combat-platformer inspired by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and the look & feel of the Castlevania series. It is reminiscent of classic hack ‘n slash arcade games, with emphasis on tactical sword & shield combat, dark atmosphere and elegant simplicity.”
I would love to see something like this dinosaur girl in a school uniform as a character in Nickelodeon’s TMNT. It would please me most if she weren’t a love interest for an existing male character, and if the universe didn’t revolve around her. Just, you know, a distinct character with her own motivations and an interesting personality.

From my personal collection: it’s the very first advertisement for the Nintendo Entertainment System!
This particular copy comes from a November, 1985 issue of New York magazine. In fact, as far as I can tell, New York is the only publication that ever ran it.
Seem kind of strange? Well, let’s remember that in 1985, there weren’t any video game magazines left. They’d all either shut down or converted into computer magazines…usually both. But why New York magazine specifically?
That’s because Nintendo didn’t launch the NES nationwide right away. They only sold it in New York during the 1985 holiday season, as a test; video games were dead, and no store wanted to carry them, so Nintendo had to prove that people even wanted the thing.
You can read all about the 1985 NES test market launch, including interviews with three people who worked it, if you go back in time about six months and head to 1UP.com. Apparently they nuked a lot of the old features and, game preservationist though I am, I am terrible at archiving my own work.
