Yes the 1980s nintendo. Good thing mines modded for HDMI output to my HDtv. So mine looks better than the orignial system.

I am playing a 1986 Actioin Adventure game called Dragon Ball. Kinda sucks but I loved the show when i first saw it in 5th to 6th grade summer in 1994-95.

That's actually one of the first Dragon Ball games North America got. It was called 'Dragon Power' over here when it was released stateside.



The game in it's original English form plays very strange, because the player knows there is a story of sorts, but all the actual Dragon Ball references from the anime were removed from the game. Unless you were a die-hard anime fan in the 80's you likely had no clue of the origins of that game.

It unfortunately was a victim of the many Japanese games that got released in the United States and then was subsequently altered to the point of not being recognizable from the original.

that made me a little sick.

I did read an article recently that stated that after extensive testing and studying physiological responses they determined that many* Apple fans respond to iProducts the same way that religious people respond to scripture/worship et cetera.

You want another N64? I was about to ebay it and the few games I have. I also have a genesis w/CD and a few games for that going, too. A chipped playstation one with about 15 games? If I had properly invested the money I spent on video games in my youth, I would probably be fruggin wealthy.
