Anything you can do I can do better

Okay, This is the precursor to what I’m working on.

I will take pictures. 

I will post instructions.

I will give links.

I will make sure that everything I do on this upcoming project is outlined so you can do it yourself if you want to.

 

So, the question is this… Garen, What are you building?

….

….

This….

I am building a combination NES/SNES from scratch!

I’m including 40 or 50 games from each system, using retro controllers that I picked up off amazon.com, and I’m compiling the entire system in to a wooden box that will be painted, prined, and badged with my own knockoff flair.

It’s a personal project, but I’m quite excited for it.

It’s okay, you can be jealous.

More info to come soon. Just wait and see.

Metroid

It’s time for another video game post.
I like video games, I really do, but quite often I wind up liking a video game that I’m NO good at. I like the concept, I like the game ply, but really, I just don’t have the mental or testicular fortitude to finish it.
In this case, it’s Metroid.

The game had awesome controls, it had a amazing story line, and the basis behind the game was EPIC in every sense of the word.

I originally played the game on the NES when I was only about 9 years old. I was HORRIBLE at it. I then picked it up on SNES and was still horrible at it.

I moved in to Metroid Prime on the game cube… guess what… I was horrible at it. I always found myself getting scared of a game. Seriously, how stupid is that?

Anyways, I would play, I would research it on the internet, and I would enjoy looking at it as a fanboy.

Well, I picked up an SNES emulator tonight, I picked up a copy of Super Metroid, and I’m going to sit down and try and play it. I’m interested in how it turns out.
I might get scared. I might give up. I dunno. We’ll see what happens. Hopefully, I don’t totally suck at it. And if I do, I’ll just pick up Super Mario Brothers again. I know I can beat that one.
Final Fantasy 7 is in my list too. 🙂
