#10 Sega Genesis Collecting And Arms Dealing: See what happens when my son and I trade an air pistol for a SEGA Genesis. This was a favorite post because I caught it on tape, and that I did it with my son.
#9 Burgertime: I have alot of blog posts about Burgertime, but this post is significant because it was the first post that explained that I’m attempting to collect all of the licensed Nintendo games. What spurred me to to this was that the previous November I had finished my 60-in-1 arcade game. On it is Burgertime, but the machine was left at my in-laws house and I was craving Burgertime. Mmm delicious memories.
#7 Nintendo Golf New Label: Remember Hussy Golf? This was my experiment in creating new labels for Nintendo cartridges where the original label was ruined. This inspired some additional ones, though I have not yet created them due to lack of time.
#6 Burgertime New Personal Best: Ever look back at old yearbook photos and ask yourself “What was I thinking?” Thats kinda what I think of now when I look at this post. What kind of loser score is 44,500 points on Burgertime? Breaking 100,000 on the first level is expected!
#5 How To Clean Your Nintendo Games: I love this post! So many people make cleaning a Nintendo game a chore, and it doesn’t have to be. Also, many people think brasso and other ridiculous garbage will clean their game. Boy are they wrong.
#4 Videogame Box Art History: Racing the Beam is a pretty cool book, and the revelation of Activision’s marketing was genius!
#3 Red Or Blue: Take a trip down memory lane and relive the importance of wearing an 80′s bandana makes when you’re a character in a Nintendo Video game.
#2 The Spy Hunter Experience: I preach it all the time: Less is More when it comes to a videogame. Read a real life example of how Spy Hunter has a greater depth than Metal Gear Solid IV due to the player’s imagination
#1 Burgertime Grouping Performance: Yeah I know, I already have a Burgertime post mentioned in the top-ten, but this has to be my #1 favorite post of 2009. After struggling for months on Burgertime I was able to find a workable pattern for the first level that yields 100,000 each and every time (which 100k is not depicted in the video). Hear my excitement as I pull off the massive groupings.
The label for Golf is now attached! I'll be giving it away at www.videogamepriceguides.com in the month of September. More details coming soon…!
So what do you do when you obtain or already have in your possesion a cartridge whose label is trashed? You make a new label of course. I’ll post the actual steps to make this label for Nintendo Golf in a few days. But this is an excellent way to breath new life into a cartridge. Perfect for a gift as well.
