    Fun article, I really like looking at this video game stuff.

    Nightmare Circus is stupefyingly real. It was actually released in Brazil, with that box art.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightmare_Circus

    And I actually had, maybe I still have but I can't find it, a Watara Supervision. It's kinda like a lower tech Gameboy, something that's like an evolutionary step between a Tiger LCD and a Gameboy. There's lot of blur and the games are primitive and not very good, but there was a Breakout type puzzle game on it called Crystball that I actually really liked.

    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.

    Bah! It's nowhere near as froggy as the Sega Genesis kiosk!

    If I remember right, the WATARA SUPERVISION was featured on....THE PRICE IS RIGHT around 1993 or 1994...I remember this because I was with a my grandmother who watches the show like all old people do. Now if I only remembered what the MSRP Bob Barker said it was....

    Donkey Kong Jr. Math only costs about $20, at the most, on Amazon. Just like that Simpsons game, the cartridge itself isn't worth squat, but an old, beat-up box apparently is (if the box is included, that is; I assume so, judging by the picture).

    The Angry Video Game Nerd paid $250 for his nonworking Jaguar CD, so the auction Peter highlighted is actually a bargain.

    Stack-Up is also valuable partly because the cartridge itself contains a special converter that can be used to play Japanese Famicom games on an American NES.

    Oh man, so the SNES Hands free controller was a real thing!

    I remember as child, I was in the hospital for something and there was a kid across from me in this shared room that had one of those and I thought it was some homebrew contraption.

    Remember the Chrono Cross clock from the first edition? It showed up again, and this time, I bought it:



    Now I have to decide whether or not to actually use it....

    There is a good reason why Phear looks like a Tetrisphere knock off: Phear eventually became the Tetrisphere game.

    Need we take a knock at Kevin Eastman. He's almost certainly not at liberty to discuss what's planned for the next Turtles film, ya know, NDAs and all. And I'm frankly surprised so many people on this forum are just accepting Michael Bay's very vague quote about Alien Turtles at face value. The dude said Megatron wouldn't be in Revenge of the Fallen, and look what happened there. And go back and look at who made the ooze that mutated the Turtles back in the original comics (and the 2003 animated series).

    If ya want to make fun of Eastman, make fun of how shallow most of his non-TMNT comics work. And I'm not just saying this because I meet him at the Boston Comic Con earlier this year and found him to be a true gentleman.

    But Bay has never said "when I said alien turtles, I REALLY meant the OOZE was alien." You'd think with a public outcry like that, if such a thing was true he'd want to correct everybody fast.

    And no, it's not an NDA problem if the ooze has been alien before. In that case, what would they be hiding?

    Well, Bay did say that would include all the elements fans love about TMNT, so I'm thinking the planned alien origin was/is more complex can you and others are assuming.

    But in any case, with all the delays and whatnot, it might be a minor miracle if the next TMNT movie turns out to be any good. If Laird had held on to the franchise, we may have gotten a film true to the original comics. Good things have occured as part of the Nick buyout (the IDW stuff, and Laird seems to be spending more time with his family and friends), though what the new movie will be seems uncertain.

    Today, there's TWICE as much!
    http://www.platypuscomix.net/interac...everhave7.html

    Two additions. One, the Nintendo Complete Display Unit is still for sale:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-M82...item1e6f6e9406
    I hope Pat Contri (the NES Punk) manages to get it. I don't know if one of those bids is his, but he is aware this is up.

    Two, an even rarer display has been found, so rare that until now, no one knew if it even existed in the wild: the M1! The original light-up NES display from the system's launch in NYC!

    Spoiler:

    It was in a warehouse somewhere in LA. The finder plans to keep it, not sell it, though, so I didn't include this one.
