GET TO WORK, GAMERS!

Gaming in the 90s was totally cool. Cargo pants!



Looks like somebody's been studying the Teen Biz guide to successful slang.

@anon

were you NOT around for the whole SNES v Genesis thing? Many punches were thrown on many playgrounds over it.

This is what we were forced to watch before Attack of the Show! came along, kids. Respect your elders!

Sean Aram Gordon said...

Why was Mario Zeldenstein reading a code for a Playstation game?


And Attack of The Show is equally obnoxious. I can't watch that for more than 2 minutes.

Heather said...

I didn't quite catch that last code there...

Also, couldn't they at least have pretended that their mugs had something in them?

Back when I had a Nintendo Power subscription, I remember being overwhelmed with excitement when one of these videos was mailed to my house.

I distinctly remember the male announcer shouting at the top of his lungs into the camera about how great "Jet Force Gemini" was.

I bet she snickers every time a guy asks, "What's the G?"

I would like to be as cool as the one who hangs out with DK all the time. I've got Jello Biafra posters all over my room.

I miss my green cargo pants.

Nintendo approved cargo shorts.

Sweet!

P.s. Listen to Desuko kids, he speaks the truth.

I really like her shirt. That is all.

They had the 1990s in America, too?

I swear the ass-hat in the maroon shirt that shows up @1:07 in the video, is Kenneth from 30 Rock

So I'm pretty sure that I need my boyfriend to get a pair of Derek's shoes or I might not be attracted to him anymore.

WOOOO!

Marian Kahn said...

oh wow, I remember those pixelated photo-realistic shirts.

ESCARGOT PANTS.

Was anyone else overcome by the urge to punch the guy in the yellow shirt?

At the title screen, BEFORE the logo fades in but AFTER the theme music starts but BEFORE the menu pops up, enter X, Triangle, Square, Square, Triangle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, L2, R2, D2, Down, Up, Left, Right, A, B, I, D, D, Q, D, spin the D-pad 720 degrees clockwise, then 360 degrees counter-clockwise, and you should hear a faint chime (the theme music is really loud here, so listen closely!), and then start a new game.

If you entered the code correctly, Big Head Mode will be enabled! Oh, the novelty!

Holy hand grenade. I remember that over enthusiastic schmuck from those Nintendo Power video's. I couldn't wait for Jet Force Gemini, so I watched that video maybe 5 times. I can't believe I subjected myself to that nonsense.
