NES Released?

Hi I'm back again but not for long. No one is going to read this but if you were a friend of mine on here, you might remember that I made a post saying that I signed a petition for the NES and I wanted you guys to sign it too. Well, I thought for sure that it wasn't going to work. No one plays NES anymore and many don't even know what the hell what an NES is. Well, for those of you who play the more modern games today, the NES stands for Nintendo Entertainment System and you know how like today the format of games we play on are discs? Well the NES had none of that. They had cartridges similar to the ones we have today for 3DS and game boy except they were huge. I have no idea why the fuck I'm giving a history lesson about the NES so I'm just gonna cut to the chase. I was at Hastings last night to look for a game to rent. (Hastings by the way is just an entertainment store where they sell movies, games, music and books and stuff.) And while I was looking down at a shelf I noticed they were selling controllers. They were the type of controllers that you would not see in your local video store or gamestop today. They were NES controllers! Not only they had actual NES controllers that you would plug into your NES but they were also USB controllers. So you can use those controllers when you play on emulators or something. They even had games on cartridges. Unfortunately, they didn't have many games. They didn't even have the classics like super mario bros, or mega man or anything like that. They were mainly sports games but that's a start! But guess what? They also had Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games and controllers. Does this mean that the consoles will be released? Man I sure do hope so. 

And I'm sorry if I sound like I'm fan boying about this whole thing, but I've always wanted stores to sell classic games again. Of course theres the Nintendo E-shop on Wii U and 3DS that sells retro games but there are some people out there who collects these games and would rather have hard copies of them instead of just a file download on a console. Myself included. 

 

Well guess I will get off now. I might not be back till next year again. Take care everyone.
