When your childhood toys have become “retro” does that mean you are getting old?
The fine folks at Messiah Entertainment have apparently stolen my very thoughts and created a gaming masterpiece. The Generation NEX Nintendo takes both NES and Famicom cartridges. The form factor is much more slim than either the original NES or Famicom. Then, as if allowing me to play NARC again in peace without having to blow into my cartridge and perform strange ritual sacrifice wasn’t enough, they have included 2.4gHz wireless for the controllers.
I don’t normally get hyped up about rehashed game systems, but when a company takes a system that plays my favorite games of all time and makes it even better, I have to take notice.
I’m off to go find all my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle games and see if I qualify for the Senior Citizen discount at Wal-Mart.
Available from Messiah for $60 in September.
