Retro Games Round-up + how to make your own Zelda.
So we had a Retro Games Arcade event last Friday that was pretty sweet. Even a Virtual Boy was there; he had, um, a really good personality, that nice boy. Also, the Vectrex caught my eye — it had one of those extremely convenient and easy-to-use multi-games-in-one cartridges, where you had to switch the pins on the circuit board to choose which game to play. You have to see these vector CRT games in-person, the brightness is so intense, and it just makes you realize how LCD screens are destroying America.
Sometimes I miss the weight and feel of game cartridges… as I walk the mean streets with my Walkman, saying “23 skidoo” to hoodlums and whippersnappers. Beef, it’s what’s for dinner! Let’s watch M*A*S*H!
More importantly, I’m writing this post to tell you something extremely important: you can make Zelda mods and new levels for the original Legend of Zelda.TIGSource has the scoop on “Zelda Classic” and its bevy of custom dungeons and stuff.
