Hitler wants to try out Kinect, learns he can’t, and then gets the RROD. Ain’t that fantastic? Take that, sucker.

Wow, this blog is almost dead! I don’t know if there’s still anyone reading, but whatever… I just found out these hilarious Hitler parodies about Kinect and the Red Ring of Death and thought it’d be nice to share them. Of course it’s less tasty (and a bit weird) if you actually understand German. But even if you do, that’s worth the watch.

So Hitler is a casual gamer. If you’re unfit and have shitty videogame taste, then you’re probably a lot like him:

My own rant about Kinect here. Guess what, this is probably not the last one. 😛

Now Hitlah gets the infamous RROD (sorry, but you deserved it dude!):

Yeah, Hitler’s life sucks.

I personally never encountered any problem with the RROD, since the Xbox 360 we have at home is the new Slim model (ya know, the one that proudly claims “Kinect Ready” on the box…), which apparently doesn’t do it anymore. Glad they fixed it. Today’s systems should really be as reliable as the old ones, otherwise it’s not serious… Come on Microsoft, my Atari 2600 and Sega Master System still work perfect after 30 and 25 years so what’s the problem with you? And that goes for you too Sony fuckers, like you’re not ashamed to ask as much as $150 to fix that annoying YLOD you are responsible for? At least Microsoft offers a good customer service, they fix it for free. Dammit.

So, no RROD so far but quite unsurprisingly, most of my NESes do the Red Blink of Death. One of them recently recovered from it, and I got another one that should work, although it’s still dismantled right now -need to paint the chassis and change the LED before being able to try it out. Yup, it will be a custom NES! That’s all I can say at the moment, but I’m eager to complete this project and maybe make a tutorial about it. More news soon.

Last note: I know I’ve been writing a lot for Soru’s Den lately, but I’m likely to post more often on NC in the future, so stay tuned! 8)

Now this is a really scary NES…

What do you think about this NES mod? The doll bust looks sort of creepy with her blank expression and all these cables (I think they’re linked to the top of her head). Sadly I don’t know who made this, but it rocks -although it’s nothing I haven’t seen before, seeing this concept adapted to an NES is weird enough to simply make me love this.

Priceless Duck Hunt glitch

As annoying as the hyper-sensitive NES pin connector may be, some glitches are really fun. I came across this priceless one on this page. Of course these glitches are real, and were also featured in the awesome AVGN glitches video -you should watch it if you haven’t already!


Displaying FUCK instead of DUCK… What the duck?


The more HIV you get, the more you are a good Fuck Hunter.

I’ll give you my best advice: if Duck Hunt offers you to go for a fuck, your cartridge probably needs a good cleaning.

Good ol’ NES is not dead…

So, I finally couldn’t resist and placed my order on Retrozone. Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril and Mystic Pillars shall be mine in no time! Bwahaha!


Brand new NES carts in 2010. It’s, like, heaven.

Both of these brand new, original NES games were developed by one-man team Sivak Games. This genius does everything, from graphics and music to assembler programming. Holy shit, I’d sure like to be able to do that! 8)

Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril happens to be the first platform game to be released on the NES in 15 years, and seems pretty much similar to Megaman in many ways. Not bad, huh? This ambitious game includes over 550 rooms, 30 enemy types, 8 bosses and lets you choose between 5 difficulty levels. No less.
Battle Kid was sold out shortly after its release a few months ago. Now that it’s available again on Retrozone, I wasn’t gonna let it go.

Mystic Pillars was made by the same guy, and it’s a Tetris-like. Oh geez, I LOVE Tetris! According to the preview, the game looks pretty nice and colorful and just like the original Tetris, it features custom difficulty settings and music themes. Looks awesome so far, can’t wait to play.

I had originally no intention of purchasing anything else than Battle Kid, but as I was checking their other games Mystic Pillars caught my attention. Because it was a Tetris-like! Not to mention it was made by Sivak too, and seemed real fun. Shipping remained the same whether I was buying it or not anyway. Sigh, shipping overseas is *so* expensive.

* hope my NES works hope my NES works hope my NES works *

The Battle of Olympus, a classic on the NES

This game is in my wantlist. The gameplay and graphics kinda remind me of Zelda 2, and it’s probably as frustrating because for what I remember it was really hard… it was a great game nonetheless. I can’t wait for the day when I can play it again.
