Hello Readers! This is your guest blogger Chris here to share that unique "manly" perspective, this time on juvenile electronic entertainment. Recently, I have had a yearning to play my Nintendo that I have had since I was a kid. I've been adding to my game collection over the past few years, purchasing them at stores here and there. Unfortunately, I haven't able to track down all of the cords for my system to work. I would need to dig through our storage unit and find the cords if I wanted to play. That got me down - until today!
This morning, at an undisclosed resale store here in the Pacific Northwest, I found a Zapper gun for Nintendo. The girl in the store knew I meant business when she asked if I was going to go Duck Hunting. Soon enough, I thought.
Just an hour later at a different undisclosed retail store here in the Pacific Northwest, I found the ultimate - a complete Nintendo System with two game controllers, the much needed AC adapter that I was missing, video cords, Zapper gun, and Super Mario Brothers / Duck Hunt! I also snagged a couple of other games including Super Mario Brothers 2, Super Mario Brothers 3, and Q*bert! I couldn't believe my luck!
When I asked the store attendant if the game system had been tested he said, "Oh yeah. I'm in charge of testing the electronics. In fact, a bunch of us were just in back playing Duck Hunt."
Here are a few photos of my loot to share with you.
Now if I can just get my hands (pun may or may not be intended) on a sweet Power Glove!
