Funny, in Kansas – I played Nintendo Wii when it came out. Fally had some rockin’ game nights at her house in Lawrence. Wario Bros ruled!
Here in Cali, we kicked it old school with an Atari Game Night at the Davis Public Library.
Bring on the 8-Bit Gaming Good Times! It was so cool to see gaming fans, young and old, play the OG versions of Frogger, Mario Bros and Centipede. I’m thankful I got to use the “roller” controller for Centipede. The joystick was hell on shooting down the roaming bugs!
I stumbled on this 1988 Inside Edition Report on Super Mario Bros via Laughing Squid. Imagine O’Reilly with hair! I wonder what he really thought about the Japanese video game hype.
Back in Davis – Metal on Metal Action.
This is part of the FIRST Robot Competition at UC Davis. It was exciting to see so many teens excited about robots. Mark pointed out some impressive sponsors for the event – NASA, Google, etc.
