The most memorable thing about NAM-1975 by SNK? For me, it’s the damsel in distress. If you came to her rescue, you didn’t just free a hostage; you gained a comrade-in-arms. 🙂

I've got your female empowerment right here. ;)

There are some words you never expect to appear together in the same sentence.

I’m not sure what I find more bizarre: the U.S. being in the midst of a crime wave perpetrated by ninjas…

Drugs and ninjas everywhere. Growing up in the 80s was rough, man.

…or that Americans seem to be on a first name basis with the President of the United States.

Well, if I weren’t, then I wouldn’t have inserted those quarters, now would I?

For everyone who things that bad taste in video games is a relatively recent phenomenon, I’d like to offer you this little gem from 1982:

Behold! Wall Street by Century Electronics UK Ltd., where, among other things, you play as a pair of firemen carrying a life net...and attempt to bounce suicide jumpers into the safety of a nearby ambulance as the Dow Jones Index takes a nosedive.

"Fair princess, mine codpiece doth chafe in thy presence."

You know, I’d gladly chalk this up to an innocent misunderstanding, but given the kind of information the sequel to the above game volunteers to us about the fair Guinevere. a.k.a. Princess Prin Prin

"Canst thou convert thy measurements to the metric system?"

…I’m suddenly feeling much less generous when it comes to giving them the benefit of the doubt.

If you’re facing a giant boss in a shoot ’em up, there are many acceptable targets: head, eyes, mouth, heart, and hands, just to name a few. But there are certain lines that shouldn’t be crossed.

Don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes!

I said the eyes! THE EYES! THOSE AREN'T EYES!

There’re awkward conversation topics. And then there’re awkward conversation topics with the armless Rin Tezuka.

True friendships don't require time outs once a month.
