  1. The Famicom Disk System

    One of the things that made getting a Famicom attractive instead of an NES was its magical, mythical add-on, the Famicom Disk System. Like its successors, the PC Engine CD, the Mega CD, and the Nintendo 64DD, the FDS was originally an attachment that added additional storage and other benefits to proprietary games.

  4. In the Mouth of Radness

    The last few years have been a bit of a blur. Playing with your perception of reality can do that to a person. So here I am, older, wiser and concerned about how I spend my free time. I love a good video game every now and then but I also love having a place to live and a bed to share and good coffee to start every morning. Glancing at an issue of EGM or Play will always bring a rush of memories. The squandered paychecks and the joy of unwrapping a fresh new game. Inhaling the new plastic smell ...
