One if not THEE sickest video game accessories ever created. Its also one of the worst functioning game accessories ever created as well. It’s appearance in the movie The Wizard added to its hype but regardless of its appearance it still would have been highly sought after.
I remember the first time I actually used the Power Glove, it was late 1989. A friend of mine received it as a birthday present and I sprinted around the block to try this thing out. The first game I ever used the Power Glove to play was Nintendo’s Pinball. Ok so when I get to my friends house he’s already got the glove on and in action, after a few requests he hands the Glove over to me and the frustration begins. Sure, having this dope looking glove on your hand looked like fun but it soon became a monster headache. The Glove never quite did what you wanted it too and usually made playing a game much more of a pain in the $%%. Between plugging in codes for different games and not being able to fluidly execute certain commands it took all of 10 minutes into my experience with The Power Glove to willfully hand it back over and just stare in awe at its design (which is really where the draw of owning this thing begins and ends). In the market to add one to your collection? Get ready, prices range from $60-200 USD. Check out the original commercial below and the original ad above.
Imagine, its 1991. You walk into your local arcade and along side games like pole position and Pit Fighter is Sega’s Time Traveler, a 3-D game that cost a whopping 1 dollar to play. Your mind is blown away instantly, that was, until you realized this game could cost you your entire stash of quarters to fully experience it. Unfortunately there aren’t many arcades still out there so your chances of experiencing this game yourself is slim, but if you have the funds you can buy the Sega Time Traveler Arcade Game on eBay.
Nintendo’s Pro Wrestling was one of my favorite games for the NES. My friends and I spent many hours beating the crap out of each other on rainy days thanks to a decent selection of interesting characters. Whether you used Amazon to munch on your opponent or clawed your opponent in the face with Great Puma it didn’t matter you were having fun. The only problem? When your buddy was getting his assed handed to him it was all to easy to “accidentally” make enough movement so that your game would freeze or shut off all together. Yup, life in the 80′s was great. Check out some of the action below!
Have you ever wondered what type of kicks Dracula would rock? Well, Nintendo & Parker Brothers already have an answer. Apparently, Dracula would be sporting some fresh Reebok Twilight Zone Pumps as is apparent for the cover for Dracs Night Out. For those that don’t know, Drac’s Night Out is an unreleased Nintendo game from around 1990-1991. Throughout the game Dracula is sporting these timeless classics all while sucking the blood of innocent villagers. Although the game was scrapped you can order a reproduction through nesreproductions.com Check out out some of the game below and make sure to check out the cover above of Dracula sporting some Reebok heat!
