Retro Game Day
A small but enthusiastic group met today to enjoy some oldies but goodies on the NES and N64. I thought we had an Atari coming, which would have been very cool, but that person was a no-show. Thanks Ameer, for bringing in the second N64. I didn't get any pictures today, because with the group being small and everything open play, I actually played some games and a little Nerf ping pong and never got around to the camera. We originally hooked the NES up to the projector on the big screen, mostly because I wanted to play Duck Hunt on the big screen. A word of warning to anyone else who may be thinking of doing that... no can do. The NES works just fine, but the guns don't work with a projector screen. The signal needs to bounce off the TV screen and back to the gun. Fortunately that realization came to me relatively quickly and we swapped out one of the N64s. Good thing, since Duck Hunt was probably the most used game of the day. It was a lot of fun!
