Back in the days when I was Young…

Super Mario Bros.

“Back in the days when I was young I’m not a kid anymore But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again Back in the days when I was young I’m not a kid anymore But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again Back in the day”.  As you can see Retro is in, lil’ Revamped but I’m not complaining … Speak on it People!! share your Back in the Dayz toys, board games & collectables.

If you put your hand far enough into the crack of your couch in the basement you’re likely to find an old SNES game cartridge… reach a little further and out comes a pop rock encrusted NES cartridge. Problem is, no matter how far you burrow, you’ll never come up with a full Nintendo classic game system… and you’ll never ever find a system that plays both NES and SNES games. Well luckily the Retro Duo NES/SNES Game System is here to solve all your 8 and 16 bit gaming needs. Two top loading cartridge slots, one for NES the other for SNES, ensure full compatibility with all your old games… and it’s completely couch lint free! Controllers are included of course, or you can plug in your own original SNES controllers for 100% accurate gaming nostalgia.

There are some game combinations that would never fly in the world marketplace.

Some examples: “It’s just like BINGO meets Space Invaders!”, “Think of Scrabble, and then add Master Chief.” or “It’s like RISK meets Clue. Germany, in the Black Sea, with the pipe.”

But when we found this, it was a total peanut butter cup moment: the perfect marriage between two totally awesome things. These geniuses have brought you Jenga, the classic tower game combined with Donkey Kong, the classic climb-a-tower-rescue-a-girl game. Could this get any more perfect? Oh, it can. It can be played in classic Jenga mode or you can whip out the Donkey Kong rules and race your Mario to the top of the tower to rescue Pauline before the structure collapses to the ground.

Sometimes you don’t mess with success. In the age of giant Atari joysticks the original D-Pad controller represented a streamlined approach to gaming input devices never seen before. The lowly “plus” has stood the test of time making it’s way into many modern controllers. In an era of gaming controllers with dual analog sticks, motion sensing and six triggers, sometimes the simple digital precision of 8 cardinal directions is exactly what the doctor ordered.

The Retro NES USB Controller is perfect for creating old skool gaming nostalgia on your laptop. The standard NES plug has been replaced with newfangled USB. Hey, we wouldn’t recommend it for FPS shooters but it’s ideal for MAME and NES emulators.
