How many of us blew into our cartridges?
Used to blow into the game cartridges when they wouldn't load. Just a quick blow phwwwoosh and then, magic! lol
But yes, everyone that I know who had an NES had to blow that freaking cart every time we had to play. Even with new games for some reason. We've also done the "wiggle", the wipedown, the cleaning cart, and also double carting, where you put the game in, press it down, and put another game above it. Seems to work 80% of the time, as opposed to the 50% blowing did.
This console is rare and I really want one!!! (and I want it to have its OWN page on this site)
also released a redesigned snes...
They do have consoles that play both NES and SNES games on the same console. All top loading. There are some that are NESOAC (NES On A Chip) and cannot play games properly (US version of SMB2). Connector wise, you won't be able to use your old skool NES controller or the Zapper.
Yeah, I'm in the market for one of those top loader NES consoles. I think one of the used game shops has one...might check them out.
There are plenty of these available online if you got the dough:
/me notices that half of the pacman intro screen is presently colored magenta / pulls cartridge, blows mightily into base, reinserts cartridge.
ah, that's better.
I also used the Game Genie to avoid the blowing (sounds so wrong haha).
But honestly like I don't see what if anything blowing on a cartridge 4000 times would do to help improve the situation, but we still did it.
