Gyromite 225/365

Gyromite came out today in 1985 so you could have tons of fun even without friends. Because you had R.O.B.; a robotic operating buddy which was what this game was all about. What's cool about this game title is that most of these came from overseas and were created for the Famicom. Nintendo decided to create converters and put them in some games. This is the one you find them in the most and you can tell because they are heavier. If you open it up and take it out you can use it for other Famicom titles you've picked up along the way.

The Adventures of Bayou Billy 224/365

Bayou Billy is one of the most iconic NES games I think. I'm not saying everyone loved it or played it even but for some reason most people owned it at some point in time. I feel like it was in buddy's basement. This phenomenon I will dub Bayou Syndrome first started today, August 12th in 1988.

Dick Tracy 223/365

This month in 1990 Dick Tracy came home in a way we were not use to. Sure he's been in comics for years and on TV but now we get to be be him by plugging into the coax cable. I'd rather watch the movie or play outside pretending I had the coolest watch ever than play this though.

Hook: The Toy Line Overview

The Hook toy line is one I played with for past the time I should have according to my Grandma, who scolded me as I made Rufio skateboard over her mantle. She may have been right since the movie was released December 11, 1991 and the toy line created by Mattel in 1992 which made me 11 and 12 for those dates. Nah, she was wrong. I still play with them.

Rad Racer 219/365

August. 1987. The 7th to be exact; is a truly special day. Rad Burst through our screens to bring home driving action that was really good. Perfect for the times in fact. It even went crazy and added 3D glasses to the mix to make sure it really did burst through your screen.

NFL 216/365

Today is the start of NFL Preseason games so I figured why not throw out this one. Originally from October of 1990 comes a wonderful game from our youth that I will never need to turn on again. Ever. Watch the Opening Titles below for memories and leave it at that.

RoadBlasters 214/365

In August of '85 we no longer had to pump those quarters into the arcade cabinet to play RoadBlasters. The thing is, we still should have. This is a fine at home driving game but it is definitely better with the wheel in your hand.
