So tonight, prompted by riotdorrrk, I’m going to try and fire up a Commodore 64 emulator, and play Wasteland. While I was at it, I downloaded a few more of the C64 games from my list of sci-fi video games I haven’t yet played.
I was surfing around looking at pictures from the con (and new-to-me blogs of people who went to con), and ran into this guy Dan’s website. I used to know Dan back when I called BBSes regularly. Admittedly he was mostly just a friend of a friend, but it was a long time ago, and brought back some hazy nostalgic moments. Anyway, part of his site has this list of old NES games that have hidden (nasty) eastereggs! I wonder if you can do the nude metroid thing with the version you can unlock on the Metroid Prime disk.
Surfing around in someone else’s group of friends/links is a weird deal. I think I probably have serious voyeuristic issues here that need to be worked out.
What is it about looking at other people’s lives from the outside that makes me want to befriend them? On a probably related note, I sent a bunch of old friends emails today. Dan wasn’t even one of them. (Although I’m tempted to write and ask whatever happened to the genesis page he briefly mentions.)
