Favorite Part of the Last Issue
I’d definitely say The GameCola Interview…. c’mon, what’s not to like? It gives good tips for budding gamers, and it COULD lead to even a widdle bit of exposure on CNN (if you play your cards right Paul!!!)
‘Til next time,
Great interview with the CNN guy. Will Hugh Heffner be next?
Not sure if this is legal, but figure it’s worth a shot. MY favorite part of GameCola this month was Cheat Codes for Life, because let’s face it… I’m totally obsessed with myself.
My favorite part of this issue was the ad for game gear which probably game from GamePlayers or GamePro if I’m not mistaken. Those were good times. You guys do an excellent job with the site, keep it up.
I must have that t-shirt my favorite part about last issue was my artwork, and the button mashing potato was hillarious
Dear GameCola staff and anyone who might be reading this,
Gaaahhhh, the wooorld! I apologize most sincerely for having placed the buttons and directional pad on the incorrect sides of the controller in my “button/potato” pictures. I didn’t even realize I’d made this colossal error until I saw it again just now! This just further proves my suspicion that I am in fact a fake gamer who can’t even draw generic controllers correctly. Please accept my sincerest apologies, and don’t hate me for trying to be cool!
“…Or I’ll throw it all away!” were the last words I heard before I dropped the phone and ran out the door. Admittedly, after I got in my car, I was speeding and wasn’t even sure what for. It turns out my mother had a few synapses fizzle and spark and she was on a cleaning jag threatening to throw away a lot of my old crap that still occupied her home in boxes, boxes inappropriately labeled “Jerry’s crap.” My mother doesn’t know what’s valuable! The treasures she puts on the mantle I would just as soon display at a garage sale for a buck, or best offer, so who knows what ended up in those boxes after I moved away! Truth be told, some if it actually was crap, but I’ll be damned if I let her throw away my first and long dead Tamagotchi without my permission. I did rediscover however, a black and dusty box containing a TurboGrafx 16, a cherished console of mine until my SNES blew it out the door, or rather, off the entertainment center into its original box and into years of long, lonesome obscurity.
The whippersnappers and ragamuffins of today’s gaming probably couldn’t recognize a TurboGrafx 16 if it jumped up and spit TurboCards in their face, but there was a day I tell you, when having a TG-16 made you the coolest geek on the block, and there were even a few good games for it. I think you, Mr. Franzen, could seek out this console in one of those new-fangled computing boxes you have and play the “ROMs” in order to tell us what games are worth going back to look at. I seem to remember Neutopia, Bonk’s Adventure, Air Zonk, J.J. and Jeff, Alien’s Crush, and Devil’s Crush being worthy of hours of my time. Perhaps you could relegate an associate or minion of yours to review some of these games and let the retro gamer community, as well as the ever-growing neo-retro gamer community, know about these games so that they might enjoy and rediscover them?
Also, Happy Birthday GameCola.
