King of Kong Arcade closes shop. Princess not Saved.

Category: Who Are We? Comments: No comments

Just under three years ago Billy Mitchell of King of Kong fame opened his very own “King of Kong” arcade at Orlando International Airport in Orlando, Florida.

I even visited it two years ago! Here I am with all its bright lights and glory.

Today it is with a heavy heart I report that this arcade has closed shop. From the looks of it this was a pretty recent move out, as you can see remnants of the arcade.

You will be missed!

Brother Nights Tours – Famicom Disk System

Category: Tours Comments: One comment

If you’ve ever played Castlevania on NES and wondered why it’s so hard, this post is for you.
It’s because the Japanese version HAD A SAVE FEATURE that was removed!

But that’s what happens when you take a game developed to play from a disk and port it to a cartridge.

So here we have the Famicom Disk System!

This expansion to the Famicom (NES) was actually the system that some of gaming’s biggest franchises debuted on:

The Legend of Zelda
Metroid
Castlevania

One of the most fascinating things about this system was the availabilty of games. You were able to purchase them from

copies it right to it! It was a very clever way to get new games into the hands of Japanese game...

The Super Mario Bros 2 we know and love was not originally a Mario game. In Japan it’s known as Doki Doki Panic,
and it’s the same gameplay but with an Arabian theme and characters.

There WAS a Super Mario Bros 2, but it was wickedly hard. So hard that Nintendo decided Mario’s new fans over here
might quickly decide they hate him if they played the proper sequel.

So they made a choice to ‘re skin’ Doki Doki Panic with Mario characters and release it here. To explain the complete
absurdity of the world, they added a dream storyline.

What was the original like? Mean. Poison Mushrooms were added to the question blocks, so you could no longer just blindly
jump ...
