Welcome to Warp Zone Old

A couple of weeks ago, I ordered a refurbished the old mid-80’s Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and enjoyed the hell out of it for about a week. I played Super Mario and Metroid nonstop, and was amazed at how much I actually remembered in Mario — which tubes to go down, which bricks are the “mega-coins” as we used to call them, where to press B to go super fast, and how to skip forward to Level 8 and rescue the Princess in less than 10 minutes. But after a couple of days, the lure wore off, I got bored, and thought of ordering some more games, but for now, I’ll just keep it on hand when I host my 30-year high school reunion.
