Google Searchs

I have noticed how much of a pain in the ass it is anymore to find anything on the internet these days without a pay - to - use site blocking your way to find what you want. Latly I have been trying to find some emulators to download due to the falling amount of money I have due to fuel. Anyways it seems like no matter where you turn there was sites who wanted up to $50 to download a game that doesn't cost that much on the original platform, that I am not forced to play in a terrible computer screen. Finally after much hosing and searching I finally found what I was looking for and some more. It seems as if Nintendo is screwing over the public once more with the protecting and sueing of people who put out copies of their mario games, even though they are expired, and almost impossible to get anymore. For example; Mario brothers 3. Originally made for the NES, was placed under the protection thingy due to the fact that it was released in the GBA platform. However once you go looking for the game in the real world they are asking for more than $45 for the damned thing that they figured that people whould really enjoy it on a 2" screen. Bah. Now that I finally broke down and let Bennett buy a gamecube (even though I thought of buying it after paying off the credit card bill) I find out that those butt wipes of nintendo has discontinued the gameboy pplayer adaption so that one can play the gameboy games on screen to make room for their new hardware. Unless that new hardware features the fact that you can play gameboy games on the television screen why on gamers green earth would they discontinue such an item on a console that is still on the market? (Ever seen the gamecube games? They are small)
I am sick and tired of seeing things I want and they never come to fruit. Like the revolution. Some say that it is the wii, others say they discontinued it before it came out due to lack of interest. I'm not sure which is true but I have something to say for both. 1. Renamed to wii: Nintendo already spent huge mony in advertising of the revolution. Why would they change the name to wii? Already I have seen the wii controller and the revolution controller, they do not look even remotly the same. 2. Disinterest from the public: There is millions upon millions of old nintendo games without a platform to be played upon due to hardware crashes accidents and other things that life sends our ways. Many of us would still buy the old nintendo cartridges if there was something that we could play these pieces of nastalgia. Personally I am still looking for consoles and will forever be on the hunt, for there are games out there that I would love to play. The revolution sounded like the cheapest and most easiest way for that to happen, also would allow nintendo to produce some of their older cartridge games once more and they would be brand new to the new generation of gamers. I gave Kim a emulated version of Mario Kart and she played for hours, since it was a new game for her, never seen before. It would make the company more than enough money without producing any r&d into their games. History was the R&D! True one has to minus the already game sales but some of those who were produced has crashed and therefore not usable and if people bought them then and played them until they died due to wear I think they might buy them again, wouldn't you?

Either way I am still waiting and watching. I saw a brand new NES system never out of the box with the gray gun at the Otafest last year. Maybe sometime soon I might be able to get my hands on the things I want and then I would have to have a house with a custom game room that will have enough power so that I don't blow breakers, switch power cords or anything like that to run my multiple vcrs, betas, nintendos, n64s, gamecube, television, stereo equipment, dvd players, dvd burner, ps, ps2s....Yes there is multiples of the ones with s's behind them....So sue me I like stuff, and I'm a good shopper so most of the stuff came to me almost or free...

It is pretty lame, you have to pay for EVERYTHING these days. MSN, you have to pay for the special emoticons and everything. Honestly, I wonder how many people waste their time on that crap.

I hope the new Nintendo comes out soon, and it will support all of the old cartridges. I got an SNES the other day, it it works great. :)
