    Coolness. What is it with them making guns that shoot lions, anyways? :p 

    Didn't Ninty start out as a playing card manufacturer in the 1800's?

    Right on, Fusajiro Yamauchi established the Marufuku Co. to make and distribute Hanafuda cards in 1889.

    He changed the name to Nintendo (a term meaning "Leave luck to heaven") in 1951. Nintendo didn't release it's first home game til 1977, the same year Miyamoto joined the company.

    ....what? I read "The Ultimate History of Video Games"....stop looking at me, I know I'm a geek!

    Awesome find btw. Some of those old games were made into mini-games in Wario Ware.

    The question is, did you have to look any of this up (especially spellings!) in that fancy word book of yours or did you just spew it all out from the top of your head? I could hazard a guess... and it scares me...

    Ah, just think, we could of had a Super Marufuku Entertainment System...

    the lion one is the only one that is odd to you?

    the one that scares me is the Lover Tester thing with the 2 balls! that is so creepy.
