Wait. Didn't I see this on Facebook as a group?
Yeah, I just joined! lol.
Um, I blew on my old NES games to make them work. End of story for everyone.
I saw a shirt that had a game cartridge that said "Blow me" on it once...
And you thought making a thread on it was a good idea? You've been drinking again, haven't you?
I recently replaced the pin connectors on my childhood NES system.
Man ... I'm not sure what's worse, 1987's "blowing" or modern day's RRoD.
I played on my buddies NES about the same time period as Pokemon Blue came out and we were playing a Mickey platformer and the grapics got all gargled up and he said "It's okay just take it out and blow on it" that was the first time I ever heard of this phenomenon. I thought a missingno attacked the screen...I was like 8....
BTW please limit the sex jokes on this one...
RRoD isn't to bad. At least the Xbox works for several weeks before breaking.... On the Damn NES, by the time Mario Bros 3 worked, I was out of breath. Oh and if you wanna switch games, get ready to blow again.
Dammit, yes, but it gets more complicating and intriguing then just blowing...you have to jiggle the sides from side to side sometimes...
Wait, I guess since the internet wasn't around back then, there was no way of sharing that there were other solutions outside of the performing oral sex on your cartridges. If you stuck a folder piece of cardboard on the top of the NES game, after pushing it down, this solves almost 90% of the blowjob cases, not to mention prevent what happened to me once from happening to you....
First time I beat Zelda one, right before the ending started, my cousin jumped off his top bunk to go to the restroom. He landed with such a strong thump, that it literally made the NES game pop up from the "down" position in the old NES system. We had to go through the entire last dungeon again.
Well all it ever was about was clearing the contacts, and since most of use didn't have some alcohol solution and q-tips readily available blowing was the next best option.
I always wondered what would have happened if Superman had a Super nintendo, with his super breath and all.
Superman: "Damn SNES, work damn you, work!"
Kid: "Just blow on the cartridge Superman"
Kid: "AAAHH...Somebody call 911, my head is now a toploader!!"
Ah the joy of being awake before 5am my mind is buzzing with random crap
In Soviet Russia vidya games blow on you.
ah yes i remember having to do this, had to do it way too many times
Stupid kids and their fancy instant-load cartridges. PROPER games come on cassettes.
*waits for "the adjusting volume levels so the tape loads" thread*
