When the cartridge gave you trouble

 

 

Ah, a Nineties memory. You’re a kid, enjoying the new Super Mario game but your mum hasn’t hoovered the house in days and dust got into the cartridge. Time to pull it out again and give it a blow.

Childhood gaming

 

My first memory of a Nintendo game was in the early 1990s when my Mum’s friend’s partner brought round a game of Super Mario. We were too poor to afford our own console, so it was a great experience for me. Inspired by a conversation with my friend/colleague Sandra about our childhoods.

Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 13

 

Today’s classic GIF is Ryu from the Street Fighter games doing a trademark ‘tornado kick’. He is a bit more yellow than usual, but not probably because he has a real bad case of jaundice. The kick is also known as the Tatsumaki.
