72 Nerdy Nintendo Finds

From Steampunked Game Boys to Gamer Gems

— March 28, 2010 — Tech
Though the big war for video game domination right now is between the XBox 360 and the Playstation 3, let's not forget a little company called Nintendo. Though out of the running for a few years, they are back in the limelight with the Wii and look to take the video game crown once again. I bring you these nerdy Nintendo finds to take you back to the golden age of the company, and as a promise that the second coming is not too far away. In my mind, nothing will ever beat the classic games of the 90s such as Contra, Metroid and Zelda.

Though those days are all but a memory now, hopefully these nerdy Nintendo Finds will help rekindle that love that was once so strong.
