A few months ago there was a list of links to classic video game emulators posted.
Very recently, I'm pleased to report, those links all came true
. The Internet Archive bespoke upon aforementioned consoles, computers, and mileposts on our way to the tech utopia of today, (seriously, where's my flying car?) and they asked us to do something: Imagine every computer that ever existed, literally, in your browser
. And it was so.
I have absolutely no affiliation with jscott
, btw. Thought I should disclose that.

... Solid NES Gold
. Those who remember the game
do so with fondness
. Though critically lauded
on release, and later spawning several sequels
, the game was never as big a hit as its its spiritual predecessors, Metroid and Legend of Zelda. Like Super Mario Bros. 2/Doki Doki Panic
, Blaster Master was based on an obscure Japanese game, in this case Chōwakuseisenki Metafight
although the differences in this case are limited to the story. Blaster Master was also the first (and only "canon") book in the Nintendo Worlds of Power series,
in which various authors novelized third-party games
using the pseudonym "F.X. Nine." Download the Blaster Master book here
(MSWord zipped, "enhanced" by a fan). Lastly, some bonus links: one
, and three (!)

"My name is Gudo Wafu Nishijima, a Buddist Monk, who is 86 years old, and recently because of my old age, I finished my Buddhist lectures, which were held at many places for many years, and so I decided to open Dogen Sangha Blog
, to express the Buddhist thought. It might be very short sentences, but I would like to continue it as far as possible almost every day."

Buddhist group. Learn from his video, How to Practice Zazen
, or read some of Nishijima Roshi's lectures and articles
