Years ago my parents took me over the niagara falls Ontario to niagara falls new York border and at some place bought is a 72-in-1 cart for the nintendo.
It was in retrospect a pretty great buy compared to the crap I see now. It's games were mostly real titles with some strange ones like Lunar Pool and the tengen tetris as well as the complete donkey kong trilogy.
But does anyone remember how the big n used their magazine nintendo power to create fear of these carts?
I can remember in the back a small 2inch x 3 inch blurb that warned that these carts would damage the nes control deck and they actually went far enough to claim that the flashing light error was due to these unauthorized carts somehow damaging the console.
Makes me wonder how much my parents paid for the cart and how much it must have been hurting nintendo at the time to publish these articles in their propaganda magazine.
I never bought it and played my 72-in-1 all the time.
I loved nintendo all the way up to the gamecube (bought it on day one!) but after my xbox and halo started to get more attention, I had graduated from
Nintendo and unfortunately have not really gone back since.
