I finally got my rig set up to start recording some games. I plan to make this a more regular segment.
Welcome to: Norrin_Radd Plays!
Todays game is Super Dyna'Mix Badminton for the 8-bit NES (Famicom). This is a game that I have been fiendishly practicing since back in the days when Nesticle was the only name in NES emulation.
Years ago, I managed to order a copy of it off of eBay so I could play it in real life. But I still needed to find one of those Famicom converter double ended carts to actually play it in my Western NES. For this video though, I am using an emulator and a USB SNES controller. Good enough.
The reason I wanted to make this video, outside of loving this game and wanting to share why with all of you lovely people. No, I had an additional motive.
The Rio 2016 Olympics!
There is a semifinals match happening Friday the 19th at 4:30am that will be beyond epic, and is something I encourage all of you to check out, if not live, then certainly after the fact. But the reason for why this match will be so epic and iconic is all explained in the first segment of this video.
So, join me as I hype up this legendary badminton match, and learn about why this is one of my favourite sports games of all time, and a real desert island kind of game.
