I notice the site is called "sydlexia.com" in my browser. I think you mean "dyslexia.com". You're welcome.

If I am absolutely flummoxed, I may delve into the game's instruction manual, but other than that, it will be as if it is 1987 again and I am a drooling preschooler who just got this game from his parents.

No. It's 1986. Google it.

No, it's Tony, the ghost from the junkyard who isn't a douche, who touches the car and has his hand go through it. Watch the first minute and 15 seconds:

I figured Tony wouldn't have been startled, seeing as he was a ghost, and Justin would've, seeing as he wasn't. Also, 1986 was Metroid's original Japanese release date, but came to the west the following year, same as with The Legend Of Zelda and Kid Icarus.

Upon further review you're right on Metroid. Several prominent sites, including GameFAQS, incorrectly list the US release date as August 1986.

In the Nintendo GamePaks article:

"Much to our dismay, the girl at the counter had absolutely no idea what the fuck we talking about."

Believe it's supposed to say "what the fuck we were talking about."

Same article.

In this life, it is often claimed that one should always be thorough. When you act hastily, or based upon unqualified assumptions, the common wisdom is that you are setting yourself up for immolation, or some other form of cataclysmic failure. So, don't your chickens before they hatch.

No, I was rewriting and I screwed up. Originally it said "denounced" instead of "advocated", but I wanted to vary my word usage, so I tried to change it to "attacked". Instead, I somehow typed "advocated".

Yeah, the first one was totally on purpose.

Also, I am aware that exclusionatory is not a real word, before anyone says anything.

50 NES Quotes Every Gamer Should Know:
Quote:
And no matter how fast you mashed the start button to get to the title screen, you'd always see that date flash on the screen before your request to skip the opening story seqence was accepted.

Obvious error aside, there's actually a small window between the logo screen and the beginning of the story where, if you press start, you skip the latter in its entirety.
