Re: 2017/7/30: Intellivision: Congo Bongo

What's with the hyperlink to the Bad Monkey restaurant? :| That was kind of a random thing. I really like that restaurant in Ocean City MD and it seemed to fit. I don't have a deal with them or anything. Careful. Linking to off-topic sites can make you look like a spammer to search engines. :evil: ...

Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

Very interesting if it's truly the main reason. That would mean Nintendo would actually be frustrated by this instead of feeling clever.
