I always like to post seasonal stuff when a holiday rolls around, but truth be told there’s nothing left to go up from GameSpite Quarterly 5 that has any relevance whatsoever to Christmas. Or Chanukah. Or, hell, Kwanzaa. So, I decided to do the next best thing and post the issue’s not-work-safe article — after all, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are always, always the lowest-traffic days of the year, and hardly anyone is at the office today. So I don’t have to worry much about work safety.
You probably shouldn’t click if your family is gathered around your computer at the moment, though. Unless your family is totally cool like that.
This is also the single most heavily researched article I wrote for GSQ5; the histories of the NES’s unlicensed publishers is well-documented by this point, but it’s scattered across the web, and I made sure to do a lot of fact-checking. I’m sure some minor error slipped through, of course. That’s just the nature of having to publish on the sly and not having a full-time staff on hand to catch mistakes. My apologies in advance.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a 3rd Birthday to celebrate.
