The other side of the coin

Regardless of my general ambivalence toward emulation, I won’t deny it has its merits. For instance, if it weren’t for emulation, I wouldn’t be able to show you the single most ’80s title screen ever:

I don’t think I ever had the pleasure of seeing this game in the stores. I’m pretty sure I would remember if I had, because based on the geometric shapes and New Kids On The Block typography, it was obviously sold in a set with a Trapper Keeper.

  1. makes me want to jam out to kid’n’play on MTV’s The Grind while sipping on crystal pepsi in my hypercolor t-shit. Rico Suave, dudes.

  2. Isn’t there a thread in the forums right now about what Jerry is doing with his sunglasses there?

    What a trend setter.

  3. Man, I was just getting ready to start a Trapper Keeper thread.

    Now it’ll just look (more) lame. =(

  4. “That eighties style” actually has a name called The Memphis school of design! That’s useful knowledge, right?

  5. I used to know it was called Memphis, but I blocked it out.

    Tuffy is the Scrappy-Doo of Tom and Jerry.

  6. Was Tuffy the mouse with the bowler hat and baggy sleeved shirt? He was better than scrappy, at least he wasn’t so talkative. The episodes with him basically consisted of Tuffy beating the crap out of Tom with his bare hands.

  7. Oh, so Tuffy is his name. That damn little gray mouse. My favorite Tom and Jerry short happens to be the “The Two Mouseketeers”, actually. Love that ‘toon!

  8. Huh, I just realized that Tom and Jerry are in front of a pink triangle, there. That really implies a new dynamic to their relationship that has almost certainly never been explored outside of some of USENET’s seedier corners.
