    Remember StarTropics for NES? I loved that game.
    Also remember Nintendo Power magazine?... and those who signed up for a subscription and got Dragon Warrior III in the mail? lol

    Also Pitfall was the shiz. Megaman 3 was my favorite pretty sure.

    I remember StarTropics but I didn't play it much. I also had a subscription to Nintendo Power for a long time...much longer than I'd care to admit.

    Megaman was too hard for me. :p

    When I went to college at the University of Wyoming in 1997, I walked into the Liquor store and found a twelve pack of .45 for $3.99, it was a dollar more than a 12-pack of soda at the grocery store! I bought like 4 cases of the stuff.

    After that I got the nickname Captain Schlitz for some reason. :)

    S&F,

    You mean it wasn't the "New Coke" and actually contained real sugar :) Joking aside, here in Texas you can still buy "Mexican" Coke which contains real sugar cane...yummy!
