Let's review a game together...
This week in 1986, the release of Gradius ushered in the era of the Konami Code, a series of button presses that would become synonymous with not just gaming on the NES, but gaming in general.
Back in January of last year, Irrational Games announced that BioShock Infinite would have a hardcore 1999 Mode, which would make players pick a specialisation that locks them into a set framework of powers and skills. There would be no going back on those choices, and death would be permanent.
You’d think that the Konami Code would be a well-known part of pop culture these days, even if you’re not a gamer. It’s everywhere.
Democratic Movement president François Bayrou may be a longshot in next week’s French presidential election, but he’s won my nonexistent vote with a secret NES-era message hidden in his official website via the Konami Code.
While Lisa’s shown that Konami’s iconic code has been to some strange places, few are as exotic as the Mushroom Kingdom, via Hyrule.
There are misdemeanours I have committed in this life, I’ll admit it. For example, I recently got a ticket for jaywalking and it cost me $US200. For jaywalking. I’m still very angry about this situation and am actively devising a plan to exact revenge on the LAPD, and guess what! Now you’re all accomplices.
