Projecting Nostalga

No matter how advanced video game systems get, nothing will ever beat the original nintendo.

There is something about the games. Something more than nostalgia. The simplicity of the games are captivating. They are also very challenging perhaps because so many games are so damn “cheap”, frustrating and impossible to pass. For example when your character gets stuck somewhere on the screen that you can’t escape from. Or sometimes there is no way to avoid objects that harm you. Or the boss is simply impossible to pass.

Remember Contra? In my opinion the best video game ever made. Well Calgary Sound Rentals invested in a 3200 lumen projector which is available for rent now. What better way for me to test it out than to project contra across my living room wall. Never before have I experienced the game like this. I don’t have to tell you. It was amazing.

Also I was using the projector during the day. There was plenty of power and lumens to see everything clearly. Everything was sharp. Freaks and geaks had never been bigger or better.
