whistleridge: Do you remember the hotline you could call for in game tips? Only, they were too cheap for a 1-800 number, so you had to pay for the long distance call? Back in the 80's, when companies were trying to sell long distance for 'only' $.10/minute?
JavaMoon: Seeing all the Dragon Warrior love here just makes me so happy. I talk to others about my love for the game series and I just get blank stares.My absolute favorite Christmas was when I got my copy of Dragon Warrior 2. I think it's my favorite of the whole series./Second the Dragon Warrior > Final Fantasy comment

It took an even more inordinate chunk of my life than did beating Adventure of Link, Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!!, Kid Icarus, and Rygar (Jesus, that game took forever), but it was done. Once. By the skin of my teeth.
