    Does this mean NES can finally go out drinking with his buddies? Hang on, I've got my dates mixed up.

    It means he's old enough to rent a car and drive a taxi for a job in the U.S.

    Yay NES!
     
  7. I remember first reading about the NES around this time 25 years ago in Games magazine. At the time I'd just migrated to a shiny new 8-bit Atari computer (a 600XL at that point, woohoo!) and reasoned that my computer could do so much more than a simple game system so I didn't need another game console. (I just sold off my Atari 2600 with all of my games.) I still wanted it though, mainly because of R.O.B. I had a fascination with robots (well, what kid didn't?); I would have killed for an Omnibot back then.
