Up Up Down Down B A B A Start

That's right -- it's the cheat code for Contra. Some things just never leave you.

If you miss old school Nintendo, now you can have it -- on your PC. And I'm not just talking Mario on your computer screen -- I'm talking the whole experience, complete with the game controller.

RetroZone is offering USB Nintendo controllers for just $30:

"Classic NES controller upgraded to USB. Authentic gameplay unmatched with other controllers. No adapters needed, just plug and play!"

And what about the actual Nintendo games for your PC? You can download most of them as freeware or shareware online, including the site here -- or buy a whole bunch of them here.

Breakfast in the Bachelor Pad

I came across a fantastic bachelor gift on the Uncrate blog today:

The 3-In-1 Breakfast Maker combines a toaster oven, a coffee maker, and a frying pan> Gadgety, economical (both in space and on the wallet), and built to satisfy a man's appetite -- what more could a guy want?

This would also make a unique graduation gift (hey, aren't high school graduations right around the corner?) or a great present for any college student or newly independent young adult (especially one living in a little apartment or otherwise cramped quarters).

The 3-in-1 Breakfast Maker retails for $40 and is available from Clever Gear. - Blog Directory
