Screw my mood swings, I'm back with a small update. On my trip to Bulgaria I picked up a few Famicom clones, the first one being exposed now. It's called Nintendo MT-999DX, yeah it's seriously called Nintendo! hehe, and it was pretty cheap too... ( check )

THE STORY OF COMPUTER GAMES
16 SEPTEMBER 2003 - 21:30 CET
On Friday 12th september, 21:00 CET, Discovery Channel (Scandinava) aired a programme called "The Story of Computer Games", a programme pretty much based on the book called Game Over, by David Sheff, who also was interviewed. The programme started with pong, then went to the Atari years (interviews with various big shot Atari guys from those days, like Nolan Bushnell and David Crane, then to the Commodore64 years (interview with the Oliver Twins and Codemasters' Darling brothers) which included my favourite game character, Dizzy, then on to the NES and Gameboy, including the story of Tetris featuring home video footage from the trip, made by Roger (forgot his last name :).

Unfortunately I have a broken VCR at the time and didn't have the chance to tape it. So I went to discovery's website to check when it would be aired next time, without much luck though. So I wrote Discovery an email, and here's their answer.
