Gamers Futilely Shoot Duck Hunt Dog on Nintendo NES – Today in Retro Gaming – October 18th, 1985

Ah, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers- a television show that was aimed at younger viewers but still caught the eye of slightly older fans, myself included.  The show was quite different versus what else was available on that channel but just about all of television.  Brightly colored characters in spandex outfits wearing face obscuring helmets […]
