Night Riots Talk Retro Video Games...in the Van




Sometimes nothing can pass the time quite like a chubby little Italian plumber with mad high jump skills and a solid mustache. The fellas and I have been very into retro video games lately. This, largely, is due to the fact that we are caged up in the van for many hours of driving. We have (Mikel and Travis can take most credit for this) installed an extra car battery that powers video games from a little flip down TV inside the van. Let's take a moment to give a little more credit to this battery before I move on because this lil dude hooks us up with all kinds of electronic goodness by keeping our phones charged, crock pots (this is not exactly safe to do while driving, don't do this) cooking, and laptops running.





Thank you good sir extra van battery.

Super Mario 3, Donkey Kong Country 2, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are just a few of the games that have been most popular in the van lately. I remember a particularly long ride from Colorado to California a couple weeks ago in which Nick and Travis set out on the insurmountable mission to beat the TMNT game from the original Nintendo. Please do yourself a favor and never ever ever ever ever play that game. It is a torturous device that should only be used to torment people that club baby seals. Despite having the odds stacked against them Travis and Nick gloriously defeated the evil Shredder as our van rolled through the deserts of Nevada somewhere near Las Vegas. I shed a single tear of joy. 





If the picture looks familiar, I'm sorry.

Next time we see you feel free to challenge us to a duel in a classic game of your choosing but be warned, if we can beat Shredder we can most definitely defeat you!
