Over on my facebook & twitter, I like to post ads I scan from old comic books and magazines. I figured I'd start sharing some of them here!

Here's the first for NES Sports Games by Konami!

Lazer Tag 
I really like the design of the gun and think it still looks futuristic even today. Too bad it didn't work with my Atari 7800!

I have a few of those now.  I can attest that they are all terrible.  Especially those ones with a "dome". 

I was curious how the dome ones worked, lol.

I should send you one of those for a review because it's a terrible design.  The dome kind of tips just a little in each direction.  You expect it to kind of "roll".  I can't think of a single game that this would work for.  It's just too slow and cumbersome.  It makes you question whether anyone at Quickshot ever tried their own device.  As AVGN would say:  WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

 Wow, that does sound bad! At first I thought they were some sort of trakball. That would've been interesting!

Thrashin' on Videocassette.

I've never seen it, but I'm guessing it's pretty rad...

It's supposed to be pretty rad -- looks like Tony Hawk and other boarders are in it. I haven't watched it, but I remember the seeing the cover of the box back in the 80s, very iconic poster. I didn't know that Josh Brolin was in it.

Acclaim Remote Controller
There is a ton of fun, craziness in this ad, from the kid calling it the Acclaim Remote (not the name) to the wrestlers being true giants. And who needs Airwolf's awesome weapons when you have this remote to shoot out the window!
