I’ve forgotten more things in my life than I’d like to admit, but I remembered there was a turkey leg hidden in that wall in Castlevania for NES while playing it in OpenEmu1. Good to see where my brain’s priorities are.

  1. OpenEmu’s website is really nice, as is the app itself. 

Turkey is necessary to kill Dracula.

(Also, this game used to scare the shit out of me.)

So, dear readers, all signs point to no: blowing in the cartridge did not help. My money is on the blowing thing being a pure placebo, offering the user just another chance at getting a good connection. The problems with Nintendo’s connector system are well-documented, and most of them are mechanical — they just wore out faster than expected.

So much oxygen wasted in my youth…
