The Grey Elephant's Curse : famicom pirates in russia

Post#1 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 9:02 am

The Grey Elephant's Curse (with English subtitles)

This movie tells a story about 8-bit gaming era in Russia's 90s. Remember AVGN's reviews revealing the dark side of video game industry in the USA?
Well, the stories he told are no match to what a typical Russian gamer had to face then, a long time ago. No Nintendo tech support, no official N distributing, just a vast wild piracy market, divided into elephant-faced "official piracy" and "pirate piracy" . Hardware problems, software glitches, the trademark "Made-in-China" quality. That time, even cheatbooks lied and there was no Internet to help you through.
"Dendy", "Steepler", VG consoles, clones, accessories, games and more - in Kinaman's new review movie "The Grey Elephant's Curse".

Dendy wow, good videos.

I although have no problem with cartridge games that are just their circuit boards :) Best way to guarantee the region lockout of some games simply doesn't work is to just remove the plastic shell.
