When your daughter asks you to play hockey! You play Hockey!

hockey-sauce-trick-shots-for-web

When your daughter or son asks you “Daddy can we go make one of those hockey trick shot videos?”  You drop whatever you are doing… right there and now!   Playing Hockey with you daughter or son is something they will remember forever!  Don’t even as a Hockey Mom or Dad pass up the opportunity to make great hockey memories… Even if it is just in your driveway =)

Happy Birthday to the console version of Blades of Steel!

happy-birthday-blades-of-steel-nes
Happy Birthday to the console version of Blades of Steel, first released on the Nintendo Famicom on July 22, 1988. Thanks to PSP at www.patrickscottpatterson.com for the info!

Blades of Steel started as an arcade game!  It used two track balls (for one and two player) to move your player up and down the the ice!  Very innovative at the time!  See the control panel below.

The Game’s stand out feature was the fight button!   Once activated gave you a new screen with two players standing up ready to fight… arcade version down below and NES version was the first photo.  Big difference in graphics but both shared some great game play memories!

This game then got ported over to the NES by Konami!  I remember some parents not happy about the fighting feature in the game but this was way before the video game Rating system!  It had some great box art work too as well!  see below.

It also was on the original gameboy!  It had a really cool feature where you could link up two gameboy handhelds to each other and play against one another… the bummer part was both gameboys had to have the blades of steel cart in to play!   see artwork below.

I have tons of great memories playing both the arcade and the console game!  It is definately in my top 5 hockey video games of all time!  Something I must do for a future article!

Happy Birthday Blades of Steel console version!

The Best Thing I Ever Did was….

The first step in anything is… to believe in yourself.  The old saying is… If you think you can or if you think you can’t… you’re right!    Give yourself a break and believe you can do it.  It might be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself.
