Wow! If you actually read the stuff on the catalogue, it seems like one huge spoof! Probably Something Awful is behind it =)

Well, obviously the comments are not from the original... ^_^U And they're the LOL, BTW.
But the products and the catalog, I believe they were/are real, from what people said.

Yeah it's real, I have that catalog somewhere in a box with my Nintendo power collection from when I was a kid. Sadly... I actually had some of that stuff... I had the calender, NES max, NES advantage, Powerglove, and maybe the pillow or some other stuff... what can I say, I liked Nintendo when I was a kid. :D

Yeah it's for real alright. I'm pretty sure that catalog was included with an issue of Nintendo Power. I had the Nes max and tried Nintendo cereal once but most of the stuff in the catalog was even too nerdy for me at the time. Hyper color, spandex, and neon were more my style back then. Not to say dressing like an actor from In Living Color was any less nerdy than dressing like a walking advertisement for Nintendo. I can still remember the Nintendo cereal jingle. And even a few old Nintendo power jingles too.

Nes wireless controllers were ahead of their time. They should bring those back with current wifi technology. Oh wait the revolution. right

These designs are straight out of my history graphic design course when we learned about new wave style. I also thought it was the ugliest shit too and will never use it in my work.

Yeah, that lunchbox...

Wow, it's been a long time since I've seen that "mario sniffing his own crotch" illustration. It used to be everywhere in the late '80s, and it always confused me a little.

As a matter of fact, how did this Power Glove (the thread icon, BTW) thing work?

If it was just to put your right hand in it, leaving only your left hand for the actual controls (as it seems to me from the pic...), well, that's quite... eh... stupid.

Please do not notice that No Neck McFee and Denim Bandero are using controllers with no cords.

I LOVED the conversation between Mario and Luigi! I heard that butt-sexx level was intense!

amazing... (also i didn't know that all merchandise was offered with nintendo... I'm surprised they didn't have Ninendo branded Sea monkeys, that when under magnifying glass, you can see Nes characters!

Somebody who actually owned a Powerglove may be able to answer this question better than I can but from what I understand the movement of your right hand would correspond to the standard directional pad while you would push the buttons with your left. It always seemed like an awkward and pointlessly difficult way of playing a game especially since there weren't many (any?) games built around the glove. Here's to hoping the Revolution controller doesn't re-create the same questionable experience.

I didn't have a Powerglove, but if I remember right, wasn't there exactly ONE game designed for it? It was like, handball in space or something and it came with the glove.

Sounds exciting, though coming into the scene too late for the Powerglove, I have higher expectations: I demand a six-worthless-games-in-one cartidge with my Superscope. Well, and there was Yoshi's Safari I think.
