Mike and Bootsy play Where’s Waldo for NES!

Love these vids, Mike & Bootsy! Loved the review by AVGN about how you just click all over the fuckin’ screen to find him haha. 60 bucks, beats the game in 5 minutes.

If the graphics were good then it would be easy to find Waldo and there wouldn’t be much of a challenge now would there? You guys have beaten the game, so it’s not impossible to find Waldo in this game

Surprised you guys didn’t mention that this wasn’t the only Waldo game for the NES.
The other game, The Great Waldo Search, has an amazing little intro for the NES (lol).

In addition to the weird colors (Waldo with red pants??), part of the charm of the books was seeing all the crazy stuff going on around Waldo, and that’s completely lost when everything is a blurry clump of pixels (though you guys came up with some interesting interpretations, at least). I guess you could say that some of the weird-color Waldos are supposed to “Odlaw”, the evil anti-Waldo (or if we’re using Mario Bros. naming conventions, he’s called “Wawaldo”).

Trivia: “Wario” is a contraction of “Warui Mario”. “Warui” is Japanese for “Bad”.

Well, that at least makes Waluigi seem a lot less awkward.

See as a kid when I played Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, I thought it was because a “W” is an upside down “M” as per the ending in that game.

Not afraid to admit that I still liked it for the nostalgia value especially for the music!

Famous Waldos? How about the bird from Twin Peaks?

I have no idea how you found any of the Waldos in this game. I remember being obsessed with the books when I was a kid and it was enough of a challenge when Waldo was the right colors!
Bootsy, cool Harry Nilsson T-shirt.
The only other Waldo I can think of is The Great Waldo Pepper. 😛

You guys need to play Jim Power The Lost Dimension in 3D for SNES. It’s amazing.

Who is Harry Nilsson and why does Bootsy have a random swede on his shirt?
