On your NES: Mystery Science Theater 30XX and other hacked ROMs

5:02 PM on 01.23.2007 // Analog Pidgin

In the not-too-distant future, a boy ... no, a man ... NO, a ROBOT must face evils the likes of can be seen only in the worst movies of all time. Not every hacked ROM can be a work of art like Cory Arcangel's Clouds, but make no mistake, I totally want to get my manos on a working cartridge copy of this hacked Mega Man 3 ROM for my personal collection.

I give you Tom Servo, as reviewed by Dr. Boogie over at I-Mockery. It's a clever endeavor that falls short of "amazing" by a longshot, but the sheer dork-factor of trying to remake Mega Man 3 in their image makes up for a lot. I loved MST3K growing up, and now I get to play it, Capcom-style!

Leaving a lot to be desired, at least the designer chose to give Joel, and not Mike, a prominent storyline role, which you can read about in the review.

What you can also find on I-Mockery are other hacked ROM reviews with varying degrees of disturbing concepts, executions, and rape...lots of rape. If you really want, you can check out such titles as Evil Dead, Baby Dodge Ball, Nude Punch-Out, Dick Dug, and the one that wins the door prize for "Game with the Most F***ed-up Creator Who Has Too Much Free Time," Little Remo: The Child Abuser. Most, if not all, ROMs have download links at the bottom of the reviews.
