The horror: Asteroids meets the shredder

June 11, 2008

No not THE Shredder, villainous foe of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but an actual industrial shredder that is good at well, shredding things. Unfortunately this is not the first time I have seen an Asteroids shredded on video, I had seen one meet it’s doom in this way a few years ago and for any classic game enthusiast it can be a painful thing to watch – those vector monitors are becoming harder to find with each passing day and no one makes them anymore from what I understand (compared to a raster monitor they aren’t complicated).

If you’re a classic game enthusiast with a particular love for Asteroids or you just hate seeing people waste arcade cabinets then you’ll probably want to avert your eyes here and move along. At the very least Asteroids is just one of many, many things these guys shred for entertainment although I don’t think Asteroids NEEDS shredding…Mutant Fighter maybe or some other terrible game.
