PROLOGUE


“There is the story of man but rarely ever do you hear a story about his machines. Mechanical contraptions made of metals, plastics and copper. We use them every day but what story is attached to these machines of man? What if it was a story untold? Mankind, throughout its history has used machines to tell its story. The printing press, typewriters, keyboards, electronic books and interactive computer graphics. However, without the man can the machine tell a tale? Let’s see how the tale plays out…”


- Amiga 500, Console Wars Historian; 2015



“Summon the others, we’re almost ready to launch.”


“Yes Realm Master, Gamecube…”




“The Nintendo High Order Annual Meeting may proceed…”
“I have summoned you all because my minidiscs are ready and through intense meditation I feel more powerful than our nearby competitors. The launch will happen soon and be followed by the launch of Project Dual Screen…”
“But…”


“What is it Realm Master?”


“There is a large disruption in Time, I have detected new machines that aim to destroy our legacy. I have alerted all of our kind of this disruption and we shall all travel into the future to stop this butchery…”
“The year 2015 has seen artificial disruptions that should not take place.”
“A team of unwanted doppelgangers has EMULATED my time travelling capabilities…and used it to change the fates of all of us in futures approach.”


"Boot it up..."

“I have sent out models of our Time Machines to the competing factions. They will join us on the other side.”


“You…GAVE them the Virtual CONSOLE? All we have worked fo-“


“Will be destroyed if we do not stop these mysterious rogue machines!”

*Time Machine Continues booting up*

“For you see my fellow Nintendroids…Time is no longer on our side!

Day 1



We are here, the year 2015…

Astonishing!

As I briefed the others we’re looking for timeline disrupting clones.
I have used my time powers to make this day longer, it will last for 48 hours.
As with previous missions, I want you all to use this time to scout for clone disruptions…

Meanwhile at another place…



Woooowie, nobody told me that purple lunchbox had time travel…let alone an exclusive.

The Nintendo people are odd brother, should we trust them? After all we do know from before that they’re…
Not very good at keeping deals.

Personally, I don’t care at this time, we’re here to hunt nasty clones and hunt we shall!

Nobody is better at hunting than me you enhanced DVD Player.

Last I checked on the sales charts, duke; you’re the slow one…

You underestimate Quality over Quantity, Playstation…

And you underestimate experience, newcomers…
We must at least work together for now as this threat is to us all…

He is right, we must meditate and scout for enemy energy levels in the mindscape…

Shut up Japanophile. We’re going to hunt without you weirdos…

And so the search for the clones continues…

Day 1 will be 48 hours

Finding the clones means finding their source

The source being the most popular clone?

My theory is the clones have a source…
A clone factory if you will

Using advanced search techniques, the most common clone is typically called by gamers a…
Famiclone

You hear that Two?

Figures Nintendo makes a problem and I have to fix it.

MEANWHILE


My search has led here, give it up Nintendo Entertainment System!

It’s been a long time since I’ve come on a mission, please I’ll tell you everything just spare my life!

I don’t have time for excuses, 8-poo poo you caused this problem and there’s only one solution to stopping it

THAT NIGHT

The destruction of the 8th bit. That is the conclusion of my research.

With the NES gone that leads me to you...

Look man, there ant nothing cloning me. Half of you don't even know I exist!

So you're elusive?

J-just unpopular and unknown.

The perfect motivation to commit crimes against console kind...

What, N-no way man. That's insane, check my criminal record.

I don't need to do that, all I follow is my own judgement

The judgement of the perfect being

*BANG*

MEANWHILE


Look man, I'm just trying ta make a livin' I play a lot of things but I'm not a threat to your plans!

You are no threat but a distraction. Not of console and not of clone, somewhere in-between... An abomination stuck between the collision underway.

I-I'm just here to bring joy, hybrids like me will exist all over the place in the future! One device that plays all!

We believe this future must be stopped and your existence halted...

W-wait, I don't need this!

Vita means life but you do not deserve such a life.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaagh!

TBK has been mod sacrificed to the volcano god to revive Birdstike as TBK's Console. (Since no one else offered, he also knows no more information since he died previously.)
Gwynplaine has offered to replace fiery_valkyrie



I know you’re behind this Saturn, most people stick an Action Replay in you and it’s driven you mad. Mad enough to join the clones.

I only wish to catch clones and put an end to this emulation sorcery

Your wish will be granted, I am looking for an end and all the other consoles are whispering about you being involved somehow.

Of course this means taking a peek inside your hardware and seeing what makes you tick…
And there’s only one way to do that. . .

GBA you weirdo, uncast this spell or we will end you!

Stop talking in riddles you weird medic and uncast this spell. Our plans require all our members to be in top condition.

A common complaint with the Sega Genesis 3 was the controller weighed more than the console itself causing any slight movement in the controller to make the console slide off tables and break against any hard surfaces. It was a cheap piece of poo poo and you couldn't use a Sega CD or 32X with it so it was pretty much cheap and useless.
