Picked up a pair of Power Gloves for NES!

Postby CanadianRyGuy » Mon Apr 23, 2018 7:08 am

I was able to snag a pair of Power Gloves over the weekend for $30 (one large and one small). I've gone my whole life having always wondered how these damn things worked and so when the opportunity came up to grab them, I pounced on it. I had remembered hearing that they were pretty bad, but I'm willing to make my own judgements. Even if the thing is garbage, just to say I have one (or 2!) in my collection was worth it lol

Anyone have one of these things and recommend which games work well with it?

Hmm, the silence does not bode well for the Power Glove's reputation hahaha

If your Power Glove and sensor bars function properly then Glove Ball works pretty good. Most other games don't work well.

I keep meaning to buy one and make a wall display for it. One of the coolest Nintendo items out there.

Congrats mate!

I always wanted a left-handed one, but apparently they're quite rare. :(
