In 1983, Sega said, "We took a shot at creating a 3-D looking game for the arcade. Congo Bongo looks amazing."
"We took a shot," some staffer said. "But it really doesn't look that great."
"We should now adapt that for the home console," the powers-that-be said. "It will look even better."
"It will look even worse," the staffer said and was summarily fired.
Okay, that's not exactly how it happened, but it might as well have.
Well, if Gilligan can spend all those years lovin' on his coconuts. We can spend one episode.
This week's short story is: "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts...But is That All There is to Life?"
