Barbara's Radio Mode Monologues

In Radio mode, Barbara will often go off on monologues, and some of these reference Nintendo games. Here are a few that have been discovered so far:

"Is there any other game work I can get into? They said I couldn't replace Mario as the Nintendo mascot because of my attitude. They wouldn't even let me be president."

"The NES, or Nintendo Entertainment System, was first released in Japan on the 15th of July, 1983. And much like me, it quickly grew to be loved the world over."

"Ever hear of the Game & Watch? It's kind of like the DS's ancestor. Modern technology is amazing, isn't it? It's even got to the level where it can show off my true beauty."
