It’s true that the original Game Boy is a timeless piece of portable video gaming. Heck, I know that I spent countless hours trying to beat my best at Tetris. In this great little hack, the familiar green screen is gone.
This colorful Game Boy isn’t really an customized old school Nintendo Game Boy. Nah. It’s actually completely made out of paper! Well, it sure fooled me.
When I first saw this, I tried to remember if they ever came out with a Game Boy in these colors.
Neatoramanaut Dennis shared pics of Super Mario-themed shelves that he and his girlfriend Judith put together for their apartment. Actually Judith did almost everything. And Mama Mia, what a piece of woodwork:
The shelves and cloud are all made of wood, while the mushroom, Mario and Luigi figures were store bought; naturally, the princess is missing.
No, you aren’t hallucinating. A Japanese modder managed to cram an iPhone into a Game Boy Advance – and I kind of like it, albeit in a sort of retro kind of way.
This is the perfect combination for someone who loves their iPhone as much as playing their Game Boy.
You know me, slap some retro Nintendo stuff on anything, and I’ll probably write about it. Actually, no. It actually has to be cool. Here’s a little something for you gamer grlz out there who have a fond place in your hearts for your old Nintendo Game Boy.
Man, the classic, brick-sized Nintendo Game Boy sure gets a lot of love in the modding/hacking community. Like that retro-tacular iPhone case we showed you a few days ago. Or this Game Boy that someone managed to shove a 80GB SATA hard drive into.
Sure, the iPhone is cool and all, but it’s awfully slick and modern. Oh, if only it were a little more brick-shaped and didn’t have all those pesky colors in the screen. Monochrome, that’s what I want… monochrome, and a good game of Tetris.
There aren’t as many video game apps for the Mac as there are for Windows computers, and even then I have a feeling that there’s no program, Windows or otherwise, that lets you play and play with retro video games the way OpenEmu does.
Got one of those Texas Instruments graphing calculators? This nifty little program for TI-83+SE, TI-84+, and TI-84+SE calculators lets you play Nintendo Game Boy games instead of doing your math problems.
Written by Brendan Fletcher (aka “calc84maniac”), TI-Boy SE is a Game Boy emulator that runs on TI’s Z-80 based graphing calculators thanks to similarities between the CPUs of the two systems.
There’s just something about the iconic Game Boy that makes people want to give it a face, thus turning the system into a lovable character. The latest examples may not be quite as expressive as the last personable Game Boy plushies seen around these parts, but they do have something going for them: legs.
Saddened over the loss of the GBA slot in Nintendo’s new DSi? Fret not, young gamer; if this particular rumor bears sweet, juicy fruit, you just may be able to download all those old Nintendo handheld games via the DSiWare service–or at least some of them.
Sighted at last week’s Ohayocon 2009 in Columbus, Ohio, some dude went all out with this life size Nintendo Game Boy costume that’s actually playable.
The cardboard Game Boy shell is a little janky, but the wearer deserves mad props for the fully-functional Game Boy emulator, running Tetris on a laptop screen.
