Re: Should I buy an original Game Boy?

Should I buy an original Game Boy? Yes and no. No, because you get a better experience playing the games on superior hardware, such as the GBA SP or Game Boy Player that you mentioned. Yes, because you a get better idea if a game actually was suitable for the original hardware. Take a game such as ...

Re: Should I buy an original Game Boy?

The trick is to try the unit out before buying. My original unit's screen had massive dead spots on the screen, and a later one I had the screen cover was not holding.

Still fun to play and get the real feeling, especially with games like Wario Land and Zelda.

Admittedly, it took me a while to notice WHAT Rayman was throwing, as I saw a windup motion and didn't read the manual...

Playing Rayman 2 did help later...

Re: 2019/6/22: Game Boy Color: Rayman, Star Wars Episode I: Obi Wan's Adventures

I can't believe it's been over 20 years since Star Wars Episode I!! Let's hear your thoughts on these new GBC reviews. Oh nuts, it HAS been 20 years since Star Wars went down the Prequel Path... On Obi Wan's Adventures, I liked the aesthetics graphically, but about everything else was just average ...

Re: Merge Game Boy Reviews?

I'd request that you keep them separate. GBA definitely shouldn't be combined with GB/GBC -- they're as different as the Master System and the Genesis, or the 2600 and 7800, or PS1 and PS2. All backwards-compatible but all distinct. I personally strongly prefer having GB and GBC separate, because t...

Re: Merge Game Boy Reviews?

I would vote for keeping them separate. While the core of both the Game Boy and Game Boy Color is very similar, there are technical differences between the two that justify the difference. Aside from just color, the main system of the GBC is more advanced than the GB and supports larger carts. Conve...

Re: Should Yooka-Laylee have the controversial icon or no?

After looking at what happened to PewDiePie (posted pro nazi material) JonTron (posted racist nonsense) and Projared (got caught sending photos of "little Jared" to underage girls), it would probably be best if game developers avoided putting youtube "celebrities" in their games...

Re: Book Review: SNES Omnibus Vol 2 N-Z

Picked it up shortly after release, very good read. Was very amused by the VGC appearing in the comments for virtually every sports game in the book. ;-)

Re: Should Yooka-Laylee have the controversial icon or no?

I actually believe there's a case to be made aside from the JonTron stuff. Sure, that caused a stir, but there's also the fact that it was put on a pedestal before it came out as some savior of the 3D collectathon platformer, but then it released to average reviews and mixed opinions. It's often se...
