    Avengers Assemble For Gameboy Mod

    This awesome Gameboy mod uses Avengers stickers and some spare time. Avengers Endgame is out in cinemas and it’s breaking all kinds of records. I saw it yesterday and loved it. I also love Gameboy mods (I even finished one this weekend). So I was stoked to see both of them combined for this mod. YouTuber The ONerd took inspiration from the movie and fixed a broken Gameboy that didn’t read games in the process. This was 1 of 7 broken Gameboys he got from Craigslist, according to the video description. Spoiler alert (not for the movies: it just needed a good clean. Easy peasy. After that, he covered the…

    Fantasy Pokémon Teams

    Are you a Pokémon veteran and want some ideas for your team? How about some fantasy-themed teams based on cartoons? As of today, there are a total of 809 different Pokémon meaning 382,197,543,688,324 team combinations and that’s if you don’t have more than one of the same creature amongst the six. That number is 382 trillion, 197 billion, 543 million, 688 thousand, 324. Picking the right group can be tricky, whether you’re playing competitively or for fun so if you’re bored of picking the same Pokémon each time, why not spruce things up a bit? Inspired by a Reddit post I saw the other day, I’ve put together some “fantasy…

    How to Trade From Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow To Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire

    Stop the press! With a little bit of money and patience, you can now trade Pokemon from Gen 1 to Gen 6. Most entranced Pokemon trainers gained consciousness when Ruby and Sapphire was released in 2003. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the phrase “there are too many Pokémon now, I remember when there were just 150″. I used to think that too but I’ve grown accustomed to the breadth of the Pokémon world. Amongst us are players who want to trade their original RBY Pokémon to the new games – for nostalgic purposes. Lord knows if I’d kept the saves I had, I’d have the greatest…

    The Trials And Tribulations Of An amiibo Collector

    Kow tells his long but worthwhile tale of becoming an amiibo collector. Hello all, my name is Kow. Well, not really, but I prefer to go by that name. Some of you may know me, but for those who don’t, I make music and what not. However, I’m not here to promote or advertise myself at all. I’m here probably for the same reason you all are: you love and/or grew up with video games being a key factor in your life. As we all may have some interest in video game culture, I feel rather lucky to be honest. For one, I’m a huge Nintendo fan and Nintendo is the greatest…

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Outsells The Sega Pico and TurboGrafx-16

    Goodness me. According to Nintendo’s recent financial release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has sold 13.81 million units worldwide. Needless to say the release has been a success. But what makes that number even more incredible is that it means it has sold more copies than the Sega Pico and TurboGrafx-16 combined. Yes, the actual consoles. For a game that has only been out four months to sell more than two of the most iconic consoles of the 90s should really embarrass Sega, NEC Home Electronics, and Hudson Soft (well, if Hudson were still around. But they should be ashamed anyway). Other sales numbers from the report: Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! – 10.63…

    Happy 30th Birthday, Gameboy!

    The big grey brick is 30 years old today and, thanks to a modding community, still lives a supreme life. The original grey Gameboy – also known as the Gameboy DMG – is an iconic piece of technology. Gunpei Yokoi was its original designer when it launched on 21st April 1989 and it was part of the Gameboy line that sold over 118m units worldwide. But why was it so popular, and how did it manage to live for so long before a recent revival? Its official lifespan was 1989–2003 – which included the Pocket, Light, and Color variants. 15 years is a long time for a line of gaming tech…

    So You Wanna Be A Master? Part 2: Pokemon Silver

    The series continues as Luke Davis talks about his first experiences with Pokémon Silver. The year is 2000. The month: October. I’d moved over 4000 miles across the Atlantic to Atlanta with my parents as my dad got a teaching job there. The stay lasted six months but my parents enjoyed it as much as a trip to a Nazi dentist. there were some happy memories to take from the experience though. I’ll start with a little background info… A few weeks into my stay, my Gameboy was misplaced and stolen. Amongst the games stolen was my beloved Pokémon Blue cart. I’d lost my Blastoise and my legendary team. For…

    The Retro Future does a Let’s Refurb on a faulty gold Gameboy Pocket

    And it looks incredible afterwards. Our parent site LOG!CFACE featured a Let’s Refurb from The Retro Future a while back and his craft has grown from strength to strength. Lately, he’s been tackling more complex fixes on Nintendo 2DS’s and 3DS’s but last week, he went back to an old classic. The unit he got was a corroded Gameboy Pocket. The casing looked like it was being consumed by a sepia symbiote and the circuitry had succumbed to corrosion. The final result has some cleaning and adjustments is amazing. It resonated with me especially as I used to own a Gameboy Color with a special gold outer case. I’m tempted…

    Maxo Remixes “Catch Me If You Can” From First Pokémon Movie

    Brooklyn producer reworks “Catch Me If You Can” from Pokémon: The First Movie. I still own VHS tapes, and one of my coveted videos is Pokémon: The First Movie. I saw it at the cinema and thoroughly enjoyed watching it back at home. The soundtrack was particularly catchy. The song “Catch Me If You Can”, co-written and performed by Angela Via, was one of my faves and to coincide with Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, Brooklyn’s Maxo “bombmixed” the track into something equally as feverish. The rework is as contagious as Pokérus and preserves the peppy sounds of the ’90s. Stream it below.

    So You Wanna Be A Master? Part 1: Pokemon Blue

    In this series, I talk about my experiences with each Pokémon game from the first generation to the seventh. This is about Pokémon Blue. I was 9 years old when I felt the adrenaline-fueled rush of tearing away the cellophane from a Pokémon cartridge box. I’ve since experienced other joys and pleasures that eclipse it in intensity but there’s a special place in my heart for a new Pokémon game. Despite red being my favourite colour, I felt a kinship with the cobalt box of Pokémon Blue and the mascot adorning it. I heard from friends that it was called Blastoise and evolved from one of three starter Pokémon. This was like nothing I…
