One of the games I forgot to look for a trailer for last week was Metroid: Samus Returns, which is a modern version of Metroid II which came out in 1992 (25 years ago!!!) for the original GameBoy. A good friend of mine had this game (and had beat it). As was common back then, we traded game cartridges and I tried to beat this game by starting at the beginning, but I found it frustrating.

Back when I was a teenager I was reading about this collaboration in the gaming magazines of the time (the few that I could afford to buy from the UK when I was living in Greece) and I could only imagine! Engadget did find one of these layout around the video is below. Pretty cool to actually see one. The rumors behind this (and the lack of internet to verify this info) also made
What a difference 20 years make :-) When I was in high school this would have seemed so awesome. Well, it still does, but the super nintendo and the genesis were the thing back then, and shoving it all into a gameboy form factor would have blown my mind!
I've been looking to get some "must have" Gameboy Advance games since I just got myself a refurbished unit back in the fall. When the GBA originally came out I thought that consoles were not that great of an investment, so I was more into computer gaming (the little I could have on the Mac in the days of Classic MacOS). I came across a "must play" game called Ninja Five-O which reminds

This is a fun little video dissecting the Nintendo GameBoy. As a kid I wouldn't have cared, however as an undergraduate computer science major this would have been fascinating to know back in the late 90s :-) I remember programming in x86 assembly for one of my classes (and creating hardware for that same course that the code would run on!) :-)

Τον τελευταίο καιρό κάνω έναν γενικό καθαρισμό και μια οργάνωση από πράγματα που έχω μαζέψει εδώ και κάτι χρόνια. Άρχισα να κρατάω memento και σουβενίρ από διάφορα πράγματα που έκανα (π.χ. τάε κβο ντό), ανθρώπους που γνώριζα,

A few days ago is seems like everywhere on the internet (or at least the places I hang out in), were publishing images of concepts of what a Nintendo phone would look like, which they seem have branded the SmartBoy, calling back to the original mobile hit, the GameBoy. The concept seems to be modular in design, with a gamepad add-on, and add-ons, like a higher megapixel camera, that connect
