Review: Pokemon Blue

Growing up, Pokémon wasn't just a game. It was also a way of life. I didn't have a Game Boy in time for Red, Blue, or even Yellow, but that didn't stop me from succumbing to Pokémania like every other kid in the '90s. Our poor...

Review: Pokemon Red

Over the course of the past few weeks, I've been interviewing people regarding their first Pokémon experience, and it usually involves finding out about it a few months, or even years after it launched in the US (like Laura's fi...

Review: Pokemon Yellow

The first time I played Pokémon Yellow, I was nine years old. My older brother had taken me with him to a nearby snooker hall where a friend of his gave us a floppy disc. It contained a PC emulator for Yellow, which broke reliably an...

Welp, now I'm in the mood for Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow

Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow are making their way to 3DS soon, and if you haven't played them in a while -- perhaps since you were kid, like me -- you're in for some real weird sprites. Between "Tiny Turtle," shirtless Brock, and a ...

This custom 'Pikaboy' Game Boy Color is amazing

One of my favorite things to do at Destructoid is share passion projects from all the other gamers out there, and this "Pikaboy" is no exception. Although the project itself is a bit old in nature, eforie's creation, which came t...

These old Pokémon ads and toys bring me back

I went down an Internet wormhole last night when I really, truly should've just gone to bed. It began with this Imgur album of old Pokémon ads, but as someone who grew up alongside Pokémania, it couldn't end there. I had flash...

Super Smash Bros on 3DS is getting this neat Game Boy stage

I had ever intention to just play the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. I think I'm going to have to check out the 3DS version now though after seeing there's going to be a Game Boy stage.  Sakurai even threw in a "ba-ding" for good m...

The RetroN 5 is my childhood of gaming in one box

Hyperkin's RetroN 5 console will be released in the Americas for $140 beginning June 6, 2014. It seems to be sold out for the time being, so I hope you got your pre-order in. This thing is a beast, supporting NES, Famicom, SNES, Super Famic...

My favorite characterization of EA shuttering Visceral, and pivoting the design of the Amy Hennig Star Wars game (potentially w micro-transactions): So, this was playing a bit like Snickers, and we were looking for something more like
