This custom Famicom Pocket was a good idea

Can you cram a Famicom Mini inside a Game Boy? Yes. But should you? Hell yeah! Well, maybe not you you, but Kei Studio sure managed the feat with an impressive "Famicom Pocket" build. This 25-minute-long video gets into the specifics, as d...

EyeForcer fights against 'Gameboy Disease' or 'Tech Neck'

I've written before about some of the wackier stuff that we get on the Destructoid tip line. Sometimes, we get tips about Kickstarter projects that have concluded successfully. Niero himself brought this one to our attention after seeing it...

This collector video is making me miss Game Boy cartridges

"Try" of My Life in Gaming is now taking on the issue of displaying Game Boy games, which are one of the more clunky formats in recent years. The group's new video goes through some of the common options -- a shelf, a tub (which is the...

This is the Game Boy of my dreams

This "Game Boy Zero" from YouTube user Wermy ranks way up there as far as cool custom systems go. Besides the nice new screen and two extra face buttons (taken from an NES controller to provide a more authentic feel), the system also has e...

Tauros is how you objectively kick ass at Pokemon

Everyone has their theory on how to be the best Pokémon trainer in the world. If you ask me, I'd say use that Charizard to obliterate anything that dares to challenge you. Work smarter, not harder. To coincide with the re-releas...

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 ...

Game Boy themed Alien Dinosaurs coming to PC, 3DS and Wii U

Although the digital era gets a lot of [mostly justified] flak, it's done a lot of good as well. Indie teams can generally whip up an awesome project or retro homage in a fraction of the development time, and put it right on Steam Greenlig...

Amazon is listing Pokemon Generation 1 on 3DS at $9.99 each

Well, I guess this would make sense, but it's probably not ideal for a lot of you who were expecting to scoop up the upcoming releases of Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow all at once. Up at Amazon, there's a $9.99 pre-order price live for...

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...
