Review: Pokemon Gold

Pokémon for me personally was a defining piece of media growing up. I can still recall recess at school and seeing groups of kids huddled around Game Boy screens or playing the card game. I even remember the first episode of Pok&eacu...

Review: Pokemon Silver

As someone who grew up in the late '90's and early 2000's, I was a huge fan of the Pokémon series as a child. I was the type of person who'd make it a habit to wake up as early as possible to watch the latest episode of the anim...

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 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...

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...
