Lots of fond memories with the Gameboy. It was my first portable console. It's also the last system my parents played as games were getting too advanced for them outside of pinball, Mario and classic Donkey Kong games. 🤣

I never had one but some school friends did.
I still remember the magical feeling of playing motocross and mario bros 2 (i think).. gaming addiction since that very moment

I’ll never forget opening that Christmas gift. I was ill, had a fever, and was screaming with Joy :)

I still have my original GB that I opened up on Christmas morning way back and donkey Kong game it came with.

Still works to I recently picked up a ever drive for a decent price and have been rediscovering some of my all time favourite games like Pokemon, super Mario land 2 and links awakening.

Amazing little system with interesting development and release story.

The story of how Tetris came to be a pack in has been turned into a movie it's that interesting

Welp, Now Nintendo's Going After Sheet Music

It should come as no surprise that Nintendo is pretty protective regarding its IP. Going after emulators, ROM hacks, and reproductions is one thing, but it looks like the firm is starting to aim its sights on something rather surprising: sheet music.

Nintendo sure knows how to take the fun out of everything.

this reminds me of that nintendo facebook social media question where they asked people what their favourite nintendo song was and people posted yt links. EVERY SINGLE ONE WAS TAKEN DOWN

You want to kill a party fast just invite Nintendo. But we are talking about a company who took down pictures of a strategy guide that has never appeared in the west. You don't see Square taking down music or sheet music to Aerith's theme, Tifa's theme, June Mermaid. Memorable tunes stick with fans to great games. Nintendo games have fans that have been routed since the NES. People have Youtube vids showing how to play Zelda's lullaby on piano, violin or my favorite the harp. Nintendo taking down sheet music or those curious about a Japanese strategy guide makes Nintendo look like an asshole to those fans.

Evercade Piko Interactive Collection 4 review - Games Asylum

Games Asylum: "As Forest Gump once mumbled, “Life is a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” The same is also true for Piko Interactive collections, with Piko merely being a license holder – whenever they’re involved, you never know which games are going to appear. It’s a very different case from something like Worms Collection, or the Bitmap Brothers Collection – a five game cart with three of those being iterations of Speedball. Yeah, we’re still bitter."

I really like what evercade is doing with these compilation carts. I cant quite get behind their new alpha tabletop units though... maybe they will grow on me.

Interesting. Diablo IV, Helldivers 2, and Forza Motorsports have been included in the app for a long time.
