Video game revisitation of the month: Gameboy Advance!

Remember upgrading from your dinky Gameboy color, pocket, or brick to one of these beauties?  Oh how wonderful one's hands feel, when caressing the supple curves of a classic Gameboy Advance...  The first Nintendo handheld that utilizes bumpers, New, extra-wide high resolution screen, what's not to love?  Too often, classic platforms are tossed aside, great game titles displaced to the clearance bin or pawned off as a set for 5 dollars at a garage sale, this is why I have declared the remainder of September and October as Gameboy Advance revisitation month!  Some may find themselves lacking the necessary hardware to go about this project, to them I offer this wonderful little Gameboy emulator: http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/gba/vboyadvance.html

Visualboy is great, gives you the feel of playing an advance, with the convenience of being right on your desktop, No AA's needed!  You can find free roms online, just fucking google it!

My first revisitation title:  Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland

Expect a review when I complete it.  If you have a title you'd like to see me play / review, leave a comment!  Don't forget to show some love!

  5. I loved the Gameboy Advanced. It was so glorious and such an improvement from the Gameboy color. It felt so futuristic and modern. The wide, bright, colorful screen. I remember F-Zero and Super Mario 2.
    And the cartridges felt so cool because they were small.
