    Amazing, even people in the far future when civilization has collapsed can still play the Gameboy with the Game Boy Solar!

    The Gameboy is the ultimate lifeform.

    Edited:

    It even has a mech suit with it's Booster addon.

    The "why not just make a model with a better screen" line kinda bugged me, because they did, it's called the Game Boy Pocket, and the Game Boy Light with the lit screen.

    One thing about the video, you can turn the camera around on the Game Boy Camera, that's what the arrow on the side of the camera is for.

    The Game Boy Light was never released outside of Japan though

    Yeah, but it still existed. And "better screen" still applies to the Pocket, lit screen or not.

    makes sense though, how many pocket sized computers existed in the 90's? the gameboy was a very handy piece of tech to plug other functions on it

    I thought the fidget spinner opening was funny. Even if I somehow didn't know what a fidget spinner was I would have still laughed.

    Holy shit though the amount of people bitching about the fidget spinner in the youtube comments is just stupid

    I thought the anger in this episode was really off put. Like, he was really pushing the quota for getting angry for no reason. I get it your the AVGN but you dont HAVE to when you dont need to. The NES accessories was justifiable because of the hunks of plastic that they tried selling that didnt work.

    Wait... the platform shoes are real!?

    I thought it was a joke! Tho it seems it was for some sort of ad campaign from Nintendo. Or at least it feels like it. Like the weird Gamecube/GB Advance ads they had going on.

    The Sonar one actually sounds useful. Well, if the sky's not too cloudy that is.

    The WonderSwan also had a sonar gadget (Probably made by the same company??) and even a game that let you build your own IRL remote controlling robot and do things with it. Portable consoles there seem to always get weird accessories

    It seems like it fits great though. It's like he's saying "you see this shit? I'm giving it the bird". At least that's how I saw it. Plus that move was just amazing.

    If you want more of this, check out Ashen's Game Boy Extravaganza.


    He got the Handy Boy working properly, and there's also a beast even bigger than the Handy Boy which turns it into an arcade cabinet.

    8 bit guy did a video on the camera and GB printer. Gives you a better look at the quality its capable of (not bad given its constraints). But I think it would be been pretty cool back in 1999.

    I kind of thought selfies would go away, but it seems they are here to stay. Instagraming food is a lot less popular now, though, isn't it?

    UPDATE: The GameBoy camera turns around. Thanks for the info. I had no idea. There's nothing I can do about it now. The video is out. If I could go back in time and change it, I would. But isn't it funnier this way?
