Incredible cardboard Game Boy Color by MaboroshiTira. The buttons are pushable, the on-off switch moves, and the volume dial rotates. And it’s an enormous, detailed Game Boy Color.VIA @dannychoo
Born (and still alive) on the GBA, presently on it’s 166th release, seminal homebrew roguelike POWDER has been in development for 8 years.
Creator Jeff Lait recently discussed the history of this glorious oddball on the 9th episode of Roguelike Radio.
Metroid II: Return of Samus will be out this Thursday in both Europe and North America. That’s great news for those of you who, say, have a Metroid II cartridge, but haven’t seen it in a couple of years, and aren’t sure where your old Atomic Purple Game Boy Color is anyway.
I think it would be really interesting to go back and play Metroid II after Aliens: Infestation. They’re both inspired by the same source material (Metroid and Aliens, both to varying degrees), and they’re similar in style.

Ninja Cop in Europe. This game is So. Fucking. Good. It’s like a gorgeous Genesis action game that time forgot; Bionic Commando, Rolling Thunder, and Shinobi stewed to perfection. Not one ounce of filler. Developed by Hudson, published by Konami.
