You won’t believe what these 8 heartthrobs from the ’90s are playing ⊟
You know you’re a ’90s kid if you can name all these shows, right. All my TRUE millennials know what I’m talking about with that Parker Lewis Can’t Lose jam. Shout outs to all the TGIF peeps out there with crushes on JTT, Ian Ziering, and Estelle Getty.
YOUR REACTION? OMG/WTF/LOL/OLD/FAIL/THAT’S SO LIZARD
Den’s slick Game Boy shirt, iPhone skin ⊟
Hey, I would wear this, even if that Game Boy looks huge. Japanese online shop [den] is selling these in Black and Blue variations for ¥2,100 each, or around $20. It has a few other dope tees in its catalog, like one that’s just the error screen when you boot up a Game Boy without a cartridge.
[den] also sells these cute stickers that make the back of your iPhone look like the back of a Game Boy — it’s a neat alternative to those Game Boy iPhone cases I see everywhere on Tumblr and Instagram nowadays. I wonder if you can draw on the sticker to put your tiny cartridge of choice in there.

Here is a suitcase that looks like a giant Game Boy ⊟
ThinkGeek’s “Travel Boy Carry-On Luggage" looks like a nice carry-on bag, with zipper compartments, swiveling wheels, and a three-digit combination lock. It also looks like a Game Boy! I’m sure there’s plenty of room for Game Boy towels.
I kind of want to travel with one of these full of nothing but those towels just to see what the TSA would do. But I suspect what they would do is detain and search me, which isn’t really that funny.
Multi-colored and Game Boy 2DSes ⊟
The Europe-only red/white 2DS doesn’t look bad at all, but how great would it be if you could pick from a whole line of these milky models with different accents? Not that we’d ever get them stateside because Nintend of America is allergic to white handheld hardware. Thanks for the mock-up, Mye.
Oh, and here’s what a Game Boy-themed 2DS would look like (photoshop courtesy of MisterHero). And I included this shot of the 2DS’s back to calm all those worries going around that the new model wouldn’t have a face in a place — a tradition for Nintendo’s portables going back to the DSi.
Mega Man's Game Boy releases coming to 3DS VC
After releasing all of the NES titles to the eShop — and after a lot of groveling from Dr. Wily — Capcom has decided to release the rest of the Mega Man’s Game Boy titles (II-V) to the 3DS Virtual Console in North America and Europe. We don’t have any release dates yet, but we do know that Mega Man Xtreme 1 and 2 from the Game Boy Color are also coming too!

Badass cyberpunk Game Boy mask
This is some dystopian gaming survival apparatus type of shit. Like you’re about to hook up your face to the Neuronet and drop some zero-days on megacorp mainframes. It’s the kind of thing you wear while blasting El-P and doing drive-bys in a floating whip system, yelling out “Tetsuooooooo!” before draining a 40-watt phased plasma rifle into a gang of Com-Bots.
Pepperoni Pizza Game Boy Pocket
Reminds me of this quote from former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi:
“If the Game Boy looks like a pizza, we will rise to heaven, but if it doesn’t, we will sink to hell.”
NewBanZo painted this slice (toppings also include an inverted red LED backlight, clear red buttons, and an internal prosound mod), and 8bit Aesthetics is selling it for $119.99.
[Update: Looks like Nyan Cat creator Chris Torres just bought it!]
Game Boy Game Boy Game Boy
I doubt anyone cares what we post here this afternoon, given that everyone’s eyes are on the next Xbox reveal, so here’s a fun GIF from Pedro Miranda Filho. He has a lot of great GIFs on his Tumblr, so follow him.
No need to spend another night’s prayer on wishing for a Super Mario All-Stars-style graphical overhaul for Super Mario Land — Arne Niklas Jansson created one and released the patch! It reminds me a lot of Minitroid, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
Poké Ball and Game Boy-themed 3DS mock-ups
Just posting these with the hope that someone will feel inspired to modify their system with similar looks. I really like the Poké Ball design (both are from Wenis), but I’d prefer Nintendo of America bringing over th Charizard XL. Hey, we got the Pikachu XL with Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, so it could happen with Pokémon X and Y!
Wonderful bootleg Game Boy cartridges
I found my favorite new tumblr: 76~10MG IN 1. It’s a collection of photos for clone systems and bootleg carts taken from auction sites, like that Chobits-looking thing that’s apparently a Shin Megami Tensei game. I love adding posts to our #bootleg tag.
