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!]

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.

Two-button Street Fighter does not sound fun (from what I remember, Mortal Kombat for Game Boy was straight-up basura), but these old sprites overlaid into real-world environments would be a dream to see on handhelds.
Game Boy and Fox
Two comics about the old handheld brick for your morning, the top one from Lamar Abrams and the other from Kyle Fewell. What a wonderful time we live in, when we can just wake up and have a couple Game Boy comics waiting for us.

Game Boy carts and boxes were an accessory at Williamsburg Fashion Weekend 2013
The t-shirts, t-skirts, and Game Boy necklaces (they look like print-outs and not the actual carts) are from fashion and graphic pop artist Marco Santaniello. Photos by Jena Cumbo, make up by Dori Hmua.

Do You Believe In Life After Love?
After a few fake-outs at the beginning, Ro-Bear delivers a rousing chiptune cover of Cher’s song “Believe” that has the crowd at Philly’s 8static singing along. Thanks for attending and capturing this moment, Albotas!
BUY Cher's "Believe"
Let’s all go into the weekend in this spirit: stretched out on a cushion, just playing whatever makes us happy, whether it’s Fire Emblem or Mega Man 2 – oh yeah, Mega Man 2’s out on eShop this week! – or something from the backlog.
The other chap next to the adorable Adventure Time portable is MO-Death, whom Clog Two describes as “a circuit board being, that awaits BMO’s last breath.” But… I don’t want BMO to die ever.
