Lol^

I've got a HDD for my wii u and I've been downloading a couple of my old games like 101. What the hell is going on with switch and wii u when you have external storage? On switch my SD card is full but I've still got 20 gig free on the actual console but then it won't download any more games because it says that the SD card is full. It won't let me just choose where to actually download the game onto. On way wii u it wouldn't let me specify that I wanted the games downloaded onto the hard drive. So had to Move games from the Wii U onto the external hard drive and then download the new games onto the Wii U directly and then shift them across to the hard drive later. Massive pain in the ass.

Happy 30th birgthday Gameboy!

Lets all take a moment to think about all the great and weird gizmo's this lineage has provided us with.

I think my favorites would be the magnifying glass/lamp accessory that allowed you to play the original Gameboy in the dark.  I also had some kind of beefed up speakers you could slot over the bottom end and required extra batteries.  Nyaa

Other notable 'innovations':  The rumble cart on the Gameboy Colour game Pokémon Pinball, and that weird game about beating vampires that required you to actually play it outside in the sun, where the screen wouldn't be able to cope with all the light and you couldn't make anything out.

Also: original GBA screen being darker than originally promised to developers, making it so that all release games were so dark you could hardly see any detail.

Ahhh the good ole Gameboy. The very first system I actually saved up in purchased with my own money.

When I actually purchased it, I had been doing kind of poorly in school and my parents started limiting how much I could play video games. With the gameboy, that was really easy for them. My mom kept it in a cabinet where she kept a ton of potpourri scented things for the holidays. I would get to use it on occasion, but for the most part it stayed in that cabinet for about 2 months.

When summer came around and I finally got it back, it pretty much had that same clove in spice smell attached to it. That smell lingered on the Gameboy for the next two years.
