Child’s Play

Thursday, December 30th, 2004

EGM’s article last year about making 11 year-olds play ‘retro’ games and writing down the ensuing hilarity was so popular that they decided to do it again.

It’s always refreshing to get a fresh look at some of the games that a lot of us grew up with without wearing the Goggles of Nostalgia.

From the article: (In reference to Gunstar Heroes) “This is insane. This is why you don’t do drugs. You make screwed up videogames.”

Thanks to [Ev3]Sniperfox for sending me a link to a screenshot of Half-Life 3.

DS Mods

I found an interesting story that says that it’s not only possible to modify your Nintendo DS to play Game Boy and Game Boy Color games, but someone’s actually done it.

Then not an hour later I found another article saying the original article was a hoax.

The original story looks convincingly busted to me, but it’s an interesting read nonetheless.
