Rare Gameboy Advance Prototype Pops Up During Auction

Auctions are treasure troves for some of the coolest items found from gaming past and the latest loot to drop is a nifty blast from the past Game Boy Advance prototype system. 

The Game Boy Advance began its journey into our hearts back in 2001 following the beloved Game Boy Color. This handheld featured peripherals that were ahead of its time, funky fresh (I said it) color choices, and a comfortable design. While the Advance made it onto shelves back in 2001, the year prior was rife with ideas and excitement for this launch, including a special version of the Advance shown off during the 200 Nintendo Spaceworld event. 

This version of the GBA showcases a different color palette for the system itself in addition to differing start-up sounds for when the handheld turns on. 

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Is A Great Collection Of Remasters That Doesn't Quite Go Far Enough

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Is A Great Collection Of Remasters That Doesn't Quite Go Far Enough

Super Mario 3D All-Stars gathers three of the most classic titles Nintendo has ever put out in one must-have collection for Mario fans. Super Mario 64 is a blast to play nearly two and a half decades after release, Super Mario Sunshine, while the most divisive title in the bundle, is a fun and whimsical departure from the typical 3D Mario formula, and Super Mario Galaxy looks right at home in HD in 2020. I relished the opportunity to relive my favorite Mario memories from elementary school, high school, and college with these games. Also, as a die-hard fan of the Mario music, I love having the ability to listen to my favorite tracks from these three soundtracks, but I wouldn't have hated receiving a voucher to add the music to my phone since carrying my Switch as I walk around my neighborhood isn't something I typically do.

How Next-Gen Effectively Killed Console Wars

Sony and Microsoft couldn't have more wildly different approaches to next-gen strategies, and that's a good thing for gamers in more ways than they might realize. No longer competing against one another in a traditional sense, the changes in tactics don't just mean good things for gamers; it also means the end of console wars as we know them in terms of marketing strategies. 

A common way to measure the success of a new console, especially compared to direct competition, is hardware sales but what happens when console sales aren't the main objective? 

In terms of "console wars," gamers, in general, have been almost programmed to view hardware sales as the end all be all metric of success. While hardware sales are a key component to success, there are many other factors that play a role, factors that are more prevalent in this upcoming generation than ever before. The key difference between Microsoft and Sony going forward is a change in their overall marketing and strategy to appeal to gamers on a deeper level while not abandoning the consoles, and sale performance measurements, as a whole.

The Last of Us Part II Meets Studio Ghibli - Fanart

about X hours ago from

Studio Ghibli revolutionalised an incredible art style, so much so that it often provides a means for artists to reimagine some of their favorite games in this stunning anime universe. With The Last of Us Part II out now, one artist decided to pay tribute to both the sequel and the original game by putting that Ghibli spin on some of our favorite characters. She even created one with Joel, which is great for those still a little salty about the sequel. 

The latest Last of Us nod comes from Korean artist Mincho with her recreating a few key characters from the Naughty Dog franchise in the beloved Ghibili stylization. From Joel and his daughter from the first game to Abby showing off those guns once more (and her pistol), this crossover is perfect for those that aren't quite done gushing about the amazing world created by the folks over at Naughty Dog.
