    Does anyone else have this system? I just bought it last week. I am impressed by the graphics on it. It's a huge improvement over the original Game Boy.

    It's the first new system that i've bought in years, so I am excited to be buying new games for it. So far I have bought Street Fighter Alpha 3 and X-Men Reign Of Apocalypse. Both are cool, I like SF the best though. What are other cool games for it?

    I really dig this little system. Like a portable SNES with better graphics. Takes me right back to the good ol' days. Haven't played many games, but Golden Sun and Mario Kart are early faves of mine. And of course, all these re-releases of SNES classics like Zelda: A Link to the Past just kick ass.

    My oldest has one coming for his birthday tomorrow ( [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img] ) but I'm not as impressed as I thought I once was - I thought when I first saw one it was backlit, but looking at another one recently I saw they are not and just as hard to see as the Gameboy Color.
    While searching for a Gameboy Color game for my youngest the other day, it reminded me of the same way Nintendo treated the original, uh, Nintendo in that once they moved up to a newer system, all the games for the original dried up - what do they think, everybody's gonna throw out their Gameboy Color now that Advance is available? Schmucks.

    I was disappointed that it wasn't backlit, too. It's a pain in the ass, but I'm sure it would eat batteries. I like that it was made backwards-compatible and you can play all of the old GameBoy games on it. There's a 3rd party company out there somewhere that will upgrade it to a backlighted system for around $50 but I can't remember who it was.

    Nintendo's coming out with an attachment that lets you play the GBA throught the GameCube this Spring for around $40.00. You'll be able to program the GameCube controller to play the GBA games.

    After a few years of telling my son, "No way!" when it came to him asking for one (he already owns a Gameboy Color and buttload of games), I finally broke down and bought him one. It's been surgically attached to his hands since Christmas morning. He has 4 games for it, "Dragon Ball Z", "Yu-Gui-Oh", "Godzilla: Domination", and some new "Star Wars" game he bought last week.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    I agree with you that it should come with a light. It's very hard to see sometimes. It would be nice if you could play it in the dark too. I like the fact that you can play the old Game Boy games on it though. I have about twenty games for the original Game Boy that I can play on it. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I'll buy it just for the novelty/nostalgia/cool technology factor when they release a version with either a backlight, or an OLED screen (which doesn't require a backlight, and therefore consumes considerably less power, even though it's considerably brighter than a lit LCD screen.

    It might be a year or two away, though.
