Here’s a Cyberpunk GameBoy Mask

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 2, 2013 in Design, Videogames


Watch out Daft Punk, your rusty, built-from-scrap arch-nemesis is here, and he’s made from GameBoy parts. THUNDERBOX had a cool art show going on and one of the standout pieces was a life-size and wearable mask made from a GameBoy and other electronics. Along with that there was also a GameBoy-inspired jacket, in which you are the cartridge. The whole combination of fashion and gaming typically isn’t too “savvy,” but THUNDERBOX has some really fantastic and creative stuff, so take a look at more images below of the show, and then visit their site to get some THUNDERBOX in your life.

Show Your iPhone Some 8-Bit Love

Lootiful iPwn!4 Gameboy Case 1

I love my iPhone, but I really wish it had a notch for a phone charm. I suppose a charm might not be the manliest thing, but it always helped me keep track of it whenever I’d have to rummage through my pockets. These days, I go for the next best thing, swapping out cases. I’m not sure how many different iPhone cases I own at this point, but sometimes I just come across one that I absolutely must have, like this sweet little case from the guys at Lootiful. The iPWN! 4 case is a slick little nod to the original GameBoy. It’s made from a thin but durable polycarbonate material that weighs less than an ounce, and the best part? Easy button access. That has to be my number one gripe about any case for the iPhone 4 and they’ve got it covered.

Princes, Frogs, and Bells that Toll

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 13, 2011 in Videogames

Back in the early ’90s Nintendo’s dominance of the handheld market went practically unchallenged. Sega’s Game Gear barely put up a fight while Nintendo gave us entries from popular franchises like Super Mario Land and Metroid.  With that kind of success, you’d think they’d be willing to take a few chances by localizing all their titles, but in 1992 Nintendo released Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, or For the Frog the Bell Tolls — a title that never made its way overseas. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. Thankfully, some dedicated fans have decided to take it upon themselves to localize the game for you. It may be nearly two decades old, but this old gem might be worth firing up your favorite emulator to play.  Developed by the same team that brought us Metroid II and The Legend of Zelda:  Link’s Awakening, For the Frog the Bell Tolls is an action-adventure title with a twist. You play the role of young prince charged with finding the frogs that inhabit a Kingdom and delivering an important message while attempting to save a princess from peril. The game’s humorously-scripted and has some fantastic music, so it’s sure to be at least somewhat entertaining. You can download the patch for the game here, though you’ll have to obtain your own rom and emulator to play it with. If you’d rather just watch the video above, you’ll get a pretty good idea of how the game plays.
