I went to Gothenburg this last weekend to visit some friends of mine, and I received a belated birthday gift from a dear friend of mine <3 Something I’ve been looking for for quite some time now actually! A Game & Watch! Donkey Kong II!
Except for some scratches on the top and a little orange sticker on the bottom it’s in quite good condition ^_^
It’s Multi Screen and super pretty! I used to have an old orange one, the first Donkey Kong for Game & Watch, it was my brothers, but it disappeared :(
Now I just need to go find some batteries so I can play it :D
And if this wasn’t enough I also got a Game Boy Color brand new in original box :D
This is actually the only Game Boy console I didn’t previously own (except for the 3DS, which I will get eventually). I thought about buying a Game Boy Color several times, but never did, cause I could always play those games on the GBA. So now I’m really happy to finally have one in my collection :D
It’s so cool how the game and watch looks just like the ds, that’s obviously where they got their inspiration :D I have the game and watch games on the gameboy and the gameboy advance but I’ve never actually played a real one.
haha it does! ^^ if you come visit me here I’ll let you try it ;D
Wow, keep those friends close! It doesn’t get much better than birthday Game & Watches!
it sure doesn’t ^_^
Ah, the Game Boy Colour, I still have my original one and I still play it from time to time. It’s got some great games!
It does, which are your favorites? My library to the color is smaller than my Game Boy and Game Boy Advance, so I appreciate any suggestions on some must-haves ^_^
Basically any platformers for it are great, I played a lot of the port of Donket Kong Country back in the day. It was a fairly decent comparison to the SNES version. Zelda Oracle of Seasons and Ages was great too!
I have Donkey Kong country 1,2 and 3 for the GBA, that should be the same game right? I love collecting and I would love to have like complete collections for each console, but I don’t really find it necessary to buy the same game for different platforms if I already have it, unless there is a significant difference in it experience wise.. ^^
Never really gotten into the Zelda games.. I just couldn’t finish the first one, which pissed me off, so I have sort of boycotted the rest of them as well haha ^_^ is the “oracle” games rpgs or platformers mainly?
DKC should be the same if you have them. As for Oracle, it’s an RPG, it’s the only Zelda I’ve ever invested any time into, like you, I kind of boycotted them too :P
haha great ^_^
I’m just not that into RPGs at all.. they are just too time consuming :( and I don’t have that time..
I remember those Game & Watch devices. I never knew what they were called. That’s a seriously good gift! It must be very old and it’s in excellent shape. Is there a year printed on it?
I also never had a game boy color (still don’t). Still have my DS Lite and maybe 30 boxes games! :P
Your new boxed GB Color is also an awesome score. It must be very hard to find them so pristine!
I use to think I added a lot of new games to my collection frequently but your pace is fast and furious! :)
Yes! On the back it says 1983, and made in Japan ^_^
My friend who gave it to me used to work as the boss for club nintendo in Sweden, so he has quite a lot of pristine stuff in his own collection ^_^ He also gave me a brand new Zelda for the SNES once! :D
haha I know, it’s not good for my economy, but it’s so ADDICTIVE!!!! >_<
I sold my sister’s G&W, same model, a few years ago. I had Zelda. Thought I’d throw them away at first.
I like my GBC consoles. Most people prefer GBAs, but I think they are a bit uncomfortable.
I would say there are maybe 20 good games for GBC. I recently completed Bomberman Max , and that was quite alright.
Keep on buying ;) I have bills to pay ;)
woah! you should NEVER throw ANYTHING away! It’s always worth something to someone ^_^
The orange stickers originally came with the game & watch with a note saying “Place this seal over battery cover to prevent babies from removing and eating battery”.
Really?! Wow that’s some pretty awesome facts ^_^ I had no idea :D
This is how it looked: http://media.photobucket.com/image/recent/alberries/stick1.jpg
That is so cool! Thanks for sharing this information! :D
