  1. My entire industry, hell, multiple industries related to each other, are shut down until at least August, if not the end of the year. There are genuine worries about having hundreds of people working in close proximity together in multiple industrial locations, which have never had the best hygiene in the first place due to terrible access and operating cleanliness in the first place. Luckily, we have a pretty robust and reliable unemployment system here in Canada, plus that CERB program for people that don't necessarily qualify for EI. Mostly, I've been playing games, and just staying home all day. I'm not in a quarantine situation, and my province is pretty low on the infection rate, but that's because people have been distancing and isolating themselves like they were asked to. Most stores are either limiting the number of people allowed in at once, or offer curb-side pickup for online orders. Some places are shut down, like my favorite Japanese place down the road. I'm hoping they're surviving through this. Small independent places like that don't have the corporate money backing them up during times like this. I was experimenting with some customized GameBoy shells to replace the more damaged and roughed up original ones I have... but everywhere that sells the higher quality shells are shut down, and the ones that aren't are shipping from... China. I don't know how well corona virus survives during shipping, but I'm not going to risk it. I'll wait until a regional seller for parts reopens than wait weeks or months for it to get through the mess that is international shipping. So it looks like my plans to make some (hopefully) really awesome customized GameBoys is on hold for at least a few mote months. Until then, I will just have to shelf the whole project. Until then... I guess... maybe hit up the rolling machine in the living room more often? I got the time and boredom. Might as well do something rather than kill the entire day watching random things on YouTube.
  2. Good ol' halc. This would be perfect for a mini-album. In fact, this makes me want more GameBoy remixes in general.
  3. Your website is a casino site?

    Spam bot?

  4. There are the two volumes of Prescription For Sleep Game Music Lullabies, which has a total of 20 songs from Final Fantasy games, Chrono Trigger, Duck Tales, Shovel Knight, Elder Scrolls, Donkey Kong, Mario, even one from Metal Gear Solid 3. It's entirely piano and sax, but it might work. There's also the various music box style video game music you can find on youtube. For example:
  5. Am I the only one that thinks the Totoro theme: and the Great Cave Escape from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse: Sound pretty similar? Specifically, from 0:45 and on? Never noticed it until today. I'm sure it's been pointed out before but I can't find anyone that has mentioned it before.
  6. Yeah, I picked a cart up earlier this year and it's got a nice theme. Second'd.
  7. Not even going to try listening to it first, just going to download it right away. That list of remixers alone is good enough.
  8. Jesus christ with a flamethrower, please burn that trailer, and that movie, with fire. Also, using Gangster's Paradise is... at least three kinds of wrong.
  9. Maaaaaaaybe slightly cautiously hopeful that it won't be as bad as I originally thought it might be. Maybe.
  10. $130 US is like, $170 CAN these days. That's a bit above my budget for games. But any way. GameBoy. 30 years.
  11. https://krikzz.com/store/home/46-everdrive-gb.html https://stoneagegamer.com/everdrive-gb-x7-base.html https://www.amazon.com/EverDrive-GB-Ultimate-version-Nintendo-Game-Color/dp/B074YJ7VSN Goes from $130 to $190, so... not quite multiple hundreds, but pretty damn close.
  12. I've been looking into one of those, but holy fuck, the good carts are really expensive, and the cheaper carts are not recommended.
  13. God damn Mega Man... who uses a calendar with with variable years?
  14. Since it is now April 21st in Japan (see, proof the Earth isn't flat. fight me!), that means the GameBoy is now 30 years old. It's been a long, fun ride for those of us that kept our GameBoys and games. Speaking of... https://imgur.com/F9L0DwV https://imgur.com/uBfspSV https://imgur.com/TUmtKAT Here's hoping Nintendo gets around to releasing a GameBoy Classic console, in the vein of the NES and SNES Classics.
