    MKBHD fried a Game Boy with an actual flamethrower almost a dozen times and the fckin thing still worked, but they barely jammed in the cartridge, the plastic was all deformed... It was burning with open flames coming out but still worked...

    One of my favorite AVGN episodes. Crazy how many accessories were made for the game boy. I got a game boy for Christmas way back right when they came out and I felt so cool having one. They were so huge back then. And rightfully so. The original game boy was a revolution in video gaming.

    I would probably make a kinetic charge module with detachable light, magnifying glass, and some other things, they'd be small, like the NUBY amps. It'd also have a capacitor that connected to the DC input, which powered the addons and gb. By kinetic charge module, I mean like one of those flashlights where you turn the handle to charge it

    i feel like some of this videos elements and accessories were taken from this video and used in MKBHD Gameboy documentary and the accessories they picked specifically was due to them watching this video, James Rolfe should have been included in his video and at least have his name mentioned in his video, he really knew more about the game boy than some of the other people that were interviewed in his docu-video.

    😂😂😂 i love this episode so much.
    my english isnt that good you want to read it, so pls translate.
    4 aa Batterien waren einfach nicht ausreichend, um das Display zu beleuchten.
    Dafür konnte man Ewigkeiten spielen, indem man nach und nach den Kontrast verringert hat.
    Ich hab zuletzt nachts mit einer Taschenlampe im Mund Pokemon Blau gespielt.
    Einmal ist mir das Teil sogar in die Badewanne gefallen, man ließ es trocknen, der Gameboy funktioniert bis heute.
    Und wenn ich heute, meinen ersten Gameboy bekam ich 1988/89, meine Eltern besuche, liegt dieser Gameboy immernoch im Badezimmer mit Warioland und es ist immer wieder eine Wonne zu zocken.
