Nerdy Show 264 :: Microsode: Drunk Game Boy History

Posted by NerdyShow on June 8, 2016

Gameboy History Play it LoudWhen The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into the super-specific with listener-requested discussions and interviews.

In this episode, we pay tribute to the undisputed king of handheld gaming, the Nintendo Game Boy, by chronicling nearly 30 years of Game Boy history. The catch? These amateur video game historians are drunk! From the system’s humble prehistory as the Game & Watch, to its legendary “chunky” years, and beyond; we discuss its storied legacy and myriad iterations.

Join Cap, Brandon, Arkais, La Valle, and Friday Night Fanfiction/ Overclocked Remix‘s Stevo aka Level99 over drinks. Arkais has brought along his massive collection of Game Boys and accessories, not to mention Kalua – so you know this is a party. We share not just the system’s history, but our own personal stories with Game Boy, including some too horrible to even hint at here. Plus Stevo lends his expertise as a game music remixer to share what’s so special about Game Boy’s chipset and how it birthed chiptunes. All this and more, thanks to Hugh O’Donnell – the Nerdy Show fan who requested this topic.

Play it loud, bitches.
