December 7, 2020 - Game Boy Camera Photo Transfering

Gamecube Game Boy Player with Game Boy Camera Gamecube SD Media launcher, Action Replay disc, and SD Card adapter Gamecube Swiss launcher screenshot

To get my photos from the Game Boy Camera to my computer I use the Game Boy Interface software for the Gamecube's Game Boy Player. I run it using the Swiss homebrew launcher. I have the SD Media Launcher which came with an SD card adapter and an Action Replay disc to launch the software. Game Boy Interface allows taking screenshots which can be done in the Game Boy Camera album view to save photos to the SD card. Also Game Boy Interface is wayyyy better than the regular Game boy Player start up disc and is the best way to play Game Boy Color/Advance games on the TV (Super Game Boy 2 is the best way for Game Boy).


November 20, 2020 - Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak

Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak front Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak back Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak inside Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak board close-up Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak resistor before Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak resistor after

The Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak was released in 1997. I never had one back in the day for the N64 but now that I have one I'm really enjoying it. I'm surprised at the ammount of games compatible and the rumble is strong and works well. It takes two "AAA" batteries normally but I modded mine to get power from the controller instead. All you have to do is move a resistor. I did have trouble doing it, my soldering iron is not great. I did order a desoldering pump so next time hopefully it will be an easier and cleaner job.

The Sanyo RP 5115 FM/AM Radio was released in 1985. I really like the look of this radio and it still works well! The battery compartment had a lot of corrosion in it so I scrubbed it as much as I could to clean it and surprisingly it works on batteries. It also came with the AC adapter and works with that too.

Kyogensha ga Yoake wo Tsugeru. Bokutachi ga, Itsumademo Damatteiruto Omouna. (虚言者が夜明けを告げる。僕達が、いつまでも黙っていると思うな。) by Harukatomiyuki (ハルカトミユキ) was released on November 14, 2012. The title translates to "A Liar Announces The Daybreak. I Think We'll Remain Silent Forever.". The artist and mini-album are important to me and there are really beautiful and special songs in here. My favorite tracks are 1, 3, and 5.


October 29, 2020 - Blip: The Digital Game

Blip was released in 1977 by Tomy. It is a fully mechanical pong game. The game is powered by winding up the timer dial; batteries only power the red LED. The game has a 1 or 2 player mode and is pretty challenging; you have to be fast to push the correct button.

Guitar Hero: On Tour was released on June 22, 2008 for the Nintendo DS. It came with an attachment required to play the game. This game is pretty interesting and I think the accessory that plugs into the DS's Game Boy Advance slot is innovative. It's my first Guitar Hero game and i'm not very good at it but I think it's really fun; need a lot of practice though. I also have the themed Nintendo DS lite.

These are a really nice collection of Game & Watch games for the Game Boy and Game Boy Color. They each contain a modern and classic version of each game. You get a star for every 200 points collected and the stars unlock more games and stuff in the gallery section. These games have really nice Super Game Boy compatibility with color graphics and borders based off the actual Game & Watch handheld.

Yamikawa IMRAD (やみかわIMRAD) is the first album by Zenbu Kimi no Sei da (ぜんぶ君のせいだ) and released on January 27, 2016. They are my favorite idol group and their style is a mixure of genres like pop and rock; they sometimes add screaming vocals in songs which I enjoy. My favorite tracks are 1 and 10.


September 1, 2020 - Nintendo Super Scope

Nintendo Super Scope Nintendo Super Scope Nintendo Super Scope Nintendo Super Scope box Nintendo Super Scope box inside

The Super Nintendo's Super Scope was released in 1992 for North America and Europe, and 1993 for Japan. I kinda like the NES Zapper more because the Super Scope is a little too large and sucks up 6 "AA" batteries. The Super Scope is wireless and more accurate though.

Super Scope 6 Super Scope 6 Super Scope 6

Super Scope 6 was a pack-in game with 2 games included (each with 3 modes). I played Blastris and didn't really like it. LazerBlazer was much better, you shot missles as they came across the screen, the screenshot shows my score.

Yoshi's Safari Yoshi's Safari Yoshi's Safari

Yoshi's Safari is mario's only first-person shooter game. It's really nice looking and fun, I beat 2 levels. In the screenshot level 1 is replaced by a gem meaning it is beaten. After collecting all 12 gems and beating Bowser the game is complete.

Battle Clash (Space Bazooka) Battle Clash (Space Bazooka)

Battle Clash (Space Bazooka in Japan) is a mecha shooter. I guess i'm terrible at this one, could not beat the first enemy. I didn't like it.

Tsukiakari no Seini Shite (月明かりのせいにして) is aquarifa's 2nd mini album released on July 10, 2013. They are a three member Japanese rock band fronted by a female vocalist. I really like how the cover art is made up of a transparent circle lined up with the lyric booklit to make a moon. The moon themed CD art is awesome too! My favorite track is number 8, switch.

Milton Bradley Comp IV Milton Bradley Comp IV Milton Bradley Comp IV Milton Bradley Comp IV Milton Bradley Comp IV

The Milton Bradley Comp IV came out in 1977. It's a really cool number guessing game where you guess the 3, 4, or 5 digit number generated by the device. It runs off a 9 volt battery and includes 10 LED's to tell you how close your guess is. You first press "R" to generate a number. Your first guess decides the number of digits and you press "E" to enter each guess. The first column "number" tells you how many numbers match and the second "sequence" tells you how many in the correct order. All the lights flash after a correct guess and you can press "E" to have another person try and "R" to generate another number.

This is a 0-35% Brix Refractometer. This device measures Brix which is the sugar content of a liquid solution. 1 Brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of solution. This is an old analog meter made in Poland. I've checked the accuracy of it with a couple sugar samples of different Brix and callibrated it with water and it works perfectly. It's really cool and could be useful comparing sugar content in different brands of juice or fruit.
