Where do you take your gaming hardware for custom paint jobs?

Anyone know a good place to custom paint a GBA SP and how much I should expect to pay? It’s hard to play my light blue AGS-101 in public because it looks like a baby sitter. I’m only kidding. But I’d still like to get a smoking hot paint job. Any recommendations, Internet?

After all, we waited two months for the new...

Mounted plasma on the wall, who’s the biggest fan of all?

Over the years, Nintendo fans (especially children of the 80s who were growing up right as the NES was released) have amassed quite the impressive collection of systems, games, controllers, and other peripherals. Some would call this business I’ve got going on here a veritable shrine to gaming greatness. When I got to thinking about it, I realized that I’ve never met another female wit...

If NES games were around $5 on Wii’s Virtual Console, I’m going to take a guess that original black & white Game Boy titles will clock in at $3.

How much would be willing to pay for classic Game Boy titles on the 3DS Virtual Console?

Video: The history of the Game Boy

Although the Game Boy is no longer Nintendo’s best-selling system (that would be DS now), this dated video does a good job highlighting the awesomeness of the Game Boy.
