    I wonder if this is a regular thing with Game Boy games. Or is it the doing of the Super Game Boy?

    such a shame that the game didn’t work, hope there’s something you can do to fix it!

    • February 22, 2016 at 3:22 am

      They probably just need to clean the contacts on the cartidge or the super gameboy.

    Oddly they didn’t seem to know about this in the video, but all of the Super Game Boy borders have special effects and animations if you lave the game idle for a little while. It’s actually really cool. Like the house-and-sign backgrouns a light turns on, and the scene shifts from day to night, and stuff like that.

    A game i used to play so much and now i have to watch two people who can barley play the nes version… lol

    That cartridge probably had several game colors data for the classic gb games, like the gb color. Like Kirby would be pink, Samus red.

      Metroid II btw is definitely among my favorite games/metroid. That one used to scare me as a kid. It was in a sense my initiation to horror games haha..

  • February 22, 2016 at 6:49 am

    Oh man, I wish I had known about this when I was a kid! Looks like fun if the games would actually work.

    “Well that was pretty fucking disappointing.” And so was this entire video. James, if this is all you’re planning to do in 2016, then plan on seeing your numbers drop in viewership. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, this shit is fucking BORING! You guys are in your 30s, and yet you act like you’re 12 still. You’re supposed to be a filmmaker, James. So go make some actual films. Get back to AVGN, or come up with something new. I honestly don’t care at this point, but these James & Mike Mondays just show how friggin’ lazy you’ve become since the AVGN movie. I understand being burned out, but it’s been awhile, so you can’t use that as a crutch anymore. So please, get on with real filmmaking. Abandon this shit series, cause it’s not going to keep your fanbase around.

      Spare us your douchey comments. You don’t have to watch these videos if you don’t like them.

      @TwistedSpeech How do you know James is not working on his next film project right now?

      This episode of JMM was obviously filmed a little while back. That’s probably in part to clear time for James, among other things, to plan and work on bigger upcoming projects. Get over yourself.

      He doesn’t have to do fucking shit.

      I love these videos. There’s nothing better. Seeing two friends explore the joys of life and our existence just talking, laughing, philosophizing, and having a good time is what its all about. It’s a privilege that they’d share their life and friendship (and time) for us. I love these guys and spending unrehearsed time with them is the best thing they could share with us.

      Some of them are good some are crap, I see J&Mm as time filler to be honest.
      This one was kind of crap since we spent 12 minutes watching Mike draw etcha sketch then the game didnt work. I can only assume that lead to 45 minutes of off camera gay love making.
      Either way, I wouldnt get so vested in this.

      People being negative for negativity’s sake is trolling. Yet, this person airs a legitimate grievance about a noticeable decline in skillfully produced, scripted content. He/She Probably could’ve been less abrasive and more tactful, but what’s wrong with having standards?

      I agree 100 percent. These videos suck. Nothing fun about watching to guys playing video games.. To those that watch this crap regularly. Get real friends and play retro games with them.. Kinda pathetic that people think of them as friends because in reality they dont give a fuck about any of us…. Avgn is done. No more passion.. The movie sucked… Board james is kinda amusing still

    Just picked up a Super game boy recently. Backwards combatabuility and it makes these games look much better on a T.V. Monitor.

      buy an ouya

        Never heard of it. I’ll check it out.

      • Grandmasterp

        February 22, 2016 at 8:44 pm

        Kind of sounds like ouija board, and I don’t fuck around with that shit.

    I’m getting a message that says “Error loading skin: Crossdomain loading denied.” This has never happened before, and the Metroid II video works fine.

    I always wondered why SEGA never made something like the SuperGameboy for their
    Sega Game Gear games..

    I don’t have mine to hand to check, but if I remember correctly, the Super Gameboy 2 has the original Gameboy’s greenish colour scheme as onr of its default palettes. It also has a link cable port and plays at the correct speed instead of 4% faster.

    Also, regarding faulty cartridges, 99% of the time the contacts are dirty. Just rub some slightly damp q-tips across them until they’re clean. Then they’ll work as good as new.

    Gotta love them American Movie quotes: “Do they smoke and have cigarettes up in Heaven? I don’t think so… I don’t think so.”

    Fuck this game. Please review this garbage.

  • March 14, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    I remember really wanting a Super Gameboy when I was younger, but could never find one.
