Nintendo's portable systems, a review. Pt. 2 - The Game Boy Advance

Posted on 07/18/2019 at 02:43 PM | Filed Under Blogs

I have the original in red. I remember that it was difficult to see in many conditions and I went out and bought some unwieldy light thing for it. I probably still have that in the basement too.

Yeah the one problem with detailed headphones when listening to vinyl is that they are very unforgiving of flaws in the media. Minor clicks and pops that are not audible when listening through speakers are easy to detect with the HD 599's. Not so it detracts from the music but they are there.

Having them has prompted me to go through all of my newly purchased vinyl to see how they sound. 

My biggest disappointment so far has been the newly reissued half speed master of Japan's Gentlemen take Polaroids. It's on two records that play at 45 RPM. Remastered on 180 gram vinyl

Listened to side one through the headphones and the noise is awful during quieter passages. It clicks and pops away like one of my 40 year old albums. Louder parts mask it but it is still there. Very annoying.

Switching to side 4 and it's almost totally clean.

I'm sure I have a Game Boy, and a Game Boy Advance (original version) squirreled away somewhere. I didn't play them much but my kids did.

B2, Disney Afternoon Collection, DQB2 and Meet the Robinsons

I've been playing DQ Builders 2 a lot these last few days. It's a lot of fun but the frequent Monster raids on the farm (felt like every 10 minutes) and the ghost who shows up at night if you stay up instead of sleeping can be frustrating. I don't know how many times I've had to rebuild my front wall.

I am running 2 Micro SD Cards (1 at a time of course) in my Switch. a 400 GB which is pretty much full and a 512 GB that I just started filling up a few weeks back.

My Prime pick ups were a pair of Sennheiser 599 SE open back headphones that I am listening to right now and they are great.

I also picked up a box set of all the Simon and Garfunkel albums on vinyl. I've played the GH album through my 599's earlier tonight and it sounds fantastic. 1 minor skip on side 2 but otherwise completely free of any noise except the music.

I decided to skip Mario Maker because I'm not into building levels. I never built a level in Little Big Planet either. Just no interest. Dragon Quest Builders 2 on the other hand I will play the heck out of. I'm still waiting for the first one to drop in price on Switch. I have it for Vita but that isn't getting much play anymore.

I picked up DQ Builders 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses digitally using the new coupon deals. Yes in Canada it's $132 CAD plus 13% tax in Ontario (that's around 150 all in) but if I bought both of them at retail they'd cost me about $188 (tax included) so I do save some money.

I think I want Astral Chain too but I'll wait.

The God Eater 3 demo was a waste of time.

those are both on my radar however I may go with Astral Chain first and maybe Fire Emblem later.

I keep buying Fire Emblem games, playing them for a couple of hours and then quitting. I traded in 3 3DS FE games because of that and I never trade in games.

It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one here that I have this game on 3DS, Wii U and my SNES Mini. Also that I've played about an hour of it total. I know I should remedy that but never got around to it.
