The retro video game collecting bubble – are we closer to one at this point?
Gaming Historian gives the complete history of the Virtual Boy. Released in 1995 by Nintendo, the Virtual Boy was supposed to change video games. Instead, it became one of the worst selling consoles of all time.
The Virtual Boy system uses a pair of 1×224 linear arrays (one per eye) and rapidly scans the array across the eye’s field of view using flat oscillating mirrors. These mirrors vibrate back and forth at a very high speed, thus the mechanical humming noise from inside the unit. Each Virtual Boy game cartridge has a yes/no option to automatically pause every 15–30 minutes so that the player may take a break.
In this review, we take a look at Owlboy. Very very minor spoilers in the form of gameplay and visuals. This adventure-platformer was absolutely worth the decade long wait.

WatchMojo highlighted us: Hello and welcome to TopX, where we count down the very best of YouTube. Today we’re donning our vintage gaming T-shirts and plugging in our SNESes to bring you the top 10 Retro Gaming YouTube Critics.
These fine channels and hosts have been selected based on a number of different factors, including subscriber counts, monthly views and personal preference. We do have to limit the list to channels that mainly deal with retro gaming and that are English-speaking; thus, we must unfortunately exclude the likes of The Game Theorists and Joueur du grenier.
