Not a whole lot at this moment.

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection
Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Freedom Planet 2 console release
Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2
Oddventure (I'm not even sure if this game's console releases are still in development since they're still listed as 2022)
Plumbers Don't Wear Ties re-release (Again, I'm not sure what the status of this game is since it is/was listed as 2022)

Other than those six games, I'm hoping for a little more information on Dragon Quest III's 2D-HD remake and Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate this year.

Hardware and Tech / Re: Mystery GBA SP EXT.2 cable
« on: December 22, 2022, 10:21:01 pm »
I'm almost 100% positive that cable came with this accessory: https://www.amazon.com/Pelican-Accessories-DS-Battery-Charger-Nintendo/dp/B0009SRZ7Y
I used to have this exact accessory (or something like it) and what you did was you plugged your DS charger into the battery pack charger, and it came with a male to male-cable-that connected from the battery pack charger to the DS so you could charge a battery in the dock and the internal one in the DS at the same time. The amazon customer reviews on this product are a bit vague, but they seem to echo this sentiment. If I recall it didn't work very well, but I haven't had the item since 2007 or 2008, so it's been a long time at this point.

EDIT
Someone is selling one on Facebook Marketplace: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/8211408898932475/
It has a picture of the back of the box showing that it came with the male-to-male cable for DS/GBA SP
Wasn't expecting to find the answer so quickly! Thanks!

Hardware and Tech / Mystery GBA SP EXT.2 cable
« on: December 20, 2022, 11:50:42 pm »
Went to a Goodwill and looked through their bin of assorted cables on Monday and I found what looks like a link cable for a GBA SP. I'm specifically saying GBA SP since both ends of the cable have the same type of connector that the charging cable and headphone jack adapter have that go into the SP/original DS's EXT.2 port. It can't be for link cable stuff since the EXT.2 port isn't wired for that, just power and audio. I thought that maybe it could act as a sort of jumper cable to use another GBA SP to power your GBA SP as dumb and pointless as that'd be, but I got no reaction from either of my SPs when I plugged the cable into both. Looking at a pinout for the EXT.2 port doesn't seem to help much. This cable has four pins: detecting headphones, one side of audio, 5.2V power, and ground. Both ends have the same pins. Does anyone have any ideas what the purpose of this cable is? Does some other electronic device happen to have the exact same port as the GBA SP/DS?

Thanks to a sale and two different discounts, I was able to get a Galactic Purple PS5 controller for $36 from Meijer. Given that PS5 controllers go for like $70+, that's pretty good.

I would like to get more Virtual Boy, Sega CD, and 32X games but so many of them have gone way up in price. I happened to find a Nuon at a Goodwill a few years ago but their is no chance in hell I'm getting a game for that thing with how prices are. All of those young adults nostalgic for the popular and beloved Nuon I guess :P

Hardware and Tech / Re: Game Boy Micro Questions
« on: May 31, 2022, 08:42:03 pm »
Update: I ended up getting a third party battery; a 750 mAh high capacity one by Makho since it seemed to have the best reviews. It was pretty easy to insert into the micro after shaving two tabs on the side off with a box cutter blade, but putting the battery cover back on was/is more of a pain than I was expecting. With the wires folded and the foam on the underside of the battery cover removed, the battery cover still doesn't want to fit quite as nicely as it did with the stock battery. I know it's because this replacement battery is about 1.5mm thicker, but woof. Anyway, the Micro turns on and seems to be working fine.

Still don't have a Micro link cable, but whatever. I'll just stick to one of the other GBA models for the rare times I need to link consoles.
