No Batteries Needed - the blog where I'm playing every game boy game in alphabetical order

In 2013 I got a PSP and hacked it, then put the entire Game Boy library onto it. The firmware I was using for the PSP had a method for taking screenshots, and that gave me an idea: what if I took screenshots of every GB game and did a writeup of it?

This might have been my first “what if I set the least achievable goal and then earnestly pursue it” moment. Also I was really obsessed with a blog called “So you want to be an Arcade Champion?” where this guy was playing all of the games with scores in Twin Galaxies in A-Z order to see if he could get a high score. It ruled.

So basically I stole the format and started writing blog entries. Here’s how it went:


Yeah, not very well TBH. But I’m back on this train thanks to the FunKey S and RG351V and rolling into Victory.

Anyway instead of posting these every time in the writing thread, I’m just making a different thread. Because I think these are really good and funny and anyone who disagrees can eat it.

I finished a new one…yesterday?

Yeah that was yesterday. And I bought which is a really good domain name.

Also also I got an email thing going too, so you can get an email whenever I post.

The site looks terrible on mobile because it’s fucking Blogger, but hopefully I’ll get something better looking going on soon.

I’m not switching from Blogger though, jesus.

Okay that’s all bye


By the way, I did the math and at the current rate of posting the project will be finished on:

Hoping to speed up just a tad though.


I’ll race you to the end of our respective platforms :smiling_imp:


There’s some guy I saw on Twitch who was finishing up playing I think it was the entire (English-only probably) Genesis library. I think it took him several thousand hours, but you should be able to do it if you can keep on trucking without getting sick of it. Color, too?

Wow I haven’t thought about Akazukin Cha Cha for a long time. Used to watch fansubs of that in like 2001, and it was better than it should have been.

Be sure to remember ‘Cave Noir’ - a real great Rougelike (even has a patch - English) should you be so inclined…
