Games "The Super Game Boy is probably the coolest piece of video game hardware in existence. It's also probably the biggest wasted opportunity in video games. It's been pretty much entirely forgotten about now, because - as is pretty common with neat hardware made by Nintendo - very, VERY few games ever really took advantage of it at all. And it's a shame, because the unique visual style of Super Game Boy-compatible games, in addition to just looking really neat, can teach a lot about effectively using colour in games. The ones that do work exist in a really bizarre stylistic place."

If you wish to close yourself off from things that use perfectly valid English in a perfectly appropriate manner, then that is very much your loss.

Having just finished the entire series of article, he is perfectly eloquent, and the phrase "Fuck the Super Game Boy" is entirely appropriate for the sentiment he is trying to convey (not his own, mind you) in the final paragraph of the final article.

D'oh, I'm a moron. Should have just looked at the sidebar or the byline, but was being so very very lazy ;)

You read it all and didn't notice it's "she", not "he"? ;)

Yep, I generally just ignore the sidebars, and only read the article content, which, as I recall, did say anything like "when I was a little girl".

As I was writing the comment I did think "Wait, is this guy or a girl" but didn't actually care enough to ctrl-tab to find out (most of the time I bother doing that it ends up being a gender neutral name anyway with an arty picture that leaves me none-the-wiser)

I really am too lazy for my own good
