Thought I would share something cool that I ordered online. I never realized that something like this existed until recently when I was on ebay. It’s the SGB Commander! What’s that you ask, it’s a controller made specifically for the Super Game Boy. The awesome thing is that you can use it on the Super Famicom or on the Super Nintendo since the controllers aren’t system specific.

The A and B buttons are in the exact same spot as on the Game Boy, but if you look above that you will see buttons that are specific to the Super Game Boy like Window, Color, Speed and even a Mute button. So now you don’t need to go into the menu to change your colors or frame, you just hit the button. You can speed up or slow down the speed of your game so if you are stuck on a part in your game you can slow it down a bit to help you get through it. The addition of a mute button is pretty neat, though I’m not totally sure how much you would use it. The one thing that I really like about this controller is that it’s a little bit thicker than your usual Super Nintendo controller, but not quite as thick as a Game Boy. It definitely feels a lot more like you are playing the game right on your Game Boy though which is awesome.

I’m a girl gamer who still feels like she’s 14, and just happens to be a wife and the mother. I’m also mom to awesome kitties! I grew up playing classic Nintendo with my dad and brother and I’ve been hooked on games ever since then. I’ve owned every single Nintendo console with the exception of the Virtual Boy, and discovered the Famicom and Super Famicom. I have a large gaming room in my basement and a huge collection of retro games and Nintendo paraphernalia including a lot of awesome plushies, and action figures. Besides gaming I love to draw and paint, especially 8 bit and pixel video game characters! I’m also a huge fan of game themed tattoos and I have two of my own, a Princess Peach from Paper Mario on my ribs and a tattoo of Mega Man and a paintbrush on my right forearm! I own my own website and blog at retrogamergirl.com so be sure to check it out for lots of awesome retro game goodness and follow me on twitter @retrogamergirls
