RetroGameTech: That's awesome! I love remixed VGM and this is an epic track! Glad you don't object to me using it in this video :) .
Keep up the good work yourself! :)
Nitro Game Injection: Hey, thanks for spotlighting this tune! I was actually the director of the Super Dodge Ball OC ReMix album, so it's great to hear someone use a track from it. I love that you use a lot of remixed VGM in your videos, and you and Luke Morse have actually kind of inspired me to do more work on console hardware over the past few months. Keep up the great work, man!
RetroGameTech: Granted! XD
dragonballZfreak199: promission to head bang???
WalterAlbiSheva7: retrogametech very great video
MrCDSmiles: wow never realized how good the gameboy micro looks.
RetrogamerTim: Cool man! What a radical difference between the two sp's!!!!
Charlotte Woolley: I second on the GB Micro, I loved their little screen looked perfect, I agree on the shoulder button placement though, didn't feel as natural on the SP. I didn't know the backlit screen was so good on the 101, I've still yet to find one hunting around bootsales. One day, I will enjoy Tetris when I can properly see it!
haidawe123: Oh mines the 001 that's why it looks weird.
Will Denny: Can you please do gaming setup
MasterKOfficial: nice video. my favorite is the GB Micro
shadowtsunami: @RetroGameTech Happy Thanksgiving! from the US!
GreenJanuary: woah, huge difference between back and front lit.
ryanc519: where did you get the 101?
mikrobotmen: ive tried it once. but never succeeded. i my self is using an afterburner for my agb
mikrobotmen: imho the ags 101 is the best gameboy of all the line up. its stay true to the original gameboy buttons layout. nice backlite. big library of games. as it is backwards compatible. clamp shell design so that the screen wont get scratch during storage. the biggest con is it doesnt have an internal phone jack. other than that its the ultimate gameboy from nintendo. cheers.
DaveSimonH: Reminds me of when I had my old Original release DS running against my DS lite, its amazing how much better the games look.
HaxAras Jaramillo: It's In The Description.
Sillyzombie666: i still need to grab a gba micro its the only gameboy i dont own except for the gameboy light
f16madlion: Have you ever tried modding the original shape GBA? Has the best layout of all imo. I modded a front light(from a GBA SP) onto one, but what i really want to know is if its possible to put the 101 a back light or screen into the original shape game boy Advance, any plans to poke around with that? :)
Consoletronix: wow, i need to get me one of those 101s
RetroGameTech: I'd probably have to agree. GBA games look amazing on the smaller Micro screen. The resolution just seems to fit perfectly and the screen is very colourful + bright with no ghosting. The only negative of the Micro for me is the position of the shoulder buttons. I find them kinda tricky to use. I use the SP for games that make a lot of use of those buttons since the SP has a perfect layout IMO :).
KieranD212: I quite liked the Gameboy Advancce Micro and even the DS lite did a decent job, surprised me a little.
TheUnbiasedGamer: All the backlit ones seem to look the same except the screen size. The ags 101 looks nice It's got the good backlight with a good sized screen. I hate small screens because it's hard to see anything like that.
Gamerzwarz: hey retrogametech are you partnered because if your not you should be
Polaventris: Great video. Makes it clear why one should try to get the 101 instead of the original 001.
KingofPho75: can u do a vid on how to fix a broken gba micro screen. mine works but i need a new screen.
Padoca85: GBMicro has the best screen ever, too bad it doesnt play GB games
iGuruRevolution: Rally liked the video, I think it would have been better to have had the same game in the AGS 001 and AGS 101 at the same time (I am sure you must have a copy of at least ONE game) :D but if you didnt then no big deal.
Could you respond and let me know the track name -- it was epic!!!!
John Broughton: The AGS-101 is the best device for GB/GBC/GBA games, no contest.
paulink: That music was amazing, love me some ocremix <3
TimeTeam1982: Fantastic vids also other than ebayuk where can I get a replacement micro face
TimeTeam1982: I so want to get one of those backlit ones
Masticina Akicta: It was worth getting the 101 model even though I already owned a 001 model. Seriously a Backlit LCD + Front Lit... wooo! And yes it wasn't cheap :!
David Gallacher: I did a similar demo the other day to show a guy at uni the difference, I had forgotten about our near identical micros though, lol
RetroGameTech: *real time*
RetroGameTech: I hear what you're saying but if I filmed them separately then the 001 would look artificially bright and the 101 artificially dark. This way both are shown side by side in real with identical room lighting and camera settings. This is genuinely what they look like side by side in real life. I know it's not perfect but hopefully the video as a whole gives people a good idea of what all these GBA versions look like side by side :) .
a3HeadedMonkey: Micro ftw!
shenmueso: wait a sec, is this a fair video? i mean if you put the 101 right next to the 001, isnt it going to adjust your cameras light balance so that the 001 looks artificially dark? i mean i know its crap compared to the 101 but you should have filmed them separately imo.
skinyme: Backlit makes a lot of difference
shenmueso: ok, paused to comment straight away.. this video is like TAILOR MADE FOR ME! lol
i am back in the market for a handheld and have recently been talkin to an ebay seller who advised me on which screen is best if im going to invest! lol
ok, now to watch..
