      Ah yes the two-tone Nintendo we thought we had it made using the GameLink between the other Gameboy to challenge each other in tetris or Mario. Then there was an evil present GameBoy Color. Man that made many mad. I remember seeing the display in the store and staring at the cable going how in the hell is that connected to a tv? Where do I buy this cable to do that?
