Nothing, least of all your giant Game Boy, is inviolable

I get the feeling TGS is probably about to happen, because a disproportionate number of people I know are suddenly in Japan.

I am a total sucker for photoblogs, and Chris Kohler’s Tokyo blog does not disappoint. Below, I’ve pasted the photo that made me laugh like a 10-year old. In it, Chris—ordinarily an upstanding citizen—is poking a giant Game Boy, which itself is clearly labeled “Do Not Touch” and “Do Not Photograph.”

I love the sense of extremely restrained defiance this photo imparts.

    I see these things on Gamesniped from time to time, and I think about it the same way I think about how awesome it would be to have a vintage phone booth in my apartment to hang out in when I’m talking on the phone.

    I love how it’s running Mortal Kombat 2, of all games. Seriously? In JAPAN?

    Indeed, MKII on the gameboy may have had the least responsive controls of any game I’ve played before or since.

    So what you’re saying is, even on a gigantic, cumbersome Game Boy, Mortal Kombat II would essentially play the same?
