Despite a renaissance in outdated gaming tech, there’s a small blip in the history of retro gaming hardware that has all been all but abandoned in the emulation scene: light guns.

Now here is something that completely passed under my radar. Earlier this week, a team of modders released an HD overhaul mod for the NES version of The Legend of Zelda. This overhaul mod uses Zelda 1 Redux as a base, and allows PC gamers to experience a faithful remaster of this Zelda game on the PC via the NES emulator, Mesen.
Going into more details, this Mesen HD Pack increases the internal resolution, improves textures and audio, and brings new animated environments. Additionally, it increases frame count for running, introduces breakable tile hints, and faster text printing. Not only that, but this mod also comes with some gameplay tweaks. For instance, it increases the bomb upgrade amount, and allows for faster health refills.
The Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. system won’t be around forever, but it will be distributed for a few months.

If you’re in North America and are hoping to secure a pre-order, you might be out of luck. The official website no longer has a notice about reservations and instead says Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. will be “releasing November 13th”.
The Nintendo Game Boy has a clever form of Anti Tamper that made it difficult for unofficial and bootleg games to be developed for it and it was all thanks to the Nintendo Logo thats displayed when you power on the handheld. Lets take a closer look at the Boot process of the Game Boy.
