Recently arrived the sixth book of the third season, the Game Boy Advance, What is the Volume 19. This edition covers the history of the Nintendo laptop, including personalities, hardware, models, accessories and 648 games.

Editora Europa finally solved the packaging problem: this volume came in a cardboard packaging, so it arrived without the traditional dents and scraps due to the mistreatment of Correios. But this time the problem was another: a print / cut failure left a page torn, with a piece of printing missing and another with misaligned colors. Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing:

In contact with the publisher they apologized and sent another copy, this without fail. Check out the photos and video of the new unboxing:

I never had a Game Boy Advance. I never actually had portable video games in my childhood / adolescence. I just bought the Dingoo and the Switch in more recent times.

Nevertheless, the book is a good guide for choosing games to meet at MiSTer, which has a GBA core which is very good. It is a pity that the Editora Europa has covered less than half of the console library, that has more than 1500 games. Furthermore, owed the information of which games were launched in Brazil, by “lack of historical records”.

I usually don't have much interest in consoles I didn't have any contact with. But GBA is an exception because it has a lot of Super Nintendo game conversions, some with improved graphics, although with a lower resolution (256×224 no SNES versus 240×160 no GBA) and with less buttons.
