It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.
As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.
Day 7: The Analogue Pocket
This isn’t a video game, as such, but rather a console that has been on the market for a while, but remains highly in demand with collectors. Each production run sells out quickly, so be sure to monitor the website and, if there is the opportunity to put an order in, do so! You won’t regret it, because The Analogue Pocket is a masterpiece of hardware design.
It is a Game Boy and Game Boy Advance player (with some available accessories to play other older pieces of hardware). But the screen is of such an exceptionally high quality that it breathes all-new life into all your games. Meanwhile, the build quality of the overall device is just perfect. Nintendo itself would appreciate the sheer quality of these devices. Christmas is a great time to relive your youth, and what better way to do that than replaying the games you remember unwrapping back as a child?
