  • I wish to tell you a story. A long time ago in the Land of Super Happy Bakery Elves, a brainy elf decided to make "Cyber Cookies". "What an elfy idea!" said the other elves. "But, how the elf shall we do such an elfy thing?" They decided to make many websites, including this one, automatically send magical elf cyber cookies to your magical and mystical Browser Cache. These cookies collect your IP number, where you click on the website and where you came from on the website. They also collect what you are browsing from and what country you live in. Why do they do such an elfy thing? Because the elves take this magical data and give it to the site owner so he can be an elfy pain bragging to his friends that he has a reader or three from Russia. It also allows him to realize what people click on the most. We also send this information to Santa. Santa looks at where you have been browsing and decides to put you on the Nice or Naughty list. Oh, my so make sure you stay away from bad, naughty pr0n! That's a good person. The cookies are also eaten by Chu Chu Mice and Blue Virii. Feed them!

FAQ

  • Q. What is with the name DMG ICE?
  • A. It's the OLD Game Boy Model #. The old Game Boys say DMG - 01, The Game Boy Pockets say MGB - 001 (That's the model number for the Ice Blue one.) I chose DMG, because it sounded cooler than MGB. Game Boy Color is CGB-001. Of course DMG Ice sounds cooler than CGB Clear Purple. GBA Platinum would be kind of a weird name. Whatcha think? We just stuck with the branding over the years. Even after the Game Boy family retired and was replaced by the DS and 3DS family of systems. Now it could mean "Digital Mobile Gaming Is a Complete Experience" or "Dot matrix Gaming Is Complete Ecstacy." All of those work because we are an advocate for mobile gaming as well as handheld gaming.
  • Q. Can you help me find a Game Boy game or product?
  • A. Only if you help me find a diet that works without cutting off anything major.
  • Q. Will I find ROMS or Emulators on your site?
  • A. NOPE. Go buy original equipment or support things like PS NOW, Virtual Console, and other types of distribution means.
  • Q. Will you post my file?
  • A. Nope.
  • Q. Will DMG ICE ever die?
  • A. When Hell freezes over!
  • Q. What is a Foy?
  • A. Foy is.. umm.. he's a BUG. He's the Bug of the New Millenium! He's also in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and above. And he's the best!
  • Q. Are the kids alright?
  • A. No. They're BLUE.
  • Q. GamerGate?
  • A. Over there, but you will need the GamerKey first.

  • Q. I can't think of a question!
  • A. Well, I can't think of an answer to that one.
  • Q. What is your destiny?
  • A. To right wrongs and triumph over evil! And that means YOU!
  • Q. Why don't you put Game Genie/Game Shark/Pro Action Replay codes up?
  • A. Using one of those Game Enchancers voids your warranty. I do not support things that can void your warrantee. You can find "Game Shark" codes easy enough on the net; and what if they do not work? Then all Hell would break loose and you would flame me. Maybe I might add Game Enchancer codes if Nintendo ever licensees one. 
  • Q. I hate how your site looks! I need EYE CANDY! I need stuff that has shockwave/dhtml/php/flash, etc! Make it look better!
  • A. Sigh.. here.. smoke this and then look at the site. See.. better.
  • Q. Are you condoning drug use?
  • A. It's okay... if you the only reason you visit a site is because of how it looks.. you're already on drugs to begin with.
  • Q. What's with the little blue virus guys?
  • A. They are the future rulers of the World Wide Web.
  • I own you.-RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!
  • Q. My religion prohibits me from looking at your site; what do I do?
  • A. Find a new religion or don't look at the site.
  • Q. I HATE your opinion. (Or the opinion of someone else.) How do I flame you?

  • Q. Is something wrong with Philip? He seems to have some type of schizophrenia!
  • A. Wow.. you can say a big word.. but you haven't grasped what it really means. I'm no more schizophrenic than Matt Groening, Trey Parker, Carl Barks, etc. Just because someone creates a character and does a voice for it; doesn't mean that they are schizophrenic. No one looks at Shigeru Miyamoto and say: "What a schizo. He must think he's Mario, or Link." No one says those because.. they are usually smart enough to know that the creator of a character or a person who gives a character a voice is NOT the character. If you can not grasp that.. go back to kindergarten where you belong.

  • A. Garmitually egwr etf!
  • Q. Do you get paid to do this?
  • A. Nope; but I'll find a way. I swear!

  • Q. Explain them.
  • A. Only if you explain why your mommy calls you "bunny-butt".
  • Q. What's an "Avardancer".
  • A. It has to do with the "Screwtape Letters"; but I'm also a Gengar!

I'll take a good game of Super Mario Bros. 3 or Sonic The Hedgehog 3 over Crash Bandicoot 3 anyday. It's the GAMES that make the system. Game Boy is blessed with thousands of great games and that is why I like it.
