So I am going to be very bored next month when I go to Fort Irwin California for some "training". I'd like to have something cool to play with. Does anyone have one of these? Are the games worth the 40 bucks a pop for them?

It's not that great if you value your eyesight (unless you have some kinda bionic nightvision). Seriously though it is DARK!

Vrock-

Cool. GBA at NTC. Unless those M1A1's have a cigarette lighter and then you should go with a PSone with LCD. More games :grin:.

HowardDrake,

Heh, yeah, well I'm a staff weenie right now, so I figure the GBA will keep me busy on those long nights when I draw Battle Captain duty.

HowardDrake,

Thats not too far-fetched, during my NTC rotation way back in 1997 we had a AC/DC switch with a power strip connected to the APU on the M1A1C, with this we ran everything from coffe makers to TV's we even had a Playstation with a TV. Can you believe out in the middle of the Freaking desert at night watching the Simpsons or playing games on the PS.

So I wound up buying a used gameboy color and a bunch of used games from ebgames.com.

Ought to keep me busy for a month.
