2. OUR POLICY: At DMG ICE we are devoted to covering the greatest system ever made: Game Boy. (And all it's variations.) There is however a catch. We only provide CERTAIN content. We are a information site mainly. We do not endorse importing games, using Game Boy emulators, owning licensed Game Boy ROMS, buying/using pirated Games, and we strive to cover mostly American information. After all; we are a US based site; so US coverage is what we do.
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. Heh. Heh. That's the URL. Of course Dmg Ice sounds cooler than CGB Clear Purple.
Q. Can you help me find a Game Boy game or product?
A. Only if you help me find true love, and a diet that works without cutting off anything major.
Q. Will I find ROMS or Emulators on your site?
A. NO. Emulators are for dead systems that companies don't make money on like Game Gear, Dreamcast, Genesis, and Atari Jaguar. Game Boy is not dead yet. (And it won't be for QUITE a long time.) Besides; those eat up space and are NOT as good as the real deal.
Q. Will you post my file?
A. Depends what it is. If it's a walk through, review, special, Fan Fiction, editorial; or very worth file that you made. I will post it. Mind you though; I want great content that EVERYONE can enjoy. So please keep language to a bare minimum. I believe that we are all civilized enough to avoid comments like "Home Alone sucks my @$$#0!é". I will be a little more liberal with Fan Fiction though as long as you keep it to a PG-13 rating. (Mind you, if it's a really REALLY good Fan Fiction. I'll let it get by with an R; but I'll put up a little warning by it; so that children don't read it.)
Q. Sounds reasonable. How do I send a file?
A. By attaching the file and a good description in an e-mail to
( firstname.lastname@example.org )
Q. Will DMG ICE ever die?
A. When Hell freezes over!
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 if add Game Enchancer codes if Nintendo ever licensees one. Well, those who want those codes can find the at Game Sages. It's also a GREAT place for Game Boy Codes. While Game Genie codes are safe; be wary of Game Shark codes as they can actually corrupt Save Data.
Q. What's with the little blue virus guys?
A. They are the future rulers of the World Wide Web.
-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?
A. You don't. My opinion is covered by the First Amendment. AND only the LAME flame.
Q. Love your content and graphics! Can I have them and put them on my own site?
A. Yes and No. Yes, if you ask me. NO, if you are leaching the picture or don't ask. Leaching is illegal.
Q. Aren't all those game names and junk copyrighted by their respective companies?
A. Yup. And major thanks goes out to those companies. Now, go buy their products.
Q. I saw those virus guys on another site!
A. Yes, they do moon-light; but hey! So does Piky, Frenchy, and almost
everyone else that works
here. It is OKAY.
Q. >Insert other sites name< is BETTER than your site!
A. Tell that to someone who actually gives a damn about competition.
Q. Why you cuss? I make you eat soap!
A. Well, I'm over 18. I can say stuff. Even G rated movies get away
with the same words. Besides,
Soap is high in calories....
Q. Wasn't this site on Nintendojo at one time?
A. Umm. Yeah, things fell through. We aren't "stoic" enough. ;)
A. Garmitually egwr etf!
Q. Do you get paid to do this?
Q. Who are you?
A. I'm really a Gengar. Actually my name is Philip Andrew Wesley. My nicknames are "PawPaw the Wonderdog", The Duece, and The Avardancer. (Please don't ask me to explain them.)
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!
Q. What! You ain't no GENGAR!!!!

Q. Where do you get your news?
A. From the voices in my socks. Also from Nintendo of America's Website, my sources, and Nintendo of Japan's Website. (And some times I'll print a good rumor.)
Q. When is >Insert game name< coming out?
A. The voices in my socks say that you need to check out the RELEASE DATES.
Q. When do the release dates update?
A. When products are released or moved. Since this happens a lot; I do not announce Release date changes on the front page.
Q. What's "Funtography Hut"?
A. Funtography Hut is a separate site; but it is part of Dmg Ice. Think how Puerto Rico is part of the United States; but isn't. Funtography Hut is a separate site and it updates on its own. Adrock runs that site and has done a pretty good job; don't cha think? Go visit it.
Q. When do you update?
A. Between my sleep breaks.
Q. Are you single?
A. Yes and no. Next question.
Q. Do you have a girlfriend?

A. Ya sure?

A. Divine intervention.

A. Well, then I live in Knob Noster, Missouri. Look me up sometime. But, first. If you were an item; would you be a pear, apple, watermelon, or hourglass?
Q. I'm a guy and I want your number!
A. I don't have a number. I hate technology. I don't have electricity either.
Q. I'm a creature and I want your number!
A. I don't give my number out to creatures. (Well, certain creatures.)

A. SAILOR MERCURY!
Q. Are you in any way affiliated to Nintendo?
A. Only in my dreams. (Which taste good by the way.)
Q. What does a Pikachu taste like?
A. A big, furry, electric mouse. But why would you want to eat one?
(They're high in CALORIES!)
Q. What does Jerry the Yellow Virus taste like?

Q. What's your favorite food?
Q. Where do I find the Mirror?
A. In the cave after you beat the Hydra. Get the Cave Key from the Lizardmen that live in the swamp a little ways from the hotel.
Q. I love Goldeneye for N64. I want to know if there is anything that Game Boy offers that comes close to Goldeneye for N64?
A. I have no idea why this question is here; but here's the answer: FACEBALL 2000 is the ONLY first-person shooter on Game Boy with a 16 PLAYER Deathmatch. You need a bunch of Game Link cords, 16 Game Boys (Or Game Boy Pockets.) and 4 four-player adapters. (It's tough; but it's worth it....)
Q. What is your opinion of other Game Boy sites?
A. They are my friends. Even though I will take shots at them on occasion. :)
Q. Game Boy sucks, man.
A. You go to HELL! You go to HELL and you DIE!
Q. Why don't you make an N64/PSX/PSX2/Dreamcast/Game.com/?? site?
A. Because I like Game Boy.
Q. Why don't you put up Home Brew ROMS?
A. Because Home Brew ROMS are usually posted all over the internet without the consent of the author and besides; I have limited space.
Q. Can you help me with a part in a game?
A. Yes. All that you have to do is say please and e-mail me the question.
Q. What systems do you own?
A. I'm a solid Nintendo bookie; and I own an NES, SNES, Virtualboy, Game Boy, and N64. Okay, so I also own a Genesis 3 and a Playstation Dual Shock. Is that a sin?
Q. Yes, it is a sin.
A. Who died and made you Pope?
Q. Do you have "connections".
A. Yes. I had Wario Land a month before it hit the stores in Europe; mainly because of my connections in Germany. When I moved here; I use my connections in stores and with companies to get me information.
Q. Man, so and so in the chat page/BBS is an idiot.
A. Why are you telling me this?
Q. Who's Janna?
Q. Why is she perfection?
A. My opinion...
Q. Are you obsessive?
A. No, I'm just right. Not too fat, not too skinny.
Q. What websites do you visit?
A. Hmm. Quite a few.. but "www.nintendorks.com" and "www.nintendojo.com" are a few of my faves. I also visit a lot of smaller Game Boy sites and Pokémon sites. (Why not?)
Q. Are you biased toward a particular system, company?
A. While I prefer to go where the best GAMES are; I'm a Nintendo and
Sega bookie. I like their in-house games better than Sony's. 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.
Q. "Cartridges or CDs?"
A. Cartridges. Why? Because, cartridges look better, last longer, and
with compression ratios...
can hold more than CDs.
Q. Final Fantasy or Legend of Zelda?
A. Legend of Zelda 4: "Link's Awakening" DX is better than Final Fantasy 7. Although, Final Fantasy 3 for the SNES ranks right below Legend of Zelda 4.
Q. Name your ten favorite games of all time. (Right now..)
A. Hmm. That is easy. Super Mario. Bros 3, Legend of Zelda 4: "Link's Awakening" DX, Pokémon, Final Fantasy 3 (AKA FF6), Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Tetris, Sonic Spinball, Operation C, Wario Land 2, and Earthbound. Surprising.. isn't it?
Q. I like ham.
A. Ham owns you.
Q. What did you do before you started Dmg Ice?
A. Stalk people and make content for other sites. Read some of my stuff under the ALIAS "The Avardancer at most IGN sites like ZHQ, and Nintendorks. Some of my other cool things are on smaller sites. I still write stuff for people. I'll go through the net, find a site, and if I like the person, I'll sign the guestbook or send something cool. I look for ORIGINAL content in sites.
Q. >Insert name of content or section on Dmg Ice< SUX!!
A. You're entitled to your opinion. (Padrino, get 'em some shoes.)

A. Gunpei Yokoi. He's dead now; and he also created the Metroid series. I'll miss him.
Q. How old is your site?
A. Old enough to know better and not care about it as well.
Q. Who is the Cyber Ninja?
A. Gray Fox. Oops! That ain't a Game Boy game!!!
Q. Well, my "special friend" and I are having troubles. You see... I say that such and such is an acceptable practice; but my friend does not think so and thinks that I am disgusting for thinking about such a thing. Well.... umm. I'm going to refer to it as "spaghetti". What is your opinion on pre-nuptial "spaghetti"?
A. Umm. "Spaghetti" is best when it is cooked up with a dash of that "Onion Ring" if you ask me. Anything else would be "Stale Pizza". Okay, so I'm not Ann Landers or Abby. I run a GAME BOY site; not a helpline.

Q. What is Game Boy capable of doing?
A. Mind control and fathering cheap imitators.
Q. Who was Jimi Hendrix?
