Game Boy Color

The Game Boy Color is a handheld game console manufactured by Nintendo, released in Japan on October 21, 1998, released in November of the same year to international markets. It is part of the Game Boy family; the GBC features a color screen rather than monochrome. It is thicker and taller and features a smaller screen than the Game Boy Pocket, its immediate predecessor in the Game Boy line; as with the original Game Boy, it has a custom 8-bit processor made by Sharp, considered a hybrid between the Intel 8080 and the Zilog Z80. The spelling of the system's name, Game Boy Color, remains consistent throughout the world, with its American English spelling of "color"; the Game Boy Color is part of the fifth generation of video game consoles. The GBC's primary competitors in Japan were the grayscale 16-bit handhelds, Neo Geo Pocket and the WonderSwan, though the Game Boy Color outsold them by a wide margin. SNK and Bandai countered with the Neo Geo Pocket Color and the Wonderswan Color but this did little to change Nintendo's sales dominance.

With Sega discontinuing the Game Gear in 1997, the Game Boy Color's only competitor in the United States was its predecessor, the Game Boy, until the short-lived Neo Geo Pocket Color was released in August 1999. The Game Boy and the Game Boy Color combined have sold 118.69 million units worldwide making it the third-best-selling system of all time,It was discontinued on March 23, 2003, shortly after the release of the Game Boy Advance SP. Its best-selling game was Pokémon Silver, which shipped 23 million units worldwide; the Game Boy Color was a response to pressure from game developers for a more sophisticated handheld platform, as they felt that the Game Boy in its latest incarnation, the Game Boy Pocket, was insufficient. The resultant product was backward compatible, a first for a handheld system, leveraged the large library of games and installed base of the predecessor system; this became a major feature of the Game Boy family, since it allowed each new launch to begin with a larger library than any of its competitors.

On March 23, 2003, the Game Boy Color was discontinued. The technical specifications for the console are as follows: Main processor: Sharp Corporation LR35902 Processor speed: 4.194304/8.388608 MHz, effective speed 1.0485 or 2.097 MHz Resolution: 160 × 144 pixels Frame rate: 59.727500569606 Hz Screen size: 4.4 × 4 cm/1.7 × 1.6 inch Palette colors available: 32,768 Colors on screen: Supports 10, 32 or 56 Maximum sprites: 40 total, 10 per line, 4 colors per sprite Sprite size: 8×8 or 8×16 Tiles on screen: 512 Audio: 2 square wave channels, 1 wave channel, 1 noise channel, mono speaker, stereo headphone jack RAM: 32 kiB VRAM: 16 kiB Power: internal: 2 AA batteries, up to 10 hours of gameplay external: 3V DC 0.6W indicator: Red LED Input: 8-way Control Pad 4 buttons Volume potentiometer Power switch Serial I/O: 512 kbit/s with up to 4 connections in serial Infra-red I/O: Less than 2 m distance at 45° Cartridge I/O Dimensions: Metric: 133.5 × 78 × 27.4 mm Imperial: 5.25 × 3.07 × 1.07 in Weight: 138 gGame Paks manufactured by Nintendo have the following specifications: ROM: 8 MB maximum Cartridge RAM: 128 kiB maximumWithout additional mapper hardware, the maximum ROM size is 32kiB/256kib.

The processor, a Zilog Z80 workalike made by Sharp with a few extra instructions, has a clock speed of 8 MHz, twice as fast as that of the original Game Boy. The Game Boy Color has three times as much memory as the original; the screen resolution was the same as the original Game Boy, 160×144 pixels. The Game Boy Color featured an infrared communications port for wireless linking; the feature was only supported in a small number of games, so the infrared port was dropped from the Game Boy Advance line, to be reintroduced with the Nintendo 3DS, though wireless linking would return in the Nintendo DS line. The console was capable of showing up to 56 different colors on screen from its palette of 32,768, could add basic four-, seven- or ten-color shading to games, developed for the original 4-shades-of-grey Game Boy. In the 7-color modes, the sprites and backgrounds were given separate color schemes, in the 10-color modes the sprites were further split into two differently-colored groups; this method of upgrading the color count resulted in graphic artifacts in certain games.

Manipulation of palette registers during display allowed for a used "high color mode", capable of displaying more than 2,000 colors on the screen simultaneously. For dozens of popular Game Boy titles, the Game Boy Color has an enhanced palette built-in featuring up to 16 colors - four colors for each of the Game Boy's four layers. If the system does not have a palette stored for a game, it defaults to a palette of green, salmon and white. However, when the user turns on the system, they may choose one of 12 built-in colo

One night in the town of Charming, California, a Mexican-American motorcycle gang called the Mayans break into a warehouse to steal from a shipment of automatic weapons. Unaware that two women are hiding beneath the building, Mayans leader Marcus Alvarez orders the warehouse destroyed; as he's visiting a nearby convenience store, Jax Teller, the vice-president of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club - Redwood Original, witnesses the resulting explosion. The next morning, at the site of the explosion, Sheriff Vic Trammel –, on SAMCRO's payroll – tells club president Clay Morrow that the warehouse was destroyed by arson, showsing him the bodies of the two women. Clay instructs Trammel to set up a meeting with the One-Niners, an East Bay street gang who buy weapons from SAMCRO.

One-Niners leader Laroy Wayne, who needs SAMCRO's guns to cover for an incoming shipment of heroin, gives Clay more time to replace the lost weapons. Meanwhile, Jax has moved into a spare room at SAMCRO's clubhouse after splitting up with his pregnant wife Wendy Case, addicted to methamphetamine. Looking through old belongings in his parents' garage, Jax finds old photographs of his late father John, the founder of SAMCRO, as well as a journal written for Jax detailing the history of the club. Jax is called away to a club meeting where SAMCRO's intelligence officer Juice Ortiz has traced the stolen guns to the Mayans in San Leandro. Clay wants torch the place where they were found. Jax's mother, Gemma Teller Morrow, finds Wendy unconscious, necessitating her being hospitalized and her baby being delivered ten weeks premature via Caesarean section, she takes her to the hospital and calls Jax, who also shows up at the hospital. Dr. Tara Knowles, Jax's high school sweetheart, tells him that the baby has a heart defect which, combined with Wendy's drug abuse, gives him just a 20% chance of survival.

Jax beats Wendy's dealer. He asks his best friend and lapsed club member Opie Winston to come along on the approaching raid on the Mayans' warehouse. Opie, an explosives expert, only reluctantly agrees as he was released from a five-year prison sentence after being caught during a similar raid. Jax suggests that SAMCRO look into other ways of earning money besides gun running, but Clay prioritizes retrieving their stolen weapons.

At the hospital, Wendy asks Jax to get rid of the drug stash at their home, he finds Gemma cleaning the house. Gemma admonishes Jax for abandoning the baby. Jax tells Gemma about John's journal, in which his father stated that SAMCRO has strayed away from his original vision of social rebellion; that night, Gemma tells Clay to stop Jax's new found mode of thinking, not wanting "the ghost of John Teller" to tear down everything they've built together.

At the hospital, Tara recommends that Abel's heart surgery happen today, asks to talk to Gemma, she asks her to talk to Wendy and let her know that she has somebody, but Gemma says she would only give her vitriol. Tara asks if she has a problem with her being involved with the case, to which Gemma replies that as long as she's a good doctor, she couldn't care less; the two argue, with Tara claiming. Gemma lifts up the back of her shirt exposing a biker tattoo. Tara claims. Gemma exits, calling her a bitch as she leaves; that night, Jax goes to Opie's house to bring him along on the raid and finds that his wife Donna is angered because Opie is again involved with the club.
