I also just noticed, there's a little stack of VB games behind the guy talking about the VB conversion.

Everyone is in the same room, so that may just be the producer of the videos, but I thought it was a coincidence :p

Was watching a Youtube video on Donkey Kong Country today where they are interviewing the development team. To my surprise, they talk about the Virtual Boy version and how far along it got. Sounds like it got a touch farther than I thought, with actual level graphics with scrolling and sprites. Interesting stuff :)

Welcome to the forum! I enjoyed the story, somewhat reminiscent to my past, whenever I wanted to experience games other than super mario I relied on my friends. Somehow I totally missed the Virtual Boy until like a few years after it was discontinued. Even then I gave up the opportunity to get a N64 instead, since I knew way more about it and all my friends already had one.

Really cool you got one for Christmas, I'm sure you'll thoroughly enjoy it :)

Lol! I'm not sure what form that would take but I know there are some creative folks on this site! If anyone asks, you can tell them it's for all the headaches you supposedly get from playing so much VB. I swear, I feel like that had got to the the most widespread video game psychosomatic thing ever. I have played countless hours of VB and never once got a headache. Maybe we are the weird ones though :D


I already have one which has Super Mario mushrooms built into it, the VB one would probably be a color scheme mostly =P

And I hear ya, I've played so much VB and never experienced headaches. I think the same people who get headaches on the VB are the same people who get headaches on the new VR head sets as well. Some people's brains just can't handle the stereoscopic display I guess..

And I will definitely show pics if I do get one retronintendonerd!

Huh, that is interesting. Definitely looks like a torx head or similar, so it must be for security so they could "lock" a VB to its stand. Since they were that concerned about it I wonder if they used cartridge locks too, similar to the ones included with kiosks. I mean, you'd think the cartridges would be way easier to swipe, you can't exactly pocket a VB head unit..

Yeah I wouldn't pay new pricing for a used one. $90 or a little less.
