I am so glad I didn't attempt this repair myself. I decided to send my VB to Nes Freak after reading all the glowing reviews. Communication was excellent! Price was right! Turn around was fast. Sent it in on Tuesday of last week and had it back on Friday of this week.

My daughter saw me unboxing it and asked, "Dad, is that the thing you put your cell phone in and put it on your head?" I laughed and said no this is a Nintendo! Then she asked, "OH, so you put your Nintendo Switch in it?" LOL, instead of explaining it, I just set everything up and we tested it out. Works perfect now! Plus, my baby got to experience the VB for the first time.

Thanks so much NES Freak!


no problem im glad i could revive your VB console! enjoy!

Dude can't help you there too many Irons in the fire. However L_E_T if you or you know people that want to learn 3d pixel art I will personally tutor you or any one who is'nt female for free. And Dude the Pathway to 3d pixel art Lies in the Pixel art program ProMotion NG even though I make no kind of kickback for thoes that I get to use the program I will tell you the 3d stereo optic tools for ProMotion NG are awesome, I should know I and created them!

Adding this to conversation. Stumbled on it on Instagram which I rarely go on.

X is a very cool game, I love the presentation. They also did Race Drivin which is damn impressive for the Gameboy.

Those are cool pins, I love OoT. Those old e3 collectables are really fun to stumble across years later

Not sure if it's the right spot for it so apologies if that's the case.

Mutant Mudds struck me as what could have been a Super Virtual Boy game way back when I played the demo, and was rather reminiscent of Wario Land (though admittedly I've not played much of that to make a proper comparison) so I'm pretty psyched to grab it in a physical release and thought others here might be interested too:

Fancy version is still up as of posting, they've got a regular one of just the game as well if that's more your speed.

I always thought Cave Story would be a great fit for the system. Game is open source as well and would be a neat port.


...and has a 3D version (that didn't turn out great) so I would Looooove a 3D pixel-art Cave Story, same formula worked so well for WarioLand, which I think is the main system seller.

For $200?! It'd be cheaper to pay someone to hold it for you ;)

There is also this guy, "Cheapest-deals-here". https://www.ebay.com/itm/Space-Invader ... nd-New-Complete-MINT-USA/

This now shows a US Repro box for Space Invaders, but this use to be a Japanese fake, this exact same listing. I had it in my Watchlist. He changed the image and title recently, but it use to be a "bad fold" Japanese fake.

I messaged him ages ago regarding it being fake, explained why it was fake. He claimed I was full of it and threatened to try to get me banned from ebay for "harassing" him. He clearly knew what he was doing, he was selling like 5 of them so it wasn't something he mistakenly bought, and now was mistakenly reselling. He claims in all his listing "It comes from his personal collection" which is a clear lie as well. Now the same listing shows a US repro box, so I take it he finally got in trouble and changed what he was selling. That tells me he personally is making the fakes and has the capability to switch and print something else whenever he wants.

So he knew it was fake the entire time which is no surprise, but a heads up, he's a con artist, he knows what he's doing, and he has no problem scamming anyone so watch out for that account. Even worse, as I said, he just changed the image and name recently, he only had 1 left, and still does. The 6 sold, were back when he had the Japanese fake. So he sold 6 "bad flap" japanese fakes and got away with it and they are now floating around out there. Oh and the price use to be around twice as much too.

I know I'm years late on this but that first post is so cool, I had no idea Argonaut did any other 3D titles outside of X. I love that game just for the story of it, was lucky enough to chance upon a copy when looking for other things to pad out a play-asia order years and years and *years* ago.

Could probably spam up the thread going on about all sorts of things I've picked up that I think are cool, though I don't quite have anything on the level of unreleased prototypes - most of my stuff was available at retail or whatever. Also a good chunk of it is more obscure in a local context, since we miss out on a whole lot of things down here and have to rely on imports. Mostly I'm mildly obsessed with weird/niche peripherals (hence getting on the VB bandwagon years ago) so most of the stuff I've amassed is centred around that.

One small-but-cool one, a few years back my boss was getting ready to move to another country and me and a friend were over at his place for one final board games night. In the process of tidying up he'd uncovered a few things that were still kicking around from back when he worked in the games industry. Pretty much said "oh hey I found these, I figured you might be interested in them" and just handed me what I recognised as a pair of E3 promo pins for Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. I kinda slipped up in my excitement mentioning how they go for a pretty high price, and he expressed some regret in not having thought to just try sell them instead. But still let me keep them anyway, such an awesome parting gift :P

Lol, that'd be awesome. It's a shame some people try to scam others
