If Blox ever gets made I guess it will be the first homebrewed, published, and sold game on VB. The homebrew scene on other retro systems is growing like crazy. Anyone see the atari 2600 stuff coming out lately? Skeleton is awesome, it even has stereo sound! 3DO, Sega CD, CDI, Colecovision, and especially Dreamcast are doing really well.

Good Deal Games publishes new games for classic systems, check out www.gooddealgames.com

Yes, many folks will gladly shell out good money for a really well-made homebrew, especially on a system that didn't release a lot of games like VB or Vectrex.

Shutterglasses are amazing now with current refresh rates, the flicker is is basically unnoticable to the human eye if your monitor is above 75 hz (I play at 100 :) )

A good site to check out is
http://www.stereo3d.com/shutter.htm

And this is a decent list of pretty compatible games:

I bought these glasses:
http://www.i-glassesstore.com/3dgaming.html

I was very lucky enough to get them, with a bonus set of 2 wired TV glasses and transmitter, and 3 DVD movies for $80 total at PhillyClassic this year (I can't really recommend the TV ones, the flicker is unbearable).

The PC ones work great, are wireless, and are flawless with most direct3D/DirectX games (yes, you could even get them to work with Playstation emulators)

if you have a NVIDIA graphics card it works extremely well, but if you don't, you need a glidewrapper or something that is apparently VERY glitchy.

Enjoy!

I'm dying for a new/updated pc vb emulator, especially one with shutterglasses support. Analygraph is OK, but shutterglasses rock.

Has anyone released the source for their now-defunct emulators? has anyone picked them up? are any of them worth picking up?

sigh...

Bootleg gameboy carts have always been easy to find, but has anyone ever seen these so-called VB bootleg carts? I have heard of one on one site that had all the games ever released, plus several homebrew games and demos. I have a feeling that if it did actually exist that a few games were missing, just like on all the bootleg gb carts I have.

Personally, I would love to be able to play the demos and homebrews on the actual system, so I'm dying to hunt one of these suckers down. I'm possibly going to asia next summer, and I'll definately search while I'm there. Any info in the meantime would be great.

it just ain't gonna happen. They're already gambling with the DS, and 3d has always had a niche audience (although a DS in a different "box" would basically be a color 3d system, placing one screen in each eye). I love 3d gaming, I wouldn't sell my shutterglasses for anything (playing gta3 in 3d rules!!!!). The virtual boy is fun, but something like it could not and will not ever become mainstream ANYTIME soon.

face the facts, there just isn't a big enough audience of people who will pay to strap something on their head or place their head in front of something to play a game or watch a movie. People are lazy, they want to "walk into a room and see entertainment". People are scared of virtual reality in small boxes on their heads, but have no qualms about walking into a small room with a tv in it, they also have no problem wearing 3d glasses. I dunno what's wrong with people. I know there is something wrong with me because i've spent all night looking at VB stuff online when I should be sleeping... i have class today.
