That's awesome, it would have been easy for them to add a small cost bump, knowing you would have paid it. Good fab house.

Game Boy also had a PAL-only Waterworld release, but it's more like the SNES game than the VB game.

Yeah, I've been "scammed" before on ebay, I bought what I thought was a good deal on some Game Boy stuff. I caught right when it was listed, and I bought it before I noticed that the seller had a Chinese name and no feedback. It took a while but I got my money back, and there's no way that seller got any money out of it.

But those accounts/listings keep popping up. I wonder if they're doing something weird like selling the PayPal accounts themselves, showing that there's a pending deposit (that never goes through)?

Lol I just saw the AVGN episode. I hardly recognize any of the people in the clips, it took five or six before I realized that they were actual online personalities and not just random people with exploding Aladdins. So it was neat to see a familiar face and pink console. (with "James AVGN" signed on it)

I'm guessing you don't really have an Aladdin Deck Enhancer?

Well let's get those 10 (or 25?) prototypes made! Your update says you're waiting for a quote, let us know how many preorders you think you'll end up needing for the first run, and I bet we have enough people who would back it. Even if the estimated cost goes up from the first estimate of $150.

I know Kickstarter takes a big cut, but it's good for visibility and for people who aren't on PlanetVB and are leery of Paypaling money to a stranger. But before then, we might as well transfer as much $$ OFF of Kickstarter as we can, just so we aren't giving Kickstarter funds that could go to you. Hopefully we can get enough for the first run without KS.

Same, I'd front the cost. But I recognize that there doesn't yet exist a working prototype of the mulitboy32, correct? So is this just a matter of cost and time? Or is there a real possibility that this won't actually pan out?

Well yeah, it would be like any other online forum competition, including various contests on NintendoAge, facebook, reddit, the High Scores leaderboard on planetVB, etc. We'd have to trust each other not to "weird flex" cheat to the top of the leaderboard.

Honestly Mario Clash can get pretty fun once you get used to the mechanics. It's a bit nostalgic for me too.

For some reason I love Vertical Force. There are better shmups out there, but I like this one.

Teleroboxer is a game I've really tried to like, but I've not managed to get very far, so it's frustrating. I need to explore the complexities a bit more. I appreciate its use of both d-pads and first-person view. Definitely an immersive game.

Red Alarm... I just have no idea what I'm looking at. More practice maybe?

And I'm one of those people who doesn't mind Waterworld.

NintendoAge has those threads where everyone collectively tries to beat every game for each system, with a re-start every year. There have been Virtual Boy threads in previous years, but not lately. It would be neat to do something similar here, modified to accommodate the tiny library. When the NES Classic released, there was a thread where they tried to beat all 30 games 30 times across all members, so that lots of people got credit for beating each game.

I've always wanted to try some sort of "HORSE" game, where one person does something specific in any game of their choosing, and everyone who can't repeat it gets a letter, and you're out if you spell HORSE. Maybe one challenge per week, and the challenger rotates among all participants.

For example, it's my week to be the challenger, so I get one day to pick a game and do something. Before the end of the day on Monday, I post that I bowled a 220 in Nester's Funky Bowling. Everyone has all week to try to match it. Everyone who fails by Sunday night gets a letter, and now it's VmprHntrD's turn to choose a game and challenge. VmprHntrD gets a high score on a specific Galactic Pinball table. And so on.

Verification and picture taking might get tricky, but we'll figure something out. Ostensibly, we'd discuss how to get good scores etc. since people will typically choose games they're already good at, just like real HORSE.

There would have to be signups, with a defined agreed-upon list of what games can be played. Ideally, everyone would have a Flashboy and everything would be fair game. But it would still be doable with a subset, like "all US releases minus Jack Bros" or whatever everyone agrees on. But nobody should get a letter just because they haven't shelled out for an expensive game.

Just a brain-child I've had for a while. Would be good for VB since the bigger the library, the crazier it would get.
