Neat, glad to see a Flashboy alternative in the works. I have a small number of donors, I'll check tonight.

koifish! You should register at videogamesage.com, that's where I set up a continuation of the "Beat Every GB Game" thread. I was hoping we wouldn't lose anyone and I hadn't seen you over there yet.

Navigating the site is a bit... different over there, but I assume I'll get used to it.

Nice. I just got a Super Screen unit, it's way bigger than I thought it was going to be, lol. I don't know how hard I'll try to get every known game, but I grab them when I see them for a good price.

I've got a working head unit, XPG, and now Super Screen. Data Zone is a far-away dream for now, but maybe someday.

Reminds me of the instructions that would come with old Blockbuster rentals. I imagine they got tired of instruction manuals disappearing, then people complaining that they didn't know how to play the game. So the game cases (the VHS-sized ones that they used for everything, including Game Boy games) would have this kind of thing printed up on the back. Looks like about the right size, and the format looks like I remember it, with generic info taking up half the space, and one or two paragraphs about how to actually play the game. So my guess is Blockbuster.

Unless maybe they got these writeups from somewhere else. Maybe other rental places would use the same ones, I don't know.

Take all the time you need. No biggie at all. The VB came out in 1995, we can wait a few extra weeks. :P Hope you get better fastly.

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?
