Maybe this is already common knowledge, but I've never seen these before. I was looking up some game data on esrb.org, and I found entries for unreleased VB games that were ostensibly rated by the ESRB. I haven't figured out how to search for all VB games, or download the entire database (for the same purpose) but here's at least 3 I found:

Virtual League Baseball 2

I don't know anything about the ESRB, or how complete a game has to be for the ESRB to assign a rating, but these all have ratings. Many games from that era show "No Desriptors," "No Interactive Elements," and "No Rating Summary."

I bet it's salvageable. I've rescued some pretty bad jobs.

Heh, we're not exactly going to tell you "no, you shouldn't get it, VB isn't that great"

VB is awesome and you should get one.

If you plug in the controller and turn it on while it's open like that, do you see a red LED come on anywhere inside the "guts" of the VB?

Hawwwww snap. I have a flashboy so I didn't think I needed this. But that e-ink. VERY cool idea. power up the cart through USB, select the ROM you want using inputs and a display, self-flash. Hnnngggggg.

I'll be able to buy one in a couple of days, hopefully they're still available lol. Let me know if you want help with the soldering.

Sorry that happened to you man. Especially given that he's definitely going to turn those VBs around and get as much $$ as he can for them.

I haven't done anything through ebay, but I might run into him through other channels. Thanks for sharing the info.

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.
