I'm going to post this here because it's somewhat related to Virtual Boy, and I do mention it here and there in the video :)

I lived in Japan for a year and I didn't see too many Virtual Boy games, certainly not at Book Off / Hard Off. Mandarake has some, and I did see Virtual Bowling once in Surugaya in Tokyo. I saw SD Gundam cart only once in Osaka, it might still be there but it was 60000 yen or something I think. There's not cheap there either.

Couldn't they at least have made it red? If I get this I will have to get a red film-thing to put in front of the goggles to create a better experience

VB Wario Land is by far my favorite Wario game.

Wario Land 2 and 3 just didn't grab me, it deviated too far from the 'Mario' formula for me. Having to collect/do certain things to progress? No thanks. VB Wario Land absolutely nailed the balance of collecting vs standard get to the goal. I like how collecting isn't mandatory to finish, but more of an incentive to play again and explore.


My thoughts exactly!

Oh; the answer is none, Nintendo has yet to even come close to what they did with VB Wario Land in the rest of the series.


I agree! The Wario series went the way of Castlevania and found it's way of doing things and never went back. A Wario Land Virtual Boy remake would be nice...

He didn't ask which -Virtual Boy- games were better than Wario Land, he asked which -Wario Land- games were better than Wario Land on Virtual Boy

Kind of a lighthearted topic maybe, but Iím playing through WLVB for the first time ever, and I am amazed at how good it is and how well it holds up. All of the powerups, the level designs, the fluidity of the controls, of course the 3D ó it hangs so so well together, and itís got me desperately wanting to play another one of these after I finish this one. Do any if his few platforming adventures equal this one (or better) in your opinion?


Actually I think VB Wario Land is the best game in the series. With Wario Land 2 the Wario series changed from "beat the stage while finding secrets and coins" to "run around a bigger stage looking for secrets and coins and you can't die, just get inconvenienced" which I didn't think was as good as before. The next best game in the series is Super Mario Land 3 Wario Land on Gameboy, which is still a regular platformer.
Of the later more exploration-based games, Wario Land 4 on GBA and Wario Land Shake Dimension on Wii are both pretty good though, but not close to Virtual Boy Wario Land in my opinion.

Very nice, but I still think filming into the eye of the VB has a certain amount of charm to it ^^ (although I'm biased hehe)

I helped a friend of mine make a top 5 VB games video, by adding my picks and voice. The rest of the video was made by Jordan. I showed him the Virtual Boy in person a few years ago, and he liked it. I like spreading the joy of the VB :)

I'm living in Japan for a year (only a month and a half left though..) and one of my japanese friends has a friend who used to work at Hudson. He was impressed and delighted that I like games so much I think, and recently he gave me a boxed Vertical Force, signed by Takahashi Meijin, who worked at Hudson. If you don't know who he is, he got famous in Japan in the 80s for being able to rapid-press the fire button in schmups a record 16 times in one second. He was also the inspiration so to speak for the main character in Adventure Island which is called Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima in Japan.
So a cool present to say the least!
