Well I know this won't be popular, but no I won't try and convince you to not quit. Feel free.

What games exactly is he posting that YOU 100% entirely made of your own accord? I consistently see these projects where something was translated, something was hacked, something borrowed assets from legally released or in the case of Bound High unreleased games. In particular recently there was Space Invaders hacking peoples picture and name into the thing, a little tweaking here and there, but basically the same expensive Japanese only release being sold for profit.

That makes you a hypocrite. You really can't have it both ways complaining about someone else making profit off games they don't have a right to be selling while you do the very same.

I really wish someone would take one of these updated emulators and back port it to something that's not stuck on those expensive goggles. I like vbjin enough but it's not perfect either by any means.

Last years I got an original of this game and it works, but it has a problem with saving. Now I'm not saying it is impossible, but what are the odds I'd have 2 bad batteries, one I bought new? It just won't save anything. It's not the end of days or anything but it is slightly annoying.

I've got that Spy Hunter, despite the questionable choice of only having one weapon at a time (meaning loss of gun for...) it's an oddly fun game and a bit more challenging due to that choice. The audio and visuals are amazing, right in there with the arcade too, so it's a nice variant of the original but if you're a purist it may piss you off.

Carmen I found this about a week ago at an overstock/return stock shop, got lucky they had one sealed up for $10 so I grabbed it. I'm shocked how good it is, far better and more reasonable than Oregon Trail with all its overkill use of death to make a point. The whole setup from the old DOS era game is there with the clues, filling in for the warrant, travel and questioning, all of it down to the win/loss of the hunt -- and it saves progress too. I can't recommend that one any higher of the two.

Yeah this is interesting to me too. I have a VB up in a closet I got probably 6mo ago now that's just screwed because of a failed ribbon repair. Burnt curled bacon with splayed out copper wires like a bad hair day pretty much covers it. There is no salvage, there are not ribbons I can find on ebay anymore repairable or working, so this would be most helpful as some kind of kit with a new ribbon and the jack.

I feel the need to play necromancer here.

A couple weeks ago it was dumb luck that not only did I track down one of these (XPG) but the semi-local game shop which usually is high had it so long it was mismarked at $13 with Jedi Academy so I snapped it up. I'm surprised how good it is considering how badly it's dumped on. It really is the poor mans Virtual Boy in a very obvious way. When I say good though I mean good as much as their 80s/early 90s tiger segments handheld games could get good (and a few did, very few.) I tracked down Daytona for it and have that today, kind of hoping I can find more of them.

Is there a historically decently fair barometer on what to pay or not to on these, in particular loose, as I have no interest in getting baked cutting open something new as I'm sure even this thing has collectors.

Yes and no. It was bad years back but a lot of it chilled in more recent times. Despite how things were then to closer to now, and given how it was done in a very sleazy and rotten way it was sad as it wasn't right or deserved.

Most those who cared and weren't snobs opened up another site from the ashes and it's a very nice and non elitist setup so far in its few months of existence. If anything, a good flushing out was handed and what was good stayed up by moving elsewhere.

Couldn't that just be in a way faked though? I don't mean the sticker being wrong, but you can swap backs in under a minute.

I did it over nine months ago so I don't care to google and try and find the where to do it exactly but there is a fast fix. All it needs is a AA battery, 2 small pieces of wire (one for each side) and you connect the wires to two spots on the board/chipset and it wipes the data in an instant. I had some crazy scores on the Pinball I got last year and wasn't going to stand for it, then found the battery trick and it popped it back to factory settings.

There is quite a range in offerings and quality with the modern after market virtual boy stuff that's for certain. I used to dabble a bit when I had a FB+ for a bit, but I don't anymore. I've been hoping more proficient and complete works would come along with the VUE tools and rest getting better all the time. I think there's plenty of untapped potential yet. I mean look at Hyper Fighting, that's insane, and that one I do have a cart for.
