So... who else thinks that the new "Real Steel" movie was partially inspired by Teleroboxer?

I will probably be going to see the movie, primarily because I see Teleroboxer in it everywhere! :-)

Hah, thats cool. But I also think the idea probably evolved from Robot Wars, or, they just said "hey what if we cross rock em sock em robots with a family flick about a deadbeat dad trying to connect with his son? can we get Hugh Jackman in it? He played Wolverine so he would be perfect!...

I've always wanted a Teleroboxer movie...

EDIT: ok, maybe not "always" as the first thing I did when I was born wasn't going all hyper-eyed and yelling "I WANT A MOVIE THAT'S LIKE TELEROBOXER! YEAH!" despite being born around a time the VB was still being sold

Wow... born at the time the VB was still being sold? That makes you quite the youngin ;-)

Let's see... I would have been in the 8th grade when the Virtual Boy was released, but since I wouldn't have my first job until 12th grade, I had no ability to jump on the Virtual Boy bandwagon, since my parents swore that they would never buy me another system after the NES, a promise which they kept, and since the VB was already defunct when I actually had money to start buying it and its games.

It actually wasn't until April of this year, literally less than only 4 months ago, that I first thought of the Virtual Boy again, after many years of writing it off, and decided to get one, primarily because I wanted to collect every Mario game ever made and had to get a Virtual Boy in order to do so. Little did I know what great obsession would result! :-)

Yep! I was born in January in the year of 1996!

I read about the Virtual Boy in 2007 (I think that was the year) through small Nintendo-related searches (I think I even came across this site back then!) but in 2009 I really searched up stuff about the Virtual Boy and on one fateful day in December, I read up so much about the Virtual Boy that I said "I think I want one... someday", and when I fell asleep I had a dream that I found a Virtual Boy and went to test it and I liked it but two people in the dream disliked it so they smashed it and laughed at me for being sad...

...so when I woke up from that dream, I was determined to get a Virtual Boy, and since it was already the month of December, it was the perfect opportunity to get a Virtual Boy!

I was told I could pick something big (that I would know about, but still have small mystery gifts) that would count as a christmas gift to me so... I picked a Virtual Boy

As of now, I currently have 13 games for the Virtual Boy (they all have boxes except the US version of Mario's Tennis)

Similar to how you want to collect every Mario game, I want to collect every Virtual Boy game!

...sorry for the offtopic discussion I've made!

Well, I do, indeed, hope that you can fulfill your dream and collect every Virtual Boy game ever made. I know the feeling, as I, too, know how incredibly awesome the Virtual Boy is and how there is just that "feeling" inside that tells you "only actual, original, manufacturers' copies of games count." It'll be pretty tough, though, with the top 3 rarest ones.

Right now, I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want to get Virtual Lab. It's the only Virtual Boy game that I'm missing (since I don't plan to collect the Japanese versions of games, for which English versions are available). Despite the fact that Planet Virtual Boy has it as the 3rd rarest game for the Virtual Boy, I have only ever seen one copy of it for sale on Ebay since I started tracking the Virtual Boy almost 4 months ago. In that same period of time, I've seen, I think, 5 copies of Virtual Bowling and 3 copies of SD Gundam Dimension War on some Ebay site around the world, and I was able to snag one of each (though I had to dig deeper into my pockets than I ever thought I would for a video game!), but getting Virtual Lab seems near impossible.

The main dilemma that I'm facing is that thanks to the FlashBoy Plus and Richard's awesome reproduction cart, I've already played Virtual Lab and know how good of a game it is. Thus, I know that it is not a very good game at all. In fact, I LOVE Waterworld compared to Virtual Lab, but then again, I think I'm one of the few people in the world who actually enjoys Waterworld and thinks it is a fun game that captures the essence of classic gaming. Nevertheless, I must confess that compared to all the other Virtual Boy games, Waterworld falls down near the bottom of the list of favorite games to play.

So the question is: do I really want to spend a ton of cash, just to collect a game and make my Virtual Boy video game collection "complete" (according to my own standards), or should I just let this one go, especially since the game is so bad?

Right now, I'm looking at the one available, new copy at gamebaz.com, and I'm not motivated to spend that kind of cash on such a bad game (plus, I don't currently have the cash, so I couldn't right now even if I wanted to). But I suppose that, if one does pop up on Ebay again in the near future for a price that is more reasonable, others might have to contend with me in the auction.

I just went to go see Real Steel!
I officially dub it "Teleroboxer: The Movie" ;)

In fact, Real Steel makes me want to go get Teleroboxer even more! :D

When I heard about this movie I also thought about Teleroboxer instantly.

So, it is a movie worth watching?
I don't mind action-packed hollywood movies, but I often get offended by Hollywood's cliché.
