Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Ok, so I haven't touched a Virtual Boy since they were on display at Blockbuster over a decade ago, and I hear they've become sought-after as collector's items of a sort. I might be able to get one at a decent enough price, but I'm still a little unsure.
I'm most curious about Wario Land for it, which I've heard different things about, but it seems to command the most money of anything on the system. Has anyone here played through that? And if so, what are your thoughts? Is it worth getting the system just for that one game? (Be nice if Nintendo remade it as Wii Ware with 3D graphics or something)
Or are there any other games that weren't so bad after all? Needless to say, I'm wondering if this is worth pursuing now, or just waiting until I have tons of money to pitter away just for the sake of "collecting."
Clearly, no one thought it was worth the... what, $180? it was asking when it came out, with the N64 right around the corner, but what about secondhand today? Is $20 a good price for the unit? What's good for the Wario Land game? I've seen that command more than the system in some cases.
And are counterfeit games even a problem for this? Is there anything else worth considering?
