- I got tired of my Nintendo DS Download Station cartridges not each being in a proper case so I designed some artwork real quick in Photoshop, printed & cut them out, and put them into some extra Nintendo DS cases I had laying around. Now my DS Download Station cartridges each are in a proper case and look great next to all my other DS games, and my other DS games finally stopped making fun of them. 🤗 If anyone wants the source files so you can make your own DS Download Station cases, send me a DM, I would gladly share them. 😊⭐️ - Music "I love you (pt. 2)" Panthurr

- Here's a rare item which I might as well show off. A rare, factory-error copy of Kirby's Star Stacker with an upside down label! The label is 100% authentic and shows no evidence of tampering. Very few upside down label error carts are known to exist, but just enough of them have been discovered to know that it's a thing that happens occasionally. VGDB also owns one for Punch-Out!! for NES, and I have seen one for Yoshi and Super Mario Bros (both for NES), and I'm sure others exist too. I don't know of any instance where official cartridge labels from Nintendo were ever available by themselves, so it's not like they were stuck on after the fact by a random individual. The upside down label error carts are very rare and have great conversational value but have very little value higher than the value of the game itself. The 2 VGDB has we got for cheap (both under $50) and those sales were well-advertised. - In the background of this picture, Cappy (from the upcoming #SuperMarioOdyssey) says hi! 😊

- Virtual Boy! ♥️🔴🔺🔻♦️🛑⭕️📛🔴♥️ - Day 4 of #RCEGenerations. The Virtual Boy by Nintendo, is Nintendo's biggest console failure, and was released August 1995, and discontinued March 1996. 14 games were made and released in North America. They are: •3-D Tetris •Galactic Pinball •Golf •Jack Bros. •Mario Clash •Mario's Tennis •Nester's Funky Bowling •Panic Bomber •Red Alarm •Teleroboxer •Vertical Force •Virtual Boy Wario Land •Virtual League Baseball •Waterworld Despite its commercial failure, there remains a dedicated and loyal Virtual Boy fanbase, which mostly reside in the http://PlanetVB.com forums. This community has produced several high quality independently released titles, such as Hyper Fighting (a Street Fighter clone) and Bound High, complete with boxes and full packaging (manuals, etc), helping to give new life to the system.

- I'm insanely happy to pick up a rare CIB copy of the North American version of Soccer Kid for Game Boy Advance (Telegames, 2002). Just try to look for one - you won't find one. The thing is - the European version of Soccer Kid is insanely _easy_ to find, and can be picked up at any time for under $10. The European version works the same as the North American version on any GBA around the world since GBA is not region locked, so from a standpoint of gaming you can just pick up a European version. Soccer Kid is not a well known or popular game franchise, so the amount of people that care about the specific North American release are few. But I'm so so happy about this one. I've had my eye out for it for about a year now, and pieced together the box, manual, and cart from different sources. 😌 👑

- Mario Kart Wii for Nintendo Wii (Nintendo, 2008). Big box edition with bonus steering wheel. - This is just one of dozens of items I've picked up from @supervideogamebros over the short, 2 year period I've known them and lived in SoCal. Today marks their 9 year anniversary as a company. They're truly among the best for retro gaming and all that live in SoCal should know who they are. Thanks Steve and Crew, here's to another 9 great years........ 🍻😅💫🎉 #9YearsOfSVGB

- My buddy @egamezjr and his amazing Generation 1 Pokémon CIB set! 😍 He picked up a VGDB edition of Pokémon Green to fill in the otherwise missing space for green. 👍🍃 - Eduardo has every single Pokémon game ever made CIB in his collection except for Pokémon Box for GameCube, which he is in the process of selling an expensive collector’s jacket so that he can pick it up. Eduardo also has every single European, Japanese, and North American release of the 3DS Pokémon games, and an extensive PS2 collection as well! He’s only 18 and has been collecting for 10 years now, so that’s pretty damn impressive! 😍

- Current GBA count: 762/1020 (75%; missing 258). - Ok back to collecting. Here’s 16 new GBA additions picked up this week. Some of them are insanely awesome like Bomberman Tournament, Mega Man Zero 4 and Puyo Pop! 😍 But others are insanely lame, like Math Patrol, Tonka On The Job, and High Heat Baseball. The game Mighty Beanz even comes with a free “gamer bean”! 😂🤣 I got the gamer bean everyone, big shot over here✋️🤚 So don’t mess w me 😌 - Of all of these, I’m most happy to get Mega Man Zero 4. After this VGDB needs only 2 more Mega Man titles to have them all for GBA (there are 16 total). I’m also very glad to get Puyo Pop - it’s essentially the same game as Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine (just re-branded) which I had and LOVED as a kid and is a really fun title overall. - I’m also also very happy to get Mighty Beanz with the gamer bean because I’m weird like that, and also Mazes of Fate appears to be quite rare - it was the only copy available at time of pickup in any condition (even loose), let alone a minty sealed as this one is. It was a great price, and it’s always great to check off uncommon-ish titles like this from the list. ✔️👍

- I wanted to show off some of my recent GBA pickups and talk for a moment about how GBA kicks ass. - First of all, I recently discovered a giant box full of hundreds of empty flattened GBA boxes that I bought years ago for like $.25 each, with the foresight of knowing that someday I’d eventually collect GBA, and then completely forgot about. I went through that box and pulled all the boxes for titles I didn’t already have CIB. Then I turned to eBay to pick up as many loose carts and manuals as I could to make CIB copies. For cheaper titles I was able to make a CIB for under $10; for more expensive titles that normally cost $50+, it only cost me like $30 tops to make a CIB. And that’s awesome. 👍 - Second of all you see that Woody Woodpecker Crazy Castle 5? It’s pretty uncommon and I’ve wanted it for like 4 years now but it always eluded me, but now I have it, suckersssss. 😈💃🏿 It’s the 5th and final of the esteemed “Crazy Castle” series, but Kemco lost licensing rights from Warner Bros to use Bugs Bunny as the main protagonist, so instead they used Woody Woodpecker (licensed from Universal Studios), which made a lot of sense to use him as a substitute seeing as how both characters have Warner Bros origins. That’s using your noggin, Kemco! 🎓⚡️ - Ninth of all GBA kicks ass and you’re all jealous admit it. You better start picking up some GBA titles if you want to fit in. There’s SO MANY great titles for GBA like Fire Emblem, Mega Man & Bass, Metroid Fusion, Golden Sun, and at least a zillion others. Just so many great titles like Zelda Minish Cap, Klonoa 2, Wario Ware, Final Fantasy Tactics, Advance Wars. Super Street Fighter. Tomb Raider. Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. I’m having trouble thinking of titles right now like Ninja Five-O, Gunstar Super Heroes, Sonic Advance 1-4, SPYRO!!!! Plus GBA had one of the best launch lineups ever with titles like F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, ChuChu Rocket!, Super Dodge Ball Advance, Super Mario Advance, Rayman Advance, and so many more! The list goes on and on... - I ran out of characters so I’ll save the other stuff I wanted to say for another post. 🤓 Play Your Games, Love Your Games! ✌️🎮
