    Some time ago I played the english version. It wasn't something special, but it wasn't annoying like the most games of the genre. A good game for the two hours gameplay...

    Let's hope DS meets a smoother transition to the next system, when that happens. GBA did far better than GBC

    Though still room for improvement. The last boxed Japanese game on GBA was a year before the US. And GBA was a commercial failure in Korea. Only like 6 or so games for it were ever released there, and it had zero first-party ones. All were third-party.

    Well, what do you expect? Korea is kinda close to Japan, and ROMs are floating everywhere about the great "series of tubes" so, they can get both the hardware and the software.

    I've heard piracy used to be pretty big in parts of Hong Kong. Don't know if it still is there.

    Do you mean GBA piracy? Because, I'm sure people in China will be pirating as long as there are things to pirate. [​IMG]

    I'd like to get my hands on one of those "a-million-in-1" carts just to see what they're like. (Do you know where I can get one? eBay seems to not have any.) I hear they often use PocketNES with the ability to bankswitch and launch GBA ROMs as well as use NES games to boost the number of games to whatever they claim on the label.

    Those carts usually just have multiple versions of the same games on them, don't save ... either properly or even at all ... and the games are usually Gameboy games, even if they come on a GBA cart ... I used to sell them ... I stopped real quick, once you realize that no matter what the box art for the cartridge's packaging shows, they all have the same crap inside ... your customers get pissed off pretty quick when they've bought 6 carts from you, that all have different boxes, and when they play them later, at home, they find they've ended up with 6 identical carts.

    There are some Chinese carts ... the ones with 6 games or less on, usually ... that aren't too bad at all ... they save okay, but the battery is awful, and will need replacing quite soon.

    Oh, and you wont find them on eBay ... well, not directly sold as what they are ... some Chinese sellers will bundle them in with hardware ... because they are illegal.

    Why do they even out batteries in them at all? I'd imagine that it would get rather expensive quickly, even with crappy quality parts. Shouldn't they just use Flash?

    The ones will a zillion games don't have batteries ... that's why they don't save ... the ones with just a few games have batteries, and they do save.

    What a surprise, considering that the GBC was more of an update of the original GameBoy, rather than a successor, and not exactly ahead of its time...

    LOL. I guess so. It was pretty ancient in terms of hardware. Especially coming out like 9 years or so after the Sega Genesis.

    You mean Game Gear? [​IMG]
    But even in spite of its short lifetime it had a ton of kickass games the Game Gear could only dream of...
