    Just wondering what others are buying (if they are buying!) for their Game Boy collection.

    Yesterday I received a copy of Racing Gears Advance. The box is covered in stickers but the cart is in great shape and the game is brilliant. I also, finally, bought a copy of Urban Yeti. I haven't played it yet but I'm looking forward to playing this quirky GTA-like.

    Still waiting on my GB Boy Colour clones but I can't wait!

    So, what have you bought recently?

    I found a Dragon Warrior Monsters cart on eBay for under five bucks a couple weeks ago. Pretty great since I lost my old one years ago, and just recently picked up a boxed Super Game Boy.

    Damn lucky! I'm trying to get one on the cheap. Hardly can find anything bellow 20 - 30$ (with shipping). How much did you pay for yours?

    Most people that sell those things now days all know what ebay is, and I hate it. Can't get any good deals now days on most games and shit.

    My 3 in 1 Plus just arrived in the mail! Backed up a few of my GBA carts and they ran perfectly, not to mention I can now backup all my NDS games with it as well!

    I used to use this save dongle I bought years ago to do the trick but it didn't get a driver update when I upgraded to Windows 8 so I was in a lurch for quite a while.

    It's damn hard to find it cheap.
    Bought mine for 460 SEK that's about 70$ with shipping and that was cheap since it wasn't in the best condition.

    I couldn't wait for my GB Boy Colour to arrive so I got myself a backlight modded original GBA. It's pretty cool though it does remind me why I preferred the GBA Micro screen. Ghosting ahoy!

    Speaking of expensive games, I finally ponked down the cash for a copy of Warioware Twisted. It was never released over here so it cost a fortune to import it. It should be here soon though. Now, if only I could find the Boktai games at a reasonable price...

    Cool. Have you tried it out yet? I've never played it though I've always liked the idea of it.

    I think it was Metroid (the NES classic) and Mega Man Battle Network. Can't remember for sure, it was years ago.
