My Virtual Boy arrived today, to my shock it came with Manuals for all of the games with the exception of Red Alarm. But even still that was a fantastic bonus that I wasn't expecting.

Also it works perfectly (I tested every single game), and that is absolutely fantastic!

I am now excited for my Flashboy+ and wall plug piece and adapter to come in the mail! Then eventually Teleroboxer and Mario Clash because even though I have a Flash cart on the way its important for me to have most of the good carts as I am a collector.

I picked up a Sega SG-1000 game, Hero.  It is the first Sega My Card that I`ve ever gotten, I really love the boxes they come with:

Good deal at 500 Yen.
A place near me has games too, but all of them cost either 980 or 1480 Yen. :/
Sometimes they have half-off sales, though.

I love the SEGA card games, I have a few of the Mark III ones as well as the card catcher device. The card catcher even works when inserted into my Japanese Master System cart slot, which is completely pointless as the console has it's own dedicated card slot but interesting nonetheless.

Yeah, they really are great aren`t they? 

I have one of those card readers too, I just bought it last year because it was cheap but haven`t found an actual use for it yet Grin

Indeed they are very cool, only wish there were more of them. It's one of the reasons I love the PC Engine, those HuCard games are damn sexy!

Re the card catcher, I bought mine cheap from YHJ, it was 500y boxed and complete (even had the baggie) with manual - doesn't even look like its been used. To buy it here via eBay would have set me back at least $40, funny how prices fluctuate pending country. Anyhow, the reason I bought mine was to use it with my SC-3000, this only has a cart slot so the card catcher is needed here. Another use for it would be with the SG-1000 II which also lacks a card slot.

In the end though, I do all my Master System gaming on my Japanese console. It would be nice to have things like the Mark III etc, but it's just too expensive to get hold of one. I got the SC-3000 as even though the games work on the Master System, they display slightly differently due to the colour palette.

Thats a HUcart, not a HUcard!! Grin

Frank - funny, I paid the same for my card catcher CIB!  I have an SG 1000 II as well so I guess I can use it on that, I`ve just been using my Mark III since it is easier.  Kind of a neat little thing to have though!

Do you have the FM expansion for your Mark III? Very interesting to hear the difference in sound on many games when played with the FM sound chip.

I have the SMS (J) model 1 with built in FM sound and the sound is awesome! I was really amazed of the difference. I wonder why the EU/US version was left without it.

I wonder why the rest of the world had to miss out on the FM chip too, especially given the systems popularity in most PAL regions.

Most FM games feel like half a console generation higher just because of the music. The real shame is that all the latter SMS games that pushed the system to its limits had to work with the lame PSG that can't even quite catch up with the graphics.  I'd love to have FM-Sound in games like G-Loc, Sonic Chaos, GP-Rider or Deep Duck Trouble.

Today, I picked up locally another Virtual Boy battery and Teleroboxer with manual for $20.

I have finally completed my order for a FlashBoy+ flash cartridge for my Virtual Boy, so that should arrive in a week.
