No, I'm not kidding.

I actually did have a pretty good time playing a demo of Wario Land at the mall back in the day. Still, though...

Woohoo for Virtual Boy!  I have one, and am perpetually about two games short of having every game released in the US.  I am one of the lucky ones who don't get headaches from them.  It's fun to pull out the old conversation piece every so often.  

The release of the Virtual Boy was definitely one of the darker days for the big N.  I was at the Nintendo World store today, where they have a little museum of their hardware, with the notable exception of the Virtual Boy.  They even have an original Game Boy that got damaged in a bombing and still works!  It's case is all burned and things - it's quite impressive.

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.
