Wow. Thanks for sharing this stuff. Some of the images are disturbing as hell.

I used to own a Virtual Boy and a Game.com, and I derived enjoyment from both.
Wario Land for Virtual Boy is a really good game. I hope Nintendo gets around to rereleasing it on 3DS Virtual Console.
I never had anything for it but Red Alarm and Mario Tennis, but yeah, I'd buy the whole library if they put out 3DS versions (and if I had a 3DS :P).
Actually, I'd just straight up buy another Virtual Boy if the fancy struck me particularly hard, and not just because I love humorously outdated/poorly conceived tech. I really do look fondly back on the system.
I've actually thought of buying a Virtual Boy, even though I'd probably never play it. But there is something fascinating about it, like you said. I recently saw a copy of Jack Bros on an auction site with a price tag of around $150, and also learned that was the first Shin Megami Tensei game released outside Japan.
Most (if not all) of my 10-year old posts are probably gone by now. The forum I frequented back then doesn't really save old stuff, just from 2009 and later. Thinking back to what I used to post about back then doesn't seem all that bad in my head, but I'm pretty sure I would be horrified if I read any of them. I could be a bit of an elitist when it came to movies and stuff, so I got into a few arguments with people who just wouldn't understand why you'd watch black and white Russian films.
How was X-Wing Alliance? I remember reading a lot about it back in the day and thinking it sounded awesome, but I never actually got to try it.
Spookin' with Scoops: Friday the 13th with Ryan sitting in. Seeing and hearing them trying to work out what makes that godawful, but weirdly interesting, game tick is just hilarious. The ending is such a downer, but a really funny downer. Rewatched it the other day and actually got a bit emotional.
The whole Chrono Trigger Endurance Run is great, but I have to say that my favorite moment is hearing Patrick's reaction when Ryan names the time machine.
I also love the Beyond: Two Souls spoilercast Patrick recorded with Alex, Kirk Hamilton and Justin McElroy. Even though I've barely played that game, I love listening to them tearing it apart.
