Since there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable people in here, I'll try asking. I recently found a PS2 copy of Tomb Raider Legend. It included everything, including a holographic sticker. My question is, how desirable is said sticker? I don't see any listings on eBay even making mention of it being included.

That's a great Tomb Raider game if it's the one I'm thinking of on 360. But I would imagine it would make it slightly more valuable to a collector for their personal collection but I wasn't even aware this game was very expensive anyways. Someone like me would like it but I really like Tomb Raider so that's a given.

It's not an expensive game. I just know that sometimes a pretty common game may have a component worth considerably more than the game itself. Since none of the ones even saying complete showed this sticker, it left me wondering...

I think it's hilarious that people are selling preorders for a game that's still open for preorders and will still be printed well into the new year. This isn't LRG, it's Nintendo. They're not fully retarded. The last All Stars anniversary game even got an extended print, it's worth next to nothing right now.

Everyone wants the next big scalp. eBay should pull an Amazon and require a reseller license to allow listings for games still in print.

They won't because it's just more money for them, but the hassle of dealing with cancelled preorders (from both parties) can't be worth the headache and fees

And I beat it already. Is anyone else playing this? I beat it in 5 hours and 3 minutes but only with 58% item collection. It's been years since I've played it, and I didn't use a guide at all. I'm surprised how much I missed.

Post a pic. Obvious bootlegs have half sized PCBs, large ROM ICs, or wires but there are bootleg GBC PCBs that look pretty original at first glance.

No indentations, it's printed.

I'm not trusting that board either. I noticed that it's a BEAN-30 board, which I can't find in my GB games. I did find a BEAN-10 board on a very late game, which leads me to this theory:

This was a modified board from a late release game. The Nintendo branded chip does look authentic, and the codes on yours are very similar to ones I have. But the other chip is wrong. I can not find any games with a chip that big. In addition, no matter the company making it (I remember seeing Sharp, MX, and AT&T Japan), they all have the game code printed on the chip. (I also confirmed this on the few Japanese games I own.) There is no DMG code on that chip. Finally, I see there is a lot of white residue on the board. There seems to be considerably less around the Nintendo chip (hence my assumption of a modded board), but plenty around the pins and connectors on the other parts, which leads me to think it was a rather quick solder/paste job, and not cleaned well. I can't say for 100% certain without a known copy of that game, but I'd say 90% I don't like it.

I suspect you got a bootleg in an original cart case, with a fake label.

Edit: This cart looks a lot more legit: https://www.ruten.com.tw/item/show?22003233797750

Edit 2: https://gbhwdb.gekkio.fi/cartridges/ has a list of carts with varying board types you can examine.

THANK YOU for the Ruten link. I spent almost 2 hours looking for this board last night, and it's such a hard thing to come by that it just doesnt exist on the internet ... including the Database you sent me.

Ok ... fine ... that's a fair point. I don't think they knew they were selling a fake, but I also think there's a chance they did

Looking at how only a couple of his listings say authentic, I'm pretty certain he knows. He's got way too many rare games for them all to be authentic unless he was a serious collector now liquidating. Especially on those NFR carts...

Do not deal with ebay user corvette294 . He will use paypal complaints to try to extort money after the sale to get partial refunds for fully working products. He's a reseller which is fine, but his methods to get the products as cheap as possible boarder on fraud.

Needless to say, he was not pleased about me requesting a return, sending me two separate messages about it. Here is the better one:

"The game is authentic -- I have added pictures to your return request from other sellers showing the exact same cartridge label and board.

I don't understand why you opened a return without reaching out to me first, and why you suddenly think it's a "fake".

You can close the request since you received an authentic Zas, as you can see I am a gaming collector and have sold a LOT of authentic gaming stuff."

Will post more updates s they come in....

"The game is authentic -- I have added pictures to your return request from other sellers showing the exact same cartridge label and board."

So... other people are selling bootlegs too. Assuming of course -he didn't take the photos himself to try to trick you.-

Did you request the return through ebay or via messaging?

ebay return request ... which he responded first to, then he sent me a separate message asking me why I didnt reach out to him first. I get the impression he's done this dance before.

Seems likely based on that behavior. I've only ended up buying a few bootlegs (mostly music cds of all things). Their reaction lines up with the sellers that were imo knowlingly selling bootlegs. Usually they don't bother fighting it in my experience but it's been awhile. I've never had anyone want a bootleg back. Always just refund and told to keep it.

I love the search term vomit on all the game listings. Stereotypical eBay seller behavior FTL.

Just fought Ridley tonight. The Retro PC project has sucked up a lot of free time this month, but the end is in sight.

I really enjoy the boss fights in this game. In so many Nintendo games, you sit around with your thumb up your butt waiting for your boss to be vulnerable, poke them once, and repeat the same song and dance a few more times. With Metroid's bosses, you get the same periods of vulnerability and invulnerability, but you can unload on them when the window is open. It's really satisfying.
