I liked the VB. I know nobody else did, but actually enjoyed the thing. I have pretty fond memories of Wario, Teleroboxer, that vertical shooter... thing. Good times...
Anyway, there's a fun look back at Nintendo's first foray into the wonderful world of 3D at Wired.com
Word of warning though, there are no punches pulled. And you'll probably realize that the VB really never was all that great, even if you thought it was. At the time. Maybe that time was last week, maybe it wasn't. I admit nothing.
Here's hoping the 3DS fares better.
