I’d been looking forward to it, sure, but I forgot all about it until I got a surprise call from the local game store to inform me that my pre-ordered copy had come in. This is something that should have been great news, but instead it felt like a call from a girl I’d gone out with and never called back.

But what made it into what it is? Why is it, a Game Boy Color game, rarer and more valuable than any of the original Game Boy games which have age on their side? The answer is simply an unfortunate circumstance.
