In 2003 Nintendo was going to release e-Reader cards based of the G&W games. (If you brought the e-Reader you would have already gotten the Manhole card bundled with it).
There was going to be three different versions of the cards.
- Classic G&W games - Color G&W games - Collectors (which uses Mario characters)
I'll admit I'm still confused if the "color" versions are just G&W with color or taken from G&W gallery series with the Mario characters instead. But the Collectors series has Mario characters so wouldn't that make that last point invalid?
I thought originally that the "Color" and/or "Collectors" versions of these games might have ended up appeared in G&W Gallery Advance, but that was released in 2002 while this is 2003.
Interesting to see them mention "Mr Game & Watch returns!"
They mention a Nintendo Power magazine talking about them as well but don't say the number (but did come out in 2003 so that narrows it down).
I thought this would be a good thing to post since, I don't think many have heard of this and these cancelled e-Reader cards aren't mentioned on NinDB (but admittedly the e-Reader was never released there).

I had and still have the issue about this. And yes, "Color" means the Game & Watch Gallery versions. Those cards up there use the G&WG artwork and if you look closely you can see a "Fire" card with what looks a colorized screenshot of the G&WG1 version (or maybe it's the G&WG4 version, I can't tell but it's doubtful these would contain GBA-quality games).

Color may refer to the GBC and they may contain Gallery 1-3 games, if the Gallery 1 Fire (in GBA resolution, it seems) screenshot is indicative of anything. Collector could have been taken from Gallery Advance, by that logic.
nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.

Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.

nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.

nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.

nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)

nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.

nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.

nocturnal YL: Finally starting to see some good equipment made out of my post-game item optimisation in Atelier Sophie 2. I don't plan to write a review now as I don't feel a burning need to unlike BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light; I'll wait until my next game's done.
