One time I bought Zelda Oracle of AGes off E-bay and it was a pirated copy. I called Nintendo and they sent someone to investigate the guy. I don't know what happened. I could tell it was pirated cause:

1. the game didn't have the Seal of Quality on it.

2. The game was not a clear cartridge, it was in a black regular gameboy case.

3. The box was not the same quality of the Oracle of Seasons box I own (actually the pirated box was better LOL).

Anyways I got my money back and got to keep the cart. But I ended up destroying the cart cause it didn't work right (locked up randomly, can't play Zelda like that!).

I never did get ORacle of Ages, I really want that game!

Off topic but isn't the company that bought Lik-sang's online selling bit, while the real Lik-sang goes and sues Nintendo and sony, owned by Microsoft... I remember reading but also being very confused by it all.

where are the pics of the GC games? It would make sense that GBA games would be more easy to pirate since lik-sang was selling flash kits a while back.

Pressing GC games dosnt sound very profitable for people, they have to buy all the equipment and figure out how Nintendo wuhz pressing the games.

And by the way Lik-Sang STILL sells GBA flash kits. 64MB and higher now
