Barcode Battler owner here. Me and my friend had a huge collection of cards made by ourselves. We did our own drawings and shit and my dad laminated the cards for us.

We had some really intense tournaments. We did draft, banned cards we didn't want to see etc. To remind you, Barcode Battler enabled characters, weapons, defense and healing items.

Our roster was amazing. We had your generic video game characters, but some more obscure ones as well.

goddamn digimon was my favorite thing ever as a kid. I didn't even give a shit about pokemon until like 2002 because I was too caught up in digimon personally.

I seriously think it was literally just me and one other kid in our entire school. And what are the odds I'm a NEET loser and last I saw him, he was a massive emo tool.

>>323736276

>Because they weren't the original digipet

I meant to say that they weren't like the original 1997 digimon digital pet, the toy that started the franchise and likely the first virtual pet with a co-op battle mode.

I loved my grey (I think an Augumon) digipet so when I saw Pox I expected a similar thing.


>>323736456

Pox was a game about an Alien "virus" like species invading earth and infecting humans.

9/11 happened and then the Anthrax scare, an event where terrorists tried mailing activated anthrax to certain political people and a mailman got infected.

This caused a powerful fear of bio-terrorism and thus anything referencing diseases was shut down.

>>
>>323737854

Handheld electronic game is usually what they called things that used old, calculator tier LCD tech, the kind of shit Tiger was known for. In fact I used to call them "calculator games" to differentiate them from handhelds like the gameboy.

If you're talking about the "inbetween" where the games used LCD pixales it's likely because by the time they started doing that better types of screens were available.
