Figured I'd start this over and combine it with Wii Ware.

This week, there's downloadable fun for everyone... except those waiting on new VC games!

some wiiware games are pretty fun though

I am just waiting on a new rpg to get put out there that I can play (preferably Lufia or Breath of Fire)

Yeah, but it seams like 1 out of every 10 WiiWare games are good.

Not the first one though and also the one for the DS looks almost so different it would feel like a different game (with a very similar story right down to the names :lol: )

LOL. I'm reading the latest issue of Nintendo Power and they interviewed Cammie Dunaway. They ask why Wiiware and the VC wasn't a big part of their E3 conference. And then she says that there are always great games coming to WiiWare and VC. Sure Cammie. I'm really enjoying the VC games coming out lately. Oh, wait, THERE AREN'T ANY. XD
Anyways, one WiiWare title that is coming/came recently that has piqued my interest is Puzzle Agent. I plan on getting it soon. What does everyone else think?

If they only put in things like the Dreamcast ( Well they DID but in Sega Genesis, so why not?) and the GBA (Original and Color I guess) maybe they would have more variety.Or get Earthbound back since it was already out in America.
And don't have to get Mother 3 and Earthbound Zero since they never came out anywhere else and I never did play any of the series...

If you mean games from the Dreamcast on the service, that would be hard due to the size of the game.

I till wonder how they get TG16 Disc releases onto the service. I really need to buy more off VC.

That was pretty much my thought when I read the press release. The first aquarium game is ok but it got old quick despite the very relaxing music. (I don't know if you'd call it a game but whatever.) They're better make it up to us at Christmas time assuming this is going to continue for the rest of the year.

I predicted Nintendo to cut VC in the near future. March 2012? If anyone has played Castlevania HD, Fat Princess, Cave Story. Then you know what Wiiware should be! No reason at all why the Wii can't run Castlevania, and Fat Princess. The fact remains Nintendo has deep void of good 3rd party support. China must be the #1 contributor to Wiiware by this point. Don't believe me? Go ahead look them up. E3 was really good for Nintendo. But that was mostly first party support making the crowd drool.

There remain only two possible VC outcomes. They are holding off on VC to revive it during slumping sales, or they plan on eventually cutting it; citing too much legal blah blah work. If Nintendo does give up on VC it will permanently destroy any new revenue for games like Chrono Trigger.

Waku Waku 7 would be awesome sauce (along with Astra Superstars which is part of the same canon I believe) Along with Last Blade

Wiiware could still use more Mark of the Wolves though.

I have a ton of WiiWare games that are great and some that aren't so much... Blaster Master Overdrive, Bomberman Blast, Bubble Bobble Plus, Cave Story, Crystal Defenders R1, Dr. Mario Online RX, Final Fantasy IV The After Years, Grill-Off With Ultra Hand!, My Life as a Darklord, My Life as a King, Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, My Pokemon Ranch, NyxQuest, Space Invaders Get Even, Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People (1-5), Tales of Bearsworth Manor Chaotic Conflicts, Tetris Party, and WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase. I bolded the ones I'd recommend. So far, none of them are what I'd call bad, but several fell short of what I expected (for example, there's really nothing I would call "plus" about Bubble Bobble Plus... seems like Bubble Bobble with updated graphics and nothing more - the PSP version was far superior.) So far, the best ones are definitely DEFINITELY FF4TAY, and MM9 & 10.

Oculin
08-17-2010, 04:56 PM
Tales of Monkey Island is a bad port of a good game.

I need to beat FFIV so I can look at that game and say how much I want it then not buy it.

Brineboy

Ufouria actually looks pretty cool
I watched about half of a speedrun of it today and it kind of reminds me of Super Mario Bros. 2 a bit but not so much that its a clone
It also has some pretty good music and it seems like it could be a pretty long game (since the speedrun was around 40 minutes long) so expect that it should last you awhile

Im still waiting on a new rpg to get released though :\

Am I right in thinking that Nintendo can't release the original Goldeneye on the Virtual Console because Rare own the rights to it. Since Rare is now 'owned' by Microsoft it would be very difficult for Nintendo to acquire rights to the game.

I haven't heard anything. The game was absent from Nintendo's release list for Q4 in EU

Considering how much praise it is getting, I doubt WayForward would leave the game in North America. Then again, the first game never came out in Europe as well, but the title only got a limited release even here in NA.

I really want to try out Pokemon Rumble. Sure, the developers got a bit lazy with simply porting the designs from My Pokemon Ranch to this game but considering the price and different standard of gameplay, it's worth delving into. From what I've seen of it, the stats basically look random, which completely changes the method of battling. Just simple mindless enjoyment~

They're still trying to figure out what they want to do with the WiiWare version of the title. They didn't want a deliver a dumb down version on WiiWare, so they are looking into some options. They mentioned a possible retail release. But yeah, who knows at the moment.

The reason they are having trouble is cause of size limitations on WiiWare.

Retail for Super Meat Boy Wii seems like a good idea for me. If it means putting all of the content that the XBLA and PC version has (and possibly even more?), then by all means.

GrimsChild
12-22-2010, 03:59 PM
I doubt they'd put extra content on. Team Meat is having problems getting the regular sized game included due to Nintendo's capped file limit.

Bought Mario Party 2 and Ocarina of Time this morning. I haven't got to try OoT (it's my first onership of it. EVER!), but played MP2 with a brother. It's fun until you get a game that you get ganged up on and end up losing an 80 coin award (with 20 originally being mine). Also went and bought 8000 Wii Points and a 4 GB SD Card. I only plan on using 6400 Points so far, so I don't know what I'll do with the rest. Sagema's right. It would be cool to have a Mario Party 2 game against some TSG members.

I've heard that Adventure Island 2 will come eventually. And while looking around GameFAQ's WiiWare and Virtual Console Message Boards, I heard that the ESRB has rated Bomberman Hero (1 of the Bomberman games for the Nintendo 64) for the Wii (Meaning that it could be on it's way to the Virtual Console).

Apparently, Yoshi's Island hasn't come to the VC yet because of some issues with the Mode 7 emulator. I don't remember where I read that, but that's what I was informed of.

And EarthBound will never come to VC because of legal issues. There are way to many pop-culture references throughout the game in every aspect, from dialogue to musical pieces. Itoi was offered a VC release so long as he changed/removed ALL the references, and he didn't go for it. I'm glad, because that's what I love about EB, what it is.

Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 6, Mega Man X, Lufia, LaMulana(Wiiware remake), and many more great games are supposed to come out soon. This week however Nintendo chose to leave the store completely barren. No VC, no wiiware. Just a few demos and Darts! Yeah darts... I talked to Nintendo at GDC and the US rep there said they have almost no control over VC. I asked him who does. His response was basically, "I don't know." That's the problem with VC. There is no main person in charge. Instead he said a lot of it was tied up in lawyers and PR. Almost like a black hole or red tape. It was nice to see how much he knew about the older games. Clearly they played games like Mother 3, and have a desire to see them released. The problem is no one is in charge of that system.

I'll definitely be getting Chrono Trigger, though, since I've not played more than a few minutes of it [lies and slander, I know :T].

I wish we'd see more N64 games, but I know that's improbable since A. they take up more space [isn't there a cap on the size of games on the VC?] and B. I honestly don't know what else I'd want on there outside of Megaman Legends/64 or Pokemon Stadium 1 or 2 [which would probably be severely limited anyway without use of the transfer pak].

The Main Menu on the title screen has an option where you can go to download the other chapters (Wi-Fi Access Required because you'll be connecting to Nintendo Wi-Fi). Each chapter except the last chapter (The Crystals) costs 300 Wii Points (The Crystals costs 800 Wii Points, but it has 3 chapters in it like the 1st Tale which comes with the game. The others are just 1 chapter each). In other words, you need 3,700 Wii Points to download the game and all the chapters.

To play a tale, you just select New Game and pick which Chapter you want to play. Just make sure you save each tale to a different file (You'll need about 9 files for all the Tales. You get 30 files though, which is more than enough).

I'm convinced after the many years of torture that is called VC, 3DS virtual store. Nintendo can't be responsible for an online store. They need to make a deal with Steam. If the Wii2's(next gen) virtual store is handled completely by Nintendo it'll be another Wiiware shovelware circuit, waiting 6-9 months for a good game. There are over 1,000 VC games that will never launch on the Wii. On the bright side they released almost the entire Turbo Graphix 16 library.

Games in Limbo- Archon, Batman, Bionic Commando, Code Name Viper, Crystalis, Deja Vu, Double Dragon 2, Duck Tales 2, Flying Warriors, Friday the 13th, Godzilla, Gyromite, Hydlide, Ikari Warriors, Ironsword: Wizards & Warriors II, Journey to Silius, Karnov, Kung Fu, Legacy of the Wizard, Metal Gear, NARC, Paper Boy, Pop Eye, Rampart, Shadowgate, Snake's Revenge, Spy Hunter, Street Fighter 2010, Strider, Tetris, Top Gun, Uninvited, Vice Project Doom, Wizards and Warriors III, Wolverine, and those are just a few of the NES games.

Finally! I've waited since the Wii launched for Chrono Trigger on VC. Nintendo's handle of virtual stores taught me a valuable lesson. If they can't put most of their back catalog up on day 1, it's never happening. This also applies to XBOX, PS1-2 games on XBL and PSN. Aside from full backwards compatibility, fully stocked virtual stores will be a driving factor when I buy my next gen console. Why? Because it really covers the downtime between games and removes the worry of your previous console breaking down. Old consoles don't last forever.

I'm glad to see Chrono Trigger on the VC now. I've been interested in getting it for DS, but now I can get it for a lot cheaper. :P

Its great that they're finally releasing great games for the VC again. With Chrono Trigger out now and with Final Fantasy VI, Lufia and the Fortress of Doom and Super Adventure Island II on the way I'm actually motivated to check the press releases Mondays once again. I'll be downloading Chrono Trigger soon and that'll mark the first game I've bought since Mega Man 4 came out. Yep, pretty long drought.

La-Mulana is finally going to be released on WiiWare on June 21st in Japan. U.S. and Europe release dates will be announced after E3.

Hopefully the game gets past the approval process this time.

Virtual Console will be continued on the Wii U. This includes a Gameboy section. I'm not sure if they will be playable on the tablet and 3DS or just the 3DS? I have no clue how Nintendo will transfer the store accounts from the Wii to Wii U. It looks like you can store your SD card data from the Wii to Wii U. The Wii U is fully backwards compatible with the Wii controllers. So Virtual Console will live on!

Because of the launch of the eShop for 3DS, the Nintendo Download updates won't be until Thursdays now starting this week (which explains why there isn't any new WiiWare or Virtual Console games added today. They won't come until Thursday).

FINALLY. I literally just saw FFVI Advance in the store yesterday and came this close to picking it up. I'm glad I didn't, since I've had Nintendo points from Christmas that I've been needing to spend.

Yeah it did take them a while to finally put that on the Virtual Console. I'm quite happy they put it on there I can retire my cartridge now. Now put on the Virtual Console Nintendo EarthBound, Metal Gear (NES), and loads of other games that the list will go beyond TO BE CONTINUED!

This is sad. North America has not seen a new Wii Virtual Console game for 10 weeks now.

And in Europe, they haven't seen a new Wii VC game in 5 months!

Hopefully once Wii U comes around they'll kick up the releases again. For now, seems like 3DS is really where VC focus is.

Heck, I would have loved it if they added both Snowboard Kids 1 and 2 to the VC awhile ago prior. But then again, the series hasn't been updated since 2005/2006. Eh, you never know though, it just would be nice to have old games on the VC to be very convenient.

I don't think we're going to see much in VC games for awhile. There's a couple games in the pipeline, which is a surprise given how long it's been since we've gotten one.

Also, an online enabled version of Street FIghter II: World Champions or something on the Genesis, which is cool. Although those Genesis sounds are awful.

Does the fact that Rare work for Microsoft now mean their games can't come over the Wii? I know we got DKC but we didn't get Banjo which leads me to want to know who has the rights.

Because I'm in the mood to play Blast Corps right now.

I think they were able to put DKC 1-3 on the VC because Nintendo owns the rights to Donkey Kong, while Rare owns the rights to the Banjo-Kazooie. Still doesn't explain why DKC64 isn't on there.

Not sure who owns Blast Corps tbh.

Yeah, Rare owns Banjo, Conker, and I believe Killer Instinct.

I believe Donkey Kong 64 not being on the Virtual Console has something to do with DK64 having Jetpac in it as an unlockable game and something needed to get 100%.

That can be removed though, although probably makes bringing it to VC less likely than other titles where they don't have to.

I read a pretty good argument on how EB0 should be put on Virtual Console...They said that since it's already fully translated, it should be put on Virtual Console for all to play.

Starfox 2 is completed as well and would probably sell more units, but Nintendo doesn't seem to wants to do it so.

There are a lot of easy things Nintendo could do to bring certain games to the Virtual Console.

Remove/alter the three controversial songs in Mother 2. Just accept the fan translations of Mother 1/3 and use them to bring the games to English-speaking countries. Allow a a slightly larger file size limit so games like Pokemon Stadium 2 and Resident Evil 2 can be added. Etc.

Corporate Nintendo just doesn't seem to care, though.

The one thing that mystifies me about VC right now is why Treasure hasn't put the N64 version of Bangai O up yet.

It's been a while since the last post, but there's a couple of things worth mentioning here....

First, the Wii Virtual Console is 1 game away from having 400 games on the service in North America (not counting the 10 games that were removed).

Second, La-Mulana is coming to WiiWare in North America after all. It seems EnjoyUp Games decided to publish the game. It's coming September 20th and will cost 1,000 Wii Points.

It'd be pretty funny to have a mini PK Callin thing, thanking Nintendo for finally re-releasing EB. Talk about full circle. The people working the phones would probably be sick of EB by that point though, haha.

So the Wii U VC launch lineup was revealed, and as expected, its pathetic. Took them 6 months for that? Guess we're going through the trickle nonsense again

Does anyone know if it's possible to play games bought on the Wii U VC on the 3DS? For example, MegaMan 3 is on both of their stores, so would I be able to play it on both if I already got it on one?

EDIT:: Forgot I could ask Nintendo Support about it. Apparently you can't :< Hope it becomes a sort of feature in the future though.

Technically not VC or WiiWare, but for anyone who missed it on DSi, The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition is free on the NA 3DS eShop until tomorrow (Feb. 2) at 11:59 PM PST. I'm not sure about other regions. Source: http://zelda.com/fourswordsanniversary/

The first GBA games have been announced for Wii U VC. They are:

• Advance Wars (€6.99/£6.29/$7.99) - April 3
• Metroid Fusion (€6.99/£6.29/$7.99) - April 3
• Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (€6.99/£6.29/$7.99) - April 3
• WarioWare Inc.: Minigame Mania (€6.99/£6.29/$6.99) - April 10
• Kirby: The Amazing Mirror (€6.99/£6.29/$6.99) - April 10

• Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 (€6.99/£6.29/$7.99) - April 24

North America is also getting Super Mario Bros. 3 on April 17th (almost 4 months after everyone else).

A lot of games next month. It's nice to see that for next month, the VC (well, Wii U's VC) is getting more than 1 game a week for once.

I was excited... until I saw that it said WiiU. If they're not gonna put SNES games on the 3DS (which is understandable if the 3DS can't handle those games, or if they wanted to separate handheld and console games, which clearly isn't the point now), at least let us get the GBA games on there. Heck, even just releasing the ambassador games for sale would be a step in the right direction.

I wonder though, with the NNIDs being linked together now, that maybe cross play/downloading will happen at some point? The PS3/PSP/Vita can do that with some games, so it's only natural that Nintendo might want a piece of that pie. It's probably wishful thinking, but that'd be super cool if they could.

I'm pretty hyped for all of these, and they're right on time for my birthday no less. Hoping we see Fire Emblem/Fire Emblem 7/Blazing Sword + Sacred Stones at some point, because I'd love to play those legally.
