I think the problem for games like Donkey Kong would be the controller. DK needs a 4-way stick. Otherwise it's pretty unpleasant to play. There is no 4-way stick/controller for the Wii. The d-pad on the controllers is 8 way, ditto for the available arcade stick options, and I don't think they have an option to switch to 4-way.

The problem with using an 8-way stick with a 4-way stick game is what does it mean when you are in a corner, where you inevitably end up? Is the upper left corner equal to UP or to LEFT? They try to finagle it by looking at where you were coming from, but that's not always right.. Inevitably you find yourself trying to go up and you go left, or whatever, and it's frustrating. I.e. the Wii, Gamecube, DS, etc, is not made for DK. Sad but true.


They somehow do it with other 4-way games. NES Donkey Kong, NES Donkey Kong Jr., Pac Man, etc.

I remember when I first got my Wii. I used to check the VC downloads each Monday. Now I know that it's mostly just crap stuff or, at least, stuff that seems like it would be crap - which kind of sucks because there are independent developers out there who might make a really great game that I'd miss because there's just so much crap.

I don't want to sort (and spend money) my way through a barrel of rotten apples to find the one good one.

A lot of these DL games (Wii and PS3) have been little more than mildly amusing. Like you paid your $5-10 for them but you grow bored with them after a week. There are some gems, they just seem to be few and far between.

What the Virtual Console needs is Donkey Kong Arcade and Donkey Kong 64. You'd think after the popularity of DKCR we'd see one if not both of them.


They could re-release the Game Cube games (well, some select ones) as VC games and I think they'd sell well.

I'm probably the odd-ball with this but I'd rather have DL games and a menu to get to them than a shelf full of games. Just less to keep up with.

I feel the same way about movies and music. I just want the digital versions and a way to navigate them rather than shelves full of boxes.

Wii doesn't have anywhere near the storage capacity for GameCube games. Plus, download sizes are limited to 40mb. I'd rather have stuff on my shelves because prices are too high for me to justify buying digital versions at the same price when I get less in return. Sure I have to pop in discs into my system but it's a small price to pay for something I can keep forever.

Also, I'm thinking about buying a Bit.Trip game. What would be the best one to buy?

The Imminent Arrival of Spring Means Beautiful Plants and Hordes of the Undead

2011-03-14
Spring is just about a week away. It's a time of renewal. For some, that means the budding of new flowers. For others, it's a chance to reanimate their dead tissue and go on the attack. Over on the Nintendo DSiWare service, Plants vs. Zombies reminds you that when the mob comes for you, foliage might be the only friend you have left. If you're in the mood for a different kind of single-player strategy, the WiiWare service shines some Liight on a creative new puzzle-solving game that incorporates color, light and music.

Description: Get ready to soil your plants in the zombie-zapping phenomenon from PopCap. A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and the only defense is your arsenal of home-guardin' plants. You'll have to think fast and plant faster as you fight the fun-dead through day, night and fog, in the swimming pool and on the roof. Dig into five game modes and get more zombie-zapping action in four new mini-games. You can even make your own zombie creation with the Zombatar! The fun never dies.



Rabi Laby

One day Alice was looking for Rabi and finally found him right before he jumped into a small hole in a tree. Without thinking twice, Alice jumped in after him. This is where their magical adventure begins. Alice and Rabi encounter intriguing animals and creatures that may lead them to the exit, or stop them from escaping. Together they will explore and discover things unlike anything they've ever seen before. They must work as a team to find the key and escape each area of the mighty labyrinth. Both Alice and Rabi have their own unique abilities and you must switch between them in order to complete each area and ultimately escape the labyrinth's grasp. The labyrinth awaits you...



5 in 1 Mahjong

Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Description: Play Standard mahjong without all the bells and whistles. You can choose from more than 300 layouts or try different variations of the game. In "Countdown," you only have 20 minutes to clear the tiles. With "Remember," you can train your memory as every tile is only briefly visible. Don't dally in "Shuffle" mode - the board will rebuild itself if you don't make a match in time. In "Match" you simply need to search for particular tiles. The tile images are strikingly sharp, making them easy to recognize. Choose your favorite tile design, plus enjoy the great soundtrack and high-quality animation that create an authentic gaming experience. Challenge yourself with a range of difficult layouts. If you are stuck, hints will help you out.





WiiWare

Every puzzle makes a different song each time you play. Nonstop mode in Liight is a fast-paced arcade puzzle game that uses the same basic concepts you learn in Solve mode in a constant struggle for a high score. Liight also has a Create mode to make your own puzzles any way you want, and a Share mode to send them to your Wii friends using the WiiConnect24 service.

- The big one is Monster World IV; Sega confirmed that they are localizing it.
- Wonder Boy in Monster World (Arcade)

Much awesome VC news lately. Definitely down for most of those Sega titles and Chrono Trigger is a no-brainer even with the DS and PSX ports.

Bring on Final Fantasy III.

EDIT - The disparity in quality between the VC releases and Wiiware continues to be hilarious...

Chrono Trigger - A young man is transported into the past, altering the course of history and the outcome of the future. He has to find his way home, but first he must travel to the outer edges of time to repair the world's chronology. On the way, he encounters strange friends and foes, uses incredible devices and vehicles, and penetrates and neutralizes the fortresses of the past, present and future. A paradox has been created. If he does not restore the order of time, nothing will ever be the same. He is the one who will become a hero. He is Crono.

vs.

Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix - Join Gabrielle and her monster friends as they dance along to a spooktacular selection of songs. Grab your Wii Remote™ controller and dance along as you shimmy, shake and spin in time to the music. There's trouble in Monster Town: Vlad the Vampire's loyal zombies have disappeared. Gabrielle and her monster friends will have to bust some serious moves on the dance floor in order to lure them back. Along the way, maybe they can uncover the identity of the mysterious creature that's terrorizing Monster Town's zombies. Up to four players can show off their best moves in the game's multiplayer mode. (Additional accessories are required for multiplayer mode and are sold separately.) Short and full versions of songs let you dance as much as you want. Unlock tons of outrageous outfits and items.

I'm so glad that I grew up in the 80s/90s as opposed to nowadays.

I don't think the NES one will come out here. I'd love for it to happen complete with a translation but thus far, changes to VC games have been extremely minimal (changing Enix to Square Enix in Actraiser is about the only example I can think of off the top of my head).

I was referring to the SNES one by its original US name. We got CT and FF IV. Japan is slated to get FF VI (I think I read that somewhere). We'll get SNES III and it'll blow me away again.

I loved Super Adventure Island when I was a kid, but I seem to recall it being pretty hard. And it's one of those games where you start at the beginning of the game every time.

I'm boycotting the VC until they put out Pro Wrestling (NES).

I'd also like to see R.C. Pro-Am, Skate or Die and T&C Surf Designs.
