Funny, but I'll bet this old game is actually a system seller for Nintendo.

But, it's the Wii U so let's be realistic. If there is a release date, add six months to it.

Sorry to be the Baby Ruth in the pool...

Yes, it is a system seller, if by that you mean 50-100 WIIUs sold on the basis of EB. I'm really glad EB is finally getting a re-release, as it's a criminally under appreciated title that needs to be played by any and everyone. However, it ain't moving WIIU the way it needs to be moved.

Same goes for the Wind Waker HD thing. It's cool that they're giving long-time fans stuff to goof with -- or "new to me" content for early WIIU adopters -- but release some original titles already.

It has me *very* intrigued, but thanks to the Vita, I'm now skittish of new hardware. Since the Vita is "rereleased console shit you didn't ask for and PSOne games, but portable!" to me, I'm wary of picking up a Wii U and have it become my "2013 Earthbound machine." I'd buy other games, sure. But I already have Wind Waker on disc still (duh, who would sell that?).

I'm far more interested in a Wii now, but apprehension remains. Might just wait for the price of the console to drop, the internal storage to bump up, for Earthbound to be released, or some combo of the three. Not going to run out the door and pick one up now.

Sounds like Nintendo hit a home run in their presser this morning. Oracle on eShop? Fuck. Yes.

At this point, everyone just needs to accept that any original games wont hit till the holiday season.

It seems kind of weird that Nintendo will be selling Super Metroid on the Wii U virtual console with the officially launch next week when it's going to be 30 cents next month... So I hope everyone remembers to wait to get it for 30 cents. :lol:

So, really, we just need a "Year of [character]" every year, since it seems to be causing some truly killer things to happen.

So next year should be Year of Samus.

Then Year of Starfox.

Then Year of Captain Falcon.

Then Year of Ganondorf.

Then Year of Birdo.

Then Year of Birdo AGAIN.

Then Year of Yoshi.

Then Year of OH SHIT IT'S BIRDO AGAIN, FOOLS.

Not a single SNES game on the 3DS VC yet, but one would expect that it is coming.

I hope Nintendo's just waiting for E3 to talk about their eShop games for the Wii U because they've ignored that option so far the past few months where it would've been a big help during the drought.

This is particularly annoying, because the 3DS has the perfect layout for SNES games. Gameboy games are cool and all, but black and white pixels seems like a waste of the tech.

Well... The SNES could output at a higher resolution than the 3DS. The emulator may require a bit of work before Nintendo would deem it ready for use.

Can you gift digital content on the Wii U? I'm gifting the shit out of Earthbound, maybe forever.


So I've never played this and have no idea what the crazy fanboy love for it is all about.

Thus, you should get a Wii U and gift Earthbound to me when it releases ;).

It's not a fanboy thing. It's just a very well written game, it's engaging, thoughtful, and touching without being saccharine. It's not that the mechanics or graphics are beyond everything else of its day, it's that the writing is so smart and funny.

Also, if you've played enough JRPGs to know the rigmarole, then EB is even better.

If you have every intention of buying it, you should know that it's illegal -- not to mention indecent and horrible of you -- to emulate it on a PC. That's a very bad idea.

I have so much other stuff to play I wouldn't even consider emulating it. That's why I was suggesting Strell gift it to me. Then I'd feel compelled to play it ;).

I apologize for being off topic. No one seems to us the WiiU trade thread. Does anyone have Lego City Undercover for trade? I am looking to trade my Scribblenauts Unlimited for it. Thanks!

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:ps3: Batman: Arkham City

:wiiu: Mario Kart 8
:3ds: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King Why'd You Steal Our Garbage

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

Just create a trade thread. Also, no one is going to make that trade.

There already is one: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=332442, but unfortunately, not many people use it. While the launch window has been extremely slow, I am trying to just swap a game to keep my WiiU on.

I am a lot more excited than I probably should be for the VC launch later this week. I'm just really enjoying playing the old games on the gamepad.

And even though the launch lineup is small, I'm not going to complain since it includes Super Mario World and I can only play so many games at once.

If they could only get eight games ready for the launch of Wii U Virtual Console, we're in for a rough ride.
