That can't be what the actual game description reads like for ZAMN, can it?

I never played this, but I keep hearing good things. Might pick it up.

In addition to ZAMN being released (which is awesome in an of itself), Excitebike World Rally has been announced as a Wiiware title. Releases on November 9, complete with online play, track editor, multiple controller options, etc.

As for updating this thread, this might happen today/tonight. A few people on these forums can attest that I've been gone for a good reason, which was my little sister's wedding. I won't really go into specifics but it was a huge undertaking over the last several months. In the end, it was an amazing accomplishment, and went off without a hitch.

So anyway, big day for Wiiware/VC.

I will probably buy it, but if Cave Story comes out next week, Excitebike waits I'm afraid. Also forgot that it has a Track Editor.

Whatever, ZAMN on VC is definitely a surprise.

Wow, it is basically Nintendo Power live. I cannot decide if that is a good or bad thing, but the level of camp isnt yet sufficient so I'm leaning towards bad...

I am completely shocked to learn about Excitebike. Totally was expecting them to just reveal Castlevania the Adventure Rebirth. I don't think I'll buy it, but it's cool to see old stuff remade.

There's no part of me that would fit in the memory limit.

Edit: Excitebike World Rally trailer (only need to watch 0:40 - 1:10):

Oh my god who the Fuck are those tools in those videos? I literally could not finish watching the Castlevania one. The Excitebike one was passable only with Strell's instructions on where to start the video.

I'm blaming them for Nintendo not putting enough games on the VC.

ZAMN is good, Golden Axe is... good but 900 points is a joke.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Even with the SD Card? Maybe you could do episodic releases.

I've never played Zombies Ate My Neighbors. I'd get it, but the lack of monies for the points is an issue, and I'm not quite intrigued enough to dip into the small stockpile I have left.

Cave Story or Excitebike, though...now those could be worth it.

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

Could? I'm under the impression his releases are always episodic.

Looks pretty good. Don't think I want to watch any more, though. Don't want to spoil it. I think I'll have to pick this game up when it's released.

I didn't know that there was ever a Yie Ar Kung-Fu sequel! Way back when it was in the arcades my brother was quite into the original. I was never any good at it, though, and have never been good at any fighting game since. I can't get past the hit buttons as fast as you can stage... and losing.

Yie Ar Kung Fu was my favorite arcade game growing up, but I could never beat Blues, the last opponent. I remember being close, one or two hits away from winning, and then getting knocked out. Then a few years back I played it via MAME and utilizing MAME's save feature, was able to knock that bastard out. After over 15 years, I was finally able to see what was after the last opponent:

The first f'ing stage, repeated. No ending, no congratulation message. I haven't played it since.

I just bought Lost Winds and Lost Winds 2- both are fantastic. I also bought NyxQuest- which I just barely started, but seems great. I love the opening video, and atmosphere.

I am most definately going to buy Castlevania ReBirth and ExciteBike World Rally.

I have a question: does anyone here have Lit? If so, do you recommend it? Why or why not? Thanks!

Anyone have Sin & Punishment? I'm thinking of getting that since it's expensive to import.
