I was playing Mega Man 3 and The Legend of Zelda a while ago but I haven't played them for more than a week.

Final Fantasy on VC, Joy Mech Fight on ... um, I'm playing it legally on a Famicom, guys.

It's a shame this game never came out here or got a sequel. Considering the limitations of the Famicom, it's an impressive game. Would have loved to see an SNES sequel.

Come on, friends,

Need a second opinion before grabbing that unknown new game? Come check out my reviews at WiiWareWave, "The Friendliest Nintendo site on the 'Net."

I was having a game of Alex Kidd In Miracle World the other day. This game is the video game equivalent of kicking your ball over a wall in the school yard, which at the time seems to reach up to the sky, then when you've grown up you realise the wall is about 5 foot high and you can almost step over it.

Back in the day this game was long, hard and took many a month to master. I played through it from start to finish in about 45 minutes, very easily.

Still a quality game though... probably the best non-Nintendo 8bit platformer.

Haha, nice analogy, Trin. I can think of a lot of games like that now. Super Mario World leaps to mind, though that may be equally due to having played it a million times, not necessarily a complete difficulty deficit.

I've played Super Mario World so many times I can now play it from 0-96 exits in a few hours. It's always been on the easy side though, that game, even back in the day.

It remains a fantastic game either way, of course.

Donkey Kong and Mario Bros on the VC are in the "constant play" pile, as i am always trying to up my score. Punch-Out too is in pretty frequent play-rotation. But it's getting near time for another play through both LoZ and AoL (i play through them both every couple years or so). Just debating whether to d/l the VC versions just to have them on the Wii or to stick with the GC collection, or tempt fate by playing on my NES carts; no battery issues yet (still have years-old saves on them last time i checked), but they are 20+ years old!

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong. Also, Lindsey Stirling. Because violin awesomeness.

I've just beaten Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap on VC.
And Ys Book I & II, but that's technically a 16-Bit remake of two 8-Bit games.

Technically, the Turbo Duo is an 8-bit console, with 16-bit prowess, so yeah, Ys Book I & II counts.

I am StarBoy91, and I love all things 16-bit =)

FINAL FANTASY.

I have to capitalize it because Nintendo told me too. Also I think it's funnier in all caps. I imagine some deep-voiced dude screaming FINAL FANTASY at the top of his lungs.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.
