Nope. The last game I downloaded was late spring. Since I got my 3DS, I haven't been bothering with my Wii much lately.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

The lack of rain here in Texas hardly effects my VC purchases. Despite, I haven't bought any VC games since Paper Mario in January 2010 :3

The last game I played was Mega Man 5 which was back in July. :p
There are still a few more SNES game on the VC i wan't to give a mega whirl, including a couple NES titles like Balloon Fight, Wrecking Crew, The Arcade version of Ghosts 'n Goblins, and maybe Faxanadu. And there are only '2' NES VC games that will get an inevitable release that I wan't and they are Mega Man 6 and Adventure Island II.

Yet I'm still on the fence with Ristar and Dynomite Heady for the Sega Genesis....Hmmmm. :p

Wave, I know this goes against me and my "original style" but how about this...

For the price of Dynamite Heady and Ristar on VC you can a few more Genesis games and get some use out of the PS3 of yours :p http://www.amazon.com/Sonic-Ultimate-Genesis-Collection-Plays...

As for currently downloading VC games, no I am not. I rather have the originals but I have 1500 points to spend still. I should probably use it on Castlevania Rebirth .

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I haven't, but I've been wanting to. Part of my problem is trying to get my Points Card used up with out any leftover points.

Yeah I bought a few last month. They were Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man 2, New Adventure Island and Lifeforce. I'm going to stop buy them for a while though because I lot of them need to be beaten. Now Wiiware on the other hand, I haven't bought anything from that since the beginning of this year.

I've probably bought at least 1 VC game almost every week since the service started. I have over 300 games. Lately I'm just catching up on games I wanted for a long time but never got yet.
If Monster world IV, Lufia and possibly Strider ever shows up that'll probably be the last few I get.
That'll depend on if anything else good comes between now and the Wii's death.

I'm picking up games I missed like Space Harrier, Spacer Harrier 2, and Alien Storm. Might get Gley Lancer as well.

@ Heavy_Barrel
Gley Lancer is a pretty good choice. I have that one and it's really cool. There's quite alot of stages and the Anime cutscenes are neat. I reccomend it!

I still have plenty in mind to download. Only thing is, I'm broke. And I really need an SD card because it's been annoying to delete stuff temporarily for space.

Every now and then I indulge in the odd game. Despite the lack of updates recently theres still a lot of great games on there, so i'm always finding something to keep me busy.

What a freakin' tool, eh?

Chrono Trigger was my last VC game. How many VC games have been released since then? 1? Or 2?

I've got 5 or so more titles on my 'maybe' list, but haven't bought anything for a couple months. However, I HAVE been buying some PSOne Classics on the PSN [via PSP] this month...

Nintendo, let's see Lufia, let's see Secrets of Evermore, let's see SNES Picross in the US, Pilotwings 64, some old NES faves like Jackal and Captain Skyhawk, Contra Hard Corps, the Strike Series, and figure out Super FX emulation already!

There are hundreds of VC games to download, yet you people complain that there isn't enough on the service? So you played all of the VC games, completed them 100%, and have nothing left to play?

:D

I just dowmnloaded Samurai Showdown 3 and it's not my type of game at all. I prefer Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. I re-downloaded Final Fantasy 3 and thought it was ok, very tedious and boring. I hate level grinding and long, drawn-out cutscenes.
