@SuperSmashBros.Fan1999: Just because recent releases have been slow and mediocre doesn't mean you should sell your Wii. Play the games you already have and be happy. If that doesn't, then go ahead and get rid of your Wii.

@vio: Phoenix Wright is sorta like VC since it started on the GBA so I do not think it should be put as Wiiware but more VC disgusing as Wiiware

Even if releases have been slow and mediocre, I would not under any circumstances sell my Nintendo Wii. I said I would sell my Wii only if they were to end the Virtual Console this generation. To be honest, the Virtual Console has not reached it's full potential and will not do so this generation. It's going to take multiple video game generations for that to happen and I want to be absolutely sure I'm satisfied with it ending. Ending it this generation when the Virtual Console has so many titles left would anger numerous fans, myself included.

The problem is that Virtual Console cuts into Wiiware sales and some publishers won't want to support it for various reasons.

As a very good example how about Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Adventure ReBirth, ReBirth is a brand new entry developed specifically for the service and is only a couple of hours long whereas Rondo of Blood is a classic, with may more hours and costs no money to put on there. People are more likely to buy Rondo of Blood and that's an issue.

Also think about Final Fantasy games, they could have been on long ago but Square Enix is still making lots of money off remakes of the games so there's a lack of incentive and Nintendo can't force them to put FFIV on there.

So you don't want games from the same series on the WiiWare? Thats kinda like saying we shouldn't get YoshI's Island simply because we already have Yoshi's Story, Yoshi's Cookie and Yoshi already - so who needs yet another Yoshi rehash? Themselves a spin-off from the many Mario games already on the VC.

You're comparing apples to oranges here. The various long running series on Virtual Console were released over a period of several years and were created by the finest 3rd party developers in the business(capcom, konami, hudson and well of course nintendo themselves). Most of these games on WiiWare are being rushed out every few months with not much in the way of quality control. I mean come on, most of those Family games are crap. Do we really need 7 of them in a 2 year period?

Well, as I expected, there was yet again a crap load of more WiiWare and DSiWare, but on the positive side we got Wild Guns, much like I was hoping for today! So I can't complain too much.

Your point might be seen as more valid if you draw attention to other examples to support the claim that "most" WiiWare games are rushed.

I'd hate to say it again cause you said the same thing last week but are you really calling games like X-Scape crap?

The Family games have two unifying features; all the games are crappy and they feature the same characters in each.

However, no two Family games are alike. Each one focuses on a unique theme that no other Family game focuses upon. So they all play entirely different. But they are still crappy.

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

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

Didn't say anything about X-Scrape man. Don't know anything about that game. Those Family games however do suck a big one. $5 for Family Go-Kart Racing or $8 for Wild Guns? Yeah, tough decision there... grin

I see today's VC game being from Natsume as a good sign. They haven't released anything in a REALLY long time (far as I know, the last one was Harvest Moon, which was WELL over 100 VC games ago). If they're coming back, it's possible (though obviously unprovable) that Nintendo is making an effort to entice companies back to the service. If I had the money, I might just download Wild Guns to support them in the hopes of getting Lufia later, even though I'm not really sold on the gameplay video I watched. But I don't, so...

Stuff, the game isn't going anywhere, so when you get some extra money, go download it. :P Support these 3rd party VC releases!

@vio: You meant "crap load" in terms of "plenty" and not "tons of releases that are all crappy" so I misunderstood. But still, the principle, in fact, does remain.

Oh, and a little follow up on this "X-Scrape" game NS8. Is this a real game? I don't even see it listed here on NintendoLife's WiiWare section.

That's because it's a DSiWare game. :)

Oh sorry, it's called X-Scape, not X-ScRape. That's probably why I couldn't find it. :)

But yeah, I 'm not really concerned about DSiWare. I don't think that it's much hurting VC as it's an entirely different platform.

@vio: Maybe, if I ever actually get that kind of money. I've got stuff I KNOW I want to pay for first, whenever I finally get some money at all. Might be getting a job soon, though, so we'll see.:)

EDIT: Whilst catching up on the comments on today's release news, I noticed someone mention that the HVGN reviewed Wild Guns. I went over to watch it, and man, that video is WAAAAAAY better at giving the impression that the game is fun than what's here on NLife! I may just prioritize this game when my income increases now.:)
