No VC release this week, which was expected. But the long awaited release of Sonic 4 makes up for it. Finally a WiiWare game I actually want to play.
I was just about to say that. I'm not getting it until I find out what the Holloween game is, though.

Keeps fingers crossed that it's either Castlevania Bloodlines or Splatterhouse 3. Preferably Bloodlines, but either one would be great.

Definitely. And fingers crossed that they don't give us CV: Dracula X or some crappy "spooky themed" Wiiware or DSiWare game instead.

Well so much for Bloodlines or Splatterhouse 3. Thanks for nothing NOA.
But hey, we got a 6th BIT.TRIP game in a less than 2 year period! sigh

But we got Flashlight! Surely that should make up for everything, right? Right?

I refuse to buy another Wiiware game untill NoA shows the VC the same kind of love they show Wiiware. I admit I wouldnt mind Sonic 4 but by buying it just tells them that I support the Wiiware which at this point I refuse untill they release VC games at a more consistant rate.

I just have people gift me the few Wiiware games worth buying. I'll just get Sonic 4 on XBLA when it's on sale. All my Wii points go towards te VC.

You know I seriously doubt wiiware sales will affect VC releases, boycotting one service by a few is hardly going to change policy at NoA, VC has a finite amount they can put out there, due to numerous issues I can't imagine VC 3 years or so on is ever going to have the same kind of release schedule they did early on, its just not realistic.
there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

It's not a boycott, at least not on my end. I just honestly feel that any VC game is more worth my money than anything on Wiiware. I ain't got the money to waste, Mac.

Personally I don't care what what service it falls under VC or wiiware a good game is a good game, I think the image of wiiware as a shovelware only service dominated by flash games should really have been dispelled a while ago, there are great games on that service that can rival both VC and retail, but anyone that wants to skip wiiware for names sake your loss I suppose, seems like small developers are more interested in getting their new games out there than most 3rd parties are re-releasing theirs, so the lack of VC looks likely to continue.

Yeah I would've liked to seen one of those too. At this point though there's a high chance we'll be seeing the crappy Rival Turf next week. There's always next year I suppose...

Games that would complete the VC as far as I'm concerned
NESBomberman- it'd cannibalize the Turbografx and WiiWare versionsDr. Mario- it'd cannibalize the WiIWare versionsTetris- see aboveMega Man 5- they're probably hoping MM9 and MM10 will suffice for the time beingMega Man 6- see aboveMetal Gear- it's not their series. Putting Snake in Brawl was just to please the developersDuck Hunt- they'd probably remake it insteadHogan's Alley- see aboveWorld Class Track Meet- see aboveSuper Off Road- maybe
SNESSuper Bomberman- it's up to HudsonMega Man 7- will come after Mega man 6Mega Man X- it'll come after MM6, if not MM7 firstYoshi's Island- it may have to wait til the Wii2Star Fox- see aboveEarthBound- they recognize its cult following (Melee, Brawl, etc). It'll just take awhile.
NINTENDO 64Donkey Kong 64- the Rare issue aside, they'd also have to remove the arcade gameBomberman 64- will come after all other Bomberman gamesMega Man 64- may or may not come (sweet Jove I hope not)Diddy Kong Racing- would have to replace Conker and Banjo, but otherwise it may comeMario Party- there are too many party games on the Wii as it is.
MASTER SYSTEMEcco the Dolphin- too similar to the Genesis versionColumns- it'll come
SEGA CDSonic CD- will have to wait til the Wii2Ecco the Dolphin- it'd be like Sonic SMS versus Sonic Genesis, but it'll have to wait
SATURNSonic R- they could always release the computer version insteadVirtua Fighter- they could always release the arcade version insteadSega Rally Championship- see above
ARCADEDonkey Kong- they will in due timeMario Bros.- the NES version is actually rather decentPac Man- I doubt itDig Dug- I doubt itGalaga- I doubt itSpace Invaders- I doubt itMs. Pac Man- they can just release the NES versionJr. Pac Man- see aboveDonkey Kong Jr.- the NES version is rather decentDonkey Kong 3- see aboveVirtua Fighter- could work instead of the troublesome SaturnSega Rally Championship- another Saturn substituteCruisin' USA- I don't knowArea 51- they'd probably remake it insteadSuper Off Road- maybe

I am not boycotting Wiiware games per say but I mainly bought the Wii for the VC games that they bragged on and on about prior to the Wiis release. There are still hundreds of games that they can release for the VC that there is no licensing problems. For example theres Yoshis Island that can still be released. What about Illusion of Gaia? and a few others that I cant think of right now. I know games like Ducktales on the NES or GoldenEye N64 wont come out due to licensing issues but what about Nintendos own games?
I am with Mickeymac on this one if I do find a Wiiware title like Sonic 4 or Megaman 10 than I will be purchasing it on my Xbox 360.

It's because the Wii isn't going anywhere and they don't want to release them all at once.

Yeah, I bought a Wii for the Disc games and the VC games. Since disc games I want are few in number and even the better ones are only worth a rental in my book. That just leaves VC to get my money's worth, but with the way things have been going I'm finding fewer and fewer reasons to boot up my Wii. Sure, there's some good games on Wiiware, but most are either on XBLA/PSN/Steam/App Store, or pale in comparison to games on those services, while offering more for features for similar prices. The negatives always seem to outway the positives, outside of a few games, so I just end up getting VC games, where the prices, length, and gameplay are much harder to argue against.
But rant aside, my real gripe right now, is that even with the downward trend, they still gave us a VC game on Halloween. That is until this year, where we got Happy Holidays and a Flashlight. I didn't think it was possible for them to disappoint me any more than they already have, but obviously they proved that wrong. I guess Nintendo really can't be counted on to keep consistent to anything.

There are a few games to go but I really don't think there are hundreds for Nintendo to release now, hope I'm wrong on that though but it depends on what they are willing to dig up and have rated, think the number of VC titles is somewhere between 300 to 400 titles currently. There are a few areas of VC that have been lacking VCA mostly IMO, but it seems like most of the big name titles are already on VC, mostly square-enix stuff I'm watching out for personally pretty RPG deprived in Europe for a while, VC's imports have helped quite a bit though.

@StarFox: The appearances of Mother series-related paraphernalia in the Smash Bros. series has absolutely NOTHING to do with Earthbound's cult following in America and EVERYTHING to do with the Mother series being much, MUCH more widely popular in Japan. Now, that doesn't explain the lack of either Mother game on the Japanese VC, but I guess you can't have everything...
@Reala: I'm sure there are, in fact, still hundreds of games that COULD be released on VC without licensing issues if the companies that owned them would bother. Just to start with, we've got giants in the gaming world that aren't even supporting VC AT ALL, such as EA and Activision (yes, Activision released ONE VC game...but only one, with nothing else forthcoming; given their extensive catalog, it barely even counts). Then you've got other companies that USED to support it much better before Nintendo's bad business practice of keeping people in the dark over release dates pissed them all off. And Squenix is supporting very, very slowly probably partially for that same reason, and partially because that just seems to be what that company does.

Trying to think of what's left for Square-Enix to release:FF6 probably won't come if they plan to release FF5 and 6 on 3DS (as speculated because they didn't do them on DS).3D World RunnerRad Racer 1/2The remaining Quintet games: Robotrek and the SoulBlazer trilogy. OK, fine, ActRaiser 2 DQ1-47th SagaKing Arthur & the Knights of Justice (won't come because it's a license game)Chrono Trigger (ported to DS)Mystery Quest (who even remembers this NES game?)(not counting Breath of Fire 1 or Paladin's Quest since Square/Enix only translated them)(and Japan's library wouldn't be complete without 3D World Runner 2, Ginga no Sannin, FF5 (see FF6), Front Mission (ported to DS), DQ5/6 and Mystic Ark, Wonder Project J 1/2). The other Enix games I can think of are licensed games: Violinist of Hameln, Mahoujin Guruguru 1/2, Papuwa-kun.)
