Good point, Mickeymac. I may have to spend it on something for the VC. :|

True, but you could always wait until there's something you absolutely must play for that price. It's not going anywhere, after all.

I just got Battle Load Runner. Love it.

Now I'm trying to decide if I should get Military Madness. I like Advanced Wars on GBA, but I'm not to happy when I have to use every button. How pick up and play is this? Also, I'm considering Blades of Steel, if I liked it back in the day, should that mean it's still worth it?

Military Madness has great missions and good music but the controls could have been better. It's easy to pick up and play though, if you already have experience with Advance Wars.

I've heard that pokémon snap is on the short side, but I am not sure as I don't have the game myself. I'm not that far, but Secret of Mana is a cool game. Also because you can play with several people at once.

Secret of Mana, then Pokémon Snap, then something else, but not Gradius 3. :P

The difference between the three Turrican games is that each is a different game in the series. Mega Turrican is also known as Turrican 3, so it's not a port or something but the third in the trilogy. Super Turrican and Super Turrican 2 are also very different from Turrican and Turrican II. Simply put, there are 5 different Turrican games.

So are the Turrican games recommended or not? Because I`m leaning more towards Secret of Mana, lol.

I think Secret of Mana has Santa Claus in it. That would make it a good download for Christmas, unless you hate the Christmastide.

Yeah, I recommend getting Turrican! The Turrican games are hardcore run&gun awesomeness - right next to Contra, Mega Man and Alien Soldier of course. Graphics, sounds, controls and challenge - it's all there in perfect balance.

I still recommend Secret of Mana over the Turrican series. It felt epic back then, and it's the one and only 3-player-co-op action-RPG on the SNES so if you have a second player definately get this. If you even have a third player wanting to play this with you then there's absolutely no way around this gem.

I got Secret Of Mana, and found out how much of a great game it is!
Then I found out it's an open-world game and I suck at those. (I need a game to tell me where to go, darn it!)

Anyway, If I were to recommend a game that I really love to pieces, I'd suggest Dynamite Headdy. Although, you really need a classic controller to play it best.

Now here's where I need a recommendation:
Which Ogre Battle game is best? I recently purchased Soul Nomad & The World Eaters (hearing it was a lot like Ogre Battle) and I have some points to spend, so I'd like to know.

Why do astronauts backtrack?
They forgot the Space Jump Boots.

Alright! :D
Looks like I`m getting Secret of Mana first and I`m going to wait for Super Turrican. I`m siked now, lol.

Thanks SKTTR! :)

I currently have 1400 points and I am not sure which of the games in this list to download:
Shining Force 2
Soldier Blade
Ys Book 1 & 2
Breath of Fire 2
Phantasy Star 1
Phantasy Star 4
Faxanadu
Maybe Majora's Mask (time limit seems very irritating, might need someone's opinion on this though)

You posted this on VC-Forums as I recall. I'll say what I meant to say there but plum forgot:

The time limit in Majora's Mask isn't that annoying so long as you don't suck at the puzzles (like I do). With the Song of Time the game is beatable within The Time Limit, though that requires that you know what you're doing. Even if you don't, so long as you have the dungeon weapon, you having to do a dungeon over again shouldn't be a problem either. It only really gets annoying if you do the side quests, most of which are optional.

With that said, My recommendation would be Ys Books 1 & 2 and either Phantasy Star or Faxanadu. All of those games you listed are highly recommended, but those three are top priority in my opinion.

I'm trying to decide whether I should download Rondo of Blood or Castlevania IV. They both look pretty similar, it's just a matter of level design, I suppose.

Also: would you guys say that Phantasy Star 1 has aged well? I have a pretty high attention span when it comes to old-school RPGS, but I've heard there's an insane amount of grinding.

There's less grinding than in Phantasy Star 2 if I recall correctly, but there's still a lot I suppose. I still say it holds up better than Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, though.
