Like Mickeymac said, MUSHA is in the Aleste series just like the game you mentioned, so your best bet is to go with that one. It's pretty good.

How are the Adventure of LoLo games for the Nes?

The Adventures of Lolo aren't bad if you enjoy puzzle games like LIT and Frobot.

Haven't played Lit or Frobot, but I might give The Adventures of Lolo a try....I've got a bit of teeny weeny nostalgia for it, because I did rent back in the Nes days, but hardly played it. I guess i was just drawn to the cute and fun boxArt, but i hardly bothered with the game as it wasn't my cup of tea in those days.

After I'm done with Trauma center 2 on the DS, I'm most likely going to download ActRaiser....Which is going to be a brand new experience for me since I missed out on it. And I'm glad you can selection 'Action Mode' which gets rid of the simulation aspect of the game. Anyways, so how does ActRaiser hold up these days? I'm reallly looking forward to it.

I only have 2000 points and am hoping to get Ogre Battle: Person of Lordly Caliberand 2 NES games
Does anyone know any good NES games, besides metroid, LoZ, Mario, etc.
-I've played those and want some good addicting games that you can play over and over again.
Any recomendations? (also is Ogre Battle good?)

@countglasse Ogre Battle is a great game. I've played it for over 60 hours (it has multiple endings), but I'm also a fan of strategy games. Other gamers have found it boring and confusing.
-You might want to look into Faxanadu on the NES. It's an action RPG like the Adventures of Link or Simon's Quest--but much better than those two games. There will be times in Faxanadu when you don't know what to do next, and that can be frustrating. So I don't think you could call it addicting, it's more of an epic game. I still think it's the best NES game on the VC.

It holds up better than the SNES Castlevanias IMO. But you should know, the 'Professional!' Mode will unlock after you beat the game once--that means you won't be able to avoid the town building simulation levels at first.

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

I'd suggest Kirby's Adventure and Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse.

Well that sucks...Is there some cheat to unlock it? And as for Super Castlevania IV, that game is just brilliant. A 10/10. Easily the greatest and most atmospheric Castlevania title I've ever played. It's got the diangling whip so there for it automaticly destroys every other ClassicVania.

Faxanadu looks fun, how long do you think the game will last me? Also how's Blaster Master?

Blaster Master is good fun, though the continue limit can be annoying (of course, once you master the game it's not a problem).

It's hard to say. It took me over 10 hours to finish, but I was always backtracking for keys and free elixirs. Some people online are claiming they can speed run Faxanadu in an hour--it might be posible if you had the game memorized and never died (also skip the Tower of Suffer).

Welll, I'm a smidge stumped on getting ActRaiser now and that's all because of the simulation aspect of the game. How long exactly do those stages usually take to complete? I think I might just skip it and play the bug nuts insanely intense and crazy colorful 'AKA' Contra's bogus brother Gunstar Heroes for the first time.

Another killer gem I missed out on, and it's been practically with the Wii's VC from the start, so i think it's about time I gave it a shot! Hell, it's been ages since I've actually downloaded a Genesis VC title anyways...But at the same time, ActRaiser's music composer who did Streets of Rage is a freakin' legend and i'm dieing to try out the action based stages.

And what about Dynomite Heady and Ristar for the Genesis? I never played either of those growing up....

@waveboy Ristar is an absolute Genesis classic. I have the PS3 Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection and it is one of the best games created for the Genesis.

I have ActRaiser on my list to download to. I remember renting that game as a kid and I was blown away by the graphics because it was one of the first SNES games I played. I didn't like the simulation part of the game back then but now I am definitely tempted to revisit it and appreciate it the uniqueness of that game.

I personally liked them more than Gunstar Heroes. They're classics, and I highly suggest you give them a go. However, make sure you set Ristar on hard...otherwise it's a bit too easy.

Well Ristar it is! Well maybe in a month or so that is hehe. And It's funny how Ristar and Dynomite Heady completely flew past my head when I had a Genesis, but I guess I was more into the SNES at the time to even care honestly.

As for ActRaiser....I decided to try it out yesterday....Now, I enjoyed the Action stages as 'SNES-primitave' feeling as it all was, coupled by the brilliant and epic sounding, well at least for the first stage anyways.

But damn those Simulation stages.....I just couldn't get into it. I've never been into simulation whatsoever, and while i apperciate the uniquness and hybrid of it all, it just disrupted the flow of the action stages and made the experience come to a complete hault of semi boredum. I called it quits during the 2nd Simulation, plust i couldn't get the people to build a bridge over that bloody river.

I kept thinking to myself "I don't wanna do this" I'm not enjoying this part of the game, which technically is half of he game, so why bother with all of this junk(imo) to get to the good?....When really the good isn't all that great to begin with. This doesn't compare at all to Super Castlevania IV, but the action stages were still fun and i always looked forward to the Titan-esc monster boss battles.

The graphics were also pretty stellar during the action stages too imo, loved the enironments of the first stage and 3rd stage out of the 3 Action stages that i played. Anyways, I wish there was a code to start off with that would unlock Proffesional mode which basically ditches the simulation of the game. Because I really wan't to play it still...just not the simulation stuff. Ah well, I guess I'll move on to GunStar Heroes.....OR maybe stick with ActRaiser and try and put up witht he simulation crap.

I'm TOTALY recommending StarTropics.
One of the greatest NES games that I completely missed out on up until now. For shame! Zelda and Zelda II for the Nes simply can't compare with this one. I can't get enough of this game, let alone I'm only 3 hours in and almost finished the 3rd chapter....But when all said and done, my mondo mega mind has officially been blown away by this Nes Classic.

The items and weapons in this game are fabulous. As seen here, when you get 'The Mirror' it alows you to deflet those wizards projectiles, but you have to time it prefectly. Personally, I've always had a thing with deflecting enemy bullets and the like, it feels super satisfying and amps up the skill.

Anyways, I haven't experienced anything really like StarTropics, with the whole jumping on tiles mechanic to unlock buttons and doors, ect ect. It's incredibly fun, super challenging and highly addictive. This is the perfect example of what i loved about the NES era. I didn't expect to love the game as much going into it, but wow I'm a StarTropics believer haha

StarTropics > Zelda and Zelda II. No contest.
