What about Faxanadu for the Nes?

Faxanadu is good fun, stiff, but fun. I originally got it when it came out on the NES and I wonder if I still have it in the attic of my parents house somewhere actually... Good amount of backtracking and always make sure you have enough "golds!" The passwords are long so the VC save state would be a nice help if you like modern conveniences like that
"Daggers and Wingboots, Mantras and Monsters Await You" so if you are up for that enjoy exploring the World Tree!

Sounds pretty rad! I'm guessing it's a bit in tune with Zelda: Adventure of Link as far as the combat is concerned? I should just check out a few videos for it and see how it is. But I think I'll hold off on it for a while though since I wan't something short yet sweet at the moment, especially after groing through Resident Evil Zero for the past 7 days which took me around 18 hours total to finish.

Mega Man 5 would of been perfect or even Adventure Island II. hmmmmm, vhat' to play!? I wan't something retro before i tear open that Toys R Us box that incases the awesomeness that is my 3DS.lol

What's the best FF game available right now? I've never played a FF game before and am curious about the series.

No new VC releases this week. I really hope Nintendo makes more N64 titles available. Before the Virtual Console's lifespan of attention dies out. If it's licence issues, why are there more SEGA titles than N64?

Because SEGA love rereleasing games.

That's probably the reason why they don't have a console anymore. They couldn't keep up, so they got bought out and just make games now. Still I'd like to know why there are so few N64 titles.

I can't believe Nintendo is holding off on the most wanted VC titles. If they use the all the titles I've been wanting to see so badly come to the VC, to publicise the WiiU. I might just loose my sense of loyalty to Nintendo. What a sham.

'Tis a shame my friend. If you want a lot of unreleased games then may I suggest buying some of your favorite old consoles and you can play whatever game you can get your slick hands on!

Hello Confustious, I don't see how being patient pertains to what I was saying.

Harvest Moon

Harvest Moon (SNES)
This is the original Harvest Moon (the first one in the series). When it was new I was awfully addicted to it. I redownloaded it on VC because it is a great classic - and I haven't married all girls back then (it has only two save slots). It's one of the simpler games in the series, but that's a positive thing. It's still pretty rewarding earning more money, expanding your home, adding animals, a wife and kids to your ranch. It has tons of different endings too. From all the games you mentioned, with this one you get most playtime value.

Earthworm Jim 2 (MD)
I was never a fan of Earthworm Jim. His games were pretty rad and challenging though, but with some flaws in the gameplay. The second entry is more of the same, so if you liked the first one, you might as well be getting this. People say it's not as good as the first one, but that's just a question of taste imo.

Super Ghouls'n'Ghosts (SNES)
This is a really difficult action platformer with great music. I recommend the Mega Drive version because it's a easier. I'm such a lazy b lately. If you're into this series you could get them both as they're very different from each other. The SNES version is unique in the series (as in: there are no ports of it).

Dynamite Headdy (MD)
One of the hidden MD gems. It combines anything from sidescroller to shmup, from light adventurous exploration to brutal core bossfests. Some outstanding pseudo-3D-stages are still great to look at today (especially some of the gigantic bosses later on). Out of the three platformers this is the most imaginative, graphically advanced and actionpacked one. It's pretty tough later on too. Getting to the secret ending is a lifetime achievement, even more so than beating Super G'n'G two times in a row.

I recommend Harvest Moon and Dynamite Headdy above the others, but Earthworm Jim 2 and Super Ghouls'n'Ghosts ain't bad too.
