Is Dig Dug worth the import price tag attached to it? I know Kirby's Adventure has a ton of content for an NES title, but do the other VC entries contain as much production value?

Well, Dig Dug is a classic score-based arcade game where you repeat the same basic stage at a rising difficulty level over and over going for the high score. Excellent game, near infinite replay value, but the type of stuff whiny "modern gamers" with no taste will complain about "having only one level" and "taking 2 minutes to beat".

Worth the price? On its own, yes, but you can find it on tons of Namco Museum compilations along with a bunch of other great games, and these aren't hard to find for cheap.

Also is Indiana Jones for the SNES worth 800 points?

Yup. Awesome game, almost up to the standards of the Super Star Wars series. Bought it on day 1. (hard to believe there was a time when "licensed game" (well, this is by Lucasarts, so it's not really "licensed") didn't necessarily mean "half-hearted cash-in", eh?)

Between the three available VC Kirby titles, which would you guys say is most rounded purchase? I've been otherwise informed that Kirby's Adventure has the most gameplay value, but what do my NL members have to say?
1) Kirby's Adventure
2) Kirby' Dreamland 3
3) Kirby Super Star

@WiiAboutU: Kirby's Adventure does have the most replay value and I'd recommend it over the other two titles. However, Kirby's Dreamland is a great title too and I'd recommend that you get it the next chance you get. As for Dreamland 3, I've played some of it but I didn't think that it was too great.

I purchased Kirby's Adventure @cheetahman91. Which RPG would you guys say is more deservable, Final Fantasy lll or Chrono Trigger? I enjoy lots of sidequests and plenty of diversity in the environments.

Each game has a good amount of side quests but I would have to say Final Fantasy III has more due to having more characters. Truthfully both are good games and you cant go wrong buying one or the other.

Both are kinda overrated, get Phantasy Star 4 instead

(but of the two, Chrono Trigger)

I've got a 1000 points left and I think I want a strategy title more than an RPG. I've been wanting Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordily Caliber, it seems like the best strategy title available on VC or the WiiWare service. Can anybody tell me if it's as good as it seems to be? I'll probably purchase Chrono Trigger or Phantasy Star lV in the future, because I don't want to be left with 200 Wii points just sitting around teasing me. Also, nintendolife informs me that you aren't able to experience every mission in one playthrough. So are you able to transfer your equipment and ranks you've collected into your following playthroughs or are you forced to start over from scratch?

As far as strategy titles go, Ogre Battle 64 is the best "real-time-esque" option, the Shining Force games the best strategy RPGs, Military Madness the best turn-based strategy game and Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV the best management title.

I'd say Shining Force 2 is the best game of the five overall, but it depends on what type of game you want. "Strategy" is a very broad descriptor.

If you're talking about Chrono Trigger then yes, you can transfer all your equipment, items, levels and stats over to a new game ("New Game +" option gets unlocked.) once you beat it.
