I have 800 points. While there are some games I would like to download, they're not necessary downloads to me.

I don't know whether to wait to see what comes later or download a game now.

Is it worth commenting on this anymore? Does anyone read these? I sure as hell know I don't!
Well anyway I vote for Desert Strike and Krusty's Super Funhouse! Why haven't these been released yet? I would have though they were sure things!

EA doesn't support the VC and Krusty is a licensed game which are quite expensive to reaquire the licence to.

Same here. I decided to get rid of my 800 points by downloading Breath of Fire II. It's as good as I remember it, but I think the emulation might be a bit off. The backgrounds go fuzzy while you're walking left or right. I don't recall that happening on the SNES version.

...in my pants.

Does anyone know a good VC game for 500 points? Preferably not an NES game, since i buy all my NES game for my NES now, unless it is a rare one.

I think the only VC games you can get for 500 points are NES, SMS and Commodore (anyone remember that system on VC? :) ), and a few arcade games (though most on VC are 800-1000, I think).

I'm interested in Magician Lord because it looks absolutely fantastic. But I'm not quite sure. I've heard that the game is hard as nails. But I've also red somewhere that the original Neo Geo console allows players to save their progress on a memory card.

Does anybody have this game for the VC and can confirm that this feature (save to memory card) is still intact in the VC version?

I recall the reviews saying nothing about saving progress, but that feature no longer matters, now that the Wii has savestates.

@Mickeymac: Yes, the reviews really say nothing about it. And the suspend mode save enables the player to pause the game indefinitely but unfortunately doesn't function as a "save state". And for NeoGeo games (which Magician Lord is) even the suspend mode feature is not supported.

But in a YouTube video I've seen that the game has two options in the title screen
"Play start" and
"Memory Card Continue"

But I'm not sure if this works on the VC without a real Memory Card from the NeoGeo system.

The Neo Geo games I have downloaded do have memory card support, so I would imagine this game does too.

@brooks83: Thanks for informing me! Even if it's not 100% sure, I think I take the risk and buy that game. (It just looks terrific like Ghouls'n Ghosts and Shadow of the Beast mixed together.) And I think Nintendo are conscientious enough that they would've removed the "Memory Card Continue" on the title screen if it wouldn't be supported.

BTW: @Brooks83, which other NeoGeo games have you downloaded which have memory card support. Maybe I'm interested in them, too.

I have 2020 Super Baseball, Ironclad and Fatal Fury Special, and they all support it. The memory card just saves where you last left off, it's not like multiple saves that you can choose from. But if you do get it, let me know how Magician Lord is, I've thought about getting that game as well.

Sounds good. I don't expect more. I just don't like it If I have to completely start over every time.

Thanks. That's nice to know. Though I'm not a fan of sports and fighting games, Ironclad could really interest me. I have been giving serious thought about getting this. Now that I know that you can have a savegame, I think I'll add it on my wishlist too.
I don't know when I'm getting Magician Lord. Maybe next month or so. I'll report back how it was.

The save states not apply in N64 or Neo Geo games. But both features the save data that originally used for the game. All Neo Geo games supports the save memory data.

I just bought Magician Lord and played a bit. It has indeed the Memory Card save as expected.

It looks beautiful, music is nice and it has this really cool sort of creepy fantasy look with magic and dilapidated walls and Zombies and all and is really well done. Something like Ghouls'n Ghosts and it's tough as nails like GnG too. Thankfully we have the Memory Card Save which is imho an absolute must for this title.

The only thing that really gripes me is that everything retro looks like bleh on an LCD flatscreen. I want my CRT television back. Now! (But that's obviously not the game's fault.) :-)

Yes, Magician Lord is an excellent game. The Memory Card save helps you to save the level where you die, so there isn´t any problem to try hard each level.

Is The Last Blade the best fighter available on the WiiShop? Or would I be better off just putting those $9 towards the cost of the Samurai Showdown Anthology?

I'm not a fan of fighting games. But according to NintendoLife reviews the best downloadable fighting games are:

Samurai Shodown II (NeoGeo)
Rage of the Gladiator (WiiWare)
The Last Blade (NeoGeo)
Streets of Rage 2 (MD/Genesis)

which have all a 9/10.
For the anthology: Sorry, I Don't know.

Last Blade is better than 6 SamSho games put together, trust me on that. For one thing, Last Blade is actually accessible to some degree, and has a much better pacing to the battles. I also found the general systems to be better overall. I like SamSho, but The Last Blade really is better in nearly every way.
