Some of those look alright; they have a similar look to some old Namco games like King and Balloon.

If Pole Position and Pole Position II came out for the VC arcade I would get them in an instant! Plus we need the superior arcade versions of pac man, donkey kong, galaga, dig dug, and so on.

I do wonder how long it will take America to get Space Harrier.

In all honestly I completely forgot VCA still exists.

Yeah. You'd be forgiven for thinking that. Nintendo really has let the VCA side down outside of Japan. Even with Europe having Space Harrier, it isn't anything to boast about.

Actually it is. Americans haven't even seen that game yet. In fact, I'm worried that Nintendo of America will stick to their guns and only release games from the early 1980's and before, which is wasted potential.

And Space Harrier it is.

When did NoA make a statement concerning what time period VCA releases would be from?

Anyway, VCA justifies owning a Japanese console by itself. Assault and Altered Beast are sweet.

Assault is good? Well that's good to hear. I didn't really think much of it from the video I saw of it on the VCA. Cyber Sled seems much better.

As for that statement, no (AFAIK, anyways).

I just hope it won't take forever for the next release.

Well, I liked Assault back in the day; I've not played Cyber Sled since the arcade -- I'll probably download it eventually!

Ah. I'm hoping the next game we get is Solvalou but who KNOWS when we'll be getting that next. >_>
That, Cyber Sled and Star Blade are all definite buys for me.

I've got Solvalou and Star Blade. I think if I had remembered Star Blade from the arcade I probably would have passed: like Space Harrier, you just continue until you reach the end, although unlike Space Harrier, the game is only around an hour all told and the control is way better. Both Solvalou and Star Blade use the Wii remote alone and the pointer controls the crosshairs, so the control is actually superior to the original arcade games which I'm pretty sure used flight yokes.

Solvalou is the better of those two because you have some limited control over the guidance of your ship (a la the original Xevious where you can move back-and-forth, but are forced forward) and its doesn't get too cheap with the deaths.

That's not what I mean. I mean only games from 1958 to 1984. We're actually going in the right direction with today's release of Space Harrier for the Virtual Console Arcade.

I'm guessing Splatterhouse is next.

I chuckle a bit every time I see Zero Wing. I would definitely get it just to see what the actual game is like. And to watch the opening 72 million times.

NOA needs to release this game FOR GREAT JUSTICE.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

They should also release the Mega Drive version of Zero Wing with the Engrish intact
