Chill guys. Ever thought that some people don't have the game yet? I was just saying that some who don't have it might want to get the VC versions of some GC games instead of the WiiMake versions for whatever reason. It depends on the pricing and how the GC VC titles run obviously but if the games cost about the price of the indie titles on the eShop (say, $10-20AU or something) and had the ability to play on the GamePad without the TV and a MiiVerse community surrounding it?... that'd be a pretty damn good deal.

Especially given the cheapest I've seen the Prime Trilogy, which lacks all of those potential features but includes WiiMote support, is around $30-40AU in bargain bins.

If the choice is to download it from the eShop and have it appear on the home menu with some kind of MiiVerse and GamePad support... or have to track down a copy of the Trillogy and potentially pay about the same without those features and have to wait for an extra mode to load? ... yeah, I can see why some might want to do that. Does that mean I've been conned? I don't think so.... and who said I already owned it? Or even that I was suggesting that I'd buy the VC version? Hell, I was just suggesting one possible reason why someone might want to get the VC version.

Sorry, I thought you were talking about re-buying a VC game on the Wii U that you already bought on the Wii just so you could play it without Wii Mode.

Some people don't have an extensive library of GameCube games you know. Maybe they'll release some obscure title that you never had the chance to play. The Wii VC had titles like Sin and Punishment for example, there's a good chance that the Wii U VC will do the same.

Ya, lets just hope they release all their 1st and 2nd party titles, and get all the other companies to release theirs too, if they do put them on there. Maybe even full Wii games in HD, like RE 0, 1, 4, Fatal Frame 4 could be an import. There's really no reason why they shouldn't just put everything on there really, because it cost nothing to put them on there, except internet service and electricity. It would be a great benefit for Wii U owners too, because PSN and Xbox Live don't have EVERYTHING on their shops. Just put the last 27 years on the eShop Nintendo...

I've never heard a Wii growl before, but I could've sworn I heard mine whimper once when I put in Little King's Story.

...in my pants.

I know, just sayin' I wouldn't buy any personally. After all, that is what the thread is asking. :)

Fair enough :)

Speaking of the thread topic I'd probably get Wind Waker if I had a choice of any games in the GC library. I already got Pikmin as a New Play Control game, I'm not really that interested in Luigi's Mansion and Sunshine isn't something I'd get before Wind Waker. So Wind Waker for me. Will browse MiIVerse and so on when new games appear to see whether or not they're worth getting though. That's what those things are for, right?

Although the first game I'll get when the Wii U VC launches will probably more likely be A Link to the Past. I have never actually played it and I never got it on the Wii VC for some unknown reason. I could get it now obviously but I'm not going to bother while it's not clear what happens to Wii VC. If the Wii U VC has GamePad support, which it probably will, and if they don't let you transfer Wii VC titles, which could easily happen, I'd really regret getting it now. So that's the first game I'll want to get on the Wii U VC.

I would very much like to see Resident Evil Zero on the Wii U, if it would be possible to play it on the GamePad.

None are on the eshop yet. In fact, I don't believe Nintendo has even confirmed that GC titles will be available for download.
But it's very likely and I think Nintendo has hinted at the idea.

The only classic GC game that I still need to play would be Luigi's Mansion. Maybe Eternal Darkness and Killer 7 too.

Since my GameCube works perfectly, and will be easily accessible by the time GCN games are even announced, I won't be getting anything I already have. That being said, Wind Waker might be worth the download. Couldnt get into Ocarina, but I like the artstyle of WW better, so maybe I can try with that.

I never played Eternal Darkness now that you mention it, same with Killer 7. Other than those I've played all the games I want from that console, and know most of them like the back of my hand. Same with N64, SNES, NES, and Wii games I've played.

Eternal Darkness. It's the one game on GameCube I regret not buying.

Eternal Darkness really is an awesome game. Hopefully it can be released on the Wii U VC and then they release a sequel for the Wii U. Where you can use the gamepad to look around while examining items and objects. That would be awesome. But no scanner. There's enough games with scanners.

Super Monkey Ball and Double Dash most of all. Those are still my favorite games on the system.

Personally, I'd much rather have Double Dash, but in HD. and supporting online.

Unfortunately don't have cash
But if I had a wii u, I'd want Double Dash, period. My only worries are (would be) about controllers - GC controllers got destroyed

I loved Double Dash (!!) and Luigi's Mansion, but I can still play them on Wii so I'l go with Paper Mario, Sunshine or the Wind Waker because I haven't played those (surely Zelda Collectora edition doesn't count).

This is a signature.
I mentioned signatures, which makes this a meta-signature,
A meta-signature mentioning meta-signatures is a meta-meta-signature.
Hence, this signature is infinitely meta. Does Meta-Knight have a self-awareness of his own name?
