@Yellowkoopa: See i'm from AUS so we haven't even got Yoshi Story yet. The Wii U VC has been disappointing the fact we have only got 1 new tittle (DK64) and the fact we haven't even got all the ones the Wii VC had

@haigh1011: Yeah, VC has also been dissapointing in general in every region. It was really insane that it took the Wii U three years to get N64 games when the original Wii had N64 games at the beginning. (As well as the Wii U not even having the VC until a couple of months later after the Wii U launched).

Mexican prices of the Wii games went up today, they now cost 40% more. I wonder if this is happening in other regions, but this is most likely due to the weakening of the mexican peso.

Check out my super awesome Super Mario Maker levels.

Yoshi's Story was released on the Wii Shop several years ago, however, we won't get the Wii U version until Europe does.

@TomJ: If they don't learn from the Wii U, I'm sure they will screw it up again with the NX.

@TomJ

Why do they need to buy M2? M2 doesn't work exclusuvely for Sega (although they were behind most / all Genesis VC titles... but that kinda reinforces my "why do they need to buy them?" point). They've done a lot of stuff for several different publishers.

And it looks like they might be DOING VC work on Wii U. Apparently, we have them to thank for GBA games on Wii U.

@TomJ: Funny you mentioned M2! I just bought Space Harrier for 3DS. Now, I know on it's own Space Harrier is like a 5/10 game but when played with the smallest screen and the tilt cabinet option and the analogue stick, it felt really authentic and I would give it a 9/10 for their effort. It goes beyond a port of a mediocre game (that used to tell the whole arcade that you had just died! ' AAAAAaaagh' ) and more an accurate simulation of an 80s experience! So yes I'm not too sure how much work M2 did for this...but BUY BUY BUY lol.

Well considering none of the systems that have had VC, launched with any VC, that seems like a safe bet. Even if it's only a couple months we have to wait for anything.

It'd be wonderful if M2 did more than GBA VC. N64 and NES VC are plagued with lots of input lag and a dark color filter. SNES, N64, and NES VC should also have more visual options like changing the aspect ration and scaling. It's really disappointing that Nintendo can't emulate their own games properly.

I haven't experienced the input lag often. The only notable time for me is when I found it difficult to run in Super Mario Bros., sometimes it wouldn't work despite the button working for everything else. And I've had the dark filter sometimes too, such as in Gradius.

Turn off post-processing effects on your TV. Older games (and even newer ones, potentially) don't play nicely with them.

That said, some N64 games had "input lag" on the original console. OOT for example. Probably a framerate thing.

I noticed that a lot of the Wii U VC games I've seen were darker than on the original console and even the Wii VC. There should be an option to make the game brighter.

It shouldn't even be an option. The default and only setting should be bright.

@DarthNocturnal: I already have all of that junk turned off anyways. Older games not working well on HDTVs only occurs when you're playing with the original system and the HDTV does up-scaling and/or de-interlacing. The Wii U Virtual Console games don't have those problems because they're getting upscaled by the Wii U itself. N64 and NES games have lag added to them that weren't on the original systems. Ocarina of Time doesn't have any input lag on the N64.

@Geno-Breaker

Could've sworn that post-processing effects do affect VC titles. Or at least, I recall seeing improvement.

And I'm also pretty sure that there is a delay in OOT. I remember playing the GCN version and noticing that there's a slight delay between Link moving, attacking, etc, compared to other games. After seeing others complain online, I played the N64 release (note, not on an HD TV with all the fancy stuff), and noticed the delay was no different.

It's not a huge delay that really affects gameplay, but noticeable nonetheless.
