US VC Releases - 23rd July - Shining Force
Posted by Damien McFerran
It's turned-based tomfoolery ahoy in this month's selection of US Virtual Console games - Sega's amazing Shining Force is here and whatever your viewpoint on this genre it simply begs to be downloaded. This is the original and best version of the game - ok, so the recent GBA port looked nice, but the gameplay was tinkered with in the most shameful fashion.
We also have that cute little nutsack that is Kirby! Ok, so he's the kind of mascot you'd imagine your kid sister liking, but you can't deny that 'Kirbs' has starred in some pretty dope games in his time and Dream Course is no exception. Well worth a gander.
Bringing up the rear is the BEST PINBALL GAME EVA - Devil's Crush. Ever wondered what would happen is Clive Barker created a pinball table? Well wonder no more, Naxat's classic title is here for you to download. Not for the easily scared!
Wow, three must-have downloads in one week! Surely no one can moan about this fine selection?
Oops, I shouldn't have said that.
