The Virtual Console Archive on German TV!

Posted by Damien McFerran

It seems we are famous at last - we've made it onto TV!

Well, in Germany, at least.

Yes, the country that just can't seem to get enough of The Hoff also loves the VCA. We were featured on a recent episode of GiGa's 'WiiMotion' show, which, if you couldn't have guessed from the title, is devoted to Nintendo's shiny new console.

Although they only covered the Wii browser version of the site (which looks ok but isn't anywhere near as nice as the full version), they were quite kind to us. They did miss the point of the site a little by bemoaning the fact that our coverage of Wii-related news was poor (it's called The VIRTUAL CONSOLE Archive, guys!), they loved our reviews!

So there you have it, we're officially famous. Ok, so it's only a small-scale cable show on Germany telly, but it feels like fame to us!

Check out the YouTube video here (Feel free to leave comments on YouTube!).

Thanks to our friend Johannes for telling Wii Motion about VC-Reviews and also to Lohrien for capturing the video for us.

It's not a cable show.
Giga used to be on cable, but it's been satellite-only for some years now.

I guess the part about this being a VC site got lost in translation somewhere. But hey! Free advertisement!

Today Germany, tomorrow the world!

No! Not David Hasselhoff! Aaaargh!! *leaps off a building* Seriously, though, I never understood his popularity in Germany - even when I still lived there.

Didn't the Hoff singlehandedly destroy the monstorous Berlin wall using just the power of his music? No wonder he's popular!

That reminds me of what Hoff said about that thing, and that old women where all "Oh my god! Its the Knight Rider!"

But who could forget Hoff standing over the crowd of people singing "Looking for Freedom" with a piano tie?

I have also heard of this site for the first time on GIGA, and I must say, I realy like it.
Keep on the great work!

@all: It's a rumour that David Hasselhoff is famous in Germany...
Nobody likes him here just like in the whole world.



Yoakin said:

Well, there's no denying that he was quite popular over here in the 80s and early 90s.
He was the Knight Rider after all... And we all loved Knight Rider!

Congrats! I like this site a lot. It's not overly complicated and has everything I need including a nice little review of the games from a current standpoint and the original review when it came out and on top of that an embedded youtube player with videos of the games. I'll be visiting this site until the VC ends and that's many years off.
