US VC Releases - 10th December - Pokemon Snap

The first Pokemon game hits VC in the US today! It's the strange but fun Pokemon Snap for Nintendo 64, where instead of capturing Pokemon in Pokeballs, you capture them on film. The game itself is good fun, but as an overall package it is a bit lacking. Still, if you're a Pokemon fan, better make do with this, because this will most likely be one of extremely few Pokemon titles to come to VC (We think the only other one will be Pokemon Puzzle League). Another thing worth considering is that this version of Pokemon Snap has a VC-exclusive feature!

Also out today is perhaps the best baseball game of all time - Baseball Stars 2 for Neo Geo. Fast-paced action mixed with great visuals and a ton of flair make this an enjoyable game for any fan of the sport. And heck, even those who don't like the sport should check it out.

Today's final game is the last game in the Ghosts 'n Goblins/Ghouls 'n Ghosts series - The original, Ghosts 'n Goblins. It hasn't held up well compared to it's sequels, but if you like the franchise you should still find this pretty enjoyable. Well, now that we have the three VC-eligible G'nG games, Capcom, how about giving us some Demon's Crest?

A photography game, a sports game, and a platformer - Certainly a varied selection this week. Check out the reviews:
