  • Feature The Neo Geo Shooters We Need On Virtual Console

    Come on SNK! Less fighting, more shooting!

    While it's fairly common knowledge that the Neo Geo system sported a rather sizable library of fighting titles, many people don't realise that the system also featured an extremely impressive assortment of shoot 'em up releases as well. In fact, several of these games rank as some of the best shooters of all time among avid fans of the genre. So why is it..

  • News Ten Games We'd Like To See On The Virtual Console In 2009

    We've already experienced two years worth of Virtual Console goodness since the launch of the Nintendo Wii console back in November of 2006 and despite some reservations about what 2009 will bring as far as Virtual Console support goes, we're trying quite hard to remain optimistic that this year will be another strong year for the service.

  • Feature Top 10 Racing Games We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

    Outrun?!

    Racing or driving games are sorely underrepresented on the Virtual Console. Why is that we ask? They’ve always been popular with gamers since Pole Position on the Atari 2600. In the vain hope that powers that be at Nintendo ever visit this site for inspiration, here are the driving games which we feel deserve consideration for the Virtual...

  • Feature Top 10 Shmups We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

    Since I've been fortunate enough to witness all of the shooter love in the comments lately, I thought I'd take a moment to share the love with a new top ten list chock full of shoot 'em ups. Although there have already been quite a few outstanding shooters released on the Virtual Console, there are still a lot of great titles left between the various consoles. Today we'll take a look at ten of the best. No need to thank me, just enjoy the list. :P

  • Feature Top 10 Neo Geo Games We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

    The Neo Geo console was a lot like a Rolls-Royce.

    It wasn't necessarily that much better than the other consoles on the market at the time, it was just a hell of a lot more expensive. Not only that, but if you managed to somehow survive the $650 price tag the console hit you with, you'd still have to shell out another $200-$300 per game if you...

  • News RPG Titles Dominate Nintendo Power’s Most Wanted List

    As we reported a while back, respected US magazine Nintendo Power recently asked Virtual Console fans to submit which games they would like to see on the service in the hope that it would make the Big N sit up and take notice. The results are now in and (unsurprisingly) SNES RPGs dominate.

    Here’s the reader’s top 5 most wanted: Earthbound (Super NES) Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars..

  • Feature Top Five Most Wanted Virtual Console Games

    Now that the Virtual Console Archive has a commenting facility we thought what better time to ask what are the games you would most like to see on the Virtual Console. The catch is you can only pick ONE game per format and you have to give a brief reason why this should be released before any other games.

    Here's my wish list to kick things off: NES...
