Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 17th April (Europe):

Just GBA for the Wii U VC, i suppose this is to be expected for the time being but how long will this trend continue? It's strange to be in possession of a next generation HD home console and to currently have only old handheld games to download. The GBA is OK but it should never be the main download diet of a next gen home console.

I rarely like the visuals or the button bashing gameplay they use for super hero type games like Batman. Theirs always a tendency for a movie like adaptation of the character rather then a comic book one which is a pity when u think of all the source material that's their from the great comic book artists and writers that built the Batman character. I'd love to see a Batman game that had an authentic comic book look and feel to it.

hiptanka...Forgive my ignorance when it comes to handheld systems and games i have played on handhelds but never owned one as i've always had a preference for home consoles, thus my purcahse of a Wii U. That's really the point, the GBA on the VC is no bad thing and playing on the gamepad screen is a nice option but like that u buy a home console to play games that were made for a tv screen not a handheld one.

hiptanka...Yeah the old Wii VC games were mostly full screen i'm not seeing this with the Wii U maybe it's because it's HD or is it that's it's matching whats on the gamepad screen. To find that the gamepad screen is actually limiting what ur seeing on ur hd tv would be quite disappointing. It could be too that the gamepad screen is the the reason were not seeing certain games and consoles coming to the VC and why theirs a focus now on GBA games. I like the gamepad and the Wii U console as a whole but I bought the Wii U mainly for the VC being that the old Wii VC is so good but i'm getting the feeling that the new VC may actually be more limited then the old one. I hope i'm proven wrong.

Mostly GBA games again, is this the future of the VC?, playing handheld games on a next generation home system. The more u look at it it's hard to understand handheld games on the Wii U VC it's like a strange backward step in the sense that the magic of the handheld was really to give u slightly inferior minimized home console games that u could play mobile in the palm of ur hands, thats the selling point, that should'nt be a selling point of a next generation home console. Home console versions of games are better, the only thing that makes the hand held mobile experience advantageous is that u can take it with u like with films and music etc... but like that the Wii U is'nt a mobile device. GBA is on the VC and that's fair enough but should'nt the Wii U be more about home console releases, i don't want mobile versions of games i have a mobile phone for that, i bought a home console because i want home console versions of games.

Nice article, i never had a Sega Saturn but i did have a Dreamcast and like the Saturn it had some great 2D fighters. I'd love to see these consoles on the VC.

hcfwesker...Yeah the arrival of GBA is'nt a bad thing but like that if this is the direction that Nintendo takes with Wii U VC we may never see home consoles like the Gamecube arriving on the VC which would be a serious disappointment. With the old Wii VC releasing so many home consoles and titles it was expected that Wii U VC would naturally improve on this service but i'm not seeing this yet.

I can understand some fans enthusiasm for hand held games on the Wii U VC but do u really want the Wii U VC to become a glorified Game Boy Advance, is this what u bought a Wii U console for? would u prefer to download Gameboy Advance titles over say SNES, Megadrive or say lets if it were on option Dreamcast ones. The Wii U is a home console and i think their should be more of a demand for home console releases.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

Not a home console release in sight on the Wii U, well i suppose that was to be expected this week with the hand held gamepad buzz but i'm really hoping that this is'nt going to be an ongoing trend. If i wanted an old hand held console i'd have bought one i was expecting more from the Wii U.

My only issue with handheld systems coming to VC is if Nintendo's VC releases become too gamepad and handheld focused which would severely limit the progression of the home consoles and their games on the VC. Gameboy Advance releases are OK but i would like the VC to be more about the NES, SNES, N64, Megadrive, Neo Geo, Arcade, Dreamcast, and Gamecube, that sounds a lot more interesting.

The Gamepad is definitely a useful alternative to using the tv but like that i bought the Wii U for use on the tv and not to play to handheld games. Although i'm not a big fan i can see the the logic in releasing handheld systems and games on the VC, it is a good way of using the gamepad and obviously theirs considerable interest there which is good news for Nintendo.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

I think theirs a focus here on releasing games that are to be played on the Wii U controller screen, i don't know if this is a good thing. Does this mean that the controller screen is going to limit what they can do in terms of releasing games. I notice even when playing VC games on a tv ur not getting full screen this was not a problem with the original Wii. My VC games on the original Wii are actually displayed better on the big screen.

The reality is u don't buy a Wii U to play portable hand held games, the Wii U controller screen is a nice alternative but it's not a truly mobile portable device. For the most part u want to play ur games on a HD TV, whats the point in making the Wii U HD if ur releasing games that are to be played on a small screen.

antonvaltaz...A pleasent surprise if this is true because it is starting to look like the new VC is pretty much Nintendo only this time round and while thats not a terrible thing being that Nintendo have developed so many good consoles and games, it would be disappointing at the same time to realise that a lot of other consoles won't make it to the VC. That's what was great about the old VC the sheer variety of quality consoles and games.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

The VC has NES and SNES and while i don't have any issue with Game Boy Advance games being added i would much rather have seen a N64 or Gamecube entry. Where has the Megadrive and Neo Geo gone? if there not there it likely means that the Dreamcast wont be coming anytime soon either, even the VC arcade is pretty much being ignored.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

While it's always good to see more games and consoles being added to the Virtual console i'm not that excited about handheld ones. I can understand why it's being done and their will be a demand for it being that the Wii U has a handheld controller but it is'nt a handheld machine. With the Wii U being a more powerful machine u would expect more of a progression with the VC, u would expect access now to game libraries and consoles that the orginal Wii could'nt emulate.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

With the Wii U VC and the Wii U overall Nintendo seem to be sticking more to games that were released on Nintendo consoles or were developed by Nintendo themselves which is fair enough being that Nintendo has a fantastic library of games but variety is the spice of life and it will be disappointing to find that certain games just won't get released because of that. Will any non nintendo consoles appear on the new VC?, it's been over a year u have to wonder. It would be a let down if that were the case but like that if VC Arcade was improved upon it would'nt be so bad.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

A slightly better week for for the Wii U VC but overall it's starting to look like the new VC is actually inferior to the old VC. I don't see any Sega or SNK titles yet, the variety of consles and game developers is what was great about the old VC. I was the expecting more powerful consoles to be added to the new VC along with the old ones but u have question if this will happen at all. Things would not be so bad if they emulated more arcade games like a Final Fight Arcade or a Marvel vs Capcom 2. For example i love Street Fighter 2 on the SNES but i'd like to able to play Street Fighter Third Strike on the Dreamcast too,maybe this will happen down the road, i hope it will but i'm having doubts.

Theirs not too many new exciting cd games on the way but whats surprising is that the virtual console eshop is not realeasing much stuff either. From what i can see their are no Mega Drive or Neo Geo games available on the new virtual console, no arcade releases either. I thought i might be seeing some Marvel vs Capcom or SNK vs Capcom oreven a new console being added. The Wii U is a nice little console but they really need to start releasing stuff for it.

The Wii U virtual console needs to be improved , even the old Wii has a better catalogue of games, more systems and more publishers. The new Virtual Console just seems to be going over old ground which is fine being that it is retro but some upgrades need to be added. I was expecting a general improvement all round with the Virtual Arcade, Wii Ware and so on, i'd like to see games like Street Fighter Arcade, Final Fight Arcade and Marvel vs Capcom being released along with the SNES versions. Hopefully this will happen somewhere down the line.

Slightly puzzeld why more people would want to see N64 games on the Wii U Virtual console then Dreamcast. The Nintendo N64 was a decent system and being that it's already on Wii it's the more likely to be added but i think the addition of Dreamast and Gamecube games would be a step up and would bring more attention to the Wii U.

Off topic but as a matter of interest is the Wii Classic Pro Controller still available in the shops, many Wii games and virtual console games can't be played properly or at all without one. Their seems to be no real point in even transferring old virtual consoles games to the Wii U without the old classic wii controller.

The Wii Pro Classic controller is what i'm after, they seem to be scarce, are they still available in the shops?. A lot of virtual console games are redundant or can't be played properly without a controller, even with a Wii U transfer a Wii controller is still needed.

Game-Over commented on Review: Super Street Fighter II (Wii Virtual C...:

I love Street Fighter but i already have the Nintendo version of this, i'd get the arcade version if it became available, it's highly unlikely that it will though. The retro aspect of things is what i like about the Wii, i far prefer the old Street Fighters to the new ones the graphical style of the latest versions puts me off totally, hopefully the virtual console and arcade will continue to improve on the Wii U.

Whats next Animal Crossing HD, their is a demand for these type of games but hopfully the Wii U won't be quite as flooded with them as the Wii was. Games with a bit more of an edge are needed for the launch. I'm actually more intrested in seeing how they improve the virtual console, the virtual arcade etc.

Game-Over commented on Shinobi's StreetPass Modes Explained in New Tr...:

Fantastic intro but the actual game visuals and gameplay look disappointing, looks like a mindless button basher of a game. It's another case of they don't make em like they used too, i think this game is rated 16 just to make it seem slightly edgy. What's wrong with just going back to basics and making some good 2D titles.

Game-Over commented on Review: We Sing: UK Hits (Wii):

Their is too many games of this type being released , i'm looking at some of the latest titles , We Sing, Animal Crossing, Paint Splash and on it goes theirs very little their for the mature gamer, very little their for someone who's looking for a game with a bit of an edge to it. Hopefully Nintendo will change things up a bit with the release of the Wii U.

Am i the only one out there that does'nt like the visuals of the latest Street Fighter games, i'm not even a fan of the way it plays. Give me the old school anyday over this new stuff, i much prefer the road SNK went with the look of there games, the latest Street Fighters just look like Tekken they don't have the Capcom look.

Will the Wii U be able to download old gamecube games or even dreamcast games, it will be intresting to see what it can do. Downloadable games and content is seriously important now, Nintendo needs to be able to match Sony and Microsoft in that department.

Hopefully the Wii U is slightly more powerful then both Xbox and Sony i think it needs to be, it's not hugely important issue but as a new machine in a new decade it should it have a bit of an edge over the older competition.

Game discs become even more redundant then the consoles that play them, i prefer to download it's a far better way to store stuff and as a retro fan i'm lucky in that sense being that a lot of what i like is there for download.

I don't like scrapping old systems it seems like such a waste but like that theirs only so much stuff u can keep. I've let a few consoles go over the years only to find that games i had on them never became available again, SNK vs Capom being one, Street Fighter 3 being another, although that is being released at long last for download. Hopefully the Wii U will have a good virtual arcade i like the download format.
