Laugh it up, but when you hit 35 or 40, and especially if you have kid(s) waking you up for a variety of reasons, a good night's sleep is (1) way more necessary to function the next day, and (2) hard to come by. I would love the assistance . . . may help me figure our when I really need to end my night time gaming sessions . . . .

@TCGiceman595 : Mine too! 4 copies, three of which were claimed by pre-order. I pre-ordered, got a text saying the store had it, but store reluctantly sold it to me saying my pre-order was no good (???). Then again, when I walked in and asked for B2, they replied, "What system?". FACEPLAM.

The question remains whether North America will get two separate cases packed in a cardboard box, as the game was sold in Japan. I read somewhere (probably here!) that a Nintendo exec. stated there were be no difference between the NA and Japan release in this regard. Fingers crossed (and pre-ordered, Day 1 acquisition regardless).



bluedogrulez commented on Review: Castlevania: Dracula X (Wii U eShop / ...:

Surprisingly, I disagree with most of this review. Drac X is a great game. The soundtrack is not just good, it's fantastic. The Level Two design you complain about can be mastered with some work, so its more about game difficulty than poor design. Remember, games used to demand that you get better by trial and error before being permitted to progress. And make no mistake, its harder than NES hard, but that actually provides one incentive to buy it on the Wii U VC: Save states are totally justified in this one.

Great article, and what great comments! The Virtual Console could and should be continually updated, and amazing concept , but as noted above, so many classics are missed. My Top 3 wishes:
3) OutRun (Arcade). Often copied, never replicated.
2) Metal Gear (MSX) for North America. For years, we hear about how much better MG was on the MSX, and there it is sitting on the VC game list, but only available in Japan.
1) Punch-Out (Arcade Version). I have every released Punch-Out title and all are great in their own ways. But none match hearing, "Left, left, body blow, body blow, put him away!!"
