fordianslip commented on Review: Super Punch-Out!! (SNES):

Really Don?

And none of us are lucky about this Virtual Console schedule. I went and got a 360 so I could play better games, and they have a whole library of older games I haven't hardly got a chance to touch(TMNT/Castlevania SOTN are better purchases than ANY of the VC titles I've bought).

So, I'm voicing my displeasure with Nintendo's VC release schedule by buying a 360, and putting any free video game capital toward that. Although I love this game, and if it comes out, I will be all over it.



fordianslip commented on USA VC Update: Enduro Racer:

Anyone have a site that tracks the number of VC downloads per week?

I'd really like to see the numbers on this game, compared to all the other possibilities/past weeks.

Here's the thing. The Wii shouldn't have a longer lifespan BECAUSE of the virtual console. The Virtual console is supposed to extend the lifespan of old games into the Wii's actual period of growth. The fact is, when the main wii games stop delivering, the VC console will be just as dead, unless it's ported over to the next gen system.

It seems like they're doing this one release schedule so they can keep releasing games for the next thirty years, over countless next gen systems. And by the time they'd finish with the back library for the systems now on their service, we'll all be payin' money to download the latest Gamecube Classic re-releases on the 12th generation, like Astrix and Mega Man Network Transmission.

Simple solution. WiiWare and VC get two games a week.

Personally, I think they each should get three, but those days have long since sailed.



fordianslip commented on USA VC Update: Mega Man 3:

When they started this VC service, they released three games a week. Across four platforms, I worried that they would not be able to get to a FIFTH of their catalog.

Now? Six systems, and one game a week. Whoo. I worry they'll get to 1/20th of their back catalogs now.

I wanted my Wii so I could download any game at any time. I thought, well, not right away, but one day by golly! I'll be able to download Mega Man 6 at 4:30 am without waking up a Gamestop employee! But this whole release schedule with their slacking has made me question why I bought a Wii in the first place, when I could just hook up my NES and buy any game I want off Ebay for 2 bucks.

Mega Man 3 is a great game, and they've released a few classics in the past two months, but ultimately, there's no way I'm ever going to be able to play something off the charts like, I dunno... Day Dreamin' Davey on my Wii, now is there?

And that disappoints me. Not that game specifically, but y'know... like... I'd love to grab Little Nemo Dream Master or Blaster Master or tons of other games that fell through the cracks years ago.

Think they're not gonna keep falling through the cracks now?

We should be getting six games a week. 3 from VC, and 3 from WiiWare. They should be handled completely separately, but they're not, and it's not like we can change it.

I'm just voicing my opinions by refusing to buy the games I would have bought had I been happy with the service on a whole.

I mean, I wanted my Wii to house my entire collection of old school games. Considering we'll be seeing a new generation probably within the next five years, I just DO NOT see that as a possibility.

And without knowing if I can take my VC lineup to my new system, I'm going to hold off on buying any more games for it.



fordianslip commented on US VC Release - 7th July - King of the Monsters:

Ooo. Blaster Master. I'd love to see that game released. That's not got any licensing issues, right?

I'm not gonna complain. I mean, I've been complaining, you heard them from everyone, so whatever. But I'm waiting here to spend some money. And I'll keep waiting for now.



fordianslip commented on Mega Man 1 & 2 Coming To North America Soon?:

The only Mega Man I can complain about is the anniversary edition for the Game Boy that never came out. I really wanted that back during the GB advance days.

Mega Man 2 is like, one of my favorite games though, and that alone might require me to repurchase it. Who knows.



fordianslip commented on US VC Release - 30th June - Fatal Fury 2:

My issue is I haven't turned my Wii on since April. I haven't bought a VC game since last October. So, I really don't have anything to play on. I've been playing Battle Network for two weeks and the Phoenix Wright series before that,

For Nintendo to miss me completely? As a semi-loyal gamer, I feel peturbed. I mean, I can ask for one VC title I want to download every three months, that's a semi-fair assessment, no?

@firebrand - Mega Man 9?! Serious? Wasn't that MegaMan & Bass for the GBA? Or is it a new version?



fordianslip commented on US VC Releases - 23rd June - Alex Kidd in Mira...:

Oh, no, not at all. But I want to be ABLE to have every game. I know that's a long shot but the more releases the week, the more likely this will come to pass.

Which, at this rate, means it shant.

That's not saying that if Earthbound is the only release in a week I won't gobble it up, but even if Mario RPG comes out and it's the only game, I'll still feel slighted. I just feel they're dragging their feet when it concerns the service, but hey, what do I know. I'm not in their market meetings.

I mean, I'm looking at the day when I can play things like Little Nemo or Rockin' Kats or Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout or little known tripe like that. Essentially, I just want more games to come out that I've owned so I could sell the hardware and have the software travel around with me.

I also hope they have a transfer service if the VC continues from the Wii to their next generation platform. But worries for the future.



fordianslip commented on US VC Releases - 23rd June - Alex Kidd in Mira...:

This is an okay week.

A good week is 3 games, regardless of what they are. Granted, I haven't downloaded anything since Super Metroid came out but still, but my goal for the virtual console service was to have access to just about every game imaginable.

The more games they release a week, the better the week is.

Granted, I am waiting for Earthbound patiently... and may pick up ninja gaiden 2 when said earthbound drops, but until then, I wait on the sidelines watching and scowling at the sheer lack of number comparing last year to this.
