theDude commented on USA VC Update: Mega Man 3:

Wow, this came as a pleasant surprise. I figured Europe would get this, then we'd get it like a year later. About time we get something before Europe.

Anyways, I think there is way to much vitriole in this thread directed towards Nintendo. In case you didn't notice, there were two other games released:
"In other news there are two games up for grabs on WiiWare today. Gameloft’s excellent Brain Challenge which is a good alternative to the Brain Age games on the DS and a surprise game called Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam."

In case you haven't noticed, Nintendo now considers Wii-ware releases and VC releases one and the same. The fact that this site distinguishes between the two is irrelevant. Consider if Nintendo released 3 VC games and 3 Wii-ware games a week. How many people could actually afford to keep up (not to mention the hard-drive space issue).

So to those of you "looking for another option," how about looking into the Wii-ware?

Reading this, I have to wonder one thing:

Did the Bush administration take lessons from NOA prior the the Senate Hearings? They seem to be masters of obfuscation and misdirection.



theDude commented on WiiWare Publishers Lament Release Date Shambles:

I agree with just about everything that's been said so far.

I used to try to defend Nintendo, but have given up trying to do so, because their practices reek so horridly. The fact is, Nintendo no longer cares about the few who actually purchase large amounts of their games or eagerly await the arrival of some classic game. They only care about the casual crowd who only purchases maybe a few games and could care less about release dates. Do you think granny in the nursing home has maxed her memory with as many games as she could get? Do you think the soccer moms who fawn over Wii Sports regularly check gaming sites for the latest news and rumors about what may be coming out for the VC/WW? The fact is, doing things like giving out release dates or developing a better memory solution would cost Nintendo time and money. And for what? What return will Nintendo see on this investment from the vast majority of their consumers? Nintendo doesn't care about you, me, or this site... They're too busy riding the money train to money town. Its time we faced this fact.



theDude commented on Metal Slug:

This game looks interesting, and I might look into it. However, one thing I'd like to know is its size. I don't have much room left, and I'm trying to make every page count. Is there any good reason why this isn't listed with every review? I mean, you had to download it to review it, so you should know its size.
