will1 commented on Publishers Remain Tight-Lipped On Black Monday...:

This should be the NOA motto for VC: If you feed your dog "scraps" and he eats it every week then why go out and buy actual dog food...
Ninty would probably sell ice to eskimos if they could get away with it... And yes, it IS Ninty's fault... the Wii may turn out to be a disaster but the NDS is rockin!!
On another note, who is going to get the 1:1 motion add-on. that would make a full control set-up (wii-mote$40, nun$20, classic$20, 1:1motion$30?) cost around $100 x 4 for family night... wow and that's just controllers! Any other "extras" I should buy? Voicechat, zapper, sports device, wiifit, rockband, maybe storage too... I just got robbed by a NINJA!!!

will1 commented on Nintendo Responds To US Release Date Queries:

WOW!! Too bad for Wii' I saw this coming... Nintendo once again is disturbing the force and p'o'ing those developers and gamers they so need right now, also they still have not listened to any consumer requests. Although I hear there will be tru 1:1 for the controller (wow 2years later) that does what it is supposed to. NOA really dropped the ball on most every feature they have boasted about! I know I should not post here anymore (sorry Cheez) but I can't help it... I am addicted to watching how badly NOA handles its VC... which was one of the main reasons I bought a Wii. Ha! I also bought a Wii 2yrs ago with high hopes of seeing two games in particular, Sadness and Day of crisis. I love Ninty's retro years from a gaming standpoint and business as well... But I honestly have more fun taking from NOA then them taking from me! Emulation killed VC before it even started. I work for a Japan owned Corp. and from my experience they ran the company by exploiting the best workers and putting profit before consumer satisfaction.
Okay Cheez I'll try not to post anymore but GL' with VC

Go NDS!!!
@Taco_Human, R4' or Elink all the way I agree but those topics are banned from discusion. R4's rock!
@bass, "...Virtual Console is a way of making money from the uninformed." Not trying to skew your words but that's how I agree that Ninty targets the un-informed.

"Nintendo had an empty E3 this year and Miyamoto apologized afterwards. It was a good call on his part because Nintendo is finally back in competition as a console developer and they can't afford to alienate anyone like they have so often in the recent past."

-Too little, Too late... again.

At least Myamoto is rich... and ready to retire.

NICE, I got flagged off once again for proving a point...
oh well...
This is my last post but the following still remains FACT:
NES- 700+ / NEOGEO- 150+ / SNES- 100+ / N64- 300+ / SEGA GENESIS- 100+ / TURBOGRPHX- 100+
So that's like 1500 games. If by miracle Nintendo decided to release JUST 2 games from any sytem every week until all games were released that would be.... like 15 years. Sounds like a long wait.... NOW let's take away all the great titles from companies Nintendo is not going to work with (RARE). I only have one thing to say and that is " Where's Conker!!" "Perfrct Dark!!" games will wii never see... =)
Nintendo has been out for 2yrs so that means we have 208 great games to choose from right?? SWEET!!!! only 13 more years to go. =(
NOA RESPONSE WAS:
Please keep in mind that there are various factors involved with releasing older game titles on the Wii's Virtual Console. We average about 10 new Virtual Console titles per month, which means that some months will see more than 10 new releases and others less than 10 new releases. I will, however, be sure to share your feedback regarding this issue to the appropriate personnel for further review.
Sincerely,

Ha! im laughing at your wii... see what happens ya just proved my point. Nah don't get me wrong I just sold my wii and couldnt be happier but I still play VC on my Elink (winks) this will be one of my last weeks posting.
@Mickeymac. Sorry bout the tech talk I must just be old... but you are spot on.
@classicmike, just who is the angry one?? trust me im good, I just hate to see ppl get flamed for having an opinion. If you are so happy with your wii then comments like mine and North99 should not bother U. Peace!

will1 commented on USA VC Update: Super Fantasy Zone and Gley Lancer:

Ha NOA was showing off wii music before the Wii even released! Wow there must be soo much depth to that game being that we waited 2 years.
@North99 wow, fanboys/girls flamed U hard... Trade or sell your Wii if you are not happy with it... I ain't mad at cha. I traded at EBgames which I really hate cuz they ripuoff but I still got 350 for system, two contoller setups and a few games. and am very satisfied with my NDS (w/Elink) and PS2 now. Theres nothin wrong with not liking what everybody else likes (fanboys). Don't believe "you should be grateful even though we are getting crappy releases" . Fortunately I have never owned even a PS2 so I have the advantage of buying one for cheap and playing an expansive library of games like GodOfWar, SilentHill Collection, RE collection, FatalFrame collection, MGS collection, FinalFantasy as well as Rock band and any Wii games that are released are almost certainly from PS2 ports. I am very Greatful...
Just remember... If someone laughed you and your Wii how would you feel?
Oh ya, Fantasy Zone is alright but I have it already... @UKnowIt Good luck finding any Rare games unless its DK U R SOL. =)

@Jerichoholic Josh, TMNT (turtles in time) is awesome. I played last night and LOVE it. Fighting Crang w/ his giant suit brings back so many qtrs crunching memories... My favorite thing was trying to see how many footies I could chuck at the screen.
Turtle Power. Oh ya Battletoads were better but Rare made that so we'll see it on XBLA prob if not already.

The Wii will be like karaoke in a few years... only being played at parties... I just traded my Wii for a new DS and a few games (ninja gaiden rocks). I still have $175 left for the Xbox360!!!
@ CHEEZ the new Xbox ships in Aug w/ a new Jasper chipset. This chipset is said to have finally addressed the previous issues that plagued the Xbox (RROD) which has cost the company around a billion dollars, and it is going to be only $300!
Sorry guys don't Flame this post but if you want TRUE VC of your choice, get DS + Elink and show your Wii who's the boss! =)
Best of luck waiting for those VC games!

Ha! I just read that game called Sadness isn't coming until Aug. of 2009... I thought this game was going to be one of the first games released for Wii... 2yrs ago! oof! looks like Ninty did it again... another gimmick at E3, maybe they should have just made the wiimote that way in the first place instead of making it an "add-on" 2 yrs later. My Wii is starting to look like my Karaoke machine in that it only gets used when I have friends over and even then my K-machine gets more use. After two yrs and about 1000$ I am not impressed, in fact I have been a fanboy for more than 15 years so I have been patient for sure but now the time has come for Wii to go... maybe I'll kick myself later (but I highly doubt it.) Never played XBOX1w/splincell mod (vc?) and graphics are far better also AAA titles can be found for less than 15$. (im trading for DS and Xbox1 and still gonna have 100$ for games) Good luck waiting for all the games. I'm done trying to pay NINTY for what I already can get for free. (elink)
Guess im the loser but it takes one to know one 'cough' NINTY 'cough'
Peace out Y'all and don't believe the hype!

I think E3 is "press" only this year but its in L.A.
I don't think Ninty has much going on there so I'm not holding my breath on that. Yay wii got 2 vc games this week!!!
I agree with post #40 not a bad idea... Ninty should have done that a long time ago...
And how does getting the lessor quality games out of the way create consumer satisfaction??? I have not been satisfied with my wii for a while now...
If E3 does not blow me away with some huge surprise and show they actually listen to consumers instead of generating profits then it will be a DS and an Xbox1 for me. ( I never played Xbox or 360). I can use the DS for "party games" (wi-fi) and use my Xbox1 and splincell (vc?) for a more hardcore experience. Nobody even plays the wii in my house anymore... I hope it improves soon.

Anyone remember Castlevania64, Wii= w/e...
Nothing that interests me this week but that is quickly becoming the norm... Xbox Jasper comes out in august and will address the RROD issue and may have Blueray... This week I am on a castlevania kick so where is Castlevania Wii?? I hate to say it but I went back to emu and couldn't be happier playing the games Big N isn't giving me to "buy". I am just dissappointed in nintendo... once again the math say it all.
Nes- 700+ / Neogeo- 150+ / Super Nintendo- 100+ / Nintendo 64- 300+ / Sega Genesis- 100+ / Turbo graphix- 100+

@firebrand- Ha!! that is too funny cuz it's true every week... I bet Nintendo could even sell ice to eskimos if they wanted.

(Whine..) You win man, The Wii is the best system ever. This thing does everything... Hd quality graphix, Built in hard drive, DVDplayer, Music player, Easy Online play and voicechat, T.V. downloads, an awesome classic arcade library, not to mention All the great games coming out this year like RE5, SilentHill5, GearsOfWar2, NinjaGaiden2, CODModernWarfare, Fable2.... Oh! wait thats XBOX360.
Ha! Nintendo resold me a GC but w/ motion controls AGGH!!!!
Why did they changed the name... it was too obvious...
Revolution= a. movement in or as if in a circle
b. one complete turn in a circle

MIYAMOTO is a marketing genius. Rarely do you see a company invest so little (in regards to technology) and profit soooo much. It's the perfect strategy... Graphics, Depth of the Game, Online play, VC... These were a small part of NoA's plan. Something quick, fun and easy to play was the big idea. They get a comsumer to be excited about buying useless extras such as Bal boards and Sports packs with various accesories and sleeves and wireless nunchucks and VC controllers and zappers and probably swords soon not to mention the Wii is basically a Gamecube with motion controls and sooo many ps2 ports it hurts. OOF!! NINTENDO is Killin' it hard... Make That Money Boy.
So I think NINTENDO is the winner BECAUSE they keep expenses low and profits high. This being said it is safe to say nintendo will no longer be getting their money from me ( $800+) unless there are drastic inprovments... Way to go Big N.. U win.. Now release the cool games you showed 2 years ago like Sadness and Day of Crisis or even Wii Music for god's sake where did those go???????

Well I wrote to Nintendo of America... here's what I wrote.
Hello, I know I am just one man but I just wanted to let you know that I am
feeling seriously disappointed by the game release history of the Wii so far.
1) Shallow use of online support... its been almost two years??
2) Slow Virtual console release. At the current rate it will take 13 years to have a diverse game library. Very little 3rd paty support.
3) The first two issues have been virtually ignored by Nintendo for to long.
Last, I know the company is not trying to compete with other consoles but if
Nintendo does not step it up soon then my business will be elsewhere in the
future. I have been a fan of nintendo since childhood so I hope things are
being done to adress these topics.
HERE IS THE RESPONSE...
Hello,
We appreciate your comments concerning the recent number of Virtual Console
games that have been released. Please keep in mind that there are various
factors involved with releasing older game titles on the Wii's Virtual
Console. We average about 10 new Virtual Console titles per month, which means
that some months will see more than 10 new releases and others less than 10 new
releases. I will, however, be sure to share your feedback regarding this issue
to the appropriate personnel for further review.

Nintendo just leads us to believe that something great is coming and the hype is what sells for Nintendo. they don't even have to try to put effort into but a few games and the rest is all marketing that we fall for hook line an sinker. Smart company in a sense they are making huge profits with little effort. Bad business to basically bash the fans of the company in a interview.

More Poo from our beloved VC. NINtendo won't stop until wii do. Wiiware is doing better but this is about VC. NINTENDO will try to sneak in whatever sold the least back in the day to make up for lost sales and so far it's working because only the fanboys are buying these games. ( Hi there J.K. hows your week? )
Lack of sales will show the company a need for improvement on the VC.

I have been posting weekly of my BOYCOTT of this poo... I will not be Buying the "SLUG" due to the fact that there is an Anthology out for the system $30 (Nintendo feeds us its poo and we eat it and like it again???). City Connection... I would have preferd CHASE HQ for a crap driving game. Still one should at least admire the release of 4 games total in some way or form. This is good but I still ENCOURAGE the VC boycott. NINTENDO will give us better if we don't eat the poo...

The ONLY way Nintendo will listen to US is if we stop buying the crap they give to us every week... Think like this. ( If you had a dog that would eat your crap every week then why bother shelling out money for actual dog food... That is how NINTENDO thinks of us. When we stop eating the crap we will get something good. YES nintendo won't read this but they WILL listen to a lack of sales. Support the cause and do the BOYCOTT on crap games.

I just got stabbed in the face through the internet but that is okay cuz nintendo has stabbed the opposite end repeatedly by outing any old school gamers and replacing them with robot ninjas who follow orders and buy usless games that are inferior. If tetris attack was such a great hit why did NIN release a clone... and renegade... cmon mix it up we just got we did just get DD. Show me 2-3 games a week and I show NIN the money... also I want my Metal Gear, Maniac Mansion, Gaurdian legend, Lord of the Sword (sms), Out of this World, Galaga, Pac-Man. Oh ya and my Wii officially has a layer of dust on it... At least I have Elink.
P.S. - I believe we should boycott any purchase of these games until we as customers get what we want from the big N. Which is more 64 games and less old school crapp. I will Bash NIN til I get what I want ... If we all do it, then they will have to respond by giving more games and quality of games will go up too... Cmon guys ask yourself... "Why am I getting the shaft when NIN would not be here without my support over 20 years???" They are FEEDING US CRAP CUZ WE EAT IT AND WE LIKE IT. WELL I DONT LIKE IT ANYMORE!!!!

Lame, I am starting a blog and I encourage others to join me in saying just how let down wii all are in Nintendo as a company. I mean after so many years of playing the Big 3 ( mario, zelda, metroid) I have to say that I am rather disappointed. Don't get me wrong... I love nintendo but I am feeling that they as a company are going to leech us for our every last dime, all while keeping our hopes up for the next big game. I have spent $300(console) + $40x2(wiimote) + $20x2(nunchuk) + $20x2(classic control) + $60(crap VC games)... So that adds up to...over $500 on Basics!!! And I have a few games too... My point is, I'm not going to waste any more time or money on a system that cannot offer quality 3rd party games because they ticked them all off so much in the past that now they won't work together. Nintendo once said they were not trying to compete with Xbox 360 PS3... I think what they should of said is there was no way they could even think about competing with them. I have to wait until June 25th for survival horror that may suc and after that sept???? for a star wars that will pale to XB360 or PS3... WoW whats wrong with us guys??? Where are the options NINTENDO??? Its been two years already!!!!!!!

Ugh!!

I don't need these horrible games for VC. I want to support NINTENDO but the only good games that are coming out have been made like four times or more ( i.e. Metroid, Mario, Zelda ). We get it nintendo you can make a great mario games now can you share some of that goodness with other companies so we can get some rpgs that are not for the 10 and younger crowd... (pokemon). I can already see it now... Nintendo cancels VC release due to lack of sales!!! At least there will always be emulation!!! I am more than happy to pay for the same game I already bought when I was nine for 30 bucks., ya i'll buy it again but don't expect me to pee my pants for games that were at the bottom of the list then. guess what... they are still horrible games! If you want me to buy horrible games then release Maniac Mansion with wiimote compatability or something. We have to boycott these horrible games being re-released and quit convincing ourselves that these games are actually worth buying. Who's With Mii?

When are we gonna get some really good NES games...

Bad street brawler, Batman, Guardian legend, or metal gear, or paperboy, Strider, Sector Z, Shinobi, Maniac Mansion, Kid Nikki Ha!! I got way more. but all we get is Poyoyo??? Wt F
My faith in nintendo's Adult gaming community is rapidly fading with all the Shovelware and now the LaLa invasion on the VC. NES alone had over 700 games released in its lifetime ( and I owned a ton of them). If VC keeps releasing One or Two games a week for four consoles then you do the math and that means 2 games a week times 4 weeks a month times 12 months a year and thats like a 100 games a years so that means if they only release Nes games it will take 7 years!!!. I am no fool nor do I want all the games but I want some Megaman or metal gear or final fantasy soon or I am gonna be mad. Ha like anybody cares! (NINTENDO!!!) Forget it I am already Mad!!!
