What will America complain next about not having? If its not one thing, its another.

Oh please, I remember gamers in EU complained plenty back in 2007 when they didn't get a Link to the Past on VC then when it was finally available, they complained about not having Star Fox 64 that NA got on VC. We don't have SMRPG, Kirby Mass Attack, Zelda DS, Animal Crossing Wild World, Wave Race 64 that EU has not to mention Mario Luigi Paper Jam for 3DS. I'm sure a lot of gamers in EU wouldn't want to trade places with NA.

Lawdy, NoA blesses us with a teardrop of rain in the desert! We'll be over here kissing NoA's rings and begging for the next scrap while ya'll are rolling around oily and naked in your piles of Super Mario RPG, Xenoblade, Resident Evil 4 and so on and so on.

But, yes, I'll be downloading Zero Mission, backlog be damned. I haven't played it since it was a brand new GBA cartridge. Can't wait.

You can all thank me for Metroid Zero Mission. I dug through several closets this week looking for my Gameboy Advance player and my old Gamecube so I could play MZM, thinking Nintendo would never release it here in NoA.

Well, sure as spitfire, looks like it's coming tomorrow, .........hopefully! (Fingers crossed)..... I'm convinced it's all because of my actions lol. And of course I'll have to download it (as my copy likes to randomly erase my Save Data!)

What should happen is that these games should be out in the e-shop in all regions at the same time, or at least in reasonable time frames. The same should go for Wii games, since those games aren't even emulated and there should have been more games released in 2015 then what actually was.

But I'm not even expecting much out of the VC in general anyway.

Well, yes, of course. That's why people get frustrated — Nintendo seems to think we still live in a pre-Internet era, when they could get away with treating some regions more poorly than others. But when you're exposed to Nintendo's goings-on in all corners of the world every day, it's to be expected that there's major discontent when one region gets shortchanged time and again (in this case, that region is their largest market, so the noise is loudest). People understand that logistics play a role, but we still recognize uneven treatment when we see it.

And to clarify, yes, I'm an American complaining about Nintendo of America. But as a long-time Nintendo hobbyist, I was around when the roles were reversed — I felt very badly for folks in Europe when NoE used to give them the short end of the stick time and again. Now it happens that American fans are getting that short end, and sure, I'm going to complain about it. But it's not a matter of showing one region preference over another; it's just a matter of pleading for Nintendo to get its act together and treat its fans in all countries with the same amount of consideration.

@VelvetElvis: One thing's for sure, us Americans don't have it anywhere near as bad as the Europeans did.

I predict Super Mario RPG on Wii U VC this Thursday to tie in with Mario & Luigi Paper Jam release on Friday.

I remember the mountains of complaints against the Wii VC in 2009. Despite the service having several hundred games on it, so many still complained. This is why I stopped taking the VC seriously at all

@IceClimbers: That's true. And it hurt them — with the exception of a few countries, Nintendo's market presence in Europe is piss poor. I applaud NoE for reversing their behavior (though it was likely too late to make a difference), but I'm baffled that NoA didn't learn from that example.

Of course, the parent company is notorious for limiting the autonomy of its branches, but that's another story that's probably a little too far off topic for a VC thread.

Complaining aside, I'm stoked to download Zero Mission today — haven't played that game in over 10 years.

Well that depends upon how far into the future NoA continues with their ways. They seem to be improving this year but is that only because of the NX and X months after launch they continue their ways from 2013-2015.

yep. we had to put up with yall guys for years to come. in fact, some folks tried to use the reverse psychology tactic and say "i dont know whats worse, the people complaining over the lack of vg games or the people complaining about the people complaining over the lack of vc games"
...ya know what?
the people complaining over the lack of vg games was worse.

If you feel the need to complain about a lack of games, just check the eshop again for VC games you may have overlooked or ignored the first time. Or just play that VC game again that you downloaded two years ago and only ever played ten minutes of.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

@Grumblevolcano

Wasn't it already confirmed that SMA4 on VC would have the e-Reader content ? Even if the news was just for Japan, it's not like it should be a much more difficult endeavor on the Western version.

@DarthNocturnal: The NA Nintendo site does confirm it, don't assume that just because Japan has something that it'll be available for the west though.
