This is of course assuming they hold off by just releasing these titles via XBLA and the VC.
And while I've taken the bait on a few of these games at $5, $6, $8, and $10 a pop, it's amazing that you could get 28 Genesis games for $19.99.
Nintendo should REALLY look at a subscription based model...
I'm still waiting til someone releases a modchip that enables you to purchase games from other regions, or at least a goddamn 60Hz option in all the PAL VC releases (the exception being the TG16 stuff).
As a PAL gamer I'm kind of fed up with the situation right now, I'm not going to pay for slow/ bordered 50Hz games.
And though things like Blazing Lasers and Military Madness are awsome and worth every penny, we won't ever see gems like Final Match Tennis or Sin & Punishment over here.
I'm also hoping that someday someone will hack the emulators to enable the use of the Wiimote for SNES games, I mean, games like Super Bomberman only need 4-5 buttons at most, which could be easily mapped onto the Wiimote (A, B, 1, 2, +), so why not?
Or more importantly, how about Mario Kart 64 and other N64 games? Why no Wiimote + Nunchuk support?
I won't buy four classic controllers (those things aren't even wireless), but I'll definately buy four Wiimotes and Nunchuks.
Imho the emulators need a serious overhaul, regarding configurability, but that won't happen, until someone manages to crack them.
Atm Nintendo seems to make more money out of controllers than everything else.. just ridiculous.

I'm down with that, but I already have Shining Force I for GBA. Shining Force II would be grand.I'd like to take the moment to ask very very nicely for Shining Force I and/or II on VC, please!
Something like XBLA? If Nintendo would do something like that, they should somehow get the 1989 TMNT arcade game on there.Nintendo should REALLY look at a subscription based model...
Yeah, I'd take the SF's in any form- collection or VC. SF is pretty much the only game I can think of that I would spend the prices they are asking for on VC. Everything else I either own or have in collection format.
The amount of money they want is just TOO much for an impulse buy for me. If games were $1-$3 apiece, I probably would've spent $100+ on games by now- I wouldn't be able to stop myself.
I too am waiting on some Shining Force goodness. I already own the games but it's the one title that I'll rebuy. Just being my favorite, releasing it for the Wii gives me another excuse to beat it again.
It'll happen eventually, they're releasing Shining in the Darkness (or have released I dunno haven't checked the Wii in a few days.) so the sequals are sure to follow. Nothing I'd sell my Wii over if it doesn't happen immediately. :P

At least two good genesis games were released. I am hoping that nintendo will be releasing more n64 games on the vc soon.

Sonic 2 and Golden Axe 2 are good, but if you have them on the Sega Genesis Collection, it's pretty much pointless.
Two game have been anounced to be released on Monday by Hudson. There are:
World Sports Competition
http://vc-pce.com/usa/e/index.htm is the source. The site is owned and maintained by Hudson themselves.
The VC lineup is pretty good so far, but I really want to see some more N64 games. I've heard they are hard to emulate, but c'mon GIVE US Body Harvest, Pilot Wings, Banjo Kazooie, Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon, Bomberman 64, Blast Corps, ect. Then I will start down loading! I don't have a problem with whats on the vc right now, but most of the games I want I already owned.
Who would be doing the laughing Skaar, you? Because I don't think the games being put out are worth the money? Because Nintendo doesn't listen to their customers? Because Nintendo keeps rehashing the same games over and over again? It's not worth the $250 I paid for it? Because I'm a 32 year old gamer, who doesn't like playing Cooking Mama, JRPG's, Poke-my-mom, or these other kiddie games that (again) seem to flood every Nintendo console?
I can and do play both Metroid's, for free, on my PC, anyway. If Nintendo doesn't wanna get paid for it, that's all well and good with me. No loss, there.
For a 32 year old you're not exactly showing much maturity with the wii.
Again with the kiddie games on Nintendo consoles...
Personally, I'm looking forward to No More Heroes and Manhunt 2 for the Wii.
Aha...the whole Nintendo "kiddie" thing again. I won't beat the horse, but I would like to quickly add my thought:
Maybe many people are thinking about that whole ordeal exactly the opposite of what it really is. I am a 32 year old man, with a child. I purchased a Wii for *her*, and for myself in second place. My thought process is that it is an inexpensive console with some neat new ideas, guaranteed to bring many great things for her, and surely will spit out a good few games that I will really enjoy. But, again, she is of course coming first.
If you look at it in that perspective, maybe it is the younger (not *way* younger mind you) group that would be more interested in the consoles that are graphic powerhouses, consumed by realistic and most of the time violent games. Hey, maybe it IS the older crowd purchasing these "kiddie" systems....the crowd WITH kids
Enough said on that point. I really like the VC. Of course I have the games through emulation too, but there is something more convenient (and more legal obviously) about getting them for the VC. I have already purchased a few choice titles I really love.
I am really hoping to see more N64 games as well. Wouldn't it be great to see some other game systems added to the VC, such as Colecovision and 2600?
Nice point zektor. I think you're on to something.
Bloody Wolf sounds good! I been playing Dragon's Curse too much anyway... need new blood.

Yup, still a browncoat.
Also, in regards to the whole age-group thing, let me give you some stats from my social circle. Out of 10 29-32 year old males, 9 of us have Wii's, one has a 360. So, I agree with you, Zektor; it's high-school kids who are buying the more graphically-ballsy machines. Everybody I know my age is sick of FPS's and Final Fantasy clones.
Random Question: Anybody think we'll see Parasol Stars on the VC? I don't know if Working Designs renewed the copyright for the US release. Taito is publishing on the VC, so maybe it's possible. What do ya'll think?
