    From what I heard from the-nextlevel.com it's...

    Gradius
    Solider Blade
    Dungeon Explorer

    We're sure getting lots of TG-16 love and a better update than last week.

    If Lords of Thunder is released for the TG then that's worth the points right there.

    Wow, me too! I just got it for Sega CD this weekend. I thought the TG16 had the prequel or something (Gates of Thunder?). Did the TG16 and Sega CD both get Lords of Thunder?

    Gradius and Soldier Blade are up.

    No Dungeon Explorer.

    And I thought we were supposed to get Kid Icarus today.


    EDIT - OOPSIE!! Dungeon Explorer is up.... But it's not under the new releases for some reason.

    Has anyone confirmed these? I know Gradius obviously, but am not familiar with the others. Anyone have opinions? I haven't bought a VC game in quite a while.

    Is there an easily-accessible list of VC games online somewhere?

    No..Dungeon Explorer just came online today. It was online in the UK last week, and Japan has had it for some time. But this afternoon was the first time Dungeon Explorer has finally shown up. And yes...on my Wii, it was also not listed as a new title. My thought is that it was supposed to have been released on the US servers sometime ago, and perhaps was an oversight?

    I'm betting these games are sitting on a server with a flag to make them available or not and all that is needed is for whoever controls it to simply have the game suddenly appear to us. In any event..the VC games today were:

    Gradius for NES
    Soldier Blade for TG-16
    and
    Dungeon Explorer for TG-16.

    I have exactly 600 points left and Dungeon Explorer will likely get those...

    Supposedly, there was a bug in the emulation. So NoA decided to hold off a week.

    Probably the most organized VC list with reviews if you aren't quite familiar with the game.

    Later,

    We should at least have a master list here. Figured that since I'm running the update thread on HardcoreGaming.org, I could post that list.

    EDIT: Removed the list since I have all but forgotten about it. Here's a link to the full list on Wikipedia.

    All right! $24 for 3 games that I can already get for $20 along with 25 other games!

    Yes, I'm a little bitter... but Sega could at least be releasing games that you can't get elsewhere, like the Shining Force games!
