    Oh don't get me wrong. I know R-Type kicks ass, and I will end up buying it. Really the only games I plan to buy will be the TG16 games. Those are the only games I don't have and probably won't get(for awhile anyway) physical copies of.

    You're on DP and don't own these carts? Good lord! Just kidding. Personally, I welcome a boatload of TG 16 games. I never played R Type III on TG. How is it?

    I've been writing VC reviews each week at my games blog, Videogames of the Damned. This week's games are up, and you're free to stop by and read my humble opinions. Virtual Console always goes through this good week/bad week cycle, and this week happens to be the "bad" week. At least we got R-Type 3, instead of Super R-Type. That would have just been painful.

    Here's the short version of my reviews this week, and all the other VC games. Again, you can read everything at my blog, so send your hate mail over there.

    January 15, 2007:

    Xevious - Bandai for NES - 5/10
    Moto Roader - Hudson for Turbografx - 4/10
    R-Type 3 - Irem for Super NES - 8/10

    And here are the "short" archives:

    NES:

    Baseball - 2
    Donkey Kong - 5
    Donkey Kong Jr. - 5
    Gradius - 7
    Ice Hockey - 8
    Legend of Zelda - 10 (duh)
    Mario Bros - 5
    Pinball - 3
    Soccer - 2
    Solomon's Key - 7
    Super Mario Bros - 10 (duh)
    Tennis - 2
    Urban Champion - 3
    Wario Woods - 5

    Super NES:

    Castlevania 4 - 9
    F-Zero - 8
    Sim City - 9
    Street Fighter 2 - 9

    Turbografx-16:

    Alien Crush - 7
    Bomberman '93 - 7
    Bonk's Adventure - 7
    Dungeon Explorer - 8
    Military Madness - 6
    R-Type - 9
    Soldier Blade - 8
    Super Star Soldier - 9
    Victory Road - 5

    Genesis:

    Altered Beast - 3
    Columns - 5
    Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine - 7
    Ecco the Dolphin - 10
    Golden Axe - 7
    Gunstar Heroes - 10
    Ristar - 6
    Sonic the Hedgehog - 10
    Space Harrier 2 - 6
    Toejam & Earl - 10

    Nintendo 64:

    List on the first page updated. Btw, R-Type III is on the SNES. There isn't even a TG-16 version of the game (at least in the US).

    You gave Ristar a 6? What? Meanwhile, you're tossing a 10 at Ecco the Dolphin.



    This list is apparently useless to me, so I'll pass on stopping by your blog.

    Okay. Confusion...

    Is it R-Type 3 or Super R-Type? Super R-Type sucked ass with all the slowdown.

    Japan is getting all the good games. The best we have is SMB. And I've got so many copies of it, including the arcade version, why get another?

    R-Type 3.

    I don't see how Japan is getting all the good games. We've been getting the exact same ones, only a few weeks later. If anything Japan is a good indicator as to what's coming for VC for us.

    Hey, I'm just curious and maybe you guys know the reason behind this and can elighten me about it. I have no interest in purchasing any VC games (unless they were like $1.99 or something), but I did go to the VC area to check out the games and how they have it setup, and I also went there to play some free demo's of the games, but there was only 1 problem....


    NO FREE DEMOS!!!!


    What's up with that? Both Sony and Microsoft offer free demos of their various games, and I thought that it would be standard practice to offer free demos? Sure I would expect them to be very brief, like 1 level, or maybe a timed game or something, but I figured they would have some kind of basic demo for you to be able to sample the game briefly before purchase. I'm also kinda suprised that there aren't any demos of actual Wii games either. It probably has to do with the built in storage in the Wii. Not enough space for demo's of real Wii games. But I'm thinking that if they offered demo's of real Wii games, more people would go out and acquire SD cards, and that would in turn inspire many more people to purchase VC games.

    What? Whaddya mean yer not visiting the blog? My opinions are pushing your buttons. That's the perfect reason to visit a blog.

    Seriously, though, I'm not out for anything more than my own opinions. I think I wrote that my thoughts on Ecco were influenced by the fact that it was the subject of my first published review. I just have a lot of good memories with that game, staying overnight at the girlfriend's house, yadda yadda.

    Someone else asked the difference between the different R-Type's. R-Type (the original) was an arcade game that also appeared on Sega Master System and TG-16. Two more sequels appeared in arcades but never arrived in the home. Super R-Type was an early Super NES shooter that looked good, but was plagued with slowdown. R-Type 3 appeared on Super NES around '92, and was much better. Whew!

    So, if you like shooters, R-Type and R-Type 3 are good choices for VC.

    playing games off SD card would be painfully slow.... it might be alright for some of the VC games, but a real honest to goodness wii game would run like shit. way to slow. you really need some kind of fast access rates to play these games, like from optical or hard drives. personally im glad nintendo finally realized theres an internet. free demos a few console generations away for nintendo to catch up to lol.

    for the record: i own a wii and 360

    Ahh, I didn't know that. So that explains the lack of actual Wii game demo's, but there should still be some VC demo's for the games. Just 1 level of the game or a timed demo that lasts 5 minutes would be sufficient. I also hope that Nintendo comes out with a little external hard drive for it, so maybe they can offer full fledged demo's of actual Wii games. I'm so used to trying demo's out on the 360 and PS3 that it just seems strange to not have them at all.

    New titles today?
    Been looking around and didn't see any.
    Nintendo's website doesn't show the title up to date.
    I have two basic food groups, fast and frozen.

    There are more games. According to Sega's site, three new Genesis games are being released today. Gain Ground, Comix Zone, and Bonanza Bros.

    Nintendo hasn't updated their page, only listing Zelda 3. But we've known about Sega for a couple weeks now, and unless someone reports differently from actual Wii surfing, I'll assume that it's four games this week.

    Hey, another good week! What's with the good week/bad week thing, anyway?

    Added Link to the Past to my list on the first page. I'll add the Sega titles whenever I get official confirmation that they're available for download.

    Damn, I need money. All sorts of good stuff in coming out on every god damn system I own.

    Anyway, I'm glad R-Type 3 is up. R-Type for TG16 is OK, I guess, but I already own R-Types, which owns much face since it's R-Type and R-Type 2 in one sleek package.

    Only Zelda:Link to the past was posted today. I just checked the Wii store and that is the only new VC game available as of right now. So if Sega was planning to release any...then I suspect they released them to Nintendo and it is up to Nintendo to decide when they go up on the VC store.

    Zelda's cool, not dogging a great Zelda title, but I was hoping for some more TG16 titles.
