    Still no Gain Ground.
    Updated my list. Thanks!

    Another good week for the VC. Contra 3 was my favorite in the series, and Mario Kart 64 is my favorite N64 game. I'd take Gain Ground being delayed over Comix Zone.

    Hmm. Never cared much for Mario Kart 64, but I'm all up on some of that Comix Zone.

    I like a lot of the games that came up today, but decided not to get any right now. I want another wiimote and nunchuck, which will run me $60 when they're finally available, so I'm waiting. I'm still playing that damned R-type!!! Stupid mechanical level. Making me memorize in a shooter and stuff. God!!

    Feb. 5, 2007 - http://press.nintendo.com/articles.jsp?id=11194

    Today Nintendo adds three new classic games to the popular WiiÖ video game system's Wii Shop Channel. The games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo adds new games to the channel every Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week's new games are:

    Super Mario WorldÖ (Super NES«, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): During a vacation in Dinosaur Land, Princess Toadstool gets kidnapped and a spell is cast on the inhabitants of the island. When they stumble upon YoshiÖ, a young dinosaur, MarioÖ and Luigi learn that Bowser is responsible for the terrible misdeeds. Now, all Yoshis are trapped in magical eggs that Bowser has hidden throughout seven castles. Many hidden paths aid Mario in making his way to Bowser's castle, completing 74 areas and finding all 96 exits. Discover items, including a feather that gives Mario a cape that allows him to fly, or a flower that shoots fireballs in layers upon layers of 2-D scrolling landscapes. Players can even ride Yoshi and swallow their enemies.

    VIGILANTEÖ (TurboGrafx-16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): Brave the streets of New York City in this side-scrolling beat-'em-up game. Thugs kidnap the beloved Madonna, and it's up to players to become vigilantes. Players fight their way into enemy territory to get her back. Enemies attack with weapons like iron pipes, chains, guns and motorcycles. To fight back, players can punch, kick or use the "nunchaku" item that appears in the stage. Players must use each of the attacks effectively to defeat their enemies. To clear a stage, defeat the boss that waits at the end. Players fight their way through exciting stages that include the City Streets, Junkyard, Brooklyn Bridge and the Backstreets.

    Gain GroundÖ (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): It's the 31st century, and science and technology have progressed to the point that the human race is approaching perfection: no war, no poverty and no conflict. With nothing to worry about, the human race seems destined to live forever in harmony. But what if Earth came under attack? By this point in time, people did not know how to cope with problems or conflicts, and had completely lost their survival instincts. In response to this, the United Earth Government created the Gain Ground system, a war simulator that would help humans rediscover their lost instincts. After several terrible malfunctions, the creators became prisoners in their own creation. Now it's up to players and two courageous comrades to go into the Gain Ground system, rescue their fellow humans and destroy the system. Players battle through different periods in history as they revive their survival instincts, while trying to live.

    Blazing Lazers? I have that game..and don't see much of a difference between it and say Super Star Soldier. I can wait on that...in fact nothing released this week is really up my alley. I have the SNES in the living room and have Super Mario All stars + World so I really don't need SMW on the Wii just yet.

    So if I get Super Star Soldier - will this give me my Blazing Lazers fix for now?

    One thing I always loved about Blazing Lasers was the great weapon upgrades, lots of selection, lots of different power levels, does Super Star Soldier have this?

    If you want a blazing lazers fix..then get Soldier Blade. Had I known that Soldier Blade was gonna be released so quick...i wouldn't have gotten Super Star Soldier. Soldier Blade is basically Super Star Soldier but with more of everything...so if you want a shooter fix...Soldier Blade should tied you over.

    Updated my list, thanks aiko!

    Another good week. Though there's nothing I'd get if I had a Wii, Super Mario World is my second favorite game of all-time (the first being Super Metroid, of course).

    Funny you mention that, because the Zelda NES on the Wii's VC is a direct port from that game. Just look at the copyright logo on the title screen (1986-2003)
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    I've got the weekly essays on this week's VC games up on my blog. You can check 'em out. Super Mario World is the obvious winner this week, although it's nice to finally see Gain Ground released. Hopefully, Sega won't always be late with their future releases.

    If you want to know what games are coming down the pike, I'd suggest checking out the other game blogs, which are tracking the games listed on the ESRB site. We can't tell exact release dates, but we know a release is imminent if it's been handed a rating.

    Here's the super-short rundowns of what I wrote this week:

    Super Mario World - 10/10 - Best of all the Mario games, one of my all-time faves.

    Gain Ground - 7/10 - Solid if underlooked strategic action game, fun for two players.

    Vigilante - 5/10 - Great coin-op conversion, but far too short and far too easy.
    Ghibli Blog - Studio Ghibli, animation, and the movies
    Daniel Thomas Vol 4 - Video games, music, and my musings

    Video Game Fanzines Forever!

    New Adventure Island is great! But Legend of Kage? Are they kidding? I guess I have played it recently, and it's not as bad as I remember it, but I'm pretty surprised they chose to release that.
