    Assuming they don't have some special DS touchy bullshit going on, they are like the originals. Which is awesome, as G&W games are awesome fun. For the most part, they are point based skill games with no real end.

    Actually, doing the math, it would be a better deal to just eBay a copy of Game & Watch Gallery 1/2/3/4/Collection than buy all of them for DSiWare (unless you only get the ones you like, I guess).

Players take direct control of Flo as she runs around to seat patrons, take orders, deliver food, take payment and bus tables as efficiently as possible within the time allowed. Players who are fond of traditional control schemes may also use a point-and-click style with hotkeys to aid Flo in her quest for customer satisfaction, which is reflected in a heart meter that empties as customers lose patience. If the meter empties completely, then the customer will leave the restaurant.

    Original platform: Nintendo 64™
    Publisher: Square Enix
    Players: 1
    ESRB Rating: T (Teen) – Mild Language, Mild Violence
    Price: 1,000 Wii Points
    Description: Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is a tactical RPG originally released for the Nintendo 64™ system. Featuring a gripping storyline with many possible endings, plus a genre-defining character class system, this strategic epic has rightly retained its place in the hearts of tactical RPG fans for more than a decade. The game tells the story of Magnus Gallant, a recently graduated officer of the Palatinean Army who is assigned to the troubled southern region of his native land. There he witnesses the plight of the lower classes – the victims of a tyrannical ruling elite whose only thought is for the preservation of its own lofty status. With civil war brewing, Magnus is faced with a terrible choice: to betray his own noble origins in the name of liberty, or to turn a blind eye to the evils of his rotten society.

    Oh yeah, Wii's getting turned on tomorrow even if I have to rub my nipples to get it done.

    Some folks are actively dissecting the data from the EUR VC release file. The awesome thing is, by what they claim, this is not a port of the CD version. It's instead a rom of the MVS cart. So, if you have the means, or peripheral access to them, you can make an MVS/AES boot of Ironclad of your own sometime soon... Or buy one for less than $500 (yes, that much or more for a bootleg MVS copy) once they start getting churned out. I don't even want to think about how much monies you'd need to pry an authentic Ironclad MVS out of someones collection... I've only managed to google references to a single known copy.

    Heavy hitting releases as of late... I'm fairly impressed.

    Today's Virtual Console releases are as follows.

    Zaxxon
    Original platform: Arcade
    Publisher: SEGA
    Players: 1
    ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Mild Fantasy Violence
    Price: 800 Wii Points
    Description: Travel back to a time when a lovable alien phoned home, gas cost a mere 90 cents a gallon and everyone was wearing high-tops, leg warmers and had big hair. This was the early '80s, and this was when video gamers nationwide were wowed by the cutting-edge graphics and sound effects of the first three-dimensional-like intergalactic arcade shooter: Zaxxon. Touted as the first game to put video display in perspective, Zaxxon featured "looks" and "sounds" like actual aircraft flight, allowing players to command their ship just like a real fighter pilot. Dive, bank, fly left and right, and up and down - Zaxxon had it all. Fly through heavily armored space fortresses while strafing fuel tanks, dodging walls and blowing up enemy missiles and gunnery. This game is littered with explosions. Then take the fight to the enemy fighter fleet and destroy the aggressor ships with extreme prejudice. Blasting pixels has never been so fun.

    800 points for Zaxxon? Never was much of a fan of the game, but that seems way overpriced. Is that the standard price point for arcade games now?

    It's just Sega

    This is actually an improvement. After starting at 800 points, they actually released a few arcade games at 900 and 1000 points before returning to 800 points.

    Anyone that wants these should just pick up their collection on the 360 and PS3. All of their Virtual Console arcade releases are included on that game along with a ton of other content.

    ^ You're talking about that Ultimate Genesis Collection right? If so I would say that's a def. purchase for any 360/PS3 owner

    Yes, that's the one, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.

    All the arcade offerrings they've released on the Virtual Console in Japan and the United States to date are included on that collection.

    Hopefully, they'll start to expand their offerrings a bit in the future so some of them will be worth purchasing for owners of that collection. I'd love to see things like Turbo, Outrun, Super Hang-On and so on being released on the Wii.
